Now, finally there is some clarification on why RRB NTPC admit card 2019 is being delayed. Recently railway recruitment boards have published a notification inviting exam conducting agencies to hold computer based tests. That means that RRBs are right now looking for a new organization to execute the tests, most probably because of the paper leak and technical issues caused in the previous exams.
Why is there so much delay in RRB NTPC admit card?
As per the notification, Indian Railways is accepting applications from new exam conducting agencies until today that is September 23, 2019. And then officials from Ministry of Railways will have discussions with the agencies on September 25, 2019. So now it is expected that RRB NTPC admit card 2019 will be released after September 25, 2019.
First, RRBs will publish RRB NTPC application status. Then they may or may not give chance to make corrections. After that, they will publish a notification about the important dates for exam, admit card, city intimation. Then login link will be activated to check exam date and city. After that admit card download link is expected to be available four days before the exam.
All these processes will take time. So exam is not feasible in September. And if it has to be conducted in October, then application status should release in the first week of October.
There may be many more reasons on why application status, admit card, exam date of RRB NTPC 2019 is being delayed. However this is most probable cause as far as recent analysis suggest.
