Dear Sir,

Sub: Posting of staff in Ticking Checking Squads

Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.20l6/TG-V/21/53 Policy(P) dated 06.06.2016

Above cited letter of Railway Board, issued in modification of Board’s earlier letter dated 03.05.2016 regarding tenure/posting of Ticking Checking Squad, is “short of our demand” as mentioned in our letter   dated 12.052016, and even extension of three-year period over and above “five-year tenure”, relaxation on “once in life time working” and determination of “cooling-off period” all left to discretion of Sr. DCM/CCM, which ultimately bestowed authority to Sr. DCM/CCM to violate or to circumvent Periodical Transfer orders issued by the Railway Board under RBE No.123/2000 and reiterated vide RBE  No.48/2012, by which, including Ticket Checking Staff, working in squad are liable for transfer once in four- year from one location to another(one squad to another) in order to fulfill requirement of Periodical Transfer.

Hence, we request you to kindly modify revised letter dated 06.06.2016 of the Railway Board as under:-

  • Norms for keeping any person in Zonal/Divisional Ticket Checking Squad shall be five years, which can be further extended for a period of three years; based on their individual performance only. There is no need for any discretion.
  • The condition Ticket Checking Staff shall be allowed to work only once in a life time needs to be relaxed as extant policy on Periodical Transfer allows Ticket Checking Staff to work in Sleeper/Station/Squad. Hence there is no need for any restriction in particular area of working as also there is no need for any discretion.
  • Cooling-off period itself is irrelevant as Ticket Checking Staff working in Ticket Checking Squad is a part of duty of Ticket Checking Cadre and Squad posting is not an ex-cadre posting. There is also no need of “cooling off period” at all, leave alone any discretion on this.

As such, we request the Railway Board to modify their letter dated 06.06.2016 in line with our stand.

The Board are further requested to mention about AIRF’s PNM Item No.22/20I6 in the revised letter.

An early action in the matter is solicited.
