RRB NTPC and Category-1 Examinations Postponed Due To Protest

After the protest by the candidates, the Railways has postponed the NTPC and Category-1 examinations. There was a ruckus about this exam. Railway has constituted a committee to inquire into the complaints of the examinees. Railway Spokesperson informed on Wednesday, 26 January, 2022 morning that the Railway has postponed the NTPC and Level-1 examination after the protest of the candidates. 

Along with this, the Railways has constituted a committee to inquire into the complaints of the protesting candidates. A railway spokesperson said the committee would inquire into the complaints of those who passed and failed the examinations under various Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs). 

He said that after hearing both the sides, the committee would submit its report to the Ministry of Railways. Earlier on Tuesday, the Railways had issued a general notice, warning job aspirants that those found involved in vandalism and illegal activities while protesting would be debarred from joining the Railways. Let us inform that the protest of the youth was increasing continuously regarding the RRB NTPC CBT-1 Result. 

In Bihar, for a day or two, incidents of train stoppages and jamming of tracks by examinees were coming to the fore at many places. On Monday evening at Patna’s Rajendra Nagar terminal, the police also had to use tear gas and lathi-charge on the protesters. An FIR has also been registered against 500 unidentified protesters in connection with the matter.

The protesters say that in the result of RRB NTPC Recruitment CBT-1, 20 times the total number of posts in zone wise candidates were to be declared qualified. But considering the number of posts in different slots, 20 times the candidates have been declared qualified for each slot separately. This has reduced the actual number of candidates who have qualified in the examination to just 5-6 times instead of 20 times. 

There is resentment among the candidates about this. Because, now only a limited number of candidates will be able to participate in the second stage of RRB NTPC recruitment i.e. CBT-2 exam.  On the other hand, the Railway Recruitment Board has clarified that it was not mentioned anywhere that seven lakh different candidates will be selected for the second stage Computer Based Examination (CBT-2). 

A candidate can be selected for more than one level according to his eligibility, merit and choice. Hence, in the list of seven lakh roll numbers, some names will appear in more than one list. During the final selection, the candidate will get a job on one post.
