NEET is the first step in the journey of an aspiring medical professional. Prime Minister's Office on Monday announced that the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (Postgraduate) will be postponed for at least four months. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi authorises keys decisions to boost availability of medical personnel to fight COVID-19.
