The online application process was completed in the month of March 2019. It has been reported around 1.26 crore applications has been received by RRB for the NTPC Posts.
The suspension for the recruitment test schedule by RRB is because of the ongoing process of selecting a new exam conducting agency. As per the senior Railway official they will float the tender soon and has stated that, “RRB NTPC exam dated will not be announced next month because we have not floated the tender to hire the agency to conduct the exam.
We will shortlist the agency once the application is received. We need the company to manage the examinations as we have received more than one crore applications. Such big number can only be handled by the agency to conduct the exam.”
