After Fin Min objection, Railways stops officers' promotion

The Railway Ministry has stopped promotion of officers in two of its secretarial services after alleged irregularities were pointed out by the Finance Ministry. A scam had come to light in two lesser-known services – Railway Board Secretariat Service (RBSS) and Railway Board Secretariat Clerical Service (RBSCS) – where promotions were being made allegedly without following due procedures and bypassing Union Cabinet’s jurisdiction. Terming it as a “serious lapse”, the Finance Ministry had written to Railways to “revoke” its decision for promoting these officials through cadre restructuring. Following this, Railways decided to stop the whole exercise.
