Just having this Diploma wont take take you to officer post my friend. This can be an additional qualification if you clear the Group B officer exam and go to the interview. But for you to write to Officer exam first you have to be in GP 4200. Aim for that first.

If you are already in Engg dept this course give you a better  working knowledge and clearly this can help you in your career.

I've joined as SSE in MAS division after 8 years service as SM by RRB selection. But i've taken extra 4 days to join as SSE after technical resignation to old post. So these period is taken in which account, can i get joining time or not?

I am a sports person working in Railways, i request you to kindly provide any circular regarding half day spairing of sports person for practice.


With Regards
