Central Government employees salaries and benefits as per the 7th Pay Commission

Central Government employees salaries and benefits as per the 7th Pay Commission

What is the first month salary of new Central Government employees?

There is lot of curiosity among young job seekers to know the average first-month salaries of Central Government employees.

There is no defying the fact that almost all Indian youth, who have completed their education, do dream of getting a CG employment. The perks are plenty – job stability, good pay, regular increments and countless benefits…!

In its report, the Seventh Pay Commission has said that while the CG should be employing about 40,48,707 workers to carry out its tasks, it currently has only about 33,01,536 persons working for them. In other words, as on January 1, 2014, there are about 7,47,171 vacancies in various CG departments.

According to data, there are 9,47,586 Central Government employees between the ages of 50 and 60. Since, on an average, about one lakh employees retire each year, it is easy to conclude that there is a steady requirement for employees in Central Government departments.

UPSC and SSC are two different bodies that conduct exams for recruitment to central government. Between January 2004 and 2014, about 11,13,329 employment orders have been issued for various Central Government posts.

Central Government employees are currently classified as A, B and C. The designation, basic salary and other benefits of an employee are calculated based on this classification. As of January 2014, there are 91,501 higher officials in Group A; 2,80,892 officials in Group B; and 29,29,143 employees in Group C. Rs. 1,29,599 crores was the money spent on giving pay and allowances to all these employees in the year 2012-13. This is about 1.30 percent of the country’s total GDP.

Central Government employees salaries and benefits are currently being paid as per the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission. Rs. 18,000 is the minimum wages and Rs. 2,50,000 is the maximum wage that is being paid. The table below provides detailed list of the minimum and maximum wages of Central Government employees as per all the Pay Commissions – from the First to the Sixth.

central-government-employees-min-and-max-salary-table

 The Sixth Pay Commission had fixed the salaries as per the Grade Pay System. The Seventh Pay Commission has calculated the salaries as per the Level System. The new job recruitment Notifications for Central Government vacancies now mention the Grade Pay(6th CPC) or Level (7th CPC). One can calculate the basic pay of an employee with the help of the table given below.
Pay Band 5200-20200
Grade Pay 1800 1900 2000 2400 2800
Level 1 2 3 4 5
Pay Band 9300-34800
Grade Pay 4200 4600 4800 5400
Level 6 7 8 9
Pay Band 15600-39100
Grade Pay 5400 6600 7600
Level 10 11 12
Pay Band 37400-67000
Grade Pay 8700 8900 10000
Level 13 13A 14

Calculations of Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance, and Transport Allowance are usually done based on the city where the employee is posted. A Central Government employee is entitled to many other benefits too. These are decided based on factors like designation, nature of the job, location, etc.

No. II/2/Part VII

Dated: 24/07/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Record Note of Discussions held on 12th July 2017 at 15:00 hrs in the Chamber of AM (Staff) with both the Federations viz., AIRF and NFIR on the issue of:

(a) Change in staffing pattern of ASMs (G.P. Rs. 4200) in view of 7th CPC recommendations, and

(b) Change in’ staffing Pattern of TC, CC & ECRC consequent to abolition/upgradation and merger of categories in view of 7th CPC recommendations.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2016/PM1/12 dated 20/07/2017.

With reference to the record note of discussions, it is suggested that under the heading “NFIR” the name of the General Secretary be printed correctly.

Vide Para 4 of the enclosure to Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2016/PM1/12 dated 20/07/2017, the Board sought suggestions on both the issues – (a) & (b) above.

Accordingly, the Federation gives its suggestions as below:-

Station Masters’ category:

 The DR quota should be limited to 50%, considering the fact that LDCE being held applying norms prescribed for DR Quota through which cream among the qualified candidates also would become Station Masters’ (GP 4200/Pay Level 6).

The Promotion quota shall be 35% to be filled by those staff mentioned in the Board’s proposal upto the age of 50 years. Those in GP 1800/Pay Level 1 also be made eligible for Promotion quota, however, panel needs to be drawn in the order of seniority among the qualified staff (not to be treated as General Selection).

