NEW DELHI: The Indian Railways which recently released an official notification for filling up about 90,000 posts in group C and group D and for 9,500 openings has received over two crore job applications from across the nation.
Meanwhile, five days are still remaining for the online registration to end.
“Till date, over 2 crore candidates have applied for the posts and the number will rise further as five more days remain before the deadline comes to an end,” said a Railway Ministry official.
Given the magnitude and the sheer scale of the test that is being conducted, the candidates will be given a window to check their answers after the completion of the exams and after the results are declared to maintain transparency.
Question papers will be provided to the candidates in 15 languages — Hindi, English, Urdu, Bengali, Punjabi, Gujarati, Kannada, Konkani, Assamese, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Odia, Tamil and Telugu — to ensure opportunities for candidates across India.
