    • Sustained focus will be given to creation of infrastructure in form on Mission 3000 MT by 20230. The investment plan to implement it requires Capex investment of Rs 8.5 Lakh Cr over the next five years.
  • He expressed that with these sustained efforts the modal share will shift toward railways, which will ultimately help in reduction of logistic cost and improve the overall economy.
  • Regarding Manpower, CRB&CEO expressed that our dedicated manpower was our best asset, which continues to work round the clock. He mentioned a few initiatives taken for HR Management and Staff Welfare:-
  • As part of endeavour to bring in transparency in the system, for the first time in the history of Indian Railways Centralised Computer based examinations (CBT) for promotion to Group ‘B’ posts in Organised Services were introduced to reduce human interference and time taken for holding these selections.
  • 5,619 Compassionate Ground cases have been settled out of 6,287 pending cases i.e. around 90% cases have been finalised.
  • Finalised 2,021 cases of medical de-categorization, which is more than 91% of the pendency and accrual.
  • Directions have been issued for speedier disposal of mutual transfer and own request transfer cases:
    • As a result, 5,297 case (around 74%) of mutual transfer have been implemented
    • 3,951 cases of Own Request Transfer also have been considered along with 4,828 cases of Inter-Divisional Transfer

  • Post Retirement Complimentary Pass entitlement of employees retired in different Pay Commission has been rationalised and uniform entitlement on the basis of “Status cum PLPM” has been introduced.
  • Instructions have been issued for adhering to the guidelines for ensuring safety, security and empowerment of women and girls in their workplace.
  • In order to address the evolving needs of Railway servants and their family, a new head named ‘Promotion of Mental Health and Well Being of the employees’ has been introduced in the ‘Staff Benefit Fund’ namely
  • Regarding HRMS, he mentioned that out of all 22 modules of HRMS envisaged to digitise various service and establishment related aspects, 11 modules have been successfully implemented in their entirety across entire Indian Railways and 60% of the HRMS project has been completed by this time. With concerted and sustained efforts on all fronts, the whole HRMS project including all the remaining modules is likely to be implemented in second half of 2023.
  • CRB&CEO hoped that many such initiatives and policy decisions will continue to be taken for benefit of our Railway employees and their family members.
  • CRB&CEO thanked AIRF for their continued cooperation and conveyed his best wishes for the financial year 2023-24.


Dr. N. Kanniah, President/AIRF welcomed CRB&CEO, Board Members and other officers.

He mentioned that the All India Railwaymen Federation, do not differentiate between Railway Officers and Railway men. We treat all of us, as one family i.e. Railway Family.

I would like to recall your memory about the past, present and the future. Before that, I would like to mention about the current performance of Indian Railways.

In the last Financial Year, the Indian Railways had achieved several milestones, one of them being, the Earning of Rs.2.44 Lakh Crores as the Total Revenue and when it was compared with the Preceding Year Revenue of Rs.1.91 Lakh Crores, We have recorded 27.5% of increase in our Total Earnings.

The above milestone was achieved by us, with a record vacancy of 3.12 Lakhs of Railway men in all “Group-C” Cadres. In that, Almost, 50% of the vacancies where existing in Safety Categories, like Station Masters, Loco Pilots, Train Managers and Other Operating / Technical Staff. Yet, we have moved 1512 Million Tonnes of Freight, which was over 6.63% higher than the previous year and also we have achieved the Record Revenue of Rs.57,662.61 Crores in Passenger Segment, Surpassing the last year Passenger Earnings of Rs.33,944.39 Crores and We can Proudly claim that, our Operating Ratio will improve to 96.98%, when compared with previous year figure of 98.93%.

The record performance was achieved only because of the tireless efforts and hard work done by our Esteemed Brother CRB cum CEO & his Team of Officials along with our Brothers and Sisters in the field, all part of our Railway Family.

However, Unfortunately, never before in the history of Indian Railways, almost All Zones have failed to pay OTA, TA and even NDA, right from February 2023 to Our Employees, who are working day-in and day-out. Of course, they were told that, there was no Grant / Fund and it will be paid in the coming months, with arrears.

