  • Railways jobs Recruitment for 9,500 posts to commence soon 50% seats reserved for women

The protest took place in the morning between the Matunga and Dadar stations to raise their demands. Up to 500 students came to join the protest from several surrounding states, they were all those who had done apprenticeships with the Indian railways.

Mumbai: After train services were affected due to students protesting on railway tracks, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis informed the legislative assembly that the railway administration has begun talks with the protesters, who are demanding railway jobs.

The protest by agitating students that crippled the suburban train services on the Central Railway in Mumbai this morning was called off following Railway Minister Piyush Goyal's intervention, officials said.

In a bid to bring the situation under control, the police resorted to mild lathi charge and the students pelted stones in retaliation. While this food bill policy will be applicable in all trains from March 31 this year, the Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has already started publicising this message through their ticket booking website. They have now called-off their rail-blockade agitation. "Apprentices can apply against this notification and Special Examination will shortly be held for apprentices who have done training in Railway Workshops under the Apprentices Act", the spokesperson said.
