Over 3 lakh candidates have been recruited for various Group 'C' posts in the Indian Railways in the last five years, revealed Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw in a recent statement. Highlighting the ongoing efforts to address personnel shortages, he also announced the completion of two major exams to fill an additional 1.39 lakh vacancies.
The Indian Railways, with its vast network and critical role in national transportation, requires a strong workforce. Recognizing this, the department actively fills vacancies through a continuous process. Vaishnaw explained that recruitment primarily occurs through collaboration with agencies, but additional positions are filled directly when necessary.
The Minister further emphasized the importance of effective manpower planning. To ensure optimal utilization of its human resources, the Railways regularly conducts work studies across various operations. This data-driven approach helps in deploying personnel efficiently and productively.
This signifies the Indian Railways' commitment to bridging personnel gaps and maintaining a robust workforce. With ongoing recruitment efforts and strategic manpower planning, the department aims to deliver efficient and smooth services across its vast network.
