Speaking on the reports of the allocation of an examination centre 150 km away for the Persons With Disability (PwD) candidates, Singh said at the time of registration, the candidate had uploaded their PwD certificate, but they were required to tick the same column in the original form as well, which many had forgotten to do and for this reason. In the absence of which, computer software allocated their examination centres in far districts, he added.

This time the commission tried that the examination centres of the candidates should not be more than a 100 km radius, he said. On November 5 and 6, the examination will be held in two shifts. The time of morning exam will be from 10 to 11.45 am. The reporting time for this shift will be 8.30 am.

Similarly, the evening shift timings will be from 3 to 4.45 pm. The reporting time for this shift will be 1.30 pm. The Haryana state transport will provide a free pick-and-drop facility to the candidates appearing for the CET examination, Principal Secretary, Transport Department, Navdeep Singh Virk said.
