Besides, OTP is being delayed and once the six-digit OTP is entered in the given space on the website, the CoWIN portal shows server issues. It states, 'CoWIN server is facing issues. Please try later'.
Meanwhile, hashtag #CoWINdown has started trending on Twitter. People waiting to register for the COVID-19 vaccine have taken to social media Twitter to complain about the issue they are facing in the registration process.
