RRB NTPC Exam Date 2021: Reasons for Delay
The last date for filling the RRB NTPC application form was April 12, 2019. Thereafter, a huge delay was seen in the announcement of exam dates for recruitment notification number CEN-01/ 2019.

This is the second-highest number in the history of RRB recruitment. Considering a massive number of applications, RRB had to delay the examination process a bit due to the unavailability of exam centres. Further, the COVID-19 pandemic came into the scenario leading to a further delay.
Non-Finalisation of Testing Agency – RRB released a tender lately inviting the prospective agencies to conduct the RRB exams. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the finalisation of the exam conducting agency was put on halt. This is one of the major factors in the delay of the exam dates.
Challenges due to COVID-19 – During the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping in view the safety and social distancing measures, RRB faced certain challenges in conducting the RRB NTPC at a large scale. RRB is conducting the exam in multiple phases dividing the total applicants to ensure adherence of COVID – 19 precautionary guidelines.
