Chapter II, B – Rules governing promotion of Group ‘C’ staff.
In respect of non-selection procedure the number of eligible staff called for consideration should be equal to the number of existing vacancies plus those anticipated during the next one year due to normal wastage (i.e. retirement/superannuation) likely acceptance of requests for voluntary retirement/ resignation, the vacancies is the higher grades in the channel, the filling up of which will result in the need to make consequent appointments from the proposed select list, staff approved to go on deputation to other units, staff already empanelled for ex-cadre posting, creation of additional posts already sanctioned by the competent authority and due to staff likely to go out on transfer to other Railways/Divisions.
For non-selection posts, suitability assessment should be held at the interval which should not be less than one year. All the eligible candidates as per their seniority including those who failed at the last test should be called. However, when the panel gets exhausted before on year, for any reason fresh assessment may be initiated, soon after exhausting the last panel. The period of one year is reckoned from the date of announcement of the result.
