Dear Sir,

Sub: Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held posts below Commissioned Officer Rank in Defence Forces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts in Railways etc – reg.

Ref: (i) General Secretary/NFIR’s letter No. I1/35/Part XIV dated 29/01/2018 addressed to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India.
(ii) PMO ID No. PMOPG/D/2018/0044515 dated 02/02/2018 addressed to the Secretary, DoP&T and copy to the Federation.

The Federation desires to invite kind attention of the DoP&T to the reference made by the General Secretary, NFIR vide letter No. II/35/Part XIV dated 29/01/2018 (addressed to the Hon’ble Prime Minister) on the subject matter, the same has however, been forwarded by the PMO vide ID No. PMOPG/D/2018/0044515 dated 02/02/2018 for taking further action and conveying the outcome to the Federation.

In this connection, Federation once again brings to the notice of the DoP&T that injustice is being meted out to the former Defence Forces Personnel (PBORs), reemployed in Railways and other Central services on account of the fact that the pay drawn by them at the time of retirement from Defence Forces (prior to attaining 55 years age) has not been protected on their re-employment, while those retired Defence Forces Personnel on re-employment in the Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) of Central/State Governments have been granted the benefit of pay fixation on the last pay drawn at the time of retirement from Armed Forces. The discrimination has resulted disappointment and frustration among the reemployed retired Armed Forces Personnel in Railways and Central Civil Services.

This subject was dealt by the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), at the level of Railway Ministry in the negotiating fora of PNM, demanding pay re-fixation in favour of re-employed Defence Forces Personnel on the basis of last pay drawn more particularly those who have been re-employed on and after 01/01/2006. On a reference made by Railway Ministry vide O.M. No. E(G)2013/EM 1-5 dated 07/12/2016, the DoP&T had however not agreed for reckoning last pay drawn for pay re-fixation on re-employment in railways. The Federation encloses a copy of Railway Ministry OM dated 07/12/2016 to the DoP&T and reply thereon received from DoP&T vide OM dated 21/02/2017.

Federation also states that DoP&T vide OM dated 18th Oct 2017 called for suggestions for finding single methodology for pay re-fixation of all the ex-servicemen including PBORs, commissioned officers, ex-competent clerks/storemen, NFIR vide letter of even no. dated 21/12/2017 has submitted valid suggestions to the Secretary, Ministry of Defence, Dept of Ex-Servicemen, Welfare, South Block, New Delhi, as follows:-

(a) Considering the crucial role of Defence Forces Personnel in safeguarding the Nation’s borders, they be given pay fixation on the basis of their last pay drawn on re-employment in the Railways and other Central Government Departments.

(b) Their pension needs to be totally ignored as the pension is the social security net provided in recognition to their loyal services to the nation.

(c) The PBORs are not the Personnel of high rankings with higher wages, therefore their case needs to be considered with sympathy and their last pay drawn at the time of retirement from armed forces, to be treated as entry pay on re-employment in Railways and Central Government Departments.

(d) Alternatively, the number of years service rendered by the PBORs in Armed Forces be taken into account for granting pay fixation duly adding the quantum of equal number of increments to the minimum pay of the re-employed post. This may be made applicable to all PBORs who have joined Central Government Departments after 01/01/2006.

(e) In those cases of PBORs retired before attaining the age of 55 years and got re-employment in Government services, their initial pay on re-employment may be fixed at the minimum of the scale of pay prescribed for the post and after fixing the pay, in case the initial pay so fixed, is found to be less than the last pay drawn in the Armed Forces, all such cases may be treated as “cases of undue hardship” and in those cases, their pay may be re-fixed at higher stage duly granting one increment for each year of service rendered in the Armed Forces in order to bring their initial pay at par with the pre-retirement pay, while their pension already drawn be continued un-altered.

NFIR, therefore, requests to kindly see that the above legitimate request of former Defence Forces Personnel is agreed to and orders issued soon. Federation also requests to kindly communicate the action taken in the matter early.

DA/As above

Yours sincerely,
S/d,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

Pay Fixation on Promotion or MACP as per FR22(I)(a)(1) after 7th Pay Commission is regulated by the Rule13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2016. This Rule regulates the Pay Fixation on Promotion or MACP to all Central Government Employees to permit to fix their pay on the date of promotion itself and also opts to pay fixation from the Date of Next Increment (DNI).

Pay Fixation on Promotion Date: A Government servant is promoted, will first be given one increment in the current level. Then he will be placed, equal to or next higher matrix pay in the promoted level.

