As we are aware that entire country was under lock down since 25 March 2020 and movement was severely restricted. Due to restriction on movement, physical verification of placement was not possible during lock down period. Considering that, MoRD has been decided that the skype/video call based physical verification of placements shall be valid from 25th March 2020 till 30th November 2020.
