Grave Injustice done by successive Pay Commissions to the category of Junior Engineers and Senior Engineers in Railways – NFIR

No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)20l7/R.B.-Part II

Dated: 19/02/2018

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grave injustice done by successive Pay Commissions to the category of Junior Engineers and Senior Engineers in Railways-growing dissatisfaction, discontentment and frustration among Technical Supervisors – kind intervention requested.

The Junior Engineers and Senior Section Engineers in the Railways are field level Supervisors whose contribution for safe and efficient running of the system has been very significant. These Engineers ensure quality and efficiency in the course of performing their duties on Open Line/Construction and as well in Workshops/Production Units. Unfortunately, this core section of Supervisors has not been looked after matching with their duties and responsibilities over a period of time, consequently their pay structure as on date, got relegated to two levels only i.e. Pay Level 6 & 7 (7th CPC).

An honest review into the pay structure existed decades back for these Supervisory Staff and fair comparison with that of 5th, 6th & 7th CPC Pay Structures would establish the truth that these vital field leaders have been subjected to grave injustice, which led to deep sense of frustration among them. The following table reveals how the Junior Engineers and Senior Section Engineers have been put to perpetual injustice not only by the Pay Commissions but also at the hands of Ministry of Railways.

3rd-pay-commission-4th-pay-commission-pay-scale

5th-pay-commission-6th-pay-commission-pay-scale

 7th-pay-commission-pay-scale

 

 NFIR has been fighting for the cause of this neglected category at all fora, demanding review and justice. Though in the year 2006, the Railway Board had agreed for upgradation of 15% apex level Group ‘C’ posts to Group ‘B’ Gazetted, for facilitating promotion-of Senior Supervisors and written commitment was also given by the full Board on 7th February 2014, but sadly till date no positive results have emerged.

Railway Board have also given incorrect picture to the 7th CPC stating that these Engineers get promoted from one grade to the other on completion of every four years service. This incorrect position led the VIIth CPC not to recommend appropriate improved pay structure.

It is disheartening to mention that those technocrats recruited from Open Market through RRBs as Sr. Section Engineer (GP 4600 of 6th CPC/Level 7 of 7th CPC) have no career growth at all, due to non-provision of higher pay levels in the cadre structure, with tie result large percentage of these Engineers stagnated. In this context, NFIR brings to the kind notice of CRB that during 3rd CPC period the apex pay scale of Rs. 840-1040 & 840-1200 was allotted to the Technical Supervisors and these scales were higher than the pay scale of Group ‘B’ Gazetted Officer, but sadly the said position got demolished, causing demoralizing effect on Technical Supervisors who are the core Supervisory force accountable for safety, efficiency, punctuality and productivity.

NFIR has already taken up this issue through its PNM agenda given to Railway Board on 4th January, 2018, while the related subject raised by the Federation is also pending in the Departmental Anomaly Committee (DAC). A copy of NFIR’s PNM Agenda Item No.03 is enclosed for kind perusal.

Incidentally, NFIR also brings to the kind notice of CRB that in the General Managers Conference held at Rail Bhavan on 1lth January, 2010, the General Secretary, NFIR had pointed out to the Hon’ble Railway Minister, the miserable plight of Track Maintainers with no carrer growth at all for them, as a result of implementation of 6th CPC Pay Structure whereby, 94% of Track Maintainers got placed in Recruitment Grade Pay 1800/- while only 6% were placed in Gp 1900/- (benefit of Rs.100/- only p.m. on promotion). The Federation also explained to the Hon’ble Railway Minister in the GMs Conference that vast percentage of Track Maintainers retire/die in the recruitment Grade Pay itself. Responding to NFIR’s point, the Hon’ble Railway Minister had directed the Railway Board to constitute a Joint Committee to examine and propose special package.

