AIRF: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

AIRF: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

AIRF

 No.AIRF/387

Dated: September 7, 2017

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

Ref.: Meeting with the AM(Staff), Railway Board held on 04.08.2017

Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen

 

Please refer to our discussion held in the chamber of AM(Staff), Railway Board, on the above subject matter on 4th August, 2017. All India Railwaymen’s Federation (AIRF) has already explained in detail its viewpoint in respect of calculation formula for payment of PLB to Railwaymen.

You may recall that, PLB has been an outcome of the bilateral agreement between Ministry of Railways and Staff Side Federations, which was arrived at on 22.11.1979. The formula for calculation of PLB, that was formulated as a result of above-mentioned agreement, is sacrosanct, on the basis of which payment of PLB is being made to entitled railway employees every year till last financial year.

AIRF is totally against any deviation in the well settled formula devised to calculate PLB payable to railway employees under the said agreement.

It is, therefore, urged that, payment of PLB for financial year 2016-17 should be made on the basis of established formula as mentioned above and there should not be any effort to make any amendment in the same as also number of days, calculated last year for payment of PLB, should not be reduced, else this will lead to unwarranted impairment in industrial peace.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to be paid in the current year 2017

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2017/PLB-3 dated 02/08/2017.

 

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to the discussions held on 4th August, 2017 in the Chamber of Additional Member (Staff), wherein the Federation has explained the need to acord approval for payment if Productivity Linked Bonus equivalent to not less than 78 days wages as was done in the previous years.

 

NFIR again places the facts as below for immediate action for sanction:

  • The output given by Railway employees has been very much on high side particularly in the context of non-filling of over 2lakh vacancies and additional burden borne by the existing staff since the last two years.
  • Capital input should not be taken into consideration as the utilization of the said capital is not in the hands of workers.
  • During the previous six years, the PL Bonus was paid to the Railway employees equivalent to 78 days wages, therefore any reduction in number of days would cause serious resentment in view of the fact that Rail Workforce has been contributing for productivity inspite of difficult working conditions and heavy shortage of staff due to non-filling of vacancies and non-creation of new posts for new assets built.
  • In fact, the Railway Ministry should consider motivating the staff by granting more number of days wages than previous year at this juncture.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly take action for sanctioning the P.L. Bonus equivalent to not less than 78 days wages. It is also requested that payment may be arranged before commencement of Dussehra Pooja Holidays.

 

Federation may be kept apprised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully

Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay Rs.4200

Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay Rs.4200

Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay

No. I/2/Part IV

Dated: 05/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub : Grant of increment on promotion within merged scales in the same Grade Pay Rs.4200 – reg.

Ref: FA & CAO/T/SC Railway’s letter No. ACP/KOO/Pt. VI (Restructuring) dated 06/01/2017 & 21/03/2017 and letter No. ACP/AO2/Pt. VI dated 01/08/2017 to Railway Board.

Federation invites attention of the Railway Board to the letters of FA & CAO/T/SC cited under reference, seeking clarification as to whether the staff promoted from same Grade Pay to same Grade Pay (Rs.GP 4200) i.e. from the post of Senior Cashier (GP 4200) to the post of Inspector of Cashier (10C/GP 4200) are entitled to draw an additional increment as they are shouldering responsibilities.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that the references sent by the South Central Railway have been pending in Board’s Office since Jan 2017, even though the employees are eligible for additional increment on promotion to identical Grade Pay, shouldering higher responsibilities in terms of Rule S-13.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions allowing benefit under S13 to GM, S.C. Railway, endorsing copy to other Zonal Railways as well to the Federation.

Yours faithfully

Implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission – payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum

7th CPC – Payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum

No. III/DR/2/Part IV

Dated : 05/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission – payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum-reg.

Federation invites kind attention of Railway Board to para 8.16.14 of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission, according to which, the Track Maintainers, Running Staff Car Drivers, Points Man, Technicians in Workshops etc., on Indian Railways who are supplied uniform and are required to wear dress regularly have been recommended to be paid Rs. 5000/- per year as Dress Allowance (including shoes).

Vide foot note to the above recommendation, the 7th CPC has also recommended that the Ministries/Departments may take a decision on “whether the rates should be Rs. 5000/- per year or Rs. 10,000/- per year“. This recommendation has been accepted by the Government.

