Implementation of recommendations of Seventh Central Pay Commission accepted by the Government – Payment of National Holiday Allowance to non-gazetted Staff in Pay Level 9 and 10 on Indian Railways

No. V/5(g)/Part VI

Dated: 20/10/2017

The Member Staff
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir.

Sub: Implementation of recommendations of Seventh Central Pay Commission accepted by the Government – Payment of National Holiday Allowance to non-gazetted Staff in Pay Level 9 and 10 on Indian Railways-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A[-2017/HL/1 dated 30/08/2017.

 

Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to their letter dated 3010812017, quoted under reference, wherein instructions have been for payment of National Holiday Allowance to the non-gazetted staff in Level-l to Level-8 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix. Federation however points out that the said instructions do not cover those non-gazetted Railway employees working in Level-9 and above (erstwhile GP 5400).

 

In this connection, Federation desires to mention that large number of non-gazetted Railway employees have been working in Level-9 and above, but have now been deprived payment of National Holiday Allowance as a result of issuance of Board’s instructions dated 30/0812017. Incidentally, Federation desires to mention that these staff (Level 9 and 10) are fully covered for payment of National Holiday Allowance as they fulfill the conditions laid down vide Board’s policy instructions contained in letter No. E(P&A)I-97/HL/2 dated 1810211998, therefore exclusion of these staff for payment of National Holiday Allowance is not justified.

 

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue amendment to the Board’s instructions dated 30th August, 201,7 duly covering the non-gazetted staff working in Level-9 and above for payment of National Holiday Allowance. A copy of revised instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

 

Yours faithfully,
sd/-
(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