The Committee met and reviewed the Track Maintainers cadre structure viz-a-viz working and service conditions and given its report to the Railway Ministry. After having considered the said report, the Railway Ministry had decided to grant cadre restructuring to this category, duly introducing new grade pay GP 2400/- and 2800/- respectively. This decision was taken by the Railway Ministry independently, without approaching Ministry of Finance.

In the case of JEs/SSEs, NFIR strongly feels that total revamping of cadre structure is the need of the hour,considering multifarious duties being performed by the Supervisors who are also buffers in between the management and workers at grass root level. Though the Hon’ble Railway Minister had sought approval of Finance Ministry for placement of 75% of posts of GP 4600/- in GP 4800/- Pay Level 8, there has been no positive result till date. This reveals that the Railway Ministry has failed to deliver justice to these unfortunate Engineers who are the backbone of the system and contributing for improved efficiency of the Railways. It may also be noted that the duty hours of these staff are unlimited, while they shoulder “stores/Materials” responsibilities in addition to their field duties and establishment matters.

In order to mitigate the problems and ensure justice to JEs/SSEs of Indian Railways, NFIR requests the Railway Board (CRB) to kindly get examined the Pay Structure of JEs/SSEs denovo, taking into account the cadre structure from 3rd CPC and onwards for the purpose of granting revised cadre structure. In this context, NFIR proposes the following for early consideration and approval.

7thCPC-grade-pay

Federation hopes that the Railway Board (CRB) would kindly give personal attention to this issue, so as to mitigate the injustice caused to JEs/SSEs of Indian Railways.

DA/As above

Yours Faithfully,
(Dr.Raghavaiah)

General Secretary

7.7.13 Drivers in the Defence (Civilian) sector have voiced the demand that they drive specialized heavy vehicles, and the minimum age requirement for acquiring a driving license for these vehicles is 22 years, as opposed to 18 years for a general license. They also contend that they physically more strenuous and technically more complicated functions, and therefore they should be compensated better.

Analysis and Recommendations

7.7.14. The general hierarchy in the cadre of drivers is as given in the table below:

7th-CPC-EPD-CADRE

7.7.15 The Commission observes that career progression is adequate. In any case, since MACP is also allowed to drivers, the operation of such percentages is really of not much significance as pay up gradation through MACP ensures that no one stagnates beyond a stipulated period. The Commission therefore recommends replacement pay levels for them.

7.7.16 As regards creation of posts such as Motor Transport Officer, Transport Supervisor in the gazetted rank, the Commission is not making any recommendation to this effect, as creation of supervisory post depends on the cadre strength and functional justification in each ministry/department.

7.7.17 Regarding Drivers in the Defence (Civilian) sector, the Commission is of the view that the government may consider placing such drivers in a distinct category with differentiating features which would include more stringent qualifying criteria and clear job description bring out the higher responsibility and skills. The government should decide which of the  drivers fall in this category and accordingly modify their recruitment rules, harmonies their entry requirements and designate them on similar lines.

Electronic Data Processing (EDP) Staff

7.7.18 Government of India, over the last few decades, has gone in for computerisation in a big way. While some departments ventured ahead in the 1960s itself, by the 1980s the deployment was widespread. In the initial years the policy thrust was on creating “Management Information Systems (MIS)” and “Decision Support Systems (DSS)” for development, planning and responsive administration government. These have been the genesis of the present day e-Governance.

7.7.19 The entry pay of EDP staff is in the GP 2400 with minimum qualification  of Class XII with science and maths. The hierarchy reaches up to the level of Director in the GP 8700.Different levels in the hierarchy are filled through both promotion and direct recruitment (DR),  with requirements of minimum qualification for DR going up to Bachelors’ and Masters’ in Computer Applications.

7.7.20 The Associations of EDP staff have demanded a full-fledged All India EDP Service cadre for Group ‘A’ posts along with subordinate service cadre on the lines of the Indian Economic Service and Indian Statistical Service, to maintain uniform grade structure and improve career advancement. They have demanded making NIC their nodal agency and Department of Information Technology their cadre controlling authority. A demand has also been made to implement the Modified Flexible Complementing Scheme (MFCS) for these employees.

