Provision of seats for Travelling Ticket Examiner (TTE), RPF, GRP and Conductors in the trains
Provision of seats for TTEs/Conductors in the trains-reg.
Ref: Railway Board’s letter no. 2003/TG-1/20/P/2 dated 02/11/2017 (Commercial Circular No. 72 of 2017).
Kind attention is invited to the points raised by the NFIR in the opening address of the PNM meeting on 13/14th November, 2017 at Rail Bhavan, relating to provision of berths/seats to the conductors/TTEs. While referring the Commercial Circular No. 72/2017, the Federation has pointed out “that the said circular provides for one berth in 2AC and one berth in 3AC Coaches, whereas the composition of Mail/Express, Superfast Trains varies from 3-4 to 5-6-7-8 or 9-10 Coaches. The said Commercial Circular has not specified that when the composition of trains varies with the increase of Coaches, the berths are required to be earmarked for conductors/TTEs and in absence of clarity in Commercial Circular No. 72/2017, the Ticket Checking Staff manning AC Coaches are facing lot of inconvenience due to non-provision of earmarked berth/seat for them”.
It is however noticed that the Railway Board has not taken remedial measures by providing berths on the basis of composition of number of Coaches on Mail/Express and super fast trains.
NFIR once gain requests the Railway Board (AM/Commercial) to kindly get the matter checked up for the purpose of providing one berth out of two AC Coaches for the conductors/TTEs and accordingly issue clarificatory instructions to the Zonal Railway soon.
