Odisha chief minister has urged to postpone the JEE Main and NEET 2020.

Bhubaneswar:26/8/20:  In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, Odisha chief minister Naveen Patnaik has urged union education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank to postpone the JEE Main and NEET 2020.
“More than 50,000 students from Odisha are appearing in NEET and around 40,000 in JEE (Main) this year. However, NTA has opened the examination centres for both the examination in seven cities and towns of the state,” read a letter to education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank.
citing the geographically inaccessible areas in the state, CM has said that it would be difficult for students residing in these areas to reach their respective exam centres due to frequent lockdown and shutdown in the state.
Citing that students from remote areas may be deprived of appearing for tests as they need to travel long distances, CM urged to open centres in all 30 districts of Odisha, so that students can go back home same day, facilitating maximum participation of students in these tests.
