Dear Aspirant,

COVID19 is a global problem and if some schedules are affected by it, it will be affected for all and you will not find any problem with any formal exam or procedure as government itself understands that right now many things are going to be delayed and they will make up for it after the the situation is in control. Do not worry about any official meetup or exam that is scheduled in coming months as right now the top priority is the safety of the citizens.

Thank you.
