Revision of format for OBC Caste Certificate
 
No.36036/2/2013- Estt.(Res.)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances & Pensions
Department of Personnel & Training
North Block, New Delhi
Dated: 30th May. 2014
To,
The Chief Secretaries of all the State Governments/Union Territories
 
Subject: Revision of format for OBC Caste Certificate
 
Madam/Sir,
The Government of India had issued instructions on 8th September, 1993 vide DoPT OM. No. 36012/22/93-Estt.(SCT) providing for reservation to Other Backward Classes in the services and posts under the Government of India. The format of the Caste Certificate was prescribed vide Annexure A of the O.M. No. 36012/22/93-Estt.(SCT) dated 15th November 1993. In the said format, the then Ministry of Welfare’s Resolution No. 12011/68/93-BCC(C) dated 10th September 1993 was mentioned, which contained the list of castes and communities treated as OBC’s till that time. Since then, a large number of castes and communities have been added to the Central List of OBCs through various resolutions of the Ministry of Social Jusiice and Empowerment. The details of the resolutions subsequent to the Resolution dated 10th September 1993 do not find mention in the existing format. The said format also prescribes that the certificate issuing authority should certify that the candidate does not belong to the persons/sections (Creamy Layer) mentioned in Column 3 of the Schedule to the aforesaid OM. dated 8.9.1993.

2. Representations have been received in this Department wherein candidates belonging to OBC Communities have reportedly faced difficulty in getting the benefits of reservation. This is because of the fact that in the caste certificate issued by the concerned district authorities, although the name of the caste/community is mentioned in the certificate, the specific resolution by which the said caste/community has been included in the Central List of  OBCs is not indicated.
 
3. Keeping in view such problems faced by the candidates, this issue was examined in consultation with the National Commission for Backward Classes and it has been decided to revise the existing format of OBC Caste Certificate. A copy of the revised format is enclosed(Anuexure). All the certificate issuing authorities are requested to invariably mention the details of the Resolution (Number and Date) by which the castec/community of the candidate has been included in the Central List of OBCs and also to ensure that he/she does not belong to the persons/sections (Creamy Layer) mentioned in Column 3 of the Schedule to the aforesaid O.M. dated 8.9.1993 as amended from time to time.
 
4. I am to request that the revised format of the Certificate may please be brought to the notice of authorities under the State Governments/Union Territories who are empowered to issue the Caste Certificate.
 
Yours faithfully,

No.IV/NFIR/7th CPC/2013/Pt.Ii

The Chairman,
Seventh Central Pay Commission,
New Delhi
Respected Sir,
Sub: Preliminary inter-action meeting between 7th CPC & NFIR — reg.
Ref: Seventh CPC’s D.O. No.7CPC/22/Meeting dated 12th May, 2014.
We express our sincere gratitude to the 7th CPC for extending invitation to the NFIR to take part in the inter-action meeting. As this being the first meeting of preliminary inter-action nature. NFIR submits certain facts briefly for appreciation. The Federation would, however submit detailed memorandum separately on various issues as well as the proposed pay structure for Railwaymen/ Women and the need for upward revision of various allowances, incentive etc.
NATIONAL FEDERATION OF INDIAN RAILWAYMEN (N.F.I.R.)
NFIR is one of the major Federations in the railways functioning for the cause of rail workforce (serving & retired) and equally for the growth of Nation as well Railways since the last over six decades.
NFIR is one of the major constituents of the Joint Consultative Machinery (JCM). M. Raghavaiah, General Sccrctary/NFIR, is also the Leader of Staff Side/JCM.
INDIAN RAILWAYS
Indian Railways is a unique and complex transportation system under the control of Central Government, serving the needs of people since the last more than 160 years. Indian Railways handle over 19,000 regular trains (Freight & Passenger) per day besides about 3000 special trains a day during various seasons. Its route kilometerage is 65,187.
During the year 2012-13, Indian Railways moved more than 1010 Metric Tonnes of freight traffic and joined as fourth member of the select Billion Tonne Club of USA, China and Russia. The operating ratio has been around 90% barring the 3 years period between 2005-06 & 2008. The Indian Railways incur losses as a result of fulfilling the social service obligations. The approximate loss on this account is around Rupees Twenty Thousand Crores per annum.
RAILWAY EMPLOYEES’ ROLE:
The railway employees perform duties for ensuring uninterrupted flow of services. They Work at over 7000 railway stations. Most work places do not have access to facilities and basic amenities for their living. The employees are compelled to work under the open sky and inclement weather conditions. They face hazards associated with the job environment, remoteness. inhospitable terrain etc.,
Although, railway employees are part of Central Government Employees, their nature of work, duties and responsibilities are uncommon and not comparable with any other system/industry. The staff who maintain railway tracks, rolling stock, signal/telecom network, train operations, trains planning, punctuality, safety are skillful and devoted to the system but however, these factors have not been given due weighage by successive Pay Commissions. The running staff i.e. Loco Pilots, Asst. Loco Pilots, Guards. operating staff, station masters, controllers etc.. perform their jobs facing many odds. They are expected lo perform duties even beyond the prescribed duty hours.
We may incidentally cite para 2.3 of the report of the Chairman, High Level Safety Review Committee headed by Dr.Anil Kakodkar submitted to the Railway Ministry. According tlo the said report the number of railway employees killed in the course of performing duties has been higher as can be seen from the following figures (period 2007—08 to 2011)

