The exams were held over eight months ago, from 28 March to 30 April, 2016.

Originally scheduled to be declared around August, the Railway Boards have been deferring the results of RRB NPTC for sometime now. The Boards attributed the delay to the massive number of test takers. Over 56 lakh candidates appeared for the test.

Last month, RRB Thiruvananthapuram Region announced the results and dates of RRB NTPC stage 2 exam, only to withdraw everything within a few hours. The Board said that a draft of results data were uploaded on the official website only to test the servers. 'Final results will be uploaded shortly', it added.
