Dear Comrades,
Let the whole world know about Developments in Mumbai Division ofCentral & Western Railway.
The Train Driving Staff of both the CR & WR of Mumbai Division gatheredunder the banner of Joint Action Forum in the meeting held at theSuburban Lobby of Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus Railway Stationunanimously decided to take one day National Holiday on the nextRepublic Day 26TH January, 2010.
They are demanding review of Grade Pay for all categories of the traindriving staff, Revision of Mileage Rates from 01.01.2006 & 01.09.2008as per the RAC 1981 formula, Computation allowance for Motormen &Judicial Review of the HOER.
They claim the Railway Administration willfully delaying the decision inall these issues.Does that means complete train stoppage in MUMBAI?Will Railway Administration not take any decision and compel the TrainDriving Staff to intensify the agitation further after 26th January,2010.
Please think it over, inform others, and send your comments suggestions.Thank you,

Respected Sir,

AILRSA South Western Railway Zonal Convention held at Prakash Restaurant, Hubli on 16.12.09, presided by Sri SD Arnold, Zonal President. The convention was welcomed by Sri C. Sunish, General Secretary and was inaugurated by Sri PS Prasad, General Secretary, Co-Ordination Committee of Central Government Employees and Workers, Karnataka State. He explained the latest stand of COC about the agitations against the adverse recommendations of 6th CPC and about the decisions of first meeting of the National Anomaly Committee which was held on 12th December, 2009. On behalf of the Confederation, Com. S.K. Vyas, President and Com. K.K.N. Kutty, Secretary General attended and participated in the discussion.
Sri.Prasad emphasized the need of joint struggle by Central Government Employees including Railways.

Sri MN Prasad, Secretary General AILRSA delivered Key note Address. He elaborately explained the agitational programs by AILRSA from the submission of 6th CPC report in detail. He narrated the details of the conciliation by RLC, New Delhi on 24.11.09 which led to the postponement of Hunger fast as per the guidance RLC. He also explained about the suggestion of Cadre Review Committee to extend the facility of up-gradation for Assistant Loco Pilot to 20/80 %. Now 80% of ALPs will get up- graded GP of 2400. This benefit is given only to pacify and control our struggle. So it is our duty to educate our workers the importance of maintaining the tempo of struggle till we achieve our demands.

Sri MM Roly, Central Organising Secretary, Sri KC James, Joint Secretary General, Sri R Surendran, Divisional Secretary, Bangalore, Sri. K Nishad, Divisional Secretary, Hubli, Sri Dhikshith, Branch Secretary, Hubli, Sri. Vaidya SB, Divisional Secretary, RMS Employees Union were addressed the gathering.

The meeting passed the following resolutions:

1. Railway Medical Facilities
The railway medical facilities to be up graded; so that the staff is getting advantage of latest technology. The hospital should have more number of beds and to be maintained hygienic conditions. Employees are avoiding treatment from Railway hospitals due to the poor maintenance and unhygienic conditions.
Private Medical Certificate: There are incidents that many Crew Controllers are not accepting PMC.

As per the Medical Manual

“Should a railway employee, residing within the jurisdiction of a Railway doctor, desire to be attended by a non- railway medical attendant of his own choice, it is not incumbent on him to place himself under the treatment of the Railway Doctor, it is however essential that if leave of absence is required on medical certificate, a request for such leave should be supported by a sick certificate from the Railway Doctor. When a Railway Employee residing out side the jurisdiction of a Railway Doctor requires leave on medical certificate, he should submit, within 48 hours, a sick certificate from a Registered Medical Practitioner……”

Hence this meeting demands to give clear instruction to all CCRCs to accept PMC.

Railway Medical Officers are extending step motherly treatment to the running staff. In health unit doctors will not be available round the clock. And if an employee reports sick after the office hours of the health unit and on Holidays he will not get treatment and sick certificate. If the Railway doctor is not available at a place and the staff approach private doctor and along with the certificate if he met railway doctor on his next availability, the person should keep in sick list.

2. Allowing preparation time of 2 hrs beyond Head Quarters rest

The rest at Head Quarter is defined as 16/12 hours for a duty of above 8hours/below 8 hours. Rajadhyaksha award is clearly mentioned about the preparation time of 2 hours in their recommendation. But different divisional authorities are not adhering these instructions. In SWR also some divisions call was being served at 14th hour asking the employee to report at 16th hour. As per the OA 149/03&801/04 dt: 03.11.2005, of CAT Hyderabad.it is very clear that the Head Quarters rest is 16+2(preparation time) and staff should not be disturbed at 14th hour. Hence this meeting demands to allow 2 hours preparation time.

3. Bye-passing of Head quarters.

Now a days it is frequent to compel the staff to work bye passing head quarters. Goods crew after coming back from 2-3 days of out station detention is being asked to work to another direction bye passing their HQ is not fair. So necessary instruction may be given to the control organisation to avoid such bye-passing. Crew beat to be displayed at all crew booking points.

