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

In term 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

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

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 ring 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:-

(i) 25% 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) 50% by promotion of staff in the lower grade as per prescribed procedure.

3. Para 159(1) of Indian Railway Establishment Manual, Vol.I, 2009 (reprint edition) accordingly stands amended as per ACS No. 267 enclosed herewith.
