lahari narisetty 22nd Jan, 2020
Hey i'm also having the same problem.
I'm guessing that NBE didn't go through the documents submitted through the portal.
I have tried calling them but it's just waste of time.
My senior advised to keep checking the portal for any further info/updates. Even though it's waste of time try calling them also.

Yesterday my result got with held in FMGE DEC 2019.Though I sent all my deficient documents to them via their NBE portal. May be they received it late. So now how many working days does it generally take to declare the with held results?

pramod thapa 23rd Jan, 2020

For FMGE JUNE 2019, withheld results were declared on three or more subsequent dates , first one was released 6 days post  fmge result declarartion. SO  i guess NBE is likely to declare the withheld results for dec fmge 2019 in a week time or so.
