CMS is following alternative I. (earlier Alternative II was followed). Alternative III to be followed.

(Both the alternative will give same result if there is no differential rate of over time.)

> 8 hrs

16 hrs

0700 hrs

B

1600 hrs

< 8 hrs

12 hrs

0400 hrs

 

If crew is ordered after 0700 hrs Order in which crew will be displayed will be

B

A

Though crew A was IN first, but displayed as no 2 in order of availability.

CMS is following above.

CMS by default follows FAFO. Option has been provided to configure independently each division to follow FAFO or FIFO on request.

( There is very little difference in both the options except for rare typical cases hence facility to configure the criteria as FIFO or FAFO at Divisional level is acceptable.)

As per FIFO list of all crew satisfying above criteria in order of their time of availability (first in & rest completed) is displayed for booking (Under rest crew is also displayed in different colour,). Supervisor can book any crew appearing in the list thus displayed over ruling the order of the list, after giving reason for the same.

 

Requirement to dispense with certain criteria for booking of crew was envisaged to be used in extreme conditions. E.g. Trains to be run on diverted route in case of flood accident etc.

However Railways have been doing large no of booking following fetch crew all option.

 

( However exceptions for shunters are not acceptable. Medical and refresher traffic are must requirement from the point of view of physical fitness and basic operational competence, hence cannot be dispensed with.)

 

9.      Visibility of circulars

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

Circular created by lobby are visible to crew of that lobby at HQ and even at other lobby (Outstation lobby)

Circular created by lobby are visible to crew of that lobby at HQ and even at other lobby, in addition circular of other lobby are also available to OS crew signing ON and that lobby

 

CMS is following Alternative I. Please confirm if alternative II is to be followed.

( Alternative I shall be followed as a crew can go to lobbies in more than one division also. If he is required to read all the circulars of all the divisions

 

10.  Back Reporting

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

CMS allows back reporting till crew ‘sign ON’ on the system

CMS allows back reporting till crew sign ON even after crew has signed ON and performed other duties

 

This may create problem in calculation of mileage and other reports as duties being filled later may change the mileage for the duties which have already been captured in the system. e.g. continuous run

 

LR updation will be affected. The count for no of trips required for LR will be disturbed.

 

In case staff being booked  as per their progressive hours,   this will cause a change in the booking disturbing earlier bookings

 

A large no of procedures are fired to update database tables daily at predetermined time / event. All the data entries will be affected.

 

Major changes in application will be required as the flow of application is changing drastically

 

CMS is following Alternative I. Alternative II is not recommended. Possibility of manual data entry for all subsequent duties again with back reporting can be explored. For example say data has been captured till 10th of month and then from 15th to 25th of the month. Now on 25th if back reporting for a period from 10th to 15th is required, manual data entry will be required from 10th to 25th instead of 19th to 15th.

( Post facto change needs to be verified for mandatory requirements like PME and REFT and RDT etc. and pervious duty details, and at the same time will affect all the runs after the change as well, hence not recommended.)

 

11.  Result awaited

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

Crew once sent on some non run reason (refresher training etc.) requires result of the training available to bring him back from non run and utilize him for duty.

·           Crew to be allowed to be brought back from non run with result status as awaited.

·           Crew will be allowed to work normally if due date is not over.

·           In case due date for that non run reason is over crew will be allowed to be utilized with restriction depending upon type of training for which result is awaited.

 

CMS is following Alternative II with the release of ver 3.8.0 (earlier Alternative I was followed).

( results shall be given at the end of course before departure of crew for HQ.)

 

12.  Mileage for mail exp crew utilized for freight operation

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

Mail Exp crew is permitted for Freight (through manual data entry only) and mileage calculation is done as per Freight rules. Benefits applicable for freight crew e.g. km based incentive are applicable.

Mail Exp crew is allowed to be booked for Freight (through manual data entry only) and mileage calculation is done as per Freight rules but without the benefit of incentive etc.

 

CMS is following Alternative I. Please confirm if alternative II is to be followed.

(Since crew is being utilized in freight service, benefits of freight service shall be payable to crew.)

 

13.  Automatic bringing back crew from non run

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

Crew is brought back from the non run by the supervisor (normally after crew has reported at lobby as per the practice pre CMS days) even if expected date and time of arrival is provided in the non run.

Crew to be brought back automatically out of non run where expected date of arrival is available with the system.

crew will be back automatically at 23:59 hrs.

