Minimum educational qualifications for all Level I posts were class 10th or ITI or equivalent till July, 2017.
In July, 2017 for many of these Level I posts, criteria was changed to class 10th and ITI or equivalent.
This was not known the people in advance and was unfair to candidates who had been preparing over the past years for this recruitment.
Candidates would have got a chance to acquire the required certifications and qualifications had they been given adequate advance notice.
Therefore, it has now been decided that for this exam, criteria will be class 10th or ITI or equivalent, again. This will enable more candidates to apply for the posts and ensure wider participation. In addition, Railways has planned further training programmes to ensure better skills for staff.

Examination fees were levied to discourage non-serious candidates who applying and do not appear for the exam.
This would save the Railways substantial amount of resources spent on setting up infrastructure to enable candidates to appear for exams.
Examination fees for recruitment were fixed at Rs. 500/- for non-exempted candidates.
It is now decided that Rs. 400/- will be refunded to those candidates who appear for the exam. To enable refund of this amount, candidates will be required to submit details of their bank accounts online.
This facility will be executed shortly. Exempted categories like SC / ST / Divyang / Ex-servicemen / Women / Minorities / Economically Backward Classes will be charged Rs. 250/-. The whole of this amount will be refunded to those candidates from these categories who appear for the exam.
These fees will ensure only serious candidates appear.
