Ministry of Finance wants to reduce the number of days proposed by Railway Board & pressurizing to change the formula for PLB….
Today on date 18.10.2012,  I met Hon’ble Minister for Railways at 15:30 hrs. and apprised him about  AIRF’s demand of PLB, that according to us there would have been PLB of more than the proposed number of days by the Railway Board.
It has been given to understand that the Ministry of Finance wants to even reduce the number of days proposed by the Railway Board and is pressurizing for change in PLB Formula. I explained the MR that the
formula for PLB is based on a Tripartite Agreement achieved after great sacrifices of the Railwaymen, for which AIRF had to go on general strike. Therefore, any change in the formula of PLB or reduction in number of days or amount will tantamount to great injustice and would lead to avoidable nationwide agitation by the Railway employees.

I also emphasized for the waival of Written Test for the purpose of recruitment under LARSGESS. Hon’ble MR has promised that he will definitely look into the matter.
The MR has also said that after some time he will discuss various issues submitted by the AIRF to him. He has further assured us to implement all the earlier agreements as well those  to be arrived at with Ministry of Railways in near future.
The MR also applauded and appreciated the leadership of AIRF, and sought its cooperation.
I also emphasized that, so far as cooperation is concerned, AIRF has always tried its level best to cooperate, but the cause of the workers must be supreme and the solution will definitely improve productivity as well as
industrial relations will also be strengthen.The meeting of the Cabinet is scheduled to be held at 17:30 today.
We will try that the orders for PLB should be release by tonight.
With best wishes!
