Railway job aspirants have taken to Twitter demanding examination dates for recruitment being held by the Indian Railways for its Group D posts.

Another related trend, #RRB_EXAM_CALENDAR, has also garnered more than 2.4 lakh impressions.
“The Railway Ministry should listen to the voice of the students of India and get the remaining railway exams done soon and release the Group D timetable,” a Twitter user said.

In December last year, the railways had said that the RRC group D exam will begin after the RRB NTPC exam is over.
In a notification released recently, after the candidates protested online, the Railway Recruitment Board or RRB — another recruitment arm of Indian Railways — had said the non-technical popular category (NTPC) examinations will be held on July 23, 24, 26 and 31.
