Attention is invited to the condition as laid down in Board’s letter under reference regarding completion of minimum 5 ( five) years service ( including training period) for considering the inter-Railway request transfers in respect of non-gazetted employees working on Zonal Railways/Production Units.
The matter has been reviewed and Board has decided that –
a) This minimum service condition will not be applied in case of mutual transfers, request transfers of compassionate appointees, and in those cases where transfer is sought on the ground of employee’s spouse working in Central/State Government;
b) In case of Group ‘D’ employees, the minimum service condition stands reduced from 5 ( five) to 3 ( three) years;
c) On the lines of putting up inter-division and intra-division transfer requests on Railnet as already instructed vide Board’s letter under reference, Zonal Railways/PUs should also upload registered inter-Railway transfer requests on Railnet.
The instructions contained in Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2001/TR/16 dated 21st November, 2001 regarding prevention of fraudulent transfers should be scrupulously followed as earlier.
