      Plz check your friends ‘form status’. If they also have same problem then it may be TECHNICAL ISSUE .Because sometimes due to heavy server loads technical problems can occur.
      But if your friends are receiving sms then you have to worry about it. Plz check steps/details you have followed.
      Plz stay updated with your friends and jee official site.