Killed Injured
(a) Railwaymen 1,600 8,700
(b) Passenger/Public 1,019 2,110
(c) Unmanned Level Crossing 723 690
The nature of work, duties, responsibilities of railway staff justify grant of better pay structtire and other benefits treating the Railway Workforce as unique and not comparable with other Central Government employees. We shall explain the facts through our memorandum for consideration of Hon’ble 7th CPC.
NFIR‘s MEMORANDAM AND EVIDENCE:
As the NFIR is one of the major constituents of the JCM, our memorandum will be drafted and finalized after the submission of memorandum by JCM (Staff Side). In view of this, we request that we may be given time to submit our memorandum by 31st July, 20l4.
As the Hon’ble Pay Commission is aware that 1.3 million staff belonging to hundreds of caegories are working in the railways, we request that the Federation be given more slots in phases to facilitate us to explain the case of every important category cogently.
SATISFACTION LEVEL OF 6th CPC REPORT:
We may submit that the 6th  report, more particularly the concept of Grade Pay and Pay Band had generated many anomalies. This led to dis-satisfaction among different categories of railway employees. These anomalies are yet to be rectified by the Government. The proposals of Railway Ministry on 6th CPC issues are pending with Finance Ministry. MACPS aberrations have also been very large in number. Our efforts at the level of Railway Ministry as well Ministry of Personnel/MoF have not yielded positive result.
We hope that the Seventh Central Pay Commission would look into these issues in a realistic manner for mitigating the injustice caused to staff.
DEARNESS ALLOWANCE — IT’s MERGER WITH PAY:
Honhle Pay Commission may kindly appreciate that the Dearness Allowance (D.A.) has become 100% of pay w.e.f. 01/01/2014. This scenario was never anticipated by the 6th CPC. It may however be appreciated that in the past, the Government had merged DA with pay when it crossed 50% (In the year 2004). We are expecting 6% DA w.e.f. July 1, 2014, thus the DA% would be 106% of pay in July, 2014.
We therefore, request the Hon’ble Pay Commission to kindly consider this aspect for sending interim report to the Government recommending merger.
CONCLUDING:
NFIR assures its co-operation to the Pay Commission by way providing facts and material & equally hopes that this Pay Commission would render justice to the Railway employees.
Yours faithfully,

Dear Sir,
 
Sub: Merger of Dearness Allowance with Pay-reg.
 
While enclosing copy of Federation’s letter No. 1/5(A) dated 27/09/2013, NFIR desires to bring to your kind notice, the following facts for consideration.
 
2. In the Standing Committee meeting held under the chairmanship of the Secretary DoP&T, on 7th May 2014, the agenda item pertaining to merger of D.A. with pay was discussed by the JCM/Staff Side representatives. There has, however, been no positive response from the Official Side on the issue probably the VII CPC has started working on the terms of reference.
 
3. Now that the D.A. has become 100% of pay w.e.f. 01/01/2014 and another instalment of D.A. @ 6% of pay is likely to be granted by the Government w.e.f. 01/07/2014 as per the figures of Consumer Price Index, continuing D.A., without merger, is highly unjustified. In the past i.e. during the year 2004, the Government of India had merged 50% DA with pay for all purposes. Similar decision has, unfortunately, not been taken by the previous Government.
 
4. Seventh Central Pay Commission has already sent communications to JCM constituent organisations etc.. to submit Memorandums. At this juncture, it would be proper to convey to the Chairman, 7th CPC to consider the JCM (Staff Side) demand for merger of DA with pay with retrospective effect and send interim report to the Government for consideration.
 
NFIR, therefore, requests you to kindly consider our request and see that the Government makes reference to 7th CPC to consider DA merger with pay and to send its interim report to the Government for favourable consideration.
Thanking you.
Yours faithfully,
sd/-
