“Caught in the crossfire” over the rail exams, NTPC, the country’s largest power producer has written to the Railways to rename its Non-Technical Popular Categories (NTPC) tests organised by the Railway Board.

The Railway exams have been in the news for the last week over large-scale protests over certain irregularities in its screening process.

The abbreviation of the exams which is the same as the one used for the power producer has been widely used to refer to the controversial test during the reportage on the issue.

“This is with reference to the recent protest in some parts of the country with respect to Railway Recruitment Board Non-Technical Popular Categories (NTPC RRB) exam of Indian Railways,” a letter from NTPC (the power corporation) states.