Pay Fixation on Increment Date: A Government servant may allowed to fix his pay from the Date of his Next Increment (either 1st July or 1st January) as per recommendations of 7th Pay Commission. A Government servant is promoted, then, from the date of promotion till his Increment Date (either 1st July or 1st January), he shall be placed at the next higher cell in the promoted level. And then, on Increment Date his pay will be re-fixed and 2 increments (One Annual Increment and another Promotional Increment) will be granted in the same level, and he will be placed at the next higher cell in the promoted level.

Re-fixation of pay of Running Staff in 7th CPC pay level

Re-fixation of pay of Running Staff in 7th CPC pay level-reg.

NFIR

 No.I/2/Part IV

Dated: 02/04/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

 

Dear Sir,
Sub: Re-fixation of pay of Running Staff in 7th CPC pay level-reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 05/2017.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/IC/2 dated 21/08/2017 (RBE No. 99/2017)
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. I/2/Part IV dated 20/02/2018.
(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VIII/2017/R-U/37 dated 07/03/2018 addressed to GS/NFIR.

With reference to reply received from Railway Board vide letter dated 07/03/2018. Federation cites below the specific cases where the running staff promoted during the period July and December, 2016 have not been granted pay re-fixation duly obtaining their option.

 

(i) On Raipur Division of South East Central Railway, 53 Guard (Goods) PB-I + GP 2800/- were promoted to Senior Guard (Goods) in PB-2 + GP 4200/- on dated 29/07/2016. A copy of notification issued by the Sr. DPO, Raipur Division on 27/07/2016 is enclosed as Annexure to this letter.

 

(ii) Similarly, 127 Assistant Loco Pilot in PB-I + GP 2400/- were promoted to Loco Pilot (Goods) PB-2 + GP 4200/- on 08th December, 2016 on Kota Division on West Central Railway.

 

Federation also visualizes that there might be similar cases of Running and other category staff on the different Divisions/Zones where the re-option opportunity not given, resulting loss of fixation benefit.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that in the above situations, the staff were eligible to be continued in the 6th CPC grade pay on promotion and equally opt for a date from which, they should be switched over to 7th CPC pay. These staff when submitted their options to the respective Administrations, they were denied the pay fixation after promotion date, though permissible under the rules. Cases cited above are sufficient to prove that injustice has been done to those promoted in between July and December, 2016 by denying option for pay fixation in 7th CPC pay level after the date of promotion.

 

NFIR therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to issue clear; classificatory instructions to the Zones, Production Units etc for allowing pay re-fixation in respect of staff who have been promoted during July-December, 2016 on the basis of their option/re-option.

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

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

2. In 6th CPC regime pay fixation on promotion in respect of Defence Services Personnel was governed by provisions contained in SAI-2008, SAFI-2008 and SNI-2008. These provisions regulates pay fixation on promotion, wherein an Officer has an option to get his pay fixed in the higher post either from the date of his promotion or from the date of next increment. Similarly, consequent upon implementation of ih CPC, the pay fixation on promotion from the date of promotion is regulated by Rule 12 of the Army Pay Rules 2017, Air Force Pay Rules 2017 and Navy Pay Regulations 2017 dated 3.5.2017 in respect of Officers and JCOs/OR equivalent.

3. After due consideration in this matter, the following is decided as follows:

Next Increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) accruing in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, except in cases of appointment on deputation basis to an ex-cadre post or on direct recruitment basis or appointment/promotion on ad-hoc basis, as applicable in the Defence Services.

(ii) In case, consequent upon his/her promotion, the Defence Personnel opts to have his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) in the Level of the post from which Defence Personnel is promoted, then, from the date of promotion till his/her  DNI, the Defence Personnel shall be placed at the next higher cell in the level of the post to which he/she is promoted.

Illustration:

1. Level in the revised pay structure: Level 4 Pay Band 5200 – 20200
2. Basic Pay in the revised structure: 29600 Grade pay 2000 2400 2800
3. Granted promotion in Level 5. Levels 3 4 5

(iii) Subsequently, on DNI in the level of the post to which Defence Personnel is promoted, his/her Pay will be re-fixed and two increments (one accrued on account of annual increment and the second accrued on account of promotion) may be granted in the Level from which the Defence Personnel is promoted and he/she shall be placed, at a Cell equal to the figure so arrived, in the Level of the post to which he/she is promoted; and if no such Cell is available in the Level to which he/she is promoted, he/she shall be placed at the next higher Cell in that Level.

