(viii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/ RSAC/ 2020 dated 13/10/2020.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to NFIR PNM Item No. 23/2017 and references cited above.

Despite discussions with the Official Side of the Railway Board (Pay Commission and Finance Directorates), the issue continues to remain pending even after a lapse of over three years. The Running Staff are extremely unhappy over Railway Board’s indifferent attitude in deciding this genuine issue. During a separate discussion with the CRB on 26/03/2021, NFIR representatives have also mentioned this pending subject concerning this critical safety category (Running Staff) leading to dissatisfaction among them.

NFIR, therefore, urges to arrange a separate meeting at the level of DG (HR) or Additional Member (Staff) soon for discussing the subject for finalization.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
