Regarding surrender of number of posts by the North Central Railway

For last couple of days, misleading information is being circulated in some section of media regarding surrender of large number of posts by the North Central Railway. In this regard, it is to be clarified that various communications have been received from Railway Board to all Zonal Railways o­n this subject. Therefore, it is incorrect to view this subject o­n the basis of any single letter. 

Rationalization of posts is a dynamic process which is related to work study. There are some posts which become irrelevant or whose utility diminishes with the advancement of technology. Also, with the introduction of new activities, need for some new posts is felt, as posts corresponding to those activities may not be available. 

In addition, there are some activities that have been outsourced over a period of time but related posts still exist. Those posts need areview. Therefore, a comprehensive review is being done in this background, where posts which are no longer of any utility, can be re-designated from that place and can be utilized at some other place where it is needed.

Work study and manpower rationalization is a holistic and dynamic process which is viewed and done in totality while keeping in view many other letters and notices received from Railway Board from time to time.

At present, non-safety category vacant posts are being reviewed. The posts o­n which recruitment from open market (RRB and RRC) or internal (promotion and departmental examination) sources are under process are also taken in account and thus those posts are not counted in vacancies. Thus the actual number of vacancies which came under the purview of rationalization will be nominal as compared to the total posts.
