Recruitment policy in Railways is unbiased and transparent, says Piyush Goyal

Almost 500 students from several states, who have done apprenticeship with the Indian Railways and want permanent jobs, came out and sat on railway tracks at about 6.45 AM.

Twenty per cent of all positions announced by the Railway Recruitment Control Board for various positions in the Indian Railways has been reserved for "Course Completed Act Apprentices". Along with demanding jobs in railways, they also claimed that they had even met the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, but no solution concerning their jobs could be reached.

Keeping in mind the growing pressure of the suburban traffic in Bengaluru, the railways have sanctioned a quadrupling project with a provision of two additional lines from Bengaluru Cantt to Whitefield at a cost of Rs 492.87 crore. Goyal has urged the agitating students to join the recruitment drive that ends on March 31.

The protesting students who have passed the Railway Act Apprentice exam were demanding removal of 20 per cent upper limit in the hiring of candidates.

Burmese transport minister Thant Sin Maung said that he hoped the two countries could build on their cooperation and aimed to accept an offer from Indian Railways for signalling and telecommunication training.

A senior railway official, requesting anonymity, said, "There were very few students among the protesters".

Fadnavis said that the reservations for apprentices in the railways have been raised from 10 to 20 percent. Local commuters found it hard with the protests going.

Fadnavis's statement comes after the agitated railway job aspirants staged a rail blockade in Mumbai demanding job in the railway sector. Instead, they were lathi-charged in which the youth were injured. Many become apprentices with the sole aim of joining the Railways and if in such a case they are not given that chance or opportunity it's bound to create tension.
