    To applying in Indian Railways the minimum qualification is needed 12th passed .

    In exams the syllabus comes from :

    And after appearing on the exam you can get the job in Indian Railway at the post of

    HI........
    Dear there are something which you have to know first.

    There are four Group in Indian Railway.Group I, II, III, IV. Exam for Group I and Group III is conducted by UPSC.
    And UPSC ask for Graduation Level to fight these exam.So you have to be a graduate to participate in these exam. Also some exams are conducted for technical post so for that you have to be technical graduate to apply in these exam. IES is one that exam which you have to fight for technical post.

    And for group IV RRB conduct the exam. for some of the exam you have to be 10th qualified, for some you have to be 12th and for other you have to be graduate. All these information you will get in notification issued by RRB.


    conclusion is if you are a graduate then you can apply for most of the railway exam.

    good luck
