Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to Federation's demand contained in Agenda Item No. 06/2016, wherein it was requested to restore previous instructions issued under Railway Board's letter dated 18/04/2007 facilitating the benefit of Post Retirement Complimentary Passes to ex-servicemen working in the Railways duly respecting the announcement of Hon'ble MR on the floor of the House during the course of presentation of Rail Budget 2007-2008. Though the Railway Board have issued instructions vide letter dated 19/04/2018, unfortunately these are not being implemented on Zonal Railways etc., on the pretext that such staff have not completed 20 years service or more in the Railways. In this connection, Federation vide its letter dated 17/08/2018, cited the specific case of North Western Railway, unfortunately no instructions have been issued though discussions were held by General Secretary, NFIR with ED(IR) on 3rd July, 2018. Thereafter a period of over two months has passed, unfortunately instructions duly modifying Board’s letter dated 19/04/2018 are yet to be issued.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarification duly amplifying the instructions issued vide letter dated 19/04/2018 to facilitate the ex-servicemen or Central Government employees joined Railways, to avail the benefit of Post Retirement Complimentary Passes on the basis of length of service in Railways and in the previous Central Government Organization. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.
Yours faithfully

TWO DAYS STRIKE JOINTLY WITH CENTRAL TRADE UNIONS AND ALL INDIA STATE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES FEDERATION (AISGEF).
NO CHANGE IN THE CHARTER OF DEMANDS
SCRAP NPS WILL BE THE NUMBER ONE DEMAND.
Dear Comrades,
As you are aware, in the National Convention of Workers held at Mavlankar Hall, New Delhi on 28th September 2018, all the Central Trade Unions (except BMS) and all other independent Federations have declared two days nationwide strike on 8th & 9th January 2019 against the anti-people and anti-labour policies of the NDA Government.

In the resolution adopted in the June 10th Hyderabad National Convention of Confederation and also in the National Secretariat meeting held thereafter, we have decided that the 2018 November 15th strike of Confederation will be changed, if the Central Trade Unions declare nationwide strike, so that the dates of both strikes will be synchronized to make it a joint strike.

Accordingly, the National Secretariat of Confederation has decided to postpone the 15th November 2018 strike to 2019 JANUARY 8th & 9th. The strike will be for two days. There is no change in the Confederation charter of demands.

SCRAP NPS AND RESTORE OPS FOR ALL

will be the number one demand. All India State Government Employees Federation has also decided to postpone the strike to 2019 JANUARY 8th & 9th.
