It would provide them with much-needed clarity and certainty about their future prospects, and alleviate the financial burden and mental stress caused by the prolonged delay.
Furthermore, the investigation into the alleged examination malpractice can also proceed in parallel with the constitution of the commission. The investigation into the alleged examination malpractice should also progress at a brisk pace.
