As per Department of Personnel & Training, the benefit of reservation for the Central Government posts and services is provided to the Scheduled Tribes as a composite group and not caste/sub-caste wise. The representation of Scheduled Tribes in the posts and services of the Central Government as on 01.01.2016 is 2,76,007 as against the total employee of 32,58,663, which comes to about 8.4%.

Financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the promotion from the post of Station Master (GP Rs. 4200/- pre revised Rs. 5000-8000) to Section Controller (PB-2, G.P Rs.4200/-/ Pre revised Rs. 5500-9000)

(As per mailing list)

Sub: Financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the promotion from the post of Station Master (GP Rs. 4200/- pre revised Rs. 5000-8000) to Section Controller (PB-2, G.P Rs.4200/-/ Pre revised Rs. 5500-9000).

The issue regarding grant of financial upgradation to Section Controllers ignoring the movement from the post of Station Master to Section Controller has been consideration of Board for some time. It has been decided that appointment to the post of Section Controller (G.P Rs. 4200/-)/Rs. 5500-9000(5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (G.P Rs.4200/-)/ Rs. 5000-8000 (5th CPC) is to be treated as lateral shift instead of promotion and therefore, should not be reckoned for the purpose of MACPS.

2. However, in cases where benefit of pay fixation under Rule 1313 {FR-22(I)(a)(i)} R-II, IREC Vol-II has already been extended on appointment as Section Controller (G.P Rs. 4200/-)/Rs.5500-9000(5th CPC) from the post of Station Master (G.P Rs.4200/-)/Rs.5500-9000 (5th CPC) treating the same as promotion (including under Court’s directions) this should be reckoned for the purpose of MACPS so that double benefit of promotional pay fixation and MACPS is avoided.

3. This issue with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

4. Hindi Version will follow.

Restructuring of certain Group ‘C’ cadres – promotion benefit to the staff vacancies exited as on 01/11/2013

NFIR

No. 1/8/CRC/09/Vol.11

Dated: 08/05/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Restructuring of certain Group ‘C’ cadres – promotion benefit to the staff vacancies exited as on 01/11/2013-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 4/2014.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. 1/8/CRC/09/Vol. 10 dated 03/06/20t6.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. 1/8/CRC/09Vol. 11dated 04/09/2017.
(iv) Railway Board’s lette rNo.PC-lII/2014/FE-II/2 dated 11/09/2017.

In the NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13/14-11/2017, the Official Side gave position relating to the number of vacancies which existed as on 01/11/2013 and claimed that more than 95% normal vacancies which existed as on 01/11/2013 pertain to the same year i.e. 2013. In response Federation agreed to make back reference based on the facts and position provided by the Official Side.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that on many Zonal Railways vacancies pertaining to the year 2012 continued unfilled. Similarly, Federation takes note that in the year 2011 also, a total of 258 posts which is around 0.46% have also been lying unfilled. This position is sufficient to strengthen Federation’s demand to consider for granting proforma benefit to the staff w.e.f. 01/11/2013 who got promoted against these vacancies subsequently.

NFIR, therefore, once again urges upon the Railway Board to consider Federation’s demand and issue instructions to the Zones etc., to grant proforma benefit to the staff who have been promoted against vacancies existed prior to 01/11/2013. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)

Benchmark for promotion to administrative grades in Railway Services

Government of India (Bharat Sarkar)
Ministry of Railways(Rail Mantralaya)

New Delhi, Dated : 16.04.2018

To
The General Manager/equivalent
(All Indian Railways, PUSs, RDSO, NAIR, Directors/Training Institutes).

Subject : Benchmark for promotion to administrative grades in Railway Services.

Reference : Board’s letter No.2017/SCC/03/09 dated 01.09.17 and 23.11.17.

Board, vide letter dated 01.09.17 and 23,11.17, issued instructions regarding interpretation of the benchmark for promotion to various grades in terms of numerical grading. After considering several issues relating to interpretation of benchmark, Board have now decided to follow the following revised interpretation of benchmark in respect of APARs with numerical grading :

Grade Benchmark  as per instructions dated 15.12.15 Interpretation of benchmark consequent to introduction of APARs with numerical grading
HAG Very Good Plus – two ‘Outstanding’ and three ‘Very Good’ grading in the last five years. However, minimum ‘Very Good’ in each of the last five APARs Bench mark will continue to be ‘Very Good plus’ i.e. minimum two ‘Outstanding’ and three ‘Very Good’ grading or equivalent in the last five APARs under consideration classifying the numerical grading in terms of ‘Outstanding’, ‘Very Good’ and ‘Good’ as per Board’s instructions dated 21.07.17. A minimum grading of ‘Very Good’ is also required in each of the five APARs.
SAGand

NFSG

Very Good – The minimum performance benchmark will be ‘Very Good’ in each of the last five APARs. Bench mark will continue to be Very Good i.e. minimum grading of ‘Very Good’ in each of the last five APARs under consideration classifying the numerical grading in terms of ‘Outstanding’, ‘Very Good’ and ‘Good’ as per Board’s instructions dated 21.07.17.

