The recruitment process for the police forces in Assam hit a snag on Sunday amid extreme weather conditions prevailing over Northeast.
In light of heavy rainfall and landslides across parts of Assam limiting travel, the process for recruitment to Assam Police was postponed today.
According to officials, the exam scheduled to take place on May 16, has now been postponed to May 23.
The recruitment process was set to take place in the Dima Hasao district of Assam, one of the worst hit districts of the state.
Earlier, heavy rainfall and flooding at the Haflong Railway station caused disruption in rail services, leaving commuters stranded.
On the request of the district disaster management authority, Assam Rifles under the aegis of Spear Corps, undertook relief work at the Railway station and also made arrangements for evacuating the stranded passengers.
Meanwhile, the Physical Endurance Test (PST) and Physical Standard Test (PET) exams have also been postponed for similar reasons and are scheduled to take place on May 23.
