The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. AB-14017/48/92-Estt (RR) dated 17th November, 1992 on the subject mentioned above. The Recruitment Rules in respect of a number of posts provide for appointment by the method of deputation /deputation (including short term contract). As per existing instructions, the maximum age limit for appointment on deputation/ deputation (including short term contract) is ‘not exceeding fifty six years’ on the closing date of receipt of application. In recent past, this Department has received several requests for revision of the maximum age limit for appointment on deputation/deputation (including short term contract) basis. 2. The matter has, therefore, been examined in consultation with the Union Public Service Commission. Keeping in view the fact that gaining experience in analogous posts at SAG and above levels take time, the limited number of officers available at these levels and to tap the talent/service of officers who have rich domain experience, it has been decided that the following age limit shall be prescribed for appointment on deputation /deputation (including short term contract) basis:- (i) For posts in the SAG level and above ( i.e. Level-14 of the Pay Matrix and above):- ‘Not exceeding fifty eight years’ on the closing date of receipt of application. (ii) For posts below the SAG level ( below Level-14 of the Pay Matrix):- ‘Not exceeding fifty six years’ on the closing date of receipt of application. 3. The Administrative Ministries are requested to take necessary action for amendment of Recruitment Rules/Service Rules to incorporate the revised age limit for deputation/deputation (Including short term contract) for posts of the level of SAG and above.

NFIR - Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways No. II/94/Part I Dated: 16/02/2018 The Chairman, Railway Board, New Delhi Dear Sir, Sub: Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways-reg. Ref: (i) Railway Board's instructions contained in RBE No. 71/2016 dated 21/06/2017 & RBE No. 34/2017 dated 12/04/2017. (ii) NFIR's letter No. II/94/Part I dated 17/07/2017 to Board (CRB). (iii) Railway Board's letter No. E(NG)II/2016/RR-1/8 dated 12/08/2017. ********* Kind attention is invited to the instructions issued by the Railway Board vide RBE No. 71/2016 dated 21/06/2017 and 34/2017 dated 12/04/2017 wherein decision has been taken to reserve 20% vacancies against direct recruitment quota in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC pay matrix from amongst Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways. In this connection, Federation has come across the Centralized Employment No. CEN 02/2018 (published on 10/02/2018 and Closing date 12/03/2018) wherein the Course Completed Act Apprentice trained in Railway establishments have been allowed to compete along with other outside candidates (Para 12.0 of the notification may be seen) for which respective RRBs have been entrusted the job to recruit the candidates for the Zones to which the requirement is to be catered for. In this connection, Federation conveys that this process is time consuming and the designated RRBs are likely to take more than six months to finalize the panels. The Zonal Railways on receipt of the panels will take further period of about 2-3 months to get the selected and empanelled candidates medically examined for issuing posting orders. In order to ensure quick availability of candidates, Federation suggests that the quota of 20% vacancies in respect of Railway Act Apprentices may be allowed to be filled by the Zonal Railways directly without linking to RRB/RRC recruitment process. NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board (CRB) to kindly arrange to review the matter and see that instructions to the General Managers are issued for inducting Course Completed Act Apprentices to the extant of 20% vacancies in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix without linking to the recruitment process conducted by RRBs/RRCs. Federation may kindly be kept advised of the action taken in the matter. Yours faithfully, S/d, (Dr. M. Raghavaiah) General Secretary Source : NFIR … Continue Reading…
