No.AIRF/82 Dated: November 18, 2010
The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,
Sub: Entitlement of Privilege Pass
I know that all of you are very much anxious about the issue of entitlement of Privilege Pass to the Railway employees and there is much anxiety amongst the Railwaymen on the same.
As all of you know that we are persistently pursuing this issue with the Railway Board.
You also know that our stand always had been that all the staff working in GP Rs.4200 should be provided with 2AC Pass and those in in GP Rs.2800 with 3AC Pass.
On our demand, there had always been persistent opposition from one quarter in the Railway Board.
Now you should be happy to know that the Railway Board have started thinking on the lines of AIRF and we hope that the issue will be resolved very soon and that too according to our demand.
Let’s wait for a few days more – The fruit of patience is sweet.
