This is the second time, the deadline for submission of thesis papers has been extended. Last time, the date was extended in the year 2020, when the pandemic had just hit. 
 
UGC Chairman M. Jagadesh Kumar said, “ in view of lost time during COVID period, UGC approved that HEIs may give an extension of up to six months beyond 30 June 2022 for M.Phil./PhD. thesis submission on case-to-case basis after a review of student’s work.”
 
But this extension won’t be universal for all researchers. The extension will be given after reviewing and considering the research work done on a case to case basis.
