Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC -1S Pay Band (Rs. 4440-7440) + GP 1300

Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC -1S Pay Band (Rs. 4440-7440) + GP 1300-reg.

Dear Sir,
Sub: Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC -1S Pay Band (Rs. 4440-7440) + GP 1300-reg.

Ref: NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 24/26-08-2016 addressed to Railway Board.

Federation vide its letter of even number dated 24/26-08-2016 brought to the notice of Railway Board a case non-fixation of pay of staff working in Pay Band-1S/Rs. 4440-7440 in whose favour no orders have been passed for fixation of these staff pursuant to the implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC. For the purpose the Federation cited Railway Board’s notification issued under RBE No. 90/2016 where there are no instructions for these staff.

In addition to above, Federation proposed to the Board to consider the skills and service experience gained by the staff, presently in- 1S, for considering placement in Level-I (Rs. 18000/-) of the

7th CPC Pay Matrix. Federation feels sad to point out that thereafter a period of over three months has passed there is no feed back with the result the employees have been made to suffer unnecessarily. A copy of Federation’s letter dated 24/26-08-2016 is enclosed for reference.

NFIR, thereofore, requests the Railway Board once again to take further necessary action and advise to the Federation only.

Yours faithfully,

Merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way – Pay fixation

Merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way – Pay fixation

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
RAILWAY BOARD

No: PC-III/2016/FE-II/3

Dated 09.12.2016.

The General Secretary, NFIR,

New Delhi-55.

Sir,
Sub: Merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way – Pay fixation.
Ref: NFIR’s letter no. I/2/Part III dated 12-09-2016 & PNM/NFIR item no.53/2016.

With reference to NFIR’s letter ibid, the issue of granting of benefit of pay fixation in the case of enbloc merger of Sr.P.Way Supervisors with JE/P. Way was re-examined in detail in consultation with Finance Directorate and it was observed that due to the following reasons, pay fixation benefit under rule 1313(i) of Establishment Code Vol.II may not be allowed in the case of enbloc merger of Sr.PWS to JE/P.Way.

(i) As per rule 1313 (FR22)(i) (a)(1) R-II, pay fixation benefit under this rule is allowed subject to the fulfillment of the eligibility conditions as prescribed in the relevant recruitment Rules. This conditions is not fulfilled during enbloc merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way.

(ii) While phasing out the category of PWS in pre-revised scale Rs. 4500-7000 + Rs. 100 (spl.allowance) and introduction of new category of Sr.PWS in pre-revised pay scale Rs.5000-8000 vide Board’s letter dated 22-03-2007, pay fixation benefit under Rule 1313 (FR 22) (I) (a) (1) R-II has already been given to the P.Way Supervisors.

(iii) As Sr.PWSs and JE/P Ways were in the identical scale PB-2, Grade Pay Rs. 4200, while issuing orders for enbloc merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way, both the posts (Sr.PWS & JE/P.Way) were deemed to be equal.

Further, it is stated that as per instructions laid down in Board’s letter no. PC-VI/2011/IC/1 dated 12-09-2013, benefit of pay fixation under Rule 13 of RSRP Rules-2008 is only allowed to the Sr.PWS who were promoted as JE/P.Way betweeen the period from 01-01-2006 to 02-07-2013 (prior to merger of Sr.PWS with JE/P.Way).

Yours faithfully,
General Secretary

(As per mailing list)

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 paints of doubts are clarified as under:-

Sl.No. Point of doubt Clarification
1 As per the provisions of FR 22 (l)(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(I)(a)(1) at this stage.

Whether employees appointed/promoted/granted financial upgradation during 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment on 01.01.2016

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.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.

Re employed Ex Servicemen (Rank below commissioned officers) Pay Fixation : Confederation

Re employed Ex Servicemen (Rank below commissioned officers) Pay Fixation :  Confederation

Ex Service men Pay Fixation : Confederation writes to Hon’ble Minister of State, Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension

Ref: CONF/GENL/Ex service men/2016 19

Dated : 28.09.2016

To,
Dr. Jitendra Singh
Hon’ble Minister of State Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension
102, North Block
New Delhi : 110001

Respected Sir,
Sub: : Ex Service men pay fixation : intervention requested.

1. It is submitted that pay fixation of re employed Ex Service men who held rank below commissioned officer/Group A at the time of their retirement is not carried out in many departments (Eg; Postal department) as per Government orders issued from time due to misinterpretation/wrong classification by the administrative authorities. The re employed Ex Servicemen are being deprived of their due by the controlling authorities.

