Sub: Direct recruitment of Course Completed Act Apprentices (CCAAs) trained in Railway establishments in Level-1 (7th CPC pay matrix) posts – Procedure reg.
Pursuant to the grievances received from candidates who have applied in Centralised Employment Notification (CEN RRC-01/2019), Board had constituted a Committee which inter alia examined the concerns and suggestions of Course Completed Act Apprentices (CCAAs) also. Recommendations given by the Committee in respect of CCAAs have been accepted by the Competent Authority and the following decisions have been taken:
(i) The existing provision of 20% of reservation to the CCAA trained in Railway Establishments may be continued as it has been formulated in consonance with the amendment in Section 22 of the Apprentice Act.
(ii) In line with provisions contained under Section 22 of Apprentice Act, CCAAs trained in Railway Establishments may be given due weightage for the same such that one third of the marks in preparation of the final merit list after conduct of CBT shall be based on marks obtained in their NCVT examination. They shall, however. be eligible for empanelment only after document verification and qualifying medical standards for the post.
(iii) These candidates would be exempted from Physical Efficiency Test, since they have already been trained in Railway Establishments and have gone through the rigor of working in Railways and have proven themselves in respect of meeting physical standards required for performing job in Railways.
2. Board’s instructions contained in letter number E(NG)II/2016/RR-1/8 dated 21.06.2016 (RBE No.71/2016) stand modified to this extent.
3. Decisions at para | (ii) and 1(ili) will be effective from the date of issue of this letter and in cases where Computer Based Test (CBT) is yet to be conducted.
