Post Preference in RRB NTPC according to Medical conditions 

As mentioned above many posts in Indian Railways require high level of physical fitness especially eyesight and Indian Railways takes eye vision of candidates seriously.  If you don’t posses required eyesight standards then you would not be able apply for certain posts.

  • ASM, TA, GG, T.Asst: Distance vision: 6/9, 6/9 without eyeglasses.
  • All Other posts: Distance vision should be 6/12, 6/18 with OR without eyeglasses.

Near Vision for all positions: Sn: 0.6, 0.6 without eyeglasses and must pass test for Colour, Binocular, Night Vision &  Field of Vision.

RRB NTPC: Eye-Vision.How to check 6/6, 6/9, 6/12, 6/18 Explained.

Note : In the online application you will be required to state whether you fulfill required eye vision condition.


If you don’t fulfill necessary vision standards there is no need to worry. Choose ‘No’ and it will remove ASM, TA and GG posts from the preference list. So our recommendation for all candidates out here is to get their eyesight checked and and make sure whether they meet required eye vision standard. If you enter wrong information you risk getting debarred from the entire process.

For those candidates who have applied for ASM & TA posts will be required to submit a certificate issued by eye specialist for aptitude test.

Example to explain selection process for RRB NTPC: 

Gopi is a graduate, living in Mumbai. His parents live in Uttar Pradesh. He wants to apply for the posts of Assistant Station Manager (ASM) and Traffic Apprentice (TA) and wants to work somewhere in Central/North India.

He goes through the list of posts and he sees that Goods Guard has more vacancies than ASM and TA and he wonders whether more vacancies mean better chances of selection.  So he applies to Secunderabad RRB with the following preference :

Gopi managed to score 100 in the RRB NTPC examination. Secunderabad RRB has fixed 85 as cutoff for ASM post.

1st Scenario: Since ASM was Gopi’s first preference and his score is greater than 85, he will be called for Aptitude test, which if he manages to clear, he will be called for document verification.

2nd Scenario: Gopi was weak in Aptitude (the competition was strong) and therefore he couldn’t clear Aptitude Test. Now he will be considered for this other preferences. The cutoff for TA was 79 and he cleared it. Now he will be considered for TA post.

There are 95 general vacancies for TA in Secunderabad RRB. If his score is in top 95, he will be selected as TA after document verification (No Aptitude Test in TA).
3rd Scenario: Gopi wasn’t among the top 95 general candidates and hence he wasn’t selected as TA. He will now be considered for CA post and the process will be repeated as stated above.

Friends we hope the above information help you make sound decision for post preference in RRB NTPC application form. We wish you all the very best for the exam. If you have answered the questions above for expert recommendation for post preference, please wait for 3-4 days for receiving it.

    Sir, if A hv scored 75 marks & B 65 marks ..for ASM upper cut of being 75 & lower cut of 65. Who will b selected first for that post if A hv chosen it as 2nd preference & B hv chosen it as 1st preference..?


      If A is getting his first preference, then he will get that otherwise he will get the ASM post.
      Even after that any post of ASM is left, B will also get it .

  • ankush khosla

    I have already given my exam, but forgot to download the application form after the submission . so what should i do to get that form .
    Looking fr your positive revert.


      As of now, it is not mandatory to have the application form.
      Still if you want you can contact RRB.
      They may guide you better.

  • Purnendu Mukherjee

    Let us assume, cut off for CA is 95 and cut of for ASM is 85. Gupi have scored 90. But his first preference ia CA. Then what will happen?? Will he be called for ASM or will be rejected as he has not qualified for his first preference?


      1. He will not be called for CA
      2. If he has filled ASM also as his preference after CA, then definitely he will be called for ASM
