what is the promotion time period for the promotion from JE to SE  and SE to SSE ..  is there any exams  to get  promotions  or it will be based on seniority.

SE and SSE is now merged. That means a person promotes directly from JE to SSE.  This promotion is normally seniority-cum-suitability basis. That means Promotion will be based on seniority, but among those who qualify a written selection exam.

Whenever application for departmental exams are called intimation will come to your station. Apply then and prepare well for the exam.

As you have BA you can apply for ASM, Goods Guard etc.
