Lr.No:DS/GTL.05/06/10/2013.                                                     GUNTAKAL
The Divisional Railway Manager,
South Central Railway,
Guntakal Divisional.

         Respected Sir,
                        Subject- Divisional Resolution of AILRSA

            Extended Divisional meeting was conducted under the chairmanship of Divisional                                          .            Secretary and passed the following resolution unanimously.

1. MEALS on run --- With reference to your instructions regarding eating meals while train on Run by crew, we submit that the schedule train timings does not provide any specific earmarked time to take food. Normally a train working duty at a stretch is around 8 to 10 hours, biologically human body requires food intake for every 4 to 6 hours, so when crew while working 8 to 10 hours does not take food will definitely lead to body weakness, giddiness and mental fatigue.          This will cause loss of reflexes and concentration which is serious safety hazard and also violation of one’s fundamental “Right to live`` as enshrined in constitution of India. Hence we request your good self to kindly allot time of at least 10 minutes for taking food (Breakfast/lunch/Dinner) and advice staff accordingly. So as to enable the train crew to take food at the allotted time. We further request that till such time the time allotment is advised to crew, taking food on duty should not be treated as un-authorized activity

2. PASSANGER TRAIN == Working of Train No: 57274/57273, TPTY - HBL - TPTY Intercity Passenger- One single crew working Ex: TPTY to GTL and GTL to TPTY. Total distance worked: 318 Kms. Number of stopping’s: 42.Over all duty hours exceeding 10 hours (As per record). Total wheel movement without any inactive period of duty: 08 Hrs. In this regard we submit that it is to satisfy the selfish motives of certain Vested interests in staff without any consideration for laid down norms of safety in train operations or public safety. Further there is no precedent/parallel to this type of strenuous and continuous duty/ working in whole Indian Railways. Here we submit that by permitting this unsafe passenger working, your good self would be ignoring a ticking bomb ready to explode any time bearing far reaching consequences.
                          In the interest of public safety we request your good self to order conducting scientific job analysis or appoint a committee of LI, TI ,SI and PWI to monitor this passenger working and record the very vital safety aspects with regard to sufficiency of Inter sectional running time, adherence to speed restrictions in loop lines/caution order spots as a consequence to the fatigue creeping in the working crew. The monitoring will definitely prove the fact that hapless crew discharging the duties with undiminished devotion are risking their life, career and security of family in working this train. If this problem is not resolved quickly, it will lead to depression and distress among the crew.
                        We request for reconstituting the Link and allow 02 Crews to work with relief at NRE/HX accordingly. Explicitly considering the cause and consequences of the recent SPAD cases prima facie the above facts deserve cognizance and urgent intervention in Right earnest. We sincerely believe that your good self will be sensitive to our agony and Will give due cognizance to the above grievances in right earnest and judicious Consideration in the best interest of administration, staff and Public Safety.

3.C&W STAFF-- At Renigunta yard every day CRS Attended coaches and other coaches are being attached to 57640(GNT-TPTY PASS) train to move EX:- RU-TPTY for further pit examination, but C&W staff  of Renigunta not making any endorsement on BPC and further On duty DYSS and SS/RU involving loco pilot in unnecessary arguments and thus creating mental agony as well train detention. Hence we request your good self to immediately intervene and instruct suitably to concern staff and avoid Crew and public inconvenience.

4.OUTSTATION DETENTION-- The cases of out-station detention of RU depot Loco Running Staff from Head Quarters for the month May2013 to Sep2013 is as follows:
                         Out station detention beyond 36Hrs up to 72Hrs---1000.
                         Out station detention beyond 72 Hrs----95.
Railway board issued orders vide Lr.No E (II) 2009/her/17 Dt 28.02.2010.
(RBE 37/2010) regarding reducing the absence of running staff from their Hqrs to 36 Hrs.
Railway board meeting minutes on SPAD issued vide Lr.No.2004/M(L)/466/7101,Dt 14.6.2012. We request implementation of the recommendation without any further delay. Because of high out station detention of staff from Hqrs they are not in Position to fulfill family needs which results in depression among staff and Effects on concentration in on duty.

