Citing the impact of recent violence in January's first week, the administration has extended the registration date for January 5 to January 15. Releasing the advisory, JNU had said, "The above call for 'non-cooperation' not only goes against the efforts of the administration for restoration of normalcy in the campus and resumption of academic activities but also reflects the intention of JNUTA to disrupt normal functioning of the university."

Also, the administration had asked the JNUTA to resume their classes and other academic activities in the interests of the student community. It had said, "The JNUTA GBM resolution on the non- cooperation action plan implies that we refuse to comply with the two circulars issued on January 10, 2020 which asked teachers to be present in their offices for registration, to start classes and other relevant academic activities from January 13, 2020 and to upload time-tables for the same."

Meanwhile, JNUTA had asked the Human Resource Development Ministry on how can they resume teaching when students have not retruned to campus due to the the violence of January 5. Delhi police, in the meantime, questioned JNUSU president Aishe Ghosh and three others in connection with 5 January JNU violence case.
