In a shocking news today, SSC has postponed the Combined Graduate Level Examination, 2013 which was to be held on 14th April 2013 and now it will be held on 28th April 2013 (Sunday). This come as a shock to all the candidates who were preparing day and night for the SSC CGL preparation.
According to the information on the regional websites such as http://sscnr.net.in/, http://www.sscmpr.org/, http://www.ssc-cr.org/, and official website www.ssc.nic.in(Click here for the link), the examination has been postponed on account of closed holiday due to birthday of Dr. BR Ambedkar. This is the second time, such thing has happened as FCI exam was also canceled due to the mismanagement of SSC. It seems SSC new chief is not able to handle things properly. Many people are also claiming that there is something fishy going on in the Staff Selection Commission. Read this tweet(dated March 6, 2013) by SSC Ex Chief N.K.RAGHUPATHY claiming that “There may be pressure on SSC to postpone the CGL exam because someone’s ward is appearing for some other exam on that day!”

Another shock regarding the postponement is that the new exam date is clashing with SBI PO exam. So, students now would have to choose either of these exams. Many students are planning to visit SSC regional offices and request in written to change the date of April 28 to May 5, 2013. You are also requested to visit SSC office or leave them an Email or Fax to strengthen the objection and help thousand of students who want to give both the CGL and SBI PO exams.
Update: SSC has updated the Central region website with the new CGL exam date for the students whose paper was on April 14, 2013. The CGL Exam 2013 now will be held on May 19, 2013. The Junior Engineers (Civil and Electrical) Exam 2013 which was scheduled to be conducted on May 19, 2013 will now be conducted on June 9, 2013.
