No.AIRF/53 Dated: June 27, 2017
The Director General(Pers.),
Railway Board,
New Delhi
Dear Sir,

Sub: Filling up 50% DR Quota vacancies through GDCE – Eligibility of staff in same grade pay/pay scale – reg.
Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.E(NG)I-2008/PM1/6 Part dated 23.06.2017 (RBE No.61/2017)

Reference above, it is to be pointed out that, while discussing this issue it was agreed that, the staff working in the same grade pay/pay scale would also be allowed to appear in the selection for GDCE, irrespective of safety or non-safety category posts.

It is quite unfortunate that, while issuing orders, vide Board’s letter supra dated 23.06.2017, a condition has been laid down that, the staff from the same grade pay/pay scale may be allowed to appear in the selection for GDCE only in case selection is from non-safety to safety category posts, which never came for discussion during the course
of meeting.

It is, therefore, requested that, above uncalled for condition may be withdrawn forthwith and the staff working in the same grade pay/pay scale on safety and non-safety category posts be permitted to appear in the selection for GDCE, both for non-safety and safety category posts.