2. Department of Personnel & Training under Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pension is the nodal authority in the subject matter. Presently CCS (Fixation of Pay of re employed Pensioners) orders 1986, amended from time to time, which act as the basic guideline, is required to be amended to bring clarity and parity for whole class of Ex servicemen. The pay of the re employed Ex Commissioned officers/Group ‘A’ is fixed at a higher stage due to their past service benefit but in the case of re employed Ex Servicemen who held rank below commissioned officers, their pay is fixed at minimum of pay scale of re employed post which is denial of natural justice and violation of fundamental rights, particularly right to equality, enshrined in our constitution, as discrimination arises out of such partial provisions. The provision contained in pay fixation basically are welfare measure to support the class of Ex Servicemen as a whole. However, this discrimination in pay fixation had added to their woes.

3. Detailed statement of case for regularization/streamlining of pay fixation of re employed Ex Servicemen are enclosed herewith for your kind consideration and issue of necessary guidelines in favour of veteran Warries of our country who sacrificed their vital years for India and still engaged themselves in nation building.

STATEMENT OF CASE FOR REGULARISATION OF PAY FIXATION OF RE EMPLOYED EX SERVICEMEN (PERSONNEL BELOW OFFICER RANK) IN CENTRAL GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS/ MINISTRIES

INTRODUCTION

Government of India provides reemployment opportunities to Ex Servicemen Officers/Other Ranks of Indian Armed Forces in various Departments/Ministries, Public Sector Organizations & Autonomous Bodies as a rehabilitation measure due to their compulsory retirement at early age to keep the forces young. According to CCS (Fixation of Pay of reemployed Pensioners) Orders 1986 amended from time to time by DOP&T the Reemployed Officers are allowed to draw a higher stage of initial pay in consideration with their pre retirement pay on reemployment in such Government organizations. In case of other ranks/PBOR (Jawans/NCOs/JCOs) the Government departments and Ministries have allowed to draw only minimum/entry pay of re employed post as applicable to fresh recruit. Public Sector organizations viz., Nationalised Banks, LIC, NIC and other PSUs have allowed to draw the higher stage of initial pay (at the stage of pre retirement pay) to reemployed ex servicemen (Jawans/JCOs/NCOs) as mentioned above.

DETAILED JUSTIFICATION OF THE CASE

Department of Posts and some other departments has not agreed to allow the higher initial pay on re employment in consideration with pre retirement pay to re employed ex servicemen belonging to below officer rank of the Armed Forces. Most of the Ex servicemen belong to PBOR category retired (discharged) from service at the age of 35 : 40 years to keep the forces young. To ensure the minimum survival support earning, Government of India introduced a higher stage of pay in several manners to the reemployed ex servicemen from time to time. According to Dept of P&T OM No 3/1/86 Estt (P II) dated 31 July 1986 the earlier orders relating to fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners was scattered in a number of OM issued by Ministry of finance from time to time. Dept. of P&T consolidated all these orders and issued fresh guidelines in a single order viz., CCS (Fixation of pay of re employed pensioners) Order 1986. The pay fixation procedure mentioned in such earlier

OMs (Prior to 1986) issued by Ministry of Finance as under: :

1) According to Ministry of Finance, Dept of Expenditure OM No 8(34) Estt III/57 dated 25 Nov 1958 pay of the re employed pensioners will be fixed at the minimum of pay scale of the re employed post. In cases where it is felt that fixation of pay of re employed officers at the minimum of pay scale will cause undue hardship the pay may be fixed at a higher stage by allowing one increment for each year of service the officer has rendered before retirement in a post not lower than that he reemployed. In other words, if the amount of pay plus pension is less than the last pay drawn before retirement from previous service, it will be treated as undue hardship.

2) In case of reemployed pensioner who retired before attaining the age of 55 years, Rs 125/ was ignored from the pension for the purpose of pay fixation vide Ministry of finance OM No F.4(3)E III/82 dated 13 December 1978.

3) According to Ministry of Finance OM No F.4(3) E.III/82 dated 13 Dec 1983 the entire pension of the reemployed pensioners who held below Group A post/ Commissioned officer rank and retired before attaining the age of 55 years will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation. In this regard Para 4(d) (i) of CCS (Fixation of pay or reemployed pensioners) order 1986, amended from time to time may be referred.

Hence in the cases where pay plus Non Ignorable Portion of Pension is less than last pay drawn (LPD) before retirement, it will be treated as undue hardship. In case of Ex : Personnel below Commissioned officer /Group ‘A’ Officer Rank, the non ignorable part of pension is zero. So it may be described such a manner that, if the pay of re employed post is less than last pay drawn in such cases advance increments will be granted as instructions given in Ministry of Finance OM dated 25 November 1958. Hence the pay of re employed ex servicemen (Jawans/JCOs) will be fixed at higher stage.