Commercial:

The Federation confirms the contents of Para 3(a) (b) (c) & (d) while maintaining its stand that the Ticket Checking category should as a whole, remain as separate category.

 

With regard to Para 3, there are precedents wherein the recommendations of previous Pay Commissions accepted by the Government have not been adopted by the Railway Ministry on the ground that Railways working is different. Example:- when the Government had accepted 5th CPC recommendation for classifying the posts in Pay Scale maximum of which was 9000 or above as “Group B”, the Railway Ministry had taken a view that the said decision was not implementable and accordingly not adopted.

Record Note of Discussions held on 12th  july  2o17 at 15:00 hrs.. in the Chamber of AM(Staff) with both the Federations, viz., AIRF and NFIR on the issue of :

(a) Change in staffing pattern of ASMs (C.P.Rs: 4200) in view of 7th CPC recommendations, and;

(b) Change in staffing Pattern of TC, CC & ECRC consequent to abolition/upgradation and merger of categories in view of 7th CPC recommendations.The following officers and representatives of Federations (AIRF & NFIR) attended the meeting-:

AIRF-NFIR

2.Points emerged/observations made on the issue of Change in staffing Points emerged/observations made on the issue of Change in staffing pattern of ASMs (G.P.Rs.42oo) in view of 7th CPC recommendations :

(a) Federations suggested that DR Quota for Station Master should be 50% with the provision that 50% of DR vacancies can be earmarked for GDCE. Federations were advised of the merit of existing 60% DR quota and its applicability.

(b) Federations suggested that LDCE quota should be 15%.

(c) Federations suggested that General Selection Quota should be 35%;

(d) A decision has to be taken whether erstwhile G.P. Rs. 1800 should be included as eligible for LDCE and General Selection for the post of SMs or not.

(e) There was also a demand that age limit should be 50 years for all irrespective of whether candidates were General, SC/ST or OBC. The existing IREM provision contained in para 122 and implication of amending the same was advised to Federations.

3. Points emerged/observations made on the issue of Change in staffing Pattern of TC, CC & ECRC consequent to abolition/upgradation and merger of categories in view of 7th CPC recommendations; however the point needs attention as to whether we are competent to change the recommendations of 7th CPC suo-motu;

(a) The existing staff  working  in the cadres ECRCs and commercial Clerks/inspector may be merged with the option to inter-change them;

 (b) Ticket Checking category as a whole should continue as separate category for the present.

(c) The merger of TC, ECRC and CC may be only for future recruits from prospective effect for which modalities be discussed;

d) 10 +2 qualification proposed for TC and CC should not be insisted for existing staff, who do not have this qualification.

4. Both the Federations will revert back with their suggestions on both the issues.

Central government employees feel “frustrated and squeezed” by their pay

7th CPC Central government employees feel “frustrated and squeezed” by their pay

7th-CPC-Central-government-employees

Central government employees feel “frustrated and squeezed” by their pay, which has flatlined since implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. But despite broad government stagnation in pay growth, it is still possible to maximise chances of getting minimum pay hike, he added.

The battle between the government and the central government employees unions is being seen because the government has decided not to give minimum pay hike for the central government employees.

A letter of Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) dated October 30, states that the hike in minimum Pay and fitment formula do not appear to be treated as an anomaly, therefore, these do not come under the purview of the NAC.

However, the National Anomaly Committee (NAC) has been formed in September, 2016 to look into pay anomalies arising out of the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations.

A day after the Cabinet cleared the 7th Pay Commission recommendations, three senior Cabinet Ministers including Finance Minister Arun Jaitley discussed this issue with the several central government employees’ unions leaders for more than two hours on June 30, 2016 in home minister Rajnath Singh’s house and they assured the leaders a High Level Committee would look into the increasing minimum Pay and fitment formula.

Their assurance had prevented several central government employees’ unions to go indefinite strike over pay hike from July 11, 2016.

“The minimum pay of central government employees Rs.18,000 was made on recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission. But government will consider hiking it after discussions with all stakeholders, once the proposal in this regard will be submitted to government by the proposed High Level Committee,” Jaitley had also said in Rajya Sabha on July 19, 2016.

