The aspirants have alleged that the exams conducted by the board are not fair and transparent, and that there are many irregularities in the selection process.

They have also raised concerns about the technical glitches that have marred the online exam conducted by the company in the past.
The postponement of the exams is likely to cause inconvenience to the aspirants who had been preparing for the exams for a long time. It is also likely to cause delays in the recruitment process, which may have a cascading effect on the overall functioning of the government departments.