4) Now the provisions of CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986, and its application is as under: :

(i) In case of Reemployed officers who held Group A/Commissioned Officer Rank before retirement: : According to Para 4(d)(ii) such re employed officer who retired before attaining the age of 55 Years, first Rs 4000/ of his pension only will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation. According to Para 4(b) (ii) Pay of such re employed officers will be fixed at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement as a part of pension is only ignored for the purpose of pay fixation and remaining part of pension will be deducted from pay so fixed at the last pay drawn. As a result, pay of such officer is fixed at much higher than the minimum pay of re employed post. Illustration as mentioned below: :

Colonel A Retired at the age of 54 Years and re employed as Section Officer [Gp A Gazetted post in the pay scale of (Rs 15600 (BP) + Rs 5400 (Grade Pay)] His other details are as under: :

Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 15600 + Rs 5400 = Rs 21000

Last pay drawn in previous service = Rs 54000 (BP) + Rs 8700 (GP) + Rs 6000 (MSP)
Total pay last drawn = Rs 68700/
Pensioned sanctioned = Rs 34350/ pm

Pay fixation on his re employment: :

Step : I : Determination of last pay drawn = Rs 68700
Step : II : Determination of non ignorable = Rs 34350 : Rs 4000 = Rs 30350 part of his pension
Step : III : Deduction of non ignorable = Rs 68700 : Rs 30350 = Rs 38350 Part of pension from
Last Pay Drawn
Step : IV : Fixation of Initial pay = Rs 38350

(In addition to pay so fixed above, he shall be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefit. As explained in para 4(C) of CCS (RP) rules, 2008 vide OM 3/19/2009 dated 5th April 2010.)

From above it is notable that the minimum pay of the re employed post is Rs 21,000/ and the pay fixed at Rs 38350/ hence the pay has been fixed at the higher stage due to consideration of his pre retirement pay. It is justified as the pay of an experienced person can never be equal to a fresh recruit, but the same justification should be considered for reemployed Ex Non Commissioned officer cadre (JCOs/Jawans) also.

In case of Reemployed Ex servicemen who held rank below Group A/Commissioned Officer Rank before retirement and retired before attaining the age of 55 years: : According to Para 4(d) (i) such re employed ex servicemen who retired before attaining the age of 55 Years his entire pension will be ignored for the purpose of pay fixation.

According to Para 4(b) (i) Pay of such re employed ex servicemen will be fixed at the minimum of pay scale of reemployed post. Pre retirement pay will not be considered for his pay fixation. Treatment of undue hardship caused due to fixation of minimum pay is neglected here.

Illustration as mentioned below: :

Sepoy ABC (MACP I) Retired at the age of 36 Years and reemployed as Social Security Assistant in the pay scale of Rs 5830 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP) Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = Rs 8230

His other details are as under: :
Last pay drawn = Rs 9550 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP) + Rs 2000 (MSP) + Rs 300 (Class pay)
Total pay last drawn = Rs 14250/
Pension sanctioned = Rs 7125/ pm

Pay fixation on his re employment: :

Step I Determination of Initial pay of re employed post = Rs 8230
Step II Fixation of Initial pay on re employment = Rs 8230

From above it is notable that the re employed ex servicemen is allowed to draw only minimum pay of reemployed post which is Rs 8200/ much less than his last pay drawn Rs14250/ before retirement, hence the undue hardship arises as his pre retirement pay has been neglected. The gap will widen in case we take example of Nb Subedar of Army or a Sergeant of Air force who gets X pay additionally.

From the illustration (i) and (ii) it is revealed that the CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986 is not a consolidation of provisions of OM issued by Ministry of finance rather it is an order issued by Government of India which intended to give benefit to Ex Commissioned officers and deprive the Ex servicemen (PBOR). This Order was formulated to serve the interests of Ex Group ‘A’ Officers/Commissioned Officer category only and discriminated against the PBOR/Other Ranks in terms of Right to equality enshrined in our Constitution of India. The service conditions were equally harsher to whole class of ex servicemen including all ranks of Armed Forces; in fact more harsh if service privileges and promotions are to be considered separately.