While the High Level Committee has not yet been constituted. The government had said the NAC would discuss any pay hike agenda but DoPT letter now says minimum pay and fitment factor doesn’t come under the purview of the NAC.

The central government employees unions, including the Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers, have strongly criticized the government over the DoPT letter.

“The Confederation of Central Government Employees and Workers leaders said a meeting would be held on January 24, so they may ask employees to go on indefinite strike over pay hike,” a union leader said.

The top official in the Finance Ministry said that the ministry would like to review the DoPT letter, because the DoPT has issued the letter against Finance Minister’s promise to hike minimum pay.

This is probably the first time that the Finance Ministry is likely to raise minimum pay while the government already approved the 7th Pay Commission recommendations.

The Finance Ministry is likely to remain committed to hike in minimum pay beyond the 7th Pay Commission recommendations for the central government employees, he confirmed.

Earlier, the government gave nod the 7th Pay Commission proposal of minimum basic pay from Rs.7,000 to Rs.18,000 per month while the maximum basic pay from Rs.80,000 to Rs.2.5 lakh with a fitment factor of 2.57 times uniformly of basic pay of 6th pay commission.

The Unions have been demanding minimum pay Rs. 26,000 instead of Rs.18,000 with 3.68 fitment factor.

AIRF: Brief on the discussion with the CRB on date

AIRF: Brief on the discussion with the CRB on date

No.AIRF/24(C)

Dated: December 1, 2017

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades!

Sub: Brief on the discussion with the CRB on date

I met the CRB in the forenoon on date and had discussion on the following issues:

1. Benchmarking for financial upgradation under MACPS consequent upon implementation of VII CPC – I explained the CRB that, prior to implementation of VII CPC recommendations, benchmarking for financial upgradation under MACPS, and that for regular promotion had been similar. With the implementation of higher benchmarking for financial upgradation under MACPS, there is serious resentment among the Railwaymen as majority of them is deprived of this legitimate benefit. The CRB assured to look into the matter on priority.

2. Appointment on Compassionate Ground of the wards/widows of the Railwaymen either died in harness or medically incapacitated – With the direct recruitment qualification for open market recruitment in erstwhile GP Rs.1800 having been upgraded to High School + ITI or Course Completed Act Apprenticeship, appointment on Compassionate Ground to those wards of the Railwaymen who are not in possession of this qualification is being denied. I had, therefore, raised this issue and the CRB has assured us that this issue shall also be dealt with on priority and the provision as existed earlier, i.e. placing them in -1S pay scale would be considered.

On the issue of Compassionate Ground Appointment, in general, the CRB said that, it would continue on Indian Railways on 1:1 basis.

3. Implementation of upgraded pay scales as recommended by the VII CPC to certain categories of Railwaymen – I had also discussed this issue with the CRB, explaining that the VII CPC has recommended upgraded pay scales to certain categories of Railwaymen, viz. SSO(A/Cs)/Sr. Travelling Inspector(A/Cs)/ Sr. Inspector(Stores A/Cs), Chemical & Metallurgical Asstt., Chemical & Metallurgical Supdt., Asstt. Chemist & Metallurgist, but the same are yet to be implemented, and the Ministry of Railways have unnecessarily referred the issue to the DoP&T, which is quite unfair and urged upon the CRB to implement the same without further delay. He also assured a positive action in the matter.

4. Absorption of Course Completed Act Apprentices in the Railways – AIRF has raised this issue many times, wherein we have requested that, the Apprentices who have completed their course before making quota of 20% should be regularized without subjecting them to any RRCs examination as has been done earlier with paper screening. The CRB assured that he would definitely do the needful and would try that this skilled workforce should join the Indian Railways at an earliest.

5. Improvement in the condition of Railway Quarters and Colonies – Regarding complaints pertaining to maintenance of railway quarters and colonies, I suggested the CRB to think on the subject out of the box. He appreciated the sincere suggestion given by me that, old railway colonies should be demolished and replaced with multi-storey railway colonies, equipped with lift, CCTVs, boundary etc., so that, the employees and their families, living therein, should feel secure. I also mentioned that, till they get proper railway quarter maintenance, the staff should be paid “Maintenance Allowance” for petty repairs, whitewash and painting etc.

