During NFIR's PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/l4-11-2017, Federation raised the issue of the condition of Railway Quarters outside agenda and stated that the condition of quarters continue to remain deplorable. Federation further said that the deteriorated condition of Railway quarters and the Railway colonies is on account of non-allotment of adequate funds and non-availability of artisan and other support staff under the JEs/SSEs (Works). Federation also stated that the deterioration of conditions has been causing severe hardships to the staff and their families living in the quarters.

Railway Board during NFIR's PNM meeting held on 10/11-5-2018 conveyed following position through Action Taken Statement delivered to the Federation in the meeting:-

B. Other private hospitals which are neither empanelled by CGHS, ECHS & ESI nor are run by Government of India Public Sector Unit. (PSU).

The following guide lines and check list are to be kept in consideration while empanelling hospitals by Railways. The point common to both these types of hospitals are given below:-

1. Justification for the proposal mentioning the present status of Railway Hospital i.e. number of Doctors & Paramedical on roll vis. a vis. sanctioned strength, services provided by it, any future plan for expansion, no. of Honorary Consultants/Visiting Specialists (specialty wise) & CMPs and despite existing facilities why referral services are still required.

2. Justification for empanelment with technical aspect i.e. number of beds/ facilities/specialties/services offered/medical set up etc. at the proposed hospital.

3. Total number of Railway beneficiaries catered by the Railway Hospital.

4. In the Specialties Specialties for which Railway hospital do not have facilities if there are any reputed Government Hospitals rendering services in those specialties.

5. In CGHS covered states/cities, hospitals should be empanelled only at CGHS rates (in case of Government of India, PSU hospital their own rate) or even lower or some discount etc offered by them. Names of the hospital empanelled by CGHS / ECHS /ESI can be obtained from respective website. Even in places not covered by CGHS, all out efforts should be made to empanel hospital on CGHS (city-specific) rates only. In case of any deviation from CGHS rates, justification to be given by MD / CMS / CMO in charge, duly concurred by Associate Finance before being approved by Competent Authority.

6. Comparative statement of package rates as well as diagnostic charges of the proposed hospital with (i) other empanelled hospitals in the city and (ii) the CGHS rates of that city or the nearest city in tabulated form.

7. Two copies of rate list of hospital duly verified by competent authority. After approval, one copy along with sanction letter to be sent to HQ for uploading on Zonal website.

8. Concurrence of the Associate Finance as applicable along with their verbatim comments

9. Proposal to be sent for approval of GM /DG (RDSO) /DRM /CAO /CWM as the case may be (both for the first time and as well as further renewals).

10. Validity of empanelment will be two years or till it is empanelled or revoked by CGHS / ECHS /.ESI whichever is earlier and for Government of India PSU hospitals too it will be for two years, Same for non CGHS / ECHS / ESI hospitals too. Overall performance of the hospital, patient’s feedback etc. to be kept in mind while extension

11. Further extension may be done with mutual consent of both parties, arid will be sanctioned by GM /DG (RDSO) /DRM /CAO /CWM as the case may be (also see para
A((a) & B(d)).

A. CGHS / ESI/ ECHS empanelled hospitals and Government of India / Public Sector Undertaking hospitals like of SAIL’ 3HEL, Coal India, etc. -

(a) In case of CGHS / ECHS / ESI empanelled & Government of India/PSU run hospitals, a letter of willingness from the hospital be obtained and can be empanelled any time Rates as and when revised by CGHS can be agreed to.

B. Other private hospitals which are neither empanelled by CGHS, ECHS & ESI
a) An open advertisement should be floated once a year or as per requirement for empanelment of private hospitals.

b) Empanelment of such hospitals should be considered only if there is no other CGHS/ ECHS / ESI nor any hospital run by Government of India - Public Sector Undertaking like SAIL, BHEL, Coal India etc. empanelled hospital, preferably within a vicinity of 5kms from the hospital already empanelled.
c) Search committee should be constituted by MD / CMS / CMO, consisting of 3 doctors of at least JAG level and they may co-opt another doctor of particular speciality when required. They will visit the hospitals and give clear justification for approving this hospital.

d) For any increase in rates, at the time of extension same should be justified by MD/CMS/CMO and concurred by Associated Finance and accepted by the concerned competent authority. If such increase in rates is more than 5%, the proposal duly justified by medical in charge and vetted by associate finance and approval of DRM /CWM in case of Division and workshops to be sent to Headquarters for sanction of General Manger. In case of headquarter controlled Central hospitals and Pus, General Manager / DG*(RDSO) will approve such proposals.

Restructuring of certain Group 'C' cadres - promotion benefit to the staff vacancies exited as on 01/11/2013

NFIR

No. 1/8/CRC/09/Vol.11
Dated: 08/05/2018
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Restructuring of certain Group 'C' cadres - promotion benefit to the staff vacancies exited as on 01/11/2013-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR's PNM Item No. 4/2014.
(ii) NFIR's letter No. 1/8/CRC/09/Vol. 10 dated 03/06/20t6.
(iii) NFIR's letter No. 1/8/CRC/09Vol. 11dated 04/09/2017.
(iv) Railway Board's lette rNo.PC-lII/2014/FE-II/2 dated 11/09/2017.

In the NFIR's PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14-11/2017, the Official Side gave position relating to the number of vacancies which existed as on 01/11/2013 and claimed that more than 95% normal vacancies which existed as on 01/11/2013 pertain to the same year i.e. 2013. In response Federation agreed to make back reference based on the facts and position provided by the Official Side.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that on many Zonal Railways vacancies pertaining to the year 2012 continued unfilled. Similarly, Federation takes note that in the year 2011 also, a total of 258 posts which is around 0.46% have also been lying unfilled. This position is sufficient to strengthen Federation's demand to consider for granting proforma benefit to the staff w.e.f. 01/11/2013 who got promoted against these vacancies subsequently.

NFIR, therefore, once again urges upon the Railway Board to consider Federation's demand and issue instructions to the Zones etc., to grant proforma benefit to the staff who have been promoted against vacancies existed prior to 01/11/2013. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.
Yours faithfully,
(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)
