Lakhs of aspirants who had applied for railway jobs are now asking the government to lift the ban and resume the recruitment process. The Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) had put Group D and NTPC nominations on hold after candidates’ protests over alleged malpractice during the investigation took a violent turn. At the time of the hiring process being halted, the RRB had said it had assembled a committee to investigate the allegations, which will file its report on March 4.
As previously reported by News18.com, the report has been finalized by the committee. If sources are to be believed, the committee has suggested that the number of shortlisted candidates for the second round of NTPC recruitment should be increased. There is no official communication about this yet. Meanwhile, candidates have started protests online, seeking exam dates and revised results.
