ADVANCE CORRECTION SLIP NO. 259

Chapter II, B – Rules governing promotion of Group ‘C’ staff.

Para 214(c)(ii)

In respect of non-selection procedure the number of eligible staff called
for consideration should be equal to the number of existing vacancies plus
those anticipated during the next one year due to normal wastage (i.e.
retirement/ superannuation) likely acceptance of requests for voluntary
retirement/resignation, the vacancies in the higher grades in the channel,
the filling up of which will result in the need to make consequent
appointments from the proposed select list, staff approved to go on
deputation to other units, staff already empanelled for ex-cadre posting,
creation of additional posts already sanctioned by the competent authority
and due to staff likely to go out on transfer to other Railways/Divisions.

Para 214(c)(v)

For non-selection posts, suitability assessment should be held at the
interval which should not be less than one year. All the eligible
candidates as per their seniority including those who failed at the last
test should be called. However, when the panel gets exhausted before one
year, for any reason, fresh assessment may be initiated, soon after
exhausting the last panel. The period of one year is reckoned from the date
of announcement of the result.
