The NBE has also introduced a number of protective measures to ensure the safety of the NEET PG 2021 candidates. They are as follows:
1) Same state centre - In the wake of the recent surge in the number of COVID-19 cases, the NBE has increased the number of test centres and testing seats across the country such that candidates who had chosen the option “OTHERS” have been allotted test centres within the state of their correspondence address, thus avoiding any inter-state travel.
2) COVID e-pass - Admit cards being issued to the candidates will bear a COVID e-pass for perusal of police and administrative authorities to facilitate movement of the candidates in case there is a travel related restriction.
3) Staggered entry of candidates at test centres - In order to avoid crowding at the test venue entry, there will be staggered time slots for candidates to report.
4) Isolation Labs - All candidates will be checked at the entry point for recording of temperature with thermal guns. Candidates with above normal temperature or any COVID symptoms will be allowed to take the exam in separate isolation labs.
5) Compulsory use of face mask - The candidates must note that they will not be permitted entry at test centres without appropriate protective face mask.
6) COVID-19 protective gear safety kit - All candidates will be provided with a protective gear safety kit comprising of a face shield, a face mask and 5 hand sanitizer sachets.
