Brief of the meeting held on 07.12.2018 with Hon’ble Minister for Railways

Brief of the meeting held on 07.12.2018 with Hon’ble Minister for Railways

All India Railwaymen’s Federation
4, State Entry Road, New Delhi – 110055

No.AIRF/24(C)

Dated: December 8, 2018

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Sub: Brief of the meeting held on 07.12.2018 with Hon’ble Minister for Railways

Dear Comrades,
Yesterday I met Hon’ble Minister for Railways and shown our anguish against the inordinate delay in resolving the problems of the Railwaymen at an earliest. We have also mentioned about the discussions held with the Railway Board on 4-5 December, 2018 and our decision of “Work To Rule”.

He had given positive response and called the Member Staff and Financial Commissioner(Railways), Railway Board, telling them to resolve the problems of the Railwaymen at an earliest, including implementation of four grade structure, in the ratio of 10:20:20:50, in case of Trackmen/Track Maintainers, revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff, Restructuring of the IT Cadre, etc. etc. The meeting was held in a very cordial atmosphere and Hon’ble MR had appreciated the sentiments of the Railwaymen organized under AIRF.
This is for your information.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary
Pending burning issues of the Railwaymen

The undernoted burning issues have been time and again brought to your kind notice for early redressal thereof because non-redressal of these issue is causing serious deep sense of discontentment among the Railway Staff……

1.Implementation of four grade structure in the ratio of 10:20:20:50 in case of Trackmen/Track Maintainers – As you are very well aware that, the Joint Committee on Package and Career Progression of Trackmen had, unanimously recommended to grant four grade structure to the category of Trackmen/Track Maintainers in the ratio of 10:20:20:50 with a view to facilitate advancement prospects to this ever neglected category of the staff who are directly involved in safe train operation by maintaining railway track. Despite assurance given by the Railway Board, during the course of discussions in Railway Board PNM with AIRF, that, orders would be issued within a couple of days to implement the said four grade structure, final outcome is still awaited, due to which serious resentment is brewing among the Trackmen/Track Maintainers.

2.Revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff – This issue has also been deliberated at length at several occasions, but unfortunately, Railway Board’s instructions to this effect are yet to be issued. The Running Staff, both Loco & Traffic, are seriously concerned due to inordinate delay in revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other allowances related to Running Staff because on previous occasions the revision used to be done just after implementation of recommendations of the successive Central Pay Commissions.

I would, therefore, seek your personal intervene, so that, revision of the rates of the aforesaid allowances is done without any further delay.

3.Restructuring of the IT Cadre – Information Technology has gained paramount importance in all walks of the life. While IT Cadre was formed in the Indian Railways more than a decade ago, but there is still some confusion in regard to dysfunction and Human Resource Management. Railway Board had issued instructions for Cadre Restructuring of IT Cadre (Ref.No.2016/AC-II(CC)/37/9 dated 18.04.2017(RBA No.45/2017), No.2017/AC-II(CC)/37/7 dated 29.06.2017 and No.2017/AC-II/37/9 dated 29.12.2017), but unfortunately, an impracticable condition was imposed to surrender all the vacant posts in the cadre, whereas, in Cadre Restructuring of other categories, only number of posts of Matching Money Value were surrendered and not the entire vacant posts. We have been regularly pursuing this issue, and the present Financial Commissioner, Railway Board, also assured to take necessary action in the matter, but final outcome is still awaited.

I would, therefore, request that, this issue should also be looked into on priority and revised orders issued early.

I sincerely hope that, the above issues would definitely be given due attention and necessary instructions shall be issued without any further delay, keeping in view the discontentment brewing among these vulnerable categories of the Railwaymen.

(ii) Presentation made to the Board on 06.03.2018
(iii) This office letter of even No. dated 23.03.2018

Pursuant to the presentation made by the GM/NWR to full Board on 06.03.2018, recommendations of the Committee have been considered by the Board (ME,MT,MS,FC,CRB) Following key recommendations have been approved by CRB.

