The All-India Train Controllers’ Association has warned of an agitation if their various demands, including re-fixing the staff pattern, are not addressed by the management.

Association office-bearers told mediapersons here on the sidelines of the national executive meeting that the controllers were denied proper off days.

Providing adequate infrastructure, better pay, perks and promotions at par with Air Traffic Controllers, stress allowance are among the other demands.

National president Rajesh Singh presided over thetwo-day meeting attended by 32 national executive committee members and 60 members from 16 zones and 45 divisions of Indian Railways.
