Ref~: Boord’s letter No. Boord’s letter No.2010/E(Sports)/4(1)11/Policy dated 31.12:2010 (RBE No. 1898/2010).

Attention is invited to para 8.2.7 of Board’s letter No.2010/E(Sports)/4(1)/1/Policy dated 31.12.2010 (amended from time to time) inter-alia specifying that after receiving applications, screening of applications is to be done by a Committee consisting of a Personnel Officer and an ASO/Sports Officer/Sports In-charge of the Railway.
In a sports recruitment held by one of the Zonal Railways, it has been noticed that only single officer viz. ASO was nominated for screening of applications. A candidate who didn’t attach even date of birth certificate and educational qualification certificates with the application was called for trial. Some candidates while appearing for trial didn’t produce original certificates regarding their sports achievements but were subjected to trial. The action of the screening committee has been scrutinized by the vigilance and it has been decided that following may be adopted:-

(i) Recruitment Committee may be constituted before constitution of ‘Scrutiny committee’ so that the ‘Scrutiny Committee’ may take guidance from ‘Recruitment Committee’ in screening of application, when required.

(ii) The notification for Open Advertisement should specify the cut- off date for fulfillment of applicants for the age, educational and sports norms. The notification should also specify the self attested copies of acceptable documents and photograph which must be submitted alongwith the applications.

(iii) A Personnel Officer alongwith another officer may be· nominated by the Recruitment Committee who will also verify the documents of the applicants appearing in trials. The officers so nominated will also ensure that there is no case of impersonation at the time of trial.

This may be ensured by all concerned during the sports recruitment.
