Scribe related circular for RRB exam Indian Railways

Circular issued by the Railway Board, Indian Railways for providing concessions/facilities including scribes to persons with disabilities while conducting examination for their recruitment. The matter has been reviewed by the Board and the clause of 60%  (criteria for scribe) has been withdrawn and the new rule says that “the scribe can be of any academic discipline if the recruitment is for general post. If the recruitment is for a specialized post, he/she should be from a discipline different from that of a candidate." To view or download the PDF image, click here.

Important information for visually impaired candidates taking the Common Written Exam (CWE) conducted by Institute of Banking Personnel & Selection (IBPS)

Office of the Chief Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities has issued a notice titled "Guidelines prescribed by IBPS for persons with disabilities using scribe" for the IBPS common written exam for clerical positions in 19 public sector banks, to be held on 27 November 2011 (and two more exams on the next two Sundays). The notice says, "that the condition that the scribe should have lesser marks than the candidate and not more than 60% marks in his/her academic stream as prescribed by IBPS for appearing in the common written examination, will put the candidates with disabilities to serious disadvantage. Therefore no such conditions should be prescribed."

As per the recent CCPD order in response to the case by NAB India, IBPS have removed the 60% marks condition for the writer for VI candidates in their CWE . Other conditions remain as they were.
IBPS have informed all their centres, and have also given a helpline number where candidates can call if they face any difficulty. We called the number sometime ago, and were assured that information have been sent to all the exam centres, and the helpline numbers will be working on the exam days as well, which would be a sunday.
Contact numbers – 022-29687000 / 022-29687250 / 022-29687249. These are the board numbers of IBPS, and so ask to connect to the Project co-ordinator of CWE.
