    With a B.Tech qualification certainly you can apply for a job in the railways. You should make sure that you apply for entrance exam conducted by RRB. There will be questions from areas like General Awareness, General English, Reasoning ability, Arithmetic ability, General intelligence. There will also be a technical ability test which will depend on the post applied for. Normally there will be 150 questions. You will have two hours to answer. Attempt only those areas where you are sure of the answer as there is negative marking.

    You can get a job in railways only after you successfully complete your B.Tech degree. With a B.Tech degree, you can apply for technical officer positions. You can apply for Assistant engineer, Project engineer, junior engineer etc in railways. Notifications about similar technical positions will be published in official site of railways. You can apply for jobs in railways via online. Maximum age limit for this is 30 years. You will have to attend written examination by railway recruitment board. If you clear written exam, you will have to appear for personal interview also.

    Friend, being graduate in machanical engineering so you are fit for technical cadre which falls under C and D categories.

    Group C students directly get promoted to the B group through promotion there is no special exam held for oy.

    Syllabus and selection process is different for different jobs profile.

    There is written exam lasts for 90 minutes.

    So prepare for it, you also get recruited at group A through UPSC exam..

    Thank You!!!!!!.