1.  At the time of exercising option for fixation of pay the employee shall be provided with two options for calculation of pay so that he is able to pick up the best. As the employee would be exercising the option in a more informed manner, a wider window be provided to them, if they seek to change the option, and Master Circular for the pay fixation should be suitably amended.

2. Zonal Railways can consider providing accommodation (not leased) strictly for family of field level staff at a nodal station generally within 50-100 kms of the way side station where he or she is posted. The Zonal Railway may chose the nodal station on their own where they want to operate this scheme as per feasibility and allot vacant quarters at the nodal stations on the first come fist serve basis. If required some of the way side station quarters can be converted into transit camp or dormitories at the discretions of Zonal Railways. This would alleviate a major concern of out field staff who face problems on this account. GM’s may take necessary action based on the above.

3. It would be better to provide resting facility with toilets at manned level crossings for use by the trackmen and other field staff. This facility can be a temporary structure made up of porta cabins and be provided within the sanctioned budget of the Zonal Railways.

4. All other items which are apparently of general nature may be taken up as a pilot project by GM/NWR for which he is being fully authorized. The result of the pilot project be sent to Board for further action.

Concerned Directorates will issue necessary detailed instructions in respect of items at 1,2 & 3 above in particular and other items listed in the Annexure wherever necessary.

This issues with the concurrence of Associate Finance of Transformation Cell.

Salary and Travelling Allowance to retired Railway Staff re-engaged in Railways

Salary and Travelling Allowance to retired Railway Staff re-engaged in Railways

NFIR

No.II/57/Part I

Dated: 02-07-2018

The Secretary (E)
Railway Board
New Delhi

Dear sir,

Sub: Salary and Travelling Allowance to retired Railway Staff re-engaged in Railways – reg.

vide Railway Board’s instructions under letter No.E(NG)II/2007/RC-4/CORE/I dated 16/10/2017 [Item (vii) of para 2], it has been stipulated that the monthly remuneration of a retired employee being re-engaged be determined by reducing pension from his/her last pay drawn (i.e Basic Pay + DA). also vide Board’s letter dated 12/12/2017, the maximum age limit for re-engagement of retired hands has been enhanced to 65 years from 62 years.

Federation received grievances from the re-engaged retired hands with regard to non-payment of their legitimate dues as mentioned below:-

The re-engaged retired employees, when they work on continuous duty roster under HOER, they are denied payment of salary for performing extra hours of work beyond duty roster hours (i.e. 12 hours duty against duty hours of 8 hours).

When the retired employee is sent out of his headquarter station for performing duties at out station, he is denied payment of TA (daily allowance) on the plea that the Railway Board has not given any direction for payment of T.A., in such eventualities while payment of remuneration only is allowed as per Railway Board’s letter dated 16/10/2017.

perusal of above two points reveal that even the re-engaged retired hands, like other Railway staff, are required to be governed by the provision of HOER and when they are made to perform 12 hours duty against the rostered 8 hours, they should be paid additional wages as Over Time Allowance Similar;y, when these retired staff are sent out of their headquarters for performing duties, they should be paid Travelling Allowance (Daily Allowance) similar to the serving staff based on the rate of last basic pay drawn.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the above valid points and issue instructions to the zonal Railway etc., for payment of Over Time Allowance and the Travelling Allowance (daily allowance) to the retired re-engaged staff similar to serving staff.

A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully

S/d,

Implementation of cadre restructuring in the gazetted setup of IT cadre on Indian Railways

NFIR

Implementation of cadre restructuring in the gazetted setup of IT cadre on Indian Railways

No I/8/CRC/12/IT

Dated: 01/06/2018

The Financial Commissioner (Railways),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

The Member Staff
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of cadre restructuring in the gazetted setup of IT cadre on Indian Railways-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s proposal received vide letter No. 2011/AC-II/37/3 dated 24/03/2015 addressed to Federations.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/2/Part VI dated 31/03/2015.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. I/8/CRC/12/IT dated 08/11/2017, 11/12/2017 &12/02/2018.

Federation vide its letter dated 12/02/2018 invited kind attention of the Railway Board to the issue relating to cadre restructuring in the Gazetted set up of IT cadre over Indian Railways.

