However, the bench dismissed the plea, saying that it is the new normal and further postponement will lead to a problem for this session.

But now Dr. Subramanian Swamy, BJP Leader, and Rajya Sabha MP have stepped into the matter. He requested the Education Minister to postpone the competitive exams. Swamy further tweeted that the “Education Minister will be holding an emergency meeting, Let us see”. Further, he has also sent an urgent letter to the Prime Minister. If the government allows then the exam can be postponed further. That is because the Honorable Court has left the decision of exam date to the government to decide.
The education ministry has, however, not taken any decision at the moment. In addition, the government is not considering further postponement to keep the 2020-21 academic session moving. Without these exams that would not be possible.
In a tweet, Swami stated that “Since the number of new COVID-19 cases has soared to 70,000 per day, it is in the balance of public interest that Education Ministry approaches the CJI Court at his home and seek an adjournment to November after Deepavali”.
NEET Exam is scheduled to be held on 13th September 2020. Whereas the JEE Mains will be conducted from 01st to 06th September 2020.
A lot of YouTubers and social media influencers have also urged the government to postpone the competitive exams. As the safety of the students is more important. The no. of cases of COVID patients in India has been increasing and the situation isn’t stable yet. The petition filed by some of the students has been rejected by justice stating that “life has to go on”. Considering the request of Mr. Swamy the Education Ministry is expected to issue a public statement, whether there is a possibility of further postponement of the exam or not.
