In the context of the aforesaid guidelines, one of the Zonal Railways has sought the following clarifications:-

(c) Clarification on the criteria of drawing final panel may be given duly indicating the weightage/ marks to be given for service record viz. Service Register, Qualifications APARs etc.

The matter has been examined and it is clarified that on the analogy of provisions contained in Para 219(j)(ii) and (iit) of IREM Vol.I, all those candidates who score not less than 60% marks in the written test (professional ability), should be called for class room lecture trial, and the final panel should be drawn in the order of seniority from amongst those who secure a minimum of 60% marks in the professional ability and 60% marks tn the aggregate.

As regards the allotment of marks under the heads “Written Test” and “Classroom lecture trial” in the instructions dated 13.05.2019 ibid, which is a deviation from the IREM provisions, it is clarified that it was a conscious decision taken by the Board (MS), and hence there is no need for review in this regard.