5. In addition to above, according to Para 2 of DOPT OM No 3/13/2008/Estt/Pay II dated 11 Nov 2008 it is clear that the pay of re employed ex servicemen will be fixed according to rule 7 of CCS RP Rules 2008 with adherence to CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Rules 1986 amended from time to time. The term minimum pay refers here the pay last drawn by the reemployed ex servicemen before retirement (substantive pay) and the pay should be fixed in the pay structure of re employed post i.e. the grade pay of re employed post only admissible in such case. Total pay should be equal to the last pay drawn by the pensioner. In this regard your attention is also invited to para 3(v) of DOPT OM No 3/19/2009 Estt (Pay II) dated 05 April 2010 where it is clearly instructed that the pay of re employed personnel/officers will be fixed at the same stage as last pay drawn. In this regard Verdict of Honourable Supreme Court dt 08.11.1996 in the case of Director General of India Posts Vs B Ravindran may be referred.

6. Pay of Re Employed Officers is fixed at higher stage due to formula applied as prescribed in the CCS (Fixation of pay of re employed pensioners) Order 1986. Whereas the interest of personnel below officer rank was totally neglected and their pay is fixed at the minimum of pay scale only which is contrary to natural injustice and violation of Right to equality enshrined in the Constitution of India as discrimination arises.

7. Public Sector Banks, LIC, NIC and PSUs are still allowed the higher stage of initial pay to Ex PBOR with reference to the Government orders (DOP&T OM dated 05.04.2010). Circular of Indian Banks Association in this regard may be referred to. Due to misinterpretation/ambiguous language of Government orders issued on the subject matter, Central Government departments does not agree to re fix the pay of re employed ex servicemen (PBOR) category as mentioned in para 4 above. The re employed Ex serviceman belonging to PBOR category, are allowed to get their pay fixed only at the minimum/entry pay of re employed post which is illogical and unlawful decision in terms of violation of constitutional provisions of fundamental rights. As a result, a large number of ex servicemen are suffering from financial hardship besides moral depression.

8. Quoting the same authority /Govt. orders issued by DOP&T the PSU organizations and Nationalised Banks (Govt. Undertakings) have facilitated the pay fixation to the ex servicemen (PBOR) to fix the pay at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement but Central Government departments still not agreed to provide the entitlements to the re employed ex soldiers due to ambiguous provisions. They cite different reasons that PSUs are following different pay system etc. forgetting that PSUs derive the authority from the same Central government, So, how can there be two sets of rules for same category by same employer (Central Government).

REMEDIAL ACTION REQUIRED TO BE TAKEN

9. In view of the above it is requested that, your good office should weed out the actual disparity arising out of incomplete and discriminatory orders issued by the DOP&T vide CCS (Fixation of pay of reemployed pensioners) Order 1986 (amended from time to time) and issue necessary amendment/fresh order in favour of the Ex Servicemen (PBOR) category as mentioned below: :

For: : Para 4(b)(i)

Where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re employment shall be fixed as per 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 (RP) Rules, 2008.

It should be read as under (DRAFT PROPOSAL): : Para 4(b)(i) where the pension is fully ignored, the initial pay on re employment shall be fixed as per 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 (RP) Rules, 2008. In cases of reemployed ex servicemen where pension is fully ignored and pay fixed at minimum/entry
pay of reemployed post which is less than his pay last drawn in the Armed forces will be treated as undue hardship and his pay required to be fixed at a higher stage by allowing advance increments until his pay reaches at the same stage as last pay drawn before retirement to prevent undue hardship. In addition, he will be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to him and to retain any other form of retirement benefit.

Illustration: Sergeant/Havildar (any non commissioned rank) ABC Retired before the age of 55 Years and reemployed in the pay scale of Rs 5830 (BP) + Rs 2400 (GP)
Initial pay of reemployed post = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = Rs 8230
Last pay drawn by him = Rs 12000 (BP) + Rs 2800 (GP) + Rs 2000 (MSP) + Rs 300 (Class pay) + GCB 240 + X pay 1400
Total pay last drawn = Rs 18740/
Pension sanctioned = Rs 9370/
Pay fixation on his reemployment: :
Step : I Determination of minimum pay = Rs 5830 + Rs 2400 = 8230 (minimum pay of reemployed post)
Step : II Fixation of total pay = Rs 18740/ (Last pay drawn) by allowing advance increment).
Step : III Manner of Re fixation of pay = Rs 16840 (Band Pay) + 2400 (Grade Pay of re employed post)

(This order should be applicable to all re employed ex servicemen irrespective of their date of retirement and date of re employment)

CONCLUSION

10. In the light of the above, it is requested that the fresh orders/amendments be issued free from any scope of misinterpretation/ ambiguity, clearly mentioning the feasibility of fixation of pay of the re employed ex servicemen belonging to below officer ranks, at the same stage as the last pay drawn before retirement, ignoring entire portion of pension since the pension is miniscule and not even enough to live on rent in a city. In addition, they shall be permitted to draw, separately any pension sanctioned to them and to retain any other form of retirement benefit. Thousands of re employed soldiers suffering from acute financial hardship due to very low earning even after re employed. They would get relief with the right approach and initiative if taken at your end at the earliest. This will also save the Government’s expenditure and precious time of officers on litigations that are either pending or may be initiated in various courts.

Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and Pay Fixation for Running Staff

Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and Pay Fixation for Running Staff

No. IV/NFIR/7CPC( Imp)/2016/R.B.

Dated: 23/08/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and Pay Fixation for Running Staff-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/20161R.B. dated 13/07/2016.
(ii) Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016 (RBE No. 93/2016).
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 04/08/2016.

In continuation to NFIR’s letter of even number dated 04/08/2016, Federation desires to highlight some facts as mentioned below:-

  • The Fitment table issued by the Railway Board vide letter No. PC-VI/2008/1/RSRP/1 dated 12/09/2008 was very clear, consequently correct pay fixation was done in favour of Running Staff with effect from 01/01/2006.
    This time, no fitment table has been issued resulting disappointment among Loco and Traffic Running Staff in Railways.
  •  A statement showing the revised pay fixation on the 7th CPC Pay Matrices is enclosed. The statement shows that 14.29% hike is not ensured.
  •  According to the notification issued by Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure vide Para 12 of Resolution No. 1-2/2016-IC dated 25th July 2016, while revising the Pay of Running Staff it should be ensured that actual raise in Pay at the time of initial fixation of pay should be 14.29% as recommended by the 7th CPC. It is however, disappointing to note that the Railway Board’s decision communicated vide letter No. PC-VII/2016/ RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016 (Annexure C) has not ensured Pay raise of 14.29%, consequently each Running Staff is deprived of more than Rs. 2000 p.m.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to review and ensure pay raise of not less than 14.29% for the Running Staff while revising the pay in the 7th CPC Pay Matrices. Federation also urges the Railway Board to issue the revised fitment table duly ensuring 14.29% hike as was done on 12th September 2008 when 6th CPC Grade Pay/Pay Band was given effect from 01/01/2006.

Yours faithfully,

Central Secretariat employees seek pay parity

A delegation of the Central Secretariat Stenographers’ Service (CSSS) Association, called on the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr Jitendra Singh here today and sought his intervention for parity in pay fixation and related issues.

The delegation led by Shri Raj Kishore Singh submitted a memorandum listing details of their long pending issues and suggesting options to resolve the same. According to the memorandum, while applying Rule 8 of CCS (RP) Rules 2008, the pay of direct recruits and new entrants is fixed at higher stage, when compared to the existing employees who were promoted in the same grade. This leads to discrimination in the fixation of pay of Personal Assistants of one category vis-à-vis the other category.

The memorandum also stated that the issue has been lingering on in the National Anomaly Committee for the last four years, but it has not been addressed. It pleaded that the mechanism of grant of “stepping up” to certain employees should be provided only in exceptional cases and not resorted to as a routine matter to sort out discrepancies which may affect a large number of employees.

Members of the delegation suggested that their issue can be addressed by incorporating a new provision in the Rules wherein if a promotee’s pay is getting fixed at a stage lower than that of a direct recruit, then the pay of the promotee should be fixed at the same stage as that of a direct recruit / new entrant. The other option suggested by them was to amend the CCS (RP) Rules so as to appropriately fix the pay in the Pay Band for a particular post carrying a specific Grade Pay.

Dr Jitendra Singh gave a sympathetic hearing to the members of delegation and assured them that DoPT will try to sort out their issue to the maximum extent possible.

No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B.

Dated: 04/08/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and Pay Fixation for Running Staff-reg.

Ref: (i)NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B. dated 13/07/2016.
(ii) Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/0811016 (RBE No. 93/2016).

The Federation vide its letter dated 13/07/2016 requested the Railway Board that in view of 30% pay element of Running Staff needed to be taken for arriving at the “multiplier factor”, it was suggested to maintain the same at “3” instead of “2.57”. Federation is however disappointed to note that the Railway Board instead of following the simple procedure has complicated and mutilated the pay fixation formula/procedure of Running Staff as per illustration given in Annexure ‘C’ of Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016 (RBE No. 93/2016).

