Official website of CBSE stopped working
No sooner the results were declared, due to the heavy traffic caused by simultaneous visitation by lakhs of candidates, cbseresults.nic.in, the official website to check results, got down. Even CBSE’s public portal www.cbse.nic.in stopped responding. Obviously, nearly 15 lakh candidates were anxiously waiting for their results. It remained down for about half an hour. However somewhere around 3 pm the website again started working smoothly.
This didn’t happen for the first time in the history of CBSE when the results were declared. This is the story of every year. Don’t know when they are very well aware that at the single moments lakhs of students will visit the website to check the result; they do not employ services of a good server to tackle such huge traffic.
