Incidents of violent attacks on Railway employees in the course of performing their duties

Incidents of violent attacks on Railway employees in the course of performing their duties

NFIR

No. II/34/2018-Part I

Dated: 19/09/2018

The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Incidents of violent attacks on Railway employees in the course of performing their duties-reg.

Of late, it is noticed that the Railway employees are becoming targets of physical attacks by the unruly people/antisocial elements. In this connection, NFIR cites the case of recent physical attack on Travelling Ticket Examiner of S.C. Railway (Secunderabad Division) by a group of people who are habituated of travelling unauthorizedly and threatening on duty staff. It has further been reported that three persons have attacked the Gate Keeper (Track Maintainer) at Level Crossing Gate on Northern Railway and chopped off his left arm on 17th September, 2018. Similar attacks on staff were also reported from different places and no adequate action has been taken by the concerned Law & Order Authorities to deter the miscreants.

The Railway Staff who perform duties in the field and at remote places are developing constant fear of criminal attacks on them by the miscreants. In order to maintain the morale of staff, it would be necessary to urge upon the concerned high level authorities who are accountable for maintaining Law & Order situation to take effective measures. So far as Level Crossing Gates are concerned, provision of CCTV cameras may be considered seriously to facilitate detecting the culprits for further action.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly see that concrete steps are taken to protect the Railway Staff working in the field and in the remote sections of the Railway system. Federation may please be kept advised of action being taken by the Railway Board early.

Yours faithfully
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

Clarifications regarding payment of Breakdown Allowance

Regarding payment of Breakdown Allowance

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

 RBE No. 138/2018

No.E(P&A)II-2017/BDA-1 

New Delhi, dated 14.09.2018.

The General Mangers/OSDs/CAOs,
All Indian Railways & Production Units.
(As per mailing list).

Sub: Clarifications regarding payment of Breakdown Allowance.

Ref:- Board’s letter of even number dated 30.08.2017 (RBE No.106/2017)

In context of Board’s letter cited above, references have been received in Board’s office from some Zonal Railways, seeking clarifications regarding entitlement of Breakdown allowance to Technician Gr.11l drawing pay in higher level i.e. Pay level 3 under MACPS rather than the pay level available for the post. The issue has also been raised by AIRF in PNM Forum as item No.15/2018 and NFIR in their letter dated 11.04.2018.

2. The matter has been examined in Board’s office and it has been observed that the MACP Scheme provides for grant of financial upgradation to the employees on personal basis and there occurs no change in the designation, classification or status. The concerned employees continue to discharge the duties and responsibilities of the post held by them. In view of this, it is clarified that the Breakdown Allowance has to be paid at the rate(s) as prescribed against the respective post mentioned in para-1 of Board’s letter cit. 30.08.2017. Accordingly, Technician Gr.III though drawing pay in higher pay level under MACPS, are entitled for Breakdown Allowance at the rates prescribed for the post held by them.

3. The other terms and conditions relating to Breakdown Allowance will remain the same.

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

5. Please acknowledge receipt.

Revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways w.e.f. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016

No.II/23/Part III

Dated: 11/09/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board.
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways w.e.f. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. F(X)I-2002/11/2 dated 26/2/2017.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. II/23/Part III dated 12/03/2018.
(iii) Railway Board’s reply vide No. F(X)I-2002/11/2 dated 09/05/2018 addressed to GS/NFIR.
(iv) NFIR’s PNM Agenda Item No.18 sent to Railway Board on 26/06/2018.

Federation desires to invite kind attention of Railway Board to the letter dated 26/12/2017 wherein instructions have been issued for revision of flat rate of license fee (Standard Rent) for residential accommodation in Railways with retrospective effect i.e. 01/07/2010, 01/07/2013, and 01/07/2016. Federation expresses its anguish over non-appreciation of ground reality highlighted by the Federation vide its letter dated 12/03/2018 for taking remedial action and instead, sent reply vide letter dated 09/05/2018 that the revision in the flat rate of license fee is based on the pattern of Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs. Due to this negative approach, the Federation was compelled to raise the issue vide PNM Agenda Item No. 18 (sent to Railway Board on 26/06/2018), but unfortunately, instructions have not been modified yet.

Besides above, the Federation desires to convey to the Railway Board that the reports are received from the NFIR affiliated Unions that though outstanding dues towards office rent, electricity, telephone and water charges have already been cleared by the affiliates, the Divisional Administrations have raised bills for payment arrears towards rentals of office accommodation from 01/07/2010 to 30/06/2013, 01/07/2013 to 30/06/2016 and 01/07/2016 to 31/03/2018. While the Board’s instructions dated 26/12/2017 are unjustified, the action of Railway Administration, demanding payment of arrears on account of Office rent of the accommodations in possession of the affiliated Unions is totally wrong.

