Council of Scientific & Industrial Research has released CSIR NET Admit Card 2019 today at csirhrdg.res.in. CSIR is conducting the Joint CSIR UGC NET 2019 on June 16, 2019. Candidates who had applied for the exam in Feb-March can now download hall tickets at candidate login.

Candidates had been looking at csirhrdg.res.in regarding issuance of admit card. Although no notice was put up about it, when some candidates realized that they were able to download it from login (http://126.96.36.199/JUNE_19_STATUS/StudentLogin.aspx), they shared the news with peers on social media. That is how other CSIR NET applicants came to know about it.
The admit card can be downloaded from any device, computer, laptop, or mobile phone. However in the few hours following its release, the website is often crashing. Nevertheless the login page is working fine.
After downloading the PDF version, candidates have to print it on a plain white A4 size sheet. Preferably color printout should be taken as it is more clear. It is recommended to take multiple printouts, few as backups in case one is lost.
