(ii) Presentation made to the Board on 06.03.2018
(iii) This office letter of even No. dated 23.03.2018

Pursuant to the presentation made by the GM/NWR to full Board on 06.03.2018, recommendations of the Committee have been considered by the Board (ME,MT,MS,FC,CRB) Following key recommendations have been approved by CRB.

1.  At the time of exercising option for fixation of pay the employee shall be provided with two options for calculation of pay so that he is able to pick up the best. As the employee would be exercising the option in a more informed manner, a wider window be provided to them, if they seek to change the option, and Master Circular for the pay fixation should be suitably amended.

2. Zonal Railways can consider providing accommodation (not leased) strictly for family of field level staff at a nodal station generally within 50-100 kms of the way side station where he or she is posted. The Zonal Railway may chose the nodal station on their own where they want to operate this scheme as per feasibility and allot vacant quarters at the nodal stations on the first come fist serve basis. If required some of the way side station quarters can be converted into transit camp or dormitories at the discretions of Zonal Railways. This would alleviate a major concern of out field staff who face problems on this account. GM’s may take necessary action based on the above.

3. It would be better to provide resting facility with toilets at manned level crossings for use by the trackmen and other field staff. This facility can be a temporary structure made up of porta cabins and be provided within the sanctioned budget of the Zonal Railways.

4. All other items which are apparently of general nature may be taken up as a pilot project by GM/NWR for which he is being fully authorized. The result of the pilot project be sent to Board for further action.

Concerned Directorates will issue necessary detailed instructions in respect of items at 1,2 & 3 above in particular and other items listed in the Annexure wherever necessary.

This issues with the concurrence of Associate Finance of Transformation Cell.

Salary and Travelling Allowance to retired Railway Staff re-engaged in Railways

Salary and Travelling Allowance to retired Railway Staff re-engaged in Railways

NFIR

No.II/57/Part I

Dated: 02-07-2018

The Secretary (E)
Railway Board
New Delhi

Dear sir,

Sub: Salary and Travelling Allowance to retired Railway Staff re-engaged in Railways – reg.

vide Railway Board’s instructions under letter No.E(NG)II/2007/RC-4/CORE/I dated 16/10/2017 [Item (vii) of para 2], it has been stipulated that the monthly remuneration of a retired employee being re-engaged be determined by reducing pension from his/her last pay drawn (i.e Basic Pay + DA). also vide Board’s letter dated 12/12/2017, the maximum age limit for re-engagement of retired hands has been enhanced to 65 years from 62 years.

Federation received grievances from the re-engaged retired hands with regard to non-payment of their legitimate dues as mentioned below:-

The re-engaged retired employees, when they work on continuous duty roster under HOER, they are denied payment of salary for performing extra hours of work beyond duty roster hours (i.e. 12 hours duty against duty hours of 8 hours).

When the retired employee is sent out of his headquarter station for performing duties at out station, he is denied payment of TA (daily allowance) on the plea that the Railway Board has not given any direction for payment of T.A., in such eventualities while payment of remuneration only is allowed as per Railway Board’s letter dated 16/10/2017.

perusal of above two points reveal that even the re-engaged retired hands, like other Railway staff, are required to be governed by the provision of HOER and when they are made to perform 12 hours duty against the rostered 8 hours, they should be paid additional wages as Over Time Allowance Similar;y, when these retired staff are sent out of their headquarters for performing duties, they should be paid Travelling Allowance (Daily Allowance) similar to the serving staff based on the rate of last basic pay drawn.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the above valid points and issue instructions to the zonal Railway etc., for payment of Over Time Allowance and the Travelling Allowance (daily allowance) to the retired re-engaged staff similar to serving staff.

A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully

S/d,

Sub: Financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the promotion from the post of Station Master (GP Rs. 4200/- pre revised Rs. 5000-8000) to Section Controller (PB-2, G.P Rs.4200/-/ Pre revised Rs. 5500-9000).

The issue regarding grant of financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the movement from the post of Station Master to Section Controller has been consideration of Board for some time. It has been decided that appointment to the post of Section Controller (G.P Rs. 4200/-)/Rs. 5500-9000(5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (G.P Rs.4200/-)/ Rs. 5000-8000 (5th CPC) is to be treated as lateral shift instead of promotion and therefore, should not be reckoned for the purpose of MACPS.

2. However, in cases where benefit of pay fixation under Rule 1313 {FR-22(I)(a)(i)} R-II, IREC Vol-II has already been extended on appointment as Section Controller (G.P Rs. 4200/-)/Rs.5500-9000(5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (G.P Rs.4200/-)/Rs.5500-9000 (5th CPC) treating the same as promotion (including under Court’s directions) this should be reckoned for the purpose of MACPS so that double benefit of promotional pay fixation and MACPS is avoided.

North Block,
New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Sub: Rectification of MACPS Anomalies – Stepping up of pay of Senior incumbents at par with Juniors – Case of Railway Accounts Department-reg.

The above subject has been taken up by the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), a recognized Federation of Railway employees, in the Permanent Negotiating Machinery (PNM) fora with the Railway Ministry. In the last meeting held between the Railway Board Members and the Federation on 17/05/2016, following agreement was recorded :-

It was explained to the Federation that the 7th CPC have addressed this issue in one of their recommendations. Therefore, we may await for the final outcome on the 7th CPC recommendations. If their recommendation is accepted by the Government, past cases of similar nature may be examined accordingly. The General Secretary/NFIR requested to see that injustice done to the Senior qualified staff is removed duly granting them the benefit of GP 5400/-.

Federation has since learnt that case file bearing No. PCV/2016/MACPS1(Pt1) dealing with the above subject has been sent by the Railway Ministry to the DoP&T to obtain NOC and has been pending since long period. The delay in granting NOC is causing frustration and resentment among the staff of Accounts Department on the Railways.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Secretary/DoP&T to kindly see that clearance from DoP&T to implement the recommendation of 7th Central Pay Commission is granted to the Railway Ministry soon.

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

Yours faithfully

No. 2018/V1/VP/1/5

Sub: Administrative / disciplinary action against Malpractices Detected by Executive

A Zonal Railway has recently detected two cases wherein salary payments have been made to non- existent staff. These two cases were detected by the Personnel/Finance Departments who subsequently handed over these cases to Vigilance for further inquiry.

Administrative/ disciplinary action against malpractices is the primary responsibility of the Executive. It is important that the concerned department which has discovered he fraud takes appropriate administrative /disciplinary action on its own initiative in cases where clear irregularity has been detected by them. Administrative action such as suspension/transfer to prevent further damage and tampering of evidence should be taken immediately. Issuing of charge-sheet for fraud discovered by the department itself should be initiated by the department concerned where clear cut irregularity has already been identified, instead of waiting for a further investigation by Vigilance. Immediate action is necessary to ensure that there is visible impact and a message that the administration will come down hard on corruption is sent down the line.

Nevertheless, when cases where clear-cut prima facie corruption/irregularity have occurred, such as in the cases mentioned above, and these have been handed over to vigilance for further investigation, they must be investigated on top priority. Vigilance must work towards completing the investigation reports and putting them up as per procedure within a period of 15 days. Delay occurring due to non-availability of documents or obtaining of clarificatory statements etc, may be brought to the notice of the PHODs/GM for quick resolution.

Necessary action in this regard may be taken accordingly. This has been issued with approval of PED/Vigilance.

DA/As above.
