The DU website, which crashed yesterday owing to the rush for forms, was working smoothly today as 42,000 registrations were done till evening. 13,200 forms along with fees were received online taking the total to around 20,000 in two days.
The smooth working of the website also helped reduce the rush at the centres compared to yesterday as many aspirants were forced to buy forms over the counter adding to the confusion and chaos on the first day.
