According to an earlier notification, today was supposed to be the last date to apply for the examination, which will be conducted across the country next year but the dates have now been extended to December 20, so the candidates get an extra two days for applying to SSC CHSL 2017. In the last two days, according to reports, the official website of SSC was unable to proceed with the application process, making it tough for job seekers to apply.