1. Level in the revised pay structure: Level 4 Pay Band 5200 – 20200

Illustration:

(iv) In such cases where Defence Personnel opts to have his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, the next increment as well as Date of Next Increment (DNI) will be regulated accordingly.

  1. It is further reiterated that in order to enable the officials to exercise the option within the time limit prescribed, the option clause for pay fixation on promotion with effect from date of promotion/ON I shall invariably be incorporated in the promotion/appointment order, as per applicability, so that there are no cases of delay in exercising the options due to administrative lapse.
  2. This issues with the concurrence of Ministry of Finance vide their 1D No. 4-23/2017-IC/E.III (A) dated 22.3.2018.

PERMISSION TO OPTION FOR PAY FIXATION IN THE REVISED PAY STRUCTURE ON A DATE AFTER THE DATE OF ISSUE OF CCS (REVISED PAY) RULES 2016

Option for Pay Fixation in Revised Pay Scale: Confederation

PERMISSION TO OPT FOR PAY FIXATION IN THE REVISED PAY STRUCTURE ON A DATE AFTER THE DATE OF ISSUE OF CCS (REVISED PAY) RULES 2016 NOTIFICATION DATED 25.07.2016 DEMAND OF THE JCM NATIONAL COUNCIL STAFF SIDE REJECTED BY GOVERNMENT.

JCM national council, Staff Side, has demanded that under the existing orders the option to come over to revised pay structure from the date of promotion is available only for those employees who are promoted before 25.07.2016. The staff side has demanded that such an option of fixation of pay for coming over to revised pay scale may be given to employees promoted after 25.07.2016 also. The staff side has contended that not giving such an option to an employee who was due for promotion on a date after 25.07.2016 (say on 26.07.2016) will be discriminatory. Government has considered the demand and rejected. The following is the reply of the Finance Ministry, Department of Expenditure.

(M. Krishnan)
Secretary General
Confederation
Mob: 09447068125
Email: mkrishnan6854@gmail.com

DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE VIDE OM DATED 30.08.2017

The position on action taken in respect of item regarding permission to opt for pay fixation in the revised pay structure on a date after the issue of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 (notification on 25.07.2016) in the case of employees whose promotion becomes due after 25.07.2016 is given below:

In the said item the staff side has demanded that under the existing orders the option to come over to revised pay scale from the date of promotion is available only for those employees who are promoted before 25.07.2016, the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016. The staff side has demanded that such an option of fixation of pay for coming over to revised pay scale may be given to employees promoted after 25.07.2016 also. The staff side has contended that not giving such an option to an employee who was due for promotion on 26.07.2016 (one day after the date of notification) and afterwards will be discriminatory.

The revised Pay rules contained in CCS (RP) Rules 2016 are effective from 01.01.2016. A person holding a particular post as on 01.01.2016 has an option to come over to revised pay scale applicable to that post either straight away on 01.01.2016 or from a date later than that such an option is clearly mentioned in provisio 1 and provisio 2 of Rule 5. A combined reading of provisio 1 and provisio 2 to Rule 5 provided that 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.

But, in cases where a Government servant has been placed in a higher grade pay or scale between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 on account of promotion or upgradation, the Government servant may elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion or upgradation.

Therefore the rules provide while in respect of post held by a Government Servant as on 01.01.2016, the concerned Government Servant may elect to come over to revised pay scale applicable to that post either from 01.01.2016 or from a date later than 01.01.2016, in case he is promoted to a post not held by him on 01.01.2016 on a date later than that, then he can opt to come over to revised pay scale from the date of promotion provided such promotion takes place between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification. Thus the date of notification of the Rules on 25.07.2016 which are effective from 01.01.2016 is the outer limit for option in cases the option is from date of promotion. The similar was the provisions in the Rules pertaining to the 6th CPC in terms of CCs (RP) Rules 2008. This is the fair and time tested rule, as it seeks to allow option in case of promotion during the retrospective effect of the Rules. There has to be outer date and that date is the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016, which is objective and of fair application. No such objective date beyond 25.07.2016 could be of fair application.

Accordingly it is not possible to agree to the demand of the staff-side.

Shri Gyanendra Dev Tripathi,
Jt. Secretary (E)
Department of Personnel & Training,
North Block, New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Kindly refer to the discussion, the Staff Side had with you on 12.1.2018 in the National Anomaly Committee meeting. During the discussion, over the admissibility or otherwise of the anomaly items, incidentally, we had represented to the request made by us to allow the employees to revise their option once exercised under Rule 6 of the Revised Pay Rules 2016. We send herewith copy of our communications sent to the Secretary Expenditure in this regard.

