No fresh appointments: Railways to end colonial-era khalasi system


PTI, Aug 7, 2020, 10:12 AM IST

New Delhi: The Railways is set to end a colonial-era practice of appointing khalasis or ”bungalow peons” who worked at the residences of senior officials, following an order from the Railway Board barring any new appointment to the post.

In an order issued on August 6, the Railway Board has said that the issue regarding telephone attendant-cum-dak khalasis (TADKs) is under review.

“The issue regarding the appointment of TADK is under review in Railway Board. It has, therefore, been decided that any appointment of fresh face substitutes as TADK should not either be processed or made with immediate effect,” the order said.

“Further, all cases approved for such appointments since 1st July 2020 may be reviewed and position advised to Board. This may be complied with strictly in all Railway establishments,” it further added.
