Railway suspends NTPC and Level 1 exams:
Railways formed a committee to investigate the complaints of the candidates. Due to the protest by the candidates, the Railways have also postponed the NTPC and Category-1 exams.
The Railways has postponed the NTPC and Category-1 examinations due to the protests of candidates. This exam caused a ruckus. The railroad has constituted a committee to investigate the complaints of the examinees. The Railway Spokesperson informed the candidates on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 that the NTPC and Level-1 examinations have been postponed. The Railways has also formed a committee to investigate the complaints of protesting candidates.
The protests of the youth regarding the RRB NTPC CBT-1 Result have been increasing continuously. Train stoppages and jamming of tracks by examinees were on the rise for a few days in Bihar. The police had to use tear gas and lathi charges on the protesters at Patna’s Rajendra Nagar terminal on Monday evening. In connection with the matter, 500 unidentified protesters have also been charged.
The protesters claim that 20 times the total number of posts were to be filled zone-by-zone in the RRB NTPC Recruitment CBT-1 result. Nevertheless, 20 times the candidates have been declared qualified for each post, regardless of the number of posts in each slot. It has reduced the number of candidates who have qualified in the examination to just 5-6 times instead of 20 times. Candidates are angry about this. Only a limited number of candidates will be able to participate in the second stage of RRB NTPC recruitment, namely, the CBT-2 examination.
Meanwhile, the Railway Recruitment Board clarified that no mention was made anywhere that seven lakh different candidates will be selected for the second stage Computer Based Examination (CBT-2). The candidate can be selected for more than one level depending on his eligibility, merit and choice. As a result, some names will appear in more than one list in the list of seven lakh roll numbers. The candidate will be hired on one post during the final selection process.