4. Inter Zone working:

There is a proposal for extending the present pattern of Goods/ Passenger/Express trains to work beyond Divisional/ Zonal jurisdiction. This is creating many problems to the working crew.
Bangalore-Guntakal working: In the present link, the utilization of Mail/ Express Crew has been about 42 to 44 hrs per week, which is almost up to the maximum hours prescribed by HOER without taking into account late arrivals and other detentions. Hence, the question of raising the bar for achieving maximum productivity does not arise at all. The paradox is that the proposed link by the administration reduces the utilization of Mail / Express crew to about 40 to 42 hrs. Further SBC Crew is already crossing their divisional boundaries and working up to Erode and Chennai. This association strongly condemns extending the working beyond DMM; by this, the administration has reduced the Head Quarters Rest and increased Out Station detention, which shall alter our social life very badly.

5. Long hood working of WDP4

Long Hood working of WDP4 Locos is a safety hazard and this has been highlighted to the administration a number of times and the administration has turned a deaf ear to an important issue raised by the very staff that has been entrusted to ensure safety. Such a non-participatory administrative setup shall prove very dangerous, as we are carrying the public. Once again this association demands that turn - table be provided at major junctions for working trains with SHORT HOOD as Leading. This association feels that a responsible action be taken by the administration before any accident occur on the Indian Railways.

6. Cab ergonomics:
Nowadays different loco sheds are modifying the locomotive cabs according to their will. They are not considering the convenience of working crew. Especially in WDP4 locos horns are provided at the back side of ALP seat, operating horns will develop back pain due to the twist angle. Hence we demand to consider the suggestion of AILRSA in this regard.


7. Handling training on completion of RC.
As per the Railway Board order 4 days handling has to be given on completion of RC ( ref No.SWR/M/R/14Dt.17.02.09), but unfortunately CMPE (Dsl) diluted this order by utilizing the LP directly to duty and asking the LIs to counsel the LP in 4 trips, which is highly objectionable. This association demands to give full handling after RC.

8. Filling up the posts of CCRC/CPRC/CRC
AILRSA repeatedly demanding to fill up the vacancies in CCRC/CPRC/CRC posts which is an ex-cadre post. But unfortunately divisional authorities are not implementing the Railway Board order in this regard. Some pick and choose persons and LIs are managing these posts.


9. Running Rooms and Rest Rooms
As per Railway board instruction, running rooms to be given three star facilities. But in SWR many running rooms and rest rooms are poorly maintained. No adequate supply of hygienic drinking water, no sufficient number of beds, News papers etc. Subsidized food is not being supplied in many places. The quality of the supplied food is not ensured. In some running rooms contract persons are not serving call. Now Senior Welfare Inspector is posted only to look after grievances of LP/ALP. Such SWI may be directed to inspect different rest rooms and running rooms and collecting the suggestions to make a proper report.

10. Minimum Guaranteed KMs
For the past 18 months the Loco Running Staff of Hospet are not getting minimum Guaranteed KMs for the following sections:TNGL-RNJP-TNGL,TNGL-BAY-TNGL. Many representations were submitted and even DRM Hubli has given an assurance in this regard. But till the out come has not come. Hence this meeting demands to identify these sections as handicapped and minimum guaranteed KMs to be allowed.

11. Counseling Sri Giri, DME/Power/UBL
This meeting vehemently condemns the negative attitude of Sri. Giri, DME/Power Hubli and request Sr.DME/UBL to counsel him to change his attitude and stop issuing baseless charge sheets to the running staff, in order to maintain harmonious relation ship.( A detailed letter narrating different cases will follow)

12. DPO Mysore -Cutting of AMA – OP Without any Clarification & information
In the payment for the month of November, DPO/MYS has started a Deduction under the Description AMA-OP in multiples of amount ranging from Rs:-1500/- to Rs:-2500/- and this has done without any previous intimation. And the amounts deducted are without any proper calculations too. This meeting demands that any deductions from the salary to be intimated to the staff, and the concerned supervisor who caused OP may be taken up.

13. Income Tax Deduction

The Railway has disbursed the CPC arrears and Tax deducted in the current year. But as per the Income Tax rules if an employee receives an arrears the Tax to be calculated separately for 2005-2006, 2006-2007, 2007-2008 period and adjusted with that years Tax. If it has done many workers will be benefited. For that purpose employee has to submit Form-10 E available at Income Tax office.

6.3 RELIEF UNDER SECTION 89 (1):-
It is available to an employee when he receives salary in advance or in arrear or when in one financial year, he receives salary of more than 12 months or receives ‘profits in lieu of salary’. W.e.f. 1.6.89, relief u/s 89(1) can be granted at the time of TDS from employees of all companies, co-operative societies, universities or institutions as well as govt. /public sector undertakings, the relief should be claimed by the employee in Form No. 10E and should be worked out as explained in Rule 21A of the Income Tax Rules.

