Railway Recruitment Policy
Functioning of Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) has been reviewed in October 2009 and instructions for streamlining the working of Railway Recruitment Boards have already been issued in order to make the system of recruitment more transparent and fair. Under the new methodology, examination for the particular post will be held on the same date simultaneously by all the Railway Recruitment Boards and in addition to Hindi, Urdu and English, the question papers shall be set in local languages listed in the Eighth Schedule of the Constitution of India falling within the jurisdiction of that Railway Recruitment Board. Fee for Railway Recruitment examinations has also been waived for women candidates, minorities candidates and candidates belonging to economically backward classes having annual family income of less than Rs. 50,000/-