1.                           The 7 Men Pass Link of RU depot was arbitrarily reduced to 6 Men Link, just to avoid Periodic Rest to Crew. This is Gross violation of HOER and injustice to the Renigunta depot Loco Running Staff. We request you to kindly implement 7 Men Link immediately and do justice to staff.
2.                           At Nandalur, RU based crew were not booked First-In-First-Out basis instead they were booked to their Whims and fancy to suit their convenience. This is gross violation of Railway board guidelines. We request you to kindly restore F-I-F-O booking.

3.                           Tr no 57477/57478 Ex:-TPTY-GTL-TPTY Via PAK,DMM  presently working throughout the night i.e. from 22 Hrs to 6Hrs which violation of Railway board meeting minutes on SPAD issued vide Lr no 2004/M(L)/466/7101, Dt 14.6.2012, which clearly restrict night duty working to 6 Hrs to loco running staff in preparing crew link. Hence we request for reconstituting the Link and allow 02 Crews to work with relief at MPL/KRY accordingly.

4.                           At Tirupati, out station guards are collecting CTR from LOCO PILOT at COMBINED CREW LOBBY, whereas some of Home station guards are not collecting CTR either at Lobby or at Engine, and refusing to collect. We request you to intervene and suitably instruct them in this regard.

5.                           Avoid Longer Hrs working of goods crew and crew interception which has become regular practice in div.

6.                           Crew relief should given for goods trains at Nandalur while coming from Renigunta irrespective of any Train.

7.                           Arrange ALP`S for DEMU`s also, single man working is high unsafe as fate of thousands of passengers life rest on loco pilot, with ALP in cab drastically reduces the chances of mistakes.

8.                           GARIB RATH and VASAVA Express EX-GTL-SC and GTL-SUR/SUR-GTL respectively are increasing duty hours. Kindly arrange relief crew at RC/CT and WD respectively.
Please do needful and advise accordingly. A reply in this regard is kindly solicited.

More than 50 comarades have attended but two Rlys. i.e SEC Rly, NWR, and some CEC members along with some Genl. Secys’ could not attend which you  will agree with me that, it is not a healthy sign of an militant organization, that is too, at today’s crucial time.  However, after thorough and detail discussion the following decisions are taken:-

1.       It is resolved to support whole heartily  the call for strike in Rlys. By AIRF/NFIR, if at all is materialized.  It is also resolved to request AIRF/NFIR to form a Jt. Committee like N.C.C.R.S  in 1974 in the interest of strengthening the strike and also for strong unity.  It will also be requested to include some important demands of Loco Running Staff which will be helpful to mobilize the loco men.

4.      Zonal Convention in the month of Dec. at the Convenience of Zone followed by Zonal demo. 

5.      Levy of Rs. 7000/- per year by Zones should be continued to pay for NIT expenditure and those are on defaulter, must clear their dues Levy for KUR Division is hence forth not needed.

Basudeo Acharia, Hon’ble M.P met with Hon’ble MR and handed over the memo enclosed with Secy. Report. Since the time of appointment by Minister for Labour was given late hence Com. Basudeo Acharia alone met with minister for Labour and discussed the issues raised in memo, enclosed with my report and minister for Labour responded positively.

Branch President--

Branch Secretary-                                                                          GUNTAKAL                                 Com.A.Prasad.                                                                                  10.12.2012

Divisional Railway Manager,
Guntakal Division,
Guntakal, S.C.R.
Respected Sir,
                        Sub: - A.I.L.R.S.A Guntakal Branch meeting & its Resolution-regarding.

