Kerala demands NEET Entrance Exam centres in Gulf countries
Thiruvananthapuram - Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday sought the intervention of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in allotting entrance examination centers in the UAE and other Gulf countries where a large number of expatriate Indian students live.
"There has been concern among the expatriate students in the Gulf about writing the various entrance examinations including NEET.
This year's NEET examination is scheduled for July 26 and because of the travel ban from abroad, it won't be possible for those students to come to India to write these exams," the Chief Minister said while addressing a press conference at the Government Secretariat this evening.
"It is in this context that Kerala has asked for entrance examination centres in the Gulf countries," he added.