As the subject has already been taken up by the Federation in the PNM fora at Board’s level, it is urged that the instructions dated26/12/2017 be kept in abeyance or withdrawn.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

Scheme of optional All India Leave Travel Concession (AILTC) facility, once in a block of four years (i.e. 2018-2021 onwards) on surrender of Privilege Passes (PP)

Scheme of optional ‘All India Leave Travel Concession’ (AILTC) facility, once in a block of four years (i.e. 2018-2021 onwards) on surrender of Privilege Passes (PP).

RBE No. 130/2018

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(RAILWAY BOARD)

No.E(W)2017/PS5-1/3

New Delhi, dated 10.09.2018

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

Sub: Scheme of optional ‘All India Leave Travel Concession’ (AILTC) facility, once in a block of four years (i.e. 2018-2021 onwards) on surrender of Privilege Passes (PP).

Ref: Department of Personnel & Training (DoP&T)’s OM No.31011/15/2017- Estt.A-IV dated 27.03.2018.

Pursuant to recommendations of Seventh CPC, DoP&T have communicated Government’s decision, vide their OM referred above, to allow the Railway employees to avail AILTC facility in accordance with the ‘Central Civil Services (Leave Travel Concession) Rules, 1988′ i.e. CCS (LTC) Rules.

2. Accordingly, in exercise of powers conferred vide Rule 1(3)(iii) of Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986 (Second Edition-1993), the Competent Authority in the Ministry of Railways has accorded approval to exclude such railway servants and other eligible persons (i.e. eligible for PP) from the facility of Privilege Passes in that particular calendar year in which they opt for AILTC facility. Applicants may avail AILTC facility subject to conditions stipulated in para 2 of the referred OM dated 27.03.2018 (copy enclosed as Annexure-I). This facility is further subject to procedural guidelines/conditions stipulated hereunder.

3. These orders shall be applicable to (i) Railway Servants entitled to PPs; (ii) Other government department’s officials serving in railways on deputation and entitled to PPs; (iii) Other officials serving in railways and entitled to PPs; and (iv) Officials of Audit Department (Railway) entitled to PPs. The Competent Authorities concerned shall modify terms and condition of such officials as required and necessary. These orders would not be applicable to those who are undergoing minor penalty of stoppage of even a single PP at the time of application for availing AILTC.

4. Those officials, who opt for AILTC facility, would be issued a “Privilege Pass Surrender Certificate” (PPSC) i.e. a pre-requisite for availing AILTC facility. The “Pass Issuing Authority” (PIA) shall issue the PPSC as per format at Annexure-II, duly following the procedure stipulated as under:-

(i) Applicant employee will submit an application (format at Annexure-III) to the concerned PIA for issue of a PPSC.

(ii) Thereafter, the PIA will first check the “Privilege Pass Account” (PPA) of the ‘ applicant to verify whether the applicant has already availed any PP or not in that particular calendar year.

(iii) If applicant has already availed a PP in that particular calendar year, then the application for issue of PPSC would be rejected and the applicant should be intimated accordingly, as per format at Annexure-IV.

(iv) If applicant has not availed any PP in that particular calendar year, the PIA concerned will disallow operation of PPA by blocking it with an entry (PPSC issued on date …./…/…… /) in PPA so that the applicant is barred from drawing any PP, even inadvertently, during that particular calendar year in which AILTC facility has been opted.

(v) If both husband and wife are entitled to PPs, both have to surrender their respective entitled PPs that are admissible to them in the calendar year in which either of them opt for AILTC facility. In this scenario, PIA will issue a single composite PPSC duly completing Part-II of the PPSC. The following procedure will be followed, additionally, in such cases:-

(a) If PPAs of both the spouses are maintained by same PIA at the time of applying for AILTC facility, then the composite PPSC will be issued by the PIA after receipt of a joint application from both of them.

(b) If PIAs of both the spouses are different (due to any reason or on account of their working in separate Railways/Divisions/Units, etc.), the PPSC shall be issued by the PIA concerned of the applicant only after receipt of a “Confirmation Note in lieu of PPSC”(CN) to be issued (by other PIA as per format in Annexure-V) in favour of spouse of the main applicant. The spouse will apply for CN as per format at Annexure-VI.

(vi) In case of a deputationist (i.e. Railway servant serving on deputation etc in any other organization) and eligible for PPs as per statutory rules, the PIA concerned will issue PPSC as per aforementioned procedure.

(vii) The PIA will issue PPSC/CN or intimate about rejection/non-acceptance of the request, as the case may be, within ten working days of receipt of application.

