Proposal for improved Voluntary Retirement Scheme

Proposal for improved Voluntary Retirement Scheme for Central Inland Water Transport Corporation Limited employees

Proposal for improved Voluntary Retirement Scheme for Central Inland Water Transport Corporation Limited employees

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today gave its approval for an improved Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS) for the employees of Central Inland Water Transport Corporation Limited (CIWTC) and disinvestment of CIWTC thereafter. The VRS currently in vogue in CIWTC is under the existing Central DA 1996/ Industrial DA 1997 is not attractive to employees and therefore does not evince much interest from the existing workforce of CIWTC.

The VRS benefit would be computed on 2006 pay scale for the employees covered under Central DA. For other category of employees, it would be based on 2007 Industrial DA linked pay scale. The improved VRS scheme would be opened for a period of three months from the date of its offer with a provision of extension by another one month. Necessary Grant-in-Aid from Government of India under Non-Plan would be given for this purpose.

Implementation of the improved VRS package would offer a better severance package to the employees of CIWTC. This would improve the prospects of finding an investor to either take over the assets or ensure viable commercial use of assets.

Representations have been received in this office to allow leave encashment to Railway employees who have failed to avail the benefit during the previous blocks despite availing Pass/PTO and leave during a block on the ground that the concept of block period was new for the Railway employees and it was introduced during the 2nd block period resulting in some of the employees failing to apply for the same due to various reasons.

3. The above relaxation is made as one time measure and the employees have to apply for the same along with the proof of grant of leave and pass during the block period within four months from the date of issue of this letter.

4. It is reiterated that it is a one-time relaxation and in future including the current block no claim from a retrospective date shall be entertained. All the claims for leave encashment should be done with prior approval of the competent authority as per the block system of Leave encashment.
5. This issues with the approval of Board (MS & FC).
