Draft Modalities for Holding Secret Ballot Elections

NORMS OF RECOGNITION OF TRADE UNION/(S) AND TENURE:-

(a) TUs securing 30% or more of the number of ‘Total Electorate’ of Zonal Railway shall be considered for recognition.
Note: ‘Total Electorate’ means total number of Railway Servants eligible to vote in a Zonal Railway, as published in Final Voters’ list.









(b) In case only one TU secures 30% or more of ‘Total Electorate’ and some other TU [securing next maximum number of votes (i.e. runner-up) of the ‘Total Electorate’] secures 35% or more of the “Total Valid Votes Polled” (i.e. TVVP), both TUs shall be considered for recognition.
Note: In case there are two runners-up securing equal number of TVVP (while also securing 35% or more of TVVP), only one of the two runners-up TUs shall be considered for recognition (apart from the winner securing 30% or more of the Total Electorate) on the basis of draw of lots.
