    SCRA stands for Special Class Railway Apprentice.
    It is an exam conducted by the UPSC for training a handful of deserving candidates with MECHANICAL ENGINEERING for a course of 4 years and after the completion of this time span,,they are placed in as GRADE A RAILWAY OFFICERS to carry out the RAILWAY OPERATIONS.
    You should give it a try because it is one of the best post at the centre,with full of responsibility,dignity and involves a good amount of salary too.
    Only few candidates get the opportunities to get in there .

    The results for the SCRA exams held on 29th January,2012 are supposed to be out by the first week of June.

    Good Luck !!
