RRB Group D 2019: Registration Process Made Easy


Candidates who were earlier facing problem in registering for the RRB Group D 2019 recruitment can find relief with the amendment. In one of the steps for registration, candidates have to provide their registration number for SSLC/Matric/ITI/NAC qualification. However, the registration number may not be provided on the certificate for some candidates. Such candidates can provide their roll number instead while registration for the RRB Group D 2019 recruitment.

The amendment says,

“NOTE :- 1. During process of Online registration of application, candidates may enter Roll Number in place of Registration Number, if it is not available in their SSLC/Matric certificate/mark sheet. Similarly, candidates with ITI/NAC qualification alone may enter Roll Number in place of Registration Number, if it is not available in their ITI/NAC certificate/mark sheet.

2. Candidates must bring the same certificate during Document Verification whose Registration Number or Roll Number has been filled up while making Online registration and application.”

RRB Group D 2019 Selection Process: Change In PET Pattern


Indian Railway has also made changes to the RRB Group D /RRC Level 1 selection process. In the detailed advertisement released earlier, it is said that candidates who qualify in the RRB Group D Computer Based Test (CBT), will have to appear for Physical Efficiency Test (PET). As per the RRB Group D PET requirements, candidate should be able to lift and carry weight for a specified distance, and be able to run for a specified distance within a given time (weight and distance are different for male and female candidates).

After the amendment, now candidates will be tested for their ability to lift and carry weight for a specified distance in a specified time and they will be allowed in the running test only if they qualify in the ‘lift and carry’ round. Between the two rounds, they will be given some recovery time gap.

The amendment notice says,

“The Physical Efficiency Test (PET) consists of two stages. To ensure uniformity, candidates will be tested for Carrying of Weight to specified distance in specified time first and if successful in this test, for the Running Test after a recovery gap. Failing in the first Test, i.e. Weight carrying will mean elimination at that stage itself. The Weight carrying test will involve lifting a sand bag (without any handle) from a bench/platform at around waist height and carrying it in whichever manner candidate wants to carry above the ground till the destination point without dropping the sandbag on ground.”

All other aspects of the RRB Group D 2019 detailed advertisement remain same.
