Denial of TA/DA to the Staff car Drivers in the Railways-reg

Denial of TA/DA to the Staff car Drivers in the Railways-reg

Affiliated to :

No. I/8/Part. I

Dated: 11/05/2015

Sub: Denial of TA/DA to the Staff car Drivers in the Railways-reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM ltem No.4/2011.
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. 1/8 dated 02/04/2010.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. I/8/pt. I dated 27/06/2013. 13/09/2013, 5/5/2014, 7/7/2014 & 21/10/2014.

(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. F(E)I/209/AL-28/04/2015.

In the Fast Track Committee Meeting held in the Railway Board on 08/05/2015, the above subject was discussed without finality. However, NFIR places below detailed justification warranting restoration of payment of TA/DA to the Staff Car Drivers:-

1. The Committee constituted by the Railway Board appears to have not recommended payment of Daily Allowance to the Staff Car Drivers for performing official journeys during the prescribed duty hours even if they move out beyond a distance of 8 kms. from the Head Quarters without consulting extant codal provision.

2. The Sub Rule (1) of Rule 1614 o.f lndian Railway Establishment Code (Second Reprint Edition) permits drawal of daily allowance by a Railway employee who is not receiving a permanent allowance on any day on which he proceeds on tour beyond a radius of 8 krns.

The position mentioned above shows that the decision taken by the Railway Board is contrary to the instructions/codal provisions, the same requires to be reviewed. It needs to te appreciated that the staff car drivers carry the officials to accident sites, flood affected areas, and different locations in view of administrative requirement. Their working is not comparable with other departments of central Government. Denial of TA/DA is therefore unjustified.

NFIR, therefore, urges the Railway Board to withdraw Board’s letter dated 12/03/2008 and issue instructions to the General Managers of Zones/PUs for restoration of payment of TA/DA to Staff Car Drivers undertaking journeys a beyond a distance of 8 kms. A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

Payment of difference in TA to the employees due to implementation of MACP Scheme

Payment of difference in TA to the employees due to implementation of MACP Scheme.

An important letter has been sent to Railway Board by the General Secretary of AIRF regarding the issue of arrears to be paid in difference of TA due to implementation of MACP to Railway employees.

Reproduction of the letter is given below for your information…

 

All India Railwaymen’s Federations

No.AIRF/159

Dated: January 28, 2013

The Secretary(E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Payment of difference in TA to the employees due to implementation of MACP Scheme

Consequent upon implementation of the orders, modifying ACP Scheme as MACP Scheme on the basis of recommendations of VI CPC, many employees were granted financial upgradation under MACP Scheme w.e.f 01.09.2008. T.A. amount was claimed by the employees as per their old grade pay prior to their financial upgradation, and they are due for the arrears of TA with retrospective effect due to implementation of MACP orders.

The matter was taken up by our affiliate, S.C. Railway Mazdoor Union, with South Central Railway Administration, requesting payment of supplementary claims relating to difference of TA on enhanced pay of the employees who have been granted benefit of financial upgradation under MACP Scheme with retrospective effect.

It is unfortunate, that the above request of our affiliate was not considered favourably by the Railway Administration, saying that the payment of different of TA consequent upon financial upgradation with retrospective effect is not in consonance with Board’s instructions/codal provisions.

There is a provision exists in the Note under para 1602(2) of the IREC, that, in the case of late authorization/ drawl of increments with retrospective effect, other than those where increments were withheld or where increments take an officer above the stage of efficiency bar, there is no objection to supplementary claims relating to Travelling Allowance, if any, being admitted, on the basis of enhanced pay, including increments.
In this connection, photocopy of letter No.P(R) 75/VII dated 25.01.2012 of the CPO/SCR is enclosed herewith.

In view of the above, the Board are requested to issue necessary orders to South Central Railway Administration for the payment of arrears of TA to the employees who were granted financial upgradation under MACP Scheme w.e.f. 01.09.2008.

Yours faithfully,
