Flexi fare in Premium Trains

Flexi fare in Premium Trains

Railways regularly monitor earning and occupancy of all trains including trains under flexi fare scheme. Review of all existing schemes is a continuous and ongoing process to effect further improvement. Accordingly, an interim review of the flexi fare scheme has been made and the following changes were made with effect from 20.12.2016 :-

(i) 10% rebate in basic fare on vacant berths/seats after preparation of first chart in Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains.

(ii) Tatkal quota has been reduced in flexi fare trains from maximum 30% to 10% of the total available berths.

(iii) Discounted fare has been offered in T. No. 12015/12016 New Delhi-Ajmer Shatabdi Express for the passengers travelling between Jaipur-Ajmer and Ajmer-Jaipur and in T.No. 12007/12008 Chennai Central-Mysuru Shatabdi Express for the passengers travelling between Bengaluru-Mysuru and Mysuru- Bengaluru.

Operating cost of running of passenger services is increasing year after year resulting in adverse impact on profitability of passenger segment. Passenger segment is being cross subsidised by the freight segment. In order to generate additional revenues from passenger segment and reduce cross-subsidisation from freight, flexi fare system has been introduced with effect from 09.09.2016 in all classes of reserved accommodation except First AC and Executive class of premium segment trains (Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains) which offer faster transit time and higher level of amenities. Additional earnings of about `551 crore has been generated from the trains under flexi fare scheme (Rajdhani, Shatabdi and Duronto trains) during the period from 09.09.2016 to 30.06.2017.

This Press Release is based on the information given by the Minister of State for Railways Shri Rajen Gohain in a written reply to a question in Lok Sabha on 26.07.2017 (Wednesday).

Catering Policy 2017: NFIR

Catering Policy 2017: NFIR

new-catering-policy-2017-irctc

No.II/80(i) / Catg. /Policy/2017

Dated: 21/06/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Catering Policy 2017-reg.
Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. 2016/TG-IIV6001/Pt. dated 27/02/2017
(Commercial Circular No.20/2017
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2003/TR/10 Pt. dated 27/06/2011.

The Railway Board have since issued catering policy 2017 vide Commercial Circular No. 20/2017 bearing letter No. 2016/TG-III/6001/Pt. dated 27/02/2017.

In this connection, NFIR conveys that pursuant to implementation of catering policy 2010, the Railway Board had consulted the Federation on the issues relating to service conditions of catering. staff and formal meetings were held at the level of AM (T&C) and decisions taken by an agreement with the Federations.

It is surprising to note that the Railway Board have not consulted the Federation while finalizing revised policy as replacement to catering policy 2010. The Departmental Catering Staff are in panicky as they feel that their future will get doomed. It needs to be appreciated that in the course of implementation of catering policy 2010, those Departmental Catering Staff deployed under IRCTC were taken back to Departmental Catering again by the respective Zonal Railways. Now, the revised policy has been brought into force and the Departmental Catering Units wherever exist are being outsourced/contractorized which would again dislocate the Departmental Catering Staff. Chronological events since the year 2013 would prove that Departmental catering staff have been subjected to hardships.
NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to convene a meeting at the level of AM(T&C) early to discuss staff related issues arisen consequent to the attempts for implementation of catering policy 2017 for protecting the legitimate interests of Departrnental Catering Staff. Pending discussions and decision, it is also requested that the Catering Units presently manned by Departmental Catering staff on Zonal Railways may be allowed to continue without disturbance.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Ragharvaiah)
General Secretary

Extension of age limit of retired Railway Doctors as Contact Medical Practitioners upto the age of 70 years

The Director General (RHS),

New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Extension of age limit of retired Railway Doctors as Contact Medical Practitioners upto the age of 70 years-reg.

Ref:  NFIR’s letter No. 11/13 (B) dated 10/05/2016, 23/05/2016, 22/08/2016, 25/11/201614/02/2017 & 10/04/2017.

Kind attention is invited to Federation’s letters cited above and my discussions with DG(P) wherein the Federation had requested that the retired Railway Doctors may be allowed to be reappointed upto the age of 70 years on the specific recommendation of concerned CMD for such appointment against a vacant post. As a result of discussions, the DG (P) said that the Board would consider processing the case for permitting the retired Railway Doctors for reappointment subject to the upper age limit being 68 years.

It is, however, learnt that there has been no progress towards revising the existing age limit of 65 years upwardly. Federation, therefore, once again requests to kindly arrange to take necessary action for allowing the reappointment of retired Railway Doctors on the specific approval of concerned CMD atleast upto the age of 68 years.

Yours fraternally,
