In December 2019, the Modi government merged all the existing eight railway services into one service called the IRMS. There was outrage in the social media for it from many of the eight railway services. And the exams to appoint the civil and engineering employees for IRMS will start from 2021 confirm sources. But for this year, the earlier pattern is to continue. Officers for Accounts, Traffic, and Personnel services will be recruited through CSE or civil services exam and for the remaining services through the IES or the Indian Engineering Service exams.
