Aiming for filling up about 1.4 lakh vacancies in which more than 2.44 Crore candidates will give exam in different cities across the country. The preparations for the conduct of exams are in full swing amid COVID-19.
The first phase of the exam will commence from December 15 till December 18, 2020 for Isolated and Ministerial categories. This will be followed by NTPC categories from December 28 to tentatively till March 2021. The third recruitment for Level-1 from tentatively April 2020 onwards till June end, 2021.
For Isolated and Ministerial categories, candidates will be informed individually through email and SMS.

Link for downloading of e-call letter will be made live 4 days prior to exam date on official websites of all RRBs. Communication regarding next phases of recruitment will be released in due course.
RRBs have made extensive preparations for conducting examinations of this large scale in COVID-19 pandemic times. Following SOPs as laid down by the government ensuring social distancing, compulsory use of masks and sanitizers. Curtailing shifts for conducting Exams to only two shifts per day.
Efforts are being made by RRBs to ensure that as far as possible the candidates are accommodated in their own State. So that they can reach their exam centers by undertaking the overnight journey. Female and PWD candidates are given centers within their home states. However, considering the skewed distribution of candidates area-wise, there will be unavoidable inter state movements. Railways will be running special exam trains to cater to the travel requirements of the candidates wherever required and feasible.
According to the Indian Railways, candidates will be checked for the temperature at entry using thermo guns.
“Those who are having temperature more than prescribed limits will not be allowed inside the exam venue. Message in this regard will also be sent to their registered email and mobile number regarding the rescheduling of such candidates.
The exact date of changed exam of such candidates will be intimated subsequently. The candidate should use his/her own facemask. Candidate have to produce COVID-19 self-declaration in prescribed format at the entry.
In absence of the same, he/she will not be allowed into the exam venue. After each shift the exam center will be sanitized before starting another shift,” it said.
