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)

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.

3. This issue with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

4. Hindi Version will follow.

No. IV/MACPS/09/Part II

Dated: 01/03/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Providing opportunity for submitting representation to the employees who have been awarded below “Very Good” Grading in their last three years’ APARs (for the purpose of MACPS-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s letterNo.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 19/01/2017.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No.E(NG)I-2018/CR/2 dated 27/02/2018.

Kind attention is invited to NFIR’S letter No. IV/MACPS /09/Part 10 dated 19/01/2017, responding to which Railway Board have issued instructions vide letter dated,27/02/2015 giving a chance as a onetime measure to represent against the ‘Good’ or below gradings recorded in the APARs of staff pertaining to the years 2014-15 , 2015-16 & 2016-17 .

While appreciating the decision of the Board for granting an opportunity to the staffto submit representations against the awarded gradings of ‘Good’ or below within 30 days from the date of Board’s communication, NFIR desires to convey that in such a large network of Indian Railways, the Board’s communication may not reach on time to the staff working at remote places as the publicity of the administration is also not adequate. Many staff may also
not be aware of the gradings already awarded to them by the controlling authorities.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to kindly reconsider and grant 90 days time from the date of Board’s instructions i.e.27/2/2018, to facilitate staff to prefer appelas, wherever needed. It would also be necessary to advise General Managers of Zonal Railways to arrange to give copy of the gradings awarded to the concemed employees at the earliest. A copy of modified instructions may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully

Grant of financial up gradation under MACPS to SSE-Drawing (formerly Diploma Holder Tracers) appointed against DR quota vacancies as Assistant Draftsman

Grant of financial up gradation under MACPS to SSE-Drawing (formerly Diploma Holder Tracers) appointed against DR quota vacancies as Assistant Draftsman

No. IV/MACPS/09/Pt.II

Dated: 29/01/2018

The Secretary (E)
Railway Board
New Delhi

Dear Sir

Sub: Grant of financial up gradation under MACPS to SSE-Drawing (formerly Diploma Holder Tracers) appointed against DR quota vacancies as Assistant Draftsman-reg.

Ref:

(i) NFIR’s PNM item No.15/52015
(ii) NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Pt.10 dated 7/11/2016.
(iii) Reply receive vide Board’s letter No.PC-V/2015/PNM/NFIR/2 dated 30/05/2017 addressed to GS/NFIR
(iv) NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Pt. 10 dated 19/06/2017.
(v) PCPO/S.C.Rly’s letter No.SCR/P-HQ/510/EE/GM.PNM/SCRES dated 21/11/2017 addressed to Railway Board.

Through the action taken statement provided to the NFIR during the PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14.11.2017, the Railway Board desired to have copies of NFIR’s letters dated 07/11/2016 & 12/04/2017 for further examination of the matter. Accordingly, the NFIR sends herewith copies of its letters dated 7/11/2016 & 12/04/2017 (with enclosures).

Federation re-iterates that pursuant to the demand raised by our affiliate the SCRF Sangh in the GM/PNM meeting, the PCPO, SCRly vide letter dated 21/11/2017 has sent another letter to the Board seeking clarification. A copy of PCPO/S.C.Rly letter dated 21/11/2017 is also enclosed for ready reference.

NFIR once again reiterates following points and facts for taking decision to concede Federation’s demand on S.C.Railay’s cases.

NFIR once again reiterates following points and facts for taking decision to concede Federation’s demand on S.C.Railway’s cases.

The panel of Diploma Holder Tracers to the post Asst. Draftsman against 50% DR qutoa was formed and implemented on 20th Jan, 1984. Para 5.3 of Railway Board’s letter No.PC III/84/UPG/19 dated 25/06/1985 is not applicable to the candidates as they were the empanelled Asst.Draftsman in the year 1984 itself (against DR quota). This connection of the Federation can be verified from the letter dated 21/11/2017 sent by the South Central Railway to Railway Board.

The group of ten employees selected against DR quota were placed above in the seniority list to those promoted against restructured posts pursuant to Board’s destructing decision.

Federation therefore contents that the SSE/Drawing (Former Diploma Holder Tracers) appointed as Asst Draftsman against DR quota vacancies as per Board’s orders have been wrongly denied the benefit of 3rd MACP in GP 4800/-.

NFIR therefore urges upon the Railway Board to review the decision and issue instructions to the Zones etc., for allowing MACP benefit (3rd MACP in GP 4800) to the Diploma Holder Tracers appointed as Asst Draftsman aganist 50% DR qutoa vacancies, duly treating their entry as “appointment”.  A copy of the instructions issued may be endrosed to the Federation.