 

CMS is following Alternative II for all non run reason with the release of ver 3.8.0. (Earlier Alternative I was followed for all non run reason except leave where alternative II was followed)

( Earlier crew was required to report to the lobby and only then he was treated as available. With increasing distance and increase in means of communication, there is no need for the crew to report to lobby. Where expected date of arrival is available crew should automatically be made available at the start of the day. Whether crew shall be booked from odd hours or after night hrs (0600 hrs) or any other pre defined hr, needs to be reviewed separately.)

 

 

 

14.  Authority to ‘sign ON’ on behalf of crew

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

Only lobby where crew has signed off is authorized to make crew status as sign ON. Through manual data entry. In case if crew could not sign ON at the lobby due to non availability of CMS application (network or power problem), Crew can sign OFF at destination only after entry for sign ON has been made by the starting lobby.

 

This required lobby to sign ON on behalf of crew by obtaining his password.

Provision for lobby supervisor to sign ON on behalf of crew in his absence with mandatory declaration by supervisor for the following.

 

Supervisor will be asked to confirm the following for sign ON to take place

please conform the following

·           crew has read the circular

·           crew is carrying glasses

·           crew has passed the BA test

·           Crew is carrying personal mobile (if yes, give the no and service provider)

·           Reason for sign ON by supervisor

·           I take the reponsibility for crew sign ON


Form will display all other fields being displayed on Kiosk at the time of sign ON
This sign ON will automatically mean sign ON approval

 

 

 

CMS was following Alternative I. Alternative II provided with release of version 3.10.0.

 

There is additional demand that in addition to the sign off lobby, divisional control to be permitted to do ‘sign ON’, on behalf of crew.

( For the reasons beyond the control of lobby such as network failure, power failure, system failure etc. there is need to send the crew without signing on in the system. Since supervisor has to ensure that necessary safety precautions have been taken before crew can perform the duty, supervisor shall be allowed to ‘sign on’ on behalf of crew after necessary certification.)

 

 

15.  Route distance

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

While creating new routes inter station data is picked up from RBS database. (Earlier FOIS database). Inter station distances than can be edited from CRIS in presence of representative from user lobby.

No change is permitted in the inter station data picked up from RBS database. (Earlier FOIS database)

Mileage is corrected as per the practice and requirement of user lobby

Mileage will not be as per user requirement and will lead to non usage of CMS application

Interstation distance for the same station in different routes can be different

Inter station distance will always be as per FOIS data.

 

CMS is following Alternative I. Please confirm if alternative II is to be followed.

(No change in RBS data shall be permitted. In case a discrepancy is observed there is need to correct the RBS data and route data be reconciled from RBS data only)

 

16.  Route creation

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

Only CRIS is authorized to create new route or edit new routes as per requirement of user lobby in the presence of representative of user lobby

Div control / Lobby to be authorized to create and edit routes

Editing of routes data is not frequent and some control is available

Routes may be edited and created frequently with out any control.

This may lead to error in mileage calculation and also creation of unnecessary redundant routes.

 

CMS is following Alternative I. Please confirm if alternative II is to be followed.

(Creation of routes at lobby level will lead to creation of multiple routes even if existing routes can serve the purpose and is not recommended. Creation of superfluous routes will load the data base also)

 

17.  Spare by road (Ahemdabad)

 

Present system

Additional requirement

Crew signing on at station A performing duty from station B for freight, crew may go from A to B as spare either by rail or by road

 

Crew signing on at station A performing duty from station B for freight, crew may go from A to B as spare either by rail or by road

 

CMS system gives mileage from A to B, for spare working based on rail distance even if crew goes by road.

 

A new duty type option of spare Rd required, which will give fixed mileage km to be filled at the time creating TA, and also at the time of manual data entry for crew going as spare by road.

 

 

CMS is following Alternative I. Please confirm if additional facility as alternative II is to be followed.

(The existing practice of mileage as per railway route even if crew is being sent by road may be followed for uniform practice.)

 

18.  Clarifications of rule regarding Coal Pilot

 

A.      CMS system for calculation of Coal Pilot mileage is working at present as per logic below

·         “For all coal pilot working Base station is defined and corresponding to base, coal pilot sidings are defined. 

·         The base station can be a lobby station or even a non lobby station.

·         Crew Sign ON at Lobby and  goes

o    Lobby -à base station -à siding

o    Siding -à Base Station -à Lobby

·         Crew Sign OFF at Lobby on return

·         Duty hrs starts from Sign ON at lobby to Sign OFF at lobby

·         Mileage for Lobby to base station & base station to Lobby is normal freight mileage.

·         From base station to siding,

o    Predefined mileage  (km ) is given as configured for that siding

o    Bonus km as configured for that siding are added if crew perform journey from base to CP siding and returns back to base with in pre defined time as configured.

