Update 1: Read the comments from ETS below. Looks like there was error in communication from ETS. Stay tuned for more details. Also check the screen shots posted in comments.
Reasons for confusion
See the following email screenshots from ETS.
2 emails from ETS says GRE will not be offered and last screenshot to Ankit says GRE will be offered in July 2011. Looks, like there was communication error. Keep checking for dates n July at GRE testing centers near your location.
If there is any additional update from ETS, you will receive an email.
GRE July Dates
Couple of students have forwarded the same message from ETS. Last date to take GRE exam in current format is June 30, 2011. GRE tests will not be offered during the month of July 2011. Following email reply from ETS confirms that.
I thought its was just a rumor that GRE exam dates will not be available in month of July 2011, but after reading the email from ETS confirms that GRE dates will not be available. If you were planing to take GRE in July, 2011, you have to make change to your GRE study plan. Take GRE before July or register for New GRE Exam from August 1, 2011.
