All Common Entrance Examinations in Telangana state which were scheduled to be held from July 1 to July 17 have been postponed, as per the directions of High Court. The State government has informed the High Court about its decision to postpone all the Common Entrance Tests EAMCET, LAWCET, POLYCET, ECET, PGECET, and others.
Earlier, the High Court has asked the government how it can conduct the examination when the lockdown is extended in the state. The High court was hearing a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by NSUI seeking postponement of all the exams including CET and degree, PG and engineering exams in the view of rise in Covid-19 lockdown.
Telangana Advocate General BS Prasad also told High Court that State Cabinet is likely to meet in a day or two to decide on the re-imposition lockdown in Hyderabad against the backdrop of rising COVID19 cases.
