NEET 2020: Test centres to be doubled

A report in the Indian Express says that the NTA has been asked by the HRD ministry to double the number of test centres to maintain social distancing. The NTA is now planning to seat two candidates, two metres apart. This would mean that there would have to be 6,000 test centres as opposed to the 3,000 to accommodate 15 lakh candidates, the report also stated.
