Students protest for permanent jobs in the Railways, Fadnavis holds talks

RRB Recruitment 2018 20% vacancies reserved for 'Course Completed Act Apprentices’ informs Railway Minister Piyush Goyal

Making a statement in the house, Mr Fadnavis said railways have increased the reservation for apprentices from 10 per cent to 20 per cent. The protesting students pelted stones in retaliation. The protesters allegedly also threw stones at the local trains.

The protests were carried out by activists of the All India Act Apprentice Association (AAAAA). He added, "The Railways have already reserved 20 per cent posts under Course Completed Act Apprentices".

With the strike by the drivers of app-based taxis on Monday, more than 4.5 million commuters had to face problems for the second consecutive day.

At least five persons and a couple of police personnel were injured in the fracas even as top police and railway officials rushed to the site to control the situation.

For almost three hours, the services were severely disrupted as the protestors squatted and laid on the railway tracks between Matunga and Dadar on the CR. The issue for the apprentices is the sheer proportion of apprentices to the number of openings. Everything is online. Lately, RRB has extended the last date of online application to March 31 for over 1 lakh vacancies in various Railway posts, so that candidates who have failed to submit application due to various reasons can participate in the recruitment process. "Apprentices can apply against this notification and Special Examination will shortly be held for apprentices who have done training in Railway Workshops under the Apprentices Act", the spokesperson said.

"On directives of Supreme Court, Indian Railways has made a recruitment policy that is unbiased and transparent", Goyal said further. The decision has been taken by Railway Minister Piyush Mishra to ensure that railway passengers start asking for bills for the food that they buy on their respective journeys, thus ensuring that they are not overcharged. "We have readied 120 officials to man the trains and in some time we are going to put in place more people on inspection duty to gradually man every train during food service time".
