Demonstration at Hubli on 16.06.09

Sub: - unjust penal action against loco running staff of Hubli division- reg.
The Railway Board instruction regarding handling of mobile phone on duty is to be kept in switched off or in silent mode.
The call register of mobile phones gives the details of missed calls, when the hand set is not attended. This will help to make a call to those numbers later. Now a days people are connecting voice recorders and caller ID’s to all land phones even.
When the hand set is switched off, many models do not record the missed calls, but do so when kept in silent mode. That is why Railway Board has given the option for either making dead or kept in silent mode.
We wish to further point out that, the standing order in SBC and MYS divisions permits keeping mobile phones in silent mode. In Southern Railway, COM has given instruction to give SMS to inform running staff about the changes of traffic programs during on duty as decision of PNM.
While foot plating with Sri.M.Belu Naik, LP/Mail/UBL, Sr DME asked his mobile phone which was inside his bag. By seeing the mobile phone in ON condition ,Sr DME ordered to suspend the employee on arrival. In fact a mobile phone kept inside luggage box in silent mode will not cause any disturbance to crew or cause any accident. When that be the position, the over enthusiastic action of Sr.DME/P/UBL, in ordering suspension of Sri.M.Belu Naik, was really provoking .By hearing this injustice around 50 LP and ALP of Hubli division sent SMS to Sr DME that their mobile also in ON and he can suspend them also. After getting the SMS Sr DME withdraw the suspension, but initiated Show cause notice to selected 17 running staff. AILRSA All India Vice President Com. KAS Mani, General Secretary Com. Sunish intervened. In the reply to the Show cause notice all were expressed this and regretted for the incidence. But unfortunately Sr DME/P without considering the reply to show cause notice issued minor penalty charge memorandum to all the 17 running staff, stating threatening the officer.
Demanding to withdraw the fabricated charge sheets against 17 loco running staff of Hubli division and to highlight the following demands, AILRSA Hubli Division conducted a mass demonstration from crew booking lobby Hubli to Divisional Railway Manager’s Office Hubli on 16.06.09. The program was addressed by Sri C. Sunish, General Secretary, Sri SD Arnold, Zonal President, Sri Donal Raj, Zonal Vice President, Sri PK Sahoo,Divisional Organising Secretary.Later a Delegation met Divisional Railway Manager Sri Adesh Sharma and submitted a memorandum. He assured to consider our demands sympathetically.
