      ek kaam ki baat btata hu

      Rail_budget 2015 ka Poetriatic haal sunata
      hu

      Railway minister ‪#‎Suresh_prabhu ne aaj kayi aelaan kiye

      "Bdhega rail kiraya nahi" keh k
      bde aehsaan kiye

      400 Railway stations pe wifi suvidha
      uplabhdh krwayi jayegi..

      Ek sms system bhi jari hoga jo ye btayega
      train kb ayegi kb jayegi

      9 trains ki speed ko 160-200 km/hr krna hai


      8.5 lakh crore bhaiya 5 saalo me kharch
      krna hai

      Ab ticket ko aap 4 mahine (120 days) pehle
      b book kr skte ho

      Koi prblm aye to helpline num 138 diya aap
      cal kr skte ho

      Ek aur toll free num hai 182 for security
      related complaint

      & there is "Operation 5 min"
      for ticketless passengers so tht station ane k baad unhe na krni parhe 5 min se
      jada wait

      Mobile charging system bhi general coaches
      me uplabhdh krwaya jayega

      108 trains me e-catering ka naya fundaa
      ayega

      17000 toilets ki jagah Bio-toilets ayenge

      Jo k swachh bharat abhiyan ko aur
      chamkayenge

      Baaki aam janta k liye is baar koi nayi
      train nahi ayi...

      As Modi g kehna hai humne human welfare k
      liye only services ko hari jhandi dikhayi

      Iske ilawa Bharat ki pehli female Railway
      minister ti ‪#‎Mamta_banrjee..

      & Lalu parsad yadav ne 2004-09 me
      recorded 6 tyms Rail budget ko hari jhandee di

    38. It is better to go for syndicate PO...90 marks in general is not at all a safe score. If you get IBPS PO you can leave manipal by paying one trimester fee..If you dont get IBPS you are thus safe. If you dont go for syndicate and not get ibps there is no surety that you make it next year.. Even if you get next year posting will take a long time..But in syndicate you will be an by this year end..So try to play safe
