RBE No. 109/2016
No. E(P&A)II-2015/PLB-4
New Delhi, dated: 15.09.2016.
The General Managers/CAOs,
All Indian Railways & Production Units etc.

Sub : Payment of Productivity Linked Bonus to all eligible non-gazetted Railway employees for the financial year 2014-2015.

Productivity Linked Bonus (PLB) equivalent to 78 (Seventy Eight) days wages without any ceiling on wages for eligibility for the financial year 2014-15 to all eligible non-gazetted Railway employees (excluding all RPF/RPSF personnel) was sanctioned vide Board’s letter of even no. dt. 07.10.2015 with the condition that where wages exceed Rs. 3500/- per month. Productivity Linked Bonus will be calculated as if ‘wages’ are Rs. 3500/- p.m.

2. The President has now decided that the calculation ceiling of monthly emoluments for the purpose of payment of PLB shall be revised to Rs. 7000 w.e.f: 01.04.2014 i.e. for the accounting year 2014-15. Therefore, payment of PLB for the financial year 2014-15 to all eligible non-gazetted Railway employees (excluding all RPF/RPSF personnel) would be based on the wage calculation ceiling of Rs. 7000/- per month i.e. where wages exceed Rs. 7000/- per month, Productivity Linked Bonus will be calculated as if ’wages’ are Rs. 7000/- p.m.

3. Therefore, in the case of eligible railway employees mentioned in Board’s letter of even no. dt. 07. 10.2015 who were not placed under suspension, or had not quit service/retired/expired during the financial year 2014-15 or were on leave where leave salary admissible is not less than that admissible on leave on average pay. the amount due towards Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2014-15 becomes Rs. 17,951/- instead of Rs. 8,975/-.

4. Accordingly, the PLB amount to eligible non-gazetted Railway employees (excluding all RPF /RPSF personnel) for the financial year 2014-15 may be re-worked and the difference paid on priority in the same mode as payment of salary. All the other terms and conditions under which the payment was made shall remain unchanged.

5. This issues with the concurrence of Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

For kind consideration of the Committee of Secretaries - On Minimum Pay & Fitment Factor of 7th CPC

Subject: MINIMUM PAY & MULTIPLE FACTOR AFTER 7TH CPC
Reference: i) Para 10.1.67 of Report of 7th Pay Commission
ii) Para 3 & 4 of Resolution No. 1-2/2016-IC dated 25-7-2016 of Govt of India on 7th CPC Report
We have to make the following submissions for the kind consideration of the Committee for regarding Minimum Pay and Fitment / Multiplication Factor:

1. MODIFICATIONS ACCEPTED BY SUPREME COURT & PRESENT DAY REQUIREMENTS IGNORED BY 7TH CPC FOR DECIDING MINIMUM PAY BY Dr. W. AYKROYED FORMULA

a) The Minimum Pay Fixed at Rs.18000 by the 7th CPC is very much unjust and meager and ignores the accepted norms in this regard.

b) The Minimum wage of Rs.18000 proposed by 7th Pay Commission is based on Dr Aykroyed
formula for Minimum Need Based Wage which was adopted by 15th Indian Labour Conference held in 1957. This needed to be updated as per present day requirements. As per law of natural justice and as per directions of the Supreme Court of India issued as long back as in 1991 in the case of Reputekos Brett & Co. Vs  Workers & others.

c) Prescribed provision of 25% to cover education, recreation, festivals & medical expenses has been reduced to 15% by 7th CPC. Similarly provision for housing has been reduced from prescribed 7.5% to 3% which are totally inadequate, unjust and unrealistic..

d) In para 4.2.8, Step-1, 7th CPC indicated that a family is comprising of three consumption units, as per norms set by 15th Indian Labour Conference (ILC) in 1957.

e) Computing husband as one unit, wife as 0.8 unit and two children each below the age of 14 as 0.6 unit is very much inadequate and 15th ILC had not considered maintenance of aged parents.

f) Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007 make it a legal obligation for children and heirs to provide maintenance to senior citizens and parents, by monthly allowance.

g) It is therefore, necessary that while calculating cost for maintenance household the aged parents should also be considered as 2 Units besdes the husband, wife,  two Children as consumption units per family and the same should be taken at least as four (if not five) instead of three.

h) Dr. W. Aykroyd formula on food & other requirements and associated requirements specified by 15th ILC shall be applied for 4 consumptio units per family.

i) Minimum Pay works out to be Rs.24,000 (instead of Rs.18000 recommended by the 7th CPC) and the multiple factor 3.43 (instead of 2.57 recommended by the 7th CPC)

j) Table-1 of 7th CPC for calculation of minimum pay needs to be redrawn as under by keeping 4 consumption unit per family:

2. MINIMUM PLUS DA WITH 40% FIXATION BENEFIT

a) 40% fixation benefit was given over 4th CPC scale to 5th CPC scale in general to all the scales.

b) 40% of maximum of 5th CPC scale was given over 5th CPC scale as fixation benefit in general in 6th CPC scales.

c) But, only 14.29% (i.e even less than 15%) of basic pay has been given as fixation benefit is after the 7th CPC over 6th CPC pay, which is grievously inadequate.

d) Table-2 given below gives the comparison on fixation benefit given after 6th CPC & after 7th CPC.

