Those who student qualifies the selection score in the preliminary test they enter for the next phase of examination like main or, interview examination. In this phase of examination number of students become shorter than preliminary test because some student eliminated in PT exam. As per the RRB marking norm, those who examinee qualify the main and interview phase of examination they get selected for railway staff at the different –different railway offices and after sometime new selected staff is trained for required railway work for which they have selected by expert in that field. After getting training newcomer staff work properly as like old staff in the railway offices.
