The Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) said in a statement that the application fee refund transaction initiated by the RRBs is still under progress and is likely to be completed for all candidates by December 20, 18.

"The Application fee refund transaction initiated by the RRBs is still under progress and is likely to be completed for all candidates by 20-12-18," the statement said.
"Accordingly, the link for correction of Bank Account details for the candidates whose refund transaction has failed will be live from 21-12-18," it added.
Candidates who have appeared for the railway exam for Assistant Loco Pilot (ALP) and technician recruitment, will receive a refund on the exam fees deposited by them during registration process.
The Railways had earlier announced that candidates belonging to reserved categories will receive a total refund, those belonging to general category will receive a part of it.
"Examination fees were levied to discourage non-serious candidates who applying and do not appear for the exam. This would save the Railways substantial amount of resources spent on setting up infrastructure to enable candidates to appear for exams," a statement from the Railways said earlier.
Examination fees for recruitment were fixed at Rs. 500 for non-exempted candidates.

The whole of this amount will be refunded to those candidates from these categories who appear for the exam.
