Ref: GM/ECR’s DO letter No. ECR/ADM/SEC/MECH/2019 dated 23.01.2019.
A reference was received from General Manager, East Central Railway seeking approval for hiring of ex-Army personnel as AC coach attendants.
The issue has been deliberated upon and the Board (MS, FC & CRB) has approved the following:
- The issue is of hiring through contract of ex-Armymen for ACCA. Zonal Railways can do the same by framing the contract conditions accordingly. There is no specific need for approval of Railway Board for this.
- This can be done where the posts are vacant against sanctioned strength only. This issues with the concurrence of the Associate Finance of the Transformation Cell.
