This tweet by NDTV forwarding the same circular was deleted later.
The circular is fake because NTA themselves clarified this fake news and warned students to not fall prey to such rumors. They released a separate circular addressing this news on July 7 2021.
Along with this several other fact checking websites and recognized news outlets also denied any such claim and asked everyone to refrain from forwarding such news.
Attached below is an image of original and fake circular put together by FACTO – fact checking agency to help people understand the difference. IT is very clear that the person who made this fake circular did a very shabby job.
NTA posted the below warning on their official website – nta.ac.in
Many other fact checking sites and individuals have notified people that the news is fake and not to believe it.
