NFIR refers Denial of regular promotion to Loco Pilots and other categories to Railway Board

The Member Staff,

Railway Board,

New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Denial of regular promotion to staff working against clear vacancies – Loco Pilots and other Categories-reg.


The undersigned met you on two occasions in the recent past and explained the need for granting regular promotion to those staff (Loco Pilots etc.,) who were empanelled and promoted instead treating them as ad-hoc promotees.

While the issue is under correspondence between the Railway Board and DoP&T in the context of Reservation in promotions to SC/ST’s (Supreme Court Judgment dated 09/10/2006 in M. Nagaraj V/s Union of India), the empanelled staff who have been granted promotion on ad- hoc basis (particularly Loco Pilots) are extremely disappointed as their career would suffer when their substantive pay is taken into consideration for pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix.

In a separate meeting held in ED/IR’s chamber on NFIR’s PNM Item No. 33/2015, the Federation has insisted the ad-hoc promotion should be converted as regular promotion with retrospective effect.

It may kindly be appreciated that there is staff unrest and atmosphere of agitation on many Zonal Railways against treating them as ad-hoc promotees when they were empanelled and posted against higher grade vacancies.

It is therefore requested to kindly intervene and see that those ad-hoc promotions are converted as regular promotions with retrospective effect.

Yours faithfully,

General Secretary
