Ref.: Board’s letter Nos.2010/Tele/11(2)/2Pt.II dated 18.09.2017 & 21.12.2018
To enhance manpower productivity, Board has approved the proposal to encompass all railway personnel under the scope of CUG mobile scheme on Indian Railways by providing CUG connection to all Railway employees. Additional CUG connections are to be provided under Plan ‘C’, RCIL has been mandated to finalise the tender with revised requirements through reverse auction.
2. In the meantime, all departments should advise the Railway’s CUG coordinator for requirement of additional SIMs based on staff on roll. This is to be certified by the Personnel department. Railway’s CUG coordinator shall requisition the SIMs from RCIL/TSP and hand over the same to the respective department for further distribution once received from RCIL. In case of surrendering of SIM on account of attrition (retirement/ transfer), advice of the same should be sent by the concerned nodal officer of the department to the CUG coordinator. No dues certificate at the time of retirement for settlement and LPC at the time of transfer should necessarily have CUG surrender as a precondition.
3. It will be the responsibility of each department to maintain records for CUG SIMs provided to their users along with their Employee Numbers and provide the details in the prescribed format covering Proof of Identity and Proof of Address details as per TRAI guidelines. This information shall be shared quarterly with Railway’s CUG coordinator for onward submission to RCIL/TSP.
4. Prevention of any unauthorised issue of CUG connection and its use will be ensured by the concerned department. For this purpose, an authorised official must be nominated in each department.
5. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.