In this connection, NFIR points out that the Dress Allowance amount of Rs.5000/- per annum is very much inadequate to take care of the annual requirement of the staff in Railways, particularly due to the reason that staff of Railway categories’ are required to wear the uniform regularly while on duty as per extant rules.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider payment of Dress Allowance at Rs.10,000/- per annum to the Track Maintainers, Running Staff, Ticket Checking Staff, Pointsmen, Technicians etc., and accordingly issue instructions to GMs etc.,

A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

Option for pay fixation in the 7 CPC Pay Matrix levels to the Railway employees during the period 01/01/2016 to 25/07/2017

No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/RB-Part II

Dated: 04/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Option for pay fixation in the 7 CPC Pay Matrix levels to the Railway employees during the period 01/01/2016 to 25/07/2017-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Ministry’s Notification vide RBE No. 90/2016 dated 29/07/2016.

(ii)     Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/1/6/2 dated 20/10/2016 – RBE No. 124/2016.

(iii) NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC (Imp)/2016/RB-Part I dated 16/01/2017 & 07/08/2017.

(iv)    Railway Board’s reply to NFIR vide No. PC-VII/2017/R-U/7 dated 31/03/2017.

Further to the above cited references, Federation has since found that on Zonal Railways, option 2 given by staff had not been accepted on the wrong plea that option opportunity has been allowed to those promoted/got financial upgradation under MACPS/got increment during the period 01/01/2016 and 28/07/2016 (i.e. date of notification). In this connection, Federation cites below the following instances as example:

(i)  Employees promoted between 29/07/2016 to 28/10/2016 and exercised option for fixation of pay in 7th CPC within the stipulated period electing option No. 2.

The pay of the Technicians GP 2800/Level 5 on promotion as Sr. Technicians GP 4200/Level 6 on 27/10/2016 has been fixed in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix as shown vide ‘A’ below whereas pursuant to option No. 2 exercised by staff, they are entitled for pay fixation on promotion as shown vide ‘B’ below:

Pay in 6th CPC as on 01/01/2016 GP 2800 Pay Revised & fixed in 7th CPC
w.e.f. 01/01/2016
Pay in 7th CPC as on 27/10/2016  Pay in 6th CPC
when continued
upto 27/10/2016
Pay in 6th CPC on promotion to GP 4200 as on 27/10/2016 Pay required tofixed in 7th CPC taking into account option
12970 34900 35900 13360
(10560+2800)
15160
(10960+4200)
39900

Unfortunately, the staff have been denied their legitimate pay fixation benefit even after submission of their correct option in time.

(ii)  Another aberration is that in the case of Technicians who have been granted cadre restructuring w.e.f. 01/09/2016 vide RBE No. 116/2016, the Zonal Railways have issued promotion orders belatedly while at the same time, option opportunity not allowed, consequently pay fixation has been granted vide ‘A’ below instead granting pay fixation benefit (on the basis of re-option) as ‘B’ below:

Pay in 6th CPC as on 01/01/2016 Pay Revised &
fixed in 7th CPC
as on 01/01/2016
Pay in 7th CPC as on 01/09/2016 in L5 Pay in 6th CPC when continued till 31/08/2016 Pay in 6th CPC on promotion in GP 4200 as on 01/09/2016 Pay    to   be    fixed
with option in 7th CPC in L6
15210 39200 40400 15670
(12870+2800)
17540
(13340+4200)
46,200

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the above situations and issue clear clarificatory instructions, granting pay fixation benefit on the basis of re-option being exercised by staff as per charts ‘B’ above.NFIR contends that in as much as promotion allowed w.e.f. 01/09/2016, such staff are entitled for option opportunity in terms of RBE No. 90/2016 and 124/2016.

Illegal withdrawal of Family Planning Allowance withdrawal of orders urged

NFIR: Illegal withdrawal of Family Planning Allowance withdrawal of orders urged

No. 1/5(g)/Part VI

Dated: 04/09/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Illegal withdrawal of Family Planning Allowance -withdrawal of orders -urged.

Ref: (i)   Railway Board’s letter No. PC V/2008/A/O/2 (FPA) dated 14/10/2008 (RBE No. 151/2008).

