SEMINAR on HLSRC at Bangalore on 22.03.12

The High Level Safety Review Committee headed by Sri Anil Kakodkar has submitted their report before Railway Ministry. The report is explaining various aspects and suggestion for improving railway safety. AILRSA submitted a detailed memorandum before the committee; some of our suggestions were accepted by the committee.
In their report the committee observes that huge number of Vacancies is prevailing in Railways.( Refer HLSRC Report 2.11.1 page 25)
In Safety categories, Out of 675315, 126304 posts are vacant. In Loco Running Staff out of 83323, 17119 posts are lying vacant ( 20.5 %).This is as per the present sanctioned strength. For the newly introduced trains and for leave and trainee reserve no staff is available, causing denial of legitimate rest, leave and even sick leave. The committee recommends filling up all vacancies within 6 months.
The committee recommends to up grade the recruitment qualification of Assistant Loco Pilot to Diploma. And separation of Electric and Diesel running Staff.
Many other suggestions are there in their report containing 143 pages.

Com. R Elangovan in his detailed speech explained the important points in the Kakodkar Committee Report , Sam Pathroda committee report etc along with the suggestions and proposals in the Railway Budget by the Ex Railway Minister Sri Dinesh Trivedi.
He critisised the stand of Railway Federations;  Indian Railway Officers Association, Railway Promottee  Officers Association, All India Railway Mens Federation(AIRF), National Federation for Railway Men(NFIR) , RPF Association; that they will go for a strike if the Govt decides to roll back the increased fare suggested by the then Railway Minister Sri Dinesh Trivedi. These unions never declared strike for any working class issues; even they never joined with the Central trade unions strike on Feb 28, in which entire trade unions including INTUC and BMS participated. Instead they could have demanded the Government of India to invest in the Infrastructure of Railways. In China Government is investing the Railways, every year 1000 kms new track is being laid in China.
Railway Ministry is telling that payment of salary and allowances causing reduced Operating Ratio. It is to be noted that in other transport sectors Govt is investing money for making Road and Airports.
Railway Minister was expecting more funds investing in Railways through PPP(Private Public Participation) But it is proved that no private will invest money in Railways since the return is delayed.
