Grant of full sets of Post Retirement Complimentary Passes (PRCP) to staff retired in GP 1800

Grant of full sets of Post Retirement Complimentary Passes (PRCP) to staff retired in GP 1800/-

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No.E(W)2010/PS 5-8/4

New Delhi, dated 11.03.2016

General Secretary
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen

New Delhi – 110 055.

Sub: Grant of full sets of post Retirement Complimentary Passes (PRCP) to staff retired in GP 1800/- (erstwhile Group “D”)

Ref: NFIR’s letter No.I/15/Part III dated 04.01.2016.

Dear Sir,

With reference to above cited letter, it is stated that the crux of Board’s letter of even number dated 17.07.2012 was that employees retiring from Group “C” posts with GP 1800/- would be automatically eligible for two sets of PRCP. On the other hand, the crux of Board’s letter No.E(W)2012/PS5-1/5 dated 05.08.2014 was that employees who were never granted the status of Group “C” and retired as Group “D” cannot be extended two sets of PRCP. These two letters are, thus not contradictory to each other, and the latter only supplyements the former and brings out the position that only those who retired as Group “C” staff are entitled to 2 sets of PRCP and not those who retired as Group “D” staff in the same GP of Rs.1800/-, before upgradation of these posts.

2. Further,the issue for grant of 2 sets of PRCP to all those employees who retired in the G.P. of Rs.1800/-, irrespective of classification as Group “C” was raised in DC/JCM Meeting (Item No.18/2012) and PNM Forum. The demand was examined in consultation with Finance & Pay Commission Directorates and also at Board’s level. However, the same was not found feasible of acceptance in view of financial and other implications.

Yours Faithfully,

Sd/-

For Secretary/Railway Board
