The stay was lifted on Tuesday.

Chief Minister, Vasundhra Raje congratulated board officials after the high court order. The students however, faced problem in accessing their results as the site got too much traffic and witnessed downtime. The site was showing invalid roll number and date of birth due to which students were not able to access their results and this problem did not get rectified until Wednesday morning.
