Hon’ble Central Administrative Tribunal vide their orders dated 28.09.2017 in O.A.No.3290/2017 (Indian Railway Medical Services Association & Anr vs DOP&T & Anr) allowed the relief in terms of the judgement of Hon’ble Delhi High Court in W.P.(C ) No: 4067/2014. The matter was accordingly referred to DOP&T.

4. DOP&T have considered the issue in consultation with Department of Expenditure and conveyed their non-objection to the Ministry of Railways to extend NFU benefits to IRMS doctors. ‘Accordingly, Ministry of Railways have decided to grant the benefit of Non-Functional Upgradation CNFU Scheme as applicable to Organized Group ‘A’ services of Railways to IRMS Officers as per the detailed terms and conditions as have been in vogue from time to time after introduction of the scheme. Accordingly, grant of higher scale / benefits under the scheme would be admissible w.e.f. 1.1.2006, where due and admissible, as provided in the original instructions under reference.

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.

During NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/l4-11-2017, Federation raised the issue of the condition of Railway Quarters outside agenda and stated that the condition of quarters continue to remain deplorable. Federation further said that the deteriorated condition of Railway quarters and the Railway colonies is on account of non-allotment of adequate funds and non-availability of artisan and other support staff under the JEs/SSEs (Works). Federation also stated that the deterioration of conditions has been causing severe hardships to the staff and their families living in the quarters.

Railway Board during NFIR’s PNM meeting held on 10/11-5-2018 conveyed following position through Action Taken Statement delivered to the Federation in the meeting:-

“Railway is carrying out repairs and maintenance of quarters along with constructions of new quarters on regular basis and this is ongoing process. Efforts are being made to repair more number of quarters each year with more fund allocation under demand No. 11 (500). For repair and maintenance of residential buildings, Rs. 1790 Cr. (RE) were allotted in year 2017-18 under Demand No. 11 (500). In the year 2018-19, this amount has been increased to Rs. 1899 crores. A Committee was constituted on comprehensive Housing Policy to examine, inter-alia, upkeep and maintenance of colonies as well. The Committee submitted its report on 3110112018. Based on the recommendation of Committee, Board inter-alia has approved the following for implementation in phased
manner:-

(i) For upkeep and maintenance of Railway colonies, setting up of IT based call centres at location of maintenance redressal.
(ii) Setting up of a separate wing for maintenance of infrastructure not related directly with operations. Delhi Division is to undertake this project on pilot basis.

(iii) Fixing of periodicity and scale/schedule of Renovation and maintenance in line with CPWD (CPWD Portal) and practices.

(iv) Specification of Fixtures and Replacement items also need to be in line with CPWD Practice.

(v) Expenditure in PU 32 is to be maximized to 85%. Further PU 32 is to be splitted as under:-

a. PU32A for Type I & II.
b. PU32B for Type III and IV and
c. PU32C for Type V and above houses.

Instructions in this regard have been issued to all Zonal Railways.

Further, as per the full Board’s decision taken in the meeting held on 05/10/2017 on maintenance of service buildings and colonies, all Zonal Railways have been asked to adopt user compliance for satisfactory completion of works in service buildings and colonies and to outsource maintenance work for selected colonies.

It may be seen from the above that substantial efforts are being made by Railways to improve the maintenance of Railway colonies and in the years to come the outcome of these steps will be visible”.

Above position is conveyed to the affiliates for offering views to the Federation soon,taking into account ground reality and holding discussions with the concerned staff and authorities.

Yours fraternally,

Minimum educational qualification for open market recruitment to the post of Pharmacist Gr.III in the Medical Department on the Railways

Minimum educational qualification for open market recruitment to the post of Pharmacist Gr.III in the Medical Department on the Railways

No.II/1/2018

Dated: 08/05/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Minimum educational qualification for open market recruitment to the post of Pharmacist Gr.III in the Medical Department on the Railways.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No.E(NG)II/2001/RR-1/45 dated 22/05/2015 (RBE No.49/2015) and 05/04/2018 (RBE No.54/2018)

Federation desires to bring to the notice of Railway Board that the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (CGHS Division) vide Notification dated 11th March, 2015, circulated in the Gazette of India published weekly (March 8 – March 14-2015, at New Delhi), issued recruitment rules with the approval of the President. citing following educational and other qualification for direct recruitment of Pharmacists from open market in supercession of all previous instructions to be followed by the other Central Ministries and the Central Government Health Scheme Organization:-

(i) 12th Class Pass with Science subjects (Physics, Chemistry and Biology), or equivalent from a recognized Board or University.

(ii) Diploma in Pharmacy from recognized institution and registered as Pharmacist under the Pharmacy Act, 1948; and

(iii) Two years’ experience as Pharmacist in any recognized Hospital or Pharmacy after duly registered as Pharmacist under the Pharmacy Act, 1948; and

OR

(i) Bachelor Degree in Pharmacy (B. Pharm.) from a recognized University or equivalent; and

(ii) Registered as a Pharmacist under the Pharmacy Act, 1948.

