Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to NFIR’s PNM Agenda Item No.24/2017 wherein it has been requested to kindly issue clarificatory instructions to the Zonal Railways in general and South Western Railway in particular to arrange payment of Over Time Allowance to the Sr. Technicians GP 4200/ Level-6 and. other eligible staff. While the subject could not be discussed in the PNM meeting held on 25th /26th April, 2019 due to paucity of time, the Official Side conveyed as follows :-
“South Western Railway has been asked to comment on the status of the demand made by the Federation. No reply received yet. Reminder sent on 26/03/2019.”
Federation desires to reiterate that already considerable delay has taken in the matter as the first reference in this case was sent to the Railway Board by the Federation in August, 2016, therefore there is need to obtain facts from the South Western Railway immediately on priority.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly expedite and see that instructions are issued to the Zonal Railways including South Western Railway to ensure payment of OT Allowance to Sr. Technicians etc., as raised in the PNM agenda. A copy of instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.