B.      Coal Pilot working is handled through manual data entry only, as time of arrival and departure at base station cannot be captured being NCMS point

C.      Requirement to include calculation of mileage for the following type of working has arisen as under:

a.       If crew goes from Base station to Coal pilot siding 1 and then proceed to another Coal pilot siding 2 and then come back to base station. There is no rule to attach two or more than two siding to a single base station

b.       If crew goes from Base station to Coal pilot siding and does not return to base or proceed to other lobby.

c.        Clarification of rule regarding above 2 points is requested. This can be handled by making fixed mileage routes for all such possible working at present.

 

D.      Coal pilot for Private siding (Bilaspur)

 

Present system; Alternative I

Additional requirement: Alternative II

Crew signing on at station A then doing coal pilot duty for a siding (available in FOIS)

 

Crew signing on at station A then doing coal pilot duty for a siding (available in FOIS)

 

Pre configured mileage for that siding paid. Two values are configured for each siding based on duty hrs from Sign ON to Sign OFF at the base lobby.

 

Crew to work from FOIS siding to one private siding then come back to main siding and go to another private siding without coming back to base lobby.

FOIS Siding is non CMS point so there is no way to record no of trips to individual pvt. siding. Can be done through manual data entry but will require pvt. siding to be defined in FOIS and configuring mileage and bonus for each pvt. siding etc.

 

E.      New set of rules has been defined for the coal pilot working. A new Module has been developed which will be visible to only those lobbies which are pre configured for coal pilot working.

a.       SET to be defined instead of individual run

b.      SET can consist of one or more than one run

c.       Bonus km and bonus hrs will be applicable to SET

d.      TA will be made for coal pilot with SET to be indicated in route

e.       Sign ON and Sign OFF will be done at KIOSK with option to change the SET.

f.       After sign OFF flow will be directed to new manual entry (different from existing manual entry)

g.       In case crew does not sign OFF at kiosk same can also be handled through  new manual entry. In this case sign OFF time will required to be filled.

h.      All runs will now be pre populated with set details with following changes permitted while saving

·         Opt for new set

·         Loco no/Type, Train No, for individual run

·         Arr. Dep. time for individual run

 

 

19.  Good shed working at the same station (Bilaspur)

 

Present system: Alternative I

Additional requirement: Alternative II

Presently hrs based mileage is given only to the shunter.

Provision is available for creation of yard at the same station, so that crew having suitable yard learning is selected  at the time of linking

Shunting to be performed at the same station with bonus km in addition to hrs based mileage

Now the yard should be configurable for additional bonus km. (similar to coal pilot siding)

Crew if working on these yard(goods shed) will get additional km in addition to hrs based mileage (at present).

Km based mileage is given for freight / coaching

 

               

                CMS is following Alternative I

(There is no provision of giving bonus km for shunting in a particular yard. Such local aberrations shall not be permitted.)

22.  Rest for shunter

 

·         There is no pre defined rest for shunter between two consecutive duties.

·         A shunter can be booked without any rest in the last shift of day 1 and first shift of day 2

·         No BOR is payable as rest is not defined.

(fresh rules to be drafted for shunting duty covering

a)       Maximum duty hrs in a day

b)       Minimum rest hrs between two shunting shifts

c)       Breach of rest allowance for shunters

d)       Maximum night hrs in a week)

 

 

23.  Non Standard Shunting Duty hrs (Kurla)

    1. Mileages should be calculated on 8 hrs shift whereas OT shall be paid after 9 hrs of working such that after

·                     108 Hrs instead of 96 Hrs (as is the case for other lobbies) for shunters

·                     108 Hrs instead of 104 hrs (as is the case for other lobbies) for LPG used on shunting.

    1. Shunting hours duty ceiling of 240 hrs

·                     Port Shuttling: Min 160Km,  Hrs of duty (rounded OFF- Rule2) x 20, max limit 200 Km (240 km for Kurla lobby CLA)

( standard rules to be followed for all the lobbies across Indian Railways. However considering historic reasons for Kurla Lobby existing practice may be permitted till consensus is arrived.)

 

24.  New designation for loco pilot ghat (Kurla)

 

·                     Requirement is to designate particular crew as LPG Ghat in Bio-data. There is no authorized designation as Loco Pilot Ghat. All functions will remain same as Sr LPG. These crew will appear as LP Ghat in Reports only. Does not affect Mileage statement.

(standard rules to be followed for all the lobbies across Indian Railways. However considering historic reasons for Kurla Lobby existing practice may be permitted till consensus is arrived.)

