The Member Staff,
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 prmotees.
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. Naggraj V/s Union of India), the empanelled staff who have been granted promotion on adhoc basis (particularly Loco Pilots) are extremely disappointed as their career would suffer when their substantivep ay is taken into consideration for pay fixation in 7ft CPC Pay Matrix. In a separate meeting held in ED/IR’s chamber on NFIR’s PNM Item No. 3312015, the Federation has insisted the ad-hoc promotion should be converted as regular promotion with
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.
