Sub: Grant of Transport Allowance at double the normal rates to the employees disabled due to accident on duty or off duty – reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR’s letter No.II/28/Pt.IV dated 23/06/2012 and 07/07/2012.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No.PC-V/2010/A/TA/1 dated 20/06/2012.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No.II/28/Pt.IV dated 07/06/2013.
Federation vide its letter No.II/28/Pt.IV dated 23/06/2012 followed by another letter dated 07/07/2012 has provided the details of specific case, unfortunately no reply has been received from the Railway Board despite reminder dated 07/06/2013, perhaps the issue has not been finalised even after lapse of over one year’s period.
NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to decide the case and also issue instructions to the General Managers of the Zones & Productions Units for allowing Transport Allowance at double the rates of normal rate to the disabled railway employees at an early date. Federation may be apprised of the outcome.