This is for information and wide publicity.

Comradely yours,
sd/-

Good Service / Good Conduct / Badge Pay in 7th Pay Commission

Good Service / Good Conduct / Badge Pay in 7th Pay Commission

Good Service / Good Conduct / Badge Pay (Para 8.8.3-5)

Existing Provisions: PBORs of the three Services are granted Good Service Pay after completion of certain specified length of service during which they have maintained high degree of discipline, good conduct and professional update. For PBORs of army, the specified length is 3, 6 and 9 years of service. For PBORs of IAF and Navy, it is 4, 8 and 12 years of service. For the PBORs of the Indian Army. The existing rate is Rs.64 pm for each of the three stages, while for the PBORs of Indian Navy and the Indian Air Force, the amount is Rs.80 pm.

Recommendations of 7th CPC: The 7th CPC has recommended to enhance the rate of this allowance by 2.25. The nomenclature has also been changed to Good Service/Good Conduct/ Badge Allowance.

Demands:

I. Defence Forces: Good Service Pay / Good Service Badge be allowed to all JCOs on their promotion or these may be allowed to be subsumed in the Pay at the time of promotion to JCO.

II. Cabinet Secretariat: This allowance may be granted to PBORs in Special Frontier Force (SFF) as well.

Analysis and Recommendations of the Committee:
The demands of the Defence Forces as well as SFF do not emanate from any changes suggested by the 7th CPC in this regard. Therefore, they do not fall under the remit of this Committee. MoD has not made any recommendations in this regard. The recommendations of the 7th CPC on Good Service / Good Conduct / Badge Pay,  may therefore, be accepted without any change

Report of the Committee Funeral Allowance : 7th Pay Commission

Report of the Committee Funeral Allowance : 7th Pay Commission

7th-Pay-Commission-Funeral-Allowance

Funeral Allowance (Para 8.17.54)

Existing Provision: When death of an employee occurs in peace areas, a funeral allowance of Rs. 6,000 is granted and mortuary charges are reimbursed in the case of Defence personnel.

Reasons mentioned by 7th CPC for recommending abolition:
With the pay raises provided by successive Pay Commissions, this kind of an allowance has lost its meaning.

Demand:

Ministry of Defence: This allowance may not be discontinued considering the circumstances in which this allowance is granted. The rates may be enhanced by suitable multiplication factor.

Analysis and Recommendations of the Committee:
The Committee is of the view that this cannot be categorized as an allowance as it is not paid to the employee but to the Next of Kin. Para 8.2.3 of the 7th CPC Report also states that  “Allowance” should be used when it is paid to an individual and if it is paid as an administrative expenditure, it should be referred to as expense or expenditure. Considering the circumstances, continuation of this expenditure by the Government might be necessary. However, instead of calling it Funeral Allowance, it may be renamed as Funeral Expense, and the expenditure on this account, at the existing rate of Rs.6,000/- and mortuary expenses, may be directly borne by the concerned Unit and reflected in budget and accounts accordingly with further proviso that, whenever necessary, the concerned unit can pay this amount to Next of Kin of the deceased at the applicable rates.

All Regional Offices/ZIETs

Sub: Fixation of pay under CCS (RP) rules 2016: clarification regarding.
Madam/Sir,
Please refer the proviso contained in Rule 5 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 vide which a Government servant may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until the date on which he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing pay structure or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in the existing pay structure subject to other provisions of this rule.

2) In this context, the matter regarding fixation of pay under 7th CPC in respect of those employees promoted between 1st day of January, 2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 that is 25th July, 2016 and opted to switch over in revised pay structure from the date of next increment after availing the benefit of promotion in pre revised pay structure has been examined by Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure. It has since been clarified by the Ministry of Finance Deptt of Expenditure (E.III-A Branch) that the option to switch over to the revised pay structure either on 01.01.2016 or from a later date than 01.01.2016 i.e., on the date of promotion or the date of next increment, is applicable under.-Rule-5 – in case of post held on 01.01.2016. In other words, if the date of next increment on 01.07.2016 for a post held on 01.01.2016 falls after the date of promotion, then the date of next increment for the post held on 01.01.2016 has no relevance for option, as this post is no longer held on the date of next increment. In view of the above, option cannot be exercised from 01.07.2016 to switch over to the revised pay structure in such cases consequent upon the implementation of 7th CPC. Copies of letters issued by the office of CGDA, UIan Batar Road, Plam, Delhi Cantt.-110010 including the one referred to supra are enclosed for ready reference.

