Thousands of candidates are tweeting to get a chance to modify data in RRB NTPC and RRB Group D application forms. They are urging the Railway Recruitment Boards to give them a chance to rectify their mistakes by editing application form. Only then, they will be able to download the awaited RRB NTPC admit card 2020, and RRB Group D admit card 2020. The computer based tests for the railway recruitment are scheduled to start from December 15, 2020.
The most common reasons for form rejections are invalid photograph, invalid signature, duplicate application.
Several candidates whose forms were rejected due to invalid photograph and signature are unable to understand the exact problem in their images. However they say that if they get a chance to correct the form then they will get better images this time and re-upload them.
Whereas those with duplicate application form issues are providing reasons why they applied multiple times. Some were unable to understand whether form was successful or not, some did it by mistake. As per the social media posts, there are various unique cases where forms were considered duplicate.
A common reason given by candidates demanding modification link is that they have already spent so long preparing for the exam (since there has been a long gap between form submission, and display of status), having form rejected at this point would lead them to have wasted a large part of their career years.
