Cabinet approves Productivity Linked Bonus for Railway Employees Payment before Dussehra/Puja Festival season Incentive to Improve Productivity and Efficiency of Railways

Cabinet approves Productivity Linked Bonus for Railway Employees Payment before Dussehra/Puja Festival season Incentive to Improve Productivity and Efficiency of Railways

railway-employees-bonus-78-days

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has given its approval to pay Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) equivalent to 78 days wages to eligible non-gazetted railway employees (excluding RPF/RPSF personnel) for the financial year 2016-17. About 12.30 lakh non-gazetted Railway employees are likely to benefit from the decision. This payment will be made before Dussehra/Puja holidays, bringing a smile to lakhs of families ahead of the festive season.

The payment of PLB would serve as an incentive, and result in motivating a large number of Railway employees, particularly those involved in execution and operations of railways, to improve their productivity and ensure safety, speed and service for Railway customers. Indian Railways operates on the principle of maximum public welfare, and in this context, this bonus payment will help in improving accountability and efficiency in railways operations.

The financial implication of payment of 78 days’ PLB to railway employees has been estimated to be Rs. 2,245.45 crores. The wage calculation ceiling prescribed for payment of PLB is Rs. 7,000/- p.m. The maximum amount payable per eligible railway employee is Rs. 17,951 for 78 days.

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,

S/d,

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.

Guidelines on leave and voluntary retirement of Railway Employees – Persons with Disabilities

Guidelines on leave and voluntary retirement of Railway Employees – Persons with Disabilities

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
RAILWAY BOARD

RBE No.107/2017

No.E(P&A)l-2017/CPC/LE-5

New Delhi, dated 30.08.2017

The General Managers and Principal Financial Advisers,
All Indian Railways & Production Units.

Sub: Guidelines on leave and voluntary retirement of Railway servants in light of the provisions of the Section 47 of Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995.

In pursuance of Department of Personnel & Training’s OM No.18017/1/2014-Estt(L) dated 25.02.2015 and OM No. 25012/1/2015-Estt(A-IV) dated 19.05.2015, the issues relating to leave and notice of voluntary retirement of Railway servants who have acquired a disability while in service are required to be dealt with in the light of the provisions of the Section 47 of Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995.

2. Leave applied on medical certificate in connection with disability should not be refused or revoked without reference to a Medical Authority, whose advice shall be binding. The ceiling on maximum permissible leave laid down in Rule 510 of IREC Vol-1 may not be applied to leave on medical certificate applied in connection with the disability. Any leave debited for the period after a Railway servant is declared incapacitated shall be remitted back into his/her leave account. For a Railway servant who is unable to submit an application or medical certificate on account of disability, an application/medical certificate submitted by a family member may be accepted.

3. Further, keeping in view the provisions of the Section 47 of PWD Act, 1995 and the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Bhagwan Dass & Anr Vs Punjab State Electricity Board (2008) 1 5CC 579, it has been decided that whenever a Railway servant seeks voluntary retirement citing medical grounds, or when the said notice has been submitted due to a disability, the administrative authorities shall examine as to whether the case is covered under Section 47 of PWD Act, 1995. In case the provisions are applicable, the Railway servant shall be advised that he/she has the option of continuing in service with the same pay scale and service benefits.

3.1 In case a disabled Railway servant reconsiders his decision and withdraws the notice for voluntary retirement, his case shall be dealt with under the provisions of the Section 47 of PWD Act, 1995. If however, in spite of being so advised, such Government servant still wishes to take voluntary retirement, the request may be processed as per applicable rule.

4. It is requested to keep the above in view while processing cases of requests for voluntary retirement and leave from disabled Railway servants under the provisions of the Section 47 of PWD Act, 1995.

5. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railway.

6. Please Acknowledge receipt.

7th Central Pay Commission -Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprive of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2-reg

N.F.I.R.
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen’s

No.IV/NFIR/7 CPC/Allowance/2016/Part I

Dated: 28/08/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Government’s decision on recommendation of the 7th Central Pay Commission -Transport Allowance to the Railway employees – Deprivel of higher rate to those working in pay Level 1 & 2-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-V/2017/A/TA/1 dated 17/08/2017 (RBE No.96/2017).

NFIR invites kind attention of the Railway Board to the modified instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 17/08/2017 on payment of Transport Allowance at revised rates, stating that the Railway employees who are drawing pay of Rs.24,200/- & above in Pay Level 1 & 2 of the 7th CPC Pay Matrix are entitled for Transport Allowance @ Rs.3600 plus DA thereon in cities mentioned in the Annexure to Board’s letter dated 03/08/2017 and @ Rs.1800 plus DA thereon at all other places.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that with the issuance of instructions dated 17/08/2017, an anomalous situation has arisen wherein the Railway employees in Pay Level 3, drawing pay Rs. 21,700/- and above upto Level 8 are entitled for Transport Allowance @ Rs. 3600 + DA thereon (in Al/A class cities and in other cities @ Rs. 1800 + DA thereon), while those in Pay Level 1 & 2 are made eligible for the Transport Allowance at the said rate (i.e. Rs. 3600/- + DA thereon) on reaching the Pay of Rs. 24,200/- and above.