It is, therefore, requested that pay fixation cases in terms of 7th CPC may be regulated-accordingly.

Encl: As above

Yours faithfully

Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor Stories suddenly ended in anticlimax

Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor Stories suddenly ended in anticlimax

“There is no scope for them anymore to continue this story and decided to end this up with the note of ‘there is no scope for change in Minimum Pay‘.

There is a strong reason to come up with the title for this article as ‘Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor Stories suddenly ended in anticlimax‘. Because many websites kept writing that Minimum Pay will be increased to Rs.21000 in January 2018. As we didn’t find any truth in that stories we haven’t said anything about this as it may lead the people to have false hope. Instead, we published 4 articles which claimed firmly that there was no such proposal under consideration of Government.

Finally those who cooked up a story entitled ‘Govt to Announce Minimum Pay Increase to Rs.21000‘ and writing about it on day to day basis, have come forward to end this story with a note of No Scope for change in Minimum Pay. Because they clearly know it was a fake news. But some news websites who believed that this cooked up story might be true, started writing numerous article about increasing of minimum pay from Rs.18000 to Rs. 21000 and said “Good news would come after January 2018”

As January 2018 is nearing, people started asking the Leaders of Unions and Associations the following questions. is it true? Is there any proposal as such under consideration of Central government? The NC JCM Staff Side Leaders hesitated to answer this question because they were afraid of that any negative reply will backfire them.

But there was no sign of announcing Minimum Pay increase. The rumour mongers smelled the frustration of Government servants on Minimum Pay increase as it is not going to happen in January 2018 . So they started writing again that Minimum Pay will be increased after April 2018 as Anomaly Committee is going to submit its report to the Government on Minimum Pay issue after January 2018.

Now all the bridges to Minimum wage issue are burnt for them after DoPT has clearly said in its Letter to NCJCM Staff Side that the issue of Minimum Pay Increase and Revising Fitment Factor and Allowances effect date are not anomalies. According to the DOPT Letter No. F.No.11/2/2016-JCA-1(Pt.) dated 30th October, 2017, it is stated that these three important issues are not in accord with the three postulates which, as described in DoPT’s 0M. No. 11/2/2016-JCA dated 16th August, 2016 and 20th February, 2017 for treating them as Anomaly.

So Minimum pay and Fitment Factor issue will not be treated as a case of anomaly and it will not be taken up in national Anomaly Committee for discussion.

So there is no scope for them anymore to continue this story and decided to end this up with the note of ‘there is no scope for change in Minimum Pay‘.

But the Committee which is constituted to Examine the Demand of revising Minimum Pay has not held any meeting to discuss this important issue. And also, it was stated in the DoPT’s Letter that Effect date of Allowances should be decided by the Central Government and hence the NC JCM Staff Side should take up this issue to the Government.

So the ways and means for settling these issues are not ruled out yet. Now it is up to the Federations, to what extent they are serious to pursue this issue to get this done either through negotiated settlement or protest.

Departmental Anomaly Committee to settle the anomalies arising out of the implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations

 NFIR

No.IV/DAC/7CPC/2016

Dated: 241/11/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Departmental Anomaly Committee to settle the anomalies arising out of the implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission’s recommendations-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/DAC/I dated 05/10/2016, 29/03/2017, 18/04/2017, 03/05/2017, 25/05/2017, 06/06/2017 & 20/11/2017.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/DAC/7 CPC/2016 dated,09/06/2017 & 16/08/2017.

In continuation of above cited references, the Federation furnishes additional material on Item No. 17 pertaining to Pharmacist category to facilitate the DAC to discuss in the ensuing meeting. Attention is also invited to NFIR’s letter of even number dated 09/06/2017 on this issue of which Item No. 17 of the enclosure is relevant (Annexure-I).