In this connection, the Federation brings to the notice of the Railway Board that in the Resolution circulated by the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) vide No. 1-2/2016-IC on 25th July 2016 in Para 12, it has been mentioned that in respect of Railway employees to whom Running Allowance is admissible, it will be ensured that the actual rise in pay at the time of initial fixation is about 14.29% as recommended by the Pay Commission. Federation feels sad to convey that the said decision of the Ministry of Finance has not been complied with by the Railway Ministry particularly in respect of Running Staff.

In case of Running Staff with Rs.1000/- Basic Pay, he will get Dearness Allowance Rs.1,625/-, thus, the total would be Rs.2,625/-. In terms of Gazette Para 12, minimum benefit 14.29% should be given to Running Staff. 14.29% of Rs.2,625/- is Rs.375/-. Thus Basic Pay + Dearness Allowance + Minimum Guaranteed Benefit = 1000 + 1625 + 375 = Rs.3,000/-. From this, it is clear that the Running Staff having Basic Pay of Rs.1000/- should be fixed at Rs.3000/-. But in the illustration given in RBE 93/2016, Running Staff with Basic Pay of Rs.19,930/- is fixed at Rs.58,694/-, which works out 12.19% which is clear violation of Para 12 of Gazette Notification.

In view of the above, the Annexure of Board’s letter dated 02/08/2016 is needed to be redrawn to ensure justice to the Running Staff. NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the above points and issue modification immediately duly endorsing copy to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

NFIR – Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and pay Fixation for Running Staff

NFIR

No. IV/NFIR/7CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B.

Dated : 13/07/2016

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir.

Sub: Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and pay Fixation for Running Staff – reg.

The Railway Board is aware that the Union Cabinet has decided on 29th June 2016 for implementation of revised Pay Matrices of the 7th Central Pay Commission w.e.f. 01/01/2016 duly applying 2.57 multiplier factor. The notification, in this regard, is expected from the Ministry of Finance in due course.

In this connection, the NFIR invites Railway Board’s attention to letter No. PC- VI/2008/1/RSRP/1 dated 12/09/2008 relating to Pay Fixation tables for Running Staff which were given effect from 01/01/2006 and wherein the Fitment Factor was 2.118 for Running Staff (in view of pay element) instead of 1.86. Considering the 30% pay element of Running Stuff which is needed to be taken for arriving at multiplier factor, the Federation is of the view that the Fitment Factor for Pay Fixation of Running Staff in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix shall be “3” instead of “2.57”.

NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to take the above points into consideration for the purpose of determining the Fitment Factor as “3” in the case of Running Staff for granting 7th CPC Pay Fixation w.e.f. 01/01/2016.

Yours faithfully

To

All Concerned Controlling Offices through website of CPWD.

Sub: Reg. – Pay fixation of officials in terms of Illustration 4A of CCS(RP)Rules, 2008 in cases where posts have been upgraded.

Sir,

I am directed to refer to the above captioned subject and to say that it has been observed that, in some offices of CPWD, the pay fixation of Office Superintendents (erstwhile Head Clerk) on their promotion from the grade of UDC, during the period of 01.01.2006 to 31.08.2008, were made in the upgraded Pay Scale of Rs. 6500-10500 by multiplying Rs. 6500×1.86, instead of multiplying 1.86 with their existing pay at the time of their promotion as OS.

2. It is, therefore, requested to all concerned Controlling Offices to rectify such pay fixation, if made, in respect of any officials. All Controlling Officers are directed to strictly follow Illustration 4A of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 (copy enclosed) for pay fixation in case of upgradation of pay scale in respect of officials working under their jurisdiction. It is also directed that no recovery of over payments shall be made, if, such direction has been made by any Tribunal/Courts.

3. This issues with the approval of Director (Admn.)-II.

Yours faithfully,

NFIR write to Railway Board to settle the issue of stepping up of pay of Seniors drawing less pay than the Juniors

Stepping up of pay of Seniors drawing less pay than the Juniors consequent on fixation of pay due to implementation of 6th CPC recommendations between Direct Recruits and Promotees – item no. 8 and para no. 20 & 21 of the Record Note of the meeting of the Standing Committee of National Council JCM held on 7th May 2014

The Secretary (E),

Dear Sir,

Sub: Stepping up of pay of Seniors drawing less pay than the Juniors consequent on fixation of pay due to implementation of 6th CPC recommendations between Direct Recruits and Promotees – item no. 8 and para no. 20 & 21 of the Record Note of the meeting of the Standing Committee of National Council JCM held on 7th May 2014.

 

NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/6th CPC/Main10/Pt. 11 dated 10/11/2014 addressed to Secretary/DoP&T and copies endorsed to Secretary (Pers), Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance and Secretary (E), Railway Board.

