NEET UG 2018: Stringent checks at exam centres

NEET UG 2018: Stringent checks at exam centres

Students from Karnataka have also been allotted centres here.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E Palaniswami has announced Rs 3 lakhs for the family.

Vijayalakshmi is not alone.

There are 1,07,288 registered candidates in Tamilnadu who would appear for the test in 170 centres across the State.

On the other hand, actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan also criticised the state government, saying, "In this digital age, expecting Tamil Nadu students to travel to Kerala and Rajasthan for NEET exam is not fair". The Tamil Nadu government has announced financial assistance and reimbursement of travel fare for candidates and a person accompanying them. Mint was unable to contact the student. "This is an injustice done to the students of Tamil Nadu". The state had abolished medical entrance exams, citing stress among students and the inability of rural students to afford coaching classes for entrance exams unlike their counterparts in cities. The incident happened at a matriculation school, a NEET centre, where a school official said when a question paper pack was opened and distribution began for four halls in the centre they came to know that they were in Hindi.

Burning Man Founder Larry Harvey Has Passed Away
Last year, a man died after running into the burning flames and suffering burns on nearly his entire body. The Burning Man festival (literally "burning man") is in the desert black Rock (Nevada, USA), 1986.

The state has arranged special KSRTC services to facilitate the smooth conduct of the examination.

The death comes against the backdrop of the Centre facing flak from opposition parties for not allotting centres for Tamil Nadu students in the state. This year the number has increased by over 30 per cent and even after accommodating 1,10,000 students some 1500 students could not be accommodated, NEET officials said adding that they could not set up more examination centres. Many from interior parts of southern districts were allotted centres in Madurai. The authorities also took care to prevent any traffic jams near the examination centres.

Sanyam responded to this outrage bysaying, "the board has taken care to allocate centres in the nearest city to every candidate who has been allowed out-station centres, considering their choices".

Hearing the plea, a division bench of Justices Huluvadi G. Ramesh and M. Dhandapani directed CBSE on 27 April to reallocate centres within Tamil Nadu. As many as 24,720 aspirants had opted to take the exam in Tamil. "However, in all other states, candidates have been accommodated as per their choice". "Why can't they write from here?"

DMK spokesperson Saravannan Annadurai said the Supreme Court decision is an "absolute shocker".
