Selection of RRB and filling up the priority of Options for the Railway/Unit and posts notified against the RRB

Candidates have applied for the posts of ALP & Technicians against CEN 01/2018 in general and not to any specific RRB. In Railway ALP Recruitment Notification, it was indicated that the option for RRB, Railway and Posts shall be taken from among the candidates securing community wise minimum qualifying marks in 1st stage CBT.

  • Selection Of RRB Region
  • Fill the option for the Railway/Unit and posts notified against the RRB as per Annexure B.
  • The selection of RRBs and priority of options for the posts and Railway/Unit once finally submitted cannot be modified. 
  • Candidates may decide firmly and correctly the RRB of their choice and then only proceed to fill the priority for the Railway/Unit and posts.
  • Candidates can indicate their priority of options for as many posts as they are eligible for. 
  • In case, any candidate opts for only few posts, he/she will be considered only for those opted posts and not for other posts.

Note: All the candidates who have appeared in the 1st stage CBT have to select the RRB and priority of options for Railway/Production unit & posts failing which their candidature will not be considered for shortlisting for 2nd stage CBT.

Selection of Exam Trade [Only One]

To facilitate candidates to appear in only one exam trade in Part ‘B’ of 2nd stage CBT, RRBs have now decided that those candidates who have opted for more than one exam trade in view of their multiple qualification will be given an opportunity to select only one exam trade of their choice. Candidates qualifying in Part ‘B’ of 2nd stage CBT in the chosen trade shall be considered eligible for all the posts for which they possess prescribed minimum educational qualification based on their merit in Part ‘A’ of 2nd stage CBT.

Further, considering that for certain posts the prescribed minimum educational qualification is HSC in Maths and Physics, RRBs have also decided to make available Maths & Physics as an Exam Trade with the syllabus of CBSE for HSC over and above the relevant trades mentioned in the notification for such candidates.
