“It’s Less Than Half Of Total Vacancy,” Says RTI On ‘The Biggest Recruitment Drive’ Of Railways
This will be the last of the four recruitment announced by the Indian Railways this year.
In 2018-2019, the railways announced close to 3 lakh jobs. While selection process is underway for those advertised in 2018, the application process has already started for those notified this year (except the RRC group D posts). Due to large number of applicants, the railway recruitment boards are taking months together to complete each selection phase. The recruitment boards are conducting 5 out of 7 current recruitment of the railways.
