RRB NTPC 2019 latest update on date: Reason for delay explained
New Delhi, Sep 21: There has been no official announcement regarding the RRB NTPC 2019 Admit Card. The same once released will be available on the official website.
RRB NTPC is still on and the process may only begin in October, officials have said. The RRB received a total of 1,26,30,885 applications to fill up 35,208 vacancies. A large number of applications is what led to the delay in the release of the admit card and exam dates.
Some reports say that the admit card and subsequently the exam dates could be announced this month. However it would take another month to announce the schedule, a board official confirmed.
The RRB JE 2nd stage exam began on August 28 and ended on September 3, 2019. The RRB NTPC process would commence only after the ongoing recruitment process and examinations are completed. The process is most likely to commence only in October 2019.
The RRC CEN 01/2019 of Group D Recruitment 2019 is expected to take place before the RRB NTPC. This means that the NTPC recruitment process could take place only n November or December.
One of the main reasons behind the delay is because of the sheer number of applications. There are a high number of vacancies is largely attributed for so many applications being filed. Hence to process these applications it is taking time as a result of which the entire process has been delayed.
The RRB had earlier said that the dates for the exam and RRB NTPC exam 2019 would be announced after the Paramedical Exam is completed. The results of the paramedical exam is expected to be released in the second week of September. This means one could expect an update on the NTPC shortly after that.
Before releasing the exam dates, the RRB will activate the NTPC application status. Once this link is activated candidates will be able to check if their applications are rejected or accepted. If the applications are accepted, then candidates will be allowed to appear in the examination.
The exam would have two stages, a CBT followed by a skill test. This would be followed by document verification and a medical examination. The admit card once released will be available on the regional websites of the RRB.
