Transfer of Union Bearer after refusal of Promotion for 02 times

Submitted by rajini10 on Mon, 12/02/2018 - 10:47

Is there any provision prevailing in Indian Railway Promotion Rules which may enable administration to order for transfer of an union bearer after refusal of promotion for 02 times. However, provision is there to transfer out an employee in same grade to any station as per administrative requirement after refusal of promotion for 02 times vide Master Circular No. 24 but there is no provision indicated that an union bearer can also be treated in the same line of action.

if any Policy or letter supporting this issue please quote the reference number.

25% skilled selection post

Submitted by Megha on Sat, 11/07/2015 - 10:33

Dear sir,
I appeared the 25%quota for skilled exam in 2010 and stood first with 83+% among all. I have RTI document regarding this. But I wasn't given that post saying that I was junior than the people who appeared the aforeatated exam however I just read in this site that selection post is based on merit not seniority. So it was an injustice done to me. What can be done in this regard so that I can get justice and avoid this to happen to anyone else. Please guide.
