The Railway Minister and also the spokesperson of the Ministry of Railways have given out a statement last week stating that it would recruit 2.3 lakh employees over the next 2 years in two phases.

According to official statistics, In 2018, the second biggest employer in Indian Economy initiated recruitment for 1,51,548 posts and hence left 1,31,428 posts vacant.

Also, the Railways said that 53,000 and 46,000 employees would retire during the next 2 years thereby causing an additional vacancy of 99,000 employees which is probably what you are asking about. This is a part of fresh recruitment in the Railways as a part of some ambitious programs from the Railway Minister Piyush Goyal.
