ACT APPRENTICES TO GET BENEFIT OF LARGEST 

RECRUITMENT DRIVE IN RAILWAYS

The Course Completed Act Apprentices (CCAAs) are trained in Railway Establishments as per the policy of Govt. of India.  Earlier some trained Apprentices were directly absorbed in the Railways in emergency situations to meet safety related requirements in exigency of service. However, now, Indian Railways has come out with a policy to ensure a fair, transparent and competitive recruitment process that follows the law and the guidelines laid down by Hon’ble Supreme Court. As per the latest policy, it has been decided to give preference to CCAAs trained in Railway Establishments & possessing NAC by reserving 20% of the vacancies in Direct Recruitment in PB1 + GP-1800 (Level 1 of Group-C as per 7th Pay Commission).

General Manager, South Western Railway has already explained this position in detail to the agitationists and appealed to them to withdraw their agitation, and, to participate by availing the o­ngoing recruitment opportunity.

A massive recruitment exercise has been notified by the Railway Ministry to fill up 62,907 vacancies vide CEN No.02/2018 which is being undertaken by Railway Recruitment Boards; out of which, more than 12,000 vacancies stand earmarked for CCAAs trained in Railway Establishments o­nly.  2,293 vacancies of South Western Railway are also included in the notification for erstwhile Group-D.  This includes about 450 vacancies for CCAAs trained in Railway Establishments o­nly. Applicants who completed the Apprenticeship course have also been given an age relaxation equal to the period of apprenticeship. The applications are open upto 31stMarch, 2018.

The clarification is issued in reference to o­n going agitation and as reported in certain sections of press.