At the same time, in CRB’s Speech, he had mentioned that, 1,31,000 Employees have been recruited this year and they are going to join into our system, before 31st March 2023 but, when I Pointed out that by that time around 50,000 Employees will also Retire from Service, Our CRB assured that, in future also, the Recruitment process will Continue.

We, the AIRF, appreciate our CRB’s move and also request that, there should be a time bound Calendar for filling up of the Vacancies.

Immediately, under the leadership of AIRF, the Officials of Group ‘A’ Officers Association Met our than Prime Minister, Shri Atal Bihari Vajpaee Ji, and appraised him, about the functioning of Railway System. At that time, the Cabinet Secretary and other higher officials were also present. We explained to them that, Only based on the Merit Order / Ranking in the UPSC Examination, the IAS Officers have been Placed on Top of our Railway Officers and the IAS Officials also based on their Position work in different Department and they Deal with files and take decision based on the Inputs they receive from their office / Field as the Case may be.

Whereas, the Railway Officers Working Culture’s are Entirely different, i.e., Right from their inception, they start their Career as Assistant Officers in field Level in Different Department and they work in Tandem with Group-B and Group-C (Erstwhile Group-D also) Employees and Progress in their Career from Division to Zone and to Apex Level thus gaining Rich / Vast Experience in their Field as well as develop wide Knowledge about other Department too as they work as a Team at every Level. When this was explain to the than Prime Minister by our AIRF Leaders, the move to induct the IAS Officials into Railway System was Given up and the than PM also directed the Top Officials concern not to Proceed with the Move.

Like this, the Same Government, on one fine morning, had issued a G.O. that, the Money value of our PTO & Passes, should be taken as Income and will be brought under Income Tax Net.

We are aware that, Most of Our Railway men and Officers are not using the Entire Eligible Quantum of PTO & Passes, because of their Work Pressure and inability to Avail their Own Leave even in Emergency Most of the Time. They hardly Travel with Family over a Long Distance and uses their Passes / PTO only to visit their Nearest Home towns. But the Government directed to take the Value of To and Fro Travel for the Farthest Distance as Income for the Purpose of Calculating Income Tax despite the fact that, the same was used only for a short Distance and Meagre a Money Value.

Immediately, under the leadership of AIRF, the Group ‘A’ & ‘B’ Officers Associations and RPF Association, has Conducted Several Protests Demonstrations and Agitations all over the Indian Railways and also the AIRF has Launched a Signature Campaign and Lakhs and Lakhs of Railway Employees and Officials signed the Memorandum and the same was submitted to the President, Prime Minister, Finance Minster and Railway Minister and Ultimately and our Unity forced the Government to retract and Withdrew the Order.

During the tenure of the then Government, erstwhile Post & Telecommunication was bifurcated as Postal and Telecommunication Department and Telecommunication was made as a Separate Corporation in the Name of “BSNL” in the year 2000.

Starting from 2004 the than Government, entertained the Private Players and in the name of improving the System, they allowed the Private Players and bought the Components / Materials from Multi Nationals and awarded Licences to Foreign Companies and Introduced the 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G etc., But, deliberately , the than Government did not permitted the BSNL Corporation to Upgrade their Services on Par with Private Players there by the BSNL was Pushed into Red and in debt Traps.

At the same time, I would like to mention that, even after, the mushrooming of International Telecom Companies in India, When the Present Government of India wanted to Lay an Optical Fibre to Andaman, through Bay of Bengal and approached the Private Players to lay the same, they had refused to do that, because they are not able to do the same, Only the State owned 100% Public Limited BSNL and its dedicated Employees alone took up this task and laid the cable through Bay of Bengal Sea to the Andaman’s due to their commitment to the Nation using the vast Experience they have Obtained over the Years.

Three years ago, the present Government had mentioned in the Parliament that, BSNL is running under loss and a VRS Scheme was announced for those, who are willing to go on VRS and the benefits of going on VRS, were also attractively presented before the employees of BSNL and around Rs.3000 Crores was supposed to have been earmarked for granting Compensation / Settlement, to the BSNL employees, going on VRS.