 

25.  Special Mileage (Adra)

a.       Pay 120 km upto 60 km

b.       Pay 3 time  km beyond 60 km

c.        The above mileage is to be paid for any route on authority no 505/506 from Sr DOM

d.       In CMS mileage will be actual km in non min guarantee section and 120 km in min guaranteed section.

e.        This will again require a special duty type. Once selected user will be asked to give authority no and date.

f.        No other mileage (ghat, minimum guarantee, incentive etc.) will be payable over and above the mileage explained above.

g.        Since new option will be available at all lobby points, lobbies need to be alert not to use it if not permitted at their lobby.

(standard rules to be followed for all the lobbies across Indian Railways. Local aberrations like this shall not be permitted.)

 

26.  PRIME Integration

a.       PRIME is a d2k based decentralized system hosted at divisional level.

b.       PRIME fields are not uniform across the railways

c.        CMS reports can be exported to Excel format directly (Facility available only after Stage I) which can then be arranged to suit export to PRIME in soft form.

d.       PF field is available, data to be filled in crew biodata for it to appear in report.

e.        License free Software image is under procurement and will be provided by Feb 2012. This will provide facility for exporting reports to EXCEL format

f.        Railways have been demanding conversion of allowance payable directly into money value. Allowance payable were not being converted into money value till now for following reasons

                                                         i.            Conversion of allowance to money value was not in the scope of originally approved System Requirement Specification (SRS)

                                                        ii.            Calculation of money payable was with Personnel branch.

                                                      iii.            Clearance for incorporating officiating allowance has been given recently.

                                                      iv.            Continuous evolution of Use case specification for Running allowance

                                                       v.            Need for mileage statement based on Use case specification for Running allowance to stabilize.

                                                      vi.            Railways are still paying AMA differently

                                                    vii.            Conversion of mileage statement and over time statement to money value can be taken up only after approval of Use case specification for Running allowance proper authorization from CAO/ FOIS

g.        PRIME is being replaced by a centralized web based system IPAS “Integrated Prime & Afres System”. IT would be prudent to integrate CMS with centralized IPAS subject to approval for converting mileage to money value.

 

26.1. Present status:

 

a.       CMS system provides for generating and downloading following .txt file

                                                         i.            mileage for all crew

                                                        ii.            mileage for LP (SLP, LPP, LPM)

                                                      iii.            mileage for ALP (SALP)

                                                      iv.            mileage for guards

b.       Format of txt file as on date is as under.

c.        File has also been provided with SQL script to directly insert the values in PRIME Database (Oracle)

 

milsumsql Example:

INSERT INTO MILEAGE_SUMMARY_PRIME VALUES('TKD1681','','20090482','201407',1839,4,9,0.0,0,45,1,0,'E','MUKESH KR SRIVASTAVA',206,1839,0,0,0,0,250,80,5,75,3);

 

 

27.  Batch printing

a.       Crew wise, crew run detail for each run (details as per JTR/CTR) as well as non run are available.

b.       Railways are printing the same and sending it to personal department. This document for a crew requires around 4 pages to be printed per crew. Lobbies have been provided with dot matrix printer assuming printing of only monthly mileage summary.

c.        All the reports are also available on Internet (Not requiring FOIS connectivity)

d.       Decision is required if these reports are to be printed and kept in hard copy.

( printing(Printing of crew movement detailsis not recommended to avoid wastage of paper. Facility is available with in CMS to export the data to excel format. Only soft copy of records shall be kept.)

 

28.  Thin Client v/s PC for CMS

 

A.      CMS application is running on  24X7 basis, being used by low skilled staff, requires reliable and simple equipment at user end with least user intervention.

B.      CRIS recommends use of Thin Clients as lobby TSS equipment for the reasons explained below.

1.          Low initial cost

2.          No moving part (Fan less design, no hard disk for better reliability)

3.          Low power consumption

4.          Low memory requirement (ROM instead of Hard drive, being more reliable)

5.          Client software with Highly customized linux OS for

a.                   Low memory requirement

b. Client use restricted to CMS application only

c.                   Preconfigured setting for browser, resolution, printer etc. requiring no user intervention (user is not required to launch the application, do any setting, load drivers etc. User has limited access to change the setting and even if these are disturbed, restarting the machine loads the original setting))

d. Remote management and remote configuration. (Resetting is possible from CRIS)

e. Easy validations while accessing CMS application.

f.                    Less prone to virus attack

 

C.      Following constraints were observed in maintenance of Linux based thin clients

1.          Difficulty in arranging maintenance resources for linux based thin clients

2.          Non availability of license free customized linux OS with client application

3.          Limited supplier for thin client with required client image (Customised linux OS + app)

4.          User wanted to use PC with windows, for the browser based CMS application.

5.          Drivers for BA and Bio devices were readily available for windows.

 

D.      Problems with use of PC

1.          Less reliable due to moving parts like cooling fan and hard drive

2.          More prone to virus attack

3.          Difficulty in remote assistance

4.          Difficulty in validations in accessing CMS through standard browser. (Procurement of windows application by CRIS and access to CMS through CMS client application will resolve issues like validation and further facilitate use of PC.)

