The following is an extract from Indian Railway Establishment Manual :
"Railway employees may be given 4 opportunities in a year to apply in response to notices of Government Departments/Public Sector Undertakings/autonomous bodies wholly or substantially financed and controlled by Central or State Government except where holding of any such applications is considered justified in the public interest by the competent authority. Applications in response to UPSC advertisement will not be counted against the four opportunities mentioned above. "
(Rule 1401 of IREM Vol I )
The process of appointment can take many months. So it is better that you start the process. If you have to leave you have to pay back the stipend you received during training. Since it will take some months before you join, safely you can join and leave without problems.
