Dear Sir, 

Sub: Privilege Passes to Railway Staff and their families – crediting
of un-utilized passes to the Pass account of employees-reg. 
In terms of extant provisions contained in General Pass Rules, an employee
is allowed to draw three (03) sets of Privilege Passes per annum upon completion of 5 years
service and this Privilege is allowed every year. There are instances wherein the employees are unable to
avail all the three sets of

Privilege Passes in each year due to various reasons, mainly non-grant of
leave, family problems etc. In such situations the un-availed Privilege Passes get lapsed as the same are
not allowed to be credited to the pass account of the employee in the subsequent year. 
Representations have since been received from staff working in the safety
categories/public interface categories, urging that their un-availed passes be credited to
their pass account to facilitate them to avail the Privilege Passes later on when the need arises. NFIR is of the
view that the staff representations are genuine, therefore, required to be addressed by the
Board. It needs to be appreciated that the employees are not demanding additional Privilege Passes, but what
they wanted is that their un-availed legitimate Privilege Passes be credited to their pass account so
that they can avail those Privilege Passes in subsequent years, whenever situation demands. It also
needs to be appreciated that the demand for crediting the un-availed Privilege Passes to the pass account of
employees, if accepted, will not result in any additional financial implications. 
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the case for
allowing accumulation of Privilege Passes in the respective pass accounts of staff instead lapsing
the entitlement when they are unable to avail within the year of eligibility.
