Sir my father works as a points man in hyderabad division,3 days before he met with an grevious accident on duty and lost his right hands little finger and left ear. Ive got the IOD forms filled all the particulars got the signature and attestation from SMR and divisional health unit doctor. To whom all should i submit these forms.

And also the year of joining of my father is 1981 as a points man,he is still a points man. Though he is top on the seniority list the concerned officials are drafting him down the list. He has been trying to become a goods guard since 5-6 years already. Please advice how can he address this issue.



You have to submit the forms to Divisional Personnel Officer. It is better to meet Welfare Inspector of the section before doing so. HE can help you. 

Once his health condition become normal, there will be a re medical examination and there may be a change of category according to medical report.

yesterday(22.08.2012)  read in newspaper that parliament is yet to enact necessary amendments to prescribe the quota of reservation for promotion in government services as the validity of rule for promotion has expired (also read in another  newspaper it has expired due to Supreme Court order). So AS ON DATE, is promotion for SC/ST quota stopped in Railways?

This is a once in 5 year drama. Reservations will continue. Few times Supreme Court has made some steps to check in the system of Reservation. But each time Govt made it sure that it finds an alternate law to go around and continue they system.

Whether hospital leave is eligible for the ministerial staff working in Railway who met accident while going to duty / or going home after duty hrs? If eligible under which rule is applicable ? How the time period will be calculated before and after duty hrs?

A RPF staff while coming for duty had met with an accident around 06'30 AM. His duty time starts at 07:00 AM.  Is he eligible for Hospital leave and can be considered a case of INjury on Duty