A minimum grading of ‘Good’ is also required in each of the five APARs,

2. DPC should not be guided merely by the overall grading, that may be recorded in the APARs but should make its own assessment on the basis of entries in the APARs, as at times the overall grading in a APAR may be inconsistent with the grading under various parameters or attributes.

3. Railways/PUs etc. are also advised that empanelment /promotion of officers made on the basis of instructions dated 01.09.17 need not be revisited unless the same has adversely affected their promotion. Above mentioned decision should be brought to the notice of all officers working in respective Railways/PUs/CTIs.

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.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and feeder posts in a common grade – Fixation of Pay – Reg.

Ref.: (i) Deptt. of Expenditure, MoF’s OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2- 1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015

Through this missive, your kind attention is drawn towards Department of Expenditure’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010.

Now, as per instruction of the Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and who opted 6th CPC w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

However, it has to come to our knowledge that, the benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as per the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant (RP) Rules, 2008 with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010(as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions in Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP) Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this issue of revision of option to switch over to the 6th CPC in view of unforeseen events etc. to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of finance). Despite elapse of more than 12 months, no response has been received in this regard from Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance) to resolve the genuine demands of these employees.

In this connection, it is stated that as these are the unforeseen developments or change of rule, the opportunity to revise option for fixation under the Rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 may be given to these employees in these conditions, as it is more beneficial for them as now. Had they were aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation would be extended in future (as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015), they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates of promotion/financial upgradation as per the option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010.

In view of the above, you are requested to issue necessary clarifications in this regard to all the Ministries/Departments of the Government of India, so that, the aggrieved staff should get the opportunity to re-exercise their option under rule-6 of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 and get the benefit of pay fixation provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, so as to avoid financial loss to the affected staff.

With Regards!

Promotion of Defence Production

Promotion of Defence Production

Defence manufacturing is primarily driven by capital acquisition of defence equipment. Under ‘Make in India’ initiative of the Government, several measures have been taken to promote indigenous design, development and manufacture of defence equipment in the country by harnessing the capabilities of the public and private sector.

DOPT trying best to clear backlog of promotions: Dr Jitendra Singh

DOPT trying best to clear backlog of promotions: Dr Jitendra Singh

The Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) of the Ministry of Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space, Dr. Jitendra Singh said that the Department of Personnel & Training (DoPT) is trying its best to clear the backlog of promotions which had accumulated for several years. He said, while the Government led by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi follows a policy of zero tolerance towards corrupt and non-performing officers, at the same time it is also supportive towards performing officers of integrity.

Dr Jitendra Singh was responding to a delegation of Central Secretariat employees who called on him here today and sought his intervention for timely promotion of lower grade staff members. They also submitted a memorandum on behalf the Central Secretariat MTS Association, wherein it was submitted that many of the lowermost working professionals in the Government of India get deprived of even single promotion during their entire service tenure.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, in order to bring in the ease of governance as well as objectivity in empanelments, the government has, in the last three years, improvised upon the procedures so as to ensure that there are no subjective preferences involved in carrying out the promotions. The procedures have been made more hi-tech using sophisticated technology tools to minimize the human interface, he added.

He said that in the past, every government took credit for bringing in a new legislation or rule while this government has done away with nearly 1500 rules which were either obsolete or had become irrelevant with the passage of time. All this is meant not only to ensure effective and timely delivery of outcomes for the public, but also to enable the employees to perform to the best of their ability, he added.

Dr Jitendra Singh said, he himself personally feels disturbed to come across cases where some of the employees working in the lowest rung of administration spend their entire service tenure of 30 to 35 years without securing a single promotion. He said, he has discussed the issue with all the senior officers in the Ministry and several innovative means are being evolved to avoid stagnation at middle and lower rungs of administration.

Dr Jitendra Singh also regretted that in a large number of cases, stagnation in promotions was the result of litigation amongst the employees themselves and even though the DoPT tries its best to put forward its view in the court of law, the delay becomes inevitable.

CIVIL APPELLATE JURISDICTION

CIVIL APPEAL NO(S). 4751-4752/2011

V. LAKSHMIKANTHAN AND ANR.

APPELLANT(S)

VERSUS

UNION OF INDIA AND ORS. ETC.

RESPONDENT(S)

J U D G E M E N T

KURIAN, J.

1. Though several contentions are raised in these appeals, finally the learned counsel for the appellants has come down to one submission, since according to him, he is entitled to succeed on that. That submission pertains to the direction in R.K. Sabharwal and Others v. State of Punjab and Others, (1995) 2 SCC 745, regarding post based roster in the matter of promotions. It was made clear in R.K. Sabharwal (supra) that 10.02.1995 shall be the date for the purpose of following the post based roster. It appears, the Respondent No.2 was still not following the same which led to the decision in Union of India and Ors. v. Virpal Singh Chauhan and Others, (1995) 6 SCC 684. In paragraph 33 in Virpal Singh Chauhan (supra) it was made clear that the Railways

has to follow the principles as laid down in R.K. Sabharwal (supra). Paragraph Nos. 29 and 33 of the same are extracted below:
