Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – Clarification regarding Fixation of ceiling of pay for entitlement

Government of India
Ministry of Defence
(Department of Defence)
D(Civ.II)

Subject: Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – Clarification regarding Fixation of ceiling of pay for entitlement.

Ref. : CGDA UO No. AT/11/2366/NDANol-X dated 22.01.2016 and last reminder dated 13.12.2016

In compliance of Hon. CAT, Jodhpur Bench Order dated 5 Nov 2009, MoD issued letter dated 8th May 2015 to provide that the payment of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) shall be made on the basis of the current pay of the employees who are deployed for performing the duty during the night hours. Accordingly, Principal Controller of Accounts (PCA)(Fys), Kolkata issued letter dated 29.05.2015 to define the new formula for computation of NDA. This formula provides that the amount of NDA shall be computed by taking employee’s current Band Pay & Grade Pay plus DA divided by 195 (i.e. total working hours in a month). In this manner, the Hon’ble CAT order, as upheld by Hon’ble High Court/Supreme Court stands implemented in letter & spirit.

2. Subsequently, PCA (Fys) Kolkata issued letter dated,9 Sep 2015 to prescribe the pay ceiling corresponding to Rs. 2200 per month (specified in terms of DoPT OM dated 4 Oct 1989) to determine entitlement of staff for night duty. However, the corresponding pay so prescribed was not accepted by the OFB Administration.

As per OFB’s calculations, the current pay corresponding to Rs.2200 is not only different, but there is wide disparity in both the figures. OFB has stated that they cannot accept this unilateral decision of PCA(Fys) because the calculations are incorrect. Besides, this has led to industrial unrest at all Ordnance Factories.

The staff side members have expressed displeasure and have threatened to stop Night duty at all Ordnance Factories. OFB Admn apprehends serious loss of production and have requested MoD to examine the issue and intimate corresponding pay of Rs.2200 so that the employees could be detailed accordingly for performing duty at night hours. Likewise, CGDA has also sought clarification from MoD on the same issue.

3. The matter was examined in MoD in consultation with MoD(Fin) and DoPT. DoPT stated that the calculations made by both PCA (Fys) and OFB are incorrect and prescribed a different formula to compute the current pay corresponding to Rs.2200 per month that existed during 1989. Both PCA(Fys) and OFB have rejected this formula for being cumbersome and unworkable.

This office also supports their views because using this formula entails tedious calculations of pay of each employee ever since their date of joining service, running into decades. In a nutshell, attempts to find out the current pay equivalent to Rs.2200 pm have not been fruitful in spite of consultations with DoPT and MoD(Fin), and the stalemate on the issue continues across all the defence establishments, leading to confusion and possible loss of productivity.

4. On further consideration, it has been observed that the DOPT OM No. 12012/4/86-Estt.(Allowances) dt. 04.10.1989 on the subject of NDA lays down following condition to determine the entitlement for NDA:

 (Clause a) – The ceiling of pay for entitlement of NDA shall be Rs. 2200/- p.m.

(Clause b)- There will however be no ceiling for entitlement of NDA in respect of officials who are, at present, getting this benefit as per existing criteria.

5.Clause (a)

The pay ceiling of Rs. 2200 per month mentioned in the DoPT in their OM dated 4 Oct 1989, was prescribed more than 25 years ago. During the intervening period, two Pay Commissions have come into force which have altered the pay structure of the employees drastically. In spite of an altogether different landscape of the pay structure, the DoPT did not come up with any revised order to amend the provisions of their OM dated 4 Oct 1989 relevant to the current pay structure. In the absence of clear guidelines, the management of Defence Establishments resorted to adhoc measures to keep their organisations running during the night hours in the intervening period. Proposals sent by MoD to DoP&T at various stages in the light of various judicial pronouncements, were rejected, sometimes on the grounds that the DoPT orders are not applicable to industrial employees.

In the current phase, the efforts being made by the defence authorities to adhere to the prescribed pay limit have proved to be frustrating because of the practical difficulties being faced by both Accounting Authorities and the Defence Estts who, due to tedious and lengthy calculations, have not been able to reach a consensus to determine the level of staff who can be deployed for performing the night duty. In the current scenario, where  the pay ceiling of Rs.2200 prn. is obsolete and meaningless, and the DoPT have  avoided prescribing a realistic ceiling that would be relevant to the current pay  structure of the Government employees, it is left upon MoD to find a solution. Even though MoD proposes to take up the matter with DoPT again for prescribing a pay ceiling based on the current pay structure, it is however felt that the decision thereon shall have reflection over the future cases only and is not likely to resolve the current cases.

6. Clause (b)

The provision in the DoPT OM dated 4 Oct 1989 (highlighted above in para 4) permits entitlement of NDA without any ceiling in respect of officials “who were getting this benefit (at that time) as per existing criteria”. In view of the fact that the pay ceiling prescribed in clause (a) is of no relevance today, it has become necessary to resolve the imbroglio by resorting to the second provision given in this OM – named as clause (b). It has been decided that till such time the new pay parameters based on the current pay structure to determine the entitlement for NDA are prescribed by the nodal Ministry, OFB/Field Offices/Defence Establishments are allowed to determine the entitlement of their employees for the purpose of NDA in terms of this clause in the DoPT OM dated 04.10.1989 that provides that there shall  be no ceiling for entitlement of NDA in respect of such officials who were getting this  benefit at that point of time as per extant criteria. So as to give a formal and concrete shape to this, the OFB and other Defence Establishments are being advised to issue a one-time office order, specifying in definite terms, the designations/ categories/levels of non-gazetted employees (Industrial and Non Industrial) who were getting this benefit of NDA in accordance with extant instructions i.e. DoPT OM dated 4 Oct 1989, so as to ensure their seamless deployment at night shifts and payment of NDA based on current pay.

