Inclusion of a Parent as well as “Medical Attendant” in Special Passes issued on medical grounds in favour of minor children of railway employees.

RBE No.:104/2018

ADVANCE CORRECTION SLIP No: 77

Government of India
Ministry of Railways
(Railway Board)

No.E(W)2015/PS5-1/1

New Delhi, dated 03.08.2018

The General Managers (P)
All Zonal Railways &
Production Units.

Sub: Inclusion of a Parent as well as “Medical Attendant” in Special Passes issued on medical grounds in favour of minor children of railway employees.

In the PNM/AIRF Meeting with Board, the Federation had raised the issue regarding non-inclusion of a parent in the Special Passes issued for outstation medical treatment of children of railway employees due to absence of necessary provision in the extant Pass Rules.

2. The issue has been examined in detail and in order to obviate the difficulties in such cases, it has been decided with the approval of the Competent Authority to incorporate the following provision in Schedule VII (Special Passes) of the Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 (Second Edition- 1993) as item No.5 (below Note of Item No.4) under Column 3. ‘Entitlement/facilities’ :-

“5. In case of minor children (i.e. boys under the age of 15 years and girls under the age of 18 years), if referred to outstation hospitals for medical treatment, Special Passes in favour of
(i) railway servant or his/her spouse,
(ii) minor child requiring treatment and
(iii) a Medical Attendant (who may be a family member or dependent or any other person) will be issued.

The pass will ordinarily be issued for the class of entitlement of the railway servant on privilege account or in higher class, if otherwise admissible under these rules.”

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

Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC)

Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC).

NFIR

No. I/11/Part I

Dated: 30/07/2018

The Secretary (E), Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC)-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 11/2008.

(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VI/2010/I/7/5/1 dated 14/03/2012.

The Railway Board vide letter dated 14/03/2012 had issued instructions to the Zonal Railways etc to grant two additional increments to the Nursing Staff possessing B.Sc. Degree as additional qualification in terms of para 160(2) (iii) of IREM Vol-I,1989 Edition, on the basis of pay drawn in 6th CPC Pay Band. These instructions were issued as a result of demand raised by NFIR vide PNM Item No. 11/2008.

Federation has since received representations from the Nursing staff of some Zonal Railways that the payment of two additional increments, based on the revised rates of 7th CPC is not yet ensured w.e.f. 01/01/2016, (the date of implementation of 7th CPC pay matrix) and payment continued at the old rates of 6th CPC Pay Band. The non-revision of additional increments rate has been causing hardships to the staff and grievances continued from Nursing Personnel.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly issue suitable clarification to all Zonal Railways/Production Units to grant two additional increments (3% each on 7th CPC Pay) from 01-01-2016 to the Nursing Personnel. A copy of instructions issued may please be endorsed to Federation.

Yours faithfully
S/d,

Regarding Policy on Drunkenness on Duty – NFIR

Regarding Policy on Drunkenness on Duty – NFIR

No. IV/Safety/A

NFIR

Dated: 30/07/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Policy on ‘Drunkenness on Duty’-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 29/2018 – discussed in the PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 10th/11th May , 2018.

(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. 2001/Safety-I/23/4 dated 27/11/2001.
(iii) Railway Board’s letter No. 2009/Safety(DM)/6/12/Committee dated 02/11/2012.
(iv) Railway Board’s letter No.2009/Safety(DM)/6/12/Committee dated 20/052014 addressed to the Federation.
(v) Railway Board’s letter No. 2009/Safety(DM)/6/12/Committee dated 18/04/2017.
(vi) NFIR’s letter No. IV/Safety/A dated 09/06/2014, 12th July 2017 & 07/08/2017.
(vii) Railway Board’s letter No. 2009/Safety (DM)/6/12 Committee dated 01/06/2018.

During discussions in the NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 10th/11th May, 2018, Federation handed over a copy of letter dated 09/11/2017 issued by the General Manager, South Central Railway to DRMs regarding holding of 2′1 Breath Analyzer Test. The Official Side accordingly agreed to issue appropriate clarification to all Zonal Railways in the matter. In this connection, Federation takes note that the Railway Board vide letter dated 01/06/2018 has issued clarification to the Zonal Railways.

The Federation has since learnt that the PCEE, South Central Railway vide letter dated 16/07/2018 has made reference to the Railway Board citing Board’s letter dated 01/06/2018, seeking clarification which in fact not needed and has also made some unnecessary suggestions. The PCEE, S.C. Railway has in fact suggested to include “issuance of major penalty charge sheet” to the crew when found positive in BA test while “signing off”, which action is unfortunate. A copy of PCEE/SCR’s letter dated 16/07/2018 is enclosed for reference.

Citing Board’s instructions dated 15/10/2014, attempt has also been made by S.C. Railway to introduce the concept of Aptitude test in the channel of promotion of Loco Pilot (Goods) to Loco Pilot (Pass) on the pretext of SPAD cases. An objectionable suggestion has also been made to remove Running Staff (LP/ALP) involved in SPAD from the running cadre and absorb them in other Department. At the same time, there is another suggestion made by S.C. Railway to take up nominated Loco Inspector under D&AR whose Loco Pilot is involved in alleged SPAD.

