Dear Sir,

Sub:Extending numbers of exemption to Appendix-III, Part-I Examination 2012 passed candidates

Your kind attention is invited towards para 5(iv)(a) of the Advance Correction No.215, IREM, Volume-I (Revised Edition 1989), which has been circulated to  all the Zonal Railways and Production Units vide Board’s letter RBA No.58/2006 dated 06.11.2006,   wherein it has been stipulated that:-

“A candidate who passes (secures 40% or more marks in case of “General” Category/30% or more marks in case of “SC/ST” Category) in each of the compulsory subjects of Part-I Examination, i.e. “Advance Commercial Book Keeping” and “General Rules and Procedures”, but fails in Part-II Examination of that year, shall be exempted from appearing in Part-I Examination during the successive two attempts in the next two consecutive examinations”.

 The pattern of Appendix-III (IREM) Examination was subsequently changed vide RBA No.36/2014, circulated vide Board’s letter No.A(E)/A3/2014/1/1 dated 11.11.2014, whereby Part-I and Part-II Appendix-III (IREM) Examination were combined in a single examination, to be conducted on yearly basis. Consequent upon above change in the pattern of Appendix-III (IREM) Examination, as circulated vide Railway Board’s letter supra dated 11.11.2014, it was laid down in Railway Board’s letter No.A(E)/A3/2015/1/1 dated 03.03.2015 (RBA No.18/2015) that, “since the Appendix-III (IREM) Examination are to be held on a combined single examination, the exemption i.e. Pass Exemption granted through Board’s letter No.A(E)/A3/2K/9 dated  06.11.2006(RBA No.58/2006) shall no longer be applicable after Appendix-III (IREM) Examination 2015”. It was further laid down therein that, “a candidate who had obtained exemption in 2010 and 2012 from appearing Part-I of above mentioned exam as per Board’s letter dated 06.11.2006 ibid shall be granted one-time exemption from appearing the compulsory papers (ABK and GRP) of Appendix-III (IREM) Examination 2015”.

Some candidates of ECoR who had appeared in Appendix-III (IREM) Exam 2012 and passed one exam would avail only one chance of exemption while those who appeared in the year 2010 were privileged to avail two chances of exemption. Thus, the candidates who had passed Part-I Examination 2012 were disadvantaged of one attempt of exemption from appearing in Part-I of Appendix-III (IREM) Exam owing to change in the pattern of exam vide Board’s letter ibid dated 11.11.2014. This is apparently a gross discrimination with such candidates.

The Board are, therefore, requested to look into the matter and justice be accorded to such candidates who appeared in Appendix-III (IREM) Exam of 2012 and passed Part-I of the same successfully as a “Special Case”.
