Yes, trainee are eligible for PTO.


See Rly. Bd's order No. RBE No.171/2006, Circulated under L.No.E(W)2006PS5-1/27
Dated 22.11.2006, Pare No.2.
There is no quota for pass holders in trains(except Rajadhani/Shatabdi) whether it is duty pass
or Privilage). They have to book in the general quota only.

first class pass holder can take attendent in pto when employer travels in higher class(1a,2a,fc)
and attendent in sleeper class.
secondly if train is going on longer route to a destination beyond 15% u can give reservation
upto the destination not giving any break journey.
e.g. andman express goes from cape -jat via mas, bza, ndls much longr then konkan railway route
so u can book tkt ex cape-jat
any pass taken on any route with specific via point then u cant calculate 15 % and give
reservation .
If you lost the pass you have to inform the pass issuing authority and pay the
required fee. But there is no provision of duplicate issue of pass.
now i am getting first class pass as my GP is 4200.what will be my eligibility for pass
if i have gone on mutual transfer in lower grade of GP 1900?
New pass Rules is entirely based on GP. As such you will get pass based new GP.
That is one 3AC pass and two second class pass.
I have completed my 5 years of service on 20-11-2012. Will you tell me whether i will get the
remaining 2 sets of pass and PTOs in the remaining fraction of year.
Yes, you can avail 2 sets remaining now.
Unfortunately your babu is correct and there is no rule to take your pension into account for
pass eligibility. New pass Rules are very clear that Pass eligibility is solely based on the GP of
the employee concerned.
is journey is allowed in Duranto Trains by a first class pass holding Gr C employee.
Privilege pass not allowed. On duty permitted.

All railway employees are entitled for at least one set of 3 AC pass. Nowhere in the pass
rules there is a division between 5 year completed and other employee with regard to
pass class.
Now a babu in in your office reject the pass , you have to complain. Write your
complaint in the Grievance register. Ask this Babu to show the rule which says that you
are not eligible for 3 AC. New pass rules class of eligibility is based on GP , not on your
length of service.
