Important points requiring priority attention for redressal

(ii) In most of the cases, the replies to Federation's letters are not sent. Machinery needs to be tightened for ensuring prompt replies to Federation's letters.

(a) Replacement GP 4600/- with GP 4800/- (for SSEs, Inspectors/Supervisors etc).
(b) Stepping up of pay of Loco inspectors inducted prior to 01/01/2006.

(g) Railway Board's norms for creation of posts of Helpers, ESMs, SSEs/JEs (Signal) not implemented. PNM agreement on item No. 14/2010 not implemented.

(iv) Running Staff Allowances issues not yet resolved. Federation's proposal for revision of Kilometrage rates need to be accepted duly retaining pay element of 55 & 30% for retirement and other purposes.

(v) Merger of Technicians Grade-II with Grade-I:- While reaching an agreement on 22nd July 2016 on revision of percentages of Technicians, the Railway Board had assured to process the merger proposal with Ministry of Finance for obtaining clearance. Though 1% years has passed, their been no finality. This may kindly be expedited.

(vi) Upgradation of Apex level Group 'C' posts to Group 'B' Gazetted(3335 posts):- Although agreed for upgrading the posts, no orders have been issued even after a lapse officious years. This needs to be expedited on top priority.

(vii) Vacancies continued to remain unfilled, leading additional burden on staff. Action be taken to fill all vacancies at the earliest.

(viii) Outsourcing of activities, closure of establishments etc., is being resorted to indiscriminately, without consultations and without realizing the adverse effects on efficiency. These are required to be reviewed.

(ix) Revision of designations:- NFIR's proposals not yet considered.

(xii) Continuation of LARGENESS:- Expeditious action may kindly be taken for continuance of LARGENESS in the light of Supreme Court's Order giving free hand to Railway Ministry to re-visit the Scheme and take conscious decision. It needs to be appreciated that the Scheme has been introduced in public interest as well the personal safety of staff working in the safety categories, therefore it should be continued and Board's letter dated 27/10/2017 may also be withdrawn.

(xiii) Inter Railway request transfer applications:- In the case of ex-servicemen re-employed in Railways, the 5 years minimum service condition needs to be relaxed as demanded by federation vide its PNM agenda item. This subject was also discussed by the Federation with CRB on 05/01/2018, consequently, the CRB has agreed to relax, but however, instructions have not been issued.
