Dear Sir.
Sub: LARSGESS-reg.

The subject was also discussed with the Member (Staff) by NFIR on 25th October, 2018 and explained the need for issuing instructions to GMs to appoint the wards of safety category staff who have already been selected prior to 27/10/2017. The MS has assured to take appropriate initiative and reach CRB for decision.

NFIR, therefore, requests the CRB to kindly see that orders are issued by Railway Board for appointing those selected wards of safety category staff early. As already requested by the Federation, CRB and Railway Board may kindly take conscious decision with regard to continuance of LARSGESS keeping in mind the reality that the Indian Railways is unique, complex and un-comparable with any other system and at times, decisions are required to be taken by Railways in larger public interest and equally safety of staff belonging to critical safety categories.

Waiver of requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify the pensioner

Requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify the pensioner – Circular 205

Sub: Waiver of requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify the pensioner.

During various Defence Pension Adalats, representations are being received against the requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify pensioner.

The issue has been examined and it is noticed that various checks to be observed by the Pension Disbursing Authorities (PDAs) before making payment for first time on new Pension Payment Orders (PPOs)/transferred PPOs are provided in para 584 of DPPI-2005 & 2013. Similarly, these checks were circulated to the PDAs as Annexure-A to important Circular No.113 dt 27/05/2005. Item No. 7 and No. 15 of DPPI and Annexure-A to above mentioned circular respectively states that two defence pensioners should identify a new pensioners (except officer).

Now a days, requirement of producing two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify the pensioner which is applicable to the pensioners below officer ranks does not seem correct, as PDAs are required to identify the pensioner based on marks of identification furnished in Descriptive Rolls/Descriptive Particulars and photographs provided to them.

Accordingly PDAs are requested to refer this office circular No. 197 dt 10/01/2018, and follow the guidelines issued there under for identification by additional documents produced by defence pensioners in absence of Aadhaar Number as indicated in Notification No. S.0 747(E) dt 03/03/2017 issued by Ministry of Defence, Deptt. of ESW rather than insisting the pensioner to produce two pensioners drawing pension from same PDA to identify him/her.

Acquiring of requisite qualifications by Trainees in -IS Pay Band and others

Acquiring of requisite qualifications by Trainees in -IS Pay Band and others – Railways

Government of India (Bharat Sarkar)
Ministry of Railways (Rail Mantralaya)
(Railway Board)

No. E(NG)II/2017/RC-1/23

New Delhi, dated 05.11.2018

The General Secretary,
All India Railwaymen Federation
New Delhi

Sub: Acquiring of requisite qualifications by Trainees in -IS Pay Band and others
Ref: Railway Board’s letter of even No. dated 19.7.2018

Federations had been requested vide above reference albeit on a slightly different matter to impress upon the candidates who did not have the requisite minimum educational qualification for appointment in the Railways but were appointed in -IS Pay Band to acquire the requisite qualification in a reasonable period. Reports received shows that while many candidates have been able to acquire such qualifications, there remain some such ‘Trainees’ who are yet to acquire these qualifications.

Federations may appreciate that acquiring of minimum educational qualification is necessary for the career prospects of such Trainees’ and is an important aspect of human resource development. Therefore, a request is again made to impress upon such ‘Trainees’ make sincere efforts and acquire the requisite minimum qualification. It may be mentioned that there are many Open Schools which provide such opportunities.

2. While on the subject, it is also mentioned that a large number of compassionate ground appointees are taken into Railway service initially as trainee artisans who, after completion of 3 years prescribed period of training, are absorbed in regular technician category but they do not have any formal Certificate. It is suggested that it may be worthwhile to encourage such employees to appear in the NCVT examination conducted by the respective RDATs along with the Act Apprentices. This will enable them to have a formal qualification recognized outside also. Needless to say that this will be purely informal and their regularization as Technician-III shall not be incumbent upon passing such examination.

Your suggestions in this regard are welcome.

AIRF requests Railway Board about Safety of the Railway employees

AIRF requests Railway Board about Safety of the Railway employees

No.AIRF/24(C)

Dated: 5th November, 2018

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Safety of the Railway employees

This is in reference to my discussion held today with you, wherein I have requested you to review immediately Removal Cases of the Railway employees of Kharagpur Division of S.E. Railway, under para 14(ii), as also to do urgently to save Railwaymen from run-over, forced to work under unsafe conditions without taking block, as happened today between Sandila and Umartali Stations in Northern Railway.

 

In this connection, your kind attention is invited towards my earlier letters, D.O.No.AIRF/24(C) dated 13th and 17th August, 2018, vide which your kind attention was drawn towards the unpleasant incidents of commitment of suicide by Shri Harrison John, Loco Pilot, Jabalpur Division(West Central Railway) and Shri Bablu Kumar, Trackman, Sholapur (Central Railway).

 

We had requested your goodself to take necessary steps to ensure that no Railwayman commits suicide in frustration and sense of disappointment. It is quite unfortunate that, there is no visible improvement in the situation up till now, and another case of suicide has been noticed, wherein Shri G.K. Kishori, Asstt. Loco Pilot, Kharagpur, South Eastern Railway, has committed suicide on 3rd November, 2018, out of serious frustration, which is highly condemnable as well.

 

Co-workers of Late Shri G.K. Kishori had resorted to agitation owing to failure of his superiors to timely address the problem of the said deceased employee and they need not be subjected to any punitive action.

 

It may be recalled that, on the consistent and regular persuasions, Railway Board had issued instructions, on your intervention, to invoke Clause 14(ii) in exceptional cases only where D&AR enquiry is not practicable and safety of the state is under threat.

 

Through this letter we want to emphasize here that, urgent necessary steps should be taken by counseling the concerned officials, so that, no Railway employee is compelled to commit suicide and lose his/her precious life as the entire family of such Railway employee is put under serious distress.

We had also requested that, keeping in view various attacks on the Railway employees on duty as also run-over cases of Railway employees due to negligence and overlooking of prescribed procedure and rules need to be given serious thought, so as to avoid recurrence of such unpleasant incidents.

 

It is also requested that, “Rakshak” should immediately be supplied, as well as you have promised; working on the track without protection must be banned, and if Trackmen are forced to work under unsafe conditions, the deterrent punishment should be given to the guilty supervisors and officers responsible.

 

While communicating our serious concern over such incidents, AIRF once again emphasizes that necessary steps be taken with all seriousness, so that, no such cases occur in future.

Yours faithfully

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
