The official press release stated, “It has been mentioned that aspirants of Railway job have indulged in vandalism/ unlawful activities like protesting on railway tracks, disruption of train operations and damaging railway properties. Such misguided activities are highest level of indiscipline rendering such aspirants unsuitable for Railway/Government job.”
The Rail Ministry said the videos of such activities will be examined with the help of specialized agencies and the candidates/aspirants found indulged in unlawful activities will be liable for police action as well as lifetime debarment from obtaining any Railway job.
The notice further mentioned that Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) are committed to conduct fair and transparent recruitment process maintaining the highest standards of integrity.
“Railway job aspirants/candidates are advised not to be misguided or come under the influence of such elements who are trying to use them for fulfilling their own selfish ends,” the notice added.
It is pertinent to mention here that several RRB NTPC aspirants had earlier alleged multiple discrepancies in the declaration of the RRB NTPC 2021 results.
