Meanwhile, officials believe that technological issues with the newly built website have hampered the IT assessment process because they are unable to access data from the back end smoothly. Infosys, the website’s vendor, is now working to resolve the issues. Officials believe that if the issue is not resolved in a timely manner, they will be forced to enable manual submission of forms.
