  1. In the present scenario we have seen that it is really difficult for an engineer to work properly given the kind of political pressure he has to face. I would like to know whether an honest engineer can work without facing any kind of pressure from higher authorities who are indulging in malpractices.

    1. In Indian Railways, engineering department is independent of political pressure. Even if there is any interference it is at the level of DRM or GM. If you are an honest person than nobody can stop you from doing your work. Unlike civil services, there is negligible political interference in day to day working of Indian railways.

  2. But isn’t it like all the group A posts have the same sallary ? How can it be less for Indian naval stores officer? How much will be the pay?

  3. Sir

    For ESE-2014, Medical tests are conducted after the interview process itself for all the written qualified candidates it seems, which is quite new this time… Generally medical tests for final selected candidates would be conducted.

  4. sir i have a query, is there any service in Indian engineering service in which you can get posted in Delhi? Do you know any details about Indian telecommunication service and central power engineering service? please help.

    1. Indian engineering services are central services so there is no guarantee that you will be posted in Delhi only. You should be ready to work anywhere in India. However cpwd/water comission/cpes/its may give you posting in good cities.

    1. Joining time for the service can very from 6 months to a year after the declaration of results but this is going to change shortly. All services may have almost same time of joining.
