Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of Pass Rules and grant of travel facility on privilege pass as per the choice of pass holder — Railway Board’s clarification-requested.

NFIR invites attention of the Railway Board to the provisions contained in Advance Correction Slip No. 32 to the Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 (2nd Edition 1993) where in Rule 3 (vi) which are as under :-
“Privilege pass shall be issued for journey from the starting station to the destination station as desired by the Railway servant, via shortest route, provided that a longer route may be permitted on the Privilege Pass in the following circumstances:-

a) Two alternative routes are available for a destination, for example — Bombay to Calcutta via Nagpur or via Allahabad and Bombay to Delhi by the Central Railway or by the Western Railway — such pass may be permitted by either route irrespective of the distance involved;


b) If the distance to destination via a longer route preferred by the Railway servant does not exceed by fifteen percent of the distance via the direct route such pass may be issued even if a double journey over a small portion is involved (for example — ex Chittaranjan to Kancharapara via Howrah or ex-Lucknow to a station on the Southern/ South Central Railway via Bombay VT), provided the distance does not exceed the distance via the shortest route by more than 15% to take advantage of terminal facilities as in Bombay VT — Kalyan or Madras — Arakkonam sections;


c) If the longer route to destination is quicker than the direct route irrespective of distance involved.”

Federation has received staff representations (also retired staff) that when entitlement and choice is available between (a), (b) & (c) as per ACS No.32, the authorities have been reluctant in issuing the privilege/complimentary passes by wrongly interpreting to the effect that clauses 3(vi) (b) and (c) are independent provisions as they have been separated by the word ‘or’ between them, thereby, the provision in Rule 3(vi) (a) is also independent.

Federation contends that the interpretation as above is not correct in view of the fact that the three provisions are meant to allow staff to avail either 3(vi) (a) or (b) or (c) as per their convenience. The incorrect interpretation by the Railway authorities has resulted deprival of right to employee to take journey on his privilege pass, Similarly, the retired staff are also denied, the privilege of travel as per their choice route on their post retirement complimentary passes.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue suitable clarification to the Zonal Railways etc., to enable the staff to avail privilege/complimentary passes and take journey as per their choice in terms of provisions contained in ACS No.32. copy of clarificatory instructions may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully
General Secretary.
