Sub: Classification of Trains as high Speed Trains for the purpose of Trip Allowance (PNM/NFIR item No.7/2012).
Ref : Railway Board’s letters No. E(P&A)II/87/FE-2/1 dated 24.06.1991, 28.07.1992, and 02.11.1993.
A PNM/NFIR meeting was held on 16.10.2017 and in the item No. 7/2012 it was decided that Duronto Trains, which can be classified as ‘High Speed Trains’, may be included for payment of Trip Allowance to the Running Staff. GS/AIRF was also consulted in the matter. Consequently, a fresh review was undertaken by the Board with reference to classifying Duronto Trains as ‘High Speed Trains’ for the purpose of Trip Allowance. Accordingly, in partial modification to Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II/87/FE-2/1 dated 24.06.1991 the following trains have also been determined as ‘High Speed Trains’ for regulating Trip Allowance to their crew, at specified rates. Co-drivers may also be provided on these trains keeping with the extant instructions.
