Dear Sir,

Sub: Advance prospects for Track Maintainers

Pursuant to recommendation of the Railway Safety Review Committee, set up under the Chairmanship of Justice H.R. Khanna, a Retired Supreme Court Judge, in the year 1998, to prove into train accident of Golden Temple Mail, a decision was taken that; Trackman above 45 years of age would be laterally inducted in the category of Pointsman to the extent of 10%. The said age limit was further relaxed from 45 years to 38 years in erstwhile Grade Pay Rs.1800, i.e. Level-1 of the 7th CPC Pay Matrix.

In the wake of implementation of four-grade structure, in the ratio of 10:20:20:50, any Trackman above the age of 38 years would hardly be available in the initial Grade Pay of Rs.1800, i.e. Level-1 of the 7th CPC Pay Matrix, for lateral induction to the tune of 10% in the category of Pointsman.

AIRF, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to look into the matter in the above context, and minimum age bar for lateral induction, as mentioned above, should be removed to facilitate smooth flow from the category of Track Maintainer to Pointsman Category and other categories.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.
