Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) are yet to announce the exam date for RRB NTPC (CEN 01/2019) CBT 1 and issue its admit card. It is also relevant to note that for this exam, application status has also not been released yet. Ironically, it has now been one complete year since the Non Technical Popular Category notification was published.
One year anniversary of RRB NTPC CEN 01/2019 this week
Did you know that the indicative notification for four employment notices CEN 01/2019, CEN 02/2019, CEN 03/2019, RRC CEN 01/2019 was published on 23rd February last year. And then, the detailed advertisement for RRB NTPC recruitment was published on 28th February. Candidates who applied in response to it, have thus been waiting for one year for the exam date…
RRB NTPC Exam Date, Admit Card 2020 Soon?
The first stage computer based test was supposed to be held from June to September last year. However in October, the RRBs published a notice saying that the exam will be postponed. And since then, there has been no official update.
It is important to note that Indian Railways also started searching for a new exam conducting agency for RRB NTPC and Group D exams, and this hunt has been on since September last year. Until now, as per news reports, no agency has been finalized.
In other news, the formation of the National Recruitment Agency may be fruitful and NRA may conduct the railway exams.
Why is the 28 March date being circulated in the media for the RRB NTPC admit card / exam date?
As mentioned before, there is no official update on exam date or admit card date for RRB NTPC exam.
A few youtube videos, and social media posts claimed that RRBs will announce these dates:
- Viewing of exam city and date – 28 March
- Downloading of free train travel authority for SC / ST candidates – Apr
- Download of e call letter – 4 days prior to exam

Note: There is no official proof for these dates. These are what youtubers and social media posters have claimed they have got. Since everything spreads really fast on the internet, hence the date 28 March 2020 has become associated with RRB NTPC 2020 exams. As of now, Railway Recruitment Boards have not announced any such date.
