SRINAGAR: Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a review on Monday to discuss the growing need for adequate human capital in the face of an unprecedented increase in Covid-19 cases in the country.
Here’s a look at the number of significant decisions taken:
- Final Year MBBS students can be utilized for tele-consultation and monitoring of mild Covid cases under supervision of faculty.
- A decision was taken to postpone NEET-PG for at least 4 months and the exam will not be held before August 30. “Students will also be given at least one month of time after announcement of exam before it is conducted.