In the above context, NFIR desires to convey to the Railway Board that:-

3.1   Railway Board’s instructions dated 01/06/2018 are sufficient to address the issues.

3.2  The suggestion for holding Aptitude test again to the Loco Pilot (Goods) for promotion to Loco Pilot (Pass) will not produce better results, on the other hand lead to staff demoralization. There is therefore no need to disturb the extant policy.

3.3 The suggestion of taking away LP/ALP involved in SPAD from running cadre is imprudent and will contribute for avoidable problems. Instead resorting to such negative methods, a realistic assessment on incidents happened and effective motivation involving organized labour representatives is needed.

3.4 On the suggestion to take up nominated Loco Inspector under D&AR, whose Loco Pilot has passed signal at danger, Federation desires to state that it is like punishing Director of IAS Academy, who had imparted training to an IAS Probationer in the Academy few years ago, on Law and Order situation where the trainee after gaining experience failed to control the Law and Order situation. It has been unheard that the Director of IAS Academy has been punished for the failure of a District Magistrate. If Railway Board attempts to issue such an instruction, in that event Sr.DEEs/Sr.DMEs and CMEs/CEEs should also be taken up in cases of SPAD wherever taking place. Federation fails to understand as to why CLIs/LIs are to be made scapegoats, for the errors/mistakes (bonafide or otherwise) committed by. Loco Pilots. Such steps would be unethical, unprofessional, highly irregular and grossly illegal. Therefore, the suggestion made by the PCEE/SCR is not proper.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly address the issues duly taking into consideration, the Federation’s views. A separate meeting with PED (Safety) may also be convened to enable to the Federation to explain its views more elaborately.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

Procedure for Direct Recruitment in Level-1 (7th CPC pay matrix)

Direct recruitment from open market in Level-1 (7th CPC pay matrix) – Procedure-regarding

RBE No. 102/2018

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No. E(NG)II/2008/RR-I/33 (3010339)

RBE No. 102/2018

New Delhi, dated 18.07.2018

The General Manager (P),
All Zonal Railways/Production Units,
(As per standard mailing list).

Sub: Direct recruitment from open market in Level-1 (7th CPC pay matrix) – Procedure-regarding.

The non-materialization of full panel despite all out efforts made by the Railway recruiting agencies has been engaging the attention of the Board. Accordingly, the procedure for recruitment from open market in Level-1 was reviewed and following decisions taken with respect to different instructions issued from time to time:-

i) Para I (ii) of instructions contained under RBE No. 138/2014 dated 10.12.2014 lays down that “the number of candidates called for Physical Efficiency Test (PET) should be 02 (two) times the number vacancies”.

In modification of above, the number of candidates to be called for PET should now be 03 (three) times the number notified vacancies.

ii) Para 3 of instructions contained in RBE No. 73/2008 dated 17.06.2008 lays down that “the number of candidates called for Document Verification (DV) shall be 20% over & above the number of vacancies”.

In modification of above, henceforth, the number of candidates to be called for DV shall be twice the number of notified vacancies.

iii) Para 2 of instructions contained in RBE No. 06/2014 dated 10.01.2014 stipulates that “no replacement panels are to be given against non-joining of selected candidates”.

In modification of the above, it has been decided that the panel will now be formed to the extent of the notified vacancies with a standby panel of 50% of the notified vacancies. In case the main panel plus stand-by is also exhausted and still there is a shortfall vis-a-vis notified vacancies, the recruiting agency may further go down in the list of candidates which meet the requirement of minimum qualifying marks in their respective community for conducting PET(If needed) and DV/ME to the extent of shortfall community-wise. This may be done till the demand from the concerned Railway administration w.r.t indent placed and vacancies notified is fully met. These provisions shall be subject to currency of the panel.

2. The above guidelines will also be applicable to recruitment notification published under centralized Employment Notice No. 02/2018, issued by Railway Recruitment Boards.

Please acknowledge receipt.

NFIR: Revision of Kilometrage rates and other Allowances of Running Staff

Revision of Kilometrage rates and other Allowances of Running Staff

No. IV/RSAC/Conf./Part IX

Dated: 19/07/2018

Shri Ashwani Lohani,
Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi.

Dear Sir,
Sub: Revision of Kilometrage rates and other Allowances of Running Staff – Summary Record note of discussions held on 04th and 05th January 2018 and meeting held between the Board (MS, FC, DG/P) and Federations on 10th March, 2018.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s file No. E (P&A) II/2013/Rs-14.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/RSAC/Conf./Part IX dated 12/01/2018 & 07/02/2018 to Secretary, Railway Board, copy endorsed to EDPC-I and ED (IR), Railway Board.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/RSAC/Conf./Part. IX dated 16/04/2018 addressed to CRB & copy enclosed to MS, FC, DG(P) etc.

During discussions on some important staff issues on 06th June, 2018 and thereafter, you have assured that the Railway Board would revise the kilometrage rates and other Allowances of Running Staff satisfactorily very soon, taking into account the NFIR’s proposal seeking revision at Rs. 648.

