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. STAFF SIDE Sri/Smt S.Muthukrishnan, President M. Raghavaiah, GS K. Jogender Reddy, Wkg. President Ch. Hari, Vice President G. Prabhaker Andrews,JGS A. Raja Gopal, JGS C.P.S. Sarma,Treasurer M. Uma Nagendramani,AGS M.BharaniBhanuPrasad,AGS V. Veerabhadraiah, AGS P.S. Perumal,Divl. President/SC T.A. Sai Kumar,DS/SC K. Bikshapathy, DS/HYB P. Surender, Divl. President/NED P. Govinda Rajulu,DP/GTL D. Reddappa,DS/GTL K. Jagapathi Raju, Secy/BVRM B. Venkatasubbaiah, DS/BZA B.K. Visweswara Rao, DS/GNT K. Hemanth Kumar, Divl. President



(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. 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. 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. 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. 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 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.


(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. 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. 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. 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. 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. As regards deduction of income tax, whatever arrears are paid to the employees, it is from 1-12006 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. 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


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.
