Sub.: Contribution to Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund(PMNRF) : COVID-19 Epidemic.
…..
As you are aware, our country is threatened with the spread of COVID-19 epidemic which has already been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization. This is one of the worst and most unprecedented disaster faced by our nation. Resultantly, a National Disaster has been declared leading to invocation of statutory provisions of Disaster Management Act, 2005 which has already been conveyed by Railway Board’s two letters issued vide No. 2020/Safety(DM)/6/14 dated 25.03.2020.
2. Board has taken note of the fact that the likely intensity and spread of disease necessitate mobilization of all possible help and contribution from every source. Therefore, those of us who are more fortunately placed have a very special responsibility in this hour of gravest crisis. Railwaymen has always stood up and extended their helping hand in such hour of distress. In the past also, Railwaymen had shown their solidarity and generosity by contributing a day’s basic pay to provide support to needy people.
3. Therefore, Board desires that an appeal should be made to each one of Railway Servants to generously contribute to PMNRF by donating at least one day’s basic pay towards this cause. In order to facilitate voluntary contribution to PMNRF, it is suggested that one day’s basic pay should be deducted from salary of all willing Railway Servants except those who give a specific declaration either (a) for nondeduction ; or (b) for deduction of an amount less than one day’s basic pay, on this account. As you are aware, contributions to the PMNRF are notified for 100% deduction from taxable income under Section 80(C) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 for eligible taxpayers willing to avail such tax deduction benefit.
4. Therefore, it is directed to arrange to send an appeal, as per aforesaid, to all the Railway Servants under your control through letters, SMS and other electronic means of communication duly involving recognized Trade Unions etc. The Zonal Railways/PUs/Other administrative Units should transfer the consolidated amount towards contribution to PMNRF to Railway Board so that a single cheque on behalf
of all Railwaymen can be handed over to the Prime Minister’s Office.

All Zonal Railways.
Sub: Breath analyser (BA) test and Bio-metric verification of Running staff during
signing On/Off.
Ref: This office letter dated 20.03.2020 on the subject.

Board had reiterated vide letter under reference to continue with the BA test and
Biometric for running staff. Subsequently a complete lock down has been imposed in the country and running of passenger trains has been completely suspended by IR till 14.04.2020.
2. Many ZRs have communicated to Railway Board officials at various levels the
apprehensions of the running staff about perceived possibility of contracting COVID-19 infections through either BA test or Biometric verification. This issue was examined earlier also by Railway Board duly consulting the health directorate and it was concluded that such possibilities can be eliminated with adequate precautions as already conveyed during VC of CRB with GMs.
3. However, in view of continued apprehensions being conveyed by ZRs, Board has relooked at the issue and decided that ZRs can locally issue relaxations for BA test and / or Biometric verification valid till 14.04.2020 or till the end date of complete lockdown, whichever is earlier, subject to the following:
i. The relaxation for BA test to be done only for crew operating freight trains in sections where no other passenger trains are running / anticipated at any given point of time in either directions.
ii. The crew with known history of alcoholism are not to be allowed this relaxation.
iii. A declaration in lieu of BA test is to be taken from each crew member at the time of signing on / off
iv. Manual signing in lieu of biometric verification is to be used as was done prior to
introduction of Biometric verification.
v. Manual entry in Crew Management System (CMS) must be ensured in lieu of BA test
/ Biometric verification to ensure that records are created in CMS for billing etc.
vi . The Loco Inspectors should make surprise checks for such crew who have not been
subjected to BA test.
The above relaxation is being permitted as a very special case considering the critical
situation prevailing and is not be used I quoted for any other situation in future. (

This issues with the approval of Board (MTR & MT).

