About Us:

  • Ministry of Railways (Railway Board) vide their Letter No. E(NG)-II/96/RR-1/62 dated 18.07.2005 have delegated the powers of recruitment to Group ‘D’ posts to the General Managers. In pursuance to this, Railway Recruitment Cell was opened in Western Railway.

  • The Cell undertakes the recruitment for Group ‘D’ vacancies in Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Ratlam, Bhavnagar, Vadodra Divisions, workshops and extra divisional units in the territorial jurisdiction of Western Railway.
  • In 1942, a Service Commission with a Chairman and two members was established for the recruitment of Subordinate Staff on the then North West Railway was known as Railway Service Commission.
  • In 1945, the Services Commissions were set up at Bombay, Calcutta, Madras, and Lucknow. In 1948, the Indian Railway Enquiry Committee reviewed the working of commissions. In 1949, due to financial constraints, a ban was imposed on recruitments on Indian Railways thus numbers of commissions were reduced to one centrally located at Bombay. In 1953-54 when the Economic conditions of the Indian Railway improved, four service commissions were again set up at Bombay, Madras, Allahabad, and Calcutta. In 1956, the Estimates committee generally approved the method of recruitment by the constitution of the Railway Service Commissions. In 1983, to cater to the needs of areas that were being neglected due to locations of the existing commissions, seven more commissions were set up viz, at Ahmedabad, Ajmer, Bhopal, Bhuvneshwar, Chandigarh, Jammu and Srinagar with sitting at Leh and Trivendrum. In 1984 two more service commissions were set up at Malda and Gorakhpur. In January 1985 Railway Service Commissions have been renamed as Railway Recruitment Board (RRB). At present 21 Railway Recruitment Boards are functioning.
