SECTION 'A' INTRODUCTION
Welcoming CPO and other officers, President, General Secretary of SCRE Sangh and their
th
Assistant General Secretaries, Divisional Secretaries and Divisional Presidents to the 126 Zonal PNM
meeting with South Central Railway Employees Sangh, CPO/IR mentioned that we would be discussing
pending cases, new cases and most of which are policy nature and hence the old cases were dragging for
years. Expressing hope that cordial relations would continue, CPO/IR stated that out of 85 cases tabled for
discussion, 45 cases had come to much more conclusions which would benefit the staff as a whole.
Address by CPO
Taking pleasure in welcoming General Secretary and all the office bearers of the SCRE Sangh,
th
FA&CAO, FA&CAO/G, CPO/IR and other officers to the 126 Zonal PNM with SCRE Sangh, CPO stated
that all the PHODs were busy in the last one and half months in MPs meetings as well as GM’s inspections
being conducted on the divisions. Thanking GS for the PNM meeting, CPO mentioned the following
achievements:
(i) There has been highly positive trend of compassionate ground appointment cases on this
Railway. Written examination was conducted for the first time in the Indian Railways to the
Diploma holders for the post of JE/II on compassionate grounds. A lot of effort has been made
by Sri Srinivasa Reddy, Dy.CPO/Admn. & Rect. in this regard in making out the syllabus,
conducting written examination and offering appointments. CPO complimented Sri Srinivasa
Reddy, Dy.CPO/Admn. & Rect. for this achievement.
(ii) For Sports quota recruitment and Cultural quota recruitment, advertisements have been
issued.
(iii) Notification has been issued calling applications from course completed Act Apprentices for
employment in Railways.
(iv) Indents were placed long back on RRBs for more than 2500 vacancies in all categories for
which advertisements have been issued by RRB for the categories of Loco Pilot, Goods Guard
and also for ECRC and Comml. Clerks. Nodal RRB issued main advertisement and our RRBs
will issue indicative advertisement. Written examination will be conducted on a single day all
over the Indian Railways so that duplication of passing in both the examinations will be
eliminated.
3
(v) Panel were received from RRB for the posts of Goods Guard, Traffic Apprentice, Signal
Maintainer, Telecom Maintainer and shortly 200 papers of Loco Pilots are expected and the
panel of ASM is also ready. This will relieve overworking of the ASMs to some extent.
(vi) As regards implementation of MACPS and filling up of vacancies as existed on 31-8-2009,
workshops have done good work. Wherever possible, we have finished non-selection and
selection posts except for the written examination for JE/II posts and Gr.’D’ to Gr.’C’. If any
category is left out, list of such categories may be given.
(vii) As far as pre-2006 revision of pension cases are concerned, NED, GNT, LGD workshop,
TPTY workshop, headquarters have completed this task. Only in SC, HYB and BZA divisions,
the work is pending substantially.
(viii) There are large numbers of surplus teachers now on S.C.Railway. It is suggested that these
surplus teachers are redeployed in the category of ASMs where the administration would be
able to find some useful work for them.
(ix) We can decentralize the posts of JE/I in certain categories of Mech., Elec. and S&T and start
thinking about it. Whenever we send some proposals regarding decentralization, opinion of
the Sangh may be given so that we will address all grievances of the staff.
Address by GS
th
Thanking the Administration for convening the 126 GM-PNM with SCRE Sangh within a short
time, GS said that Personnel Department was keen to maintain regular dialogue with the Organised Labour
for the purpose of ensuring that the industrial and healthy relations are further consolidated. Specially
complimenting CPO for highlighting certain important developments and progress made by the Railways in
respect of filling up of vacancies and also the RRB panels which are expected to be received, GS brought
out the following points to the notice of CPO:
(i) Administration has to look into the aspect of the candidates trained by S.C. Rly. Administration
and deserted the S.C. Railway. Employees particularly in the category of ALPs, when they are
trained and positioned to work as ALP, they left the job on S.C.Rly and were working in some
other Railways especially on W.C.Rly, W.Rly and E.C.Rly. There is no machinery to stop this.
