  1. One thing I should pray to be muted, that All railway employee starting their career as Loco Running Staff (Initial Appoint Either Assistant Driver or Goods Guard) should get retirement/ terminal benefit as a Running staff ( i.e. 55% pensionery benefit) because many of us could not complete their career as Running staff either for physical ground (they only get 30% benefit , but not retirement benefit) or many other ground. Even some cases they have to switch to other category without any benefit. So, there should be a uniform rule, that those enter in Railway (Initial Appointment) as Loco Running Staff should be treated as beneficiary of 55% Retirement benefit as running staff irrespective of the designation they are holding at the time of retirement (except if they are promoted to Gaz. rank).