21AA. Where the assessee, being a Government servant or an employee in a [company, co-operative society, local authority, university, institution, association or body], is entitled to relief under sub-section (1) of section 89, he may furnish to the person responsible for making the payment referred to in sub-section (1) of section 192, the particulars specified in Form No. 10E.

Hence this association requests CPO to issue orders to calculate the arrears accordingly and deduct Income tax for the particular year only.


Expected speedy redressal for the above demands


Thanking You Yours faithfully

THE CHAIRMAN,

Respected Sir,

Sub:-Enhancing the exemption limit of Running allowance from Income Tax-reg:-

70% of Running Allowance received by Running Staff of Indian Railways up to the maximum of Rs. 6000/- per month is exempted from Income Tax. This is done vide sec (14)(ii) read with rule 2BB(2) of Income Tax rules to exempt any allowance granted to an employee working in any transport system to meet his personal expenditure during his duty performed in the course of running of such transport from one place to another place; provided such employee is not in receipt of daily allowance. The maximum limit of Rs. 6000/-per month is fixed as per Income Tax (third amendment) Rules, 2000 with effect from 01.08.1997, i.e. from the date of revision of running allowance on implementation of 5th CPC.

Consequent upon the implementation of 6th CPC and enhancing daily allowance by 3.8 times w.e.f. 01.09.2008, the maximum limit of Running allowance exempted from Income Tax also requires enhancement from the present level of Rs.6000 to the tune of 3.8 times.

This Association requests your august authority to take up the matter at the appropriate level so as to enhance the exemption limit of running allowance from Income Tax to3.8 times. This matter requires immediate attention as the calculation for deduction towards Income Tax from the salary of the employees for the Financial Year 2009-2010 are going to be finalized in the coming months.

Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,

At Least the Bosses came down from the Ivory Tower

Dear Comrades,

Since the date of publication of 6th CPC report we have been continuously drawing the attention of Railway administration against the injustice done to the Running Staff in General and Assistant Loco Pilots in particular. The Grade Pay(GP) of ALP is fixed Rs 1900/- just 100/- above the lowest basic of Group C. Even though the qualification for the post of ALP is 10+ ITI, more than 50% of them are Diploma holders. They have to undergo training in different type of locos, General Rules; Subsidiary rules and is equally responsible for any undue incidents. Due to the inadequate GP and poor working condition, around 30% ALP’s are drop out during their initial training it self. Also the historical relativity between the different grades of Loco Running staff is abolished by merging the pay scales of LP (G), LP (P), and LP (M). Hence we demand Rs. 2800/- as GP to ALP, Rs. 4600/- to LP (G), Rs. 4800/- to LP (P), and Rs. 5400/- to LP (M). Also we demand the special allowance of Rs. 1000/- and Rs.500/- to be given to all Loco Running Staff.

We demand to consider TA rate of Rs.340/- for calculating the running allowance and RAC 1980 formula to be continued as yard stick for running allowance.

We demand judicial review of out dated HOER as agreed by the Government.

AILRSA organized a number of agitational programs from 23.04.2008 onwards. Out of that the 36 hour Hunger fast on 29.12.08 was impressive and Honorable Railway minister Sri Lalu Prasad Yadav instructed Chairman Railway Board to redress the grievances of Loco Pilots and Assistant Loco Pilots. On 17.11.08 our delegation met Member Staff Sri. SS Khurana, and on 06.02.09 met CRB Sri SS Khurana and he expressed his view regarding the lower basic of ALP and assured us that some improvement will be done within the possible limit.

AILRSA decision to go for indefinite strike was deferred due the Parliament election.

Our delegation met Sri AK Anthony, Honorable Minister for defence, and many MP’s and leaders of different political Parties. Sri Balaganga MP and Sri TK Rangarajan MP, represented our issues in Rajya Sabha.
As per the decision of All India BGM at Nagpur on 27.06.09 we declared 24 hours hunger fast in front of Janthar Mantar after a massive rally on 25/26 Nov 2009.
However Honarable Regional Labour Commisioner(Central )Sri BB Bhat Nagar intervened and called a conciliatory meeting on 24.11.09. From Railway Board Sri John Ekka, Deputy Director, Sri D Mallik, Joint Director and Sri Hari Kishan, Director Pay Commission attended and Sri MN Prasad, Secretary General, Sri L Mony, President, Sri NB Dutta, Joint Secretary General, Sri Jit Singh Tank Treasurer, Sri KC James, Assistant Secretary General were attended. The Honorable RLC instructed the Railways to come with their decision specifically on our demands within 6 weeks and next sitting will be on 18.01.10 and advice us to postpone our Hunger fast program. We conducted a massive Dharna at janthar Mantar instead of Hunger fast. Com. Basudeb Acharia MP, Com. Tapan Sen MP were addressed the gathering.

Now we have to intensify our campaign program. This is not a time for IDLING. If the conciliation on 18.01.10 fails we have left with no option but STOPPAGE OF WORK.