(ii). Railway Board’s letter No. PC V/2017/A/FPA/1 dated 28/07/2017 (RBE No.77/2017).

The Railway Board vide instructions dated 28/07/2017 (RBE No. 77/2017) has discontinued Family Planning Allowance hitherto allowed to the serving employees, having undergone Family Planning Operation with effect from 1st July 2017, citing Government’s decision on the recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission. In this connection, NFIR invites Railway Board’s attention to the following valid points for reviewing its decision:-

(a) The 7th CPC vide para 8.17.50 of its report has observed as follows:-

“the level of awareness regarding appropriate family size has also gone up among the government servants, Hence, a separate allowance aimed towards population control is not required now. Accordingly, it is recommended that Family Planning Allowance should be abolished.”

The Ministry of Finance vide OM F.No. 12(4)/2016-EIII.A dated 7th July 2017 has decided to accept. the recommendation of 7th CPC which means that the provision for granting Family Planning Allowance stood abolished henceforth (i.e. July 1, 2017).

(b) Nowhere, the 7th CPC has recommended for discontinuance of Family Planning Allowance already allowed in the past in terms of Government’s decision – OM No. 7(39)E.III/79 dated 4th December, 1979. In view of this, the Railway Board’s decision vide para 2 of its letter dated 28th July 2017 (RBE 77/2017) that Family Planning Allowance, as admissible hitherto, shall cease to exist in all cases, is not only illegal but also highly unjustified. It needs to be appreciated that the said Family Planning Allowance has been allowed as a result of conscious decision taken by Government decades back. Withdrawing the said allowance for the past cases is unconstitutional, leading to avoidable litigation.

(c)  7th Schedule of the Constitution’s 42nd amendment, inserted (C) Entry 20-A, providing for population control and family planning is one of the constitutional provisions. As a follow up to the said constitutional provision, the Government had granted incentive in the form of Family Planning Allowance to encourage small families and several employees have fulfilled the norms prescribed for entitlement of the said incentive and got the said allowance. Withdrawing the said Family Planning Allowance allowed already, at this stage by mis-quoting 7th CPC recommendation and Government’s decision is bad in law and also immoral.

(d) NFIR, further reiterates that a careful reading of 7th CPC recommendation reveals that the Family Planning Allowance be abolished as the Commission has never stated that the allowance already allowed be withdrawn/discontinued or should cease to exist in all cases.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly correct para 2 of letter dated 28th July 2017 suitably for continuing the Family Planning Allowance in those cases where it was rightly granted pursuant to Government’s Policy decision. NFIR suggests that in case the Railway Ministry is not convinced with the logic and facts placed above, the Federation’s contentions may be sent to the Ministry of Finance for clarification. Federation may please be replied on action being taken on the subject early.

Yours faithfully

S/d,

Relaxation of residency period for promotion of Jr. Accounts Asstt (GP 2800/-) as Accounts Asstt (GP 4200/-) on Indian Railways

No. II/6/Part 8

Dated: 23/08/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Relaxation of residency period for promotion of Jr. Accounts Asstt (GP 2800/-) as Accounts Asstt (GP 4200/-) on Indian Railways-reg.

NFIR invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the provisions made in the Indian Railway Establishment Manual Vol. I (2009 Edition) – Para 171 (5) wherein it has been stipulated that the posts of Accounts Assistants in GP 4200/PB-2 will be filled by promotion of Jr. Accounts Assistants in GP 2800/- on completion of three years service in the Grade and on passing Appendix-ll Examination. The said para of the IREM is reproduced below:-

“The posts in the grade of Accounts Assistants in Scale Rs. 1400-2600 will be filled by promotion of Junior Accounts Assistants in Scale Rs. 1200-2040 after they have completed three years service in the grade and passed Appendix II examination. Provided that the condition of passing the Appendix II Examination will not be applicable to those Jr. Accounts Assistants, who were promoted as such against un-qualified senior suitable quota as per clause 3 (ii) above”.

2. Further the Federation brings to the notice of Railway Board that vide provision contained in Para 215 (a) of IREM (Rules governing the promotion of Group ‘C’ Staff) – Section B/Chapter I, it has been laid down that for promotion within Group ‘C’, a minimum of 2 years service in the immediate lower Grade is necessary.

