The Union public Service Commission (UPSC) should designate Kozhikode as a centre for its examinations, M.K. Raghavan, MP, has said.

A press release here on Thursday said Mr. Raghavan raised the demand during Zero Hour in Parliament on the day.

Kozhikode was an educational hub with the presence of national-level institutions such as the Indian Institute of Management - Kozhikode (IIM-K) and the National Institute of Technology - Calicut. The University of Calicut and the Kannur University were also located nearby. An examination centre in Kozhikode would be of great help to students of these institutions.