Sir,

DoP&t vide OM No.35034/3/2015-Estt(D) dated 28.09.2016 had clarified that with effect from 25.07.2016. For grant of financial upgradation under the MACPS, the prescribed benchmark would be “Very Good” for all the posts.

2. The Board has been receiving a number of references from various field formations of CBEC, Associations and individuals on the subject mentioned above, seeking clarification whether the revised benchmark of “Very Good” (w.e.f 25.07.2016) may be applied to ACRs/APARs of 2015-16 and period prior to that, and whether the officers should be given opportunity to represent against the “Good” grading of past ACRs/APARs.

3. The matter has been examined in consultation with DoP&T .DoP&T has opined that there is no question of allowing second opportunity of representation against the APAR which are post 2009 as these are already disclosed to the employees in APAR process. DoP&T vide OM dated 28.09.2016 has implemented the recommendations of 7th CPC. accepted by the Government for enhancing the benchmark for grant of MACP to ‘Very Good’. These instructions are applicable w.e.f 25.07.2016, the date of issue of Government Resolution by D/o Expenditure. Therefore, in cases where the MACP falls due on or after 25.07.2016, the revised benchmark of ‘Very Good’ is to be followed. In other words, the overall grading of the APARs reckonable for grant of MACP should be atleast ‘Very Good’.

Yours faithfully.

Option for pay fixation in the 7 CPC Pay Matrix levels to the Railway employees during the period 01/01/2016 to 25/07/2017

No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/RB-Part II

Dated: 04/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Option for pay fixation in the 7 CPC Pay Matrix levels to the Railway employees during the period 01/01/2016 to 25/07/2017-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Ministry’s Notification vide RBE No. 90/2016 dated 29/07/2016.

(ii)     Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/1/6/2 dated 20/10/2016 – RBE No. 124/2016.

(iii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC (Imp)/2016/RB-Part I dated 16/01/2017 & 07/08/2017.

(iv)    Railway Board’s reply to NFIR vide No. PC-VII/2017/R-U/7 dated 31/03/2017.

Further to the above cited references, Federation has since found that on Zonal Railways, option 2 given by staff had not been accepted on the wrong plea that option opportunity has been allowed to those promoted/got financial upgradation under MACPS/got increment during the period 01/01/2016 and 28/07/2016 (i.e. date of notification). In this connection, Federation cites below the following instances as example:

(i)  Employees promoted between 29/07/2016 to 28/10/2016 and exercised option for fixation of pay in 7th CPC within the stipulated period electing option No. 2.

The pay of the Technicians GP 2800/Level 5 on promotion as Sr. Technicians GP 4200/Level 6 on 27/10/2016 has been fixed in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix as shown vide ‘A’ below whereas pursuant to option No. 2 exercised by staff, they are entitled for pay fixation on promotion as shown vide ‘B’ below:

Pay in 6th CPC as on 01/01/2016 GP 2800 Pay Revised & fixed in 7th CPC
w.e.f. 01/01/2016
Pay in 7th CPC as on 27/10/2016  Pay in 6th CPC
when continued
upto 27/10/2016
Pay in 6th CPC on promotion to GP 4200 as on 27/10/2016 Pay required tofixed in 7th CPC taking into account option
12970 34900 35900 13360
(10560+2800)
15160
(10960+4200)
39900

Unfortunately, the staff have been denied their legitimate pay fixation benefit even after submission of their correct option in time.

(ii)  Another aberration is that in the case of Technicians who have been granted cadre restructuring w.e.f. 01/09/2016 vide RBE No. 116/2016, the Zonal Railways have issued promotion orders belatedly while at the same time, option opportunity not allowed, consequently pay fixation has been granted vide ‘A’ below instead granting pay fixation benefit (on the basis of re-option) as ‘B’ below:

Pay in 6th CPC as on 01/01/2016 Pay Revised &
fixed in 7th CPC
as on 01/01/2016
Pay in 7th CPC as on 01/09/2016 in L5 Pay in 6th CPC when continued till 31/08/2016 Pay in 6th CPC on promotion in GP 4200 as on 01/09/2016 Pay    to   be    fixed
with option in 7th CPC in L6
15210 39200 40400 15670
(12870+2800)
17540
(13340+4200)
46,200

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the above situations and issue clear clarificatory instructions, granting pay fixation benefit on the basis of re-option being exercised by staff as per charts ‘B’ above.NFIR contends that in as much as promotion allowed w.e.f. 01/09/2016, such staff are entitled for option opportunity in terms of RBE No. 90/2016 and 124/2016.

MACPS anomaly as a result of implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels

MACPS anomaly as a result of implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels

N.F.I.R.
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

No.IV/MACPS/09/Pt.11
Dated: 10/08/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: MACPS anomaly as a result of implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels – reg.

