It is very pathetic to learn that TN Govt. Engineers get better pay than the Central Govt. Engineers particularly Railway Engineers. The pay-comparisons need to be brought to the notice of concerned Authorities at Railway & Finance Ministries with a view to resolve the SCPC Anomalies at the earliest.

Sir,
As long as there is no unity among railway staff, authorities will continue to neglect us. As we are aware of, the problems of each category is indeed different from that of other category and is different from person to person.
The designation SSE is misleading. Junior Engineer shall be promoted as Senior Engineer, not as Senior Section Engineer.
The most suitable designation was Assistant Engineer in place of SSE. If so we can be demanded for parity with any other Asst.Engineers..
