Candidates who wish to apply for the 26,000 job vacancies in Railways through the Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) exam must have their Aadhaar number.

The board had then said that verification during the examination is critical for fair conduct of RRB examinations and prevention of attempts at impersonation. 
 
Interested candidates seeking employment in the Railways need to have their 12 digit Aadhaar number at the time of filling up the online application form. Those who have enrolled for Aadhaar but have not received Aadhaar Card may furnish 28 digit Aadhaar Enrollment ID printed at the Aadhaar Enrolment slip. The Aadhaar number will be used to match the fingerprints taken through biometric attendance system at the time and venue of the examination, with that stored on the Aadhaar server to establish correct identity of the candidate.
