It is been one year of RRB Group D and NTPC notification, however, there is no update on the exam dates yet. Read below for more details.
One of the biggest recruitment drives, RRB Group D and NTPC exams, announced by Indian Railways, has completed one year. Even after a year, there is no update on the exam dates. RRB Group D 2020 notification was announced on February 23, 2019, while the notification for NTPC was released on February 28, 2019. RRB NTPC exam was scheduled to conducted between June-September, 2019. RRB Group D exam, on the other hand, was to be held in September-October, 2019.
The delay in the recruitment process is due to the finalization of the exam agency. The last update by the RRBs regarding the delay in exam was published on October 14, 2019. RRBs had released an official notification regarding meeting with Exam Conducting Agency (ECA) for conducting the Computer Based Tests (CBT) on September 18, 2019. After this, there is no update on the ECA.
Due to the delay in the exam dates, several candidates had filed RTI to the RRBs. In the RTI reply, RRBs had mentioned that the exam schedule is not finalized. The examination date will be decided and will be declared soon on the official website as soon as it is released.
Some reports also suggest that the delay is due to the National Recruitment Agency (NRA) for all Computer-Based Examinations for recruitment to non-gazetted government posts.
Candidates who have applied for the exam are waiting for the exam dates to be released by the RRBs.