 

E.       Practical experiences indicate that restricted environment of thin client provides, is easy to resolve from CRIS. How ever such flexibility may not be there in PC with more open environment. It is difficult to restrict user access in PC

 

F.       CRIS plans for the development of CMS client for Linux OS and Windows in order to address the points outlined in (B) above. Objective was to  have a ready proprietary image of CRIS which can be used at client location.

1.          Customised Linux OS with client application for lobbies using thin client with drivers for BA, Bio Metric and Printers

2.          Application for Windows for lobbies using PC with drivers for BA, Bio Metric and Printers.  Though CRIS preferred use of Thin client with customized OS and application image.

 

G.      The client application shall be with following features (both for Linux as well as windows)

 

1.          Standard customised Linux desk top shall appear at initial set up. Customised Linux OS  shall be hardware neutral i.e. it shall work for Intel / AMD / VIA based client machines.

2.          Client application shall be separate from OS and appear as desktop icon after initial loading. (Both for coustomised Linux, standard linux and windows desktop)

3.          With the launch of client application, the client machine shall be configured as desktop client or kiosk client depending on IP address configured in CMS system, It shall also be possible to configure the client manually (locally) in case of no connection to CMS central server. Remote manual setting option shall also be available.

4.          Once client application is launched, the client machine shall always boot up as configured above, till brought out to desk top (initial set up) through hardware key combination. (say Ctrl + alt +F1)

5.          Client application shall be suitable for

a.       Windows Platform :  Windows 7 / Embedded windows XP / Windows 8 or latest version of Windows to be launched in year 2012

b.       Linux Platform: Customised Linux / Fedora / Red Hat /Ubuntu

6.          Customised Linux OS shall support standard commercially available peripherals like 80 /132 column dot matrix printer / inkjet printer / laser printer / line printer, web cams, scanners, multifunction devices etc.

7.          It should be possible to load drivers locally and even over the network for new standard devices and CMS specific devices like BA equipment, Bio metric devices.

8.          It is expected that drivers for these devices will be available for windows platform from the OEM itself. However, drivers for such devices for Linux need to be developed by the vendor.

9.          Initially drivers for at least two commercially available standard BA devices and two Bio devices are proposed to be provided with the client application.. These drivers shall get loaded through the client application itself. It may be required to develop drivers for Linux for devices of other makes introduced at a later stage.

 

H.      Use of PC shall be preferably be resorted, with windows based CMS client application only, which is available on pen drive.

 

 

29.  Km & time for sending to non run

a.       Crew gets a preconfigured mileage for attending non run duties at outstation.

b.       However there is no provision for transit time for going to non run station. Crew is either in rest or in non run reason and not in transit for non run.

c.        Crew gets allowance once for going to the out station and once for coming back from out station. However if crew is sent from one non run to other without getting back to base station no mileage is paid.

 

30.  Provision for CTR edit option

CTR edit option cannot be provided for following reasons

a.       Mileage calculation procedure runs daily at  fixed schedule (presently at 02.00 hrs), and mileage gets calculated over IR In case edited data requires previous/ subsequent run to change from continuous or discontinuous or vice versa it will disturb the mileage calculation which will give random errors.

b.       Subsequent to each run many tables in data base are updated for other parameters such as rest, progressive hrs, competencies etc. It may not be feasible to apply changes inter related in nature, across the application.

c.        More over further operation / logical decisions has already been committed based on present parameters which can not be undone.

d.       Fortnightly report, OT statement etc. will vary from mileage report data.

(facility to edit run details once saved for the reasons explained above is not recommended).

 

31.  Shunting hrs on enroute stations other than starting and terminating station.

 

a.       Presently Crew at the time of sign OFF can select a station enroute (3rd from starting and last but one) he is required to select shunting enroute and fill the station , shunting order and date, for getting shunt count

b.       Now he can select first or last station and will be required to enter shunting order no and hrs of shunting, for hrs based shunting

c.        A count will be given for each entry in mileage (3rd to last but one station) and shunting mileage @15 km / hr will be given for hrs (hr:min) entered (for starting and terminating station, rounded off as per existing rule)

d.       There is no rule to provide shunting hrs for any station except staring and terminating station in main line working.

