So what could be the reason?

There can be n number of reasons for this slide in cutoffs. It could be the rising difficulty of paper year after year or a decreasing number of candidates who appear for the exam along with their performance etc. Whatever it may be, the fact is that KVPY may become very easy to clear if this trend continues.
