Sub:- Procedure for selection for promotion from GP Rs.1800 to GP Rs.1900 against departmental promotion quota.

In terms of the extant provisions as contained in para 189 of Indian Ralway Establishment Manual (IREM), Vol, (Revised Edition-1989), First Re Print-2009, 33-1/3% quota of posts in the lowest grade of Commercial Clerks, Ticket Collectors, Trains Clerks, Office Clerks and other categories of Clerks like Store Clerks etc, are to be earmarked for promotion of Railway servants in the categories carrying Grade Pay of Rs 1800,  for whom no regular avenue of promotion exists; the Group “C” categories being suitably linked with specified categories in Grade Pay of Rs,1800 on the basis of broad affinity of work.

It has been noticed that a few Railways are adopting different eligibility -criteria and are allowing Trackmen to appear in the selection being conducted against 33-1/3% departmental promotion quota which is not consistent with the extant policy as Trackman/Gateman/Trollyman have separate avenue channel of promotion as per para 181 of IREM ibid. The issue reached upto Central Vigilance Commission(CVC) who, in turn has desired that guidelines may be issued to all Zonal Railways regarding uniform interpretation of Para 181 to 189 of IREM and related instruction is thereon.
3. ln the light of the above, the matter has been considered.  Ministry of Railways wish to state that the extant provisions contained in para 181 to 189 of IREM, Vol. I, (Revised Edition-1989), First Re-Print Edition-2009 and subsequent instruction issued thereon may be followed scrupulously and only eligible categories as specified may be allowed to appear in the selections being conducted for promotion from GP Rs.1800 to GP Rs.1900 against 33-1/3% departmental promotion quota,

Please acknowledge receipt.
