Though a period of more than two months has passed, there has been no progress and it is also not known whether Railway Board is pursuing the matter with DoP&T.

NFIR once again requests the Railway Board (MS & FC) to kindly take up at the level of DoP&T immediately to accord acceptance of the recommendations of 7th CPC for upgradation of the above posts early.

Action taken may be advised to the Federation soon.

Yours faithfully
