The reason why this gives a feeling of Deja vu is that the candidates were exactly in the same situation on February 21, 2017. Here is a quick reminder of what happened to the SSC-CGL examinations last year-

On February 21, 2017, the SSC- Tier 2 paper got leaked and thus the examination was canceled. The paper leak had led to discourses among the candidates and examination board. The situation was then handled by giving the case forward to the Centra Buruew of Investigation (CBI) and the examination had to be conducted on March 09, 2017. However, the examination board has leveled up the security of the question papers.
