Unification of eight existing services of Indian Railways for Indian Railway Management Service (IRMS) is being done at all levels, i.e., from Junior Scale to HAG+ (Higher Administrative Grade). However, modalities for unification and assignment of inter se seniority were to be decided by Alternative Mechanism. For this, Ministry of Railways and DOPT worked together to work out the necessary formula before it is taken up by Alternative Mechanism ensuring that no one will be at a disadvantage.
27 posts of GMs have been upgraded to apex grade. It will be ensured that eligible officers of all the erstwhile services get apex grade post of GM. In the cabinet note approved, it has been mentioned that officers of IRMS (constituted by 8 services) only will be eligible to become the Functional Members and Chairman/CEO of Railway Board. The number of Independent members will be decided by the Government. They will be non- Executive Members and will attend the Board meetings. They will not be involved in day-to-day functioning of Railways. Their experience of market and field will help in strategic planning of Indian Railways.
In December 2019, with an aim to end ‘departmentalism’ in railways, the cabinet committee on economic affairs (CCEA), chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has announced the merger of eight existing Group A services into a central service, this is the statement issued by the IRMS. The services that are being merged are:

Efforts have been made to complete the unification at the earliest. Officers will continue doing the work which they were doing at present. Domain knowledge will be taken into consideration while deciding a posting. Future recruits to IRMS will be made through UPSC (Civil Services) in consultation with UPSC and DOPT.
The reforms as suggested by various committees from time to time including Prakash Tandon Committee (1994) have been largely adopted. The decision for unification was taken based on the sentiments and suggestions of all levels of officers during “Parivartan Sangosthi” held on 07th & 08th December, 2019 at New Delhi. These were also suggested by all groups constituted under GMs during Parivartan Sangosthi. The suggestions were unanimously agreed to by the Railway Board.
