Dear Comrades,

Sub: Deferring of “Work To Rule”, scheduled from 11th December, 2018

We have already briefed you regarding our discussions held with the Member Staff, Railway Board, and other officials of the Railway Board, on 4th December, 2018, brief of the discussions held on 4th and 5th December, 2018, is also enclosed herewith:-

The Member Staff, Railway Board, had persistently requested us and also sent us a communication (Railway Board’s letter No.2018/E(LR)II/NM 1-9 dated 05.12.2018) in writing that the items raised by AIRF are under very active consideration of the Railway Board, but need some time, therefore, we should withdraw our call of “Work To Rule”, scheduled from 11th December, 2018.

After prolonged discussions, between the Railway Board as well as with the Zonal General Secretaries, and in consultation with the President AIRF, it has been decided that, the proposed call of “Work To Rule”, scheduled from 11th December, 2018, should be deferred for the time being and we should wait for some time for the outcome of the assurances given by the Railway Board.

I know that, all of you had worked round-the-clock for mobilizing the Railwaymen to prepare them for “Work To Rule”. Now, it has become more important to reach each and every Railwayman for thanking them for creating the tempo as well as we should also inform them about the assurances given by the Railway Board, based on the brief of 4-5 December, 2018, sent to you.

Dated: December 4, 2018

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades,

Sub: Brief of the meeting held today with the Member Staff, Railway Board, to discuss the important issues raised by AIRF with the Railway Board

A meeting was held today with the Member Staff, Railway Board, to discuss the vital issues raised by AIRF with the Railway Board, wherein the following deliberations took place:-

Implementation of four grade structure, in the ratio of 10:20:20:50, in the case of Trackmen/ Track Maintainers – Member Staff informed that, four grade structure, in the ratio of 10:20:20:50, is approved by the Full Board, and the file was put-up to Hon’ble MR for his approval. Hon’ble MR wanted certain clarifications from the Engineering Directorate, and the same was submitted by the said Directorate. This will be finalized after arrival of Hon’ble MR who is busy in the state elections.

Revision of the rates of Running Allowance and other Allowances related to Running Staff – After lengthy discussions; the Member Staff informed that, the file is put-up to Hon’ble MR for his approval, and after his approval, the file would be sent to the MoF. The Member Staff further informed that, the matter is vigorously pursued by him with the MoF.

Continuance of the LARSGESS – The Official Side informed that, after consultation with the Solicitor General, original scheme would be implemented after submitting it to the court. The court has given time for submitting the final result.

Advancement of prospects of the staff working in erstwhile GP Rs.1800 and GP Rs.4600 – After prolonged discussion, the Member Staff agreed that, there is stagnation of the staff working in erstwhile GP Rs.1800. Federation (AIRF) pointed out that, due to various surrenders in Grade III Technicians as well as other cadres, the present incumbents working in erstwhile GP Rs.1800 are not getting promotions. Due to direct recruitment in GP Rs.4600, people are not having any promotional prospects as there are no grades in GP Rs.4800 and GP Rs.5400. Federation(AIRF) wanted that, as was done on previous occasion, 50% of Direct Recruitment vacancies should be thrown open for promotion for the staff working in erstwhile GP Rs.1800, and also GP Rs.4800 and GP Rs.5400 SSEs and Sr. Supervisors should be made Gazetted.

Non-revision of rates of Incentive Bonus/Bonus Factor and PCO Allowance paid to Technical Staff and Supervisors of the PUs and Maintenance Workshops – The Committee appointed by the Railway Board is expected to submit its report within a month’s time, and then only; the item will be finalized.

Upgradation of the Apex level of Group ‘C’ to Group ‘B’ – AIRF insisted that, powers are vested with the Railway Board to grant upgradation for the apex grade Supervisors to Group ‘B’. This was also confirmed by the Finance Secretary(Exp.) on the previous occasion, and the minutes of the said meeting given to the Railway Board. In spite of that, the matter is dragged by the Railway Board by sending proposal to the MoF. The Federation(AIRF) insisted that, decision should be taken at the Railway Board level itself. Member Staff directed the AM(S) to put-up all the particulars, including minutes of the Cabinet Secretary, for taking a decision. The Federation(AIRF) insisted that, as per the Act and Codal Provisions as well as Business Rules, the powers are vested in the Railway Ministry and they should not run to the DoP&T and MoF.

Regularization of the Act Apprentices in Railways – AIRF demanded that, all the Act Apprentices imparted training in the Railways should be absorbed in the Railways. It was explained to the Member Staff that the orders were available previously, but unfortunately, Board have issued orders and implemented the orders with back date, depriving the Act Apprentices from the absorption in the Railways. The Federation demanded that, new Apprentices Act, passed by the Parliament, has given full powers to decide procedure for absorption of these Act Apprentices. Federation demanded that, Screening Type system should be adopted for absorption of the Act Apprentices. Member Staff agreed to study the problem after finalization of the present RRC examination.

It is worth-mentioning here that, there will also be another round of discussions with the Member Staff, Railway Board, tomorrow, i.e. on 5th December, 2018, and the outcome of the said meeting shall also be communicated to all of you.

With Fraternal Greetings,

Yours faithfully,

(v) GS/NFIR’s personal discussion with CRB on 25/10/2018.

Kind attention is invited to GS/NFIR’s letter of even number dated 03rd October, 2018 to CRB (copy enclosed).

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.

Yours faithfully,

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

Mutual Transfer involving employees working in two different grades

Mutual Transfers permitted between staff in two different grades and not in intermediate grades

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF  RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No. E(NG)I-2018/TR/8

New Delhi, Dated: 26.10.2018

The General Manager (P),
All Indian Railways/PUs,
New Delhi.

Sub:- Mutual Transfer involving employees working in two different grades.

In terms of para 310 of IREM Vol. I 1989 Edition, Railway Servants can seek mutual transfer in the corresponding cadre of two Divisions/Offices/Railways and retain the seniority of the junior employees in their respective new units. The procedure for mutual transfer have recently been further simplified vide:-

(i) Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2017/TR/24 dated 22.09.2017 (RBE No. 131/2017) which delegates powers to Divisional Railway Managers in respect of mutual transfer, and

(ii) Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2017/TR/19 dated 06.07.2018 (RBE No. 99/2018) which enabled employees working in Level-I (GP Rs. 1800) belonging to any department/cadre to go on Mutual Exchange basis transfer with another employee working in Level-I (GP Rs. 1800) irrespective of cadre.

2. With a view to further enable employees to seek Mutual Exchange Transfer and in view of clarifications sought by some Zonal Railways in this regard and the demand of both and Federation e.g. NFIR and AIRF, Board have considered the matter. It has been decided that Mutual Transfers may also be permitted between staff in two different grades but only in the recruitment grade of the cadre and not in intermediate grades.

3. Both the employees seeking mutual exchange shall have to give a written undertaking accepting reversion unconditionally and willingly in their own interest to the recruitment grade and bottom seniority in their respective new Unit in order to avoid future litigation. The expression mentioned in preceding lines, should necessarily be incorporated in the application submitted by the employee concerned. The “Note” below para 2(b)(iii) of Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2017/TR/24 dated 22.09.2017 as mentioned in para 1 above stands deleted.

4. Other terms and conditions for mutual exchange including community restrictions contained in Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2004/TR/16 dated 14.08.2017 and 22.10.2007 remain.

Please acknowledge receipt.

Hindi version will follow.
