New Delhi-110055

Sir,

Sub:-Pay fixation to Running Staff while granting financial upgradation in the identical Grade Pay (VI CPC) under MACPS – Reckoning Special Running Staff Allowance for pay fixation-reg.

The undersigned is directed to refer to NFIR s letter No. IV/MACPS/Part 10, dt. 16.05.2017 on the above subject and to state that tile instructions for fixation of pay at the time of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS are contained in Para-4 of the Annexure to Board’s letter dt. 10.06.09 (RBE NoA 01/2009) which stipulates as under:-

“Benefit of pay fixation available at the time Df regular promotion shall also be allowed at the time of financial upgraiation under the Scheme. Therefore, the pay shall be raised by 3% of the total pay in the Pay Band and the Grade Pay drawn before such upgradation. There shall, however, be no further fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion if it is in the same Grade pay as granted under MACPS”.

In view of the above, nodal Branches for 6th  & 7th CPC viz. PC-VI and PC-VII, have been consulted. They have advised that the Additional Allowance/Special Running Staff Allowance is not reckoned for fixation of pay on promotion. As such it is not feasible to reckon the same for pay fixation purpose while granting financial upgradation under MACP Scheme.

Yours faithfully,

S/d,
for Secretary/Railway Board

Group X Pay on 7th Pay Commission Report

7th Pay Commission Report on Group X Pay

 

7th CPC has recommended X-Pay of Rs. 6200 to existing defence personnel who are in receipt of X-Pay and possessing qualification equivalent to Diploma approved by AICTE

Group ‘X’ pay for JCOs/ORs and equivalent has been sought to be enhanced by four times from the existing rate of Rs.1,400 per month. In the context of change in nature of warfare the requirement of a higher technological threshold has been emphasized by the Services.

The Commission has taken due note of the emphasis being placed on skilled manpower with higher educational and technological thresholds.

While determining X pay for X group of JCOs/ORs the VI CPC considered the relativity of some of the grades of JCOs/ORs in Group X with diploma holders in engineering on the civil side. In case of civilians, posts requiring minimum qualification of diploma in engineering are placed in GP 4200 and in defence forces, some of the posts in X group whose minimum qualification held equivalent to diploma in engineering are placed in GP 2800.

The element of X group pay was therefore fixed at Rs.1,400. The Commission has examined the existing educational and training requirements of X pay personnel and has already noted the wide variation that exists in the three Services in this regard. It has therefore recommended that all X trades should mandatorily involve obtaining a qualification which is equivalent of a diploma in engineering (recognised by AICTE).

The approach adopted by the VI CPC in determining X pay is agreed with. At the same time the incentive structure needs to have a bearing with the qualifications.

Accordingly, this 7th Pay Commission has recommended the following

i.      X pay for JCOs/ORs in Group X at Rs.6,200 per month for all X trades which involve obtaining a qualification which is equivalent of a diploma recognised by AICTE. This amount is the difference in the minimum of the Pay level 6 (corresponding to Grade Pay of Rs.4200 in VI CPC), and Pay level 5 (corresponding to Grade Pay of Rs.2800 in VI CPC).

ii.      X pay for JCOs/ORs in Group X at Rs.3,600 per month (standard fitment of 2.57 on the existing X pay of Rs.1,400), for those currently in X pay, but not having a technical qualification recognised by AICTE.

PRE-2006 PENSIONERS – FIXATION CASE

PRE-2006 PENSIONERS – FIXATION CASE

1.      After reading our earlier website write up (Sl.2) on the above subject, some readers have sought the details of the case.

2.      The facts of the case briefly stated are as under:

a)    The VI CPC in para 5.1.47 of their report recommended that the fixation of revised pension as per the table given by them “will be subject to the provision that the revised pension, in no case, shall be lower than fifty percent of sum of the minimum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay thereon corresponding to the prerevised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired”.

b)    The Government of India in their Resolution No.38/37/08-P&PW(A) dated 29-8-2008 accepted the above proviso by reproducing it per verbatim at item 12 of the statement showing the relevant recommendations and decision of the Government thereon (vide Annexure to the said Resolution).

c)    In Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare O.M No.38/37/08 P&PW dated 1-9-2008 same proviso has been incorporated at para 4.2 thereof.

d)    The Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare through their clarificatory O.M. No.38/37/08 – P&PW (A) pt. 1 dated 3-10-2008 however modified the para 4.2 of their OM dated 1-9-2008 as under:

The pension calculated at 50% of the minimum of pay in the pay band plus grade pay would be calculated (i) at the minimum pay in the pay band (irrespective of the prerevised scale of pay from which the pensioner is retired) plus grade pay corresponding to the prerevised pay scale.”

e)    In other words in all cases it would be minimum pay of the pay band which would be taken and not the minimum pay in the pay band corresponding to the pre revised pay scale from which the pensioner had retired.

f)     This clarification was challenged by the Central Government SAG (S-29) Pensioners Association in Principal Bench of the Central Administrative Tribunal (vide O.A. No.655/2010). Hon’ble Tribunal in their order dated 1-11-2011 quashed the above clarificatory order of Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare dated 3-10-2008 and directed the respondents refix the pension of all pre 2006 retirees with effect from 1-1-2006 based on Government Resolution dates 29-8-2008.

g)   Government of India challenged the above decision of the said Tribunal before Delhi High Court vide WP (C) No.1535/2012 which was dismissed by the High Court vide their order dated 29-4-2013 upholding the decision of the Tribunal.

