What is the eligibility for Special Class Railway Apprentice (SCRA)?


My age is 21 years old and belong to OBC caste category. Am I eligible for Special Class Railway Apprentice (SCRA)? Is there any age relaxation for OBC candidates?

SCRA refers to Special Class Railway Apprentice and same examination was held by UPSC once every year till 2015 for selection of deserving candidates for providing education and training before their recruitment in Indian Railways.

As far as you are concerned about the age limit for appearing in SCRA then it is not worthy as SCRA is not held now. But, for your information I would like to let you know that in case of SCRA the age limit for all candidates ( regardless of the category they belong ) was 17 years to 21 years.

SCRA is Special Class Railway Apprentice and now no SCRA examination is conducted which was earlier conducted by UPSC.

So, you are not eligible to appear for examination.

The age limit for SCRA exam is 17-21 years for open category candidates. Upper age relaxation applicable to candidates of reserved category. OBC candidates will have three years upper age relaxation and SC/ST candidates have five years upper age relaxation

SCRA examination has been scrapped from 2016. It is no more conducted by Union Public Service Commission.

Union Public Service Commission does not conduct Special Class Railway Apprentice examination. It is terminated from 2016.

Earlier, age limit was 17-21 years for general candidates. Three years upper age relaxation to OBC and five years to SC/ST candidates.

Sorry, now no SCRA examination is conducted.

Earlier the examination was conducted by UPSC for recruitment in Indian Railway as an officer after 12th.

But, UPSC did not conduct the examination after 2015.

So, no chance of appearing for the examination.
