Sub: Replacement of terminology “Medical Decategorisation” as “Alternate Employment on medical ground” in Chapter-XIII, IREM, Vol-I (Revised Edition 1989), first reprint edition 2009, arbitrary decision of Health Directorate in gross violation of DC/JCM agreement – reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM item No.14/20l5.
(ii) Record Note of discussions held by ED/E(N) with NFIR on 07/05/2015
circulated under letter No.E(NG)I/201l/RE-3/12 dated 04/06/2015 .
(iii) NFIR’s letter No.II/l9/Pt.2 dated 12/08/2015 &28/06/2016
The subject matter came up for discussion during NFIR’s PNM meeting held with Railway Board on ll/l/2017 where Staff Side wanted to change in the proforma vide which circulated by the Health Director of Railway Board in the line with the earlier circular. In the meeting it was agreed by the Administration that the case may be examined and Federation was also requested to indicate the problems being faced because of the revised proforma.
In this connection, NFIR once again points out that in the DivisionsAJnits when the employee found unfit for the post held by him, the medical authorities are not clearly mentioning in the unfit certificate that the employee is “declared unfit for the post held by him’ although vision wise he is fit and recommended for alternative post”.
NFIR therefore urges upon the Railway to issue clarificatory instructions to the Zonal Railways etc as urged by the Federation through PNM discussions. A copy of the instructions may also be endorsed to the Federation.
