Transfer of Union Bearer after refusal of Promotion for 02 times

Submitted by rajini10 on Mon, 12/02/2018 - 10:47

Is there any provision prevailing in Indian Railway Promotion Rules which may enable administration to order for transfer of an union bearer after refusal of promotion for 02 times. However, provision is there to transfer out an employee in same grade to any station as per administrative requirement after refusal of promotion for 02 times vide Master Circular No. 24 but there is no provision indicated that an union bearer can also be treated in the same line of action.

if any Policy or letter supporting this issue please quote the reference number.

Is it required to have 2yr of minimum service as SR.ALP to get promoted to SHUNTER or total 2 yr service within ALP/SR.ALP.
