Industrial relations in railways

I assign highest importance to continuance of healthy and harmonious tradition of industrial relations across length and breadth of Indian Railways. In recognition of the commitment of the employees to the organisation and their contribution to increasing the productivity, Indian Railways paid the Productivity Linked Bonus equivalent to wages of 78 days for 2010-11.

  • Decisions relating to policies on employment, transfer ,promotion, training, adoption of latest technology, wages,  lay off are no longer can be determined unilaterally by the management and employees unions has to be consulted.