NFIR gives below an illustration relating to no benefit in certain situations where the employee is granted MACP – rectification requested.

In the existing pay matrix the stages of pay are same in most of the levels such as level 2 & 3, 6 & 7 , 7 & 8 etc. In this situation, if an employee is upgraded under MACP from one level to another level, his pay will be almost (Exactly) same as he may have drawn even without receiving the benefit under MACP.

Illustration:

Existing pay level 7
Existing pay in pay level 7 (cell 11) 60400

MACP Pay level 8
MACP Pay fixed in level 8 (cell 10) 62200
Pay in level 7 with one inc. (Cell 12) 62200

The Federation requests the Railway Board to get the matter reviewed for ensuring adequate financial benefit as provided in Railway Board’s letter dated 10.06.2009 relating to the policy on MACP Scheme.

Federation may be replied on the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr M. Raghavaiah)

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,

Sirs,

Sub:- Recommendations of 7th CPC on benchmark for the purpose of MACPS – clarification reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR’s letter No.IV/MACPS/09/Part 10, dt. 23.01.2017 and AIRF’s letter No.AIRF/MACPS (848), dt. 17.03.2017 on the above subject.The matter has been consulted with DoPT, the nodal department of Govt. on the subject and DoPT have stated that 7th CPC in para 5.1.45 of its report recommended that the benchmark, in the interest of improving performance level, be enhanced from ‘Good’ to ‘Very Good’. In addition, introduction of more stringent criteria such as clearing of departmental examinations or mandatory training before grant of MACP can also be considered by the Government. This recommendation of the Pay Commission has been accepted by the Cabinet. Hence, withdrawal of DoPT’s OM dt. 28.09.2016 is not feasible.

As DoPT is nodal department of Govt. for the purpose of MACPS, this Ministry is not in position to deviate from the instructions issued by them.

Anti-labour steps of the Railway Board (Ministry of Railways)

Anti-labour steps of the Railway Board (Ministry of Railways)

No.AIRF/24(C)

Dated: March 7, 2017

The General Secretaries,
All Affiliated Unions

Dear Comrades!
Sub: Anti-labour steps of the Railway Board (Ministry of Railways)

In the DC/JCM Meeting, held today with the Railway Board, AIRF strongly lodged its protest against anti-labour steps of the Railway Board(Ministry of Railways) in general and encroachment on trade union rights by way of issuing orders dated 30.01.2017, in particular, debarring the Supervisory Staff, belonging to Safety Category, working in Grade Pay of Rs.4200 and above from becoming officebearers of the railway unions.

General Secretary AIRF, while expressing his anguish on the attitude of the Ministry of Railways, also pointed out that, despite already arrived at agreements on the following issues, Railway Board have failed to issue instructions for implementation thereof despite lapse of substantial period of time:-

(i) Upgradation of apex level Group ‘C’ staff to Group ‘B’ Gazetted.
(ii) Placement of the Supervisors in the erstwhile Grade Pay of Rs.4800 in place of GP Rs.4600 .
(iii) Non-implementation of the agreed structure of the Trackmen in the ratio of 10:20:20:50 and
their promotional avenue.
(iv) Stepping-up of pay of the Loco Inspectors.
(v) Issues related to Running Staff, already agreed upon in the Fast Track Committee.
(vi) For financial upgradation under MACPS and regular promotions, existing Benchmark(prior to VII CPC) should continue.
(vi) Regularization of Course Completed Act Apprentices, trained in Railway Establishments, in the Railways, etc. etc.

General Secretary, while expressing serious discontentment over these issues specifically, mentioned that, Ministry of Railways is directly interfering in the functioning of the trade union by issuing dictatorial instructions, which AIRF and the entire Staff Side is not going to tolerate, and that is why, meeting of the DC/JCM is bycotted.

Pursuant to the above, it has been jointly decided by both the recognized federations to launch undernoted agitational programme all over the Indian Railways:-

(a) 16th March, 2017 – Mass agitations, dharnas, demonstrations at the Branch and Depot levels.

(b) 23rd March, 2017 – Mass agitations by holding dharnas, demonstrations, rallies at the Divisional level.

(c) 30th March, 2017 – Massive demonstrations at the Zonal Headquarters, wherein memorandum addressed to Minister of Railways be handed over to the respective GMs, mentioning therein that, if no corrective action is taken by the Ministry of Railways, organized labour shall be at liberty to go for direct action, entire responsibility of which shall squarely rest with the Railway administration.

All of you are requested to take appropriate action accordingly, and report of the same may be forwarded to AIRF for better appreciation.

With Good Wishes of Holi!

Comradely yours,

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

NFIR
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

Affiliated to :
Indian National Trade Union Congress (INTUC)
International Transport Workers Federation (ITF)

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,
(Dr. M.Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
