To bring transparency and efficiency in the recruitment process, the Ministry of Railways has integrated technology in a big way.
Railways have replaced heavy multi-lingual question booklets with online tests which has resulted in saving four lakh trees and 319 crore paper sheets.
Recently, Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) have conducted the world’s largest computer based test for about 92 lakh candidates.
The examination was conducted in 351 cities across India, which included remote areas like North East, Kashmir Valley, Lakshadweep and Andaman Islands.
Not only this, the second stage written test and third stage Aptitude (Psychological) test for Assistant Station Masters and Typing Skill Test for Ministerial posts have also been conduced online,where 45,989 candidates have participated.
With the use of technology, both these sets were conducted in one day which otherwise used to take two months. After three stages, 14,000 candidates have been selected.
Their documents verification will take place in September and they will join Railways in October.
