Mamata assures to bring VRS for railways' running staff

New Delhi, Jul 13 : Union Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee today assured the running staff of the Railways to introduce Voluntary Retirement scheme (VRS) for them.

Addressing the All India Running Staff Conference here, Ms Banerjee also agreed to take further the Federation's demand of employing the wards of those workers who accept VRS before 50 years of age.
''I will send the proposal in this regard to the Finance Ministry to make the scheme applicable as soon as possible,'' she stated.
Lauding the working of the Railway department, she said, ''I know the railway employees work very hard. They usually have long working hours.'' ''I will talk to the HRD Ministry for facilitating Railway employees' children's higher education in medical and engineering institutes,'' the Trinamool Congress Chief said.
Loco and traffic running staff had also been demanding for a long time to rename the train guard post as train manager, better medical facilities for running staff, increasing the compensation from Rs 10 lakh to 20 lakh in case of death of running staff during working hours.
