Most of the aspirants were under the impression that the Centre would cancel the exam because of pressure from various political parties. However, after all decks were cleared, candidates started reaching their exam centres either in hired cars or personal vehicles. Following the footsteps of Madhya Pradesh, the state on Monday evening announced free transport for JEE-Main candidates. However, the late decision will not provide much relief to the candidates.
“I am on the way from Bharatpur with my son and his two friends who will appear in the JEE-MAIN exam in the morning shift in Jaipur. The online campaign has sparked confusion among them as they waited till the afternoon to leave for the exam centre,” said a parent, who is a RAS officer posted in Bharatpur district. Around 12,000 candidates will appear in Jaipur.
To avail free transport services, students have show their admit cards to the bus driver or the conductor. The service will be available till September 7.
