The Chairman,                                                                        Dated: January 14, 2019
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: “Work To Rule”.
Ref.: AIRF’s letter of even number dated 05.11.2018 and 03.12.2018.

The letter written to Chairman/RB on 03.12.2018 referred to above, is enclosed herewith, is a self-explanatory and a meeting held on the subject with the Board (MS), had given us assurance that these issues will be finalised shortly and many of the issues are under process.








Unfortunately, the three issues particularly – (i) Running Allowance to Running Staff; (ii) Revision of ratio of Trackmen making it 10:20:20:50; and (iii) Implementation of Cadre Restructuring of IT Cadre based on sanctioned strength and not on roll, which were discussed with the Board, are still lying with the Hon’ble MR since last more than three months.

Many more items raised by the Federation are also not resolved which is creating lot of frustration amongst the Railwaymen and there is likelihood of breaching of industrial peace because of non-resolving of problems raised by AIRF.







The date fixed for the Work to Rule, in our General Council held at Kota on 02.11.2018, was 11th December 2018, but the same was deferred on the assurance of the Board (MS). However, till now nothing fruitful has come out. Under these circumstances, if these issues attached as Annexure, could not be be resolved within a short time frame, we will be forced to review our decision of deferring the Work to Rule decision.

We hope you will kindly sort out the issues at an earliest to avoid industrial unrest on Indian Railways.