As has been pointed out by us, in our letter cited, the interpretation of the benefit of option had been at variance with consequent loss of emoluments to the employees. The intention of the Rules are often ambiguous. In similar situation both at the time of 5th CPC and 6th CPC on our request the Govt. had been good enough to permit revision of option. In the case of 6th CPC the Notification was issued in 2008 (in September 2008) and the option was allowed to be revised up to 31/12/2010, giving benefit for all employees who were promoted / granted ACP / MACP or granted increment up to 31/12/2010.

We therefore request you to kindly allow revision of option to switch over to 7th CPC pay scales / pay matrix to be exercised within three months of the issuance of the orders permitting such revision.

Yours faithfully,

Subject: Pay and allowances of Retired/Released Armed Forces Officers on re-Employment in the Armed Forces

Sir,

The pay fixation of re-employed officers on re-employment in Armed forces, is being done in accordance with this Department’s letter No.1/69/2008/D(Pay/Services) dated 24 July 2009. Officers re-employed in Defence services after retirement have been excluded from the purview of the Army/Navy/Air Force Officers Pay Rules/Regulations, 2017 vide Rule 2 thereof. The question of extension of the benefit of the revised pay rules to these officers and the procedure to be followed for fixing their pay in the revised pay structure has been considered by the Government. The president is pleased to decide that the pay fixation in respect of the Officers who were in/came into re-employment on or after 1st January,2016 will be done in accordance with the provisions contained in this order. This order will cover all re-employed officers on re-employment in Armed Forces.

2. Exercise of Option: Re-employed officers who become eligible to elect revised pay structure in accordance with these orders should exercise their option in the manner laid down in Rule 5 and Rule 6 of the Army/Navy/Air Force Officers Pay Rules/Regulations, 2017,within one hundred and eighty days from the date of issue of these orders or in cases where the existing scales of pay of the posts held by them are revised subsequent to the issue of these within one hundred and eighty days of the date of such order. This facility of option is avilable to the re-employed officers who were re-employed before 1.1.2016 only.

Fixation / drawal of pay of Officers re-employed prior to 01.01.2016 and who were in re-employment as on 01.01.2016:

3. (a) The initial pay of a re-employed officer who elects or is deemed to have elected to be governed by the revised structure from the 1st day of January, 2016 shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions contained in Rule 7 of the Army/Navy/Air Force Officers Pay Rules/ Regulations, 2017. Revised Pension (excluding the ignorable portion of pension,if any), as admissible on relevant date of coming over to the revised pay structure,effective from 1.1.2016 or later, shall be deducted from his/her pay in accordance with the general policy of the Government on fixation and subsequent drawal of pay of re-employed Officers. Revised Military Service Pay and Dearness Allowance thereon shall be payable from 1.1.2016.

(b) In addition to the pay so fixed, the re-employed officer would continue to draw the retirement benefits he / she was permitted to draw in the pre-revised scales, as modified based on the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission, orders in respect of which have been issued separately by the Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare.

(c) In the case of persons who were already on re-employment as on 01.01.2016, the pay may be fixed on the basis of these orders, with effect from the date of coming over to the new pay structure, i.e. 01.01.2016 or later, as per the option exercised by them in terms of para 2 above. In such cases, their term would be determined afresh as if they have been re-employed for the first time from such date of coming over to the new Pay Structure.

4. Officers Re-employed on or after 01-01-2016

Officers who are re-employed on or after 1-1-2016 shall be allowed to draw pay only in the revised Pay Structure.

(a) Officers who Retired from pre-revised scales of pay and were re-employed in the Revised Pay Structure.

The initial pay shall be fixed in the revised pay structure in accordance with Rule 7 of Army/Navy/Air Force Officers Pay Rules/Regulation 2017 read with para 5 below, with reference to the rank held at the time of retirement. Military Service Pay and Dearness Allowance thereon shall be payable from 1-1-2016. However, an amount equivalent to the revised pension (excluding the ignorable portion of pension) effective from 1-1-2016 or after shall be deducted from his pay so fixed in accordance with the general policy of the Govt on fixation of pay of re-employed officers.

(b) Officers who retired and are re-employed in the Revised Scale of pay.

