Providing Platform ticket along with Vehicle Parking Ticket

By on July 14, 2013

Whenever a car is parked at a Railway station, the same is driven by a person who intends to drop his relative or friends to board the train. He is always looking for a platform ticket and has to search for ticket window as well may have to stand in a queue. Why not sell the platform ticket along with parking ticket which will benefit the public as well as the cost of manpower for selling low value ticket? Even if it is now possible, the platform ticket may be issued if the person so desires along with a reserved ticket. This will certainly bring a smile on the face of the person driving the vehicle to drop his dear ones to the station.

    I would be glad if you help me clear my doubts:

    – Is it possible to get job as Loco Pilot on the basis of 12th standard qualification? Or ITI/Diploma is required.

    – After completing ITI/Diploma can I directly apply for the post of Loco Pilot? Or is there anything else that needs to be done before sending the application form to RRB.

    – Is there any minimum requirement of height, weight, chest size, etc. to apply for the post of Loco Pilot?

    – Who conducts the other physical tests such as vision test, blood pressure, ECG, etc? Can they be done by any doctor or only by the doctors suggested by RRB?

    Thank you.

      1. Minimum qualification is ITI, and you may be diploma and BE.
      2. You can directly apply
      3. Check the advertisement for the minimum medical requirement.
      4. You will undergo medical examination after Technical and Aptitude test is over and you have passed it. Medical examination is conducted by Railway Doctors in Railway hospital. There is no relaxation in medical examination and done very diligently. Not only this, read the entire blog there about the medical fitness required throughout the career. In case you have any doubt about your medical health, get it checked up before making an attempt. You will certainly get demoralized if you passed the examination and then fail in medical. It happens with many.
