    @pranavmodak Traffic Apprentice is good job . After 2 years of training you become Station Controller/Yard Master / Station controller .
    Initially you are posted at small stations with little amenities.
    It said that Post of station controller is very stressful.

    Anyways after CA , Second preference should be Trafic Apprentice for pay band reasons

    Other posts are too low for a UPSC aspirant as we deserve better.

    Any ways in case of Good Guards, Initially you are posted in Mail Trains for 5 years then Passenger Trains after that Express Trains.
    In case of Good Guard ,There is a running allowance paid to good guard . In mail trains , sometimes a simple chair and bulb is missing .
    Regarding , applying from other RRB . If you apply for 2 RRBs , they may bar you from future examination .
    In any case ,if I remember correctly you won't be able to apply last year I tried to apply again to change my RRB in case of JE/SSE-2015 exam. I was not able to do so as they said I had already applied for another RRB. Not sure about this year though.


    For UPSC, I guess CA is best.
  • @manoj07 Any idea abt CA job profile and work load ??

    After 2 years training they are posted normally as Chief Commercial/Parcel/Goods Clerk
    Next promotion will be to Parcel/Goods supervisor in GP 4600.

    Errata

    After 2 year training, TA is posted as Section Controller / yard master /station master.
  • @manoj07 and i hope work pressure won't be much in CA as compared to TA, wrt civils prep ??
  • thanks guys...actually i am from mp and there is no post of CA in bhopal RRB that's why the problem. Well lets give the exam first and will decide after the result in case i get selected. Thanks for the quick reply @manoj07 .Also any time frame for the final results in case the exam happens in, lets say, april.

    On FB ,in SSC CGL group , a gentleman who himself was CA , asked all to prefer CA as it is better.From all other options in this recruitment CA is better. If you are willing to compromise with pay band you may consider senior clerk or JAA as they carry least chance of field posting .

    However , you should apply for CA and other posts.
  • so basically joining as a ta is a bad decision...oh god lets see

    @pranavmodak Regarding result and final appointment , according to previous precedent , Railway usually take 18 months or more for whole process to complete.

    For example in case of JE /SSE-2014 we had written on 21/12/2014. Written test result in February 2015. Document verification in March 2015. after that Final result for JE was declared in around July ( I guess , unable to recall ). Final result for SSE on 20 Oct 2015. We are yet to undergo medical and all . This is the case with RRB Chandigarh which is relatively better as compared to other RRBs.
    RRB Ajmer result declared now and they are having document verification from 19 Jan 2016. So , result and all depend upon RRB.

    But please apply , if you get a job it is good at least you will be free mind.

    BTW in RRB Chandigarh also there is no post of CA.
