Respected sir,

why the rostered duty hours of intensive category are fixed taking into account all seven days of a week?

whereas duty hours of other categories are fixed by taking into account only six days of a week! is this not

voilate international labour organisations' recomondation which states "six days for the employer and one day

for the employee.To do so the duty rosters of intensive cadre are prepared in a such a way that they are called

for duty with a mere daily rest of 12 hrs ,three times in week.actually which is the daily rest of essentially

intermittent category .Their(intensive) periodic rest is never suspended.This calling for duty with 12 hrs of daily

rest causes lot of inconveniance to the employee which is again a HOER violation. I want to know whether my

interpretation of rules correct or not? If correct where to represent these issues to get justice?If not what are the

correct rules?

And also I WANT TO KNOW FROM WHERE I CAN GET THE DUTY ROSTERS FOR INTENSIVE CATEGORY

APPROVED BY GOVERNMENT OF INDIA.

THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR THE HELP!

All the rosters are calculated taking into account 7 days a week and not 6 days a week. HOER is prepared taking into account different nature of works for employees. Weekly working hours of diiferent categories are

  • Intesive - 42 hours
  • C - 48 hours
  • EI - 60 hours (quarters not provided ) and 72 hours (quarters provided).

So the Intensive roster employee is given less hours of work taking into consideration intensive nature of his duties.

Imagine the plight of an employee who works 72 hours a week. Even if his nature of job is light, he is on duty.

Minimum rest in Intensive roster is 30 hours( which is more than a day or 24 hour).

Duty rosters are prepared by the supervisor concerned(like Station Manager for a Station) and approved by DPO. It can be any roster which does not violate provisions of HOER.

If you are not happy with Intensive roster , you can ask for a Job Analysis to convert it to Continuous. As this is more benefitial for administration it may be sanctioned without delay. But think before doing that - because you will be working 6 hours more per week.

sir, 

I can understand the plight of the essentially intermittent employees,but  when comparision has started i want to add some misleading HOER Rules, which will make u to agree with Nasir.Firstly as you said E.I staff get only 24 hours of rest is incorrect.Actually they get 32 hrs of rest and 28 hrs of rest after performing night and day shifts respectively.

And the next thing is, rest is to be given to each and every  employee ,irrespective of category.Since calender rest cannot be given at a time to all essential categories, the concept of periodic rest and daily rest  is introduced by the International Labour Organization.Daily rest implies to that rest, which employee enjoys between two consecutive duties.It is the responsibility of the administration to see that both the rest are given to the employees honestly.It is the daily rest where the intensive staff get cheated.In the case of intensive staff both the periodic rest and the daily rest are mixed up and presented to the staff as periodic rest.By rule they are getting 30hrs of periodic rest but not the daily rest of 16 hrs. As nasir has mentioned, they are required to come for duty with a mere daily rest of 12 hrs, three times in a week, proves what i said. It is requirement of the administration and the nature of the job which forces staff to perform shift duties where providing calender rest is not possible to all the staff.Till now it is o.k, but the administration cannot give a rest (daily and periodic)which is less than prescribed.

E.C and E.I staff get proper daily and periodic rest, even if they did not get in one duty it is compensated in other duty.But it is not the case with intensive.The foregone daily rest is never given to the employee.

HOER says rest giver to be provided during rest giving program, but intensive staff are given rest w/o using the the rest giver.To facilitate this, administration has framed duty rosters which makes intensive staff to perform all  four shifts consecutively with a daily rest of 12 between each duty.This occurs every week.

As intensive staff perform 6hrs duty daily ,their rest never get suspended.Because it is obvious, they are performing duty on their rest day and it is considered as duty only by the administration.AMAZING! is not.

HOER ALLOWS TO PREFIX OR SUFFIX LEAVE WITH REST. BUT INTENSIVE STAFF  ARE REQUIRED TO MARK LEAVE ON THEIR REST DAY WASTING AWAY THEIR PRECESIOUS LEAVE.Because they are required to perform duty on their rest day.AGAIN AMAZING OR SAD.

See the criteria for calculating the leave period and periodic rest for all categories.The periodic rest starts immediately  after performing duty  calender day is not considered, whereas the leave starts from odd hrs.What i mean to say is that calender day should be used to calculate periodic rest  also. Because the employee has already completed his duty for the previous day and the remaining hrs(of previous day) exclusively belongs to him. Because he has sold only 6/8/12 hrs per day to the employer.

This injustice is being done  to railway staff from decades, may be it is carelessness of the staff or their ignorance.Nobody is complaining.I have wrote this with an expectation that somebody will come forward and rise voice against this injustice.

You have to represent the matter to the officers concerned and get a Job Analysis done to reclassify duty to Continuous (8hours).

sir,
What is the criteria to form new controlled sections?what is the min and max traffic flow to consider to depute a section controller to work for 8hrs(contineous) or 6hrs (intensive) per shift?
what is the min and max length of the section to be taken to form a controlled section? and who is authorized or empowered to make this?
Because on Indian Railways on some zones and on some controlled sections, section controllers are working for 8 hrs per shift which is the normal duty and perform 12 hrs during over time. But nowhere in the HOER it is mentioned that section controllers are required to work for 8 hrs per day in normal course. In such cases whom to approach so as controllers can be made to work 6 hrs per day.
In advance Thanks for the reply

The criteria to classify a job as C (8 hours) or I (6 hours ) is a job analysis done for 72 consecutive hours.
This has to be ordered by DPO. Grievances in this regard also has to be addressed to DPO.
It doesnt depend on length of section as some long sections have less traffic. So it depends on work load.