While enclosing copy of NFIR’s letter No. I/8/CRC/12/IT dated 12/02/2018, Federation reiterates below following vital points for taking expeditious decision for granting cadre restructuring/upgradation to the gazetted set up of IT cadre in Railways.

  • With reference to the proposal of Railway Board vide letter dated 24/03/2015, NFIR vide its letters dated 26/03/2015 and 31/03/2015 had furnished detailed comments on draft report of the Committee of IT cadre constituted by the Board for gazetted and non-gazetted cadres. Thereafter the Railway Board though issued half-baked and erroneous orders vide letter No. 2016/AC-II (CC)/37/9 dated 18/04/2017 for non-gazetted IT cadre, which was disputed by NFIR vide letter 08/11/2017. However, there has been no finality on cadre restructuring of gazetted set up of IT cadre till date.
  • The series of communications sent by the Federation, duly highlighting 7th CPC recommendations along with model cadre structure of EDP Staff has again been highlighted to the Railway Ministry vide NFIR’s letter dated 11/12/2017 with request to re-visit the existing instructions and formulate the structure, but however there has been no response from Railway Board.
  • Federation also brought to the notice of Railway Ministry, the action initiated by the DoP&T (OM dated 17/10/2016) relating to the implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC, but the Federation is still unaware as to what proposal/comments have been made available by the Railway Ministry to the DoP&T. Federation would like to have a copy of the comments for pursuing the matter further and to provide additional material/comments where necessary.
  • Federation also requested the Railway Board for placement of 15% of JA Grade Posts of IT cadre in GP 8700 and 64 JA Grade Posts in the Zones & Production Units based on the recommendations of the report of EDs Committee, unfortunately, nothing has been done in this regard also.
  • Federation’s suggestions for provision of 1 SAG post in each Zone & Production Unit, considering the technological advancement/fast changes taking place in this field, has also not been considered as there has been no response yet.
  • Federation’s another suggestion for provision of atleast 26 posts in ICF on par with RCF, Kapurthala is also yet to be considered.

NFIR, therefore once again requests the Railway Board (FC & MS) to kindly consider the above merits as well the comments furnished earlier through communications cited under reference and take expeditious action for granting cadre restructuring and upgradation for IT cadre (Gazetted) as recommended by 7th CPC as well the EDs’ Committee report. Copies of documents sent to the DoP&T may kindly be made available to the Federation early.

DA/One

Indian Railways revises Passenger Reservation Form to extend the VIKALP option to passengers booking tickets through reservation windows

Ministry of Railways
Indian Railways revises Passenger Reservation Form to extend the VIKALP option to passengers booking tickets through reservation windows

Also, mentioning Aadhar number is made optional for the passengers

31 MAY 2018

Ministry of Railways has revised its passenger reservation form to benefit the passengers booking tickets through PRS Counters across the nation. Now, the VIKALP scheme option will also be available on booking made through reservation windows and not just through online bookings.

In the revised reservation form, passengers are given an option either to avail the option of VIKALP scheme or not to avail it, where they may give their preference by ticking the column Yes or No. If the option of VIKALP is availed by passengers, he/she would have to mark his/her choice of alternate train departing within 12 hours, 24 hours, 48 hours. Also, passenger is given an optional choice to mention their Aadhar number in the reservation form.

It is noteworthy that with a view to provide confirmed accommodation to waitlisted passengers and also to ensure optimal utilisation of available accommodation, a scheme called Alternate Train Accommodation Scheme – VIKALP had been conceptualised and was introduced w.e.f. 01.11.2015 initially only for the tickets booked through internet as a pilot project for six months, on Delhi-Lucknow and Delhi-Jammu sectors of Northern Railway. Later on this scheme was extended in all sectors across Indian Railways. In this scheme, wait listed passengers of a train can opt for confirmed accommodation in alternate trains.

Now, the benefit of Vikalp option has also been made available through PRS counters and not just online bookings.

