Why the date was extended?

One of the official notification clarified that the extension had to be declared on the pretext of urgent issues regarding OBC quota in Delhi (IP University). A case of M. Rithika Vs MCI and others is being heard before High court of Madras pertaining to the aforementioned issue. In consideration of the circumstances, the competent authority decided to keep the registrations and choice filling open until further notice.
