    Dear Aspirant!

    To apply for the post of Loco Pilot in Indian Railways minimum educational qualification required is Must pass Metrication and ITI course with any Group.

    Age limits are:
    18 years to 28 years.

    Being Graduate in B.Tech with Mechanical Engineering , you are eligible to apply Loco Pilot posts but it is lower post.
    So, Better to apply for Engineering Level posts in Indian Railways like:

    ->Technical department.
    ->Indian Railway Traffic services.
    ->Indian Railway Store services
    ->Managerial posts.

    Hi friend,the eligibility critiria for locopilot job in indian railways is first class matriculation,so being b.tech student you are definitely eligible to apply for locopilot job in indian railways.The selection process is written test,physical efficiency test and personal interview...As you are b.tech mechanical engineering graduate you can apply for jr.engineer job which offer more salary and higher rank in railways rather than locopilot job.You can also apply for government companies like hal,bhel,sail,hpcl,gail etc...all the best...
