The RRB had made a number of changes in recent job advertisements. They removed the provision of minimum educational qualification for a number of jobs on compassionate grounds to the kin of employees, who died while on the job or retired because of medical reasons. Currently, the least minimum educational qualification required for such posts is Class 10 for Level-1 or Group ‘D’ jobs.