Analysis and Recommendations

7.7.21 The Commission has noted that EDP staff are spread across several ministries. In 2014 DoPT has notified the Model Recruitment Rules for various EDP posts. This notification states that ministries/departments may review their extant RRs and modify these in accordance will the Model Recruitment Rules. The notified hierarchy is given below:

Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways

Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways

NFIR

No. II/94/Part I

Dated: 16/02/2018

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Recruitment of candidates from Open Market in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC against 20% vacancies reserved for Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s instructions contained in RBE No. 71/2016 dated 21/06/2017 & RBE No. 34/2017 dated 12/04/2017.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/94/Part I dated 17/07/2017 to Board (CRB).
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)II/2016/RR-1/8 dated 12/08/2017.

Kind attention is invited to the instructions issued by the Railway Board vide RBE No. 71/2016 dated 21/06/2017 and 34/2017 dated 12/04/2017 wherein decision has been taken to reserve 20% vacancies against direct recruitment quota in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC pay matrix from amongst Course Completed Act Apprentices trained by the Railways.

In this connection, Federation has come across the Centralized Employment No. CEN 02/2018 (published on 10/02/2018 and Closing date 12/03/2018) wherein the Course Completed Act Apprentice trained in Railway establishments have been allowed to compete along with other outside candidates (Para 12.0 of the notification may be seen) for which respective RRBs have been entrusted the job to recruit the candidates for the Zones to which the requirement is to be catered for. In this connection, Federation conveys that this process is time consuming and the designated RRBs are likely to take more than six months to finalize the panels. The Zonal Railways on receipt of the panels will take further period of about 2-3 months to get the selected and empanelled candidates medically examined for issuing posting orders.

In order to ensure quick availability of candidates, Federation suggests that the quota of 20% vacancies in respect of Railway Act Apprentices may be allowed to be filled by the Zonal Railways directly without linking to RRB/RRC recruitment process.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board (CRB) to kindly arrange to review the matter and see that instructions to the General Managers are issued for inducting Course Completed Act Apprentices to the extant of 20% vacancies in Pay Level-1 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix without linking to the recruitment process conducted by RRBs/RRCs.

Federation may kindly be kept advised of the action taken in the matter.

 

Yours faithfully,
S/d,

7th Pay Commission Minimum Pay Calculation: Comparison of Methodology for calculation of minimum Pay of Central Government and a few State Governments as on 1/7/2017

7th Pay Commission Minimum Pay Calculation: Comparison of Methodology for calculation of minimum Pay of Central Government and a few State Governments as on 1/7/2017

7th-Pay-Commission-Minimum-Pay-Calculation

Comparison of Minimum Pay

Comparison of Minimum Pay of Central Government and a few State Governments as on 1/7/2017.

Pay Commission Objective: It is the endeavour of every pay commission to ensure that the pay and allowances of employees should be ‘fair and reasonable’. The pay structure should also motivate the employees to reasonable levels of performance in the tasks assigned to them, so that the general public derive the benefit of their service as intended.

7th CPC of Central Government: The Central Government has been following the practice of pay revision for employees once in ten years. Pay scales of the Central government employees have been revised with effect from 1.1.2016 based on the report of the Seventh Central Pay Commission. The revised minimum pay effective from 01.01.2016 is 2.57 times the pre-revised basic pay. The minimum pay of the central employees has been worked out at Rs.18,000/- per month and represents a real increase of 14.29% of the pre-revised wages. The multiplication factor adopted for revising all the other scales ranges between 2.57 and 2.72 resulting in maximum pay of Rs.2,05,400 corresponding to the highest pre-revised pay scale other than the apex pay scale of Rs.80,000 which is raised to Rs.2,25,000. The Cabinet Secretary’s pay is fixed at Rs.2,50,000.

