It is pertinent to mention here that the RRB has decided to suspend its NTPC and Level 1 tests following protests by the job aspirants.
On the other hand, the Railways has warned the job aspirants that those found involved in vandalism and unlawful activities while protesting will be barred from ever getting recruited to the department.
