Cadre Restructuring on Indian Railways


No.AIRF/364(VI CPC)(61) Dated: March 21, 2011

The Secretary(E).
Railway Board,
New Delhi Dear


Attn: Shri P.K. Sharma, Addl. Member Staff, Railway Board

Sub: Cadre restructuring on Indian Railways
Since long AIRF is demanding cadre restructuring of various categories of staff on the Indian Railways.
I also raised this issue in the last conference of the General Managers held on 21-22 January, 2011 as also in the meeting held with the Member Staff and Adviser(IR), Railway Board on 131" January, 2011.

Since the matter is delayed badly, we hope, the Railway Board will take prompt action in the matter to avoid any agitation and to keep industrial peace.

In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that the DoP&T (Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions) vide their O.M. No.35034/9/2010-Estt.(D) dated 10"1 February. 2011 (photocopy enclosed) has already advised the Ministry of Railways to start the exercise of cadre restructuring in the Railways.

In this connection, it may also be pointed out that the Hon'ble Minister for Railways in her Rail Budget 2011-12 has also stressed for Cadre Restructuring exercise in the Railways.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

Yours faithfully,
(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
General Secretary

DA/As above

Copy to:
Shri A.K Nigam, Adviser(IR), Railway Board, New Delhi. He is also requested to do the needful.

Subject: Review of Cadre structuring - Regarding

In pursuance of the decision taken in the 2nd meeting of the National Anomaly Committee held on 27.03.2010, a Joint Committee to examine the anomalies pertaining to the Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) was constituted vide Department of Personnel & Training (DOPT)'s O.M. No.11/1/201.0-JCA dated 03.05.2010.

2 The issue of providing an option to organisations/cadres to have a choice for the benefits under the earlier ACPS or the MACPS was also discussed in the meeting of the joint Committee. While the issue would require further deliberations, it is reiterated that MACPS (as was the case with the ACPS) is a fall back option in the event of promotions not taking place. Cadre structure needs to be reviewed periodically to harmonise the functional needs of the organisation and career progression of employees. Accordingly, all concerned are advised to review the cadre structure in a time bound manner with a view to mitigate problem of stagnation.

3 All Ministries/Departments may give wide circulation to the contents of this O.M. for guidance and appropriate action in the matter.

4 Hindi version will follow