It is requested that Administration may take necessary action to see that our machinery is
properly streamlined in order to contain such situations.
(ii) As regards dragging of PNM subjects for years, it is mentioned that the position and
sometimes the remarks were changed from time to time. When there is a merit in the case,
that merit warrants the Administration to take a decision. In the vision-2020 document also,
Railway Ministry said they would further strengthen the PNM machinery so as to see effective
participation, very cogent dialogue for the purpose of resolving the issues. This may please be
appreciated so that Administration can see the cases combined with genuineness and
humanitarian grounds and they should be settled with human face and human mind. CPO is
requested to see that we further level up ourselves as participants of this machinery.
(iii) Joining with CPO in complimenting Sri Srinivasa Reddy, Dy.CPO/Admn. & Rect. for the job
done in granting CG appointments to Diploma holders and Degree holders against the
vacancies of JE by framing syllabus and conducting written examination, GS said that other
Railways would copy this procedure, since no other Railway have done this.
(iv) Of late, replies are not received to the letters written to the Administration. Both the sides are
working as one family for the purpose of improving the efficiency of the Railway and equally for
safeguarding the interests of the employee. If replies are given promptly on the grievances
raised, we will be in a position to analyse the cases and get it closed.
(v) Decisions of the Joint Meeting should be implemented immediately and the result of the joint
meeting must flow which will add additional advantage to the Railway Organization. For
example – IRCTC surplus catering staff, they are willing for redeployment, but Administration is
not able to finalise and paying lakhs of rupees as salaries and allowances without utilizing their
services. It is requested to see that action is taken within 7 days particularly where joint
meeting is held and conclusions arrived. The entire Man Power Planning is dealt by CPO and
his decision is final. It is requested that orders are issued for redeployment of catering staff as
per their request in writing so that they may be redeployed in ticket checking.
(vi) As regards surplus teachers, they are highly qualified staff. Suddenly, if you ask them to go as
ASMs, they may not go. One joint meeting should be conducted so that we can solve the
problem. Sangh is willing to be consulted to solve the problem so that these teachers can be
judiciously redeployed. There are vacancies in Railway Degree College. The Zonal Railway is
not competent to fill these vacancies, since they are now in Gr.’A’. There was avenue and
certain percentage of posts were filled by Jr.College Lecturers in the past. The administration
should approach Railway Board to restore the previous avenue with appropriate amendments,
facilitating Junior Lecturers to join Degree College.
4
(vii) As regards Gr.’D’ to Gr.’C’ selection in HQ, 7 years have passed after the last selection. Gr.’D’
staff are deprived of their promotion to Gr.’C’ category and are frustrating. It is requested to
finalise Gr.’D’ to Gr.’C’ selection. If need be, the matter will be discussed with GM.
(viii) In respect of Act Apprentices, GS thanked CPO for issuing the notification for inducting the
course completed Act Apprentices because there is heavy shortage. Priority may given where
there is heavy shortage. While distributing the candidates, care may be taken that good
number of people are given to CRS/TPTY so that the staff under orders of transfer are relieved
out of TPTY.
(ix) Railway Board recently issued orders regarding payment of OT to Loco running staff and
Traffic running staff and other categories. It is requested that these OT arrears are paid
without much delay.
(x) In respect of stepping up of cases, Railway Board issued orders where the senior employee is
drawing less pay than the junior employee recruited on or after 1-1-2006. CPO and FA&CAO
may see that orders of stepping up of pay are implemented as quickly as possible.
(xi) Regarding MACPS, Board issued orders that what should be the criteria for awarding marks
slightly modifying the earlier instructions. These instructions have given greater flexibility to
grant financial upgradation without creating any problem. It is requested that wherever cases
were not considered and upgradations denied, those cases are reviewed in the light of Board’s
recent instructions.
(xii) As regards deduction of income tax, whatever arrears are paid to the employees, it is from 1-1-
2006 onwards. In order to avoid hardship to the staff in paying more income tax, FA&CAO is
requested to see that suitable instructions are issued to the field units thereby the income tax
is saved.