Railways: Appointment on Compassionate Grounds: 2nd Wife Policy Letter

Railways: Appointment on Compassionate Grounds: 2nd Wife Policy Letter

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
RAILWAY BOARD

RBE No.42/2018

New Delhi, dated 21.03.2018

The General Manager(P)
All Indian Railways & PUs.

Sub: Appointment on Compassionate Ground

The issue Of considering appointment on compassionate grounds(CG) to sons/daughters, born through Other than first legally married wife has been engaging the attention of this Ministry for quite some time, in the backdrop Of partial quashing of CG related instructions contained in this Ministry’s letter dated 02.01.1992 regarding such appointments, by the Hon’ble High Court/Calcutta in the case(WPCT 20 of 2009) Namita Goldar & Ors. Vs 1301 & Others.

2. In this regard, Railway Board has taken into account following observations of the Hon’ble Supreme Court, on the subject of CG appointment, in the case of State Bank of India & another Vs Rajkumar, (Civil appeal No. 1641 of 2010):

“it is now well settled that appointment on compassionate grounds is not a source of recruitment. On the other hand it is an exception to the general rule that recruitment to public services should be on the basis of merit, by an open invitation providing equal opportunity to al/ eligible persons to participate in the selection process. The dependants of employees, who die in harness, do not have any special claim or right to employment, except by way of the concession that may be extended by the employer under the Rules Or by a separate scheme, to enable the family of the deceased to get over the sudden financial crisis. The claim for compassionate appointment is, therefore, traceable only to the scheme framed by the employer for such employment and there is no right whatsoever Out side such scheme….”.

3. Railway Board has also taken into account following observation of Hon’ble High Court of Jharkhand (Ranchi) in writ petition No. WP(S) 16 of 2014 (pronounced on 24.07.2014) “”Compassionate appointment is a matter of policy of the employer and the employer cannot be compelled to provide compassionate appointment contrary to its policy/scheme. When there is specific circular which clearly provides that the children of second marriage of the employee shall not be eligible for compassionate appointment, no direction can be issued to the respondents to consider the case of the petitioner.”

4. The matter has been examined and in Supersession Of this Ministry’s letter dated 02.01.1992 issued under RBE No. 01/1992 and No. dated 03.04.2013, it has been decided that the first right of being considered for compassionate grounds appointment is vested, in cases Of death Of Railway servants while in service, with the legally wedded surviving widow provided she has not remarried at the time of making request for appointments on compassionate grounds. It is clarified that in cases of those Railway Servants who are governed by the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, there can only be one legally wedded wife/widow, as second marriage, while spouse is living, is void/voidable in view of the Section 5(1) read with Section 11 of the Act. In this respect, Railway Board’s letter NO. GS 1-1 dated 10.04.1992 connects.

5. If aforementioned legally wedded surviving widow does not want herself to be considered for compassionate grounds appointment, she can nominate, for CG appointment, a “bread winner” for the family from amongst the following:

(a) In cases of those Railway Servants who are governed by the Hindu Marriage Act, 1955. Son(including adopted son); or daughter(including widowed/ adopted/ married/divorced daughter). However, if such Railway Servant has left sons/daughters, who have been treated as legitimate Or deemed to be legitimate, under Section 16 of Hindu Marriage Act, 1955, neither widow can nominate them as bread winner for CG appointment nor such sons/daughters can claim CG appointment.

(b) In cases Of those Railway Servants who are governed by their respective Personal Laws: Son(including adopted son); Or daughter(including widowed/ adopted/ married/divorced daughter).

However, if such Railway Servant has left sons/daughters through second/subsequent legally valid marriages, i.e. other than through first wife and deceased Railway Servant have failed to Obtain requisite permission for such second/subsequent marriage as required under section 21 (relating to restrictions regarding marriage) Of the Railway Services (Conduct) Rules, 1966, neither first widow/second/subsequent widow can nominate such sons/daughters as bread winner for CG appointment nor such sons/daughters can claim CG appointment. Moreover, such Second/subsequent widow also would not have any right to seek compassionate grounds appointment.

6. All Zonal Railway/PUs/Units are directed to decide cases accordingly.

Please acknowledge receipt.