                        AILRSA Guntakal Branch meeting was conducted on 10th Dec’2012, 10.00Hrs at AILRSA office, Guntakal under the Chairmanship of Sri G.N.Shaw, Divisional Secretary, Guntakal Division, S.C.Railway. The meeting has passed the following resolutions for your kind redressal please.
            a.) Newly implemented crew links w.e.f 26th Nov’2012 are violating the HOER and also not fulfilling the suggestions/conditions framed by the Railway Board in Lt.No. 2004/M(L)/466/7101, minutes of the meeting regarding SPAD cases held on 14-6-12 at New Delhi.
            b) .The Railway Board has stated that every efforts is to be made to restrict absence of running staff from HQs within 36 Hrs. Saying that it will not be operationally prudent to restrict this duration to 24 Hrs vide RBE.No. 37/2010.
            c) AILRSA/GTL Branch demanding all crew links to be revised as per above railway board instructions without any delay.
            i)          Cut off Tr. No. 17307/17308 (GTL-SUR-GTL) at   WD.
            ii)         Cut off Tr. No. 12627/12628 (GTL-SUR-GTL) at WD.
            iii)        Cut off Tr. No. 16593/16594 (GTL-SBC-GTL) at DMM
            Above are increases consecutive 6hrs, night duty between 22:00  to 06.00 hrs and longer hours working.
            iv)        Cut off Tr. No. 57437/57438(GTL-HUP-GTL) at  DMM since crew are not able to avail sufficient rest at HUP because after working train number 57437 ,
               a) Crew has to perform shunting at HUP yard. 
               b) Crew has to wait for shunting movements for hours together.
               c) Sometimes it will take 3 to 4 hrs.,
               d) More ever it is regular practice that the LP (P) of GTL Depot has
                    been forced to perform shunting at  HUP yard and     
               e) Force to work the Tr.No.57438 in under rest.  It’s nothing but a real
                    harassment to GTL crew at HUP. So AILRSA strictly demands cut of Tr. No. 57437/57438 at DMM (or) Provide shunter at HUP yard.
           v) In Crew link No.3 (20 LP) from Tr. No. 17415 (GTL-UBL) to Tr. No. 17308 (SUR-GTL) there are total 7 nights continuously which is purely violation of HOER.
            vi) Crew link No. 4 of 26 LP: - From Tr. No. 14416 (GTL-TPTY) to Tr. No. 11027 (GTL-RU) there are total 7 nights continuously. It is a violation of HOER.
            vii) Crew Link No. 5 of 10LP (M):- The trip Tr. No. 15015 (GTL-DMM) onward - Tr. No. 12731/12732 (DMM-GTL-DMM)/ and Pilot by T.N:- 57438 (DMM-GTL) w/o proper rest is cheating the staff in & by violating the HOER and showing PR  in advance of 28:35 hrs of following the trip is false in nature after  on duty & working 12731 DMM-GTL at 00.03 hrs. Mentioned in the crew links continue on duty to work 12732(GTL-DMM) at 02.40 hrs from arrival to departure, gap between two trains is 02.37 hrs in the  mid night and also after working 12732 GTL-DMM crew has  directed as Rt. to HQs by  Tr. No. P/57438 at 08.10 hrs w/o rest, as per HOER this is not acceptable. 
viii) Crew link No. 10 of 22 LP (P):- Cut off Tr. No. 5747/57472 at NRE it’s more than 6 hrs duty at a stretch in passenger link which in hence more tension to LP due to more no. of stopping’s, reception on Loop lines, frequently required more extra concentration, now it’s necessary to revise it and follow RBE-37/2010.
ix) Crew link No,-1 and Crew link No.-2  will be better , if merge together and make it 9 LP link or make Crew link No.- 1 as 4 Men’s link or make a Rajdhani link with Rajdhani, Garib Rath and Durante Exp together between SC-GTL & YPY.
x) In Crew link No-1,2 & 5 having Pilot working Ex. GTL-SC-GTL ,GTL-SBC,YPR-GTL, GTL- UBL etc .but ear- marked berth are not allotted in those trains. Kindly provide ear marked accommodation in those trains or CCC/GTL should made reservation according to trains & date.
x) Trains are leaving according to public time and Crew has to be ready accordingly. AILRSA request to make link as per public time table.
            a) Crew beats to be published and notified to staff through notice board.
            b) Implement 10 hrs duties strictly.
           c) Do not harass, or Black mail, staff it asking relief.
           d) Bring back goods crew with in 36 hrs to Hqs.
           e) Allow crew to avail required 22/30hrs.PRs 5/4 in a month respectively.
           f) Avoid over time working.
           g) Fill up Loco pilot goods vacancies as per requirement immediately.
            All Mail/Exp/Pass crew links are framed with 22 hrs periodical rest except link No. 01 of 3 LP, which is not sufficient to look after all the needs of family welfare in time.  More over choosing of periodical rest 30 hrs/22 hrs is the employee’s sole discretion but not administration.
            The running allowance committee-2002 observed it in para 6 of chapter-III of its report and it recommended that “The four rest of 30hrs duration in a month should be given Regularly and provision of five rests of 22 hrs should be used occasionally” The committee clearly realized the in adequacy of rest of 22 hrs. the running staff could not fulfill social obligation with this 22 hrs rest, even night bed rest crew cannot avail .Therefore AILRSA is demanding   that our periodical rest should be 30 hrs in all crew links and though there is a provision of compensatory rest in lieu of PRs foregone in the HOER but not been granted to any running staff till now and the foregone PRs may run into hundreds of days.  Hence we demand to issue a binding assurance that the staff will be granted 4 Nos. PRs of 30 hrs in a month without fail in case of PRs foregone, compensatory rest is to be granted without fail within one month as per HOER.  We demand that a separate record of PR, PR foregone, CR in lieu of PRs fore gone of every running staff should be maintained for effective implementation of HOER and such a register shall be open for scrutiny by the running staff.

