RRB JE Cut-off Protest: Candidates Demand Revision Of Results For Non-Technical CBT 1

Post declaration of the results, a large number of candidates are not satisfied with the cut-offs and have protested against it. The candidates have also made a request to the RRBs and the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal to re-consider and review the results of CBT 1. According to the candidates, the RRB JE CBT 1 was a non-technical paper and in no way does it check the technical aptitude that is required for a Junior Engineer post in the Indian Railways.

Also, the notification CEN 03/2018 had listed CBT 1 as a qualifying examination. While many candidates have successfully qualified the examination, they are not eligible to appear for the CBT 2 examination due to very high cut-offs that have been kept. As per various claims, the candidates who have been selected are those engineers who have been practicing for SSC CGL and other government examinations. The reports also said that the engineering graduates who are also preparing for the GATE examination have not been able to do good.

The candidates have not left any chance to spread their voice. Many candidates have also taken to the social media platform, Twitter, to voice their discontentment and request the authorities to revise the cut-offs.

The candidates are making a request that all those who have qualified the CBT 1 exam by scoring 50% and above, should be permitted to appear for the second stage CBT examinations.
