Job opportunities in Rail Transport – Assistant Loco Pilot

By on September 14, 2013

Assistant Loco Pilot is the most important Group C category of staff, of which 80% vacancies are filled up directly through Railway Recruitment Board. This group of staff consisting of Loco Pilot and Guard is called Running staff. Loco Pilots are also the forefront staff of the Railways. The average salary of running staff is much more as compared to non-running category of staff.

The average salary earned by a Railway employee of group C and D category based on the Indian Railway Book published by Ministry of Railways during the year has been as given in the table. It may be seen that the average salary is more than the supervisory category, and therefore, certainly attracts everyone towards this profession.

Category of staff Year 2012-13
Group D 3,85,254
Group C Artisan 4,83,057
Group C Supervisor 5,18,996
Group C Running 7,19,001

There are about 15000 vacancies per year for which RRB conducts examination every year. There is no ban for creation of Loco Running staff, which depends in direct relation to the average number of passenger and freight trains run in the Railways. The number of trains is always on the rise and therefore, it is certain that the number of posts in all grades will certainly increase.  Recruitment for such a large number of vacancies provides a big chance for the job aspirant to choose the profession of Loco Pilot. There is no doubt that about 5-6 lakhs aspirants appear in the examination every year. It is likewise significant to mention that even the ladies are finding the job attractive and good number joining the profession. The job of guard is also called in Running staff with duties of travelling with the train from one station to another. There was a news the other day the a lady guard joined Central Railway.

“A 22-year-old, Ms. Shweta Gone, has become the first female to be appointed as a train guard on the Central Railway’s Mumbai division (CRMD). A commerce graduate with more than 80% marks, Ghone stood first in the training conducted for guards. According to the Central Railway Mazdoor Sangh (CRMS) representative, Mr. Vijay Nair, “Gone has been appointed as the guard for a goods’ train, thereafter she will be absorbed in suburban services and later on long-distance passenger trains”.

Educational Qualification                                                                          

This is the best job option for a matriculate, ITI and most importantly even for Diploma Holders

Matriculation or its equivalent under 10+2 system and course completed Act Apprentice

(OR) ITI in any of the following specific trades recognized by SCVT/NCVT. Fitter, Electrician, Instrument Mechanic, Mill Wright/Maintenance Mechanic, Mechanic Radio & TV, Electronics Mechanic, Mechanic Motor Vehicle, Wiremen, Tractor Mechanic, Armature & Coil Winder, Mechanic Diesel, Heat Engine, Turner, Machinist and Refrigerator & AC Mechanic (Basically Electrical/Mechanical Trade)

(OR) Diploma in Mechanical / Electrical / Electronics / Automobile Engineering recognized by AICTE in lieu of ITI

Professional Risk

  • Loss of life and injury is the most concerned professional risk. But with time, the introduction of technology has improved safety standards considerably. If one looks at the statistics, the chance of losing life or injury is very remote.
  • Loco pilot has to face the brunt of lawlessness and getting injured while working in militant infested areas, dacoits etc.
  • Losing a business for any mistake committed, which is related to safety is certain. Keeping oneself healthy and alert can help you to take care of such risk.

Comments: These professional risks do exist in every job and  not more than the risk in every one’s daily life. One need not get scared of such risk but it is important to know before deciding the profession.

Duty Booking System of Loco Pilot

  • There are two types of train operation, namely passenger and freight. Passenger trains run to time-table whereas there is no time-table for freight trains.
  • In the passenger segment also, there are two types of train namely Passenger and Electrical Multiple Unit or Mainline Electrical Multiple Unit. Passenger trains are operated by a Loco Pilot and Assistant Loco Pilot whereas EMU/MEMUs are worked by a Motorman (only one staff on board). Passenger Trains work to a time-table. Coaching links are prepared and LP/ALP is aware of their booking time. Passenger Trains are worked by Senior LPs who has been promoted from Goods Driver to passenger. Similarly Senior ALPs are deputed to work passenger trains. The advantage of working a passenger train is fixed working hours, knowing in advance the duty time to begin and finish.
  • A train is worked by a crew consisting of a Loco Pilot (LP), Assistant Loco Pilot (ALP) and Guard. Booking of LP and ALP is done by the technical department, namely Electrical and Mechanical whereas Guard are booked by the Traffic Department. There is system of combined crew booking lobby where the guard and loco pilot are booked at the same place.  For this the crew reports to a Crew booking Lobby located near the Crew changing point. Look at the photograph of one of the crew lobbies.

