The Secretary (E),
Sub: Training period of wards of deceased/medically decategorised Railway employees appointed on compassioate grounds as Technician Gr. III in (erstwhile GP 1900/Pay Level-2 of 7th CP)-reg.
Ref: NFIR’s letter No.II/1-A/Part 20 dated 31/01/2018.
Federation vide its letter dated 31/01/2018 brought to the notice of the Railway Board, the grievance of Apprentice Technicians who happened to be the wards of deceased/medically decategorised Railway employees appointed on compassionate grounds (non-ITI/non-Act Apprenticeship Training) who are being subjected to three years training for appointment to the post of Technician Grade III in erstwhile GP 1900/Pay Leave-2. A period of about three months has passed, unfortunately, there has been no communication to the Federation on action taken on the subject matter.
While enclosing copy of Federation’s letter dated 31/01/2018, NFIR once again requests the Railway Board to consider the justified points raised for reduction of training period of three years in the case of non-ITI/non-Act Apprentice wards/widows of Railway employees appointed on compassionate ground to a reasonable period.
Action taken on Federation’s proposal may please be communicated to the Federation soon.
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
