So it seems that RRB NTPC exam date 2019 for CBT 1 exam is tentatively scheduled around December first week.
Ever since the application submission process ended on 12th April for the RRB NTPC 2019 recruitment examination, candidates have been waiting for RRB to provide any kind of information about the exam dates or the admit card issuance date. However, seems like candidates have become an afterthought for the RRB since the board has not disclosed any update regarding RRB NTPC exam date.
In it’s official notification, RRB had mentioned that the CBT 1 may take place tentatively between June-September 2019. But September is over. And RRB has still left the candidates blank with no update whatsoever regarding the examination.
Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) had earlier this year released an advertisement notifying the recruitment on a total of 35,208 vacancies for the posts of Traffic assistant, Goods Guard, Senior clerk cum typist, Junior account assistant cum typist, Senior time keeper, Senior commercial cum ticket clerk, Station Master and Commercial Apprentice.
The applications for the said RRB NTPC recruitment 2019 were invited online from 1st March, 2019 and the final submissions date was 12th April 2019. And that’s it. Since then, candidates have been left in a state of disarray as the board failed to address the examination schedule and further proceedings.
It’s not even the first time RRB had conducted an examination of scale this big.
This time though, the number of applications have hit all time for the NTPC recruitment exam as the number stands at a record 1.26 crore. The competition is at all time high too with vacancies being just 35 thousand, which means that nearly 350 candidates will be vying for 1 post.
With that being said, there is some solid news about the proceedings of RRB about this NTPC examination. As per a report, a Senior RRB official has said that the Board is in the finalization phase. The board is about to issue an open tender for the exam conducting agencies which could take around 1-2 months. Now, this is a recent news, not old. Going by that report (you can read it here), the examination is more likely to be held by November-end or in December, not before. But all of that comes from Press, not from RRB. It would be wise to wait for RRB to notify anything about it.
Candidates may note that their admit cards will be issued through their RRB regional websites.