The initial pay in the Level (read with Para 5 below) shall be fixed at the same cell in the Level as the last pay drawn. Military Service Pay and Dearness Allowance thereon shall be payable from 1-1-2016. Having fixed the Pay in the manner indicated, an amount equivalent to the revised pension (excluding the ignorable portion of pension) effective from 1-1-2016 or after shall be deducted from his pay so fixed in accordance with the general policy of the Govt on fixation of pay of re-employed officers.

5. Pay in the Level. In the case of retired Armed Forces Officers (a) who were re-employed before 01.01.2016 (b) who retired from pre-revised pay scales and were re-employed on or after 01.01.2016 in the revised pay structure, and (c) who retired and are re-employed in the revised pay structure, on their re-employment in the Armed Forces, the pay of the officers will be fixed by granting them the pay in the Level of the rank held by them at the time of their retirement or Level of Colonel (Time Scale)’s pay whichever is lower.

Ignorable part of Pension

6. The President is also pleased to enhance the ignorable part of pension from Rs. 4000/- to Rs.15,000/- (Rupees Fifteen Thousand only) in the case of Commissioned Service Officers who retire before attaining the age of 55 years. The existing limits of military pensions to be ignored in fixing the pay of re-employed Officers will therefore, cease to be applicable to cases of such Officers who are re-employed on or after 1-1-2016. As Brigadiers retire at the age of 56 years they will not be eligible for ignorable portion of pension.

Drawal of increments

7. Once the initial pay of the re-employed officer has been fixed in the manner indicated above, he will be allowed to draw normal increments as per the provisions of Rule 9 and 10 of Army/ / Air Force/ Navy Officers Pay Rules/ Regulations, 2017.

8. Further, the existing ceiling of Rs. 80,000/- for drawal of pay plus gross pension on reemployment is enhanced to Rs.2,25,000/-, i.e. the pay plus MSP @Rs.15,500/- plus gross pension should not exceed the ceiling of Rs.2,25,000 pm, the maximum basic pay prescribed for officers in Level 17 under Army/Navy/Air Force Officers Pay Rules/Regulations, 2017.

9. Allowances: The drawal of various allowances and other benefits in the revised structure based on pay shall be regulated with reference to pay that is fixed on re-employment. Pay for these allowances will be the pay fixed before deducting the pension.

10. Gratuity/Death cum Retirement Gratuity – The re-employed officers shall not be eligible for any gratuity/Death cum Retirement Gratuity for the period of re-employment.

11. Some illustrations to cater for pay fixation in various situations arising are given in Appendix ‘A’ to this letter.

12. These Orders shall take effect from 1.1.2016. These Orders supersede the existing orders on the subject.

13. An undertaking may be obtained from re-employed officers who opt / are deemed to have opted for the revised pay structure to the effect that, they understand and agree that the special dispensation provided through this order is subject to the condition of deduction of pension as admissible to them from time to time, where ever required as per extant instructions and also to recovery in case of over-payment made, if any.

Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer Rank in Defence Forces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts in Railways etc

Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer Rank in Defence Forces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts in Railways etc

No. II/35/Part XIV

Dated: 21/12/2017

The Secretary,
Ministry of Defence,
Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare,
[D(Res-I)],
South Block,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer Rank in Defence Forces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts in Railways etc., – reg.

Ref: DoP&T OM F.No. 3/3/2016-Estt. (Pay-II) dated 18th October, 2017.

The Defence Forces Personnel (PBORs) have been put to grave injustice as their last pay drawn at the time of retirement from Defence Forces has not been protected on their re-employment in the Central Government Departments (Railways etc.,).

However, such of those Defence Forces Personnel retired from the Defence Forces and got re-employed in the Public Sector undertakings in the country have the benefit of pay fixation on last pay drawn at the time of their retirement from the Armed Forces. This reveals that the Force Personnel re-employed in the Railways and other Central Government Departments have been discriminated against.

The National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), a premier Federation of Railway’employees had taken up the subject matter at the level of Railway Ministry in one of the PNM meetings, demanding pay re-fixation in favour of re-employed Defence Forces Personnel on the basis of last pay drawn particularly those who were re-employed on and after 01/01/2006. Conceding the Federation’s demand, the Railway Ministry vide OM No. E(G)2013/EM 1-5 dated 07/12/2016 had sent proposal to the DoP&T, but however, the same was turned down. In this connection, Federation encloses a copy of Railway Ministry OM dated 07/12/2016 addressed to DoP&T together with the reply received from DoP&T vide OM No. 1213833/2016-Estt. (Pay-II) dated 21St February 2017.

