Railway Board: Several Director level officers to be moved

By IndianMandarins- 21 Oct 2019


The NaMo Administration seems to be in the spree of pruning jobs at least in the Railways. Reportedly, it has decided to cut down staff strength of Railway Board from 200 to around 150.

Reportedly, review of deployment of railway staff is on the anvil. The Board wants to transfer five director-level officers and above to the zonal offices which the Railways claim a long pending move to enhance efficiency as there were too many officers within the railway board looking at the same thing. The officers will be sent to zones and division to help in the functioning of the zones. Sources said that transfers will be formalised in a month’s time. However a final decision is yet to be taken on how many officers will be transferred. However, these changes will not impact top-level functionaries in the board.

A committee constituted in 2015 under the chairmanship of Bibek Debroy recommended the restructuring of the Board. The railway ministry had in September 2014 constituted this eight-member committee for the mobilisation of resources for major railway projects and restructuring of the railways.
