National eligibility and entrance Test (NEET) began in 1040 examination centres across 52 cities on Sunday with stringent security measures put by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to deter any wrongdoing.

Taking note of previous year’s All India Pre Medical Test that was nullified by Supreme Court due to incidents of cheating, the CBSE officials left no stone unturned to ensure a fool proof examination.

Aspirants were allowed to bring only admit card, a passport size photo and a postcard size photo and nothing else, not even pen/pencil or paper.

Aspirants weren’t be allowed to enter examination centre wearing caps, rings, bracelet or any religious symbols.

Candidates had to take off wallets, shoes and wrist watches.
