RRB SOPs

The Railways said that the RRBs are committed to hold the CBT for all the notified vacancies and have been actively assessing the ground situation imposed due to the pandemic. "Now that experience of conducting examination or the JEE for IITs and NEET is there, it was felt that Railways too can start the process which had to be stopped due to COVID-19 pandemic."
