The government has said Indian Railways has come out with a policy to ensure fair, transparent and competitive recruitment process.
Rail Minister Piyush Goyal today said in a statement that his Ministry has already reserved 20 per cent posts for Course Completed Act Apprentices who were engaged in Railway establishments under the Apprenticeship Act.
He assured that the recruitment process follows the law and guidelines laid down by Supreme Court.
Mr Goyal said applicants who completed the Apprenticeship course have also been given an age relaxation equal to the period of apprenticeship. He appealed to the youth to apply for these jobs. The last date of application is 31st of this month.
Indian Railways is currently in the midst of a massive recruitment exercise. This is the single largest recruitment ever undertaken by any organisation in the country.
It is also an opportunity for all sections of youth, including the apprentices to join the Indian Railways in a very transparent and fair manner.
