Date: 23rd July, 2021
Shri Uddhav Thackeray Ji
Hon’ble Chief Minister of Maharashtra
Sub: Permission to travel by local railway in Mumbai for:
1. Bank officials of Co-op/ Private Banks and its supporting service providers
2. All those who have taken both doses of Vaccine
Our previous letter dated 17/05/2021, 02/06/2021, 01/07/2021 Break the Chain order dated 30/05/2021
Very much regret to note that our earlier request, the subject has not been considered till date.
As you very well know that Local Railway is backbone for every working citizen in Mumbai. Not allowing them in trains for a long time in Mumbai will have an indirect impact on the growth of Economy not only in Mumbai but in our entire country, as Mumbai is the Financial capital of India. Majority of Mumbaikars have lost their source of income due to lack of affordable transport services (Local Railway services) for long distance, as alternate means of transport cost for the same distance have comparatively higher costs which is not affordable by many Mumbaikars.
We refer to advisory on 2nd lockdown by State Govt issued on allowing to commute by local railway to the Govt staff and essential service suppliers and nationalised bank employees but unfortunately, it does not include
1. Bank’s staff of co-op banks and private banks
2. CA office staff visiting all types of banks for audit purposes and other ancilliary service providers. We fail to understand the reason for discriminating between Natioanlised Banks and Co-op/Pvt Banks, while all provide same type of essential services even though same were allowerd during 1st
In Mumbai, it is costly and time consuming for such staffs, to travel long distance by other modes. Union Hon‘ble Ministry of Finance had also directed all State Govts to ensure smooth movement of Bankers/ Supportive staff.
State Govt had made it clear in earlier order that Essential to Essential is Essential itself implies that
Nationalised/ Co-op/ Pvt Banks and their supportive service providers be considered at par.
Union Hon’ble Minister of State for Railways, Shri Raosaheb Danve Patil ji has also confirmed that Central Government is prepared to commence Local Railway, but very much awaiting for State Govt’s green signal.
Not allowing Travel by local train has damaged all mumbaikars, financially and made many starving
We request you to allow co-op bank/ private bank staff and CA office staff for all types of bank audit purpose and other ancilliary service providers to commute by local railways
We also request you also to allow to travel all who have taken 2 doses of vaccines.
Awaits your prompt action.
