CEE SITE WENT DOWN FOR TWO DAYS
Mathrubhumi Education Online
Kochi,June 23,2013: Whoever thinks everything is fine with the Commissioner of Entrance Examination's office and those managing its site are mistaken. The official website of the CEE went down for more than 36 hours since Thursday giving anxious moments to students.
On enquiries it was revealed that the official Kerala Government body managing the www.cee-kerala.org site did not support the site functioning causing heartburns to the CEE and also the users. This was in stark contrast to the functioning of the other site of the CEE www.cee.kerala.gov.in where the options are registered. It is managed by the National Informatics Centre.
The official site went out to the dark at the very crucial time when the students and parents were visiting it. On Friday from morning itself the site went off. Since the day was scheduled to begin option registration everybody thought it was due to heavy traffic. But the snag continued even the next day. When enquired a highly placed official of CEE told Mathrubhumi Education Online that it was due to the problem with the web supporters, C-DIT.
After hours of darkness the site became oprational only after 7 pm Saturday. People were calling to Mathrubhumi office and asked for Education section to ask what happened. They had to know when the category list will be published, when will the final ranklist of architecture be published etc...
One department or the other, government machinery works as the proverb says, and the plight of students have no ears to hear, except newspaper offices.
