7th pay commission recommendations For Station Masters in Indian Railways

7th pay commission recommendations For Station Masters in Indian Railways

Station Masters
The cadre of Station Masters, nearly 39,000 strong, is one of the visible faces of Indian Railways. They are connected with working of traffic, commercial duties like issue of tickets, goods handling, parcel handling, accounting of station earnings. They are also responsible for proper co-ordination between personnel of different departments posted at the station. Theirs is presently a three-tier structure:-
7th-pay-commission-recommendations-Station-Masters-Indian-Railways
Some major stations have posts of Station Superintendent (Gazetted).
Presently the mode of recruitment is as follows:
SS–100 percent promotional
SM–10 percent through Limited Departmental Competitive
Examination (LDCE), from serving non-ministerial graduates of Commercial and Traffic Departments; 15 percent+Shortfall against LDCE through Direct Recruitment from the open market; 75 percent through promotions from ASM.
ASM–25 percent through General Selection from specified serving matriculates in GP 1800, 1900, 2400 and 2800; 15 percent + Shortfall against General Selection through LDCE (from employees of specified categories of Commercial and Traffic Departments with qualification of graduation and a minimum service of 5 years for Group D staff); 60 percent+Shortfall against LDCE through Direct Recruitment from the open market.
There is a demand to upgrade ASMs from GP 2800 to GP 4200.
Analysis and Recommendations:-
The Commission notes that 7 percent of the entire cadre is presently in GP 2800, 53 percent in GP 4200 and 40 percent in GP 4600. Keeping in mind the identical educational qualifications required for the posts of ASM and SM, with practically no difference in the functions performed by them, and the historical importance of the post, it is recommended that the ASMs in GP 2800 should first be upgraded to GP 4200 and then fitted in the revised Pay Matrix. The cadre will then have 60 percent posts in Level 6 and 40 percent in Level 7. The designation of ASM may be abolished. Separate recommendations have been made regarding Dress Allowance to Station Masters. Other demands like grant of Safety and Punctuality Allowance, Outturn Allowance are not justified.

The three individuals / teams that secure first three positions shall be said to have achieved excellence, if more than three individuals / teams have participated in the sporting events of national / international importance, for the purpose of grant of incentive increments. This benefit, however, is allowable to the individual/team, who achieves the first position only, if the number of individuals/teams that participate in the sporting event, is three or two.

This benefit, however, is allowable to only the individual/ members of the team securing first position, if the number of individuals / teams that participate in a sporting event is three or two.
(iii) In the case of non-athletic/equivalent sporting events which involve level-related concept and the Game's format provide for awarding 1 Gold + 1 Silver + 2 Bronze Medals and there is no "play off' match for the Bronze Medal which is awarded to both the loosing semi-finalists
The individuals/ members of the teams, achieving first and second positions (i.e. Gold and Silver Medals) respectively, in the finals and both the losing semi-finalist individuals/ members of the teams who have been awarded Bronze Medals (i.e. the third position is a tie between the two semi-finalists), shall be said to have achieved excellence for the purpose of grant of incentive increments, if more than four individuals/ teams have participated in the sporting events of national/ international importance. This benefit, however, is allowable to only the individual/ team securing first position, if the number of individuals/ teams that participate in a sporting event is four or three or two.

3. These orders shall be in supersession of the OM No. 6/2/2009 - Pay-1 dated 18th May, 2010. The provisions as contained in the OM No.6/1/85-Estt(Pay-1) dated 16th July, 1985 and subsequent orders

7th CPC recommendations will have no impact on the fiscal deficit in the current fiscal year

7th CPC recommendations will have no impact on the fiscal deficit in the current fiscal year

The implementation of the 7th Pay Commission’s recommendations will have no impact on the fiscal deficit in the current fiscal, as budgetary provisions are enough to meet the estimated outgo of Rs 60,400 crore in FY17, a senior official said.

With the government broadly accepting the pay- and pension-related recommendations of the Pay panel, over one crore central government staffers and pensioners will get an additional Rs 84,933 crore as recompense in FY17.

A finance ministry official on condition of anonymity said that while Budget FY17 did not provide any explicit provision for the Pay panel, some Rs 53,500 crore was built into the allocations to various ministries and Rs 20,500 crore in the rail budget.

“Most of the outgo related to general budget has been provided for in the Budget. Only a small amount (Rs 6,900 crore) will be required, which would be met from savings during the year from budget allocations (for various departments),” the official said. He, however, did not specify if these savings meant cuts in capital spending.

Every year, the government makes some savings due to the inability of many departments to spend their allocated budget. These savings are often reallocated to needy departments. The total spending budget for FY17 is Rs 19.78 lakh crore.

The Centre has set a target to bring down fiscal deficit to 3.5% of GDP in FY17, from 3.9% in FY16. Sources indicated that the tax revenue increase due to Pay panel award had been factored in when the Budget was made.

Separately, the railways will have to find another Rs 4,000 crore to meet the gap in budget provision for pay and salary revisions in FY17. It has provided for Rs 20,500 crore in this year’s rail budget for salary hike.
The total impact on account of revision in pay, allowances and pension would have been more, had the Centre accepted the recommendations related to allowances along with pay and pension in one go.

The Pay Commission’s recommendation for a 63% rise in allowances (which would have inflated the Centre’s and railways’ outgo by Rs 29,300 crore) has been put on hold until a finance secretary-led committee reviews this along with the commission’s suggestions for an overhaul of the 196-odd such benefits.

The committee will submit its report in four months (by October). Officials don’t anticipate any significant additional outgo on account of allowances this year as the revised benefits are likely to be paid prospectively from next year.

Of the Rs 84,933-crore hit on the exchequer this year, a recurring expenditure of Rs 72,800 crore is due to pay and pension while Rs 12,133 crore is earmarked to pay arrears from last financial year (the panel’s award will take effect from January 2016).

On June 29, the Cabinet accepted the Pay Commission’s recommendations on pay and pension.

The minimum pay for the lowest level staff will now be Rs 18,000 per month (Rs 7,000 earlier); while the real increase pay/pension is 14.3%.
