MUMBAI: The Indian Railways has tied up with Tata Consultancy ServicesBSE -0.95 % to pilot a system to conduct its recruitment exams online, as the country’s largest employer looks to introduce transparency into its operations.

For TCS, the pilot is a prestigious one. The railways employ about 1.4 million people and government jobs are highly sought after. In the railway recruitment drive during 2014-15, examinations were conducted for 48,822 vacancies in 284 categories, the railways said in June.

“We are running a pilot with TCS to make the recruitment process more streamlined. Applications are already being doing online but now the exams will also be done online to prevent problems,” an executive with the railway recruitment board said.

He declined to be identified because he is not the authorized spokesperson. More info