In this connection, I request you to kindly appreciate that the abnormal delay in obtaining the concurrence of Ministry of Finance for revision of kilometrage allowance rates has been causing disappointment among Running Staff. I further bring to your kind notice that while revision of various Allowances has already been granted from 1st July, 2017, this particular case of revision of kilometrage rates for Running Staff is continued to remain pending even after lapse of one year.

I therefore, request you to kindly intervene to see that concurrence of Ministry of Finance is obtained at the earliest for revising the kilometrage rates of Running Staff with retrospective effect. A line in reply is solicited.

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

Rs 1800/-) to go on mutual transfer without insisting on “corresponding cadre.” The matter has been reviewed. It has been decided that in relaxation of the above provisions,  and an erstwhile  Group “D” employee working in (G.P Rs.1800/-) belonging to any Department/Cadre of a Division/Office/Railway/PU/Unit without applicability of the term “corresponding cadre”. This dispensation is, however, subject to the fulfilment of the prescribed Medical Standard. The staff so transferred should invariably be imparted requisite training in the new Unit wherever considered essential before putting him/her on a working post. This training period will be counted as duty. These instructions are intended only for effecting transfer on mutual exchange basis in Level-I posts and not for any other kind of transfer.

3. The existing provisions in respect of all other non-gazetted railway employees working in Level-2 and above shall remain unaltered.

4. Accordingly, the Indian Railway Establishment Manual, Vol.l, (Revised Edition-2009) is ammended as per ACS No. 250 enclosed.

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)

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.

Sub: Administrative / disciplinary action against Malpractices Detected by Executive

A Zonal Railway has recently detected two cases wherein salary payments have been made to non- existent staff. These two cases were detected by the Personnel/Finance Departments who subsequently handed over these cases to Vigilance for further inquiry.

Administrative/ disciplinary action against malpractices is the primary responsibility of the Executive. It is important that the concerned department which has discovered he fraud takes appropriate administrative /disciplinary action on its own initiative in cases where clear irregularity has been detected by them. Administrative action such as suspension/transfer to prevent further damage and tampering of evidence should be taken immediately. Issuing of charge-sheet for fraud discovered by the department itself should be initiated by the department concerned where clear cut irregularity has already been identified, instead of waiting for a further investigation by Vigilance. Immediate action is necessary to ensure that there is visible impact and a message that the administration will come down hard on corruption is sent down the line.

Nevertheless, when cases where clear-cut prima facie corruption/irregularity have occurred, such as in the cases mentioned above, and these have been handed over to vigilance for further investigation, they must be investigated on top priority. Vigilance must work towards completing the investigation reports and putting them up as per procedure within a period of 15 days. Delay occurring due to non-availability of documents or obtaining of clarificatory statements etc, may be brought to the notice of the PHODs/GM for quick resolution.

Necessary action in this regard may be taken accordingly. This has been issued with approval of PED/Vigilance.

Attention is invited to Railway Board’s letter No. PC VI/2009/I/4/R/1 dated 27.11.2009 (RBE No.209/2009) circulating DOPT’s OM No. AB/14017/64/2008-Ectt(RR) dated 24.04.2009 & 25.09.2009 for adoption in favour of Railway officers of organised Group ‘A’ Services in PB-3 and PB-4.

2. It was subsequently clarified by DOP&T vide their OM No. AB.14017/39/2009- Estt.(RR) dated 02.04.2012 that the NFU to organised Group ‘A’ services shall not be applicable to the officers in those Organised Services where FCS and DACP Schemes are already operating and where officers are already separately covered by their own in-situ Progression scheme. However, Hon’ble Delhi High court in WP(C) No. 4067/2014 and WP(C) No. 4073/2014 vide orders dated 13.10.2014 quashed the Dop&T’s OM dated 02.04.2012. Since the said judgement of Hon’ble High court attained finality as Hon’ble supreme court dismissed the SLP and Review in the case, DoPT&T decided to declare their OM dated 02.04.2012 as non-est, as conveyed vide their OM No.CS-14017/1/2018-Estt.(RR)(Pt.I) dated 25.04.2018.

3. There has been a demand of IRMS officers also for extension of the benefits of NFU Scheme and the issue has been the subject matter of litigation. Hon’ble Central Administrative Tribunal vide their orders dated 28.09.2017 in O.A.No.3290/2017 (Indian Railway Medical Services Association & Anr vs DOP&T & Anr) allowed the relief in terms of the judgement of Hon’ble Delhi High Court in W.P.(C ) No: 4067/2014. The matter was accordingly referred to DOP&T.

4. DOP&T have considered the issue in consultation with Department of Expenditure and conveyed their non-objection to the Ministry of Railways to extend NFU benefits to IRMS doctors. ‘Accordingly, Ministry of Railways have decided to grant the benefit of Non-Functional Upgradation CNFU Scheme as applicable to Organized Group ‘A’ services of Railways to IRMS Officers as per the detailed terms and conditions as have been in vogue from time to time after introduction of the scheme. Accordingly, grant of higher scale / benefits under the scheme would be admissible w.e.f. 1.1.2006, where due and admissible, as provided in the original instructions under reference.
