Selection Procedure

RRB calls applications from the eligible applicants through “ON LINE” for various Technical and non-technical categories as well as Para medical posts in Group 'C' cadre, as per indent(s) submitted by Chief Personnel Officer of Northeast Frontier Railway. Normally, the employment notification is published on the “Employment News” (A publication of Government of India) and also in RRB Siliguri’s website. “Indicative notice” is also given through leading National & Local News Papers for wide circulation. The applications (On-line), as received in response to such notification, are scrutinized for eligibility and the eligible candidates are called for Computer Based Test (CBT) with call letters being generated by the RRB and downloaded by the candidates minimum fifteen days in advance of the date of the CBT .

In most categories of jobs, there is no interview.
