The exams will be conducted as per guidelines issued by the Government for conduct of examination in view of Covid-19 pandemic.”
Of the 45 new centres, 19 centres are in new cities and remaining 26 centres are in cities like Bhubaneswar, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Navi Mumbai, Thane and Mumbai, that required more centres to cater to a larger student base.
