Dear Sir.
Sub: Restructuring of certain Group ‘C’ cadres – promotion benefit to the staff vacancies
exited as on 01/11/2013-reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 4/2014.
(ii) NFIR’s letterNo. V8lCRC/09/Vol. 10 dated 03i06t20t6.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. V8lCRC/09A/ol. I 1 dated 0410912017.
(iv) Railway Board’s letterNo.?C-lIV*2014lFE-IIl2 dated 1110912017.

In the NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13-14/-11/2017, the Official Side gave position relating to the number of vacancies which existed as on 01/112013 and claimed that more than95o/o normal vacancies which existed as on 0l/1112013 pertain to the same year i.e. 2013. In response Federation agreed to make back reference based on the facts and position provided by the Official Side.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that on many Zonal Railways vacancies pertaining to the year 2012 continued unfilled. Similarly, Federation takes note that in the year 2011 also, a total of 258 posts which is around 0.46% have also been lying unfilled. This position is sufficient to strengthen Federation’s demand to consider for granting proforma benefit to the staff w.e.f. 01/11/2013 who got promoted against these vacancies subsequently.

NFIR, therefore, once again urges upon the Railway Board to consider Federation’s demand and issue instructions to the Zones etc., to grant proforma benefit to the staff who have been promoted against vacancies existed prior to 01/11/2013 . A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.
