    Work profile of Indian Railway Traffic Service

    Want to join Indian Railway Traffic Service? Find out from this Ask Expert page what are the work responsibilities and if it involves a lot of hectic schedules.

    I would like to know if the commercial wing of Indian Railway Traffic Service (IRTS) is hectic. I cannot do a job which involves dealing with the public at a hectic pace. I only wish to work at a job where I go to work in the morning & return home in the evening with stress-free work. Hence I wish to know the working hours of IRTS and if I am suitable for it. Also, is there any Group 'A' service in the Railways which fulfils my above-mentioned work criteria?
