periodic transfer orders of its employees stationed on important and sensitive posts and delay them until September 30, 2021, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The Railway Board, according to the letter, again reviewed the periodic transfer on the request of both the railway associations - All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIFR) and National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR). The apex railway body has now decided to keep the periodic transfer orders of crucial employees pending until December 30, 2021.
The onslaught of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020 had forced the national transporter to shut its operations for passenger trains for several months. The Railways gradually started getting back on track in the second half of the year. However, the deadlier second wave in April this year hampered its prospects again, though the Railways did not shut operations during the second pandemic bout.
