RRB NTPC 2023 Exam: Indian Railways to Run 65 Special Trains For Candidates

New Delhi, 9th May 2022: The Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) has decided to run more than 65 special trains around the country for  candidates who are appearing for the RRB NTPC 2022 exam (Railway Recruitment Board Non-Technical Popular Categories 2022). 

A majority of these trains began running one day before the exams (on May 8) to let students arrive in the morning, and subsequently, to drop them off to their respective hometowns after the exams are completed. According to the officials, the candidates will have to pay their own fares and no concessions would be granted. This is being done because many RRB NTPC applicants have complained about the exam centres being too far away from their hometowns.


  • The Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) is conducting the RRB NTPC 2022 exam (Railway Recruitment Board Non-Technical Popular Categories 2022) on 9 and 10 May.
