Sub: Increasing promotion quota percentage for Technician-III posts in Diesel/Electric Loco/EMU Sheds in Indian Railways.

In terms of instructions contained in Railway Boards’ letter of even number dated 18.12.2015 and Note 2 below Para 159(1) of Indian Railway Establishment Manual, Vol. I, the posts of Technician-III in the Diesel/Electric Loco/EMU Sheds
are filled in as under:-

(i) 50% plus shortfall, if any, against LDCE quota as at (ii) below by selection from Course Completed Act Apprentices, and ITI passed candidates in relevant trades from the open market; serving employees who are ‘course completed Act Apprentices’ or ITI qualified could be considered against this quota allowing age relaxation as applicable to serving employees; and
(ii) 25% from serving semi-skilled and unskilled staff with educational qualification as laid down in Apprentices Act; and

2. Consequent to demand raised by both the recognized Federations i.e. AIRF and NFIR in the PNM, for increasing the promotion quota from 25% to 50% to bring it at par with the provision for Technician-III in the various Engineering
Departments, the matter has been examined by the Board, keeping in view the justification put forth by the Federations. It has been decided that henceforth posts of Technician-III in Diesel/Electric Loco/EMU Sheds may be filled as under:-

serving employees; and

(iii) 50% by promotion of staff in the lower grade as per prescribed procedure.

Sub: Increasing Promotion Quota percentage for Technician III posts in Diesel/Electric Loco/EMU Sheds on Indian Railways

Ref.: AIRF’s letter No.AIRF/53(587) dated 05.04.2016

As per Railway Board’s letter No.E(NG)I-2014/PM7/1 dated 14.01.2016 (RBE No.07/2016), the procedure prescribed for Diesel/Electric Loco/EMU Sheds to fill-up the posts of Technician III, amending para 159 of the IREM Volume I, 2009 (Reprint Edition), has been modified as under:-

(i) 50% plus shortfall, if any, against LDCE Quota as at (ii) below by selection from Course Completed Act Apprentices, and ITI passed candidates in relevant trades from the open market; serving employees who are “Course Completed Act Apprentices” or ITI qualified could be considered against this quota allowing age relaxation as applicable to serving employees; and

(ii) 25% from serving semi-skilled and unskilled staff with educational qualification as laid down in Apprentices Act; and

(iii) 25% by promotion of staff in the lower grade as per prescribed procedure.

As a number of qualified staff are being recruited in Grade Pay of Rs.1800 as Helper in Diesel/Electric Loco/EMU Sheds, sufficient number of candidates, who are in possession of higher academic qualification, are awaiting promotion to the category of Technician III although they do possess the qualification prescribed for open market recruitment in the category of Technician III.

AIRF, therefore, desires that, the percentage prescribed for open market recruitment, normal promotion and promotion against Talented Quota be revised as under:-

(i) 35% plus shortfall, if any, against LDCE Quota as at (ii) below by selection from Course Completed Act Apprentices, and ITI passed candidates in relevant trades from the open market; serving employees who are “Course Completed Act Apprentices” or ITI qualified could be considered against this quota allowing age relaxation as applicable to serving employees; and

(ii) 25% from serving semi-skilled and unskilled staff with educational qualification as laid down in Apprentices Act; and

(iii) 40% by promotion of staff in the lower grade as per prescribed procedure.

and orders to this effect be issued with consequential amendment in para 159 of the IREM, Volume I, 2009 (Reprint Edition) at an early date.
