According to the notification issued by Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the Board responsible for conducting NEET Examination, all the newly added centres must either hire or borrow metal detectors from security agencies.

This year 43 new centres have been added for NEET 2018 examination. The notification issued by CBSE states, “As candidates hide communication devices in their clothes, CBSE has sought the use of metal detectors, However, this year many new cities have been added to conduct NEET-UG 2018. These cities will not be having metal detectors with them.” Now the new centres are asked to arrange metal detectors from the local security agencies. Schools are also advised to buy the devices as it would be one-time investment and helpful in future. The centres must arrange one metal detector for every 100 students.
