Reading Time:

I am selected as JE in railway under GDCE quota vacancy and after completion of training 22-10-2020 join on regular post. Whereas promotional quota JE selected on 28-08-2020 and given higher responsibility from 28-8-2020 then sent them for 3 month promotional training. My seniority is assigned from the date of completion of training whereas promotional quota JE seniority is assigned from the date of beginning of training. So who will be the senior?

Question from: West Bengal

In your case the candidates promoted through departmental process i.e. DPC will have seniority over the candidates of direction selection. The inter-se seniority of a officer promoted on the basis of the recommendation of a DPC either by selection or non-selection method as per due procedure, shall be determined as in the feeder grade from which they are promoted.

Feeder grade candidates get seniority over the direction selection if both have been selected in the same year. If feeder grade candidates hold the post in subsequent to the direct candidates then the candidate selection through direct recruitment will have seniority.
