  1. A lot of changes for the pay strecture of railway staff!!!
    What is there for ASST LOCO PILOTS?
    We work 365 days to give salaries to railway officers enjoying life.
    Now the A.L.P's just sacrifice their life for the enjoyment of others.
    NOW PLEASE TRY TO REDUCE A.L.P's grade pay to 1800 and make them GRADE 4
    That may relieve them from responsibilites.
    THANK YOU for the efforts.!!!