The NFIR has now learnt that the DoP&T vide OM F.No. 3/3/2016-Estt. (Pay-II) dated 18th October, 2017 has sent proposal to the Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare, (Sena Bhawan) South Block, New Delhi, suggesting that single methodology for pay fixation of all the re-employed pensioners including the PBORs, Commissioned Officers, Ex-Combatant Clerks/Storeman etc., needs to be evolved, superseding the previous instructions contained in DoP&T OM dated 31st July 1986. The Department of Ex-Servicemen Welfare, is consulting the re-employed Defence Forces Personnel for eliciting their views before sending its views to DoP&T for its consideration.

NFIR now suggests to the Ministry of Defence to consider, the following valid points for taking up the matter with the DoP&T:

 

(a) Considering the role of Defence Forces Personnel for safeguarding the Nation’s integration, these personnel deserve to be given pay fixation on the basis of their last pay drawn on re-employment in the Railways and other Central Government Departments.

(b) Their pension needs to be totally ignored as the pension is the social security net in recognition to their loyal services to the nation.

(c) The PBORs are not the Personnel of high rankings with higher wages, therefore their case needs to be considered with greater sympathy and for the said reason their last pay drawn at the time of retirement needs to be treated as entry pay on re-employment in Railways and Central Government Departments.

(d) Alternatively, the number of years service rendered by the PBORs in Armed Forces be taken into account for granting pay fixation duly adding equal number of increments to the minimum pay of the re-employed post. This can be made applicable to all PBORs who have joined Central Government Departments after 01/01/2006.

(e) It is also proposed that in those cases of PBORs retired before attaining the age of 55 years and got re-employed in Government services, their initial pay on re-employment may be fixed at the minimum of the scale of pay prescribed for the post and after fixing the pay, in case the initial pay so fixed, is found to be less than the last pay drawn in the Armed Forces, all such cases may be treated as “cases of undue hardship” and in those cases, their pay may be re-fixed at higher stage duly granting one increment for each year of service rendered in the Armed Forces so as to bring their initial pay at par with the pre-retirement pay. However, the pension already drawn by these. Personnel need not be meddled with.

NFIR trusts that the above suggestions may kindly be considered for inclusion in the proposal to be sent to the DoP&T. We shall be grateful if copy of the proposal sent to DoP&T is made available to the Federation to enable us to follow up the matter.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub: Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer rank in Defence Forces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts – Regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to a demand by the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), a recognised Federation of Railwaymen, who have requested that the initial pay of non-commissioned ex-servicemen (PBOR) who are re-employed on the Railways should be fixed by taking into account the service rendered by them in the Defence Forces. They are insisting that the fixation done in the minimum of the scale of the re-employed post should be according to the procedure laid down in para 4 (b) (ii) of DOP&T’s OM s dated 31/7/86 as amended vide OM dated 11th November 2008, 5th April 2010 & 8th November, 2010. The Federation states that the content of these OMs clearly states that the Pay of re-employed former Defence Forces Personnel should be fixed as per Rule 7 of CCS (RP) Rules 2008 i.e. at the same stage of their last basic pay drawn at the time of retirement i.e. allowing one increment (in the post held at the time of retirement) for each year of service the ex-servicemen has rendered at the time of retirement with the proviso that the pay thus fixed does not exceed:

(a) the pay drawn prior to retirement for non-commissioned officer of all three forces like Army, Navy and Air Force (Sub para 2 (ix) of Para 3 & Para 4 (b) (ii) of OM dated 31st July 1986 are relevant).

(b) Para 5 of DoP&T’s OM No. 3/13/2008-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 11th November, 2008 stipulated enhancement of existing ceiling of Rs. 26000/- for drawal of pay plus gross pension on re-employment to Rs. 80,000/- p.m.

2. However, their attention was drawn to the provisions in DOP&T’s OM No.3/1/85-Estt.(pay-II) dated 31st July 1986 and OM NO. 3/19/2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 5th April 2010, governing initial pay fixation, inter alia, of re-employed ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer-rank in Defence Forces and retired before attaining the age of 55 year and have been appointed on re-employment basis in the Railways. As per these orders, the initial pay of such re-employed pensioners is to be fixed in terms of provisions of Central Civil Services (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986 issued by Department of Personnel and Training vide OM No. 3/1/85-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 31/7/1986 as amended from time to time.

