Another Twitter user said, “There is lockdown in Kerala till 16th and in many South States. Please look into our issue.”

A user tweets, “We used to thank AIIMS as high regards towards students!! But after this issue.. they're truly adamant and irresponsible towards the budding doctors! Many people have got far from the exam centres! #PostponeINICETSSaveDoctors.”
