June 16, 2015

Designation Officers of Banks which are parties to the 10th Bipartite Settlement/Workmen Union dated 25.5.2016

Dear Sir,

Stagnation Increment


Under the recently signed 10th Bipartite Settlement, it has been agreed that employees shall be eligible for 8th stagnation increment on 1st May, 2015 or two years after receiving stagnation increment, whichever is later.

It has been further agreed that the period of 3 years shall be reduced to 2 years for sanction of 6th stagnation increment.  Accordingly it has bee provided in the Settlement that an employee who has completed two years or more after receiving the fifth stagnation increment as on 1st November, 2012 shall receive the sixth stagnation increment as on 1st November, 2012.

In this connection, we advise that the financial benefit on account of this reduction of eligibility from 3 to 2 years for sanction of the 6th stagnation increment shall accrue on or after 1.5.2015 since the additional cost of such reduction in periodicity from 3 to 2 years has been adjusted at 50% of the actual cost and hence to be effective from 1.5.2015 (30 months out of 60 months of the period of the Settlement).

However under clause 40 of the settlement dated 25.5.2015 in ‘Implementation’ it has inadvertently mentioned as under:-

Stagnation Increment – 8th     1st May, 2015


In view of the adjustment of cost as 50% of the total cost towards improvements in stagnation increment/s this needs to be corrected and read as under:
3     Stagnation Increment improvements (5th to 6th & 7th to 8th Stagnation increment)     1st May, 2015

Member banks may kindly take a note of the above.

 
Yours faithfully,
K. Unnikrishnan
 Dy. Chief Executive

No. IV/NFIR/S.R/2014/Part.III(HLRRC)
Dated: 23/06/2015
Shri Suresh Prabhu,
Hon'ble Minister for Railways,
Rail Bhavan,
New Delhi
Dear Sir,
Sub: Protest against decision for private maintenance of Loco Free Train Sets-reg.


The disturbing reports received by NFIR from different quarters reveal that the Railways is floating global tenders worth Rs. 2500 crore for procurement-cum-maintenance of l5 sets of Electrical Multiple Unit (EMU) Train Sets i.e. 315 coaches from private player in a period of 4-5 years.

While expressing disappointment over the decision, the Federation contends that the existing Running and Technical Staff of Railways are fully capable to acquire new technological skills for running and maintaining the new trains proposed to be procured.

Allowing private players for maintenance of Loco Free Train Sets is amounting to privatisation of activities in contravention to the assurance given by the Hon'ble Prime Minister that Railways shall not be privatised.


The Federation opposes this move of the Railway Ministry as the maintenance of all types of EMU/DMU/MEMU are presently being done by the existing Railway employees efficiently. NFIR further proposes that the new Loco Free Train Sets should be allowed to be maintained by the Supervisors and other technical staff of Indian Railways who may be got trained in the new technology being procured by the IR.

NFIR therefore, solicits intervention of the Hon'ble MR to kindly see that the safe guards as suggested above by the Federation are incorporated in the tender document proceeding for procurement of Loco Free Train Sets. Federation will be happy to have discussions on the issue.

Yours sincerely,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
