Indian Railways are facing some of the major Roadblocks in RRB NTPC 2020 Recruitment Process. Here are the major challenges faced by the Indian Railways which is leading to the delay in RRB NTPC 2020 Exam:

1. Exam Conducting Agency (ECA) Appointment by RRB

Railways have till now not officially announced the exam dates and admit card release dates of the RRB NTPC 2020 Exam. However, a Senior Railway Official said that once the Exam conducting Agency (ECA) gets appointed and the selection process gets over through tenders & bids, only then the RRB NTPC 2020 Recruitment Examination might be conducted by the end of this year 2020.

Exam Conducting Agency (ECA) is required to undertake meticulous planning, large scale mobilization of resources and efficient capturing, handling and processing of data of Computer Based Test, Computer Based Aptitude Test (CBAT) or Typing Skill Test, Document Verification and all other related services in connection with RRB NTPC 2020 Exam.

2. COVID-19 Lockdown - Delay in Tender & Bid for ECA
