Obsolete nomenclature

by S. Tamilcholai

The concept of average pay for payment of leave salary in Rlys.was given adieu decades back. Yet, it is strange that we have terms like"leave on average pay"(LAP) & "leave on half average pay"(LHAP). No other central govt.dept or any state govt.has such obsolete, out-dated & irksome terminologies. The said terms should be replaced by "Privilege Leave" & " Half Pay Leave". This small yet long due change should be got done by our IRPS fraternity.

leave

by n. ramaswami

i entirely agree with tamilcholai but the term privilege leave may connote some other thing which may have legal implication as leave cannot claimed as a matter of right while a privilege may be claimed as a matter of right. it would be a good idea to coin a new terminology for such obsolete outdated irksome ones. we also have something called leave without pay, ex india leave etc. all these need change. i dont know if there has been change in rules with regard to purchase of simple items like rubber stamps and ball point pens even by administrative officers for their office use, as when i was in service, there was an accounts objection for purchase of rubber stamp (for making routine entries in SR in bulk through rubber stamps)and i know there was an audit objection for purchase of ball pen (in the place of ink powder and steelpen as they used to be called and in place of copying pencils!!!! supplied by the stores department). I have always been insisting and still do that a relook into all the codes need be done and unnecessary obsolete items should be deleted. when Mr. Tiruvengadam was there in Board he had commissioned me to revise DAR wbich i remember to hae done(three decades ago) and in SC Rly. they had issued avenue charts for all categories and delegation of powers for all departments.
May be we dont have substitutes (I understand in that place we go in for contract workers - nurses doctors etc)but i dont know if they have removed the rule(?)from IREM that for substitute apptt. one has to go through employment exchange ( a substitute is appointed for a limited period and only in emergencies!!!). I mention this case because in my own case i had to fight a vigilance (though this is not a vigilance case but a departmental discretion)right upto the President of India to get a censure cancelled - though it cost me my promotion!!!!!!!!!! People like tamilcholai who have only recently retired should be able to get all these things done now and IRPS fraternity should join together.

Leave

by S. Tamilcholai

I am of the humble view that there will be no legal implication due to suggested change as there is difference between 'privilege' & 'right'. The term 'privilege leave'equivalent to our LAP is used in banks. The term used by other depts.or state govts.for 'LAP' is 'earned leave'or 'privilege leave'. I raised this issue before the then Advisor(Staff) during a meeting with Hqrs.Personnel Officers of S.C.Rly about 8 years back. He appreciated the point and told that this point would be examined. But, nothing happened. As regards substitutes, GMs are competent to approve their engagements and there is no need to go thro' Employment Exchange. It is high time that Railways having an exclusive central Gr'A' service for estt.matters change such meaningless nomenclatures though belatedly. Better late than never!

Re: Leave

by n. ramaswami

good point tamil cholai and now that the advisor staff is himself an officer from s.c. railway he may do something in this regard. regarding substitutes i made a mention since in irem it appears there is a para stating that for appointment of substitutes one should go through employment exchanges. i think it would be futile to approach a gm for appointing a substitute nurse for a month or continue one as such as even MSs were competent in those days and i think it is still continued. afterall it is two and half decades that i retired and rules might have changed for the better but what i mean to suggest is that those who retired recently and those who are in service should be able to suggest such things. there is an advisor staff and he must be able to get these things sorted out. of course things would go in a better way only if we have a member staff who knows his job and who is from the cadre (it is beyond one's comprehension as to how a member staff who is dealing with vigilance also is from other cadre while a member electrical is from that cadre,member engineering is from that cadre and member mechanical is from that cadre and an fc is from that cadre!!!!!!).

Re: regulersation of adhoc period

by efghi

once they are approved by the UPSC and given group A they are automatically fitted in the batch from which they are given group A.by the Railway board from the day a service is formed. this is a general rule and asking for railway boards letter (!!!) is of no use. Please address railway board for authority based on which they are doing it and they will say that is the rule of UPSC. i am afraid during the adhoc promotion to sr. scale you get only a certain amount as addition and not the grade itself.( i always use to call it as casual labour sr. scale or casual labour j.a grade!!!) the grade starts only from the date you are absorbed in group A and that date is the criteria and you dont need the railway board's authority.

