The High Court took suo-moto note of a letter from a resident of Bhandara, Maharashtra, requesting the postponement of the JEE exams, and opened the matter for an urgent hearing today. The letter sent by Nitesh Bawankar set out the problems of students who appeared for JEE-MAIN investigation and stay in the flood area of Nagpur, Amravati, Akola, Chandrapur, Gondia and Gadchiroli districts.
He explained that the investigation centers could not be visited due to the flood situation in the areas.
The main JEE exam began across the country on Tuesday with precautions under COVID-19, despite protests from opposition parties and some students. (ANI)
