No.AIRF/Revised Classification(525) Dated: December 15, 2016
The Member Staff,
Railway Board,
New Delhi
Dear Sir,
Sub: Revised classification and mode of filling-up of non-gazetted posts – Scheme for filling-up of vacancies – Reg.
Ref: RailwayBoard’s letter No.E(NG)I-2008/PM1/15 dated 09.02.2016 (RBE No.15/2016)
The scheme of filling-up of higher grade non-gazetted posts, both “selection and non-selection”, on the basis of benchmarking, is invogue on the Indian Railways for quite some time and is working well, facilitating smooth and hassle-free promotions of the non-gazetted staff.
This scheme has, therefore, proved its worth and the delay in the name of selection has virtualy been weeded-out on its implementation.
AIRF had, therefore, requested to continue this scheme as “openended” forever rather than extending its currency from time to time in installments.
We would, therefore, seek your personal intervention in the matter, so that timely instructions are issued to all the railway administrations to keep this scheme opened forever as the present currency is going to be expired on 31st December, 2016.
An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.
