With regard to the request forwarded by All India Train Controllers Association and All India Guard Council to call them for the aforesaid meeting, it is state that this Ministry is of the view that the request may not be acceded to as both associations are un-recognized and acceding such request will result in similar demands from large number of un-recognized associations in Ministry of Railways. It is also stated that All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF) and National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR) are only two recognized federations of Indian Railways.