As you are aware that, because of the offer made by the Government, lot of BSNL employees, who were in the Age Group of 45 Years to 55 Years, submitted their request for VRS. After accepting the VRS, it was announced that, the settlement benefits will be given, only after they attain 60 years of age.

The BSNL has more than 75,000 Towers across the Country, for providing communication service across the length and breadth of the Country and now most of the Towers has been leased out to the private players. Thereafter, our GS/AIRF, who is a Convenor of JCM Constituent, myself and other BSNL Employees Federations Officials met the concerned Ministers and top officials and had a meeting on this issue and after a marathon discussion, it was agreed to settle the VRS and other benefits, in a phased manner to the BSNL employees.

Similarly, such situation prevails in the case of Defence Production Units’ employees also. While making the Defence Production Units as a “Corporation”, it was agreed that, their lien will be maintained for a period of 2½ years. Initially, for first six months, they were getting their salary, on the first day of calendar month. After six months, their salaries were paid only between 10th & 15th, like how it happened in Air India and BSNL. When the Employees protested for not getting salary in the first of calendar month, the Corporation Officials informed that, they had to borrow Rs.278 Crores from other sources. Not only that, they were not getting any settlement and pension also.

Like in the case of BSNL, as usual, our GS/AIRF, JCM Convenor, myself and Officials of Defence Employees Federations, met the Defence Ministers and other top officials and after discussion, they announced that, there will be settlement of dues and pension also.

Coming back to the present issue, I am not able to understand that, why the Government of India wants to Privatize, Corporatize and Monetize the Indian Railways. We are aware that, Our Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and the present Railway Minister had mentioned in the Parliament that, Indian Railways will not be Privatized. At the same time, they said, We have to Compete with Corporate and Foreign Companies.

Initially, it was announced that, 150 Trains, 12 Clusters and also 109 Train Routes were proposed to be Privatized. How Air India was given to the Private Players, like that, they wanted to give to the private players and Railways started with Tejas Express. But, there were no takers. The same New Delhi-Mumbai-Ahmedabad Tejas Express was given to IRCTC. After that, instead of Privatization, they changed the name as “Monetization”.

They wanted to give 165 Good Sheds and 400 Stations, But, that is also not worked out, as there are no takers.

I would like to mention that, there is no difference between “Privatization” and “Monetization”. “Monetization” means selling our assets or leasing out assets. Again, the Railway Ministry had announced that, Rs.1,52,000 Crores worth of assets will be monetized, by selling or leasing out of assets. That also did not work out. At the same time, I am not blaming the Railway Board, because we are aware, eventually what is going to happen. Even, the Railway Ministry will not be able to do anything, because directions are coming from “Niti Aayog” and other top level Ministries.

Again, the Railway Ministry wanted to privatize 90 Trains in Konkan Railway, 200 Stations, 165 Goods Sheds, 761 KMs Track and Railway Colonies. That also did not work out, because there were no takers. The Foreign Companies and Corporates are aware that, in Indian Railways AIRF and their Affiliates, are very strong and without their co-operation, it is difficult to run the System, because of that only, they were hesitant to Participate in the Railways Proposed Plan.

Sir, now I would like to discuss about the future. Initially, “Niti Aayog” had mentioned that, we have to follow the PPP Model. The same “Niti Aayog” came out and mentioned that, PPP Model has failed and they announced that, “EPC Model” will be followed, i.e. “Engineering Procurement and Construction”, wherein, the Contractor would be made responsible for all activities, right from Designing, Procuring, Constructing, Commissioning and finally handing over the deliverables to the owner or operator, with funding from Government. On this aspect, I would like to give an example, wherein at Chennai Egmore, in the name of EPC, initially they allotted Rs.750 Crores, for re- development of Chennai Egmore Station and also construct Malls and they had taken land area up to Old Dasa Prakash areas. Then, they allotted Rs.1100 Crores for this development.