 

 

32.  Printing of caution order

 

a.       CMS provides facility to feed the caution order for the division.

b.       Divisional authority feed caution order between two adjacent stations for the section where caution is to be observed.

c.        Caution can also be fed for the same station for caution to be observed within station limits.

d.       Caution order is displayed for the route selected. All sections / stations on the selected route are picked up for display.

e.        ASM also generates CO independently.

f.        Print facility has not been given as Caution order is to be delivered to crew under signature of ASM. Printing of CO through CMS will lead to duplicity and ambiguity.

(Authority for printing of caution order at multiple location being a safety issue is not recommended).

 

 

33.  Sending on non run on the day of sign OFF

 

Present system

requirement

Alternative I

Alternative II

Leave

 

Leave to be granted on the same day if Sign OFF + Rest (12/16 hrs) is before 12:00 hrs

Leave to be granted on the same day if Sign OFF is before 12:00 hrs

Leave to be granted on the next day if Sign OFF + Rest (12/16 hrs) is after 12:00 hrs

Leave to be granted on the next day if Sign OFF is after 12:00 hrs

 

 

Non run other than Leave e.g. Training, Absent, Sick

 

Non Run to be granted from the time of sending to non run subject to sending time > Sign OFF time

NO Change

Non Run to be granted from the time of sending to non run subject to sending time > Sign OFF time

 

                CMS is following alternative I

 

Muster roll

 

if sign OFF on the same day as non run

Status = W / Non Run reason

if sign OFF on the previous day as non run

Status =  Non Run reason

if sign OFF on the same day as non run

Status = W

if sign OFF on the previous day as non run

Status = Non Run reason

 

CMS is following alternative I. (earlier Alternative II was followed)

( Rest period shall not be curtailed for giving leave as it affects safety. Giving extra rest hours is safer.)

 

34.  Time for call serve through SMS during rest hours

 

·         Crew name appears in the availability list if the Train departure time in the Traffic Advice (TA) is after completion of rest of that crew.

·         The SMS for call serve is generated at the time of booking of crew on that TA.

 

 

Alternative I

Alternative II

SMS for call serve can be delivered to crew prior to completion of rest depending upon time of booking.

SMS for call serve shall be delivered only after completion of rest hrs.

 

crew can be booked only on those trains for which train departure time is 2 hrs. after completion of rest as normally two hrs. notice is required for call serve.

 

In this case crew rest time will automatically be extended by 2 hrs. beyond prescribed rest hrs.

 

This will also require that crew shall be booked immediately after being available and no advance booking will be possible

 

(Sending an SMS during rest hrs shall not be treated as disturbance in rest. Rather it facilitates crew to plan better.)

 

35.  Bifurcation of officiating and non officiating mileage

 

Logic for Bifurcating Total Calculated Mileage under none officiating, officiating of type 1 and officiating of type 2.

 

 

Total mileage for officiating of type 1

Footplate km + Officiating Incentive (15% of Footplate Km)

Total mileage for officiating of type 2

Footplate km + Officiating Incentive (15% of Footplate Km)

Total mileage under non officiating

Total calculated mileage - Total mileage for officiating of type 1 - Total mileage for officiating of type 2

 

Example:

 

Cont duty: Working(off1)  + Working(off2)

Cont duty: Working(off1) + Working

Min Guarantee

Min Guarantee

Case I

Crew goes working A – B (90 km)

Rests at B < 1 hr (cont duty) and goes working B – C (140 km)

Mileage :-   90+140 =230

Incentive: -   92(@40%)

Total = 322 km which is > 120 km

Mileage provided = 322 + 13.5(off1) + 21.0(off2) =356.5 km

Mileage under Officiating1 =90 +13.5

                                             = 103.5

Mileage under Officiating2 =140 +21.0

                                             = 161.0

 

Mileage under Non Officiating = 356.4 – 103.5 – 161.0 = 92

Case I

Crew goes working A – B (90 km)

Rests at B < 1 hr (cont duty) and goes working B – C (140 km)

Mileage :-   90+140 =230

Incentive: -   92(@40%)

Total = 322 km which is > 120 km

Mileage provided = 322 +13.5(off1) = 335.5

Mileage under Officiating1 =90 +13.5

                                             =103.5

Mileage under Non Officiating = 335.5

                                             -103.5=232

Case II

Crew goes working A – B (40 km)

Rests at B < 1 hr (cont duty) and goes working B – C (50 km)

Mileage :-   40+50 =90

Incentive: -   0

Total = 90 km which is < 120 km

Mileage provided = 120 + 6.0(off1) + 7.5(off2) =133.5 km

Mileage under Officiating1 =  40 + 6.0

                                             = 46.0

Mileage under Officiating2 =  50 + 7.5

                                             = 57.5

 