(xiii) As regards periodical transfers of office bearers, Board’s instructions are very clear that when
GM approved to transfer the office bearer out of the present station, the office bearer may be
allowed to continue for a period of one year or till the next office bearer is elected whichever is
earlier. There is no mention that the one year should be counted from the date of notice given
to the Union. It is requested that the one year period should be reckoned from the date the
GM approved the transfer.
Address by CPO on 03.03.10
While inviting GM/SCR, GS/Sangh, President/Sangh and all the PHODs, Office Bearers of Sangh
to the 126th Zonal PNM with Sangh, CPO mentioned that this is the first PNM meeting in the year 2010.
CPO also gave an account of the proceedings that took place in the PNM meeting on 2.3.10 and 3.3.10 and
mentioned that discussions were fruitful and were held in a congenial atmosphere. CPO said that during the
discussions, SCRE Sangh has also raised certain important issues such as providing new AVC to
Pointsmen category. Providing career improvement opportunities to group-D staff of Commercial Staff and
also throwing open promotional opportunities in commercial department to group-D staff of other
departments as well.
Address by General Manager :
GM while expressing his happiness over the performance of S.C. Railway said that he salute one
and all who are associated with achieving the excellent results despite recessionary trends and requested
the staff representatives to take his message to all the staff down below. He mentioned that SCR has picked
th
up 11.4 million tonnes more than previous year and its contribution in total earning of IR is 1/4 . He also
mentioned that SCR ran 338 special trains and 6970 additional coaches in the year. GM commended the
hard work put in by SCR officers and staff. Passengers are also happy with the performance of SCR. GM
said that our gross earnings have gone up due to hard work put in by the railway staff and officers. He said
that earning would have been much even more if more wagons and coaches were made available. Coming
to the capacity augmentation, GM mentioned about the doubling of Samalkot-Kakinada Port section, guage
conversion of Dharmavaram - Pakala section and electrification of 119 track kilometers during the year. 21
road under bridges and sub-ways, 12 Road Over Bridges were created because of dedicated staff. SCR is
having finest blend of officers, staff and staff representatives. In any criterion SCR is the best zonal railway.
Speaking over the issue of Compassionate Appointments, GM said that the number of pending cases have
come down to 200 odd cases from more than 500 cases.
GM further mentioned that economic well being may be there for the widow, but cases are to be
dealt on its merit keeping in view the large number of vacancies and railways need men. Regarding exgratia
payments, GM stated that earlier there were more than 100 cases. The number has now came down to less
than 10-15 cases. GM while mentioning about the recently convened MPs meeting stated that unlike earlier
meetings this time meetings were held at the MPs places instead of convening at
Hyderabad/Secunderabad. 90% of the Zones have so far not convened the meetings. The meetings were
held in extremely cordial atmosphere. GM said that it is his pleasure to have a PNM meeting with SCRE
5
Sangh and mentioned that he will look forward for the same cooperation with Sangh in the years to come to
achieve greater heights of performance.
Address by GS/SCRE Sangh
GS mentioned that he is overwhelmed with the observations made by GM/SCR over the present
performance of S.C. Railway and he has also mentioned that he is equally grateful to GM for thanking the
railway employees and officers on this achievement. He further mentioned that GM is having a positive
approach and he is able to pull the people towards his direction and opined that under his able leadership
SCR will further prosper. GS stated that there is heavy shortage of staff in the diesel loco shed, particularly
at MLY. Here creation of posts is a problem. New shed is created, people are aspiring for promotions.
Likewise, in TRD, Operating categories, there is an urgent need to take a decision by General Manager and
solve the problem of filling up of vacancies. In Gangmen category we are facing serious crisis. Whatever
panels pending or drawn should be operated and vacancies are filled. The crux of the problem is creation
of posts. Wherever, there is a need for creation of 100 posts, atleast 60-65 posts may be created and on
this aspect GS/Sangh requested FA&CAO to kindly cooperate. GS requested GM/SCR to consider the CG
cases more sympathetically. He said that wherever administration is of the view that cases are genuine and
not malafide, they may be considered liberally.
