A board official said that the private agency to conduct the exam will be finalised. Once this is finalised, it would require at least another month's time for the process to begin. The official said that the process of finalising the agency would be completed this month.

This would mean that the process would begin in January, following which the admit card would be released by February 2020. Once the date is announced the RRB NTPC Admit Card 2019 will be released.

Analysts say that the manner in which the entire processes that the RRB is undertaking one could be in for a surprise as well. The board had not given any date for the RRB JE CBT 2 result 2019. However much to the surprise of the candidates, the same was released last week. The same could happen in the case of the RRB NTPC exam 2019 date as well.

Looking at the progress made, there is a chance that the exam process could be delayed further. Tentative date would either be in January or February 2020.

Candidates feel that the board must keep them updated about the ongoing process.
