Sub : Filling vacancies of Technicians III – Grade Pay Rs.1900/- in the Technical Departments through direct recruitment – Review of extant policy – urged.
At present 50% vacancies of Technicians III (GP Rs.1900/-) in certain technical departments are filled by direct recruitment of candidates who posses Matriculation or its equivalent.
NFIR desires to point out that the minimum educational qualification prescribed for recruitment to the post of lowest Grade Pay Rs.1800/- (PB-I) is also Matriculation or its equivalent. In view of this change in entry level recruitment and LDCE elements in the category of Technician III (Grade Pay of Rs.1900/-).
NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to review the extant recruitment procedure for classifying Technician Gr.III as promotion post to be filled only by those in GP Rs.1800/-. Pending final decision, the DR quota and LDCE vacancies of Technicians Gr.III be allowed to the filled by staff in Grade Pay of Rs.1800/-.
