Sir,

Sub:-Pay fixation to Running Staff while granting financial upgradation in the identical Grade Pay (VI CPC) under MACPS – Reckoning Special Running Staff Allowance for pay fixation-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR s letter No. IV/MACPS/Part 10, dt. 16.05.2017 on the above subject and to state that tile instructions for fixation of pay at the time of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS are contained in Para-4 of the Annexure to Board’s letter dt. 10.06.09 (RBE NoA 01/2009) which stipulates as under:-

“Benefit of pay fixation available at the time Df regular promotion shall also be allowed at the time of financial upgraiation under the Scheme. Therefore, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same Grade pay as granted under MACPS”.

In view of the above, nodal Branches for 6th  & 7th CPC viz. PC-VI and PC-VII, have been consulted. They have advised that the Additional Allowance/Special Running Staff Allowance is not reckoned for fixation of pay on promotion. As such it is not feasible to reckon the same for pay fixation purpose while granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
for Secretary/Railway Board

No. II/6/Part 7

Dated: 27/05/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Filling up 50% of DR Quota vacancies through GDCE – Eligibility to staff in same Grade Pay/Pay Scale-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-92/PM2/ 16 dated 20/08/1993.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2001/PM2/ 12 dated 21/01/2002.
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-201 1/PM1/2 dated 12/09/2014
16/09/2014.

The extant instructions provide opportunity to the staff who fulfill the conditions of educational qualification etc., laid down for direct recruitment, to appear for GDCE against 50% DR Quota vacancies for pursuing their career. The policy decision of Railway Board Vide letters cited under reference does not give opportunity to the staff of same Grade Pay/Pay Scale to apply for GDCE and face examination for the same Grade Pay/Pay Scale post as the provision allows only those in the lower Grade Pay/Pay Matrices Level.

The above subject was also discussed informally with the Director General (Personnel) on 26th May 2017.

NFIR is of the view that the staff of the same Grade Pay/Pay Matrices should also be made eligible to volunteer and appear for GDCE as is allowed in the case of those working in the lower Grade Pay/Pay Matrix Level. NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly review the extant instructions and modify the same to facilitate those who are in the same Grade Pay avail the opportunity of GDCE. It is also requested that GDCE be made as a regular scheme for filling 50% DR Quota vacancies annually by the Zonal Railways etc., to facilitate talented and highly educated staff to avail the scheme for improving their career.

Yours faithfully,

Pay anomaly in the Supervisory Cadre of Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways, and pay disparity with other Supervisory Cadres of the Central Government Services

Dated: May 24, 2017

The Jt. Secretary(Pers.),
Department of Expenditure,
Room No.39-A, North Block,
New Delhi

Dear Madam,

Sub: Pay anomaly in the Supervisory Cadre of Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways, and pay disparity with other Supervisory Cadres of the Central Government Services

While deposing before the 7th CPC, this Federation brought to the notice of the Commission that,subsequent to the acceptance of the VI CPC recommendations a peculiar anomaly arosewhere a junior drawing higher Grade Pay than the senior in the cadre of Section Officer(Accounts). The Committee of the 7th Pay commission observed that the above anomalous situation purely arose on circumstantial grounds and needs to be rectified. Thus in its report, the Commission found merit in the above contention and recommended that Seniors must be given the benefit of stepping up and further in line with their recommendations for Organized Accounts Cadres, it further recommended that “Section Officer (Accounts) Railways in GP Rs.4800 should be upgraded, on completion of four years’ service, to the existing GP Rs.5400(PB-2), viz., Level 9 in the Pay Matrix, on non-functional basis.(Ref.: Para No.11.40.83 of 7th CPC).

The 7th Central Pay Commission acknowledged that the skill sets of the Organized Accounts Cadres are fairly higher and the organized accounts cadres have to compulsorily pass various stringent examinations for promotions. Moreover, Sr. Section Officers(A/Cs) had been assigned complete parity with Section Officers(S.O.) of the Central Secretariat Service(CSS) and they had been granted the pay scale of Rs.6500-10500(S-12) w.e.f. 01.01.1996 in accordance with 6th CPC. Further, it was also noted that parity between Organized Accounts Cadres and the cadre of Section Officers of CSS was disturbed by granting non-functional upgradation to GP Rs.5400(PB-3) after four years of service to Section Officers of CSS only. The Commission also noted that, non-functional up-gradation from GP Rs.4800 to GP Rs.5400(PB-3), on completion of four years of service, has been accorded to a number of posts by the Government of India in 2008. The Commission also found no reason and justification to deprive this benefit of upgradation to GP Rs.5400 to the Officers of the Organized Accounts Cadres who are in GP Rs.4800.