Regularisation of ad-hoc period

by S. Tamilcholai

Senior Scale is a Group'A' post as is clear from Rule Nos.111(2)(a)&(d) of Indian Railway Establishment Code, Vol.I(IREC, VOL.I on account of which, a Group'B' Officer is promoted on ad-hoc basis to a Sr.Scale post as per the Railway Board's decision given under Rule No.209 of IREC, Vol.I. The said ad-hoc promotion would get regularised on induction into Group'A' and the seniority (DOITS)in Group'A' would be determined by giving weightage of 50% of Group'B' service subject to a maximum of 5(five) years. The ad-hoc service in Sr.Scale,if any, prior to DOITS would not be taken into account as regular Group'A' service with Grade Pay of Rs.6600/-.I hope that the doubt is cleared.

Regularisation of ad-hoc promotion.

by S. Tamilcholai

The case alluded by Mr/Ms.Nameless Faceless is that of Sri.K. Thiagarajan, CPO(A)/S.C.Rly who unfortunately died while in service. After that case of assignment of seniority in Group'A' earlier to a date he joined Rly.service as Section Officer thro' RBSS(Group'B'), the methodology for assignment of seniority on promotion to Gr'A' was changed. However, for academic interest,the judgment of the apex court upholding the assignment of seniority on promotion to Gr'A' may pl.be seen in the case of A.K.Nigam Vs Sunil Misra pronounced on 13.5.1994 by Justice Yogeshwar Dayal. Citation: 1994 Supo(2) SCC 245.It is reiterated that the system of assignment of seniority on promotion to Gr'A'adopted in the said case has subsequently been changed.

With the new government displaying extremely keenness on carrying out restructuring and reforms in the Indian Railways, change at the apex level in the Board is expected shortly. With separation of policy making and executive functions, the powers of the Board would now be severely restricted. Most of the railway officers are eagerly waiting for the changes to be initiated.

Rbss vs grp A services

by NamelessFaceless

In all probability , it will b a bit difficult to stop RBSS from aiming and achieving higher posts and fast promotion in Board and the best strategy could be to include them rather than to exclude them .The RBSS cadre and posts at dy secy level or US level onwards need to be merged with IRAS and IRPS suitably modifying the 50 Percent of promotional qouta in these services . The earlier decision to exclude them from entering IRPS was one of the great blunters our seniors as IRPS till date have do not have any influence in any of the policy decions of the board . Perhaps some smart RBSS turned IRPS at the top by this would have shaped a better role for IRPS

Some three editions were brought out and then i had left writing as i find it difficult.

by NamelessFaceless

It is not clear how celebration of such days (IRSE day,IRSME day,IRAS day, IRPS day etc.) is helpful to railway officers or railway organisation?

It is simply a wastage of resources in a poor country.

It is time for all railwaymen to serve India and desist from wastage of economic resources.

All railway officers belong to railway department (which is facing worst economic crisis).

Age for comp.appointment

by S. Tamilcholai

Upper age limit for appointment on compassionate grounds may be relaxed on merits of the case. In respect of appointments in Group"C" posts, the Chief Personnel Officer is competent to accord approval for upper age relaxation. DRMs may relax upper age limit for appointment in erstwhile Group"D" posts. Though the lower age limit is 18 years for appointment in Railways, the General Managers may personally approve upto one year in the lower age limit prescribed and beyond one year of relaxation in the lower age limit, the case is to be referred to the Railway Board for approval. Ref: Board's letter no. E(NG)III/79/RC-1/47, dt:29.11.1979 recapitulated in para VI(a) of Railway Board's Master Circular No.16.

Clarification on comp.appt.

It is left to the discretion of the authority competent to approve the C.G.appointment to take into account the financial condition of the family, number of dependents in the family, the age of the dependents and the settlement amounts including family pension, if any and other relevant factors and arrive at a conclusion. The guiding factor for extension of the benefit of C.G.appointment is to relieve the family of the deceased of the sudden financial stringency/deprivation caused by the sudden death of the emloyee.

DPO & CVI named in FIR for recruitment Scam.

by NewsWatcher

NEW DELHI: The Central Bureau of Investigation on Sunday unearthed a major recruitment scam in Indian Railways with the arrest of 13 students, an advocate and a chief vigilance inspector for the leak of examination of assistant railway locomotive pilots. The main accused in the scam is absconding, sources said.