Here, I would like to mention, Sir, in Chennai, there is very famous and oldest Mall in Tamil Nadu, by name “Spencer Mall” and it was doing very well. Ten years ago, another “City Centre” Mall was constructed by a Dubai Company. Then, “Spectrum Mall” came up and six months later, “Express Avenue Mall” came up. Recently, “Phoenix Mall” near Velacherry came up. What we are seeing now is, as and when a New Mall comes up, the existing Malls start losing footfalls and there are many Shops in such Malls, remaining vacant, for months and years together. When the situation is like this, why, Tax Payers’ money should be wasted in these projects. I have every right to mention this, because we are also tax payers. Our money involved is Rs.1700 Crores.

If we construct a Mall or Shopping Complex, it is not going to fetch any profit. Unnecessarily, we are going to waste our money. Why I am mentioning this is, our CLW in the year 2019, produced 431 AC Locomotives and on 28-03-2013, produced 12 AC Locomotives on a single day. Whereas, now, the CLW is totally ignored and a contract is signed with M/s. Siemens, which is worth Rs.26,000/- Crores for supply of 12,000 Locomotives of 9000 Horse Power in the coming years. When CLW can produce the Locomotives under “Make in India” concept, why, the CLW is being ignored?

I would like to mention that, ICF made “Train 18” Set, at a cost of Rs.98 Crores and it was doing well. The name was changed as “Vande Bharat” and now we are given to understand that, making of 112 “Vande Bharat” Trains will be allotted to Lattur Manufacturing Facility, at a cost of Rs.27,000 Crores. The Men, material, space etc., will be supplied by the Indian Railways. Salary of staff will be paid by the Indian Railways for manufacturing the Train Sets, in the name of Buy Back System. It is understood that, Railway Ministry will buy each Train Set, at a cost of Rs.127 Crores. Unfortunately, the Train Sets will be maintained by the private players. It is learnt that, for maintenance of such Train Set, each year, 3.5% of the Train Set cost will be borne by the Indian Railways, for 35 years, i.e. Rs.4 Crores and 45 Lakhs per year, per Train Set.

Also it is reliably learnt that, manufacturing of Vande Bharat Trains are given to Russian TMH as a Joint Venture with RVNL, at a cost of Rs.120 Crores per set and also Titagarh- BHEL JV will be given for manufacture of 80 Vande Bharat Train Sets, at a cost of Rs.140 Crores.

We are aware of the constraints and restrictions, under which, the Railway Board is forced to implement these projects. We are also aware that, because of the excessive pressure, Board was forced to accept the above and we also know eventually what is going to happen in these projects.

My humble request to you, Sir, unless we are all united, in the interest of “Save Indian Railways” and “Save Nation”, a delegation comprising of Railway men, from the highest level to the lowest level, with the permission of the Hon’ble Minister for Railways, should go and represent to the highest level of Government of India, appraise them, the real situation and also convince the top level officials of Government of India that, Sisters and Brothers of Railway Family, comprising Employees and Officials together, can achieve anything under the principles of “Make in India” and there won’t be any requirement for offloading of All our Indigenous activities Carried out by our Railways.

Shri Shiva Gopal Mishra, General Secretary AIRF

1. A calendar should be issued for holding PNM Meetings as also meetings of the DC/JCM regularly.

2. It is understood that, around 1,48,000 vacancies are being filled-up out of 2,56,000 vacancies currently available in Indian Railways. However, by the end of the year 2023, the number of vacancies shall again become around 2,50,000, as such process of the recruitment should continue, so that, a large-number of vacancies do not exist on Indian Railways.

3. Although, on vigorous persuasions by AIRF, Course Completed Railway Act Apprentices have been recruited against 20% Quota earmarked for them, however, there are various problems, particularly in regard to Batch No.109 that belongs to the year 2019. Applications of around 3000 Course Completed Railway Act Apprentices of the said batch have also been accepted online and they have been declared pass as well, and some of them have undergone medical examination for the purpose of recruitment, but during the process of documents verification they are being denied appointment on flimsy grounds. It is requested that, since they have already passed all the examinations and all the requisite documents are now available with them, they should also be absorbed, along with other Course Completed Railway Act Apprentices, in the Railways as there are still large-number of vacancies existing against this quota. Apart from this, some of the Act Apprentices are not being considered on other grounds of certification in regard to reservation, overage, disability, passing medical examination in C-1, B-2 medical classification. Since these Act Apprentices have qualified under 20% Quota reserved for them, they should not be denied appointment and considered for their absorption in the Railways. AIRF has requested that the DG(HR), in consultation with the EDE(N) and ED(T&MPP), Railway Board, should examine this issue in detail in association with the Representatives of AIRF and relief should be given to these Course Completed Railway Act Apprentices.

