Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 15th Jan, 2020
Riyaz, the last daybfor filling NIFT applications was closed on December 31st, 2019 and the admit cards were released on January 10th, 2020. Now unfortunately, it is too late for trying for 2020. Once the admit cards have been released, it is impossible to fill in an application form for the entrance examination.
