The Jawaharlal Nehru University administration has again extended the registration date for the winter semester 2020 till January 17, 2020 (Thursday). The students who have not registered till now for the winter semester can do so, by visiting the official JNU website (mentioned below) without payment of late fees. This is the second week the registration date for winter season has been extended. Initially, the last date of registration was on January 5, 2020.

The University official said:
“After that deadline, the VC may consider written requests for registration and grant the permission for late registration, if deemed fit, with the imposition of an appropriate amount of fine at his discretion.”
The university administration had said that the reason behind this decision was that the information and communication service (CIS) systems were severely damaged by the students as part of their months-long agitation against a hostel fee hike.
Last week, the administration officials had issued a notice stating that students would not require utility charges and pay service for the winter semester during registrations.
