Every Zonal Railway Union must decide one representative for each group, having outstanding ability and dedication as also deep overall knowledge of the departments of the concerned group.
One representative from each of the affiliated unions in the Production Units/Metro Railway Kolkata and RDSO for overall evidence in the same spirit.
Representatives, so decided, be guided to go through the memorandum of the AIRF submitted to VII CPC as also technological and system changes added in the railway system in various departments.
Video Clippings/PowerPoint Presentations of intricate posture workings, sophisticated works, locomotives, coaches, wagons, bridges, maintenance depots, sheds, yards, traction, RRIs etc. be also compiled for the presentation besides preparation to reflect human input in performing particular job content. Write-ups should be very brief and pointed so as to complete the evidence within maximum 10 minutes.
Like past, “Internal Meetings” of the AIRF will be managed one-day in advance of the hearing of the particular groups at the respective places, which will be communicated, once schedule of the hearings is finalized by the Pay Commission, and the names of the representatives to appear for the evidence will be decided after Internal Meeting, based on the limitation of the Pay Commission.
Hoping your due attention.
