Postpone JEE and NEET exams

With corona virus cases increasing in number everyday, the students that will undertake competitive exams like JEE and NEET will be under a great risk of catching the infection.

The venues of the examinations are very crowded with parents and students waiting at the gates of examination venue and then the long queues in which the student stand to get checked. Many a times there's lot of chaos as there are hundred and thousand of student entering the venue at the same time. In conditions like such where there's no space, following the social distancing guidelines are very difficult to follow. The formation of crowd would be an ideal situation for corona virus spread. The number of students sitting in the classrooms to attempt the exam are also very large. 

There could be students in the crowd, who maybe asymptomatic and could pass on the infection to other students and parents at the venue. This could lead to massive surge in corona virus cases especially since we're moving towards a situation where there would be a peak in cases. Our healthcare system is already under a lot of load. This could lead to a massive upsurge of cases.

Therefore, we request that the competitive examinations like JEE, NEET etc. get postponed for some more time for the safety of the students, parents and the staff present at the venue and prevent any further burden on our healthcare system.