            “An aspect which is of great importance in ensuring a driver’s well-being and alertness on duty is the condition of Running Rooms” observes by Railway Safety Review committee – 1988. Renigunta, Yeswanthapur(SWR), Wadi (CR) , Nandyal  Running rooms are very worst in condition for meals.
Renigunta running Room: - all beds, bed sheets and Mosquito nets are in pettiest condition. At present subsidized meals are being provided in Renigunta, Nandyal, Yeshanthapur Running Rooms but not in a satisfactory way. Many crew are avoiding to take the subsidized meals as the quality is very poor, though railway board are prescribed certain norms for quality of  running rooms and supply of subsidized meals , are not maintained by the contractors and their primary intention are  to make profit.  The officials and Supervisors of the railways who are entrusted with monitoring of the running room & its maintenance in fact are in hand in glory with the contractors.
            Particularly in YPR/HUP running room of SBC Div (SWR) our railway employee are suspecting that there is a very big scam in that running room. Subsidized meals system is only in notice board, there are no cooks, no stove and no vessel. The contractors people supplying cheep quality & outside food to crews. If crews are not willing to take that food they are paying Rs. 17/- for Breakfast, lunch and Dinner.  The running room care taker hiding the complaint book and whenever demanded, he has to give reply that compliant book is with Sr.DME. So AILRSA suspect that in this scam all officials are also involved.
            Guntakal Division officials are paying more interest to implement zonal link and sharing of trains but they are not assure/ensure  the facilities available at other division/zone  running rooms to their staff .This is very shame to us. All other division/Zone crews are enjoying the facilities of Guntakal Division running room except Renigunta Running room. Therefore AILRSA demands inspect of Renigunta and Yeshanthapur running rooms and immediately necessary action to be taken.

5) Miscellaneous:

(a) LP Postings : Some Sr.ALPs are attended  promotional course of  LPG  and after successful completion of LP training in DTTC/GTL, ETTC/BZA and ZRTI/MLY and even those got competent certificate from above officials , one CLI  made them unfit for promotion as LPG , there by Sr.DME denied the promotion. Which is injustice and unconstitutional for right of employee, AILRSA/GTL Branch demand to arrange another LI to recouncel them and make them fit, if eligible.  Your imminent intervention expected. Those employees should be given three chances to improve themselves.

(b)  Extended Run : Our Guntakal crew are forced to work in other railway zone without  undergoing their G&SR  training and  competent certificate issued by  their ZTC/ZRTI/ Zonal training Center/School, which is highly unsafe practice and no one permitted to work any train, in any section w/o validity of certificate of those Railways. Kindly arrange to send all LP for their ZRTI for training or cancel Zonal link immediately.

(c) Grievances Register : Grievances register provided in the lobby but all staff are not satisfied because many grievances are not dealt properly in time and written reply are not provided in this regards. So the existence of Grievance register in lobby is dubious.

