RRB Group D Eligibility Criteria Updated(Feb 23, 2018) Fee, Age-Limit and Educational Qualification Changed

The candidates who fulfill the eligibility criteria of the Group-D Recruitment 2018 are eligible to apply for Group-D Posts. The Railway Department do not check the eligibility criteria at the time of the examination. Document to prove the eligibility will be required at the time of the document verification.

Mega Announcement - Huge Relief for Students
Minimum educational qualifications for all Level I posts were class 10th or ITI or equivalent until July 2017. In July, 2017 for many of these Level I posts, criteria was changed to class 10th and ITI or equivalent. This was not known the people in advance and was unfair to candidates who had been preparing over the past years for this recruitment. Candidates would have got a chance to acquire the required certifications and qualifications had they been given adequate advance notice. Therefore, it has now been decided that for this exam, criteria will be class 10th or ITI or equivalent, again. This will enable more candidates to apply for the posts and ensure wider participation. In addition, Railways has planned further training programmes to ensure better skills for staff.

  1. In Previous Group D Exam the upper age limit was 33.This time the board has reduced to 31.Many aspirants like me affected and unable to appear.. As Most students under go general category and the rrb exam is held once after a long interval.The decision of Board of reduction of upper age limit hurts many students like me.I say that Why Govt is unkind on general category.Kindly request you do not reduce the age limit as earlier was and allow 10th pass students all type of post of Gr D

    1. Hello Nikhil Panda,
      Thanks for putting your issue. I would like to say that the RRB Officials is still working on this issue. Ravi Shankar Prasad, the current Union Government of India,said in a Press Conference that the age criteria will be taken into the consideration and the changes will be made again from 31 to 32 years. But the RRB Officials is not giving any assurance regarding the changes in the Educational Qualifications. So hope for the best and keep preparing and follow our page to get all the latest notifications regarding the Railway Recruitment.

      1. Please age limit consider 18-33

        1. hi samaresh,
          Ministry of Railways have decided to extend the relaxation in upper age limit – 33 for Railway group d 2018.

          1. I have already submitted aplication form for group d
            Under 10th pass but i was not given all post for preference rather according to the earlier 10th pass criteria.
            Will i automatically be eligible for the remaining jobs after gov has already made 10th as minimun edu criteria…

          2. Wait for RRB’s next Update. they will solve this problem soon.

      2. Dear sir:

        We are in confusion of this age relaxation. People are talking in various manners. I would like to know that is there any official statement given by Rrb or not. If so, what was that for?. Regarding ALP or GROUP D.

        Best regards.

        1. FOr both RRB ALP and Group-D Age Relaxation criteria has extended by Railway Ministry.

  3. Narendra Modi govt is playing game with innocent students of railway examination.