Federation also encloses an Item under heading “grant of Additional Allowance to the remaining categories of Running Staff viz., ALP, Sr. ALP, LP (Shunting), Goods (Guard)”  together with copy of Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2017/R-U/38 dated 20/11/2017 to NFIR for discussion in the second meeting of the DAC (Annexure-II).

So far as the subject “Technical Supervisors of Railways“, is concerned, the DoP&T vide F.No. 11/2/2016-JCA-I(Pt.) dated 30th October 2017 has since advised the Secretary (Staff Side) that this being Railway specific item, the Staff Side may take up at the Department Anomaly Committee of Ministry of Railways. A copy of Note pertaining to Technical Supervisors of Railways is also enclosed which may be clubbed with Item No. (xviii) sent to Railway Board on 08/11/2017 (Annexure-III).

DA/As above

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

 

Annexure I

The Commission has failed to appreciate that the category of pharmacist possessing the upgraded qualification of 4 year Degree (Technical) has not been considered on par with the other categories of staff holding Degree qualification. The study report submitted by the IIM Ahmedabad which forms the basis.of recommended pay scales to all the employees of the Central Government, does not contain the category of  Pharmacist, apparently, the Pharmacist category has not been studied for the purpose of granting appropriate Pay Scale.

In view of the prevailing situation the case of Pharmacist deserves to be review by the Anomaly Committee for grant of atleast GP 4600/- at the time of appointment.

Annexure-II

Grant of Additional Allowance to the remaining categories of Running Staff viz., ALP, Sr. SLP, LP Shunting, Goods (Guard)

Railway Board vide letter No. PC-VII/2017/1/7/5/5 dated 10/08/2017 issued instruction for grant of revised rates of Additional Allowance to the Running Staff viz., Loco Pilot (Goods)/Passenger/Mail-Express/Motorman, Sr. Passenger (Guard) and Guard (Mail/Express) w.e.f. 01st July 2017 without covering the remaining Running Staff belonging to the categories of ALP, Sr. ALP, LP (Shunting), Guard (Goods) etc. In this connection, Federation contends that the remaining Running Staff have been discriminated against wrongly ignoring the fact that there working conditions and responsibilities are akin to those Running Staff who have been granted revised rates of Additional Allowance.

Federation further contends that the ALP, Sr. ALP, LP (Shunting) and Guard (Goods) are also part of Running Staff for all purpose, therefore they also need to be covered for grant of Additional Allowance like other Running Staff to avoid the feeling of de-motivation among them.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to review the case afresh and issue instructions for granting Additional Allowance to the ALP, Sr. ALP, LP (Shunting) and Guard (Goods).

Annexure-III

Sub: Seventh CPC pay structure – grave injustice done to Graduate Engineers and Diploma Engineers in Railways – Review urged.

NFIR invites kind attention of the Railway Board to Para 11.40.104 to 11.40.115 of the 7th CPC report (Page No. 747 to 749).

Vide Para 11.40.109 of the 7th CPC report, it has been stated that “the next post in the hierarchical structure for Technical Supervisors is the post of Assistant Engineer. There is a 1:1 ratio between the posts of Assistant Engineer filled by Direct Recruitment and those filled through promotion“.

In this connection, Federation points out that no promotions are presently available for SSEs on the basis of 1:1 ratio. The ground reality is that directly recruited Graduate Engineers to the post of SSE (6th CPC GP 4600/-) continued to remain in the same Grade Pay/Pay Level for not less than 15 to 20 years. Federation also conveys that it would be incorrect to call them “Technical Supervisors” while their official designations are Sr. Section Engineers or Jr. Engineers.

It is further learnt that the 7e Central Pay Commission had relied upon the study report given by Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad for denying the improved pay matrices for Graduate Engineers as well Diploma Engineers. Para 6.16.2 of the study report of IIM, Ahmedabad submitted to the 7th CPC is reproduced below:

“6.16.2 Sector-Wise Career Progression and Promotion Rules:

NFIR-Career-Progression-Promotion-rules

NFIR hopes that the Railway Board admits the truth that never promotions have been granted to the Graduate Engineers on completion of 4-years period to the post of Assistant Engineer and to the post of Divisional Engineer on completion of 4-years in the previous pay level. The IIM’s distorted study report has done grave damage to the career growth of directly recruited Graduate Engineers in Railways. The wrong information given to the 7th CPC with regard to career progression and salary details of Graduate Engineers recruited though RRB in Railways through IIM’s study report has caused severe damage to their career resulting around resentment among them.

