To get a job, graduates and post-graduates in science, arts, commerce, management as well as engineers comprised of 82 lakh candidates applied for the lowest posts in the Railway hierarchy – which includes the post of track-men, Khalasi, or helpers against the 62,907 available posts, reports The Wire.

While two crore applications were received by the Railway Recruitment Board (RRB) for these jobs which are referred Level-1 or Group D category in Railways, only 1,88,721 candidates were called for a physical efficiency test. The process of applying for these posts started in mid-2018, and as of now, the RRB is underway with the process of document verification and medical test for selected 75,485 candidates.

Due to the plethora of applications last year, the RRB took a considerable amount of time to review them, and it is finally in a position to start the final call. According to The Wire report, successful candidates are anticipated to receive appointment letters for Group D jobs by the end of May this year.

The minimum educational qualification required for applying for these jobs is class 10 pass, and a certificate from the National Council on Vocational Training or Industrial Training Institutes, or have a National Apprenticeship Certificate.


Distinction Based on Merits

The data obtained by The Wire distinguishing the candidates based on their merit is appaling. It mentioned that 4,19,137 candidates hold BTech degrees and 40,751 applicants with a post-graduate degree in engineering. Apart from engineers, 19.1 lakh applicants are arts graduates, 3.83 lakh are post-graduates in arts, 9.57 lakh are science graduates, and 1,27,018 are post-graduates in science.

The above figures display the lack of jobs available in the country. Well-educated young minds are forced to apply for jobs that require less education then what they already have. Inadequate quality of jobs is decimating these graduates talents.
