URMU Suggestions for Board Decision on Train Captains

The Railway Board has decided upon the nomination of ‘Train Captain’ to take up responsibility for all facilities aboard a train. Since not all trains have a TS, the Zonal Railways can nominate the senior most ticket checking staff as the Train Captain. URMU suggests the following in this regard,

– Filling up the vacancies for Ticket Checking Staff at almost all Zonal Railway Headquarters.
– Expedite the process of creating additional posts of Ticket Checking Staff as per the laid down norms for new trains and special trains.
– Enforcing the agreement reached with NFIR (on PNM item no. 05/2015) for restoration of Board’s order dated 17/04/2000 for manning of coaches by the Ticket Checking Staff.
– Rectifying the acute shortage of Ticket Checking Staff for trains being managed by single TTEs to enable the Train Captain policy.
