Hi Shubho,

I hope this response hasn't come too late for you. You've got a good question.

Here are 3 sources that will answer your query about breaks provided during the PMP exam from home:

1) Gabriella Dellino, PMP, provided a thorough answer about breaks during the online test here: PMP Exam Break (10 min) She also has a short video found on the PMI website with 3 recommendations. Her third recommendation talks about the breaks. It's very good!
Online Proctoring Exam Tips

2) PMI provides good information here: Online Proctored Testing for PMI Certifications

3) Pearson VUE also describes the breaks here: Online testing for PMI

Shubho, I wish you the best in your endeavors!
