The Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) has begun the process of Group C ALP and Technician selection and revision of vacancies on its official website.

All candidates who have appeared for the first stage of the Group C RRB exam 2018, which was conducted from August 11th to September 4th this year are supposed to choose or revise their selection and lock it before October 1st. This process is compulsory for all the candidates to be eligible to appear for the second stage of the recruitment.

The notification of this process was released on Friday, September 21st, along with the information about the increase in the number of Group C Assistant Locomotive Pilot and Technician vacancies from 26,505 to 64,371.

The process of selection and locking of specific vacancies by candidates was supposed to be processed after the stage 1 result, but the board has now decided to conduct this process before the result.

Candidates can go through the revised vacancy list, based on which they can select or revise the positions for which they wish to apply. Candidates who are eligible for more than one position can apply for multiple positions as before, and may also revise the positions they want to apply for.

Candidates must also choose the exam/trade they want to appear for during the second stage of the exam. The RRB has decided to make maths and physics available as an exam trade over and above the relevant trades mentioned in the original notification.