(d) Guntakal lobby condition:
(1)  Loco Inspectors are working as chief Crew Controller. Chief Crew Controller posts belongs to amongst the Loco Pilot. So depute / select and fill up it with Loco Pilot of Guntakal Depot immediately.
(2) Loco pilot goods are working as Shunters instead of trained Sr. ALP’s are available. (3) Long standing Chief Power Controller / Power Controllers / Crew Controllers to be sent to open line immediately and fresh selection to be conducted. New LPs should be given opportunities to work as CPRC/PRC/CC.
(4) Stop harassing staff by CCC/GTL by not granting leave, not issuing sick memos, not allowing to take PR, forcing staff to work out of turn and under rest.
(5) Fill up all Loco Pilot vacancies (in Mail/Pass/Goods/SHR/ALP) immediately.
(6) Maintain 30 percentage leave reserved.
(7) All LP/ALPs should be utilized in Mail/Pass link as per their seniority, since out of term encouraging corruption among staff.
(8) Some LPs and ALPs are utilizing for non running duties (as a Clerk) years together, they are not having LRs in any section even having acquitted Crew position in Guntakal depot and they are claiming full mileage.  Why only that particular staff are utilized for non running duties for years together. Is only officials are benefited from them?
(9) Please arrange toilets for on duty staff in Guntakal lobby, this is the very minimum requirement of work place, all staff are feels very difficulties in emergencies. Long back Sr.DPO/GTL has issued order in .this regards but till not implemented.
(e) SPAD:
These cases are increasing in GTL Division even though divisional authority is on mute spectator in taking proper remedial action. Workloads are increasing day by day many folds on Loco Pilots; LP’s are denied their privilege and social welfare by branch Officers. AILRSA GTL Branch request divisional authority to re-think deeply and implement the order of Ministry of Railway (Railway Board).  Lt.No.2004/M/(L)/466/7101, New Delhi dt. 14/06/2012 this was addressed to all GM’s to make efforts to implement.
We expect our demand would be consider in positive manner with suitable justice towards Guntakal depot running staff privilege.  We are always a front runner to improve the economy and safety of Railways.

Loco Pilots March to Commissioner of Railway Safety Office , Bangalore on 07.06.2012. 10.00hrs from Bangalore City railway Station.

Dear friends,,
            On 22-05-2012 Hampi express met with an accident at 3.15 hours at Penukonda station of Bangalore division with 25 deaths and injury to many. Railways immediately said the reason for accident is HUMAN-FAILURE, and if so, one should ponder for the reasons behind it.

