Railways to fill up 40000 vacant posts soon

Railways have lifted the freeze order, issued six months ago, on the process of recruitment of about 40,000 posts of Group C employees.

The process of recruitment under Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) was frozen by the Railway Ministry in May.

"There was an order from the Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee to stop the recruitment process undertaken by the RRBs. Now with the appointments of new chairmen in 20 all RRBs, the freeze order has been lifted last week and the process of recruitment has commenced," a senior Railway Ministry official said.

RRBs will conduct examinations for the appointments of various posts including loco driver, station master, supervisor and guards in February next year.

Indian Railways is the largest employer after the Defence and every year about 50,000 employees retire from the Railway.

My total regular service is more than 35 yrs. After Unilateral Transfer to new unit accepting bottom seniority in bottom grade I had represented for 3rd Financial upgradation. But the same is turned down stating that I had not completed 30 yrs. of regular service in new unit.

Is it necessary to have 30 yrs.of completed service in the new unit to have 3rd financial upgradation?
