Postpone NEET, JEE Main 2020: Parents’ group to file PIL

NEW DELHI: The parents association which moved the Supreme Court against the University Grants Commission guidelines, is now planning to file a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) demanding postponement of NEET and JEE Main 2020 to December.

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is for medicine and the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main, for engineering. Both exams are scheduled in September; the association wants it postponed to December.

The association is likely to file the PIL today itself. Alakh Alok Srivastava, the advocate representing the association said on social media: “Despite our written request, Education Ministry and NTA have not yet postponed NEET and JEE Exams. Meanwhile, COVID cases are rising alarmingly and students are suffering from severe stress and anxiety. So, we are filing a petition in Supreme Court today for postponement of NEET and JEE.” The NTA is the National Testing Agency which conducts the exams.
