New Pass Rules

New Pass Rules

In the meeting held between AIRF and Railway Board(Advisor,IR) on 15-09-09, it was agreed that those who were getting privilege of 1st Class Pass will continue to avail the same. All the staff working in Grade Pay Rs.4200 will be entitled for 1st Class Pass. Those who are travelling on duty will be treated at par with other Central Government employees in case of entitlement of class of journey and they will be issued Duty Pass accordingly.

Latest on Pass Issue:-

Com. S.G. Mishra/GS/AIRF/NRMU has discussed the issue of the Pass with Member Staff and advisor(IR) on12.02.10 & has requested them to put some target date & also mentioned them that people are agitating on this issue & AIRF will not leave this issue for long time. Advisor(IR) has said that he has discussed the issue at all concerned levels and some unanimity is emerging and hopefully the issue will be settled shortly.


  1. Sir,
    How long sir,
    There is no concrete order for availing the pass benefit even for on duty travel on par with other ministry staff.
    now a days NFIR and AIRF have become spineless body.
    only the loco running staff who are the backbone of the railways can strive for the injustice meted out to all railwaymen.

  2. yes i understand that ailrsa gives tough fight for everything. kudos to their rights and fighting spirit.