Federation further desires to state that pursuant to the recommendations of 5th CPC and 6th CPC, the following instructions were issued:-

Recommendations of 5th CPC – Transport Allowance

RBE No. 179/1997 (rates w.e.f. 01/08/1997)

S.No Pay Scale of the Employees A 1/A Class City Other Places
1 Rs.8000-13500 or above 800 400
2 Rs.6500-10500 or above but below Rs.8000-13500 400 200
3 Below Rs.6500-10500 100 75

Above position reveals that all the employees working in pay scale below Rs. 6500-10500 i.e. upto Rs. 6000-9800 (S1 to S1OA) were allowed Transport Allowance at the uniform rate of Rs. 100/- p.m. in Al/A class cities irrespective of their pay.

Recommendations of 6th CPC -Transport Allowance

RBE No.111/2008 (rates w.e.f 01/09/2008) & RBE No.95/2015

Employees drawing Grade Pay of
Rate of Transport Allowance For A 1/A Class cities
GP 5400 & above 3200 + DA
GP 4200-4800,GP below 4200 and pay in pay band = Rs.7440 1600 + DA
GP below 4200 and Pay below Rs.7400 600 + DA

From the above, it could be seen that the employees were allowed higher rate of Transport Allowance on reaching the pay @ Rs.7440/- irrespective of their Grade Pay (PB-) viz., GP 1800,1900,2000,2400,2800.

The above position shows that the Board’s instructions dated 03-08-2017 and 17-08-2017 have deprived the Transport Allowance at Rs.3600/- + Da thereon to the staff working in pay Level 1 & 2 of 7th CPC Pay Matrix due to the restriction that such higher rate of Transport Allowance is allowed on reaching the pay of Rs.24,200, inspite of the fact that they were already drawing higher rate when their pay was Rs.7,440/- in 6th CPC Grade Pay 1800,1900,2000,2400 and 2800.

Federation contends that the ends of justice would be met if the Railway employees working in Pay Level 1 & 2 are also allowed payment of Transport Allowance at higher rate i.e.Rs.3600/- + DA thereon when their pay is Rs.21,700/- instead Rs.24,200/-.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to make out a case and refer the matter to the Ministry of Finance for removal of aberration for ensuring justice to lower level staff (i.e.Pay level 1 and 2 also). A Copy of the reference made to the Ministry of Finance, may be provided to the Federation for follow up action.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)

Brother,

Sub: Important subjects discussed with Railway Board (AM/Staff) this date (20th June 2017)-reg.

MACPS ‘Very Good’ Benchmarking should be scrapped:

After discussion, it was agreed to send a cogent communication about the Railway employees’ working system for exempting Railways from the revised ‘Very Good’ benchmarking. In this context, NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/DoP&T dated 23/08/2016 addressed to Cabinet Secretary and letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 09/01/2017 addressed to Railway Board may be connected.

7th CPC Pay Matrices and Option for Pay Fixation for those who were granted increment on 1st July or those promoted in between 01/01/2016 and the date of notification:

The Railway Board have clarified that instructions already exist for granting option. NFIR, however, pointed out that on several Zones, the Option opportunity has been denied as the Zonal Railways as well as Divisions have not understood the provisions contained in Board’s instructions and demanded that illustrations be issued by the Railway Board through clarificatory instructions.

After discussion it was agreed to.

Yours fraternally

Sub: Option for pay fixation in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix level to the Railway employees promoted during the period 01.01.2016 to 31.12.2016.

Please refer to your letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC(Imp)/2016/R.B./Part I dated 06.01.2017, wherein it has been demanded that opportunity for revision of option for those staff promoted after the date of notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 (i.e 28.07.2016) and also for those staff promoted between 01.01.2016 and 31.12.2016 to switch over o 7th CPC Pay Matrix from the date subsequent to date of Railway Board’s notification be provided.

2. In this context it is stated that option for switching over to 7th CPC has been circulated and clearly specified under Rule 5 of RS(RP) Rules, 2016. Further, instructions for exercising the ,revised option in respect of officials who had Promotion/financial upgradation and had already exercised the option between the date of,effeet of recommendation (01.01.2016) and date of promulgation of RS(RP) Rules, 2Q3.6 ( 2016) has also been issued vide Board’s letter RBE No 124/2016 dated 20.10.20,16.1t, has already been notified under Rule 5 of RS(RP) Rules and further in the option form ctrculated along with RS(RP) Rules that the employee can elect to continue on ay Aa d and Grade Pay of his substantive/officiating post until the date of his next increment  at any subsequent increment raising he pay to particular limit or from the date of his promotion/upgradation.

