Responding to the communication received from Railway Board vide letter dated 30/11/2017 seeking views of the Federation on priority, NFIR vide its letter dated 11/12/2017 gave detailed justification for implementation of 7th CPC recommendations for introduction of revised cadre of Medical Laboratory Staff on Indian Railways and also suggested the Railway Board to convene a meeting. Subsequently, Federation has written letters dated 24/04/2018 and 24/10/2018 to Railway Board. There is however, no response from Railway Board.
In this connection, Federation reiterates that the inaction on the part of Board has been causing disappointment and frustration among the Laboratory Staff of Medical Department in Railways especially when some relief has been given through recommendation by 7th CPC. Federation further states that it is willing to discuss the subject in detail for reaching conclusion.
NFIR, once again urges upon the Railway Board to expedite action in the matter and apprise progress to this office soon.
