New Year Message from NFIR
No.IV/NFIR/7 CPC(Imp)/Allowance/2016/Part I
We Will be celebrating New Year Day on January 1, 208 with disappointment and agony as the Government has done grave injustice by reducing the percentage or various Allowances and also by not granting the Allowances from 1st January. 2016. Almost all Railway employees in all corners Of Indian Railways have been deprived Of their legitimate Allowances in terms Of percentages existed prior to acceptance Of 7th CPC report.
The Running Staff, Brothers/Sisters, are aware that NFIR has placed cogent case before the Railway Board for hiking Kilometrage rates on the basis of Running Allowance formula and revision of TA rates. Our presentation was admired by the Running Staff. The Railway Board has discussed with NFIR twice on revision of Running Allowance rates and on both the occasions we conveyed the logic for upward revision or mileage rates and also revision of other related Allowances.
It is sad to mention that the decisions reached negotiated settlement concerning various categories of employees are yet to be implemented while we are walking into New Year on 1st January, 2018. As part of celebrations, everyone of us should convey our deep sense Of disappointment and anguish to the Railway Ministry and the Government and at the same time urge the Government to respond to our issues quickly and positively.