CBI officials say that several senior railway officials, including a divisional personnel officer in Bangalore and a chief vigilance inspector, are under the scanner. The question papers for the exam of locomotive pilots were allegedly leaked for Rs 5 lakh each.

CBI sleuths raided a flat in Bangalore at 6.30am on Sunday and found 13 students there with the question papers, said sources.

The candidates, appearing for the exam, were arrested along with an advocate G Sri Ramappa and chief vigilance inspector of South Western Railways — S Mahesh. In its FIR, CBI has also named divisional personnel officer of South Western Railways, T Shivana, and another person identified as R Dayanand apart from the 13 candidates. The accused have been charged with criminal conspiracy, cheating and under sections of the prevention of corruption act.
Sources say that the 13 aspirants were kept in the flat with a promise that the question paper of the examination, which was scheduled to be held on Sunday, would be leaked for a bribe of Rs 5 lakh each.

The spokesperson said after taking the 13 candidates into custody, residences of the other accused were also searched and some sample question papers and cash amounting to Rs 1.5 lakh were seized.

CBI officials say they conducted the raids on the basis of a tip-off that question papers were being leaked.

The assistant loco pilot examination is conducted by the Railway Recruitment Board. The assistant loco pilot assists the loco pilots in driving and other duties besides attending to minor repairs.

Rail TV

by nk


I think time has come that Railway Board to should seriously consider opening of Rail TV. I only see gains and gains from such a move.

1. Rail TV can be easy and extremely cheap method of information dissemination through 'Train based News' for crores of railway travelers everyday.
2. Rail TV can hugely cut costs of many ongoing publicity drives of Indian Railways.
3. Besides, Railway can initiate new publicity drives which can hugely enhance safety of the railways.
4. Rail TV it can generate healthy debate/information for various ongoing projects of modernization.
5. For job seekers, Rail TV can be easy information channel as RRB and RRC can use this medium to disseminate quick information to the candidates and dramatically cut advt costs.
6. I am sure many such publicity drives are needed by other departments as well.
7. Advt can generate easy revenue which can make this tv economically viable project.
8. Tourism information can also be given through this channel.

ah ah ah yes indian railways papiyonka service or prayaschit service is better than what were earlier coined. if you are really interested about case studies of this service serving please get a copy of 'Indian Case Studies' by N.Ramaswami, with TR Publications, Chennai 17. this IRPS officer had taken the route to vent his grievances through these case studies (on the advice of his friend in Railway Board in those days, overheard conversation during lunch there in one of those rooms!). Some CPOs had obtained copies for their libraries in railways.

HRD Role?

by non IRPS

What is role of IRPS and Personnel Department on IR? Just left to cadre restructuring, PNM,PREM, surrender of posts?

Who or which department is responsible for Human Resource Department (HRD)? Who will ensure replacement of retiring ministerial staff on IR? Or are we railwaymen waiting for elimination of ministerial cadre from IR?

Our main recruitment is now from RRC (Group D), TADK, CGA, Sports quota and Cultural quota (including scouts/guide). Those recruited against sports quota simply play games and earn salary. Who will do work in field?

It seems that ensuring HRD is no one's responsibility on IR.

replacement of ministerial staff

by

It is essential to man ministerial staff posts in field which cannot be surrendered. these can be manned by technical staff as done in electrical deptt for long time. eg: store clerk which could not be created due to lack of matching surrenders is manned by technician gr.1 or gr.2 depends on aptitude. In cases of vacant ministerial posts in large departments like mech deptt, engg deptt the posts to be converted as txr or pwi and slowly merge with cadre and reduce no: of cadres. the justification is that if you see the history of last 50 years, ministerial staff were paid less. for economical reasons or lack of availability of technical staff, those posts were created.Now that technical staff and ministerial staff are paid same salary and technical staff are avilable plenty, it is time to convert as many cadres as possible to technical for flexibility and productivity. Can we afford to have 526 cadres in a division and do regular selections? Can you imagine the no: of selections held in 66 divisions and volume of work and risk involved? small deptts are not happy because of lack of flexibility, so also small cadres are not happy because of lack of faster promotions. it is time to merge as many cadres as possible to give happiness, flexibility for postings and also get productivity.