3. It is to be seen that revised provision contained in Para 2 of OM dated 5th April 2010 revising the contents of Para 4(d)(i) of CCS (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986 provides that in case of ex-servicemen who held post below Commissioned Officer rank in the Defence Forces and in the case of civilians who held posts below Group ‘A’ posts at the time of their retirement before 55 years of age, the entire pension and pension equivalent of retirement benefits shall be ignored, i.e. no deduction on this count is to be made from the initial pay fixed on re-employment. Also, in terms of the Para 4(a) and Para 4(b)(i) of CCS (Fixation of Pay of Re-employed Pensioners) Orders, 1986, as amended vide DOP&T’s OM No. 3/19/2009-Estt.(Pay.II) dated 5/4/2010, the initial pay on re-employment of such pensioners shall be fixed as per the entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re-employed post applicable in the case of Direct Recruits appointed on or after 1/1/2006 as notified vide Section II, Part A of First Schedule to CCS(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. As is explicit, these instructions do not provide for protection of last pay drawn before retirement, in such cases. Therefore, the fixation of pay of re-employed ex-servicemen is being done accordingly on the Railways.

4. However, the Federation does not agree with the above contention and desires that the pay of ex-Defence Forces personnel re-employed in Railways should be fixed in accordance with the clarification issued vide DoP&T’s OM dated 5th April, 2010 in Para 3 (iv) & (v) which contain clarifications duly stating that the pay of the ex-servicemen, re-employed in the Central Government Organizations will be fixed in accordance with the provision contained in DoP&T’s OM No. 3/13/2008-Estt.(pay-II) dated 11/11/2008 after exercising option in the manner laid down in Rule 6 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 and the fixation of pay is to be regulated in accordance with the provisions of Rule 7 of CCS (RP) Rules 2008.

The Federation has further pointed out that the initial pay of a re-employed military pensioner and a direct recruit cannot be the same in view of the fact that the pay of the re-employed Defence Forces Pensioner is to be done as per the provisions of Rule 7 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 as mentioned in the DoP&T’s OM dated 11/11/2008 and not under Rule 8 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 applicable to direct recruits – the two entrants being independent and have no co-relation with each other.

5. After protracted correspondence and discussion of the issue between NFIR and the concerned of this Ministry, as NFIR are still not convinced with the official stand on this issue and insisting on implementation of Para 3 (iv) and (v) of DoP&T’s O.M. Dated 5/4/2010. Hence, it was decided to refer the matter to DOPT for clarification.

6. In the light of the position as brought out above, DOP&T are requested to clarify specifically as to whether the contention of NFIR that – the pay of non – commissioned ex-servicemen (PBOR) who retire from the Defence Forces before attaining the age of 55 years, and are subsequently re-employed on the Railways should be fixed by taking into account the service rendered by them and last pay drawn in the Defence Forces, is in order, or the procedure being followed on the Railways i.e. fixing the pay of such re-employed ex-servicemen as per the entry pay in the revised pay structure of the re-employed post applicable in the case of Direct Recruits appointed on or after 1/1/2006, without any pay protection is correct.

7. An early reply in the matter is solicited.

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

Denial of pay fixation benefit in the case of Sr. P. Way Supervisors (GP 4200 PB-2) merged with JE/P.Way (GP 4200+PB-2)

Denial of pay fixation benefit in the case of Sr. P. Way Supervisors (GP 4200 PB-2) merged with JE/P.Way (GP 4200+PB-2)

No. I/2/Part IV

Dated: 16/10/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Denial of pay fixation benefit in the case of Sr. P. Way Supervisors (GP 4200 PB-2) merged with JE/P.Way (GP 4200+PB-2)

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM agenda item No. 53/2016.
(ii) RailwayBoard’s letter No. PC-III/20l6/FE-II/3 dated 08/09/2016.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. VZlPart trI dated 12/09/2016 & No. 1/2/Part IV dated
05/06/2017.
(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-III/20l6/FE-II/3 dated 05/07/2017.
(v) NFIR’s letter No. I/2Part IV dated 10/07/2017.
(vi) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-III/20l6/FE-II/3 dated 26/07/2017.

The reply sent by the Railway Board vide letter dated 2610712017 is not acceptable to the Federation as the Railway Board has ignored the fact that the Sr. P. Way Supervisors have been made to shoulder higher responsibilities of Jr. Engineer (P. Way) and in such sifuations, pay fixation under erstwhile Rule FR 22 (C) is needed to be extended to the staff. Federation further desires to state that Enbloc merger and upgradation granted by the Railway Board, should not undermine the right of the employee to claim benefit of pay fixation when he is shifted to the higher post with higher responsibilities.

