Reasons for RRB NTPC Exam Delay

The last date for filling RRB NTPC application form was April 12, 2019. After that, a considerable delay was seen in the announcement of the RRB NTPC Railway exam date 2022 for RRB NTPC notification number CEN-01/ 2019. The main reasons for the delay in the RRB NTPC event schedule are given below for the candidates’ reference.

  • Number of Applications – When the RRB NTPC notification (CEN-01/ 2019) was released, a massive response was witnessed, attracting around 1 crore 25 lakh applicants for RRB NTPC. It is the second-highest number in the history of RRB recruitment. Considering many 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 halted. It is one of the significant factors in delaying the exam dates. 
  • Challenges due to COVID-19 – During the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping in view the safety and social distancing measures, RRB faced particular challenges in conducting the RRB NTPC on a large scale. RRB has conducted the NTPC CBT 1 in seven phases, dividing the applicants’ total adherence to COVID-19 precautionary guidelines. The RRB NTPC CBT 2 is also expected to happen in multiple stages.
