HRM in Indian Railways


Human Resource Management in Indian Railways is managed by officers of Indian Railway Personnel Service (IRPS), a Group 'A' service created on 1.1.1976 through a promulgation issued by the President of India. IRPS officers are recruited through the Civil Services Examination conducted by the Union Public Service Commission. In-service Group 'B' personnel officers of IR also have a channel of career progression into IRPS.

IRPS is the only organised Group 'A' service specializing in the Human Resources functions under the Government of India. 

The expertise of the IRPS officers in the HR field in the government sector has been much in demand to the extent that nearly 10% of these officers have been serving on deputation in the other ministries of the Government of India, PSUs, and State Governments. 

IRPS officers manage the entire gamut of HR functions that impact over 1.3 million serving employees and 1.4 million retired employees of Indian Railways. The wide range of functions handled by them include the following:

  • Formulation, Interpretation, Implementation of HR Policies
  • Manpower Planning & Right sizing
  • Recruitment
  • Appointments
  • Background and confidential checks by coordinating with district administration
  • Career records management
  • Employee compensation & employee benefits
  • Career Progression
  • Seniority
  • Performance Appraisals

  • Training & Development
  • Talent Management
  • Employee Reward & Recognition
  • Monitoring Labour law enforcement
