Candidates complaints were mainly about the non-capturing of most institutions in the country which institutions attended by applicants were not included; we have been informed that it has been resolved.

However, applicants for the NCS recruitment 2019, have been informed by the NCS president that most of the people complaining about lack of network or poor network are the ones at fault and not the site. The network problem is mostly from the people applying and not from the customs application portal.