GS mentioned about a widow’s case seeking the post of Staff Nurse and requested GM to write a
DO letter to Member Staff for their formal sanction. He also mentioned about a deceased railway employee
- late Shri Dasarath, Loco Pilot’s case and said that even though adoption case was genuine CG
appointment was not offered. In another case, where a widow of the loco running staff of Renigunta who is
graduate was not given a post matching to her qualification. GS/Sangh recollected an earlier decision
where a 3-member committee consisting of SAG Officers was constituted to clear the pending cases and
requested for constitution of such committee again. On the issue of surrender of posts, GS mentioned that
whenever there is a need to surrender there should be advance planning and organized labour should be
taken into confidence before such surrender is made. He mentioned about the plight of Catering Staff who
were sent on deemed deputation to IRCTC. He mentioned that their payments delayed, seniority not
processed, their promotions lost. This can be taken up as a lesson in future so that such things should not
happen. Now, there is Teachers problem. He said that the old AVC available for teachers was
discontinued. It should be restored now. In this regard, proposal may be sent to Railway Board. GS stated
that surrenders have to be done in the recruitment grades. Promotional prospects should not be affected.
On SC Division, even though panel was available, promotional posts were surrendered. Instead,
they could have promoted the employee and released vacancy should have been surrendered. Inspite of
COM stating promotions should be given, since the staff were empanelled, it was not done. Discussions are
going on since 3 ½ years on this issue in the PNM Meeting. GS/Sangh commended the work of Personnel
Department Officers in respect of Staff Welfare of issuing identity-cum-medical cards to all the employees of
RN building and allowing IT rebate of Rs.19, 00,000/- to the staff which was possible as a result of spreading
of pay commission arrears from 2006 onwards. On this issue, GS complemented FA&CAO and CPO.
Speaking on the aspect of Safety, GS said continuous night working may be reviewed. He mentioned that it
rd
is very difficult to work in 3 continuous night.
GS requested to draw the links and rosters in such a way that on completion of 2 night works the
employee may be relieved for day duty. If this is done, it will be a history creation for south central railway.
GS/Sangh requested GM to take up welfare measures like community halls. GS also mentioned that the
condition of Gangmen is miserable. They are the most loyal workforce and there should not be any delay in
filling up the vacancies. GS also brought to the notice of GM that on NED Division, out of 500 odd running
staff, 386 staff are in receipt of charge sheet.
Casual Labour in Civil Engineering Department, who have put in 25 years are still with
temporary status, not regularized. As regards catering facilities in rest houses for Ticket Checking staff,
CCM has given assurance.

& SPO/Rules
CLOSED 1) In terms of Board’s letter dt.11.1.2010 (RBE No.8/10) in cases where even after merger, mode of filling
up in merged grades, as indicated in Board’s letter dt.3.9.09 (SC No.143/09) has not been changed, all
such panels, suitability lists, if any, as finalized/partly operated before restriction was imposed on making
promotion to such merged grades, which was effective from 4.9.08 may be further operated. All other
panels/suitability lists cease to exist i.e. the cases where a non-selection’ post has been changed to
‘selection’ or ‘suitability with prescribed benchmark’ and where a ‘selection’ post has been changed to non-
selection or suitability with prescribed benchmark. The instructions issued under para-9 of this office letter
dt.25.9.09 are in consonance with the Board’s instructions on the subject.
2) Proforma fixation of pay is allowed only in the type of cases indicated in para 228 of IREM. However, in
terms of Board’s letter dated 13.11.81 (SC No.138/81), an employee on promotion to a higher post shall
have the option to have his pay fixed on the date of accrual of next increment in the lower scale. Since
employees promoted during the period from January to June can exercise their option for fixation of pay,
they will not be put to any monetary loss.
3) In regard to filling up of resultant vacancies with the modified procedure, all Divisions/units including
headquarters have taken into account the resultant vacancies in the lower grades in the assessment of
vacancies as on 31.8.09. Where doubts were raised by Divisions/Units, they were advised accordingly.
