National Federation  Indian Railwaymen
Affiliated to: 
international Transport Workers' Federation (lTF) 

No. I/5(g)/Part, V
Dated: 03/07/2015
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: National Holiday Allowance - Upward revision of rates -reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR's PNM Item No. S/2013.
(ii) Railway Board's letter No. E(P&A)l-2013/FE-4/3 dated 02/05/2014.
(iii) NFIR's Letter No. I/5(g)/Pait. V dated 12/12/2014.
While discussing NFIR's PNM item No. 5/2013 in the PNM meeting, the Official Side stated that the Federation's reply dated 12/12/2014 has been examined by the Board, but 
however, it has been found that the demand of the Federation to compute NHA by taking into account DA in addition to Basic Pay and Grade Pay and at one and half time the normal rate prevalent till 1968 is not feasible of acceptance.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that the view taken by the Railway Board is not acceptable to NFIR as it does not contain justified and valid reasons. The Federation places below following facts which are required to be taken into consideration for giving justified decision.

(a) I he decision of the Railway Board is a clear departure from its original decision which was based on the concept that the Railway employees who are not permitted to avail National Holiday in the exigencies of services have to be compensated by payment of additional amount equal to I /~ times of pay (pay in pay band + grade pay) and dearness allowance thereon. The quantum of compensation was clearly laid down which cannot be changed unilaterally by the Railway Board.

(b) The Vth Central Pay Commission though did not favour the continued payment of National Holiday Allowance, had recommended that the staff who are required to be booked on holidays to perform duties, may be paid Over Time Allowance at the prescribed rates.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to review and accept one of the two options mentioned at (a) or (b) above and grant revision of rates. In case there is still reservation on the part of Railway Board. a meeting may be convened for separate discussion.

Yours faithfully

(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

DMK’s MoU Denied Metro Rail Revenue to TN: CM

Chennai (MAS): Responding to the charge of DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi and party treasurer MK Stalin that the fares of the Chennai Metro should be lower, Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa said Karunanidhi had no locus standi to speak on this.

The MoU states that if the project cannot be completed within the stipulated period, the State government had to bear all the additional costs and if the project cost goes up due to factors like rise in the prices materials, variation in foreign exchange, taxation changes etc., the Centre and State governments should equally share it. Revenue loss and capital expenditure incurred during the period of execution of the project, should be borne by the State government, according to the clauses of the MoU. If the CMRL fails to repay the loan availed from JICA, the State government should repay it, according to the clauses of the MoU signed by Karunanidhi which went against Tamil Nadu, Jayalalithaa added.

DMRC starts Trial Run on Jahangirpuri-Samaypur Badli Metro Rail corridor

DMRC chief Mangu Singh during the inauguration of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) Phase 3 corridor trial runs between Jahangirpuri-Samaypur Badli Metro Rail Corridor

New Delhi: Literally hopping over the busy Northern Railway tracks and a PWD flyover along the Outer Ring Road, a first Metro train ran across the new extension of Yellow Line from Jahangirpuri till Samaypur Badli which held its first safety trials on Friday.

JMRC eyes Chinese, American firms’ help in Phase-II

Jaipur (JP): The Jaipur Metro Rail Corporation (JMRC) is now looking at Chinese and American companies to construct Metro phase II (Sitapura to Ambabari) under the public private partnership (PPP) model after failing to elicit a positive response from Industrial Enterprise, Singapore.

A senior JMRC official informed, “We are expecting a visit from a Chinese delegation on July 8th and an American delegation on July 20th. The JMRC will give a presentation to these firms and explain every aspect for investing in this project.”

A senior official said that despite offering a lucrative deal to the Singapore agency, JMRC is yet to get any response. “The estimated cost of Metro phase-II is Rs 10,000 crore. It has been proposed that the state government would provide 40% amount (as viability gap fund) to the company. The remaining 60% amount would be borne by the state government and the company.”

