The examination had to be cancelled in March when special operation group (SOG) of Rajasthan police busted gangs involved in facilitating hi-tech cheating for the candidates.

Following this, not only the exam was cancelled but it was decided that future recruitment exams would be conducted offline. The strict measures are also in place since mastermind of online cheating n March; Jagdish Vishnoi is still out of bounds for the police though the ADG Umesh Mishra had declared `25000 reward on him.
