Dear Sir,

Sub: Exemption from PET – Reg.

Pursuant to policy of the Railway Board to regularize the Course Completed Act Apprentices, who had undergone training in various railway installations, against 20% of the Open Market Recruitment Quota, some of the Course Completed Act Apprentices, who appeared in the written examination, have qualified the same.

While AIRF has been persistently demanding their regularization without any written examination etc., but unfortunately, the same has still not acceded to, however, since most of the Course Completed Act Apprentices have though qualified the examination, they are now in upper age group, as such, subjecting them to PET on par with other candidates who have applied for employment under Open Market Recruitment Quota. It would not be justified, and in case anyone of them fails to meet the standard of PET, fixed for Open Market Recruitment, he/she would, ultimately, be deprived of regularization in the Railways, and the entire purpose shall be forfeited.

It is worth-mentioning here that, they have already undergone a number of Written/Physical Tests during the period of training as also medical examination at the time of their engagement for training.

Keeping in view the above position, AIRF is of the considered opinion that, those candidates who have qualified in the written examination under 20% quota, earmarked for regularization of the Course Completed Act Apprentices, should not be subjected to any PET, and they be regularized on the basis of written examination itself.

Copy to: General Secretaries, all affiliated zonal unions – for information.
