E-Pass Facility for Railway Employees
Indian Railway launched (13.08.2020) the E-pass module of the Human Resource Management System (HRMS) developed by CRIS for online pass generation and ticket booking by railway employees, Railway announced via Press release. The E-Pass module has been developed by CRIS under the HRMS project and will be rolled out over Indian Railways in a phased manner. With this facility, Railway employee is neither supposed to come to the office for applying for Pass nor has to wait for the pass being issued. The employee will be able to apply for a pass online from anywhere and get the E-Pass generated online. The complete process of application and generation of Pass is mobile friendly. Ticket booking on pass may also be done online on the IRCTC site apart from the earlier facility of counter booking from the PRS/UTS counter.
Railway officials need to travel across distances for official work. This will boost the operational efficiency of officials. This facility will help Railway employees in using their pass hassle-free and simultaneously make the working of all officials involved in the issuance of Pass smooth.
HRMS project is a comprehensive plan for the digitization of the complete HR process of the Indian Railway. A total of 21 modules has been planned in HRMS. Basic data entry of around 97% of railway employees has been completed in Employee master and E-Service record modules of HRMS which had been launched last year. CRIS is also going to launch the Office order module and settlement modules of HRMS very shortly.
