The RRB had issued a notification of 35,000 posts at various level in Indian Railway and NTPC in 2019 and also conducted an examination. As all those who qualified were waiting for the posting, the RRB issued fresh notification for another examination last week and also said that the students have to give two examinations, in the form of preliminary and mains in future. This has provoked job aspirants and students to undertake agitation in Bihar.
