Conjoined twins Veena and Vani will appear for the SSC exam separately after the Telangana education department has decided to issue separate hall tickets on the twins' request.
Initially, the education department was not sure if to consider the girls as one or two individuals when it came to issuing the hall tickets for the examination. However, the officials decided to issue the hall tickets separately.
District Education Officer (DEO) B Venkata Narasamma said that they have approached the government whether to permit them to write the exam separately. However, the government asked the education department to go with the twins' wishes. Special teachers were also deputed at the state home to prepare Veena and Vani for the exam.
Veena and Vani, the conjoined twins who are children of M Murali and Nagalakshmi from Mahabubabad were shifted to state home from the Niloufer Hospital when they were 12 years old and are under the care of the social welfare department.