Employees Associations (Staff side JCM) have also sought minimum pay revision to Rs.26,000 with effect from 01.01.2016.

Pay Revision of various State Governments

Government of Kerala Pay Scales: The revised pay structure introduced by the Government of Kerala witheffect from 1.7.2014 is based on the recommendations of the 10th PayRevision Commission and relates to index level of 239.92 points ofAIACPI (IW). Basic Pay of Group “D” employee is fixed at Rs 16500/-

The rates of increment range from Rs.500 to Rs.2,400. The payment of DA formula is unaltered and continues to be as per the central government formula to neutralise the price rise over and above the 239.92 points twice in a year.

Andhra Pradesh Pay Scales: The revised pay structure formulated by Government of Andhra Pradeshon the basis of the recommendation of 10th Pay Revision Commissionrelates to index level of 220.61 points of AIACPI (IW), Basic Pay of Group “D” employee is fixed at Rs 13000/-

The HRA ranges from 30% to 12% of basic pay subject to a maximum of Rs.20,000 depending upon the classification of places and pay.

Karnataka Pay Scales: The revised pay structure formulated by Government of Karnataka on the basis of the recommendation of 6th Pay Revision Commission relates to index level of 276.9 of AIACPI (IW).

Costs of consumable items obtained from the Department of Economics & Statistics, Government of Karnataka are utilised for their calculation.

CLICK HERE FOR REPORT 
http://www.finance.kar.nic.in/6thPay/6thPayComReport.pdf

(For English version read from page number 135 on wards)

The 6th pay commission appointed by the Karnataka Government recommended a 30% increase in the salaries of around 5,20,000 government employees and 73,000 employees from “aided institutions”.

The revision of pay and pension is to come into effect from 1 July 2017 with benefits paid from 1 April 2018. The Group “D” minimum basic pay is fixed at Rs 17000/-.

Methodology for calculation of minimum wage adopted by Pay commissions both Central and State Pay Commissions

Central pay commissions as well as pay commissions in some states have adopted the approach of determining the minimum pay for employees based on the cost of a minimum acceptable standard of living for a household. This is calculated on the basis of the current prices of daily necessities like food, clothing, housing, etc., for a family of three consumption units typical in the case of young employees starting their careers in government. The normative consumption requirements of the family as adopted in the 15th Indian Labour Conference in 1957 are considered for this purpose. While the minimum pay is thus worked out on the basis of a set of quantitative norms and based on Dr. Wallace Aykroyd’s formula , the maximum pay for employees at the highest levels is to be determined as that required to attract and retain persons of qualifications and skills appropriate for the higher positions in government services.

Comparative picture of pay of Central Government and State Government in regards to minimum wage as on 1.7.2017

Govt. of India
Group “C” Min Basic Pay =Rs 18000/-
DA 5% = Rs 900/-
Total Basic Pay + DA =Rs 18900/-

Andhra Pradesh & Telangana
Group “D” Min Basic Pay =Rs 13000/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% =Rs 3250-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay = Rs 16250/-
DA @ 24.1% = 3916/-
Total Basic Pay + DA=Rs 20166/-

Kerala
Group “D” Min Basic Pay =Rs 16500/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% Rs 4125/-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay =Rs 20625/-
DA @ 14% = 2887/-
Total Basic Pay + DA= Rs 23512/-

Karnataka
Group “D” Min Basic Pay = Rs 17000/-
Provide for Skill by adding 25% = Rs 4250-
Total Group “C” Min Basic Pay = Rs 21250/-
DA = NIL
Total Basic Pay + DA = Rs 21250 /-

Ratios between minimum and maximum pay

The existing ratios between minimum and maximum pay of the central government and the States is as follows:

Government of India 1 :12.5
Andhra Pradesh 1:8.527
Kerala 1 :7
Karnataka 1:8.86

The gap is highest in Central Government should be reduced ratios between minimum and maximum pay to 1: 8

