Kind attention is invited to NFIR's PNM Agenda Item 32/2012 and the Railway Board's final proposal sent to the Federations vide letter dated 15/07/2015. Though the Federation had conveyed its consent with minor modifications for issuing formal instructions to GMs, over more than two years back, unfortunately no orders have been issued by the Railway Board, consequently staff are put to disadvantage. 

In this connection, Federation reminds the Board that vide item 3, sub item (iii) of Board's final proposal dated 15/07/2015, following provision has been made for promotion to the post of Commercial Clerk (GP 2000) in terms of Para 128 of IREM. Vol. I:-

"16 2/30% by promotion entirely on merit of regular employees with 10+2 qualification of all Departments in GP 1800 and GP 1900/- with a minimum of 3 years aggregate regular service on the basis of a competitive examination consisting of Written Test and Record of Service of 85 and 15 marks respectively. Those with matriculate qualification on the date of the issue of these order will also be eligible."

The issue has also been discussed more than once with the Railway Board and Federation stated both commercial categories i.e. Commercial Clerks and Ticket Examiners (GP 2000/Pay Level 3) be thrown open filling 16 2/3 vacancies by the employees of all departments through competitive examination.

NFIR, therefore, once again urges upon the Railway Board to kindly see that revised orders are issued soon.
A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
