Sub: Creation of non-gazetted revenue posts (crew only) on Railways.
In terms of Board’s letter No. 2015-B-235 dated 10.9.2020 vide which O.M. dated 04.9.2020 of Ministry of Finance was circulated on Indian Railways, there is a ban on creation of new posts except with the approval of Department of Expenditure.
In view of the difficulties being faced by the Zonal Railways in undertaking crew rationalization and creation of non-gazetted revenue posts arising out of the crew review exercise. Ministry of Finance was approached for seeking exemption from the above mentioned provision of OM dated 04.9.2020.
Ministry of Finance, keeping in view the requirement of Railways for delegation of powers to undertake crew rationalization and create non-gazetted revenue posts necessitated by crew review exercise, have, in relaxation of their O.M. dated 04.09.2020 delegated powers to Railways to create non-gazetted revenue posts (crew only) as part of the crew review exercise.
Accordingly, Zonal railways are hereby delegated the powers for creation of non-gazetted revenue posts (crew only) if any, which is necessitated by crew review exercise in consultation with Zonal Finance.
Clarifications required , if any, arising out of this delegation may be addressed to Manpower Planning Directorate of this Ministry.
