Plea filed in Supreme Court:
As per the media reports, some parents from gulf countries (mostly Kerala natives) have filed a plea in the Supreme Court of India, demanding more exam centres in the overseas country or the exam should be postponed until the situation improves. According to the reports, nearly 4000 students from the middle eastern countries have applied for the NEET 2020 (UG) exam. Now international travel is banned in India and if they visit India under Vande Bharat Mission flights then this will expose them to the risk of contracting the virus and also they have to spend about 21 days in quarantine upon arrival. These situations will increase stress and pressure on students.
