RRB Group C Admit Cards 

It is now more than one and half month since the last date of application for the post of RRB Group C Recruitment 2018 (ALP & Technician). The online application for the Group C Posts in Railway Recruitment Board 2018 was closed on 31st March. And as per the notification the exam is scheduled to be conducted in the month of April/May. Since April has passed and half of the May month is also passed so now it is sure that the exam for the RRB Group C posts (Assistant Loco Pilot & Technician) will be conducted after June.

As there is no official notification from the side of Railway Recruitment Board for the CBT Exam dates for the Group C posts. And there is no release date for the Admit card for the First Stage CBT exam. This is due to a large number of application received by the Railway recruitment control board for the Group C and Group D posts. More than 2 crore applications are received by the RRB for the 90,000 posts.

According to some sources, the Railway Recruitment Board is finalising the examination centres for the exam and soon will release the admit cards for the RRB Group C posts. The RRB Group C posts exam will be conducted first and the RRB Group D exam will be conducted second. This is because there are fewer vacancies in RRB Group C posts (26,502) as compared to the vacancies in Group D.