 

(ii) DoP&T’s O.M. No. 1046768/2015-Estt(Pay-1) dated 9th March, 2015 addressed to Railway Ministry and copy endorsed to NFIR.

 

(iii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/6th CPC/Main10/Part 11 dated 15/04/2015 & 02/03/2016.

 

(iv) Railway Board’ s letter No.PC-VI/2010/I/RSRP/1 daIed 22/03/2016.

 

The’reply vide Board’s letter dated, 22/03/2016, in response to NFIR’s letter dated 02/03/2016, is disappointing as the Railway Board have failed to appreciate the situation narrated by the Federation to the Secretary, DoP&T in its letter dated 10/11/2014, to which the DoP&T responded as under:-

 

“Department of Expenditure had, after the meeting of the National Anomaly Committee, allowed stepping up of pay to promotees with reference to Direct Recruits subject to certain conditions, including there being an element of direct recruitment, an actual junior receiving more pay etc. They’ however, decided that no general order be issued. Accordingly, Ministry of Railways may take up the matter with the Department of Expenditure for issuing of instructions, if any”.

 

It is needless to mention that the action as mentioned above is needed to be taken at the level of Railway Ministry (Railway Board) for which reference needs to be made to the Department of Expenditure for the purpose of issuing instructions in favour of Railway employees. This is also clear from the fact that the issue was raised in the Standing Committee meeting of NC/JCM held on 07th May 2014 refer Item No. 8 (Para 20 & 21) of the record note of the meeting. Federation is sad to point out that the Railway Board instead of taking action as per the minutes of Standing Committee meeting of NC/JCM has acted differently and have sent a copy of Board’s instructions dated 17/02/2010 to the Federation, which are not at all related to the issue involved. however without examining the issue in consultation with the Department of Expenditure.

 

Federation once again desires to re-iterate that already a period of more than one year has passed, unfortunately, the action needed to be taken in the matter at Board’s level has not been taken yet.

 

NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to take action as indicated by the DoP&T and formulate a proposal to the Department of Expenditure (Ministry of Finance) in consultation with the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

Flaws in Pay Matrix of 7th CPC: Less benefit on grant of Promotional Pay Scale i.r.o. Next Pay Scale

Flaws in Pay Matrix of 7th CPC: Less benefit on grant of Promotional Pay Scale i.r.o. Next Pay Scale

Pay fixation on promotion from UDC to Assistant immediate next pay scale is found more beneficial than the hierarchical promotion. Fixation of a UDC drawing Rs. 10960+2400 promoted to Assistant is given below:

Pay in PB in 6th CPC Pay Scale 10960
Grade Pay in 6th CPC Pay Scale 2400
Total Basic Pay in 6th CPC Pay Scale 13360
Fixation of Pay in New 7th CPC with factor 2.57 34435
New Basic Pay in New Pay Matrix 34300
Increment on 1.7.2016 35300

Fixation on Pay scale hierarchy i.e., 2800 GP

Increment on Promotion 1059
Total of Basic Pay and Increment 36359
Pay fixed at higher stage in 2800 Grade Pay 37000

Fixation on Promotional hierarchy i.e. Rs 4200 GP

Increment on Promotion 1059
Total of Basic Pay and Increment 36359
Pay fixed at higher stage in 4200 Grade Pay 36500

Similar deficiencies may be noticed in other cases also. For similar cases multiplication factor should be increased. Two increments should be granted on promotion.

Bunching benefit in Pay fixation is recommended by 7th pay commission in some situation

Bunching benefit in Pay fixation is recommended by 7th pay commission in some situation

7th Pay commission in its report stated at page 79 entitled Entry Pay, that,” Although the rationalization has been done with utmost care to ensure minimum bunching at most levels, however if situation does  arise whenever more than two stages are bunched together, one additional increment equal to 3 percent may be given for every two stages bunched, and pay fixed in the subsequent cell in the pay matrix.

For instance, if two persons drawing pay of Rs.53,000 and Rs.54,590 in the GP 10000 are to be fitted in the new pay matrix,

1. The pay fixation for the person (A) drawing pay of Rs.53000 (PB + GP)

pay fixation drawing pay

2. The pay fixation for the person (B) drawing pay of Rs.54590 (PB + GP)

( He has earned one increment more than ‘A’ )

7thCPC-matrix-pay

[ Note : The above illustration is taken from 7th Pay commission official report. The revised pay for Rs.53,000 and Rs.54,590 in the GP 10000 are to be taken from the new pay matrix at Level 14.

Because the corresponding Level for Grade Pay Rs.10000 is Level 14.