Inside of Crew Lobby

Crew Lobby






  • Loco Pilot at computer console for signing on
  • LP and ALP sign on at this lobby and goes through different circulars issued by the management related to safety, technical, speed restrictions etc.A software called Crew Management System is installed at all the crew booking pointswhere all activities are of sign in and off are logged through this console. The crew also undergoes Breathalyzer test before being permitted to sign on and if found having taken liquor, means very likely to be charged with a major penalty and losing your job. Crew reports about half an hour before the schedule time of the train and completes basic functions. Some personality traits that help the loco pilot in his duty.
    • Calm and compose
    • Say big ‘NO’ to liquor
    • Go through the instruction carefully, particularly about any change of the signalling system,  latest speed restriction, major work going in the section etc.
    • Dressed comfortably and in full uniform. Always wear shoes that will help while moving over the ballast
    • Know your crew members and talked to them before the start of the journey
    • Go through your Line box that it has all items essential and  important for the journey
  • In case of freight train, there is no time-table. A train ordering is given by central control depending upon the expected arrival time, about two hours in advance. The crew lobby finds out the name of the LP/ALP/Guard who are in turn as per the last crew signed off, and sends him Train ordering advise. Now-a-days call is also served through mobile messages.
  • The crew waits in the lobby for the train for which rest facilities are provided.
  • The crew takes charge of the locomotive and works the train up to destination observing signalling, speed restriction, alert and exchanging signal. The duty hours for the passenger train is known in advance whereas freight train is worked up to identify next crew change lobby about 110-150 Km, a distance generally covered within 10 hours duty hour from signing on to signing off.

  • The crew goes to rest place at the destination called Running Room. Now-a-days running room is well equipped for a comfortable stay with facilities for sleeping, dining, bathing, recreation etc.  A slide show below gives an idea of the facilities.

  • Upkeep of running rooms is one of the priority areas of management and inspected at regular intervals. During Annual inspection by GM, one of the running room in each division is inspected by him. There is a system of awarding the best maintained running room even at Railway Board Level. Amla Running room in Nagpur Division of Central Railway is well maintained running room and this is what Sr.DEE/ TRO/NGP proudly says about this
  • The beautiful lawn is waiting for the winter in which various flowers enhance the look further. The quiet and calm scintillating atmosphere in chilling winter with fog will not be less than a hill station. Behind the running room there are several banana trees and pomegranate orchids and a teak wood plantation places you in the thick of the woods.

  •  After a rest, LP and ALP are again ready to work back a train back to home station within about 6-8 hrs of rest. Food served and permitted to carry for the journey back is highly subsidized. Earlier, LP/ALP was buying grocery and the food was cooked to their taste. Now with the consent of all it has been changed to standard food, as it provides ample time for rest. Earlier waiting time was much higher.
  • He gets 16 hrs rest at Home station and again available in the roster to work next train.
  • Learning of the road i.e. a route where a LP/ALP has to work is given to familiarize him with section, stations, signalling system, gradient, level crossings etc.
  • One Loco Inspector (LI) for 25 numbers of LP to guide, counsel him and assess him at intervals about his performance. LI grades him as A, B and C category.

Training Program

There is a rigorous training program for newly recruited ALPs as well continuous training program at different stages of the career with examinations. It is compulsory to pass the examination.  The training program includes classroom lectures, simulators, in field training etc. Few photographs to give an idea of the training environment are given below:

Social Status

Till 90’s, running staff were called Driver and Assistant Driver. This designation was giving similarities to truck driver and a feeling of lower status in the society even though earning is better. During British period, Loco driver, Guard etc. were a prestigious position in the society with big houses in Railway colony. See the status of Film Actor Om Prakash in film Julie. Based on the strong representation by Running staff, the designation was changed to Loco pilot to bring similarity with Air Pilot. It was but natural also, because the similarity of  disciplinary standards. With good conduct, one can build a good social status and respect.

Medical and Psychological Test

The highest Medical standard  is required for running category. One should be sure of his medical fitness before planning for the competitive examination. In case you have a slightest doubt of your vision of even (-)0.25, you are not likely to clear the medical examination. The medical examination is done by the Medical team of Indian Railway and never underestimate them that one can dodge them.

Similarly is the examination for Psychological testing. Logical thinking, positive attitude, calmness in behavior are some of the attributes one should possess.

During the service, a Loco pilot undergoes medical examination once in three years compulsorily and if does not pass the prescribed medical test, he is withdrawn from running duties and an alternative posting is given. It has a brighter side also, that one undergoes a medical examination which otherwise many takes very lightly.

 Prospects of attaining High position

The earning of a running staff is significantly high and generally satisfied with the job profession and does not aspire to supervisory post. A loco pilot can come out of running duties and join stationary supervisory jobs such as

  • Loco Inspector
  • Crew and Loco Controller
  • Instructor in Training School

Beside this he is also entitled for appearing in a competitive examination for the post of Assistant Electrical or Mechanical Engineer depending on the cadre he has joined i.e. (Electric or Diesel Loco Pilot). If he succeeds, he may rise to the level of JA grade officer depending on the age he prefers to appear and qualify in the competitive examination.


