Sub: Grant of Transport Allowance to the employees availing workman Trains – reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM item No.22/2011.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No.I/5(F) dated 22/02/2009, 15/09/2009, 11/12/2009 & 24/03/2014
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No.PC-V/2008/A/TA/2 dated 23/03/2009 and 19/03/2014.
During the course of discussions in the PNM meeting the Official side had expressed the need to constitute the committee to examine the issue duly taking into account the fact that Transport Allowance is being paid to the staff who avail the facility of Residential Card Passes.
The Railway Board has however sent negative reply to the Federation vide letter dated 19/03/2014 to which Federation has since sent its objection to the Railway Board vide BFIR’s letter dated 24/03/2014. Subsequently, NFIR demanded discussions on the issue with the Railway Board (MS&FC) for which no date has been fixed so far.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to fix date for holding meeting with the Board on mutually convenient date.