4. In situ upgradation of 30% post in Level 1(GP Rs.1800) to Level 2(GP Rs.1900) already agreed to by the former CRB & CEO and FC.

5. Immediate review of the instructions issued by Railway Board under RBE No.105/2022 dated 30.08.2022 in regard to Running Staff.

6. Residency Period for restructuring of the leftover Supervisory Staff (in erstwhile GP of Rs.4600) from Level-8(GP Rs.4800) to 9(GP Rs.5400) should be reduced from 04 years to 02 years as in all other cases of promotion it is 02 years.

7. Waive off the Recovery from the staff given benefit of fixation of pay on promotion between 01.01.2006 to 30.08.2008 under RBE No.33/2016.

8. Acceptance of the Inter Railway and Division own request transfer of the staff in the wake of new recruitment panels.

9. Benefit of free electricity, announced by various State Governments, should also be extended to the occupants of the Railway Accommodation as Railway Administrations are levied Electricity Charges at par with other consumers of the Electricity Boards.

10. Instructions in regard to the norms and procedure for recruitment, incentives and out-of-turn promotions for the Sportspersons are required to be consolidated and all the instructions should be issued in a single letter; superseding all the previous one.

11. Existing provisions regarding transfer of Track Maintainer to other Departments under Intake Quota are to be modified, considering the suggestions given by the Federation, and necessary instructions may be issued early.

12. Arbitrary surrender of the posts without consultation of the Recognised Unions.

13. Written Examination for promotion as Sr. Clerk should be dispensed with.

14. Yardsticks of the CLI, considering counselling of ALPs also.

15. Dog Box in LHB Coaches in the cabin of Trains Manager is creating arduous condition, which is very difficult to sail with.

16. Age old policies related to staff matters are being revised by the Railway Board frequently without prior consultation with the Recognised Federation.

17. C.G. Appointment to the second wife was raised by the Federation long back, to which orders were issued by the Railway Board, but these orders were implemented from the date of issue of the letter, which is defeating the purpose as earlier cases are not being covered for whom it was raised by the Federation.

18. Railway Board’s orders regarding merger of the Elect. and Mech. Cadres are not being implemented on any Railway even after regular persuasions of our affiliated unions.

19. Redistribution of the staff has created a situation that the General Services Cadre is becoming nil, leaving no space for any further redistribution of the staff for TRD, Signal Cadre and newly created assets. Situation is alarming to consider creation of posts in such areas.

20. GDCE is not being conducted regularly by many Railway Zones.

21. No significant improvement is seen in the TTEs Running Rooms.

22. Railway Board’s orders of 2007 to provide Wrist Watch to Track Maintainers/Keymen/Mate/ Gatemen are not being implemented.

23. Federation is demanding to give financial upgradation to Trains Manager under MACPS since very long time, but the decision from the Railway Board is still awaited.

24. There is policy not to transfer SM, on rotation basis, performing only train passing duties, but the same was not being followed by ECR.

25. Federation is not agreed to Railway Board’s proposal regarding delegation of the powers to transfer an office bear of the Recognised Federation/Union from GM to DRM. AIRF strongly opposes this action of the Railway Board.

26. Undue harassment of the Running Staff

  • Running Staff are being asked to deposit their mobile phones, and after signing off they will not be allowed to contact their families during rest hours. CLIs will be sent to their homes for counselling their families.
  • Railway Board have abolished the post of Loco Pilot(Shunting) arbitrarily – Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.E(NG) I-2022/PM 7/10 dated 10.11.2022).
  • Report of the High Power Committee, constituted under the Chairmanship of Shri D.P. Tripathi, to review duty hours of Running and other Safety Related Categories of Staff, regarding imposition of lighter punishment in case of SPAD incidences, has been thrown in the waste paper bucket and these staff are being Removed/Dismissed vehemently.
