The General Secretary,
3, Chelmsford Road,
Sub: Induction of Female employees in Railway and other Central Government Departments – reg.
The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR’s letter No. II/1/2019 dated 29.01.2019 on the above subject and to state that there is no ban in place against recruitment of female candidates to Track Maintainers Category though admittedly the nature of the job and working conditions are strenuous/tough. Notifications for Level-1 recruitment are underway in which a significant portion is for Track Maintainers. With finalization of above 2 recruitments ( CEN 02/2018 & CEN1/RRC/2019), position should ease and transfers of eligible Trackmen to other department as provided for in rules should be able to be effected without problems.
It is hoped that the Federation would appreciate the position.
For Secretary, Railway Board.
