Due to the exams, students need to travel to the test venues and cities which will worsen the situation. CBSE has also cancelled the CBSE Class 10th board exams and postponed the CBSE Class 12th exams. UPSC also postponed the personality tests of UPSC IAS 2020, UPSC IES/ISS 2020. UPSC EPFO 2021 exam also got postponed because of the pandemic situation. With all these statistics, we can assume that the SSC CGL 2021 may get postponed.
Chances of SSC CGL 2021 getting postponed
Predicting whether the SSC CGL 2021 exam will be postponed or not is tough right now. But the chances of SSC postponing SSC CGL 2021 exam is high. If the COVID-19 cases become normal, the chances of the SSC CGL 2021 exam getting postponed will decrease.
So as of now students have to wait for the official announcement by SSC for any update.
Other reasons which may postpone SSC CGL exam
The lockdown and curfew in various parts of the country may be one of the reasons for SSC CGL 2021 postponement as no one is allowed to get out of their houses until it's something essential.
The SSC CGL exam centers are not available in every district of the country which may lead to trouble for students while reaching the exam centre.
With the most active cases, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, and Gujarat are the worst-affected states, followed by Karnataka, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, and Delhi. As a result, authorities may decide to postpone SSC CGL 2021 to a later date.

Firstly, It's technically wrong that you are having power and you are not mentioning that in your form about that. Secondly, you will surely be issued the admit card as they will check it later even if they have to
But if you have not that huge power I don't think it should be much problem. Inform them about that in advance. Surely it will help you .
Hope that helps.
