Best of luck and sincere advise

The RRB examination is very straight forward and  transparent with no opportunity for unfair means to work. Therefore, don’t get allured if any institute or person offering sure shot result on payment of money. Even the interview has been dispensed with to make sure equal opportunity to all.
