Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in 
Railways w.e.f. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board's letter No. F(X)I-2002/11/2 dated 26/2/2017.
(ii) NFIR's letter No. II/23/Part III dated 12/03/2018.
(iii) Railway Board's reply vide No. F(X)I-2002/11/2 dated 09/05/2018 addressed to GS/NFIR.
(iv) NFIR's PNM Agenda Item No.18 sent to Railway Board on 26/06/2018.

Federation desires to invite kind attention of Railway Board to the letter dated 26/12/2017 wherein instructions have been issued for revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways with retrospective effect i.e. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016. Federation expresses its anguish over non-appreciation of ground reality highlighted by the Federation vide its letter dated 12/03/2018 for taking remedial action and instead, sent reply vide letter dated 09/05/2018 that the revision in the flat rate of license fee is based on the pattern of Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. Due to this negative approach, the Federation was compelled to raise the issue vide PNM Agenda Item No. 18 (sent to Railway Board on 26/06/2018), but unfortunately, instructions have not been modified yet.

Besides above, the Federation desires to convey to the Railway Board that the reports are received from the NFIR affiliated Unions that though outstanding dues towards office rent, electricity, telephone and water charges have already been cleared by the affiliates, the Divisional Administrations have raised bills for payment arrears towards rentals of office accommodation from 01/07/2010 to 30/06/2013, 01/07/2013 to 30/06/2016 and 01/07/2016 to 31/03/2018. While the Board's instructions dated 26/12/2017 are unjustified, the action of Railway Administration, demanding payment of arrears on account of Office rent of the accommodations in possession of the affiliated Unions is totally wrong.

As the subject has already been taken up by the Federation in the PNM fora at Board's level, it is urged that the instructions dated26/12/2017 be kept in abeyance or withdrawn.
Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
