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
1. CREW LINKS:-
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.

Above are increases consecutive
6hrs, night duty between 22:00 to 06.00
hrs and longer hours working.
off Tr. No. 57437/57438(GTL-HUP-GTL) atDMM 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
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 atHUP 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
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 hasdirected as Rt. to HQs byTr. 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.-2will 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.
2. GOODS TRAIN WORKING:-
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.
3) PERIODICAL REST:-
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.
4) RUNNING ROOMS:-
“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
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/zonerunning
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.
(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 CLImade 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&SRtraining and competent certificate issued bytheir 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
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
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.
