An announcement on the CAT-IIM official website said, "Prometric technicians have been dispatched to address these isolated problems. To avoid candidate inconvenience and to allow for the necessary repairs to be completed at the impacted labs, Prometric has scheduled a closure of these labs today."
Among the centres that will be closed include 11 in Bangalore, followed by Bhopal (eight), Lucknow (six), Mumbai (six), New Delhi (five), Ghaziabad (four), Varanasi (two), Hyderabad (two), Bhubaneswar, Chandigarh, Nagpur, Kolkata and Coimbatore (one each).
The announcement further said, "Candidates affected by this closure will also be notified by Prometric in the manner described above and provided with new appointments within this year's testing period."
It said Prometric has generated new appointments for individuals who could not take the test on Saturday, Nov 29 and they are in the process of being contacted through SMS and email messages.
However, many students complained that were not informed on time. Some even said that they got messages last on Saturday night.
