Many candidates have lost a chance to appear for railway group D recruitment exam (RRB Group D exam), due to errors in photograph and signature. The railway recruitment cells (RRC) released the final application status on September 6. "The decision on application status releasing on September 6 will be final and binding," the RRCs had said earlier.
For the second time, the RRCs had decided to verify the application status of the candidates after several applicants complained that their application was rejected despite adhering to the rules.
Invalid photograph and signature have rendered many candidates ineligible for the exam.
In every job application candidates need to upload their photograph and signature. The online application submission portal allows scanned images of photographs and signatures of specific dimension; without which the application is rejected.
In the group D exam notification, it was mentioned that, "the color photograph must have been taken on or after 01.01.2019 in a professional studio. Photographs taken using mobile and self-composed portraits may result in rejection of application."
As of now the exact number of candidates whose applications have been rejected is not known.
The tentative schedule for the computer-based test for Group D recruitment is September and October.
Indian Railways had advertised 1,03,769 Group D vacancies in February this year. The application process was conducted through March to April. The recruitment process is being carried out by the railway recruitment cells.
