The Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) official spokesperson said that the results of RRB NTPC 2016 will be announced some time later and the board will notify candidates this month about the expected date of declaration.
In a fresh update on RRB NTPC results, it has been reported that the results announcement will take some more time. Over 5.6 million candidates who have taken the exam are constantly waiting for their result, this new update can shatter their hopes of getting the result any time soon.
Indian Railways spokesperson Anil Kumar Saxena has said on Tuesday that the authority will soon provide the update on the results announcement. Hindustan Times quoted Mr. Anil saying, “the next information regarding the result process will be given sometime this month.”
In a first, the board has already stated that it will also release “objection tracker” with answer keys and question paper for the NTPC exam.
The biggest online exam was conducted in a long schedule between March to May for filling total 18,252 posts under Non-Technical Popular Categories (NTPC). These posts include Commercial Apprentice, Traffic Apprentice, Enquiry-cum-reservation clerk, goods guard, senior clerk-cum-typist, junior accounts assistant-cum-typist, assistant station master, traffic assistant and senior time keeper post. As a major shock, around 9.3 million candidates registered for the exam, while around 5.6 million appeared for the test in more than 1,120 online test centres across the country.
RRB NTPC results which were initially scheduled for announcement on June 1, however the same was reported to be delayed to July 10, as several media houses reported. The same reports were quashed by Mr. Anil when he said that such large number of candidates have taken the exam, hence the Board is still in the process of preparing the results and it will take time to prepare the results. As per the previous reports, it was speculated that the RRB NTPC results will be announced around mid-August. In a latest update on RRB NTPC result provided by RRB Allahabad on August 2, the results are still under confidential process. The official notice reads, “For NTPC Posts (Graduate), examination conducted in March-April 2016, against CEN-03/2015, no information on this issue can be shared in public at present. Any progress in the declaration of the result which can be shared with candidates will be published on rrbald.gov.in promptly.”
Once the results are announced, RRBs will call the candidates equal to the number of vacancies for document verification. Additional 50 percent candidates will be kept under standby category in case the initially shortlisted candidates fail to make it to the main list. The selection process will be completely on the basis of merit.