Dear Sir,

Sub: Scheme of optional “All India Travel Concession facility, once in a block of 4 years(i.e. 2018-2021 onwards) on surrender of Privilege Passes

Ref.: (i) DoP&T’s O.M. No.31011/15/2017-Estt.A-IV dated 27.03.2018
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No.E(W)2017/PS5-1/3 dated 10.09.2018(RBE No.130/2018)

As Railway Board are aware that; the 7th CPC had recommended to bring Railway Servants also under the purview of LTC. Consequently, DoP&T, in consultation with Ministry of Railways, issued Office Memorandum, referred to above at S.No.(i), allowing Railway Servants to avail this facility with the condition that; Railway Employees who intend to avail LTC facility shall have to surrender Privilege Passes admissible to them in the current year in which they wish to avail this facility.

As Railway Board are aware that, pursuant to recommendations of the 7th CPC, DoP&T has communicated government’s decision, vide their Office Memorandum referred to above, to allow the Railway Employees to avail All India LTC in accordance with the Central Civil Services (Leave Travel Concession) Rules, 1988, i.e. CCS(LTC) Rules. The said O.M. was issued by the DoP&T in consultation with the Ministry of Railways, and certain conditions enumerated in that (from (i) to (viii)) were also laid down therein, explaining the entire procedure.

Railway Board, vide their letter, referred to above at S.No.(ii), issued instructions in regard to the above, in pursuance of DoP&T’s Office Memorandum cited above at S.No.(i), however, in the summarized position, given under Para 7 of the said RBE No.130/2018, it has been mentioned that, in Level 6 to 8, air travel entitlement, stipulated in MoF’s O.M. No.19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017, is not admissible for LTC, which is highly unfair and unjustified, because neither MoF’s O.M. dated 13.07.2017 nor the O.M. issued by the DoP&T dated 27.03.2018, referred to above at S.No.(i), which was issued in consultation with the Ministry of Railways, anywhere stipulates such type of condition, debarring Railway Employees, in Level 6-8 of the 7th CPC Pay Matrix, from air travel entitlement.

AIRF, therefore, desires that, the aforementioned condition, not allowing Railway Employees, in Level 6-8 air travel entitlement, should be withdrawn for justice and parity, and they should also be allowed similar entitlement, as stipulated in the Office Memorandum No.19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 10.07.2017 of the MoF (Deptt. of Expenditure) and O.M. No.31011/15/2017-Estt.A-IV dated 27.03.2018 of the DoP&T, so that, Railway employees, who intend to avail All India LTC facility can avail the same in a hassle-free manner.

AIRF alerts Railway Administration on the Outbreak of Corona Virus(COVID-19) in most of the countries

As you are aware that, the World Health Organisation(WHO) has declared Corona Virus(COVID-19) Outbreak as “Global Health Emergency”. Owing to this, all precautionary measures are being taken on most of the airports of our country…..

Dear Sir,

Sub: Outbreak of Corona Virus(COVID-19) in most of the countries

As you are aware that, the World Health Organisation(WHO) has declared Corona Virus(COVID-19) Outbreak as “Global Health Emergency”. Owing to this, all precautionary measures are being taken on most of the airports of our country.

It may also be appreciated that; Indian Railways is a major transport system which carries around 2.5 crore population every day. There is, therefore, every likelihood that the Frontline Railway Employees who come under direct contact of the rail users may also be affected by this chronic disease. Unfortunately, Indian Railways is not taking any preventive measure in this regard.

AIRF, therefore, desires that the Frontline Staff, viz. Ticket Checking Staff, Station Staff, Loco Pilots, Guards, Booking Clerks, Parcel Clerks, EC&RC, who come in the direct contact with the rail users, should be provided with N-75 Masks as well as Alcohol Based Sanitizer as a measure of protection. Onboard Staff should also be provided with same kind of protection.

Apart from the above, World Health Organization has also issued advisory that close contact of the people should be avoided as the coronavirus spread very fast through cold and cough etc and enters into human body through mucous membrane areas. Staff where the Biometric attendance is in vogue comes in close contact with each other in Biometric Attendance area, Biometric machines even have become unsafe because touch of infected person may spread the virus to a healthy person. It would not be possible to sanitize Biometric Attendance areas and machines after every touch. Union therefore demands that Biometric Attendance system may be discontinued at once to save the workers from deadly coronavirus.

Apart from the above, Medical Department of all the Zonal Railways etc. needs to launch Awareness Campaign to educate Railway employees in this regard.