Mileage under Non Officiating = 133.5

                                            46.0 – 57.5 = 30

 

Case II

Crew goes working A – B (40 km)

Rests at B < 1 hr (cont duty) and goes working B – C (50 km)

Mileage :-   40+50 =90

Incentive: -   0

Total = 90 km which is < 120 km

Mileage provided = 120 + 6 (off1) =126km

Mileage under Officiating1 =  40 + 6

                                             = 46

Mileage under Non Officiating = 126

                                             -  46 = 80

 

 

Working other then DUTY_TYPE = WR considered as non officiated working for mileage calculation

(Bifurcating min guarantee mileage in the ratio of footplate km is not recommended as it amounts to double advantage.)

37.  Rounding off in continuous run for hours based mileage

 

Alternate I

Alternate II

Rounding off on individual duty hrs

Rounding off after combining duty hrs in continuous run

Case I

Case I

Duty 1: Shunting 5 hrs 20 min

Rest:  50 min (< 1 hour)

Duty 2: Shunting 5 hrs 15 min

Duty 1: Shunting 5 hrs 20 min

Rest:  50 min (< 1 hour)

Duty 2: Shunting 5 hrs 15 min

Mileage 1: (5 hrs 20 min rounded off as 5 hrs) 5 X 15 = 75

Mileage 2: (5 hrs 15 min rounded off as 5 hrs) 5 X 15 = 75

Total Mileage = 75 + 75 = 150

Total Duty hrs = 10 hrs 35 min + 50 min = 11 hrs 25 min

Total Working hrs = 10 hrs 35 min

Rounded off = 11 hrs

Mileage: 11 X 15 = 165

Total Duty hrs; 10 hrs 35 min + 50 min = 11 hrs 25 min

Case II

Case II

Duty 1: Shunting 5 hrs 40 min

Rest:  50 min (< 1 hour)

Duty 2: Shunting 5 hrs 35 min

Duty 1: Shunting 5 hrs 40 min

Rest:  50 min (< 1 hour)

Duty 2: Shunting 5 hrs 35 min

Mileage 1: (5 hrs 40 min rounded off as 6 hrs) 6 X 15 = 90

Mileage 2: (5 hrs 35 min rounded off as 6 hrs) 6 X 15 = 90

Total Mileage = 90 + 90 = 180

Total Duty hrs = 11 hrs 15 min + 50 min = 12 hrs 05 min

Total Duty hrs = 11 hrs 15 min

Rounded off = 11 hrs

Mileage = 11 X 15 = 165

Total Duty hrs; 10 hrs 35 min + 50 min = 11 hrs 25 min

 

                CMS is following alternative I

(Rounding off will introduce one or other type of error whatever scheme is followed. Over a period of time such errors will average out.)

 

38.  Minimum Guarantee Rules

 

38.1.                       User definable hrs. (X’ hrs interval) for declaring a run CONTINUOUS in minimum guarantee section

 

Two runs are treated as CONTINUOUS if time interval from Sign OFF from first run to sign ON of second run is <= 1 hrs. for all types and sections

Present system

requirement

Two successive run on the same min guarantee section with a break of > 1hr (non continuous duty) , minimum guarantee is applicable independently for both the run

Two successive run on the same min guarantee section with a break of > 1hr (X hrs)(non continuous duty) , minimum guarantee is applicable only once

Section A - B  90 km , crew goes working from A to B , rests at B > 1hrs, come back from B - A

Mileage as per Run

A to B = 90 km

Mileage given = 120 km, being minimum gurantee section

Mileage as per Run

B to A = 90 km

Mileage given = 120 km, being minimum gurantee section

TOTAL MILEAGE GIVEN = 240 km

 

Section A - B  90 km , crew goes working from A to B , rests at B > 1hrs, come back from B - A

Mileage as per Run

A to B = 90 km

Mileage given = 120 km, being minimum gurantee section

Mileage as per Run

B to A = 90 km

Mileage given = 120 km, being minimum gurantee section

TOTAL MILEAGE GIVEN = 120 km

 

 

CMS is following Alternative I.

As per some Railways concept of continuous run should not be applicable in case of minimum guarantee section.

 

38.2.                       Special rates for minimum guarantee section (Delhi Area)

 

Delhi follow three tier structure for minimum guarantee section

Section A – B = a km (min guarantee)

Crew goes working A – B

Rests at B < 1 hr (cont duty) and

returns spare B – A or does shunting at B

Mileage A – B = a km

Mileage B – A = b km

 

If

Give

a + b < 80 km

120 km

80 km < a + b < 160 km

160 km

a + b > 160 km

a + b

 

 

38.3.                       Combination of two Continuous run, working + working, in Minimum guarantee section

 

As per RB directive a section may be defined as minimum guarantee section if sections and circumstances do not have potential for running staff to earn adequate kilometerage within stipulated duty hrs.

