Now, Southern Railway has notified  recruitment notification inviting application from hearing handicapped and ortho handicapped people for the post of station master and guard.

My question is  when already several Station masters and Guards were medically decategorised and made to work in humble posts because of  periodical medical examination,.

Can the Railways reconsider them for their parent category of SM/Guard?    Can the Railway ignore the hearing problem of an employee who holds sensitive post like stationmaster and guard?

  can any one from the recruitment cell of zonal railways explain?
