Each of these centres is well-equipped to take care of all parts of the form submission process, including one time passwords for verification and online fee for the exam, he said.

The provision is aimed at enhancing relevant capabilities of these institutions to help their students, the spokesman said, adding that it would also help in the ongoing NEET registration process in the centres set up at these institutions.
