Rlys yet to fill up top vacancies
Santanu Sanyal
Kolkata, July 27 The Indian Railways is yet to fill up vacancies at the top. As many as four zonal railways are functioning without regular general managers (GMs) and one of them since February, according to Railway sources. The positions of three other GMs will fall vacant shortly, it is learnt.
The four zonal railways that are functioning without regular GMs are East Coast Railway (Bhubaneswar), East Central Railway (Hajipur near Patna), South Central Railway (Secunderabad) and Southern Railway (Chennai).
The positions that will fall vacant soon include the GM of Chittaranjan Locomotive Works, which is a production unit, and the GM of North Western Railway (Jaipur).
One of the present members of the Railway Board too will retire shortly and his position, therefore, will be filled up by one of the existing GMs. This means, the position of another GM will fall vacant.
The GM of South Eastern Railway has been given the additional charge of East Coast Railway just as the GM of Eastern Railway the additional charge of East Central Railway, and the GM of South Western Railway the additional charge of South Central Railway, and the GM of Integral Coach Factory, Perambur, the additional charge of Southern Railway.
As it is, the GM of a zonal railway or a railway production unit is overburdened. One, therefore, wonders if anything worthwhile can really be done by him for another zonal railway as an additional charge, more so when he cannot devote much time to handling the charge.
Particularly hit are the jobs such as planning and implementation of projects as well as liaison with respective State governments in the zonal railways functioning under the additional charge, the sources add