But in the 7th CPC Report, Level 15 is mentioned instead of Level 14, hope it might be a typographical error. Readers are requested to Read it as Level 14 against Level 15 mentioned in the above illustration . see the image below…]

7th-cpc-report-error

Lets now be clear about the above example..

The Person who has earned one increment more than his junior,  will get fixed one cell forward if they both happened to be fixed in the first cell of the particular Level

1.Where does the situation especially arise …?

These situations will arise in the cases of ..

a) Wherever Upgradation of Grades are recommended, there the Pay fixations for some persons in the Lower grade, irrespective of number of increments earned, as shown above, the Pay will have to be fixed at the first cell of Particular Upgraded Level.

In that Case the govt servants who have earned more number increments than his counterpart will be aggrieved by this method of Pay fixation

b) When the pay arrived by using uniform multiplication factor 2.57 is lesser than the minimum pay corresponding to the level prescribed for that Grade, where some cases, irrespective number of increments earned, has to be fixed at the first cell of that Particular Level.

Subject: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 1.12006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules ,2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and the feeder posts in a common Grade- fixation of Regarding.

The undersigned is directed to Say that consequent upon coming into force of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, which were notified on 298.2008 but are effective from 1.1.2006, fixation of pay on promotion on or after 1.1,2006 is carried out as per Rule 13 thereof. This Rule is invoked only in cases of promotion frotn one Grade pay to another in the revised pay structure.

2. In terms of Section I of Part-A of the First Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, which provides for revised pay structure in the form of applicable pay Bands and Grades pay corresponding to various pre-revised pay Scales, certain pre-revised pay Scales have been merged in a common Grade pay in the revised pay structure w.e.f. 1.1.2006, In view of this, the posts in those pre-revised pay scales which have been merged in a common Grade pay w.e.f. 1,1.2006, are normally required to be merged even if these posts constituted feeder and promotional grades in the pre-revised pay structure.

3. However, in cases where such merger of feeder and promotional posts in the wake of their come to lie in the Same grade pay has not taken place due to administrative reasons and the posts continue to retain their promotional and feeder character as per the relevant Recruitment Rules, this Ministry issued instructions vide OM 10/2/2011-E.III A dated 7.1.2013 providing for fixation of pay on promotion in such cases under Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008 subject to the conditions laid down therein.

4. Now, instances have been brought to the notice of this Ministry where the feeder and promotional posts have been merged in view of the merger of the pre- revised pay scales applicable to the erstwhile feeder and promotional posts in a common grade/post after the promulgation of CCS(RP) Rules), 2008, due to which the character of posts being promotional and feeder grades as existing during the period from 1.12006 to the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 stood rescinded with retrospective effect from 1.12006 and, consequently, a question has been raised as to whether Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 may apply for fixation of pay on promotion taking place during the period between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of the said Rules, when the fixation of pay was actually done as applicable in the event Of promotion in the pre-revised Structure.

5. The matter has been considered in the light of the provisions contained in the OM No. 20020/4/2010-Estt.D dt.13.9.2012 issued by the Department of Personnel & Training, which has been issued in the context of the posts/grades merged in pursuance Of the recommendations of the 6th Central pay Commission. This OM provides, inter-alia, that the Status of a government servant as on 29.8.2008 including those who have earned promotion between 1.12006 and 29.09.2008 will be protected as appointment/promotions are made as per the provisions of the recruitment rules applicable to the post/grade.

6. Accordingly, it has been decided that in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 1.12006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 when the pre-revised and revised pay scales were different and the posts carried the character of feeder and promotional grades, pay fixation on such promotion Shall be allowed under Rule 13 of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, subject to the following conditions:-

(i) The promotion had taken place between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification Of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 as per the Recruitment Rules then
in vogue, which clearly provided for such posts being promotional grade for the feeder grade from where the promotion took place and where the posts were subsequently merged in a single post/grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

(ii) FR. 22 (r) I), which was applicable for fixation Of pay on promotion before promulgation of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, was invoked for fixation
of pay in these cases in the pre-revised structure during the period between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules 2008.

(iii) The concerned employees had opted to come over to the revised pay structure from a date occurring prior to the date Of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

(iv) The concerned Recruitment Rules have been amended subsequently to provide for merger of these grades into a single grade/post.

7. This order applies only in case of promotions carried out in the pre-revised structure durirg 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008. Thus, the benefit of Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 would not apply in Cases of appointment to the post which was in the higher pay scale in the pre-revised pay structure, where such appointment is made after the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

8. In its application to the employees serving under the Indian Audit and Accounts Department, this order issues with the concurrence Of the office Of CMG.