7. CGDA is, therefore, requested to issue necessary directions to their lower formations to deal with the cases of payment of NDA accordingly.

8. This issues with the approval of Additional Secretary.

Non-payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance (HPCA/PCA) to the Kitchen Staff working in the Railway Hospitals

Non-payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance (HPCA/PCA) to the Kitchen Staff working in the Railway Hospitals

National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

No. I/5(g)/Part V

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir
Sub: Non-payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance (HPCA/PCA) to the Kitchen Staff working in the Railway Hospitals-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM item No. 12/2016.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-98/HW-6 dated 09/01/2008, 20/02/2013 & letter No. E(P&A)II-9/HW-6-Vol III dated 31/07/2015.
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II-98/HW-6 Vol.III dated 02/06/2016.
(iv) NFIR’s letter No.I/5(g)/Part V dated 09/06/2016.
(v) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2016/FE-/2 dated 09/11/2016 addressed to GS/NFIR

On perusal of the report of EDs Committee constituted to examine the feasibility for payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance (PCA) to the Kitchen Staff working in the Railway Hospitals/Health Units, the Federation finds that the following vital points have been ignored by the Committee while finalizing its recommendations:

• Railway Board vide letter No. E(P&A) II-98/HW-6 dated 09/01/2008 issued orders for payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance (HPCA). Patient Care Allowance (PCA) to the Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ staff working in Railway Hospitals/Health Units/Clinics with effect from 01/01/2008 pursuant to the directives issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare vide OM No. Z. 28015/24/2001-H dated 4th February 2004 duly removing ambiguity in this regard.

• The Principal Bench/CAT, New Delhi vide order dated 21st February 2014, while deciding OA No. 974/2013, has also relied on Railway Board’s circular dated 09/01/2008 and directed to pay HPCA/PCA to the Kitchen Staff working in the Railway Hospitals/Health Units/Clinics i.e. form 01/01/2008.

• Railway Board have issued orders granting HPCA/PCA to a few more categories such as Physiotherapist, Pharmacist working in the Railway Hospitals/Health Units/Clinics and these staff have been paid the HPCA/PCA w.e.f. 01/01/2008.

The Kithchen staff working in the Northern Railway Central Hospital are disappointed consequent upon issuance of unjustified order by the Railway Board for payment of HPCA/PCA from prospective date i.e. 02/06/2016 instead from 01/01/2008. A copy of representation dated 08/11/2016 received by the Federation from the Kitchen Staff of Northern Railway, Central Hospital is enclosed for reference as the representationists have been rightly demanding payment of HPCA/PCA from 01/01/2008.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to re-consider the matter and issue instructions for allowing payment of HPCA/PCA to all Kitchen Staff working in Railway Hospitals/Health Units/Clinics w.e.f. 01/01/2008.

The issue will be discussed in NFIR’s PNM meeting to be held with the Railway Board on 22nd/23rd December 2016.

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

 

The Chairman, Railway Board,
New Delhi

Respected Sir,
Sub: Payment of arrears of Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance (HPCA/PCA) to the Kitchen Staff working in the Railway Hospitals-reg.

 

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-98/HW-6 Vol.III dated 02/06/2016.

We the following staff working the Kitchen of Northern Railway Central Hospital are thankful to the Railway Board for issuing orders for payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance vide Railway Board’s orders dated 02/06/2016, pursuant to the demand raised vide NFIR’s PNM Item No. 12/2016. We are however, constrained to bring to your kind notice that our case has not been dealt with on merit and the payment of HPCA/PCA has been made w.e.f. 02/06/2016 only which is not justified.

In this connection, we place below following facts for the kind consideration and passing further orders in this case:

• That pursuant to the directives issued by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Railway Board vide letter No. E(P&A)II-98/HW-6 dated 09/01/2008 issued order for payment of HPCA/PCA to the categories of Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ staff working in the Railway Hospitals and Health Units/Clinics w.e.f 01/01/2008.

• Subsequently, some more categories of staff working in Railway Hospitals/Health Units/Clinics like Physiotherapist, Pharmacist etc., were added by the Railway Board who have also been paid HPCA/PCA w.e.f 01/01/2008.

• We are disappointed to note that in our case justice has not been awarded because payment of HPCA/PCA has been ordered only with effect from 02/02/2016, though our categories have been included vide Board’s order dated 02/06/2016.

The points mentioned above clearly established that the orders issued vide Board’s letter dated 02/06/2016 are discriminatory and do not impart justice to us.

We, therefore, request your kind honour to kindly consider our case for payment of Hospital Patient Care Allowance/Patient Care Allowance (HPCA/PCA) to us w.e.f. 01/01/2008, similar to other categories of staff receiving the Allowance since 01/01/2008 and remove discrimination.

Date: 08/11/2016
