Railway Staff College is the Alma Mater of Railway Officers where they are given the basic training, at the time of entering service, and then, groomed from time to time, to enable them to shoulder higher responsibility in the Organisation. It is both a cradle for nurturing and a crucible for tempering the personality of Railway Officers to make them fulfill the Corporate goal of Indian Railways. here are five centralized Training Institutes (CTIs) on the Indian Railways. While four other CTIs impart training mainly to the officers of one specified discipline Railway Staff College runs training courses for officers of all disciplines and all grades right from Probationers to prospective General Managers. Around 2500 officers participate annually in the various courses run here. The duration of the courses varies from one week to eight weeks. Railway officers of some of the Afro-Asian countries also undergo training here. Officers of some of the Public Sector Undertakings avail themselves of the learning facilities provided here. Last year 145 probationers of Central Services like Indian Revenue Services, Indian Customs & Central Excise, Indian Police Services, etc. received 116 days training the RSC in two batches. Two faculty members went to Tanzania in 1995 for training Tanzanian Railway officers.
The college was founded in 1930 at Dehradun and then shifted to its present regal sylvan surroundings at Vadodara, in 1952. It is housed in the Pratap Vilas Palace (built in 1914 AD) surrounded by lush green lawns and designed by C.F. Stevens in the renaissance style. The property comprising of 55 acres of garden and wooded land, enlivened by the calls of peacocks and migratory birds, was purchased from the Gaikwads (erstwhile rulers) of Vadodara.
Indian Railways is a very important segment of the country's transport infrastructure celebrating 150 glorious years of their existence and keeping pace with changing times the railways will be an integral part of India's infrastructure planning for the new millennium. The Indian Railways have a competent, hard working and highly skilled workforce of about 1.5 million with tremendous potential to excel in almost all the professional areas even on a global basis.
An efficient transport infrastructure is a very crucial asset for social and economic development of a country. Personal mobility for work, study and leisure, efficient and economical distribution of resources and produce are the essential requirements of modern day living. Recognizing this the tenth five year plan gives importance to increasing the operational efficiency, productivity of existing assets and major policy reforms including rationalization of freight and fare structure to facilitate our qualitative reform and development of railway system to face the major challenges which are before the Indian Railways today.
Human resource is the most important resource of any organization whose efficiency determine success. Therefore, development of this resource is of prime concern for Indian Railways.
Indian Railways employs over 6.0 lakhs group ‘D’ staff, about 9 lakhs group ‘C’ staff and 15,000 group ‘A’ and group ‘B’ officers including over 3000 medical officers. The training of non-gazetted staff is organised at various System, Technical and Divisional Zonal Training Schools on the Zonal Railways itself. There are 169 training centres located across the railway system for meeting the training needs of non-gazetted staff. Training of officers is conducted at six Centralised Training Institutes
New dimension has been added to the customary/training programmes by laying stress on Strategic Management as the need of the hour is to provide a new direction to the system thinking training of the learning organization. Senior managers of the Indian Railways have been going to Manchester Business School (MBS) for Strategic Training Management. This year Railway Staff College has attained the necessary capability of undertaking this task and from January'96 the 2 weeks Advanced Management Programme (AMP) has been converted into one month duration covering all the MBS modules.
Information Technology, Info-Yoga,Project Management, Strategic Human Resource Development and Managing Intangibles were new courses added in 1995-96.

The faculty uses multi-media equipments such as closed circuit TV, video camera, microcomputers for hands-on training apart from training-related equipments such as overhead projectors and epidiascope.
