To “provide adequate time to candidates belonging to newly added sports discipline and also to honour the requests received from various other applicants who have already registered but have not completed their application due to delay in getting Revenue certificates,” the committee announced that the CENTAC registration deadline for 2024 has been extended.

On the other hand, editing tools will no longer be available to individuals who completed their registration before May 31. The registration will be frozen starting on June 1. Candidates will be notified via their dashboards if differences are discovered in the previously submitted application form during the registration process. There will be ample opportunity for applicants to correct any errors on the admission form.

The grievance option on their dashboard on the CENTAC portal, along with their sports credentials, is how candidates who become qualified under any of the recently added sports disciplines are supposed to submit their requests. Candidates can visit www.centacpuducherry.in, use the Grievances option on the login dashboard, or call the helpline at 0413-2655570 for further information, according to the statement.
