Kolkata Metro to run 66 special trains on 13 September for NEET

 The Kolkata Metro will run around 66 special trains on 13 September. National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) is scheduled to be held on 13 September.

Earlier this week chief minister of West bengal Mamata Banerjee said that out of the 4,652 students who were supposed to appear for the JEE exam in West Bengal on September 1, only 1,167--around 25%-- could sit for the exam. Around 75% of the candidates could not appear primarily because of the lack of public transport during the Covid-19 pandemic.

On 13 September, Kolkata Metro authorities will operate 66 special trains for candidates between 11 and 7 pm. Those who don’t have smart cards will be issued paper tickets.

“The metro is expected to run from September 14. Passengers may have to book e-passes through an app a few hours before they want to take a ride as a restricted number of passengers would be allowed to board each train. The QR codes of the e-passes would be scanned before the passenger is allowed to enter the station,” said a metro official.