     Mr.SAM PITRODA in his report on railway modernization stated that railways are dreaming to achieve requirements of 21st century with a bureaucracy having a mindset of 20th century with rules and laws of 19th century! The inhuman rules of 19th century under the HOER is the real villain in railways causing accidents. The Hon.Rly minister MUKUL ROY after visiting accident spot said that, he will use ACD (anti collision device)  extensively to prevent collisions  and ask for funds from finance ministry, but refused to say that, I will change the inhuman rules of HOER.
     The ill fated crew of Hampi express admitted that his eyelids went close for a few seconds beyond his physical control and missed the home signal. From 14th May to 19th May the said loco pilot was booked to work six continuous nights and on 20th May he got a night rest and on 21st May he was booked to work next night train,  the Hampi express. According to the HOER after continuous six night working, he got a night rest but after that on next night duty he had a micro sleep. Micro sleep is a sleep which may last for 30 to 60 seconds which is the result of accumulated sleep deprivation, mental fatigue etc and often the person is not aware of the sleep that has occurred. A train running at 100KMPH will pass 1.7 KMS in 60 seconds and if micro sleep occurs after a distant signal at caution, accident will happen. Is there any biological studies done for  justifying six continuous night duty rule of HOER which is beyond human capacity? To overcome this safety hazard of micro sleep, the RDSO recommendation of limiting continuous night duties to two should be incorporated in HOER.
     The excess noise pollution up to100 decibels in locomotives against the permitted 75 decibels by pollution control board, excess heat, dust pollution etc in driving cab contributes to early fatigue to loco pilots which distracts their attention & concentration on duty. The railways are so callous that they are not willing to standardise the location of horns above the head lights which will reduce noise pollution in driving cab avoiding rebounding of sound with coaches in spite of having a research wing like RDSO. Loco Sheds are not willing to provide rigid locking arrangements to control compartment doors and nose compartments doors causing excess noise and heat in cab. As a solution to cab ergonomics, AC cab was demanded by AILRSA, which will be heat, noise and dust proof.  Ex-Rly minister MAMTA BANARJEE had approved and declared it, but railways are not willing to implement.
     Visibility from the loco is a big casualty in long hood driving and SIKRI Committee had
recommended short hood driving in view of safety. But railways further extended the length of long hood 5 meters more than WDM2 in WDP4/WDG4 with projection of radiator room and battery box reducing visibility largely with a seant regard to safety. During rainy season visibility is further reduced due to bad quality wipers or non working wipers. The short hood working can be achieved by renewing old steam turning tables or turning at triangle sections near junction stations.
     The reflex action attained by loco pilots are lost due to un-scientific design of left/right side driving wherein a loco pilots point of sighting a signal from right side to left side in long hood differs. Added with non-standardisation of driving gadgets from loco to loco leading to late reaction by LP: in case of emergenceis. Eventhough there are several DSO/CSO and director of safety at board level, the onus of safe  run is trusted upon crew alone without ensuring visibility and uniformity, while a nano car worth two lakh rupees has standardised driving gadgets, excellent wiper, dust and sound proof driving cab comparing to a 12 crore worth WDP4/WDG4.
     The passenger/mail crew links are drawn by avoiding four 30 hours PR and mostly 22 hours PR taking advantage of the ambiguity in HOER. Even if four 30 hours PR is given all the 365 days crew will be on the loco if he is not on leave as their weekly rest does not cover a calendar day in addition  to their normal rest, similar to other continuously classified staff. Since the vacancies are not filled up for want of economy this 30/22 hours PR is also not been granted and loco pilots are booked for trains evading PR’s. The personal work done by other employees in a calendar day rest are done by loco pilots by seeking one day leave but one day leave also a rare thing. Railway officers ignore the fact that a leave denied loco pilot is a potential hazard, although they are keen to keep their posts 100% full without any vacancies!
     Railway board issued a circular limiting outstation detention to 36 hours as far as possible but many depots goods crew are put at outstations for 72/96 hours causing mental agony which reduces concentration on running duties. It is a rule framed when passenger services were very scarce to move crew for balancing but nowadays with frequent passenger services, this rule can be abandoned.
     Railways have kept the upper limit of duty hours to 13 in its rule book ignoring 8 hours duty limit of the  ILO Convention to which India is a signatory. But under the threat of DAR, goods crew are terrorized to work 13 hours and more in a loco which emits 100 decibel noise and 10 degree more temperature than room temperature causing early fatigue leading to lapses and accidents. The Chennai RLC had recently classified LP(P)/LP(M) as intensive through a job analysis but railways are refusing to implement.
     Under the name of zonal crew link extended crew beat is in force from 2008 and loco pilots have to work in 5 to 6 routes combating numerous signals and station layouts. The crew mostly goes in particular route only once in 30 or 40 days and looses the acquaintance that leads to accidents and it has to be reviewed.
     The crew is utilised for other duties such as GDR check of wagons, Coupling/uncoupling other than driving is causing early fatigue and both unsafe, to train running as well as fitness of wagons, as crew is not competent. Similarly utilisation of non running railway staff to assist loco pilot in sections without road learning under SR 3.78 is also a safety hazard.
     The crew has to ensure the aspect of signals whether the signal posts have power or no signal post itself and the GR 3.78 says do not   trust the signals entirely even though they are in favour and be vigilant and cautious and from these rule one can conclude that in no circumstance railway management will take responsibility to an accident.
     To ensure the safety of railways the loco running staff of SWR SR and SCR decide march to CRS office Bangalore to appraise him the unsafe work culture followed in railways promoting accidents, and AILRSA demands to extent the railway accident enquiries to the reasons of human failure too. We demand as follows, to reduce human failure.

