Office Memorandum

    Subject : Implementation of recommendations of Kamlesh Chandra Committee on giving preference to Casual Labourers in selection to GDS posts-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to para 14.26 of GDS Committee on giving preference to Casual Labourers in selection to GDS posts. The Committee observed that, the scheme of employing casual labourers is not in vogue from 01.09.1993 onwards and those eligible among those who were selected before 01.09.1993 would have been selected to eligible posts by now. Department has earmarked 25% of vacancies for them for recruitment as Multi Tasking Staff in Post/Mail Offices as per Recruitment Ru1es. The committee is of the view that there is no need to notify GDS vacancies to Casual Labourers as of now. Such a provision will indirectly pave the way for backdoor entry of ineligible candidates to GDS service. Department may examine this aspect.

2. The matter has been examined and following orders are issued:-

(i) As per the scheme for Casual Labourers (Grant of Temporary Status and Regularisation, temporary status is granted to those Casual Labourers who were in employment as on 10.09.1993, subject to fulfillment of certain conditions. Such Casuai Labourers who complete 3 years of service are to be treated at par with temporary MTS employees and are entitled to various benefits viz. leave, holidays, CGEGIS, GPF, Medical aid, LTC etc. and counting of temporary service after regularization for retirement benefits. Further, engagement of Casual Labourers is not permissible after the cutoff date.

(ii) There is already provision in the Recruitment Rules of MTS 2018 issued vide Directorate letter no.37-33/2009-SPB-I dated 27th August 2018 giving preference to Casual Labourers for regularization in service on seniority basis. Department has earmarke d. 25% of vacancies for Casual Labourer. If Casual Labourers are engaged as GDS, there may be a scenario wherein a Casual Labourer, who was about to get regularized as per the Recruitment Rules 2018 of Multi Tasking Staff, may not be considered for regularization as MTS.

(iii) In view of the above, it has been decided by the Competent Authority that, GDS vacancies should not be notified for Casual Labourers from the date of issue of this OM.

3. The above instructions will come into effect from the date of issue of this O.M

"OTP Based Refund against Cancelled Ticket or Fully Waitlisted Dropped Ticket Booked by IRCTC Authorised Agents"

Indian Railways introduces a new OTP based refund system for tickets booked through authorized railway ticketing agents. This is aimed to bring in a transparent and customer friendly refund system for reserved e-tickets which are cancelled or which are fully waitlisted dropped tickets. This new system will be implemented by Indian Railways PSU, Indian Railway Catering & Tourism Corporation Limited (IRCTC).

The OTP (One time Password) will be received as SMS on the registered mobile number of the passenger (provided by the customer/passenger to the agent at the time of booking). The customer/passenger will be required to share the OTP with the agent who booked the ticket, for getting the refund amount.

Through this user friendly facility, passenger will come to know about the exact refund amount received by agent on his behalf against cancelled ticket or fully waitlisted dropped ticket.

The objective of the scheme is to streamline the cancellation refund process further so that cancellation amount is refunded timely to the customer by the agents.

Customers are advised:

  1.     To provide correct mobile no. of one of the passengers to the IRCTC authorised agent at the time of booking reserved rail e-tickets.
  2.     To ensure that the agent records   his or her mobile no. correctly at the time of booking reserved rail e-tickets.
  3.     To note that only IRCTC authorised agents are permitted to book reserved rail e-tickets to the customer
  4.     And to note that OTP based refund for cancelled tickets or fully waitlisted dropped tickets, will be processed only if the ticket is booked through IRCTC authorised agents.
