AIRF opposed for Continuous evaluation of trainees during the course of the training programmes/ Refresher Courses

No.AIRF/(MPP)                                                    Dated: October 26, 2010

The Secretary(E),

Railway Board,

New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Continuous evaluation of trainees during the course of the training programmes

   Ref: Board’s letter No.E(MPP)2010/3/32 dated 19.7.2010

              It is a matter of great surprise that the Railway Board have proposed to introduce the scheme of Continuous evaluation of trainees during the course of the training programmes without any consultation with the organized labour.

             In this connection, attention of the Board is invited towards the demand raised by AIRF in DC/JCM Forum to liberalize the scheme in such a way that there should not be any written exam at the end of Refresher Courses. On the contrary, the proposed scheme envisages weekly evaluation through written, oral or practical test, which in our opinion shall be quite difficult practice and detrimental to the interests of the trainees as well.

           The Board are aware that because of already existing complicacies in the Training Modules of different courses, most of the Railway employees avoid to undergo training which in lieu of imparting knowledge puts the trainees under undue burden of exams and exertion. This also gives rise to malpractices during the training programme.

            In view of the above, the Federation had demanded to liberalize the training programmes in such a way that written examinations are done away with at least in Refresher Courses and the Training Modules are designed in such a way that the same are attractive and practical knowledge based for the Railway employees so that the staff happily joins these training programmes rather than avoiding it.

            It appears that the proposed scheme in place of liberalizing training programmes has altogether de-liberalized it and has stepped forward to suggest amendment in IREM also, which is highly unfair and AIRF strongly opposes its implementation.

             It may also be recalled that after regular persuasions with the Board, the Federation had succeeded to eliminate written examination in selections for promotion to a Selection Post, and in case the present scheme of continuous evaluation is introduced, the same would totally spoil the entire settlement.

             AIRF is therefore, totally against implementation of such a retrograde scheme and wish to forewarn that implementation of the scheme will lead to massive agitation and suggests not to think of such scheme. In case Railway administration wishes to discuss some betterment in the training programme, the Federation is always ready to discuss it with open mind. However, such proposals not only give surprise but also a lot of distress and some times we feel pity on the wisdom of those who have made such proposals.

Yours faithfully,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)
