Not only this, more than 300 roads remain disconnected with the other parts of the country for more than a month in Himachal, mentioned Dr. Sharma.

He further added that the aspiring students from North East also could not apply for their dream courses due to disturbance in the region. The curfew & non availability of internet was there for a long time in Manipur. Keeping all these facts in mind the last date for admission should be extended for 2 months at least, they added. For the session 2022-23 as per AICTE's academic calendar the last date of admission was 30th Oct & as per UGC notification number F. No. 1-12/2022 (DB), the last date was 31st October.