This may please be treated as “Most Urgent”.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Advance prospects for Track Maintainers

Pursuant to recommendation of the Railway Safety Review Committee, set up under the Chairmanship of Justice H.R. Khanna, a Retired Supreme Court Judge, in the year 1998, to prove into train accident of Golden Temple Mail, a decision was taken that; Trackman above 45 years of age would be laterally inducted in the category of Pointsman to the extent of 10%. The said age limit was further relaxed from 45 years to 38 years in erstwhile Grade Pay Rs.1800, i.e. Level-1 of the 7th CPC Pay Matrix.

In the wake of implementation of four-grade structure, in the ratio of 10:20:20:50, any Trackman above the age of 38 years would hardly be available in the initial Grade Pay of Rs.1800, i.e. Level-1 of the 7th CPC Pay Matrix, for lateral induction to the tune of 10% in the category of Pointsman.

AIRF, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to look into the matter in the above context, and minimum age bar for lateral induction, as mentioned above, should be removed to facilitate smooth flow from the category of Track Maintainer to Pointsman Category and other categories.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

Sub: Discontinuance of Direct Recruitment to the posts of Senior Section Engineers (SSEs)- clarification reg.
As per extant provisions, SSE posts are fllled up partly by DR (20%) and partly by promotion (80%)
2. Instructions issued vide Board’s letter No.E(NG)II/2018/RR/1-31 dated 25.10.2018 provisionally discontinued direct recruitment in the posts of SSEs, initially for a period of one year, and also provided that all direct recruitment in all technical supervisory categories should be done only in the post of JEs by adding the DR vacancies of SSEs to those of JEs for the purpose of Direct Recruitment till the period of discontinuance of DR in SSE. The provisional discontinuation of DR of SSE has further been extended for a period of one year beyond 24.10.2019 vide Board’s letter No.E(NG)II/2018/RR/1-31 dated 02.09.2019.
3. The transfer of the DR intake for SSEs into the lower grade of JE has resulted in increase in strength of the JE cadre with a corresponding decrease in SSEs. To offset this as well as to protect the promotional interest of JEs, the matter has been examined in consultation with both the staff Federations i.e. AIRF and NFIR. It has been decided that henceforth the 20% DR quota of SSE may be transferred to the Promotional Quota (from JE to SSE) until the prohibition of DR intake into SSE continues. In other words, SSE posts may now be fllled up 100% through promotion from JE as long as the DR intake into SSE is kept on hold. Adequate cushion may however be factored in for accommodating any pending inter Railway transfer requests or any compassionate appointment cases in SSE that may have been approved.

Closure of Railway Printing Presses – General Secy. writes to CRB

This issue of closure of Railway Printing Presses was seriously taken-up by the Recognized Federations during the course of discussions in the Special DC/JCM Meeting, held on 16th January, 2020, whereupon Hon’ble Minister for Railways commented as under:-
“The issue of Printing Press will be internally assessed and thereafter further discussed with both the Federations before a decision is taken”……..

No.AIRF/174 Dated: February 15, 2020

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Closure of Railway Printing Presses

This issue of closure of Railway Printing Presses was seriously taken-up by the Recognized Federations during the course of discussions in the Special DC/JCM Meeting, held on 16th January, 2020, whereupon Hon’ble Minister for Railways commented as under:-
“The issue of Printing Press will be internally assessed and thereafter further discussed with both the Federations before a decision is taken”.
Moreover, your goodself were also agreed to review the issue.

Because nothing has been done by the Railway Board up-till now on this particular issue, General Managers of different Railways, where Printing Presses are situated, are going ahead with the policy of closure of Printing Presses.

It is, therefore, requested that, the General Managers of Northern Railway, South Central Railway, Central Railway, Eastern Railway and Southern Railway should immediately be directed to hold earlier decision of the Board not to close remaining 05 Printing Presses, and a meeting with both the Recognized Federations should be called to review the decision for coming to a final conclusion on the above subject matter.

This may please be treated as “Most Urgent”.
