The appointments will be made based on clearance from Central Vigilance Commission

Railway Minister Mallikarjun Kharge on Friday said all vacancies in the Railway Board would be filled, following clearance from the Central Vigilance Commission, soon.

Mr. Kharge said the post of board chairman, which is set to be vacated on June 30 with the retirement of Vinay Mittal, would be filled either by Monday or Tuesday in consultation with the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet. Sweeping changes are to be made at the board’s higher level — the chairman, two board members, six general managers and 24 Divisional Railway Managers stand to be replaced.
