He also said that the decision to merge the services was to ensure that officers put railways first instead of their service which had become the case under the present system.
The exact details will be worked out, but the thinking is like this – the aspirants take the prelim and then indicate their choices. They will be given an option to appear for IRMS also,” Yadav said
