Modification in the Travelling Allowance

New order dated 22.01.09

At last CG Officers working in field formations could breath easy after this new stand taken by the department on TA Rules.

As you are all aware of the modified Travelling Allowance Rules as per Office Memorandum dated 23.09.08 consequent on Sixth pay commission recommendations, which was based on reimbursement principle (i.e.) Officers have to produce receipts for the amount spent on accommodation, food, transportation etc.

This principle may be fine for the officers who travel to a cities, as the charges for lodging, transportation etc could be claimed at actual subject to a maximum ceiling.

However, Officers who had to travel on duty to remote places like villages sea shores were really put to hardship because they could not get the receipts for the amount spent by them for food as it would be meaningless to ask for serially numbered bill from a small Hotelier or “Dhabawala” in those places.  Even for those who travel long distances in trains in which fare is not inclusive of food, it would be very difficult to get receipts for food from pantry car or railway platform salesmen.

Now, this hardship has been done away with by the issue of new Office Memorandum dated 22.01.2009, as the Govt has decided to sanction daily allowance on tour, based on earlier office memorandum dated 17.04.1998 in case the officers  opted to claim slab rate based daily allowance instead of reimbursement based travelling allowance prescribed vide office memorandum dated 23.09.08.

In a nutshell, this new order provides the choice to the Officers for claiming the Travelling allowance either based on old TA rates as per the office memo dated 17.04.98 or at actual using the bills for food etc as per the office memorandum dated 23.09.08.  However, Officers can not mix up these two orders for a single tour.

Mass Casual Leave 12-02-2009

NATIONAL RAILWAY MAZDOOR UNION

Resolution

This meeting of the Loco Running Staff being held under the auspices of the National Railway Mazdoor Union in CST auditorium on 11-01-2009 views with serious concern the apathetic attitude of the Govt. of India and the Ministry of Railways towards the pressing demands of Running Staff such as

1) Anomalies relating to pay scales of ALPs,

2) Poor rate of mileage,

3) Working hours,

4) Filling up all the vacancies in the Running Staff categories and

5) Atrocious conditions of Running Rooms.

These issues are of vital importance and have to be settled promptly. Anomaly Committees or such time consuming Committees are not acceptable. There has to be direct discussions between the Government and the AIRF and the Issues have to be settled across the table. This Conference is fully aware of the fact that the Government will not agree to sit across the table and discuss the issues unless it is forced to do so.

Therefore it is imperative that these issues are taken up by the AIRF on top priority and an action programme decided upon. This Conference appeals to the AIRF to give a call to all its affiliates to mobilize the Loco and Traffic Running Staff and launch effective agitations, starting with a days mass casual Leave, on an early date, to be decided by the Federation.

In the meantime, this Conference decides that a mass casual leave programme of Loco Running Staff of Central Railway be launched on 12 Feb. 09 in order to impress upon the authorities the seriousness of the demands.

The Conference appeals to the Union’s Head Office to direct the traffic running staff to join the programme as the issues are common to them also and make the programme effective and strong.

       Resolution Passed unanimously in very agitated mood by Running staff. Grandiloquent speech of Com. Shiv Gopal Mishra inspired running staff to unite under the NRMU/AIRF leadership.

      Its a historical decision taken at historical Place CSTM to repeat the history of historical strike of May-1974 if government deny justified demands of Running staff.
