In order to ensure uniformity through out the RRBs, there is a standard format for application.
The applications received are scrutinized for different eligibility criteria and a list of eligible candidates is drawn. Thereafter, examination date and centre is fixed and call letters are dispatched to eligible candidates one month in advance of the date of examination. Simultaneously the rejected applications data is published in the website for information of in-eligible candidates.
The examinations may be single stage, two stages, single stage written exam followed by skill test/aptitude test/interview depending on the nature of the posts advertised.
Candidates qualified in all stages of the examination are finally called for document verification, wherein, all the records are verified and checked with original documents.
