Indian Railway had released indicative advertisement for recruitment on more than 1 lakh Group D posts on February 23 and had begun the application process on March 12, 2019.
In the detailed advertisement for RRC CEN 01/2019, Indian Railway had advertised 1,03,769 Group D posts. Initially, in the advertisement, the recruitment board had notified that after CBT, candidates twice the number of vacancies will be called for Document Verification.
However, RRBs have released an amendment to the advertisement which states that the number of candidates to be called for Document Verification process will be 1.5 times the number of vacancies available.
The amendment says, "Based on the performance of candidates in CBT subject to their qualifying in PET, candidates 1.05 times (i.e. number of extra candidates to be called for Document Verification shall be 5% beyond the number of notified vacancies) the number of vacancies will be called for Document Verification as per their merit and options."