Once you join the allotted  Division, one can be posted or  transferred to any crew booking lobby. But in practice, one can enjoy the stability with maximum of  2 to 3 transfers in his total career. Thus, one can enjoy reasonable  stability of working at a place in the profession.

Why one should join Assistant Loco Pilot

  • Respectable job with responsibility of highest order
  • Good salary
  • Educational qualification of Matriculation, ITI, Graduation (B.Sc., B.A.) or Diploma is enough to join the cadre. This educational standard is not enough in any other post to earn you this much of money.

Why one should not join the cadre of Assistant Loco Pilot

  • If you have high educational qualification i.e. post graduation, engineering etc. You may find it below your standard when called upon to feel the temperature of axle box or coupling of locomotive with train.

  • If you have any health issues, minor vision problem, poor control on sleep, lack of alertness etc.
  • If you have any psychological issues such high temperament, indiscipline, erratic behavior etc. and may undertake psychological test before aspiring this job.
  • If you are addicted to any drug, alcohol etc.

  1. ir, I am a grauate with EEE stream. I have qualified for ALP Aptitude Test. I got long distance sight (i.e., 8.00 for both eyes ). Am i eligible for Assistant locopilot or any other post. Please reply as soon as possible.

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      6/6 without specs is the prime requirement for ALP so I doubt your eligibility for this. I understand you are graduate in Engineering, by you have not applied for SSE/JE examination?

      • jana sai arun says:

        Sorry for my late reply, I applied SSE/JE Exam, According to you i am not suitable to ALP Locopilot, is there any chance in selecting in techincal post.

        • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

          With a tag of B.Tech, you will find uncomfortable to work as ALP. Even thought at the suitable job of B.Tech, you may get a lesser salary as compared to ALP. After about 10 years of working experience as ALP/LP, you will be eligible for the posting as Loco Inspector.

      • jana sai arun says:

        So, I am not eligible for ALP, Will they allow me to write aptitude test? Is there any necessary to write this aptitude test for Techincal Post?

        • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

          Yes, you are eligible for Skilled Artisan post subject to how you stand in the merit of Artisan.

        • NAVEEN GUPTA says:

          hello I am (b.tech )graduate in mechanical engineering 2013 batch ,i just want to know that what is my carrier growth in railway if i joined as an ALP 2015

          • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

            I will not suggest for you to opt for ALP. Earning wise it is ok and even better than what some of the corporates pay in today”s environment but you will get frustrated very soon finding the general academic standard of ITI and diploma and you possessing engineering degree. If you are not confidant of getting a good job and won’t mind the environment of the company you will have, than go ahead. As far as career is concerned, you will rise from ALP to Goods Driver-Passenger Driver-Express Driver. Generally, one retires at this level and few my rise to the level of Rajdhani level as well depending on the age of joining. There is provision to compete for Loco Inspector post in which your will be training and monitoring the loco pilots. After few years of service you will qualify for limited departmental competitive examination of group B service (called AEE or AME), the officers cadre.

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      You are required have a qualification of ITI and trade does not matter. You can choose the trade of your choice, interest and where you want to make a career otherwise also if not selected in Loco pilot. Pl be sure about your medical standard before planning for this examination.

  9. hari says:

    I have passed the aptitude test of ALP 2014. I am a B Tech graduate. On joining as an ALP, can I migrate to engineering wing of Indian Railway? Is there any chance for me to shift towards JE or SSE while joining as an ALP?

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      No, what you can do is that after working for about a prescribed period of some period, you can appear for Loco Inspector/Crew controller examination and can shift to supervisory cadre. You can also appear for LDCE examination after a prescribed period of service. This is the only option available with you.

    First I would like to thank you for your reply to one of my queries. Now I have a different problem. I have qualified for the written exam of ALP in Banglore cadre in 2014 and I have been called for the aptitude test. Recently they have published the result the of Aptitude test. My problem is , I dont have my Register number to check the result, since it was taken by the exam invigilator during my exam. I have contacted many phone numbers and website for the hall ticket but no one responded. Can you please suggest me how to get the register number? I am waiting for your valuable reply

      Yes you can but you will not be satisfied. I had another quarry from other candidate “I have passed the aptitude test of ALP 2014. I am a B Tech graduate. On joining as an ALP, can I migrate to engineering wing of Indian Railway? Is there any chance for me to shift towards JE or SSE while joining as an ALP? Better if you concentrate supervisory post.

    Am i eligible for assistant of loco pilot. Please rply.

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      Don’t go for ITI just for the purpose of a job of ALP. Because it will be a very tough competition. IR will certainly be advertising posts of Guard, Assistant Station Master, TTE etc. and you will be eligible. You may go for ITI if you want to go for the profession of technician even if not selected to ALP.

