Railway Jobs – Getting your career on the right track
Railways can be attributed to the success of the humankind. Quite evidently, railways are considered to be the symbol of progress and development, after all, the industrial era caught pace because of this machine transporting heavy goods from one place to another at breakneck speeds in times when it was considered unimaginable.
Established by the British when India was under the British Raj, the Railways have branched much more and connect even the most inaccessible parts of the country.
The Indian Railway branches over 60,000 kilometres, with over 8000 stations with over 1 lakh kilometres of tracks laid down. This makes Indian railways the most elaborate railway networks around the world.
Another interesting fact here would be that the Indian Railway holds the record for employing the most number of people by any government institution anywhere around the world. Which makes sense, as maintaining the lifeline of the Indian Economy would require as many hands on deck as possible.
Top recruiters in the railway sector
Essentially, the railway recruitment is the fundamental duty of the Railway Recruitment Control Board. All recruitments all over the country are looked after by this department.
This department was set up by the Ministry of Railways in 1998.
To decentralise the process, the Railway Recruitment Boards have organisations set up under the Government of India. These are called boards and till date there are 21 boards situated in different parts of India.

Some of the most commonly known job prospects in the Railway sector are Service Officers, Electrical Engineers, Mechanical Engineers, Store service, Account service, Signal Engineers and Railway Protection Force too.
If you are someone with a medical degree, you can also enrol yourself for the IRMS Medical Service. Mechanical engineers also can find a spot for themselves when it comes to constructing new railway stations and planning new track routes, bridges, tunnels, etc.

For Technical positions, a bachelor’s degree in Engineering or MSc in Wireless Communication, Electronics, Radio, Physics or Radio Engineering should do. Age limit for these positions would also be from 21 to 32 years.
