This initiative by the RRB will end all the mal practices involved in the recruitment process in railway jobs in India. The Aadhar linking with the recruitment process will make the entire recruitment process transparent. The RRB has also made an appeal to all those aspirants of Railway jobs to enroll for Aadhar cards in case they are not yet enrolled.
Several Allegations of Malpractices in Railway Jobs
Advantages of Aadhaar linking with railway forms:
- The RRB has made it mandatory for all the railway examinations for recruitment to collect Aadhaar card number of candidates. This will not only help in capturing the personal and geographical details of the candidates, but also all the biometric data such as retina scan and finger print.
- Every railway recruitment examination will have biometric attendance where the candidates will have to submit their finger prints. These finger prints will be crosschecked with the one stored in Aadhaar data. On full verification, the examinee will be allowed to sit in the recruitment exam.
- In India, almost 112 crore population already got registered with Aadhaar. A maximum of which lie in the category of the educated youths and students who are also the job aspirants. So this is a hassle free process to know the details of the candidates who are applying for the recruitment process.
