Over 16.58 lakh students were awaiting result link today for hours and hours, however, it was not available to most of them. The Maharashtra State Board Of Secondary And Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) declared the result at 1 pm, however, till 9 pm, most students could not check their results as the official websites kept crashing. The board had a series of websites where result was to be declared, however, none of them had worked.
The Maharashtra School and Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad had issued a public apology to students and said that she would look into the matter and ensure that strict action is taken against those responsible.
We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the SSC result link being inaccessible due to a technical issue. I have ordered a full inquiry into the incident. Strict action will be taken against all those responsible to ensure that such incidents don’t recur.#sscresults2021 pic.twitter.com/QZPJ9rKP7x— Varsha Gaikwad (@VarshaEGaikwad) July 16, 2021
