Sub: Allowing candidates to take away the Question booklets after written examination
Ref: Board’s letter No. E(RRB)/2004/25/14 dt. 03.05.2005
The issue of allowing candidates to take away the Question Booklets after written examination has been under consideration of Board for a long time. Some of the Chairperson/RRBs have brought to the notice of Board that they are facing constraints of space for storage/handling of the question booklets. Besides, there is regular demand from the candidates to provide the copy of their question booklets through RTIs which adds up to their workload also. Therefore, it was suggested that the candidates appearing for RRB examinations may also be allowed to take away their question booklets after the written examination like in other recruitment agencies.
In view of above, matter has been deliberated upon by the Board and suppression of the Board’s letter under reference above, it has been decided that the candidates appearing for RRB examinations may be allowed to take away their question booklets after the completion of written examination. However the following safeguards need to be ensured:
1. The candidate(s) should be allowed to leave the examination hall only after the conclusion of written examination
2. The year of examination and exam code only be printed on each page of the question booklet on the top right corner to avoid its misuse, if any, in future.
3. A carbon less duplicate top sheet / covering page should be introduced in the booklet. The first and original top sheet be separated by the invigilator after being filled in and duly signed. These collected original top sheets should be returned to RRB through Officer Incharge.
4. These instructions shall be effective for all the RRB examinations against CEN 02/2014 and onwards.
