Issuance of Special Passes on Medical grounds for follow-up medical treatment in outstation Hospitals: Railway Board Order

RBE No. 178/2018

Sub: Issuance of Special Passes on Medical grounds for follow-up medical treatment in outstation Hospitals.

It has been brought to the notice of Board that difficulties are being faced by serving/retired railway employees & their family members due to the present practice or issuing of Special Passes on medical grounds for follow-up medical treatment. Such passes are being issued just a few days before the due date of visit to specialized hospitals located in outstations. Due to this practice, the beneficiaries of such Special Passes are unable to secure confirmed advance reservation.

2. The matter has been examined in consultation with Health Dte. of the Ministry of Railways. Keeping in view the fact that the beneficiaries of such passes are normally those who are suffering from serious ailments like cancer, renal failure, heart ailments, etc. and in order to facilitate securing of advance reservation for them, it has been decided to stipulate the following procedure for issuing of Special Passes [under Schedule VII of Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 (Second Edition 1993) for follow-up medical treatment:-

(i) The Competent Medical Officer in the Railway Hospital will issue necessary prescription on the basis of follow-up visit advice recorded by the outstation Hospital, as and when approached by the beneficiary, without waiting for the due date for follow-up visit to come nearer. In the said prescription, the period of travel validity (which is to be endorsed on the pass) must be indicated clearly, which shall be one week i.e. 7 days before and 21 days after the clue date of visit. For example, If a beneficiary has to reach a Hospital in Mumbai for follow-up treatment on 8th December 2018, the Medical Officer concerned should write in the prescription: “Special Pass valid for travel from 1st Dec, 2018 to 29th Dcc, 2018 may be issued.”

(ii) The PASS Issuing Authorities, on the basis of Aforementioned prescription and recommendation will issue Special Pass upto 5 months in advance endorsing thereon the travel validity period as “Valid for travel from __/__/_____ to __/__/_____” (i.e. the dates as recommended in the prescription).

3. Moreover, representations are also being received in Board’s office. from the beneficiaries of Special Passes issued on medical grounds complaining of delays in issue of such passes. In this context, the Railways are directed to sensitize the concerned pass issuing officials to issue the Special Passes on medical grounds on the very same day of receipt-of the application in case of serious ailments and at the most, next day in all other cases.

4. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of Ministry of Railways;

Rest Rules for Running Staff – AIRF Reference to Railway Board

Rest Rules for Running Staff – AIRF Reference to Railway Board

No.AIRF/PNM/20/2009

Dated: August 27, 2018

The Member Staff,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Rest Rules for Running Staff

Ref.: Railway Board’s letters No.E(LL)/2009/HER/1 dated 17.07.2018 and 02.08.2018

Pursuant to discussions held with AIRF, during the last PNM Meeting, held on 21-22 June, 2018, Railway Board vide their letter No.E(LL)/2009/HER/1 dated 17.07.2018 had issued instructions that, Call Books on Running Staff should be served upon only after completion of 16 hours rest at Headquarters and after completion of 8 hours at outstation.

It is, however, quite unfortunate that, Railway Board vide their subsequent letter dated 02.08.2018 have pended the said instructions till adequate number of Running Staff becomes available to fill-up large-number of existing vacancies. This is gross violation of bilateral negotiated settlement with the federation.

AIRF, therefore, desires that, orders of pending the instructions, issued vide Railway Board’s letter dated ibid dated 17.07.2018 be withdrawn immediately in the larger interest of industrial harmony.

This may be treated as “Most Urgent”.

Yours faithfully,

The General Secretary,
All India Railwaymen Federation,

New Delhi- 110055.

Sub: Granting promotion opportunity as JE against 25% intermediate Apprentice Quota to those Technicians initially appointed as Technician-III on compassionate grounds – (PNM/ AIRF Item No.25/2011 and PNM/NFIR Item No.38/2015- agenda sent to Railway Board on 11.06.2015) – reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to Item No.25/2011 of PNMI AIRF and Item N0.38/2015 of PNM/NFIR on the above subject and to state that the matter has been further deliberated upon in the light of the last round of discussion with both the Federations in the respective PNMs. It may be recollected that while AIRF have expressed their reservation on Board’s proposal sent to both the Federations for comments vide letter of even number dated 16.03.2015, NFIR have completely rejected the same. In view of this, it was decided that Board’s proposal referred to above may be dropped and status-quo may be maintained. The Federation were informed accordingly vide letter of even number dated 28.03.2016.

