No.AIRF/82 Dated: August 23, 2010
The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,
Sub: Entitlement of Privilege Pass
Today I met the CRB, MS, AMS and Adviser(IR), Railway Board and apprised them the serious unrest prevailing amongst the Railwaymen because of inordinate delay in the matter of New Pass Rules. They have informed me that that the matter is being pursued vigorously. But I know, Finance is become stumbling block and that is the reason, it is being delayed badly.
I also warned them that in case this issue is not resolved early, Railways should ready to face the anger of the Railwaymen; which may lead to serious agitation of the Railwaymen.
And since “No” is not coming from higher echelons of the Railway Board; we have to wait for some more.
They have assured to settle the matter shortly.,
With fraternal greetings!