NFIR wanted the Railway Board to cite the rule under which pay fixation is not admissible in these cases, but sadly the Board have not cited any rule position. Relying on Rule 1313 and denying the benefit of pay fixation is highly improper.

This being a PNM subject, the Federation will discuss the issue in the ensuing PNM meeting at the level of MS & FC.

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

Dated: 29.06.2017

REMINDER – 2

To,
The Dy Secretary (CP),
Govt of India, Min of Defence,
‘B’ Wing, Sena Bhawan,
New Delhi – 110011

Subject: Seeking of Clarification regarding Option & Pay Fixation in 7th CPC.

Reference: 1. This federation’ letter of even No. dated 01.10.2016, 03.05.2017
2. MoD ID No. 11(6)/2016-D(Civ-I), Dated 07.12.2016

Respected Sir,
With due regards, your attention is invited to the letter cited under reference (1) whereby this federation has requested to issue necessary clarification for fixation of pay in various circumstances under the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016.

In turn, vide letter cited under reference (2) it has been communicated that MoD has sent a proposal to MoD(Finance) on 05.12.2016 to seek clarification about the manner of fixation of pay through illustrations prepared by D(Civ-I).

One of the doubts is still pending and that is causing discontentment amongst the employees, which is as under:-

Point of Doubt No.3: If the pay of an employee ‘XYZ’ was Rs. 12200 in PB-1 plus 2800 GP as on 31.12.2015 and after completion of 10 yrs regular service, he would be eligible for grant of financial upgradation under MACP on 15.03.2017 in the Grade pay of 4200, kindly clarify:-

(i) Whether ‘XYZ’ may opt 7th CPC w.e.f. 15.03.2017 (date of financial upgradation) and till then (14.03.2017) he will draw his wages in the existing system of 6th CPC.

It is worth to mention here that Audit Authorities state that option is available between 01.01.2016 and the date of issue of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 only.

Therefore, you are requested to take appropriate action so that the employees may be benefitted with the fixation of pay in correct perspective without further delay.

Thanking you.

Sincerely yours

New Delhi-110055

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,

Dear Sir,

Sub: Denial of option for pay fixation in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix to the staff inducted from the post of Diesel/Electric Loco Technician to the post of Assistant Loco Pilot against 50% quota vacancies-review requested.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2017/R-U/18 dated 01/05/2017.

With reference to the reply of Railway Board vide letter cited above, the Federation conveys as follows:-

  • It may be appreciated that because of staff representations on account of negative response of lower level administration, NFIR has chosen to reach Railway Board. The reply of Board to the Federation may not resolve the staff grievance unless and until Board sends NFIR’s letter copy to GMs etc., together with its reply copy sent to Federation also.
  • For proper appreciation, Federation encloses copy of Sr. DFM/GTL (S.C. Railway) reply to DPO/GTL (A/IG/7PCSRs/Certification dated 07/03/2017) together with copy of DRM/P/GTL O.O. No. 502/Loco-Rng/2016 dated 09/05/2016. From these papers, it could be noticed that option for pay fixation has been denied.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions to GMs etc., on the subject, duly enclosing copy of Federation’s letter and Board’s reply thereon to mitigate the problems and ensure proper implementation in order to avoid staff grievances on such matters.

Sub: – Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised pay structure – clarifications – regarding.

Following the notification of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, Railway Board has received references seeking clarifications regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. These matters have been considered by Ministry of Finance and the points of doubts are clarified as under:-

Sl. 
No.
Point of doubt Clarification
1. As per the provisions of FR 22 (I)(a)(1), the Government Servants (other than those appointed on deputation to ex- cadre post or ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion/appointment or from the date of next increment.Some    of  the  employees,  promoted between  01.01.2016   and the date of notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation  on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 i.e. 28th July, 2016, the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous.

Whether such employee may be allowed to revise their option under FR 22 (l)(a)(1) at this stage.

Under the changed circumstances after notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016, the employee   may   be  allowed to exercise   revised     option   for fixation   of     pay  under    FR 22(I)(a)(1). Such   revised  option shall    be  exercised  within   one month   of  issue    of   this  letter. Option so revised shall be final.
Whether employees appointed/ promoted/granted financial upgradation during 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment 01.01.2016 Since, the provisions of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 are effective from 01.01.2016, no increment Shall be allowed on 01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.
