However, due to the COVID-19 issue, both government and non-government officials are forced to remain away. As a result, the students are not able to get the newly issued certificates. Thus, several aspirants seeking admissions under the OBC category or any other category could not get an updated certificate issued this year. Moreover, many candidates do not have access to the internet to apply online. Similar issues are being faced by the EWS category students as well.