Government of India then filed the following S.L. Ps etc.
(i)    SLP (C) No.23055/2013 dismissed on 29-7-2013.
(ii)   Review Petition (C) No.2492/2013 dismissed on 12-11-2013.
(iii)  Curative Petition (C) No.126/2014 dismissed on 30-4-2014.
Thus the CAT verdict dated 1-11-2011 attained legal finality.

On 15-5-2014 the Hon’ble CAT Principal Bench New Delhi disposed of the contempt petition No.158/2012 directing the Union of India to implement the directions of the Tribunal expeditiously, preferably within three months”.

3.      The Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare in their letter No.38/77-A/09-P&PW(A) dated 29-5-2014 written to the Secretary of Petitioner Associaiton (Central Govt. SAG (S-29) Pensioners Association) has stated that as per the directions of Hon’ble CAT their order dated 1-11-2011 is required to be implemented “only in respect of Petitioners in O.A. No.655/2010 and not in respect of all pre 2006 retirees as per the Tribunals order dated 1-11-2011.

There is no such direction that it should be implemented only in respect of Petitioners. May be that Government Advocate had indicated that Government is willing to implement the judgment qua petitioners but the Tribunal had disposed of the contempt Petition by directing the Union of India to implement their directions dated 1-11-2011 expeditiously.

4.      It will not be out of place to mention here that in response to answer to Lok Sabha unstarred question No.3406 Govt. replied that  the above directions of the CAT Principal Bench had already been implemented in respect of all pre 2006 retirees but from an arbitrarily fixed date of 24-9-2012 (vide Department of Pension & Pensioners Welfare O.M. F.No.38/40/12 P&PW(A) dated 28-1-2013) This order was not restricted only to members of the Petitioners Association. Accordingly the direction to implement it wef 1-1-2006 issued by the CAT has to be implemented in respect of all pre 2006 retirees also.

Enhancement in the rates of various allowances by 25% consequent upon Dearness Allowance crossing 100%

Enhancement in the rates of various allowances by 25% consequent upon Dearness Allowance crossing 100%

All India Railwaymen’s Federation

No.AIRF/13

Dated: March 10, 2014

The Secretary(E),

Railway Board,
New Delhi

Sub: Enhancement in the rates of various allowances by 25% consequent upon Dearness Allowance crossing 100%

Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.F(E)I/2011/AL-28/18 dated 13.06.2011(RBE No.87) and E(P&A) I-2011/SP-1/Misc.1 dated 13.06.2011(RBE No.88/2011)

The VI CPC in their report had recommended that certain allowances, viz. Children Education Allowance, National Holiday Allowance, Daily Allowance, Washing Allowance, Breakdown Allowance, Special Compensatory Allowance, Cycle Maintenance Allowance, Fixed Conveyance Allowance, Road Mileage Allowance, Special Allowance to various categories of staff etc., should be increased by 25% whenever Dearness Allowance crosses 50%, and this recommendation was duly accepted by the Government of India.
Based on the above recommendation of the VI CPC, these allowances have since been enhanced by 25% w.e.f. 01.01.2011, i.e. from the date, Dearness Allowance having been crossed 50%.

Now, Dearness Allowance has crossed 100% w.e.f. 01.01.2014, there is, therefore, gross justification that the above allowances be further enhanced by additional 25%, as Dearness Allowance has again crossed the value of 50% after enhancement of these allowances w.e.f.01.01.2011.

The Board are, therefore, requested to issue necessary instruction to this effect an early date

Yours faithfully,
sd/-

Revision of Special Pay granted to Trolleyman working in Engineering and S&T Departments – reg.

Revision of Special Pay granted to  Trolleyman  working  in  Engineering and S&T  Departments – reg.

NO. IV/NFIR/VIth CPC/Main/10/Pt. IX

Dated: 27/08/2013

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
NEW DELHI

Dear Sir,

Sub:  Revision of Special Pay granted to  Trolleyman  working  in  Engineering and S&T  Departments – reg.

Ref:  (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 34/2012.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E (P&A) I-2012/FE-4/5 dated 10/07/2013.

——*——-

While going through the observations/recommendations of the Committee pursuant to the instructions of  DoP&T  (based on Vth  CPC), the Federation notes that absolutely harsh criteria has been proposed by the committee of Executive Directors, Railway Board in listing out categories for grant of Risk Allowance.

2.  In this connection, NFIR  wishes to bring to the notice of the Railway Board that the nominated Committee was required to bifurcate the categories of staff into two types of risks involved in the course of performing duties as defined by the Vth CPC. These are:

  • Continuous risks: Where the employee is prone to risk fully or partially in the course of performing Railway duties and
  • Contingent  risks:  In this category of risk the Railway employees have to face risk like one – time event and also when the event is uncertain.

3.  Federation further desires to highlight that the Committee has incorrectly denotified following  categories of  staff who face continuous risk  in the course of  performing railway duties by virtue of their job contents:-

  • Gate Keepers
  • Track Maintainers
  • Staff handling 440 Volts & above equipments,
  • Shuntman
  • Shunting Master
  • Shunting Jamadar
  • Shunting Porter
  • Trolley man
  • TRD Lineman
  • Welder

The contention of NFIR could be established  by the fact that every year in the Train accidents, derailments etc some of the staff of above categories get injured and more than often killed due to their nature ofjob involving continuous risk.

List of denotified categories of staff, therefore needs to revised to include at least above categories for payment of Risk Allowance.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to  review the decision and issue suitable instructions on the above lines to settle the demand raised in the PNM meeting. Copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed  to the Federation.

Yours faithfully
