When released, candidates can download the admit card from the websites — dge.tn.gov.in, dge1.tn.nic.in, dge1.tn.nic.in.
Speaking to reporters in Nambiyur village near Gobichettipalayam where he distributed food and vegetables to families hit by the COVID-19 lockdown, the Minister said social distance would be maintained in the examination halls and the candidates should wear masks.
