Comprehensive transfer policy - exemption from 5 years service condition

Comprehensive transfer policy - exemption from 5 years service condition

NFIR

No. II/14/Part VIII
Dated: 04/12/2017
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Comprehensive transfer policy - exemption from 5 years service condition - reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR's PNM Item No. 18/2016 and ATS given to Federation on 13th November, 2017.
(ii) Railway Board's letter No. E(NG)I-2005/TR/20 dated 10/02/2017.
(iii) NFIR's letter No. II/14/Part VII dated 21 Feb, 2017, 23/02/2017 and 12/04/2017.
(iv) NFIR's letter No. II/14/Part VIII dated 15/05/2017.

Kind attention of the Railway Board is invited to NFIR's PNM Item No. 18/2016 on the subject and Board's letter dated 10/02/2017 wherein relaxation in five years service condition has been granted in certain situations.

Consequent to receipt of representations from the Defence Forces Personnel re-employed in Railways and the widows/widowers appointed on compassionate ground seeking relaxation of five years minimum service condition, Federation vide letters cited under reference had approached the Hon'ble MR and sought approval for exemption from 5 years service condition to enable those re-employed ex- servicemen and widows/widowers to seek inter railway transfer to join their families and look after children. Thereafter a period of more than six months has passed this genuine demand has not been favourably considered. It is also sad to note that negative stand has been taken by Board while conveying "ATS" to the Federation without discussing the PNM Item. Attention is also invited to the General Manager (E), Western Railway's letter No. EP/1140/0 Vol. IV dated 02/08/2017 to Railway Board on the subject.

NFIR once again urges upon the Railway Board to kindly review extant instructions and issue revised instructions for exempting 5 years minimum service condition for entertaining inter railway transfer requests of ex-servicemen re-employed in Railways and also the widows/widowers/wards of Railway employees appointed on compassionate ground. Federation also proposes that a separate meeting be convened at the level of "Member Staff" to discuss this PNM Item.
Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Dr.M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

To help passenger to contact security personnel onboard a running train, Indian Railways has decided to earmark seats for security personnel of train escort team. In a recent circular issued from Ministry of Railways, provision of one side lower berth (berth no.63) in coach S1 has been earmarked in Sleeper Class coach in the entire train in which this security staff is travelling. If the train is being escorted by GRP, one berth will be earmarked for GRP and in case the train is escorted by RPF, one berth in Sleeper class will be earmarked for RPF. In case no RPF/GRP is escorting the train, no accommodation will be earmarked for them.

In case of any untoward incident or for any security related issues during journey, passengers may contact the security staff at the earmarked accommodation.
