  2. It"s o.k.But tell some technical things i.e one has take over a ruhan what nning news paper of 3 yrs old daily paper and all the formality for new Regd. has been made but registration (Revise) certificate has not received by stipulated date of online registration than what will be fate of new publisher ! pl.iform DD MIttal
  3. Points are ok but it is confusing that whether publications disqualified by the DAVP over last six years should apply after six years of disqualified time or should apply within six years of the time it is disqualified? Please make this point clear as at one place it is said that the period should not exceed six year and at the other it says contrary position. It would help if clarified.

    Also there appears to be no periodicity bar. what about a quarterly journal? If these information are send to my email it would greatly help. Thanks.
