Reasons for RRB NTPC Exam Delay
The last date for filling 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. 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. 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 has conducted the NTPC CBT 1 in seven phases dividing the total applicants to ensure adherence to COVID-19 precautionary guidelines. The RRB NTPC CBT 2 is also expected to happen in multiple phases.
