The new AEEE 2020 exam dates might not be coming our way until April 15, 2020. Why? Let us see the chronology of events so far to understand this:
18 Mar 2020: MHRD asks bodies to take precautionary measures against COVID-19 in letter no. Secy (HE)/ MHRD)/ 2020, read the letter. However, this letter was addressed to institutes under MHRD. But given the condition, many took this as an advisory and implement the same.
