Outreach camps at each division and also one at Bhubaneswar have been opened where aspirant candidates can come and register their grievances which will be placed at the highest level for redressal of the grievances.

On January 26, the Railways suspended its NTPC and Level 1 exams after the candidates went on a rampage in some states alleging irregularities in the process.

The railways had on Tuesday issued a general notice, warning its job aspirants that those found involved in vandalism and unlawful activities while protesting would be barred from ever getting recruited in the railways. This came a day after protesters squatted on railway tracks in several places in Bihar.