Cont duty: working + working

Cont duty: Working + working

Alternative I

Alternative II

Apply check to the total mileage

 

Case I

Section A - B = 90 km , (min Guarantee section)

crew goes working A - B ,

rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) come back working B - A

Mileage

A – B = 90 km

B – A = 90 km

Total = 180 km > 120

Mileage given = 180 km, as mileage earned  is more than mileage of  minimum guarantee section

Case I

Section A - B = 90 km , (min Guarantee section)

crew goes working A - B ,

rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) come back working B - A

Mileage

A – B = 90 km

B – A = 90 km

Total = 180 km

Mileage given  = 120 km, being minimum guarantee section

 

Section needs to be redfined

Case II

Section A - B = 40 km ,

crew goes working A - B ,

rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) come back working B - A

Mileage

A – B = 40 km

B – A = 40 km

Total = 80 km < 120

Mileage given  = 120 km, as mileage earned  is less than mileage of  minimum guarantee section

Case II

Section A - B = 40 km ,

crew goes working A - B ,

rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) come back working B - A

Mileage

A – B = 40 km

B – A = 40 km

Total = 80 km

Mileage given  = 120 km, being minimum guarantee section

 

 

CMS is following Alternative I.

 

 

38.4.                       Combination of working + spare, working + shunting in Minimum guarantee section

 

Old System

Present System

In case of continuous run no mileage will be given for Shunting duty / spare duty type (For Freight only) if minimum guarantee is applicable.

In case of continuous duty (such that rest at other station < 1 hrs) spare mileage to be given even  if minimum guarantee applicable

Shunting duty type will have no change

Ref Railway Board letter no E (P&A) II- 85 / FE -4/3 dated 25-05-1985

Case I

Section A - B = 90 km , (min Guarantee section)

crew goes working A - B ,

rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) does shunting at B  for 5 hrs

Mileage

A – B = 90 km

B = 15 X 5 = 75 km

Total = 165 km > 80 and > 160

Mileage given  = 165 km, as mileage earned  is more than mileage of  minimum guarantee section

 

Case II

Section A - B = 40 km ,

crew goes working A - B ,

rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) does shunting at B  for 5 hrs

Mileage

A – B = 40 km

B = 15 X 5 = 75 km

Total = 105 km > 80 but < 160

Mileage given  = 160 km, as mileage earned  is less than mileage of  minimum guarantee section

 

Case III

Section A - B = 40 km ,

crew goes working A - B ,

rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) rests at B < 1hrs (continuous duty) does shunting at B  for 2 hrs

Mileage

A – B = 40 km

B = 15 X 2 = 30 km

Total = 70 km < 80 (and also < 160)

Mileage given  = 120 km, as mileage earned  is less than mileage of  minimum guarantee section

 

CMS proposes to follow Alternative I as default. However divisions can be configured independently for either of alternative.

 

38.5.                       Combination of, working + shunting in Minimum guarantee section, (with shunting at intermediate station and not at originating or terminating station)

 

Requirement of Dhanbad

Section A – B – C = (min guarantee)

A – B = a km

B – C = b km

Crew goes working A – B

Rests at B < 1 hr (cont duty) and

goes spare B - C

Dhanbad interpretation

If spare duty is performed with in the specified minimum guarantee section, spare mileage will not be added over and above minimum mileage, but if spare duty is performed before or after complete run of minimum guarantee section only then spare mileage will be added over and above minimum guarantee mileage.

 

Note: CMS proposes to follow alternative II

Apply Ghat (say type I = 5 times which means Km  + 4 times Km)

20*4 (5-1)=80

Check minimum

170 >120, not applicable

90 <120, hence applicable

200 (120+80)

90 <120, hence applicable

200 (120+80)

Apply incentive

Only on 70 (ghat section km not to be considered) (NIL as < 126)

170 (90 + 80)

On 170 (ghat section km to be considered) (30% as 150<176<200

251 (200 +51)

On 200 (ghat section km to be considered) (40% as 176<200

280 (200 + 80)

 

Note: CMS follows alternative I with minimum check is applied after incentive (CKP wants alternative III)

It may be noted that if the order for application of various weightage is changed the mileage will also change. This is self evident from various examples in the document. Many iossues are result of different scheme being followed by different Railway.

(Uniform scheme shall be followed across the Railway for uniformity in mileage calculation.)