Hence there is need for revision of minimum wage for Central Government employees and also fitment formula on the lines of the State Government Pay Commissions, the State Government economic conditions are not as good as the Central Government still the State Governments are paying more for their employees comparing it to the Central Government, in case of the 7th CPC the Central Government Employees got only 14.29% , the Group “A” and above officers of Central Government got more pay hike due to higher fitment formula of 2.72 . Thus injustice is done for Group “C” and Group “B”.

whereas the Karnataka State Government employees got 30% wage hike , Central Government Employees got only 14.29% wage hike , the uniform multiplication factor should be fixed for the Central Government employees and also Central Government Employees should also get 30% wage hike .

Exemption of Transport Allowance and Medical Reimbursement from Income Tax – NC JCM Staff Side

Dated: February 2, 2018

Hon’ble Finance Minister,
Ministry of Finance,
(Government of India),
North Block,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,

Sub: General Budget 2018-19

We hope that, standard deduction, up to Rs.40,000 in the Budget (2018-19) announcement, was provided to give some relief to the salaried class, but at the same time, there is serious resentment in the salaried class in general and the Central Government Employees in particular because of non-enhancement of limit of the Income Tax.

We were hopeful that, in this budget, the Central Government would provide Income Tax exemption, if not Rupees Five Lakh, definitely Four Lakh, but nothing has been done, which has resulted in desperation in the Government Employees. Moreover, Education Cess has been increased from 3% to 4%, which will further put additional tax burden on the salaried class. In such a situation standard deduction given by the government will definitely not going to help to any salaried employees.

Not only the above, Transport Allowance and Medical Reimbursement, used to exempt earlier, have also been stopped in this budget, has given another blow to the salaried class.

Since there is all-round resentment in the salaried class, it would be in all appropriateness if the Income Tax Exemption is enhanced to minimum Rupees Four Lakh.

Sir, Government Employees are also very eagerly awaiting for improvement in the Minimum Wage and Fitment Formula as well as announcement of the Guaranteed Pension to the employees covered under the National Pension System(NPS). These also need to be given top priority to keep industrial peace among the Government Employees.

It is also requested that, Transport Allowance and Medical Reimbursement, almost exempted from the Income Tax, should also remain exempted from the Income Tax, to give some relief to the government employees in distress.

With Kind Regards

Sincerely yours

7th CPC: Travelling Allowance Rules – Implementation of the Recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission

7th CPC: Travelling Allowance Rules – Implementation of the Recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission

F.No.19030/1/2017-E.IV
Government of India

Dated 01st February, 2018

Office Memorandum

Sub: Travelling Allowance Rules – Implementation of the Recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission.

Consequent upon the issuance of this Department’s O.M. of even number dated 13.07.2017 regarding implementation of recommendations of 7th CPC on Travelling Allowance (TA), various references are being received in this Department seeking clarification regarding admissibility of Daily Allowance (DA) in case Govt. employee avails free boarding and lodging.

2. The 6th CPC had changed the old concept of Daily Allowance by introducing reimbursement of Hotel Accommodation, Food Bill and Taxi Charges on production of vouchers for the same. Since this was a new concept, therefore, option was given to the employees to choose either the old 5th CPC single rate of DA or the new system of DA based on reimbursement of expenses as per 6th CPC. The 7th CPC has recommended to continue the concept of reimbursement of Hotel Accommodation, Food Bill and Taxi Charges with the exception that vouchers are not required to be produced for Food Bills.

3. The matter regarding admissibility of DA in case of free boarding and lodging, has been considered in this Department. Daily Allowance is given to the Govt. employees as a reimbursement of the expenditure incurred by him on tour for his stay, food and travel at that station. ln case of free boarding and lodging, the Govt. employee, if incurring any expenditure on local travel, can claim the same as per para 2 E (i) and (iii) of the Annexure to 0.M. of even No. dated 13.07.2017. The earlier system of giving 25% of DA is being discontinued. Also, after implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, the facility of DA at 5th CPC rates is done away with.