    I am short listed for the Document verification process for ALP.
    I have completed my B.Tech and just now Joined M.Tech (2015-2017).
    Is there any scope to appear for the departmental exam of JE and then SSE???
    Should I leave the M.Tech prog andJoin ALP??
    Please reply ASAP.

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      There is no provision for joining departmental examination of JE. When eligible, you can compete for Assistant Electrical Engineer post which class II officer post. In case you are desperate for a job, you may join it and then try your luck for the post of Loco inspectors and thereafter for promotion to Group B post. I would like to say that you will certainly find yourself uncomfortable joining this post even though pay is quite OK, more than an engineering today gets in Private Sector. I have written in details on this post about the type of job one has to perform. In case you decide to join, don’t regret ever but build your career with full enthusiasm.

  17. Gaurav Dwivedi says:

    Sir I have passed aptitude test but in waiting list at number 18. Is there any chance of getting the job. In list all roll numbers are arranged in serial numbers. So will they call us by these serial numbers or by category because I belongs to unreserved.. Pls reply sir.. :(

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      I understand that the panel finalised by RRB and your name is at the WL 18. The respectively Railway will act on the panel which is equal to the vacancies advertised. In case, there is shortfall due to failure to turn up, character verification and medical examination, the Railway ask for a supplementary panel. Due to availability of sufficient candidates, the need for asking a supplementary panel is never felt. In view of this, the chances are bleak and try other options.

  18. Gaurav Dwivedi says:

    Thanks a bunch for ur valuable feedback.. :)
    But total number of vacancies are 1800 approx and 900 for Ur category.. So is 1% shortfall is impossible.. And sir if they will get shortfall of approx 20 trainees.. They will they call me.. Pls reply my last question Mahesh sir…

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      If you are holding diploma, you are eligible. Check the minimum marks as given in the advertisement. The recruitment process started in the year 2014 still not completed.Next advertisement expected only in 2016.

  25. sandeep says:

    sir,i am btech in mechanical engineering, i qualified for alp document verification, i know its very tough job for a graduates, but if i join as alp, after two years of my sevice can i migrate to commercial clerk,

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      It is not a tough job but question of feeling a lower rank job being graduate in engineering. In no way you can migrate to commercial work departmentally, for which you to appear in similar examination conducted by RRB.

      • sandeep says:

        thank u for u r reply sir, after how many years of my service am i eligible to write loco inspector exam and assistant mechanical engineer exam

        • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

          You will be eligible for loco inspector examination after completion of 75000 Km on the job footplate i.e. 3 years as Loco Pilot. It will be around 10-12 years after you join as ALP. Similarly, you will also be eligible for Group B LDCE (competitive examination for 30% of the posts) service almost at the same time. You will be eligible for competitive examination against 70% of the posts after about 25 years.

  26. suman says:

    sir, i am btech mechanical engineer,got selected as trackman in railways, and also i pass in aptitude test for ALP, and called for document verification now what shall i do which job shall i prefer, pls guide me sir,,

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      Never think of joining trackman even if you are not selected as ALP. The cadre of trackman is not fit for the graduate engineer.The job will frustrate you and will regret your life. Can you imagine yourself in the cadre where the minimum education qualification is class VIII pass. So if there is no alternative, you may join as ALP.

      • suman says:

        thank u for u r valuable advice given to me sir, and can u tell me the job desciption of ALP, i mean the duty timings,rest timing,

        • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

          I think I have detailed the job description of ALP and promotional avenues in the posts itself very clearly. If you had any more question, be specific and post your quarry.

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      In any case, you will get the option based on the option given by you and cannot be changed at this stage. But why you are considering Artisan gr III a better job option as compared to ALP?

  29. venky says:

    Hi sir this site helped me a lot clearing all my doubt regarding ALP,i am a btech graduate MECHANICAL,recently cleared my document verification round for ALP,many of my seniors who are working as ALP’s are saying that this job is a toughest job in railways,and they are saying try for je/sse as u were told in earlier comments, so my doubt is…Is this job really tough?,and my family financial position is not good, i have no choice and have to join as ALP if i clear all rounds,what shall i do shall i proceed further,pls reply me,

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      It is not that tough but a disciplined job with no short cut. You will earn much better as compared to je/sse. There is no doubt SSE post is more respectful but nothing can be done when you are not selected. so better join ALP. As I am seeing large many graduate engineers are joining ALP because of not many job opportunities available in the market and very large graduate coming out every years.

      ALP is the choice. But you will find your self odd man, but join if there is no other option to get a job of minimum engineering qualification

    • Mahesh Kumar Jain says:

      Yes, you can. Check your educational qualification of minimum ITI and medical standard of A1. Than wait for the notification of the RRB advertisement for vacancies of ALP, apply, do hard work of preparation as explained on my blogs and fulfill your dream
