Ranchi: The government of Jharkhand has extended the lockdown up to September 30 now. However, despite the extension of lockdown, the examinees of JEE and NEET to be held in 2020 will be allowed to write their exams as special provisions have been made for them.

Although, the Chief Minister is opposing the decision of the central government to hold the competitive examinations, he has also ensured that the examinees of the state face no problems in writing the exams whenever those are held.

Even the students living inside containment zones would be allowed to go out and write the exams.


The state government has issued new guidelines for the measures to be taken for containment of Covid-19.
