Private answer

Bharat Sanchar Nigam limited Junior Telecom officer job is considered as one of the top choices for the Electronics & Communication Engineering Graduates. The Railway Senior Section Engineer is among the top job for the core branches of the engineering.

Here we are going to check the key comparison between these two top government job position for the Graduate Engineers:

Job Security

Being a central Government position, the Railway Senior Section Engineer is a secure and stable job for the freshers.


Both organizations follow a different pattern of pay scales, Railway SE gets appointed in the level-7 of revised pay matrix as per the 7th Pay Commission. The basic pay of Senior Section Engineer starts from the 44,900. The minimum gross salary of an SE would be 60,000 per month from the regular appointment in the service.

Bharat Sanchar Nigam limited follows the DPE recommended IDA pay pattern in which JTO recruited on E1 (16,400 - 40,500 ) Payscale. The gross emolument of a Junior Telecom Officer is Rupees 45,000 monthly.

Post Nature

If we go on the official record of the Railway, SE is a Group-C /Class-III non-executive post.
The Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited Junior Telecom Officer is an executive post in the Group-B or Class-II cadre.


As the Railway department is a pure central government organization, hence here employee get better facilities which include government quarter, the medical facility for self & dependents, yearly bonus, LTC, reservation on train ticket through department quota etc.

The BSNL is a loss-making PSU which has not yet implemented the 3rd Pay Revision Committee recommendations for the employees, the Facilities are being curtailed day by day due to the heavy losses and stiff competition in the telecom sector.

If you have to choose from above two, Railway Senior Section Engineer looks secure job with a decent pay structure and good facilities.
