Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to its PNM Agenda Item No.13/2018 relating to “need for restoration of discontinued Allowances — Daily Officiating Allowance to staff in Railways” upon which it was conveyed to NFIR that O.M. dated 07/02/2019 has been sent to the Ministry of Finance (Deptt., of Exp), seeking concurrence. A period of nearly seven months has passed thereafter, unfortunately further progress in the matter is yet to be communicated to the Federation.
NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to pursue the matter vigorously with the Ministry of Finance and also apprise the progress on the issue.
