 Resist flooding /gushing Railway Privatisation offensives

STATE LEVEL CONVENTION
MEMORIAL HALL,CHENNAI, 23-8-2017, 10 AM

First passenger train was run between Mumbai and Thane on 16th April 1853. It has been established that the first goods train was run between Chindadripet and Redhills in 1836 named Redhills Railway.
The early construction and operation of Railways were by private. But they did not come without guarantee. Govt guaranteed 5% return on the investment. It was proved that the private inflated their investment and availed the guaranteed amount. Since private did not show interest to expand rail network govt started laying rail network. It was found that loss was nationalised and profit was privatised. Finally therefore British Indian govt nationalised Railways between 1924 and 1944.
After Independence Indian National govt evolved a policy that “Railway Transport” will be with the govt. During 1990s when globalisation started it was gradually liquidated, Construction, Maintenance, Catering, Cleaning works were outsourced. In 2009 UPA II govt gave an interpretation to “Railway transport” which should be with govt. According to it “only railway operation” will remain with the govt. Other activities like design, finance, construction, maintenance, cleaning, catering can go to private. It was therefore, even perennial activities were opened for outsourcing. Even activities inside the workshops and production Units, where Factories Act is in operation, and in sheds were open for outsourcing. Contract workers have started to work by the side of permanent workers. Now entire construction activities, signal and telecommunication erection and maintenance, major portion of the track maintenance, some parts of coach, wagon and engine maintenance, catering, cleaning and house keeping on board the trains and cleaning at stations, yards, workshops, sheds and production units have been outsourced. Entire renewal work with new technology in Coaches, wagons, engines and trains have been outsourced.
Power to the coaches are provided by the power car in the trains. These power cars have been outsourced. Modernisation of coaches with Bio Toilets, central Buffer Coupling have been oursourced. Watering of Coaches is outsourced. Teachers, para medical staff, Doctors are on contract. Entire wagon production has been privatised.In all E class stations ticket booking clerk is contract worker.Both reserved and unreserved tickets are now sold by private in jansadharan counters and yatri ticket sevak kendras.
Those workers engaged in outsourcing areas are without minimum wage, out of the purview of labour laws including WCA. Mostly they remain unprotected by a trade union.Employees on rolls has come down from 16.54 lakhs in 1990 to 13.36 lakhs in 2016.About 7 lakh contract workers have replaced regular workers.
In continuation of this relaxed Policy 8 Railway Lines have been reconstructed under PPP. private including Adhani are participating in these lines. But operation lies with the Indian Railways.
Container Corporation is a public sector mini rathna Corporation of Indian Railways. It maintains container Depots and runs container trains. During Lalu period 15 private operators were allowed to have container trains which run along with those of CONCOR. Now private goods trains have been allowed by Modi Govt. But the operation of these trains remain with Indian Railways. IRCTC is running some tourist trains. The operation of all these is by Indian Railway. This means they are driven by Railway Drivers.
Modi govt announced a policy on 22.08.2014 that operation also will be allowed for private. On 27.08.2014 it decided to allow 100% FDI in almost all areas of Railway activities. Consequently an FDI Alstom Company has been given the electric engine factory in Madhepura and General Electric Company has been given Diesel Engine Factory at Marhora, both in Bihar.Entire wagon production has already been privatised. The other production units and railway hospitals are in the pipeline for privatisation.
BJP invited private to lay rails and run trains. Though they were assured 80% returns no private either domestic or foreign come forward.
It is why BJP govt has decided to allow private in the existing track. Indian Railways was nationalised by pardeshi;now privatised by swadeshi.
It has started implementing Bibek Debroy report. As a first step Modi govt has merged the railway budget with the General Budget. As a second step its cabinet has approved appointment of Rail Development Authority by an executive order before August 31, 2017. The Debroy had recommended to appoint RDA by amending the Railways Act,
The RDA will allow private operators either domestic or foreign to operate private goods and passenger trains in the existing track. They will also be allowed to operate goods trains in the new dedicated freight corridors. Adhanis and Alstoms will operate trains.Private Drivers and ticket examiners and ticket booking clerks will be there.
The private operators will be given level playing field. That means they will be given half of the present trains immediately. Time Table, fare and freight will be decided by the Authority. The Fare and freight will be cost based. At present Railway charges tickets only to the tune of 53% of the cost. 47% is subsidised by the railways from goods traffic. The freight is charged 163% of the cost. From this excess income passenger loss is subsidised. If the fare of the trains is to be decided based on the cost, immediately the fare will be doubled. Modi govt will not subsidise the loss if fare is fixed with subsidy. We all know Modi govt is already eliminating all the subsidies.
To cope up with this policy Modi Govt has decided to corporatize 407 A 1 and A class Stations. To start with tender has been floated for 23 stations in Indian Railways. Chennai Central and Calicut Stations are in the first list.
Electrical maintenance, parking, commercial establishments will come under the complete Management. They want to allow them to sell platform ticket. They also want that Railway should not impose any price control on the commodities to be sold in the commercial establishments.
As a result fares will become astronomical in the trains and stations. They will become on par with Airports. People will boycott the trains. The private will close the lines and stop running trains as making loss.
Railwaymen will be rendered surplus in large clusters. Indian Railways finance will become unmanageable. It will lead to problems in paying salary and pension. Air India is the example. In Argentina Railway was handed over to Alstom, an MNC. In course of time they closed many lines . In the end there was only 8000 KM line left out of 47000 KM. Out of 95000 employees only 15000 remained. Vital transport was destructed. People’s employment destroyed.
The Vikas purush Modi wants only destruction of Railways.
Railway pension has already been privatised by introducing new pension system.There are at present 6.53 lakh employees covered by new pension system.This is almost 50% of staff on rolls.Modi government has rejected the demand for scrapping the new pension system and has rejected even the demand for guaranteed minimum pension on par with Atal Pension Yojana.It has not honoured its commitment to central government employees for increased minimum wage and fitment formula.They deferred their indefinite strike on the commitment given by the government.There is no improvement in the house rent allowance rates recommended by the 7th cpc.Rates prevailing during 6th cpc have been reduced.Arrears of allowances have been denied.
In this context the Railwaymen and the people of India should join together to fight this gushing privatisation offensives. In Chennai at memorial hall at 10 am on 23-8-2017 a convention has been convened by all railway trade unions.Please attend enmasse.