Nagpur Metro Rail cost to be cut by a fifth to keep project on track

Nagpur (NGP): In order to increase the viability of the metro rail Nagpur Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (NMRCL) has set a target of reducing the project cost by 20%. The cost of the project as per 2012 estimates of Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) was Rs.8,421 crore. The union cabinet sanctioned the project at this cost. However, the cost as per 2014 estimates had gone up to Rs 10,360 crore.
Aware of the fact that cost escalation can derail the project, NMRCL officials are trying to find out all ways and means to reduce the cost. These include rationalization of the construction and outsourcing.
Brijesh Dixit, Managing Director of NMRCL, told DMRC had planned the project for 100 years, which had been reduced to 50 years by the metro company. “One hundred years is too long a time. It unnecessarily increases the project cost and leads to dead investment. Infrastructure can be expanded when required. We will leave space for it,” he said.
Explaining rationalization, he said, “The length of the metro stations, size of the depots and the size of the viaduct (elevated track structure) is being reduced. The viaduct size is being reduced by 15% which alone will lead to cost saving of 10%.”
Outsourcing of fare collection will lead to saving of over Rs 200 crore. “We will have to install automatic fare collection (AFC) machines at all the metro stations. We will integrate a bank’s ATM card with the metro fare coupon. The bank will install the machines for us as it will get a large number of customers, who will open an account in order to get the ATM card,” Dixit said.
NMRCL is also planning to reduce operation cost by using solar energy. A private operator will install solar panels atop stations and depot and along the alignment of the metro corridor. It will sell power to NMRCL at a profit and recover its investment. The agency also plans to provide WiFi service at metro stations with the help of a private operator. “The operator will be given rights to advertise on digital display boards at stations and inside the trains. He will share revenue with us,” Dixit said.
In addition to Sitabuldi and Ambazari stations, NMRCL plans to commercially develop metro stations at Zero Mile, Railway Station and six locations on Central Avenue.
Nine bids for Sitabuldi station
Nine international consultants have bid for designing the Sitabuldi metro station atop which NMRCL plans to construct a 20 storey building. The last date for submitting bids is July 6. Some more bids are expected by then.
Ways to reduce capital cost of metro rail
  • Cutting down length of metro stations
  • Reducing width of the viaduct by 15%
  • Reducing size of the two metro rail depots
  • Outsourcing fare collection system
Ways to reduce operating cost of metro rail
  • Using solar energy
  • Commercial use of some stations
  • WiFi at stations through private operator

EMU purchase move irks railway staff

Kochi: The Indian Railways’ move to buy modern electric multiple unit (EMU) train sets with a provision to sign a seven-year maintenance contract with the manufacturer has irked the employees’ unions. Though the mechanical section is in charge of maintenance of trains, it does not yet have the know-how to maintain the modern trains.

Hyundai Rotem, Talgo and Bomardier are bidding for the contract, which is expected to be signed in August. The railway budget has earmarked Rs 2,500 crore for the import of EMU train sets as a first step of the modernisation of the railways.

The contract would require the manufacturer to maintain the carriages for the initial seven years and then transfer the responsibilities to the railways. The contract includes the transfer of technology, which would allow the railways to build 275 carriages in the second stage as part of the ‘Make in India’ scheme.

Unions to make it tough for Bibek Debroy Committee’s Railway Reforms

The onus of the committee was “reorganising and restructuring the railway board and subsequently the department so that policy making and operations are separated, the department does not work in silos, policy making focusses on long-term and medium-term planning issues and operations focusses on day-to-day functioning of the organisation”.

The railway ministry’s plans to implement the Bibek Debroy committee report on railway reforms is expected to face the full might of the well-entrenched unions in the railways even before a small part of the committee’s recommendations can be implemented.

The onus of the committee was “reorganising and restructuring the railway board and subsequently the department so that policymaking and operations are separated, the department does not work in silos, policy making focusses on long-term and medium-term planning issues and operations focusses on day-to-day functioning of the organisation”.

Railway Minister to launch ICF/Perambur’s 50,000th Coach on Monday
