RRB NTPC Vacancy Decreased: Railway Revised Guard, Clerk Posts

RRB NTPC Vacancy Decreased – Railway to Reduced RRB NTPC 03/2015 Vacancies of Goods Guard, CA/ TA, Sr Clerk & JAA posts. Another sad news for RRB NTPC aspirants who are currently waiting for 2nd Stage Mains exam result. The Railway Recruitment Boards (RRBs) have decided to revise vacancies notified through CEN 03/2015. There is even good chances of decrease in total number of vacancies in each Railway Board.

Update: RRBs have finally revised its NTPC vacancies notified in CEN 03/2015. Total Vacancy is now 14,023, they have reduced around 90% Clerical Posts.  

Railway is planning to decrease RRB NTPC vacancy while aspirants are expecting for increase in vacancy. This is really bad for many candidates who are hoping for their result in RRB NTPC 2017 exam. Details are provided below...
Why Decrease in RRB NTPC 03/2015 Vacancies?

As you all know, Railway Administration has proposed to reduce RRB NTPC Vacancies by 20% including abolishment of Clerical posts i.e. ECRC, Senior Clerk and JAA. Here are some reason, why Railway has decided to reduce NTPC vacancies against RRB CEN 03/2015.


50% Vacancies through GDCE Quota

Increasing Non-Technical Graduate vacancies through GDCE Quota from 25% to 50% is only biggest reason to reduce RRB NTPC 03/2015 vacancy. Let's have a look at the recruitment rule of NTPC Graduate vacancies for filling up Station Master, Goods Guard, Commercial/ Traffic Apprentice (CA & TA), ECRC, Senior Clerk, Junior Accounts Assistant (JAA) posts.

1. 15% by Limited Departmental Competitive Examination (LDCE) from amongst group C & D  staff of Operating and Commercial departments.
2. 50% (Earlier 25% only) by General Departmental Competitive Examination (GDCE) from amongst group C & D  staff of Operating and Commercial departments.
3. Only 35% of vacancies through Open Recruitment.

Here you can see, now Indian Railway has 65% vacancies for department examination and only 35% vacancies left to be filled by NTPC direct recruitment through Railway Recruitment Boards (RRB). Increasing GDCE vacancies quota from 25% to 50% is worst decision taken by Railway Board from RRB NTPC candidates' points of view.

Apparently, 25% decrease in Railway Non-Technical (NTPC) open recruitment leads to decrease in RRB NTPC Vacancies against RRB CEN 03/2015.

Removal of Clerk Posts from Open Recruitment

Railway is planning to remove Clerical posts from open direct recruitment through Non Technical category. Post of Senior Clerk, Junior Accounts Assistant (JAA) & Enquiry-cum-Reservation Clerk (ECRC) are going to be reserved for Departmental Examination (GDCE & LDCE), As a Compassion and Medically Unfit employees only.

As you know, Railway generally used to have less number of clerical posts then posts in Safety department. They have also increased GDCE quota from 25% to 50%. Obviously, they will have now very few clerical posts to recruit through Open vacancies which Railway is planning to nullify.

Burden of 7th Pay Commission

What I think about pointing 7th CPC, this is just another excuse by Railway Administration rather than any valid reason. With the name of 7th pay commission & increase in bonus, they are making only excuses. This can't be a valid reason, almost all department in India have affected by 7th Pay commission. So it doesn't make sense by pointing this as reason to reduce RRB NTPC vacancy.

Railway RRB NTPC Revised Vacancy

This is quite some tragedy for those candidates waiting for RRB NTPC Final Result. While candidates were hoping for increase in total vacancy announced for Railway Non-Technical (NTPC) Graduate posts, RRB turns evil and decreased the number of vacancies in many Railway Boards. It is also been expected that they are going to revise RRB NTPC Total Vacancy notified against CEN 03/2015. RRB may decrease their vacancy which will be even less than 18252 posts. So I expect a very difficult situation for all aspirants. RRB NTPC Cut-off also might breach 80-90 at this rate.

This is what Railway Officials are saying on RRB NTPC Revised Vacancy.
Vacancies through RRB NTPC 03/2015 has been revised due to huge burden on Indian Railways after implementation of 7th CPC.

The proposals from various RRBs were to enhancement/ clubbing/ reduction of vacancies in CEN 03/2015, for which Railway Board has not agreed to any increase in vacancy.
However, proposals of reduction in notified vacancies received from Railways have been accepted.
Note: Not a good news again for fellow RRB NTPC Aspirants, What we have been saying to you candidates since few weeks, became true now. The document posted here clearly suggests, it was a proposal to reduce Goods Guard vacancy and to abolish all clerical posts against RRB CEN 03/2015. Check out the Revised Vacancy list.
