Accordingly, it is announced that the Computer Based Tests (CBTs) may have to be conducted in compliance with the safety measures against COVID-19 in the greater interest of public health. As this requires detailed study and analysis of the situation, therefore, citing similar reasons, the RRB has announced the revised dates of bid submission and opening of technical bids. Prospective bidders are advised to visit ireps.gov.in to get notifications of any further revision in dates or other updates.
