RRB Group D, NTPC Exams Postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions
Due to COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the various States of India, the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) decided to put the RRB NTPC 2019 examinations process on hold on Monday. In this context, the RRB issued a notification. The selection process started in December of last year. Exams for RRB NTPC 2019 have been postponed due to COVID-19.
RRBs have issued three Centralized Employment Notifications (CENs) for various categories: No. 01/2019, No. 03/2019, and No. RRC 01/2019.
After the constraints imposed on COVID 19 were eased, the recruitment procedure began in December 2020 and is being held in phases.
Because of numerous restrictions imposed by the afflicted states due to the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic, further scheduling of CBT has been suspended.
Candidates are at this moment notified that future examination scheduling would be announced as soon as the restrictions imposed by various states are lifted. The Railway Recruitment Board has received around 1crore 25 lakhs applications for the Group D test. Over 1 lakh positions are up for grabs in this recruitment drive. The investigation is being carried out in stages.
