AIIMS PG 2019 in Orissa Cancelled Due to Cyclone Fani

The AIIMS PG 2019 examination, which was supposed to be conducted on May 5 has been cancelled for Bhubaneswar due to cyclone Fani. Fani has affected connectivity in that area and has caused a lot of damage.

The AIIMS PG 2019 examination, which was to be held on May 5 has been cancelled for the candidates who have centres in Bhubaneswar. The Ministry of Health said in a tweet that the AIMS centes for PG exams in Bhubaneswar have been cancelled due to the damage caused by the cyclone Fani.

Fani has impacted rail, road, and air connectivity. So, AIIMS New Delhi has decided to cancel the exam centre in Bhubaneswar. The exam will take place later once things settle down. Three people have died in the cyclone as it went from being ‘extremely severe’ to ‘very severe’ and it is predicted that it will further go down to a ‘severe storm’ in the next few hours.