It is sad to state that the Pay Commission has deviated its own principle as enumerated vide Para 4.1.19 of its report, which is reproduced below:-

“Historically the qualification and skill set required as well as roles and responsibilities discharged at various levels in the overall hierarchy have been central to the basis for pay grading. The rationalization index has been applied keeping this principle in mind”.

It is surprising to note that the Railway Ministry (as recorded vide Para 11.40.1 12 of the 7th CPC report) had strongly defended the continuation of existing arrangements on functional grounds, ignoring the reality that the Railway Ministry in the year 2010 had proposed replacement of GP 46001- with GP 4800/- for improving the career growth of SSEs etc. The Railway Board also failed to mention before 7th CPC of its decision to upgrade Apex Level (GP 4600/-) posts to Group ‘B’ Gazetted (which is yet to be finalized). A.serious anomaly has arisen as a result of misleading facts placed by Railway Ministry before 7th CPC and also the totally incorrect study report of IIM, Ahmedabad presented to the 7th CPC as sought by the Commission.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Ministry to review de-novo the entire issue and rectify all aberrations and anomalies arisen consequent upon the denial of improved pay structure and status to the Graduate Engineers as well as Diploma Engineers in Railways and also accord approval for time bound promotions to them.

This Department’s OM No. 6/8/2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 17.6.2010 inter-alia provides for rates of Deputation (Duty) Allowance admissible to Central Government employees.

2. As provided in para 7 of Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure’s Resolution No.1-2/2016-IC dated 25th July, 2016, the matter regarding allowances (except Dearness Allowance) based on the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) was referred to a Committee under the Chairmanship of Finance Secretary and until a final decision thereon, all Allowances have been paid at the existing rates in the existing pay structure.

4. As mentioned at Sl.No.46 of the Appendix-II of the said Resolution dated 6th July 2017, the recommendation of the 7th CPC for enhancement of ceiling of Deputation (Duty) Allowance for civilians by 2.25 times has been accepted and this decision is effective from 1st July, 2017.

The Deputation (Duty) Allowance admissible shall be at the following rates:

(a) In case of deputation within the same station the Deputation (Duty) Allowance will be payable at the rate of 5% of basic pay subject to a maximum of Rs.4500 p.m.

(b) In case of deputation involving change of station, the Deputation (Duty) Allowance will be payable at the rate of 10% of the basic pay subject to a maximum of Rs.9000 p.m.

(c) The ceilings will further rise by 25 percent each time Dearness Allowance increases by 50 percent.

Note 3 In the case of a Proforma Promotion under Next Below Rule (NBR): If such a Proforma Promotion is in a Level of the Pay Matrix which is higher than that of the ex-cadre post, the basic pay under such Proforma Promotion shall not be taken into account for the purpose of Deputation (Duty) Allowance. However, if such a Proforma Promotion under NBR is in a Level of the pay matrix which is equal to or below that of the ex-cadre post, Deputation (Duty) Allowance shall be admissible on the basic pay of the parent cadre post allowed under the proforma promotion, if opted by the deputationist.

Note 4 In case of Reverse Foreign Service, if the appointment is made to post whose pay structure and/ or Dearness Allowance (DA) pattern is dissimilar to that in the parent organisation, the option for electing to draw the basic pay in the parent cadre [alongwith the Deputation (Duty) Allowance thereon and the personal pay, if any] will not be available to such employee.

Note: 5 The term ‘same station’ for the purpose will be determined with reference to the station where the person was on duty before proceeding on deputation.

Note: 6 Where there is no change in the headquarters with reference to the last post held, the transfer should be treated as within the same station and when there is change in headquarters it would be treated as not in the same station. So far as places falling within the same urban agglomeration of the old headquarters are concerned, they would be treated as transfer within the same station.
