AIRF PNM Item No. 20/2009 :
Rest Rules for Running Staff
It was pointed out by the administration side that data obtained from five Zonal Railways shows that the absence from headquarters ranges from 10 hours to 60 hours. Utmost efforts will be made to reduce the duration of absence of the running staff from their headquarters to the extent possible. However, it will not be operationally prudent to restrict this duration to 24 hours as demanded by the Staff Side.
It was decided that the Zonal Railways will monitor all cases of absence of more than 36 hours with a view to restrict such absence within reasonable limits.