It is felt that both the Federations should encourage those who are appointed on Compassionate Grounds as Trainee Artisans to appear in RDAT, so that they have a formal qualification, which would be better for their own future also.

Yours faithfully,

Appointment on compassionate grounds – NFIR

Appointment on Compassionate Grounds – NFIR Railway Board Orders

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
RAILWAY BOARD

RBE No.42/2018

No.E(NG)II/2018/RC-1/5

New Delhi, dated 21.03.2018

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

 

Sub: Appointment on compassionate grounds.

 

The issue of considering appointment of 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 UOI & Others.

 

2. In this reard, 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 all 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. E(NG)II/2012/RC-1/21 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 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. E(D&A) 92 GS 1-1 dated 10.04.1992 connects.

 

5. If aforementioned legally wedded suriving 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.

(COMMERCIAL CIRCULAR NO. 72 OF 2017)

Sub: Provision of seats for TTEs/Conductors.

The matter has been further reviewed keeping in view the trains which have been introduced subsequently e,g, Duronto, Humsafar, Suvidha Special trains etc. Moreover, the capacity of 3AC conventional coaches is 64 berths whereas that of LHB 3AC coaches is 72 berths and that of 3E coaches is 78 berths & hence 3E coaches should be considered at par with 3AC coaches. Accordingly, it has been decided to earmark the following accommodation for onboard Ticket Checking Staff & RPF/GRP:-

a. Mail/Express trains with sleeping accommodation and leg-wise manning (Covering normal Mail/Express trains, Mahamana etc.)

(i) Berth No. 5 in A-1 Coach only for Conductor manning 1st AC/ AC 2 tier/First Class coaches.
(ii) Berth No. 7 in B-1/ BE-1 Coach only for TTE manning AC3 tier/3E coaches.
(iii) Berth No. 7 in alternate sleeper class coaches for TTEs manning Sleeper Class coaches.

b. Mail/Express trains with sleeping accommodation and end to end manning (covering Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto type trains)

(i) Berth No. 5 in A-1 Coach for TS manning 1st AC and 2nd AC coaches.
(ii) Berth No. 7 in B-1, B-3, B-5, & B-7 coaches of Dy. TS manning AC-2/3-tier coaches. In case of 3E, similar arrangements should be made in BE-1, BE-4 and BE-7 or G-1, G-3, G-5 & G-7 coaches in case of Garib Rath type trains.

c. Mail/Express trains with sitting accommodation and end to end manning. (Shatabdi type trains)

(ii) Seat No.1 in alternate Chair Car coach.
(iii) In case composite coach with sitting and sleeping accommodation is attahced, seat no.1 in the sitting portion of the composite coach should be earmarked, for the ticket checking staff.

e. Accommodation for RPF/GRP: One side lower berth (berth no. 63 in coach S1) may be earmarked in sleeper class coach in the entire train in which this staff is travelling. To make it clearer, if the train is being escorted by GRP, one berth will be earmarked for GRP and in case the train is escorted by RPF, one berth in sleeper class will be earmarked for RPF. In case no RPF/GRP is escorting the train, no accommodation will be earmarked for them.

2. The number of berths/seats to be earmarked in a train for onboard ticket checking staff will be keeping in view the composition of the train. In case the number of staff manning a train on regular basis (working as per roster) is less, the number of berths/seats to be earmarked for onboard ticket checking staff can be reduced and the same can be reviewed also subsequently based on manning on regular basis (working as per roster) subject to maximum yardstick indicated above. In the train also the number of berths/seats to be utilized by the onboard ticket checking staff will be equal to the number of staff and the berths/seats in excess will be released to RAC or other passengers.
