Question Eligibility Period Extension Help

Hello friends pls help, my eligibility period for Step 1 was from Dec-Jan-Feb 2013. And I was scheduled to appear for the exam on 31 Jan. But the prometric center in my city Mumbai (as also many centers all over India) was shut and they cancelled my appointment and no fee was charged as it was their technical problem. I waited till 20 Feb, but they didn't open up. Hence, I have decided to extend my eligibility period till May 2013. But I am unable to find the 'one time eligibility period extension (EPEx) link' to do so online on my IWA page on ECFMG website. Am I doing anything wrong here. Also I am a graduate and all my credentials are verified by ECFMG. Pls guide me as to how I can extend my eligibility period as the deadline to complete the entire process is 24 March. Thanks
