RRB Group D Recruitment 2019: The Indian Railways has amended the selection process for RRB Group D 2019/RRC Group D 2019. The application process was started on March 12th, 2019. There are over 1,00,000 group D vacancies in RRB. Indian Railways released the detailed advertisement for RRC Group D recruitment on March 11th, 2019 and has now made some amendments in the selection and registration processes.
RRB Group D 2019: New Registration Process
The candidates, who were facing problem in registrations for the RRB Group D 2019 recruitment, can find relief with this new amendment. In one of the steps during registration, candidates required to provide their registration numbers for SSLC/Matric/ITI/NAC qualification status. However, the registration numbers are not given or written on the certificate of some candidates. Now, after the ammendment, such candidates can provide their roll numbers instead of registration numbers while registering for the RRB Group D 2019 recruitment.
The amendment says, “During process of Online registration of application, candidates may enter Roll Number in place of Registration Number, if it is not available in their SSLC/Matric certificate/mark sheet. Similarly, candidates with ITI/NAC qualification alone may enter Roll Number in place of Registration Number, if it is not available in their ITI/NAC certificate/mark sheet.”
It further says, “Candidates must bring the same certificate during Document Verification whose Registration Number or Roll Number has been filled up while making Online registration and application.”
RRB Group D 2019 Selection Process: Change In PET Pattern
The Railways has also made some changes to the selection process of RRB Group D /RRC Level 1. In the detailed notification issued earlier, it said that the candidate, qualified RRB Group D Computer Based Test (CBT), will need to appear for Physical Efficiency Test (PET).
The candidate should be able to lift and carry weight for a specified distance, and be able to run for a specified distance within a given time (weight and distance are different for male and female candidates) as per Physical Efficiency Test (PET).
After the amendment, now candidates will be tested for their ability to lift and carry weight for a specified distance in a specified time and they will be allowed in the running test only if they qualify in the ‘lift and carry’ round. Between the two rounds, they will be given some recovery time gap.
The new amendment notice of RRC Group C says,
“The Physical Efficiency Test consists two rounds and to ensure uniformity and fitness, the candidates will be carrying a specific weight to specified distance in given time. If successful in this test, the candidates will be tested in a running test after a recovery gap. Failing in the first Test, i.e. Weight carrying test will mean direct elimination at the level of stage one itself.
The ammendment further adds, “The Weight carrying test will involve lifting a sand bag (without any handle) from a bench/platform at around waist height and carrying it in whichever manner. The weight is required to carry till the destination point without dropping the sandbag on ground.”
Meanwhile, all other aspects of the RRB Group D 2019 detailed advertisement remain same for all candidates.
