The National Testing Agency (NTA) on Wednesday released an official notice regarding a fake public notice with the subject line – “Conduct of National Eligibility Cum Entrance Test (UG) – 2021” is being circulated through various means, including social media. The test conducting body has denied issuing any notice declaring the exam date of NEET 2021 to be September 5.
“The fake/unauthorised public notice has been viewed seriously by the NTA, as it is being circulated by some unscrupulous elements with a motive to misguide the aspiring candidates/parents/guardians/public at large. The NTA is still in consultation with the concerned stakeholders for finalising a suitable date for the conduct of NEET (UG) – 2021, keeping in view the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” the earlier official notice read.
The NTA has advised the aspiring candidates of NEET (UG) – 2021/parents/guardians and other stakeholders to not pay heed to such fake notices and be aware of such unauthorised/fake public notice circulated from unknown sources.
Candidates are also advised to rely only on the public Notice(s) /information/ dates announced by NTA through its official websites i.e. http://nta.ac.in and ntaneet.nic.in only.
