Gross and Net Salary of Some Popular categories of Railway Jobs

Printer-friendly version

Approximate Gross and Net Salary of Some Popular categories of Railway Jobs  after the implementation of 6 th Central Pay commission for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006.

Please keep in mind that the exact salary can be different from this as it depends on many conditions. Some of the factors that you have to keep in mind while reading the table ::

  • The current Rate of DA is 80% from Jan 2013 and it changes every six months. 
  • Salary after 1 year – this will be the salary on 1st July after completion of training period (with one annual increment).  As a rule of thumb it is assumed that the DA will go up by 12% in one year for the calculation.
  • During training no allowances except DA is paid.
  • HRA is calculated for ordinary cities(10%). It can be 20% or 30% depending on the city. It is same for Transport Allowance.

  • There are other allowances like TA which depends on your post.

dear sir,

     i have appeared in rrb se 3 time but my hard luck i didn't succeed. can u suggest regarding preparation .and can u tell me that what is cutoff marks go for se in general.it may be vary ..but on average what is cutoff marks....

Aboslutely unpredictable

Aboslutely unpredictable regarding the marks to be scored. Because it dependns on the relative performance.

If there are 10 posts, and in a particular exam the all the persons score only below 60%, the best of the 10 will be selected.

And if another exam everybody score more than 80% then also best 10 will be selected.

That is it depends not only how much you score, but also how much others score.

For books try books available in Flipkart. No book can guarantee a pass in exam.
