RRB NTPC and Group D recruitment same photo, accepted in one, rejected in the other


The candidates are again furious after thousands of forms are rejected in the Group D examination of Railways. Candidates claim that a photo and signature forms were filled in NTPC (Non-Technical Popular Category) and Group D. The form was accepted at NTPC, while the same photo and signature forms were canceled in Group D. RRB (Railway Recruitment Board) Allahabad opened its site on 21 September to check the filled form for NTPC exam. Candidates have questioned the cancellation of Group D form after getting the NTPC form right on the site. The same photo was put in both railway exams.

Rakesh Kumar Yadav, who applied for both railway exams, said that NTPC’s applications have also been rejected. RRB has stated several reasons for NTPC’s form being canceled. Candidates are satisfied with the stated reasons of RRB. The reason for the application being rejected in Group D is due to mere photo and signature, which is incomprehensible.

Thousands of forms were
done, the candidates protested last year when the Group D examination was informed that more than four and a half lakh forms were canceled from all over the country. Demonstrations were held in New Delhi and the forms were checked again. Over 40 thousand forms were corrected in the investigation. According to officials, the forms were canceled due to computer fault.
