According to sources in the UGC, taking into consideration the concerns of CBSE, the higher education regulator will issue an advisory to all universities next week, reported The Indian Express.

In its letter to the UGC (June 28), the Board wrote, “It has come to the notice that some universities in India, especially in Maharashtra, have started registration in undergraduate courses for the session (2022-’23) and their last date is in the first week of July. It is, therefore, requested that all the universities may please be directed to fix the last date of their undergraduate admission process keeping in mind the date of result declaration of Class XII by CBSE.”

UG admission schedule of different institutions are kept in mind and CBSE (is) in touch with the concerned authorities to protect the interest of its students," Bhardwaj had told The Indian Express.
