This first publication is based on review and in depth analysis of financial powers delegated to
enable quick decision making.

The Schedule of Powers is an important document, delegating the powers delegated to officers
of this Railway.

I acknowledge the hard work and sincere efforts of officers and staff in preparing this document
and sincerely hope that this will accelerate and streamline administrative decision making on
this railway.

A CD with date has also been issued covering the schedule of powers with a view to reduce the
paper work. A copy of the same would also be pasted on the NWR's Website http://10.141.2.19,
which can be accessed by all officials of NWR. An attempt would be made to keep it up to date
by posting all the correction slips on quarterly basis so that an up-dated version of this Schedule
of Powers is always available for reference.

                                        PREFACE


1.   The delegation of powers made in this SOP, is in exercise of the powers conferred on the
     General Manager, as per Railway Board's letter No. F(X)II-2001/PW/6 dated 09.05.2001,
     Annexure II of Chapter-V of the Indian Finance Code Vol-I, and other Codes, Manuals
     as well as Orders issued by Railway Board from time to time.

2.   Officers and officials at various levels can sanction expenditure or issue orders as
     delegated in this schedule subject to the observance of cannons of financial property and
     provisions of various Codes, Rules and Regulations from time to time.

3.   No officer is empowered, except in emergency, to suspend the exercise of or to withdraw
     the powers to his subordinates to whom powers have been delegated in this Schedule. If
     at the field level, curtailment of the powers, delegated to the officers is considered
     necessary, the same should be done after clearance from the headquarters' office.

4.   Amendments: Amendments to the Schedule of Powers will be issued in the form of
     correction Slips, and will be numbered serially, part-wise and dated. The Number, date
     and other particulars of each correction slip, as received, should be entered at the end of
     this booklet and the same should be carried out immediately or the correction slip pasted
     at the appropriate place. The officers responsible for maintaining the Schedule of
     Powers up-to-date will initial his signature against such entry in the register of correction
     slips. If a correction slip is received, out of sequence, the missing intermediate serial
     number or numbers should be called for from the supervisor of the official concerned.
     As a further check, the number of the last correction slip issued will be printed in the
     first issue each month of the bi-monthly gazette of North Western Railway. Correction
     Slip will be issued to each official to whom a copy of Schedule of Powers is supplied and
     it will be his responsibility to see that the Schedule of Powers supplied is maintained up-
     to-date.

5.   Except where specifically indicated, all powers having financial implications shall be
     exercised with prior finance concurrence.

6.   Wherever monetary limit on delegations "up to" is specified, it means the powers
     delegated are up to and inclusive of that monetary limit.

7.   Suggestions for modification of Schedule of Powers to enable work to be done more
     expeditiously or efficiently are welcome. Such reference should be addressed to DGM
     (G) through the normal official channels.

8.   Notwithstanding, whatever has been said above, in case Railway Board amends certain
     powers as delegated to General Manager based on Railway Board's letter mentioned in
     Para 1 above, the same would become applicable immediately, irrespective of fact,
     whether the correction slip is issued or not.

                                               III
9.    All    Powers     specified herein     shall   be    exercised   subject    to    the
      procedures/conditions/manner specified in the Codal Provisions and other instructions
      issued from time to time.

10.   The delegations of Powers to various tiers of administration are limited to their
      administrative jurisdiction.

11.   Superior authorities shall also be competent to exercise the Powers delegated to lower
      authority in the administrative hierarchy.

12.   The Powers specified herein will be identified by prefixing the phrases SOP (A) to the Sl.
