Jun 20 2018 (12:37)   Move to wind up Thiruvananthapuram RRB - KERALA - The Hindu
Entry# 3552944   News Entry# 342029         Tags   Past Edits
Railways have begun moves to wind up the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB), Thiruvananthapuram, and shifted the post of the Chairman of RRB to the Railway Board, New Delhi.
As there is no Member Secretary for the RRB, Thiruvananthapuram, the shifting of the post has made the RRB based here headless.
The IRTS officer from Kerala who was heading the RRB has been served orders to report to the Railway Board.
up in 1984
The RRB, Thiruvananthapuram, set up in 1984, had been conducting recruitments to various posts of subordinate services in Railways. As many as 20 lakh candidates had appeared for the examination held last by the RRB.
The centres of the RRB in the districts had helped the candidates as they need not have to go to other States.
Railway sources toldThe Hinduthat the 18 employees in the RRB would be gradually shifted to their parent department to close down the RRB. The candidates from the State will have to go to other States to write the examinations as centres here will be limited.
“The RRB here has been singled out and the intentions of Railways are clear,” the sources said.
Letter to Modi
The move was part of the aim to shift the RRB at Thiruvananthapuram to Chennai gradually and it was the latest example of Railways’ ongoing neglect to Kerala, Minister for Public Works and Railways G. Sudhakaran said in a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Railway Minister Piysuh Goyal on Tuesday.
Job hopes hit
The Minister said the decision would affect hundreds of youth who sought employment in Railways from the State as the RRB made arrangements for the candidates to write examinations here.
Mr. Sudhakaran urged the Prime Minister and the Railway Minister to restore the post of the Chairman.
Move is the latest example of Railways’ ongoing neglect to Kerala
