MC 8/2002

Various instructions relating to Apprentices Act 1961 and training of Apprentices have been issued since the issue of Master Circular on Apprentices Act 1961, circulated vide Board’s letter No.E(MPP)90/6/5 dated 31.10.90. It has now been decided that these instructions may be compiled at one place and a revised Master Circular may be made available for the benefit of all.

1.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        General

The Apprentices Act, 1961 was enacted by the Government on 12.12.61, to regulate and control the training of apprentices in certain designated trades, with the object of getting adequate manpower trained in Industrial Skills for the developing industries in the country. The provisions of the Act were implemented on the Railways in August 1963. The obligation under the Act on the part of Railways is to provide training only and not to absorb the trained apprentices.

(Ref. Board’s letter No. E(Trg.)61TR1/42 dated 29.8.63)

2.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Extent of application of the Act.

2.1 The provisions of the Act apply on the Railways to the workshops of the Civil, Mechanical and S&T Engineering Departments, Production Units, Diesel and Electric Loco Sheds, Carriage and Wagon Depot and Electrification Projects.

2.2 No engagement should be undertaken in the units where large number of surplus already exist e.g. Printing Presses, Mechanical workshops and Signal Workshops, etc.

2.3 Wherever the number of apprentices to be engaged is too small and training facilities are insufficient, efforts may be made to suitably adjust the seats allocated in other major establishments.

[Ref. Board’s letters No. E(Trg.)75(33)/15 dated 16.10.75 
and
E(Trg.)80/(33)/6 dated 12.9.1981

3.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Number to be engaged for training

3.1 Ministry of Labour have been repeatedly bringing to the notice of the Board that the number of apprentices being trained in Railway Establishments is significantly lower than the seats allocated by the Regional Directors of Apprenticeship Training. It was brought to the notice of the Ministry of Labour that Railways are undergoing changes in technology, resulting in significantly reduced activities in certain trades even though significant number of artisans in these trades may still be on roll. It was also brought to the notice of Ministry of Labour that the existing training facilities on the Railways also have the responsibility of re-training the surplus staff and this causes limitation to Railways’ capability of training stipulated number of Apprentices under the Apprenticeship Act. It was decided to have joint surveys conducted by the respective Regional Directors of Apprenticeship Training with the incharges of Railway Establishments.

(E(MPP)90/6/7 dated 29.11.95)

3.2 Following are the salient features to be borne in mind regarding joint surveys:-

3.2.1 Railway should ensure that only those designated trades are included in the survey, which have a potential for future recruitment/absorption. (This is important in the light of Hon’ble Supreme Court’s judgement in the case of UP State Road Transport Corporation Vs. UP Berozgar Samiti.)

3.2.2 The survey should be based on the skilled strength only and should not include unskilled workers/supervisors.

3.2.3 In the Division, unit of activity for engagement of apprentices should be Diesel Sheds, Electrical Loco Sheds, C&W Depots, etc. where there is a large concentration of staff i.e.500 and more.

3.2.4 The total number of surplus staff available in a particular unit may also be kept in mind while fixing the quota. (Training of surplus staff through conversion courses may restrict the Unit’s training capacity of Act Apprentices.)

3.2.5 Joint Survey Reports and figures relating to quota fixing should be jointly signed by functionary not lower than Dy.CME or equivalent on the Railways and Dy.Director or equivalent from the side of the RDATs.