3.Form the above, it can be appreciated that employee can continue such time, till

However, the option exercised is final and one time dispensation has been extended to those promoted between 01.01.2016 and 28.07.2016 can not be extended in other cases. Decision on permitting further revision of option once taken can not belaken unilaterally by Ministry of Railways alone and needs to be taken by Ministry of Finance as it is a general policy matter pertaining to all Government employees.

The General Manager/CAOs(R),
All India Railways & Production Units, (As per mailing list)

Sub: – Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised pay structure – clarifications – regarding.

Following the notification of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, Railway Board has received references seeking clarifications regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. These matters have been considered by Ministry of Finance and the points of doubts are clarified as under:-

Sl. 
No.
Point of doubt Clarification
1. As per the provisions of FR 22 (I)(a)(1), the Government Servants (other than those appointed on deputation to ex- cadre post or ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion/appointment or from the date of next increment.Some    of  the  employees,  promoted between  01.01.2016   and the date of notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation  on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 i.e. 28th July, 2016, the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous.

Whether such employee may be allowed to revise their option under FR 22 (l)(a)(1) at this stage.

Under the changed circumstances after notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016, the employee   may   be  allowed to exercise   revised     option   for fixation   of     pay  under    FR 22(I)(a)(1). Such   revised  option shall    be  exercised  within   one month   of  issue    of   this  letter. Option so revised shall be final.
Whether employees appointed/ promoted/granted financial upgradation during 02.01.2015 and 01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment 01.01.2016 Since, the provisions of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 are effective from 01.01.2016, no increment Shall be allowed on 01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.

No. 11/13 (B)

Dated: 10/04/2017

The Director General (Personnel),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Extension of age limit of retired Railway Doctors as Contact Medical Practitioners upto the age of 70 years-reg.

Ref:(i) NFIR’ s letter No. 11/13 (B) dated 14/02/2017.
(ii) CMD, C. Rly’s letter No. 0561/Dr. Bansode/Retd.RMS dated 17/02/2017.

 

Federation vide its letters of even number dated 10/05/2016, 23/05/2016, 22/08/2016 & 25/11/2016 has been requesting the Railway Board to extend the age limit of retired Railway Doctors upto the age of 70 years facilitating their appointment as Contract Medical Practitioners.

In this connection, NFIR invites the kind attention of the Board (DG/P and DG/RHS) to CMD, Central Railway’s letter dated 17/02/2017 (copy enclosed) wherein request has been made to allow re-appointment of Dr. Bansode an eminent Cardiologist who is well versed with ECHO studies and is dedicated, highly skilled, sincere and has special rapport with the Railway patients as Contract Medical Practitioner, as a special case. Federation is of the view that the proposal of CMD, Central Railway deserves to be considered, duly modifying the extant policy suitably so that the retired Railway Doctors can be appointed upto the age of 70 years.

NFIR therefore, requests the Railway Board (DG/P & DG/RHS) to kindly see that the approval is accorded revising the age limit to 70 years for the purpose of engaging retired Railway Doctors as Contract Medical Practitioner.

Yours faithfully,
S/d,

No:0561/Dr.Bansode/Retd.IRMS.

Director General (RHS)
Ministry Of Railways,
Railway Board,
New Delhi – 110 001.

Sub: Extension of age limit of Retired Railway Doctor as Contract Medical Practitioner for present age of 65 to 70 yrs.

Ref: This office letter of even no.dated :20/05/2016 & 21/12/2016
(copy enclosed)

 

In connection with the above subject, please refer to this office letters of even no.dated:20/05/2016 & 21/12/2016, where in you are requested to make the necessary changes in the policy guidelines to accommodate few deserving Retired doctors to work beyond age 65 years.

It seems, it is difficult to extend the working of Retired doctors for 65 yrs to 70 yrs as policy.

Of late, we are getting representations from anions and railways, retired and serving (copy enclosed) to extend the working of Retired Railway doctors for 65 yrs to 70 yrs.

As a matter of fact, Dr.B.R.Bansode (Physician), retired Railway doctor needs a special mention. He has been working Central Hospital, Byculla, Mumbai for more than 35 yrs. He is dedicated, highly skilled, sincere and has special rapport with Railway patients.

At present, Central Hospital, Byculla is having only 2 IRMS (Physician) and other divisions of Central Railway are having only one Physician, except Pune division, wnere there is no Physician at all.

Dr.B.R.Bansode is well trained in Cardiology and does ECHO studies in Dr.BAMH, Byculla. The other available Physicians in Central Railway are not having that much experience as of Dr.B.R.Bansode to give full justice to ECHO Cardiolography studies.

In view of this it is requested that deserving doctor like Dr.B.R.Bansode may be reappointed as Contract Medical Practitioner as a special case at least for 2 years, if not upto 70 years.

Enclosures: As stated.

S/d,
(Dr. Shyam Sunder)
Chief Medical Director
