The centres have been inaugurated across 622 districts in the country

Pune: The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has opened 3,400 Test Practice Centres (TPC) for entrance examinations like Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), National Eligibility Test (NET) and other competitive exams conducted by National Testing Agency (NTA) for higher education.

The centres have been inaugurated across 622 districts in the country. A total of 325 centres have been inaugurated in 36 districts of Maharashtra, out of which 25 centres are located in Pune district.
The Ministry had announced in July that JEE will be held online by National Testing Agency (NTA) henceforth. However, centres for practice tests online will be set up so that students can conveniently take the examination. 

While interacting with Test Practice Centres (TPCs), the Union Minister of HRD, Prakash Javadekar said, “The government is committed to providing quality education with equity, therefore we are launching TPCs across the country for students who do not have computers and smartphones. So now no student will suffer due to lack of resources.”
In order to provide facility for practice for the changed pattern, NTA has established TPCs across the country. NTA has also launched a practice app through which students can practice on their own on computers or 
smartphones.
