As reported by the indianexpress.com earlier, the Railway Recruitment Board is looking for a new agency to conduct its recruitment exams and is, therefore, unlikely to release the examination date and admit cards for the NTPC (Non-Technical Popular Categories) in the coming weeks. As per a senior railway official, the board has set up a committee that will invite applications from public and private stakeholders to operate as its Examination Conducting Agency (ECA).
“A committee will decide the basic eligibility criteria and other terms and conditions to float a tender. After receiving applications, we will shortlist the agency. This may take over a month,” informed a senior Railways official.
Since every job notification witnesses a mammoth increase in applications, necessary precautions are being taken before finalising the agency responsible to conduct the exam on their behalf, he told indianexpress.com.
To be finally selected, the candidates will have to clear a typing test (TST) and document verification after CBT 1 and 2.
