RRB NTPC Admit Card, Exam Date 2020: Even as candidates await the dates of Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) NTPC examinations, a recent reply from the board over an RTI mentioned that the exam schedule has not been fixed yet. On Monday, in reply to an RTI filed by candidates, the board stated that the dates will be finalised soon and announced on the website.

Earlier, the recruitment examination was scheduled to be held in September, but the board failed repeatedly to conduct it. According to officials, the board is in the process to invite an Examination Conducting Agency (ECA), which will conduct the examination. The ECA should be in a position to host over a lakh candidates in a single shift, as per the board since over 1.26 crore applications have been received by Railways for RRB NTPC exam.