4. This is issued with the approval of Secretary (Expenditure). Hindi version is attached.

Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF

NFIR: Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF

No.IV/NFIR/7th CPC/ (Imp)/2016/R.B./Pt.II

Dated: 29/01/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Upgradation of posts in Railways recommended by 7th CPC – clearance of DoP&T and MoF- reg.

Ref: (i)NFIR’s PNM item No.13/2017.

(ii)Railway Board’s file No.PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2-RBE No.93/2016 dated 02/08/2016 to GMs etc.,

(iii)NFIR’s letter No.IV/NFIR/7th CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 12/09/2016. 30/09/2016, 15/11/2016 & 28/11/2016.

Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the PNM item No.13/2017 relating to upgradation of the following posts in Railways :

nfir-7thCPC-Railways

The subject was discussed in the NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14.11.2017, consequently the Railway Board had stated as follows:-

“Ministry of Finance to whom the matter was referred to for a decision, as now referred it back to DoP&T. The railways are awaiting decision of the Government on the proposal sent by the Railway Ministry”.

The Federation had however requested the Railway Board to pursue vigorously with the concerned Ministries/Department for obtaining clearance for implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC in toto. Federation is disappointed to state that though more than two months passed, the subject continues to remain pending, leading to staff resentment against casual approach on 7th CPC recommendation.

NFIR therefore urges on the Railway Board to kindly expedite for obtaining clearance for upgrading the posts in the above categories.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
(Dr M. Raghavaiah),
General Secretary

Dear Sir,
Sub: Item No. 2,10 and 48 of the Joint Committee of MACP – Agenda items of the Standing Committee:

 

Kindly refer to the above. All the three items, which were discussed together pertains to the date of effect of the MACP Scheme which was introduced by the Government on the basis of the recommendations of the 6th Central Pay Commission. The Staff Side demand to give effect to the revised promotional scheme from the date of the effect, the Report of the Commission itself i.e on 1.1.2006 was unfortunately not accepted by the official side and was not allowed to reach its logical conclusion i.e. either by an agreement or disagreement.

 

We now send herewith copy of the judgement of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the matter vide W.P 3744 of 2016 dated 08/12/2017.

 

The Hon’ble apex court has categorically stated that the Govt’s decision to make the scheme effective prospectively was wrong and the scheme has to be implemented with effective from 1.1.2006. We request that the Govt. may issue necessary orders making the MACP Scheme Effective from 1.1.2006 instead of 1.9.2008. While issuing such an order it may also be clarified that the employees who were granted the benefit of ACP between 1.1.2006 to 31.08.2008 are not adversely affected and no recovery is ordered I from them in this connection.

 

Thanking you

Shri Gyanendra Dev Tripathi,
Jt. Secretary (E)
Department of Personnel & Training,
North Block, New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Kindly refer to the discussion, the Staff Side had with you on 12.1.2018 in the National Anomaly Committee meeting. During the discussion, over the admissibility or otherwise of the anomaly items, incidentally, we had represented to the request made by us to allow the employees to revise their option once exercised under Rule 6 of the Revised Pay Rules 2016. We send herewith copy of our communications sent to the Secretary Expenditure in this regard.

As has been pointed out by us, in our letter cited, the interpretation of the benefit of option had been at variance with consequent loss of emoluments to the employees. The intention of the Rules are often ambiguous. In similar situation both at the time of 5th CPC and 6th CPC on our request the Govt. had been good enough to permit revision of option. In the case of 6th CPC the Notification was issued in 2008 (in September 2008) and the option was allowed to be revised up to 31/12/2010, giving benefit for all employees who were promoted / granted ACP / MACP or granted increment up to 31/12/2010.

We therefore request you to kindly allow revision of option to switch over to 7th CPC pay scales / pay matrix to be exercised within three months of the issuance of the orders permitting such revision.

Yours faithfully,
