Sub: Selection of Medical De-categorized staff against 20% LDCE quota.
One of the Zonal Railways has sought clarification as to whether such medically de-categorized staff who are absorbed in alternate posts in the ministerial cadre, may be allowed to count their service in their previous unit prior to decategorization, towards eligibility for 20% LDCE in OS category.
- The matter has been examined in Board’s office in the light of provisions contained in para 1309 of IREM Vol. I., and it is clarified that earlier service rendered in the previous unit in the relevant scale (just prior to medical de-categorization) may be counted along with service in the alternative post towards eligibility for all departmental examinations including LDCE.
- This disposes off N. C. Railway’s letter No.797-E/NCR/JHS/05/20% LDCE dated 15.02.2023 cited above.