“Thus, the Pay Commission recommended that, all officers in the Organized Accounts Cadres (in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, Defence Accounts Department, Indian Civil Accounts Organization, Railways, Post and Telecommunications), who are in GP Rs.4800, should be upgraded, on completion of four years’ service to GP Rs.5400(PB-2), viz. pay level 9, in the pay matrix”. (Ref. Para 11.12.140 of 7th CPC).

To utter dismay, the Government of India, while accepting the recommendations of the Pay Commission on upgrading of posts, left out the Ministry of Defence and Railways for non-functional upgradation to GP Rs.5400(PB-3) after four years of service for the categories of AAOs(Finance Division of Defence, Ministry of Defence) and Senior Section Officer(Accounts), Senior Travelling Inspector(Accounts) and Senior Inspector(Store Accounts), Ministry of Railways, with the remarks that, “it will be examined by DOPT for taking a comprehensive view in the matter”. The DoP&T took almost nine months and transferred the issue on 7th April, 2017 to the Ministry of Finance(Expenditure). In other words, benefit of upgradation to GP Rs.5400 after completion of four years of service has been granted to all other Organized Accounts Cadres of the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, Indian Civil Accounts Organization and Post and Telecommunications.

The Ministry of Defence in their recent ID Note No.369/C/2017 dated 23.03.2017 also recommended that, “above benefit be extended to the Assistant Accounts Officer(AAO) of Defence Accounts Department”. On the other hand, DoP&T, in their communication ID Note No.1198678/16-Estt.(Pay-I) dated 02.02.2017 to the Executive Director, Pay Commission-III, Ministry of Railways, advised the Ministry of Railways to consult Department of Expenditure since revision of pay scales comes under the administrative domain of the Department of Expenditure in terms of Government of India(Allocation of Business) Rules. It shows the indifferent approach of government of India towards Railway Accounts Employee.

This issue has been elaborated and explained in the tabulated format at Annexure ‘A’.

The Supervisory Cadre of the Accounts Department of the Railways is also entrusted with the responsibilities of presenting the Railway Accounts on widely accepted of accrual based Accounting in addition to presenting the Government Accounts as per requirements laid down in the Constitution of India, as announced by Hon’able Minister of Railway, Shri Suresh Prabhu, in his budget speech.

It would be highly appreciated, if the benefit of grant of GP Rs.5400 is extended to Supervisory Cadre of the Accounts Department, Ministry of Railways, on completion of four years of service in GP Rs.4800, who are the only left in this case. This will also end pay disparity between the Organized Accounts Cadres of the Government of India.

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.

Comradely Yours,

Grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme in the promotional hierarchy-instead of Grade Pay hierarchy

MACP on Promotional Hierarchy instead of Grade Pay: Less advantageous in some cases (Clerical & Steno): Railway Board unveils with example

The General Secretary,
NFIR,
3, Chelmsford Road, New Delhi-55

Sir,

Sub:-Board’s item No.3-Grant of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme in the promotional hierarchy-(instead of Grade Pay hierarchy) {item(s) to be discussed with Board (MS &FC)}.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10, dated 10.04.2017 on the above subject and to state that Board’s reply dt. 17.04.2017 is based on the factual position relating to financial upgradiation being granted presently which has been ascertained from Northern Railway.

Meanwhile an another Railway i.e. Western Railway vide their letter dt. 06.03.2017 has also apprised that Accounts Clerk and Stenographers are getting GP Rs.4600/- and GP Rs.4800/- as 3rd MACPS respectively whereas under the ACP Scheme no further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 4200/- for Accounts Clerks and Rs.4600 for Stenographer would be admissible. Thus, the Federation’s contention that ACP is more advantageous than MACP Scheme for certain categories of employees is contrary to the factual position.

Further, the submissions made by the Federation seems based on theoretical premise and the same is contrary to the situation factually obtaining on Zonal Railways. As such, the Federations’ allegation that Staff are put in disadvantageous position on account of financial upgradation allowed in pay structure hierarchy under MACPS is not found validate. As requested, a copy of supporting order in respect of Office Clerk/Accounts Clerk Cadre is furnished herewith.

In view of the above, Federation is requested to appreciate the factual position. DA: As above.