1.  Classify loco running staff as intensive.
2.  Allow 30+16 hours PR
3.  Limit Continuous night duties to two
4.  Redraw crew links for mail trains in divisional jurisdiction          for better acquaintance
5.  Standardise the locomotives to retain reflexes with air conditioned cabs
6.  Run diesel locomotives in short hood only or modify as twin cab like electric locos
7.  Introduce air-conditioning in running rooms to avail proper rest.
8.  Ensure zero vacancy in loco running cadre.

To know the real colour of Federations, kindly go through the views expressed by Mr PUROHIT leader of AIRF with regard to NATIONAL TRIBUNAL
The PNM Meeting
Railway Board
All India Railwaymen’s Federation
on 23rd & 24th February, 2012

Shri Umraomal Purohit

Shri Purohit thanked Member Staff for his appreciation of the Railwaymen. He stated that dis-satisfaction amongst the Railwaymen is growing on account of the large number of vacancies. There is a suspicion or a doubt that the Railways have no intention to fill up the vacancies…..

He mentioned that some case has happened in the case of running staff at National Tribunal. In his long experience on the Railways, he has not come across such a case and this is probably the first instance. The Federations are in negotiations on various issues relating to running staff. The case of National Tribunal has to be seriously taken up by the Board at the appropriate level, as there are implications in that. Number one

implication is that Pay Commission was headed by a Supreme Court Judge and he has given a decision which Government of India has accepted, and implemented. Now we are negotiating is a different question. The Labour Ministry appointing a National Commission and appointing a High Court Judge to inquire into this and say whether this

is right or wrong or say whether it is less or more. Does this look right in the eyes of the law. A High Court Judge has to look into that, is it right. Number two, scales of pay/grade pay which the commission has recommended, the Government of India has accepted and Railway Board has implemented. Does the Labour Ministry not know that it is the Cabinet decision, to which the Labour Ministry is also a party in the Cabinet where
the decision has been taken. And if that decision has to be challenged a higher Court has to be appointed.

He stated that this matter should be discussed seriously with the Labour Ministry and our Minister should discuss, or MS may discuss it at the Secretary level. How this has happened. Has at any time in the history of the Indian Railways this has been done in the past. This should be done by bilateral agreement. Let this issue be first settled where do you stand.

6) Subject: Head on collision in between subarban EMU PASSANGER on last night at PHULIA/ER at 19:51


From: Tanmoy Roy  Sun, 08 Jan 2012 16:29:39 
You and others
The last night train accident at Phulia station reminds us the mishaps
of Gaishal,Uttar banga express at Sainthia and jnaneswary express

   The details of the accident at Ranaghat-Shantipur single line
section in Sealdah DIV/ER Railway at Phulia station are given

  The up Santipur local was receiving at loop line of Phulia station
for crossing with Dn Santipur Sealdah local which was due to enter the main line.

  According to source --- statement   R.S. Yadav the LPP/down train
noticing the put back of home signal and then observing the caution

home signal for main line but the train entered the loop line and

occurred the HEAD ON COLLISION with the up train .As a result on death and about 60 men was injured.Expecting pubic panic the LPP of up train Mr.Manaranjan Ghosh fled.

  According to the statement given by railway authority Mr.R.S.
Yadav passed the home signal in danger condition and the train was


 He noticed that the chips of speedometer was removed without any witness.

 It is not clear that even if the LPP cross the danger signal in and
enter locking panel controlled  by station the down train could enter the same line where the up train was occupied.

 At present EMU passenger likewise trains are servicing under
recommendation of ERMC which was violating the HOER. Each LPP has to perform 15 to 17 over night duties and they have to stay 48 hrs out of home station.There are very short rest break in between 2 to 3 train working in a day in our tremendous busy suburban area.More over it should be noted that one man train operation is undoubtedly dangerous.

 AILRSA has submitted Memorandum against the present link.But no remedial measure has been taken.

 We think that the accident took place only due to the present
unscientific and inhuman link .It  has been noticed in our Sealdah DIV. without any proper infrastructure,huge vacancy  of LP/ALP, lack of proper psychological test, train services beyond traffic capacity are being done by goods driver---- are the cause of day by day mishaps. All this  irregularities are being supported by some other Federation leaders only for giving political popularity.
