With a launch of number of cadre and service related modules of HRMS, number of activities which are presently done manually have been brought under the scope of HRMS. In this context, suggestions/requests are frequently being received from various field units with respect to launch of various modules of HRMS.

  1. Currently approved modules shall be designed by CRIS primarily keeping in view the requirements of field units and making the user interface simple to the extent possible providing due flexibility for varying procedures.
  2. If the field units desire to have modifications in the existing modules, they may consolidate their views on the modules and send the proposals to CRIS & Board with the approval of PCPOs in a self-contained note detailing the requirement and justification thereof. In case of conflict in the requirements or change in procedures, Railway Board will be the nodal authority to give clarification.
  3. In the case of modules which are under development, views of any of the selected Field Units may be taken into consideration by CRIS to ensure that the requirements and practices being followed by most field units are captured and reflected in the modules. CRIS officials should also consult the concerned ED and AM/PED in Railway Board when modules are under development.
  4. On completion of the development of the modules, before launching the same on Pan India Basis, modules may be tested on any of the select Railways and pilot launched as per necessity in consultation with the Board (respective ED and AM/PED and DG HR).
