    There is no such exam named SCARA. There is only SCRA. SCRA means Special Class Railway Apprentices. It is an exam conducted by the union Public Service Commission. After section you have to be trained in Mechanical Engineering at the IRIMEE, Jamalpur. IRIMEE means Mechanical Engineering at the Indian Railways Institute of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. IRSME was started way back in 1927. After the candidate has successfully completed his training at IRSME the candidate has to take a higher level training program and after that they will become Group A officers.

    After completion of probation in the post of Group A officer you will be posted as junior Scale Officer. If the authority are satisfied with your work you will be promoted as the Senior Scale which will be done after 2 years from the date of appointment of junior scale officer.

    Then the next promotion post is the Junior Administrative Grade for 8-10 years of successful completion in senior scale officer. After 10 years you will be given a selection grade.

    The next promotion post is the Senior Adminsitrative Grade which is also equalent to the Join Secretary, Government of india. You will become Senior administrative Grade after 16 to 18 years of service. The candidates appointed as senior administrative grade will be the head of various workshops functioning at the headquarters office, as additional divisional manager or as the Executive Director in the railway board.

    After this the nest level is Divisional Railway manager even though the pay scale will be the same. This promotion will be done only after 6 years experience as Senior Administrate Grade. Divisional Railway Manager will be head of the division level.

    Now there are 67 divisions and hence there will be 67 divisional managers. The main work will be with regard to the running of train and will also include loco sheds, coaching deposts and wagon deports. Each head of these group will report to the Divisional Manager and they will work according to the railway board guidelines.
