The East Coast Railway (ECoR) has opened outreach camps to look into the concerns and doubts raised by the candidates in regard to the results of first Stage Computer Based Test (CBT) of Non-Technical Popular Categories (NTPC). 

“East Coast Railway has decided to hold a Camp for careful listening of the complaints and suggestions of the aspirant candidates. Outreach camps at each Division and also one at Bhubaneswar have been opened where aspirant candidates can come and register their grievances which will be placed at the highest level for redressal of the grievances,” the ECoR said in a statement issued on January 27.

The ECoR said Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw, after listening to the concerns of aspirants, has advised apex authorities of Railway Board and Zonal Railways to open High Power Committees to look into the concerns and doubts raised by the aspirants in regard to the results of 1st Stage Computer Based Test (CBT)-1, published on January 14 and 15, 2022. 

Candidates have been given three weeks time up to February 16, 2022 to submit their grievances to the committee. They can lodge their concerns and suggestions to the committee at email id:rrbcommittee@railnet.gov.in. 

“All Chairpersons of RRBs have also been directed to receive the grievances of candidates through their existing channels, compile these grievances and send the same to Committee,” the statement said. 

The committee after examining these concerns will submit their recommendations by March 4, 2022. The panel will also go through the results of the 1st Stage CBT and methodology used for shortlisting candidates for 2nd Stage CBT and make recommendations.
