RRB Group D recruitment 2019: The latest recruitment notification by the Indian Railways has been announced and this year, it will be managed by the RRC and not the RRB. This has left many confused. After all, what is the difference between the two? If you have also wondered that, then here are your answers.
The RRB refers to Railways Recruitment Boards and RRCs are the Railways Recruitment Cells. While there are 21 RRBs, there are only 16 RRCs. RRBs are named after cities and RRCs are divided into zones encompassing multiple cities. Since the Indian Railways is the biggest recruiters in the country, both manage the task of hiring candidates at group C and group D level into the Indian Railways.
Major vacancies such as loco pilot, technical, JE are handled by RRB and group D and some group C level recruitments are managed by RRCs. The recruitment drive under the RRCs is generally at lower pay grade as compared to those of RRBs.
Moreover, the Railway Recruitment Board has also released a notification informing candidates who come under EWS category on how to avail the reservation.
Currently, the ALP and technician recruitment exam result will be released by the RRB. The latest group D recruitment to hire over 1 lakh candidates are being managed by the RRC.
