Sub: Revision of hourly rates of Incentive Bonus and Bonus Factors of Workshops/PUs staff under CRJ Pattern & GIS – Regarding Financial implications thereof.

Ref: 1. Railway Board’s Order No. RBE-I/201/23/39, dated 06.07.2017& 18.05.2018.

2. Our memorandum dated 02.07.2018 & meeting with you on 04.07.2018. Respected Madam,

With reference to our earlier memorandum and our meeting with you on 04.07.2018, we submit this memorandum for the kind consideration of the Committee for revision of hourly rates of Incentive Bonus on estimated additional expenditure on account of revision of incentive rates based on minimum pay of respective Pay Level in 7th CPC Pay Matrix divided by 208 (standard working hours per month) – as per formula followed after 5th Pay Commissions.

Proposed revision of Incentive Rates is estimated to cost additionally only 1.28 percent in terms of cost of man power.

There are 2,38,546 workshop Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ staff (2,19,682 Group ‘C’ & 18,864 in Group ‘D’) of Mechanical, Electrical and S&T covered under incentive scheme as on 03.2017. (Strength of workshop artisan & helper as on 31.03.2017 is given in Table-1)

Average annual wage per employee for Group ‘C’ in Workshop staff including pay, all allowances, PLB, pension & gratuity (Senior Technician, Supervisor (Ministry), Technician Grade-I, II & Ill) is Rs. 7,09,494. (Ref. Statement 40 (II) (b) of Indian Railways Annual Statistical Statement 2016-17)

Average annual wage per employee for Group ‘D’ Workshop staff including pay, all allowances, PLB, pension & gratuity (semi-skilled & unskilled) is Rs. 5,66,147. (Ref. Statement 40 (II) (e) of Indian Railways Annual Statistical Statement 2016-17)

If incentive rates are revised based on minimum of respective Pay Level divided by 208, additional expenditure is estimated to be Rs.214.09 crore.

In terms of equivalent man power it will be 3,061 Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ workshop staff (2,847 men in Group ‘C’ and 213 in group ‘D’).

This will be only 1.28% of 2,19,682 strength of Group ‘C’&’D’ workshop staff available in Indian Railways as on 31.03.2017. Details of the calculation is attached in Table-2.

It is therefore requested that, no reduction in allowed time / man power may please be proposed for implementation of revised incentive rates, since the estimated additional cost equal to only 1.28% man power which will be compensated by additional work load due to the addition of rolling stocks & new trains.

Hoping for a favourable consideration & thank you in anticipation,

Yours faithfully,

Harchandan Singh General Secretary, IRTSA

Government’s decision on recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission – Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprivel of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2

7th Central Pay Commission -Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprive of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2-reg

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

No.IV/NFIR/7 CPC/Allowance/2016/Part I

Dated: 28/08/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Government’s decision on recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission -Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprivel of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-V/2017/A/TA/1 dated 17/08/2017 (RBE No.96/2017).

NFIR invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the modified instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 17/08/2017 on payment of Transport Allowance at revised rates, stating that the Railway employees who are drawing pay of Rs.24,200/- & above in Pay Level 1 & 2 of the 7th CPC Pay Matrix are entitled for Transport Allowance @ Rs.3600 plus DA thereon in cities mentioned in the Annexure to Board’s letter dated 03/08/2017 and @ Rs.1800 plus DA thereon at all other places.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that with the issuance of instructions dated 17/08/2017, an anomalous situation has arisen wherein the Railway employees in Pay Level 3, drawing pay Rs. 21,700/- and above upto Level 8 are entitled for Transport Allowance @ Rs. 3600 + DA thereon (in Al/A class cities and in other cities @ Rs. 1800 + DA thereon), while those in Pay Level 1 & 2 are made eligible for the Transport Allowance at the said rate (i.e. Rs. 3600/- + DA thereon) on reaching the Pay of Rs. 24,200/- and above.

Federation further desires to state that pursuant to the recommendations of 5th CPC and 6th CPC, the following instructions were issued:-

Recommendations of 5th CPC – Transport Allowance

RBE No. 179/1997 (rates w.e.f. 01/08/1997)

S.No Pay Scale of the Employees A 1/A Class City Other Places
1 Rs.8000-13500 or above 800 400
2 Rs.6500-10500 or above but below Rs.8000-13500 400 200
3 Below Rs.6500-10500 100 75

Above position reveals that all the employees working in pay scale below Rs. 6500-10500 i.e. upto Rs. 6000-9800 (S1 to S1OA) were allowed Transport Allowance at the uniform rate of Rs. 100/- p.m. in Al/A class cities irrespective of their pay.

Recommendations of 6th CPC -Transport Allowance

RBE No.111/2008 (rates w.e.f 01/09/2008) & RBE No.95/2015

Employees drawing Grade Pay of
Rate of Transport Allowance For A 1/A Class cities
GP 5400 & above 3200 + DA
GP 4200-4800,GP below 4200 and pay in pay band = Rs.7440 1600 + DA
GP below 4200 and Pay below Rs.7400 600 + DA

From the above, it could be seen that the employees were allowed higher rate of Transport Allowance on reaching the pay @ Rs.7440/- irrespective of their Grade Pay (PB-) viz., GP 1800,1900,2000,2400,2800.

The above position shows that the Board’s instructions dated 03-08-2017 and 17-08-2017 have deprived the Transport Allowance at Rs.3600/- + Da thereon to the staff working in pay Level 1 & 2 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix due to the restriction that such higher rate of Transport Allowance is allowed on reaching the pay of Rs.24,200, inspite of the fact that they were already drawing higher rate when their pay was Rs.7,440/- in 6th CPC Grade Pay 1800,1900,2000,2400 and 2800.

Federation contends that the ends of justice would be met if the Railway employees working in Pay Level 1 & 2 are also allowed payment of Transport Allowance at higher rate i.e.Rs.3600/- + DA thereon when their pay is Rs.21,700/- instead Rs.24,200/-.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to make out a case and refer the matter to the Ministry of Finance for removal of aberration for ensuring justice to lower level staff (i.e.Pay level 1 and 2 also). A Copy of the reference made to the Ministry of Finance, may be provided to the Federation for follow up action.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)

General Secretary.