Yours faithfully,

Grant of 1st Class Privilege Pass to the ASMs GP 2800/- upgraded to GP 4200/- (PB-2)/7th CPC Pay Level 6

Grant of 1st Class Privilege Pass to the ASMs GP 2800/- upgraded to GP 4200/- (PB-2)/7th CPC Pay Level 6

7th CPC Pay Level 6

No. I/15/Part III

Dated: 22/04/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of 1st Class Privilege Pass to the ASMs GP 2800/- upgraded to GP 4200/- (PB-2)/7th CPC Pay Level 6-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to letter No. E(W)2008/PS 5-1/38 dated 06/01/2011, according to which employees working in GP 4200/- (PB-2) have been made eligible to receive 1st Class Privilege Pass. In this context, NFIR desires to convey that with the upgradation of the posts of ASM (GP 2800/PB-1) to GP 4200/PB-2 pursuant to implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC as communicated vide Board’s letter dated 02/08/2016, cited under reference (Note 2 of Annexure 13) the ASMs have been upgraded from VIth CPC GP 2800 to GP 4200/- (PB-2) consequently placed in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level 6 with effect from 01/01/2016. They are therefore eligible for 1st class pass automatically. Reports received at this that on a few Zonal Railways, the 1st Class Pass entitlement is being denied on the plea that separate orders have not yet been issued by the Railway Board.

In this connection, NFIR re-iterates that Board’s instructions dated 06/01/2011 are very clear and therefore Zonal Railways should not deny 1st Class Privilege Pass to those ASMs who have been placed in GP 4200 (PB-2)/Pay Matrix Level 6.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarification to the Zonal Railways for granting 1st Class Privilege Pass to those ASMs placed in GP 4200/Pay Level 6 without causing any hurdle. Copy of clarificatory instructions may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully
S/d,

Sub: Promotion from GP Rs.1800 (Level-1) to GP Rs.1900 (Level-2) against 16-2/3% quota – Minimum eligibility Condition of service for selection.

As the Railways are aware, in terms of Board’s letter No.E(NG)1-96/CFP/27 dated 10.10.2000, 16-2/3% of the Posts in the lowest grade of Commercial Clerks, Ticket Collectors, Trains Clerks, Offices Clerks and other categories of Clerks like stores clerks, etc. are filled by promotion of Matriculate erstwhile Group ‘D’ employees with a minimum of two years service in the concerned seniority units entirely on merit on the basis of a competitive examination.

2. A question has now arisen as to whether any relaxation in two years of service condition is to be given to SC/ST candidates to appear in the selection for promotion from GP Rs.1800 (Level-1) to GP Rs.1900 (Level-2) against 16-2/3% quota being filled up on the basis of merit.

3. Accordingly, it is clarified that SC/ST employees in GP Rs.1800 (Level-1) will be eligible for consideration in the selection for promotion to GP Rs.1900 (Level-2) and above against 16-2/3% promotion quota, only on completion of two years regular service in the concerned seniority unit.

Reckoning GP 4200/- PB-2 as entry grade pay for granting financial upgradation under MACPS to the Pharmacist category

No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10

Dated: 07/02/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Reckoning GP 4200/- PB-2 as entry grade pay for granting financial upgradation under MACPS to the Pharmacist category – reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 30/08/2016 and
22/12/2016.

(ii) Railway Board’s reply vide No. PC-V/2011/M/NFIR dated
24/01/2017
Federation does not agree with the view taken by the Railway Board by misinterpretation of the contents of DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb 1992. In this connection, Federation once again cites below the facts which have been ignored by the Board while considering the demand:

  • It is true that vide para 2 of the said OM, while the DoP&T has laid down criteria for assessing the suitability of the incumbents of the posts due to revision of pay scales/upgradation, at the same time in sub-para 2 of the same OM, it has been clarified that  where the upgradation involves replacement scale without higher responsibilities or higher qualification but with higher eligibility of service, in such situation suitability may not be assessed.
  • It has been further clarified that those who fulfill the criteria of qualifying service, should be appointed to the upgraded post from the date on which they complete the qualifying service.
  • The condition stipulated in sub-para 2 of DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb 1992 has been fulfilled by the Pharmacists who though recruited in GP 2800 have been appointed to GP 4200 (6th CPC) on completion of 2 years service in GP 2800/- (PB-1).

The plea taken by the Railway Board that the said OM of DoP&T is applicable for assessing the suitability of the incumbents, is therefore, misconceived, illogical and unjustified. On the other hand, the case of Pharmacists for granting MACP benefit is required to be dealt applying the provisions contained in the DoP&T’s OM dated 4th Feb,1992.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway instructions to the Zones etc., allowing MACP endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

Dated: February 3, 2017

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions,

Dear Comrades!

Sub: Meeting with Hon’ble Minister for Railways

Today I met Hon’ble Minister for Railways, Shri Suresh Prabhakar Prabhu and handed him over a copy of our Protest Letter, No.AIRF/24(C) dated February 2, 2017, against Railway Board’s letter No.2017/E(LR)III/Ref./RB/1 dated 30.01.2017, wherein Supervisors(Grade Pay of Rs.4200 and above) working in Safety Categories have been debarred from become office-bearers of the unions/federation after 31.03.2017.

I explained him that, on the one hand railway administrations wants all sorts of cooperation from the federation, on the other they are issuing such a letter wherein they are directly interfering in the unions/federation affairs.

