Indian Railways Recruitment: The second phase of Computer Based Test (CBT) recruitment for CEN 01/2019 Non-Technical Popular Category (NTPC) was conducted by Indian Railways on 09 May and 10 May 2022 for Level 4 (161 posts) and Level 6. 7124 posts). CEN 01/2019 The total number of candidates scheduled for the Computer Based Test (CBT) of NTPC was 1,80,882, out of which 1,28,708 took part in the test. According to the Ministry of Railways, for the first time, Aadhaar-based authentication was done by the national transporter for the candidates. The second phase of the computer-based test was conducted in three shifts, i.e. two shifts on May 09 for Level 6 and one shift on May 10 for Level 4.
According to the Ministry of Railways, the examination schedule was conducted in such a way that candidates of a Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) were given the same question paper so there was no need for normalization. The Level 6 computer-based test was conducted at 156 test centers in 111 cities across 25 states. For Level 6, the overall attendance was about 74 percent. The Level 4 computer-based test was conducted at 89 test centers in 56 cities across 17 states. Overall, Level 4 attendance was about 60.5 percent.
As many candidates raised the issue of their RRB-NTPC testing centers being far away from their cities, National Transport has decided to run more than 65 special trains across the country on May 9 and 10 for the convenience of candidates appearing for their exams. Most special trains were run on May 8 to get the test takers to their test centers in the morning and then, after their tests were over, to send them back home. Special trains were rented from the candidates and no concessions were given.
