Railway Board have issued instructions from time to time for grant of relaxation in qualifying marks in promotional category posts in favour of SCs/STs.
Ministry of Railways after careful consideration have decided that relaxations in qualifying marks stand withdrawn from the date of issue of this letter. it is emphasized for clarity that the withdrawal is for relaxations in qualifying marks only. Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes continue to be judged by excluding the seniority marks wherever they are required to be taken into consideration both in Safety and non-safety category posts.
Selections which are already finalised on the basis of earlier instructions will not be required to be reviewed or revised. However, selections which are under process of finalisation will be finalised as per revised instructions.
