Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) will announce the result of RRB JE CBT 2 (CEN 03/2018) by October 20, 2019, as per latest news reports. A leading news channel, in its online portal has published that they have been told by railway officials about this date.
At the time of publishing this news, any official notification about the result date is not available on any of the RRB websites. The news that talked about the date also mentions that result will be published on RRB Chandigarh website rrbcdg.gov.in. However it is confirmed that the result will be published separately by each of the railway recruitment boards on their websites.
The final answer key of RRB JE CBT 2 was published on October 10, 2019. After CBT 1, railways published the result twenty days after publishing final answer keys. Therefore for CBT 2 the expected result date became by October 30, 2019. However there are actually high chances that result could release early, by October 20, 2019!
There are two reasons behind why result of the second stage computer based test is expected soon. First is that at the time of CBT 1, the number of candidates involved was much larger. Now it is much less. So the time taken to publish result should be shorter too.
The other reason is that Diwali is next week. A number of times it has been observed that government bodies complete pending events, like releasing notifications and admit cards, or publishing results, before such major holidays as during that time, many people go on leave or get busy with celebrations.
Indian Railways will shortlist candidates for document verification, on the basis of RRB JE CBT 2 result. The number of candidates who will be declared qualified will be equal to 1.5 times the number of vacancies. More candidates than the number of vacancies will be called because often some candidates get rejected for incomplete documents, or being absent.
When the result is announced, it will be published in pdf format. There will be one file for each RRB. In that file, there will be roll numbers of shortlisted candidates in the order or roll number and not merit.
The shortlisting for DV is done on the basis of normalized marks obtained in CBT 2, and preference order of posts and railway recruitment boards.
Qualifying marks to be obtained are 40% for UR, 30% for OBC, 30% for SC, and 25% for ST. However cut off will be higher than this. Cut off for RRB JE CBT 2 result are not expected to be published with result. This is because category wise cut off will be changed after DV. Category number wise and reservation wise cut off will be published after final panel are published.
