Ahead of the Rajasthan Eligibility Entrance Test (REET) 2021 scheduled to be conducted on September 26, 2021, the state government has implemented several measures to ensure that the exam is conducted in a seamless manner. The most recent development came in a form of a tweet from the official Twitter account of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. He said that as many as 16.15 lakh candidates are expected to appear for the eligibility exam. He further added that the state government has allowed the students to travel free through roadways. He has asked political parties and social organizations to contribute to conducting the exam smoothly.
Apart from this, reportedly the government has also made provisions for special transport, medical facilities, 24*7 control rooms and many more. Previously, universities within Rajasthan had planned to conduct the exams from September 25 to 27, 2021. However, the Higher Education Department issued an order to postpone these exams due to the upcoming REET 2021 exam. This eligibility test is the biggest exam conducted in the state and hence, it should not clash with other tests, making things simpler for many students.
