“Diverting the same resources for two examinations would not only involve more cost but also manpower. Also time is very short,” the member said.

Therefore, the final decision has been taken and now there are no online entrance exams for M.Phil,PhD and PG programs this year. For M.Phil,PhD and PG programs the entrance exams would take place only in offline mode for this year. This is so far the final decision of the Delhi University’s standing commission for admission.