Federation is surprised to note that the Railway Board vide letter No. E(NG)II/2001/RR-1/45 dated 22/05/2015 (RBE No. 49/2015) had issued instructions after reviewing the minimum educational qualification for direct recruitment to the posts of various categories in the Medical Department on the Railways in consultation with the Health Directorate of Railway Ministry decided to prescribe the qualification for recruitment of Pharmacists Gr. III (PB-1/GP 2800) as mentioned below of course without discussing with the Federation.

“10+2 in Science or its equivalent with 02 (two) years Diploma in Pharmacy and registration with Pharmacy Council of India or registration with State Pharmacy Council”
Federation has also come across instructions issued by the Railway Board vide letter No.E(NG)II/2001/RR-1/45 dated 05/04/2018 (RBE No.54/2018) wherein the minimum educational qualification for recruitment of Pharmacists Gr.III from open market in the Medical Department on the Railways have been reviewed arbitraily, without consultations with the Federations. The revised educational qualification for recruitment to the post of Pharmacist Gr.III in Railways is as follows:-

“10+2 in Science or its equivalent with Diploma in Pharmacy from recognized institution and registered as Pharmacist under the Pharmacy Act, 1948.

OR

Bachelor Degree in Pharmacy (B.Pharma) from a recognized University or equivalent and Registered as a Pharmacist under the Pharmacy Act 1948.”

Federation is surprised to note that the Railway Board while reviewing the educational qualification for the post of Pharmacist has totally ignored the Gazette Notification issued by the Government of India as published by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, the nodal Ministry and issued its own instructions. This action of the Railway Board in therefore not justified.

In this context, Federation desires to mention that in the Board’s letter dated 05/04/2018 (in Para 2) it has been discussed by the Board with both the recognized Federations. In this context, NFIR desires to clarify that the NFIR has never agreed for review of qualification for the post of Pharmacists Gr. III only. On the other hand Federation had urged the Railway Ministry to consider upgradation of the posts with respect to upgrading the Pay Scale/Pay Level which commensurate with the Pay Scales/Structure given to the other categories having Degree qualification, accordingly the Pharmacist after review of educational qualification should have been placed in erstwhile GP 4600/Level-7. In this connection, our letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC/CORRES/Pt. V dated 27/05/2015 and 28/05/2015 addressed to the Secretary, 7th CPC and the Secretary (E), Railway Board demanding improvement in the entry qualification with improved Pay Scale commensurating with the improved and upgraded educational and technical qualification for the post of Pharmacist may be connected. However, copies of Federation’s letters dated 27/05/2015 and 28/05/2015 are enclosed for ready reference.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to withdraw its instructions issued vide letter dated 05/04/2018 (RBE No. 54/2018) and convene a meeting with the Federation to discuss the subject matter for finding an amicable solution.

Federation may be replied of the action taken on this letter.

DA/As above

Yours faithfully,

S/d,

NFIR – Reduction of Duty Hours and revision of classification of Engineering & Traffic Gate-man as “Continuous”

NFIR – Reduction of Duty Hours and revision of classification of Engineering & Traffic Gate-man as “Continuous”

No.IV/HOER/3/2006 (DC)/HPC

Dated: 08/05/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Reduction of Duty Hours and revision of classification of Engineering & Traffic Gate-man as “Continuous”-reg.

Ref:
(i) NFIR’s PNM Item No.31/2015 & 34/2016.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No.IV/HOER/4 dated 04/05/2017 & 2/05/2017

Through the Action Taken Statement (during NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14-11-2017) it was conveyed that instructions have been issued vide letter No. 2012/E(LL)/HER/23 dated 30/09/2016 to conduct job analysis on duty hours of Gate Keepers.

In this connection, Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to its PNM Agenda Item No.31/2015 wherein NFIR demanded that duty hours of all safety category staff in EI category, specially the Gate Keeper should be reduced irrespective of the distance of quarter/residence of the employee from the work place (Para 5.5.5 of the recommendations of High Power Committee/R&S refers). Federation also highlighted Para 5.5.6 of the same report wherein the HPC (R&S) had recommended that on high density routes where the number of trains in each direction are more than 72 (on double line sections) or more than 24 (on singly line sections) no safety category staff (excepting the shunting staff) should be classified as EI category.

Federation conveys that the instructions issued by the Railway Board vide letter dated 30th September, 2016 asking the Zonal Railway Administration to conduct “factual job analysis” for deciding classification/duty hours of Gate Keepers, is not enough as there has been no positive results though over 1 1/2 years have passed.

Apart from above, Federation vide its letters dated 04/05/2017 & 24/05/2017 brought cases of Gate Keepers (Engineering) who are forced to perform 12 hours duty continuously day or night. Federation however feels sad to mention that there has been no response from the Railway Board so far.

NFIR, therefore once again urges upon the Railway Board to look into the genuine demand for reduction of duty and revision of classification of Engineering and Traffic Gate Keepers as “continuous” under HOER and issue instructions to the Zonal Railways accordingly as recommended by the HPC/R&S. A copy of instructions issued may be endrosed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