(viii) After issue of PPSC/CN, request for its cancellation and re-opening of PPA will not be entertained on any ground, even if AILTC facility could not be availed due to whatsoever reason i.e. whether administrative or personal reasons.

(ix) The role of PIAs will cease once “PPSC” is issued to the applicant. Matters such as advance/reimbursement/travel entitlements during availing of AILTC shall be dealt by other respective Sections of Personnel/Accounts Department handling Travelling Allowance claims, taking into account PPSC as a basic document alongwith other documents stipulated in the CCS (LTC) Rules.

(x) A duplicate PPSC/CN can only be issued under special circumstances by the PIA concerned after taking approval of the Principal CPO.

5. The Railways should administer the AILTC facility strictly in accordance with the CCS (LTC) Rules-1988, as modified from time to time, without any deviation. It may be noted that ‘Home Town LTC/Home Town converted LTC” shall not be admissible to railway servants and the definitions of beneficiaries for LTC (e.g. members of family, dependents), dependency criteria, etc are different from that of Railway Servants (Pass) Rules, 1986. A copy of DoP&T’s letter No.31011/7/2013-Estt.(A)-IV dated 26.09.2014, containing clarifications and illustrations on administering LTC entitlements of “Fresh Recruits” is enclosed as Annexure-VII. Accordingly, the AILTC facility shall be regulated fully by the conditions and definitions as laid down in the CCS (LTC) Rules.

6. Regarding travel entitlements for availing of AILTC facility, copies of following OMs, as applicable on date, are enclosed:-

Issued by Details Annexure No.
Ministry Of Finance OM No.19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 Annexure – VIII
DoP&T OM No.31011/8/2017-Estt.A-IV dt.19.09.2017 Annexure-IX
DoP&T OM No.31011/8/2017-Estt.A-IV dt.18.01.2018 Annexure-X

It may be noted that DoP&T have stipulated vide their OM dated 19.09.2017 that (i) the travel entitlements for the purpose of LTC shall be the same as TA entitlements as notified vide MoF’s OM dated 13.07.2017, excepting the air travel entitlement for the employees in Level 6 to 8 of the Pay Matrix (para 3) and (ii) the other conditions that would govern the LTC facility (para 4). Hence, the same entitlement prevailing in civil side (i.e. not as per railway entitlement) will be applicable for availing  AILTC facility.

7. To summarize, the position, as contained in above OMs, with certain modifications, is briefly brought out in the table below:-

Pay Level in Pay Matrix Travel/LTC entitlement for AILTC
Level 1 to 5 Travel entitlement/Class of travel, etc in various modes of transports shall be as per Ministry of Finance’s OM No. 19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 subject to other conditions stipulated in DoP&T’s OM No. 31011/8/2017-Estt- A-IV dated 19.09.2017.
Level 6 to 8 Air travel entitlement stipulated in Ministry of Finance’s OM No. 19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 is not admissible for LTC. However, all other entitlements shall be as per aforementioned MoF’ OM dated 13.07.2017 and subject to other conditions stipulated in aforementioned DoP&T’s OM dated 19.09.2017.
Level 9 to 13 and NFSAG officers Travel entitlement/Class of travel, etc in various modes of transports shall be as per Ministry of Finance’s OM No. officers 19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 subject to other conditions stipulated in DoP&T’s OM No. 31011/8/2017-Estt- A-TV dated 19.09.2017.
Level 14 & above (excluding NFSAG Officers) Travel entitlement/Class of travel, etc in various modes of transports shall be as per Ministry of Finance’s OM No.19030/1/2017-E.IV dated 13.07.2017 subject to other conditions stipulated in DoP&T’s OM No. 31011/8/2017-Estt.A-IV dated 19.09.2017 and also as clarified vide DoP&T’s OM No.31011/8/2017-Estt.A-IV dated 18.01.2018.

8. The Zonal Railways and PUs are advised to get themselves familiarized with the extant CCS (LTC) Rules as well as clarifications available in the official website of DoP&T (i.e. presently (i) https://dopt.gov.in/ccs-ltc-rules and (i) https://dopt.gov.in/ notifications/oms-and-orders/ © Establishment o LTC Rules). It may also be noted that OMs/Notifications related to CCS (LTC) Rules issued and uploaded from time to time by DoP&T in their official website will come into force with immediate effect for regulation of AILTC facility as being extended by this order. Hence, these orders/instructions will not be circulated separately by the Ministry of Railways. Accordingly, the Railways and PUs should regularly visit the official website of DoP&T and download the latest instructions from time to time for settling claims of LTC etc and for compliance.

9. However, if any clarification in respect of TA Rules notified by Ministry of Finance is required, the same may be addressed to the Nodal Dte. in Board’s office viz. Finance Establishment Dte. for further examination and issue of appropriate clarification/reply.

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