RRB NTPC 2020: New Rules and Regulations

Wearing masks

Candidates will have to wear masks at the examination centre. The railways will make arrangements to tackle impersonation. The temperature of candidates will be checked at the entry gate.

Maintaining social distancing

As there will be mass gathering at RRB NTPC exam centres, the number of candidates to be allotted in a particular centre will be cut down. This will be done to maintain social distance between two candidates.

Sanitisation of exam centres

The sanitization of exam centres after each shift will be done to prevent the spread of coronavirus.


Students biometric impression will not be captured at the exam centres. At the entry gate, RRB NTPC admit card and photo-identity proof will be checked before allowing candidates to enter the exam hall.

RRBs are yet to announce RRB NTPC exam dates. The exam dates will be announced once the exam conducting agency is finalized. The admit cards will be issued to candidates four days prior to the date of CBT.
