Patna: On Monday, thousands of students created a ruckus at the Rajendra Nagar terminal of Patna, the capital of Bihar. Due to the performance of the students, many trains were diverted and some had to be cancelled. In fact, alleging irregularities in Railway's NTPC (Non-Technical Popular Category) examination, thousands of candidates reached the Rajendra Nagar Terminal in Patna at around 3 pm and blocked the up and down tracks. There was chaos till evening.
Seeing the same situation, Patna Collector Chandrashekhar Singh and SSP Rajendra Nagar reached the terminal and tried to convince the students, but when the students did not agree to listen to anyone and continued to create a ruckus, the police had to resort to lathi-charge. The students have alleged that the change made in the Railway Group D examination is not correct. The students said they filled out the form in February 2019. The railways had also said to conduct the exam in September 2019, but the exam was not held at the scheduled time. The department had then assured in December 2021 that the CBT exam would start from February 23, 2022.
Suddenly, the railways have issued a notice on Monday stating that the Group D exam will be conducted under not one, but two exams. The students said that this decision is not for the good of the students. He says that the students were preparing for an exam, but now they will have to face problems due to this decision. The students also alleged that the exam has already been delayed and now it will take another 2-3 years after two exams are conducted. The same was said by the railways that the students are being misled. Advertising was taken out for a total of 13 categories. It is distributed in 5 groups. The level is kept from two to six. The process of appointment in each category has been adopted in a phased manner. Complete transparency has been maintained by the Railways.
