Some of the Zonal Railways have sought clarifications as to (i) whether training period may be counted for reckoning of five years and (ii) whether, in addition to the four categories of employees who have been exempted from the 5-years restriction vide Board’s letter of even number dated 10.02.2017, an additional category of those suffering from chronic illnesses could also be added for this exemption.

It is clarified that training period, wherever prescribed, would also be counted while reckoning five years’ service in the Railway for becoming eligible for consideration towards inter Railway request transfer. As regards inclusion of additional category of employees for the purpose of exemption from the 5-years minimum completion rule, this has not been agreed to.
