In a massive recruitment drive, the Indian Railways will hand over nearly 50,000 appointment letters in the Rozgar Mela in early April, to those who have qualified for railway jobs in various categories.
The Railways will organise Rozgar Mela at 50 places across the country where appointment letters for the post of track maintainer, helper, pointsman, welder, and commercial clerk among others would be handed over to the selected persons in Group C, including Level-1 category.
Currently, the recruitment process for 103,769 vacancies in Level-1 is underway for which appointment letters are being issued.
The Railways has vacancies of 2,885 gazetted posts and 312,895 in the non-gazetted category as on February this year.
"We are nearing the completion stage for the recruitment of commercial clerks and gangmen among others," said a senior Railway Ministry official.
There was a massive rush of applicants, as over one crore applications were received for Level-1 category jobs.
There are 719,556 post graduates, 3,925,822 graduates including B-Tech, 5,910,255 matriculates and 598,855 ITI diploma holders among the 1.1 crore candidates who became eligible to appear for the test for gangmen jobs, the Level-1 post in Indian Railways.
The recruitment examinations were conducted all over the country in five phases.
The minimum qualification for the Level-1 post is completion of Class X and the computer based test is the first stage after which the shortlisted candidates would appear for medical tests, only before the final selection.
