Respected Sir,

I got selected as a Goods Gourd but yet to join. I simply can not handle it's working condition. I want to change the post category.

Is it possible to change the category? Can I switch to other Office job post like Commercial department, Railway School etc? For your kind information I have required qualification as I am an M.Sc. & B.Ed. in Economics.

What procedure should one follow to change the category? Where one must write to sort out this problem?

There are various office job posts in Indian Railway. This problem can be solved easily.

Please write about it. Your information will be very valuable for me and also it will enhance my knowledge.
