References have been received from some Zonal Railways and employees’ Federations seeking clarification on procedure to be followed in cases where PET had been completed or was under process for the retirement/recruitment cycle of July – December 2011. Board has considered the issue and in order to streamline the procedure in regard to retirement/recruitment cycle of July – December 2011 under LARSGESS has taken the following decisions;-
I. Those Railways who have declared results whether based on PET or without considering result of PET, should treat the result as final.
ii. Those Railways who have conducted PET but are yet to publish the panel, should finalize the panel based on the PET result.
iii. Those who have not yet held PET or have only Scheduled PET, should cancel the PET and declare the result based on written examination only.
iv. Those candidates who have failed PET and are declared/to be declared as failed, may be given another chance in January-June 2012 cycle where PET has already been dispensed with. However, such relaxation in eligibility, if any, will be given by Board.
