Sub: Privilege Passes to Railway Staff and their families – crediting of un-utilized passes to the Pass account of employees-reg.
Ref: NFIR’s letter No. I/15/Part III dated 19/03/2018.
Federation vide its letter dated 19/03/2018 requested the Railway Board to issue instructions to the Zonal Railways etc., to credit un-availed privilege passes to the pass account of Railway employees to facilitate them to avail such passes later on when need arises. The modification in the existing rules was sought by the Federation in view of genuine grievances received from Railway employees who though entitled to draw the privilege passes but are unable to avail the same due to unavoidable reasons such as non-grant of leave by the Administration, family problems etc. Federation reiterates that these situations cause the privilege passes getting lapsed as they cannot be continued in the pass account of the employee in the subsequent year/years.
While enclosing copy of Federation’s letter dated 19/03/2018, NFIR once again urges upon the Railway Board to consider the merits involved in the case and allow accumulation of privilege passes in the respective pass accounts of staff instead lapsing them when the staff are unable to avail within the year of eligibility.