In view of the above, Federation proposes that the minimum residency period of three years for promotion of J AA to Accounts Assistants with the condition of passing Appendix 11 IREM Examination be reduced to two years for ensuring equitable justice to staff.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly consider the above points and amend the extant provision of 3 years residency period to two years as is in vogue in other than Accounts Department/which would enable appendix qualified staff to get promotion to the post of Accounts Assistant.

Federation may please be replied of action being taken on the above proposal.

Yours faithfully,
sd/-

As agenda was given only by NFIR, on the NFIR agenda items remarks were circulated to the participants of the meeting.

4. Dr. M. Raghaviiah, General Secretary, NFIR staied in his introduction speech that the definition of anomaly should be interpreted liberally. The official side and the staff side should jointly workout a consensus to identify the issues coming wiihin the definition of ‘anomaly’ to ensure that Railway employees are given justice’ He said that careful examination and ground realities would reveal that anomalies arisen in Railways specific categories are needed to he addressed judiciously. He also brought out following issues/suggestions.

  • During the implementation of 6th CPC after due discussions Ministry of Railways sent a detailed proposal in respect of various anomalies especially in respect of pay structure of Technical Supervisors to Ministry of Finance and DoP&T. However, Ministry of Railways failed to place these proposals before 7th CPC.
  • Till the implementation of 6th CPC recommendations the pay structure of Technical Supervisors were placed on a higher pedestal on comparison With pay structure of the corresponding categories of Accounts Department. With the implementation of 6th CPC pay structure the relatives in the case of the Technical Supervisors category of Indian Railways got disturbed and 7th CPC also did not address this core issue which is affecting thousands of employees.
  • Various proposals/references sent to the Ministry of Finance and Department of Personnel and Training are not getting addressed and thereby the issues remain unresolved. As such Ministry of Railways may try find out an in house mechanism for addressing these issues. In support of this, past precedent of 1997 was quoted.
  • Certain factual inaccuracies have crept into the 7th CPC Report which need to be addressed. For example, though there was demand from the federations to raise the entry qualification in respect of Assistant Loco to Diploma as recommended by Dr.Anil Kakodar, Chairman, HLSRC, wheras, the 7th CPC had wrongly quoted in its report that Federations have demanded Degree qualification. He cited para 11.40.63 of the 7th CPC report and wanted DAC to take note of this for appropriate action.

5. W.r.t the points raised by Dr. Raghavaiah, the Offical Side clarified that all the factual position and historical background were brought before 7th CPC w.r.t the anomalies existing in respect of the pay structure of Technical supervisors.

6. Shri Shiv Gopal Mishra, General Secretary/AIRF took up the issue regarding upgradation of pay structure in respect of Accounts, and CMA cadre as per the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission and stated that there has been no action on implementing these recommendations.

7. As regards, AIRF’s is Sue regarding upgradation of pay structure of various categories of Indian Railways, it was stated by Official Side that while approving the recommendations of 7th CPC, Ministry of Finance in its resolution dated 25.07.2016 decided to refer the recommendations of 7th CPC to upgrade the pay structure of thirteen categories in various Ministries including Accounts and CMA cadres of Indian Railways to DoP&T for taking a comprehensive view. In pursuance of the decision of Ministry of Finance the issue was referred to DoP&T enclosing all the communications made by Ministry of Railways with 7th CPC and implementation Cell in this regard. DoP&T after due consideration, in the first week of April 2017 returned these proposals stating that in terms of Transaction of Business Rule (TBR) the upgradation of pay structure is an issue coming under the domain of Department of Expenditure and accordingly advised to refer the issue to Department of Expenditure for taking a decision. The matter is under submission to Board for sending to Department of Expenditure. While acknowledging the 7th CPC recommendation and the Federation’s demand in this case, the Official Side also pointed out that historical relatives across cadres have to be kept in mind.

8. The 28 point agenda given by NFIR was briefly taken up for discussion. The comments of the Nodal Directorate on these issues were shared to all the delegates in the meeting. It is observed that certain issue such as item no. 20 (Perfusionist in Railways) item no. 18 (Dietician in Railways) already stand resolved. However, point wise detailed discussion of the agenda was not taken up for study to enable the Federation to respond to these comments.