Hon’ble MR immediately called the CRB and advised him that this issue should be resolved without any further loss of time.

In our letter as well as during the course of discussions I demanded immediate withdrawal of Railway Board’s letter supra dated 30.01.2017, which is illegal and against 87th ILO Convention and having no ground for debarring the supervisors from the trade union in the name of safety.

Though the CRB has assured that, shortly needful will be done in the matter, but it is advised to all of you that we should continue our agitations till this letter of the Railway Board is withdrawn.

With Fraternal Greetings!

Yours faithfully,

No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10

Dated: 22/12/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Benefit of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme to the Pharmacist category-reckoning GP 4200/- (PB-2) as entry Grade Pay for granting financial upgradation under MACPS-reg.
Ref: NFIR’s letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 30/08/2016 addressed to Rly., Bd.

Federation vide its letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 30/08/2016 on the subject invited Board’s attention to the O.M. No. 22011/10/84-Estt. (D) dated 4th February 1992 circulated by DoP&T wherein criteria has been laid down vide Para 2.2 to treat the placement of employees on upgradation to higher replacement scale without higher responsibilities or higher qualification but with higher eligibility service as appointment. In the said communication the case of Pharmacist GP 2800/- (PB-1) to GP 4200/- (PB-2) has been cited which is fully covered under the said instructions of DoP&T. The Federation has accordingly requested the Railway Board to review the case afresh and issue suitable clarification treating the placement of Pharmacist to GP 4200/- as appointment. A period of more than three months has passed, unfortunately neither clarification has been issued nor progress on the action taken has been conveyed to the Federation. A copy of Federation’s communication dated 30/08/2016 is enclosed or ready reference.

NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to kindly consider the points mentioned in Para 2.2 of the DoP&T O.M. dated 4th February 1992 and issue clarification early to the GMs of Zones etc., so that the staff could avail the benefit of MACPS as a result of reckoning entry into the GP 4200/- as appointment. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

No. IV/MACPS/09/Pt.10.

30.08.2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,
Sub: Benefit of financial up-gradation under MACPS to the Pharmacist category – Reckoning GP Rs.4200/-  PB-2 as entry Grade Pay for granting financial up-gradation under MACPS -reg.

Railway Board’s attention is invited to Para 2.2 of DOPT O.M. No. 22011/10/84-Estt(D) dated 4th February, 1992 which is reproduced below:

“2.2. Where the up-gradation involves a higher replacement scale without higher responsibilities or higher qualifications but with a higher eligibility service, the incumbent need not be assessed for their suitability but it should be ensured that they have completed the requisite qualifying service for appointment to the upgraded post. In case they had completed the qualifying service on or before the date notified by the Government, they may be appointed to the upgraded post from that date. In the case of other who fulfill the qualifying service on a later date, they should be appointed to the upgraded post from the date on which they complete the qualifying service. This would be subject to the condition that irrespective of the date of appointment, the original seniority of the incumbent in the grade prior to up-gradation will be maintained for appointment to the upgraded post”.

The Railway Board is aware that those pharmacists who have put in 2 years service in Grade Pay Rs.2800/- (PB-1) were upgraded to the next Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- (PB-2). This up-gradation has to be termed as “appointment” in terms of Para 2.2 of DOP&T O.M. dated 4th February, 1992.

The Railway Board vide letter No.PV/2009/ACP/2 dated 20th April, 2011 addressed to the GMs had however clarified that every financial up-gradation has to be treated as an up-gradation and accordingly placement of Pharmacists in Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- in PB-2 on completion of 2 years regular service in the Grade Pay of Rs.2800/- in PB-1 has been counted/treated as one up-gradation under the MACP Scheme. This clarification of the Railway Board is contrary to Para 2.2 of DOP&T O.M. dated 4th February, 1992. In the said Para 2.2 of DOP&T O.M., it has been clearly stated that where the up-gradation involves only a higher replacement scale without any additional responsibility/higher qualification but with a higher eligibility service, the incumbents need not be assessed for their suitability, but it should be ensured that they have completed the requisite qualifying service for “appointments” to the upgraded post.

The Pharmacists of GP Rs.2800/- (PB-1) have been upgraded to GP Rs.4200/- (PB-2) having fulfilled 2 years service prescribed in the grade pay of Rs.2800/-. Their entry into Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- (PB-2) has to be treated as “appointment” in terms of Para 2.2 of DOP&T O.M. dated 4th February, 1992, thus they are required to be considered for granting financial up-gradations under MACPS.

NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to kindly review the case a fresh and issue clarification, allowing benefit of MACPS to the Pharmacist category duty reckoning entry into the Grade Pay of Rs.4200/- as “appointment”.

(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
