4,000 AP youth to get rail jobs

With the changes in the recruitment policy of the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB), as announced in the Rail Budget 2010, hundreds of unemployed youth are likely to get jobs in Andhra Pradesh itself.
As many as 4,000 posts, which are lying vacant in the South Central Railway (SCR), are likely to be filled by candidates from the state.
So far, AP candidates have not been allowed to sit for the RRB exams in Bhubaneswar, Kolkata, Mumbai and other places because applicants from those states have not allowed it. They have threatened and harassed AP candidates, and the police of the concerned states have generally been of little help. Candidates from other states, however, come to Hyderabad and sit the exams for vacant posts in the SCR without being threatened in any way.
The railway ministry has now proposed to conduct the examinations on the same day in all regions.
Candidates can, therefore, choose only one place from which to write the exam whereas earlier, when exams were conducted on different days in different places, a candidate could sit for several exams. The railway board has also waived the examination fee for women, minorities and economically backward class candidates.
The AP Backward Classes Welfare Association president, Mr R. Krishnaiah, welcomed the decisions.
“In the old system, candidates used to appear for multiple RRB exams and were often selected from different regions. However, they could opt for only one region, resulting in backlog vacancies in other regions. In the new method, there is no chance for backlog.”