e) The Multiple Factor of 2.57 proposed by the Pay Commission for Pay Fixation is totally unjust, inadequate and arbitrary especially keeping in view the high  inflation (in real terms and wage rise in the organized sector including the PSUs after two revisions in PSUs since the Sixth CPC. The Fixation Benefit needs to  be at least 40% - as after the last two Pay Commissions and the Common Multiple Factor may please be fixed at least (Pay+DA) + 40% of Pay + DA, ie. 3.15  times of 6th CPC basic pay.
Table -3 showing calculation of new pay which will be equal to Pay + Pay fixation benefit equal to 40% of 6th CPC Pay + DA

7No. of times increase in basic pay3.15
8Real wage no. of times increase1.40
k) Minimum Pay works out to be Rs.22,100 (instead of Rs.18000 recommended by the 7th CPC) and the multiple factor 3.15 (instead of 2.57 recommended by the 7th CPC)

3. MINIMUM PAY BY MERGER OF DA EVERY TIME THE DA RISES BY 50%

a) Merger of DA with Pay & Pension was always done every time the DA crossed 50%, except after the Sixth Pay Commission and that norm justifiably needs to be
restored.

b) Minimum Pay as on 1-1-2016 would be Rs.19,687 if DA was merged with Pay when the DA crossed 50% (from 1-1-2011) and when it crossed 100% even without any relief  or fixation benefit of 7th CPC and the Minimum Pay would bebRs. 22,483 or say 22,500 with 14.29% of total emoluments Fixation benefit given by the 7th CPC (which  itself was the lowest ever after any CPC) - as per detailed calculations submitted below:

4. a) Minimum Pay after DA Merger at 50% & 100% and with 14.29% rise.

7000×1.5 = 10500 x 1.5 = 15750×1.25 = Rs.19687×1.1429 = 22500.272 or say Rs.22000

b) Fitment Factor after DA Merger at 50% & 100% and with 14.29% rise

= 22500 / 7000 = 3.21 times of BP
c) Even if the Merger of DA was done only once after it crossed 50% (on 1-1-2011), Minimum Pay as on 1-1-2016 would have been Rs.18375 (without any relief or
fixation benefit of CPC) and Rs.20984 or say Rs.21000 with 14.2% Fixation benefit given by the 7th CPC as per details below:

d) Minimum Pay after DA Merger at 50% & 100% and 14.2% rise:

= 7000 x 1.5 = 10500 x 1.75 = 18375 x 1.1429 = Rs.21000.7875 or say Rs.21000.
e) Fitment Factor after DA Merger at 50% and 14.2% rise
21000 / 7000 = 3 times of BP

f) All the foregoing calculations of Minimum Pay and Fitment Factor are linked to only 14.2% rise of wages as inherent in the recommendations of 7th CPC - which is  the lowest ever rise after a Pay Commission in recent years.

g) The minimum Pay may please be fixed as Rs.22500 and the multiple factor for revision of Pay and Pension may please be fixed as 3.21.

4. It is, therefore, requested that, in view of above submissions:

a) Minimum Pay may please be fixed as Rs.24,000 and the multiple factor 3.43, by modifying Dr.W.Aykroyed Formula & 15th ILC norms by duly taking into account Maintenance and Welfare of Parents and Senior Citizens Act, 2007. (or)

b) Minimum Pay be fixed as Rs.22,100 and the multiple factor 3.15 by giving 40% fixation benefit for the 6th CPC Pay & DA. (or)

c) Minimum Pay may please be fixed as Rs.22500 and the multiple factor for revision of Pay and Pension may please be fixed as 3.21, by merging the DA with Pay whenever it crossed 50% with fixation benefit of 14.2% equitant to the rise recommended by 7th CPC.

Thanking you in anticipation,
Yours faithfully,

Satisfied with Parrikar’s response on pay commission: Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha

New Delhi: The armed forces today said they have raised “anomalies” in the 7th Pay Commission with Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and were satisfied with his response that the issue will be resolved at the earliest.

The statement by the Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff Committee (CoSC) Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha comes just days after the three services issued letters to their formations, saying they have asked the government to hold “in abeyance” the implementation of the CPC in view of the “unresolved anomalies”.
The forces argue that the anomalies lower the status and pay parity of forces vis-a-vis their counterparts in the police and civilian administration.

Raha and Navy Admiral Sunil Lanba had also met with Parrikar on Monday over the issue.
The 7th Pay Commission anomalies in respect of the armed forces were discussed with the Defence Minister in detail by the Service Chiefs and the members of the Armed Forces Pay Commission Cell, a statement by Raha’s office said.

The Defence Ministry is “seized of all the issues and has assured to resolve them at the earliest. The Services are satisfied with the response,” it said.

The statement came amid reports that the forces were not happy with Parrikar’s reply.

For kind consideration of the Committee of Secretaries on Allowances

Respected Sir,

Subject: 7th CPC Report - Reg. Allowances

Reference: Para 7 of Resolution of MOF GOI Notification No. 1-2/2016-IC Dated 25-7-2016
We have to submit as under for the kind consideration of the Committee on Allowances:

1. Seventh CPC in its report has categorized 196 allowances under 15 categories. Common allowances viz., Dearness Allowance, House Rent Allowance, Transport Allowance, Tour Travelling Allowance and Children Education Allowance, which fall under 3 categories i.e. Common Allowances, Department Specific Allowances and Category Specific Allowances.

Allowances are administered in broadly four ways
i. Indexed fully DA
ii. Indexed partially DA
iii. No DA indexation
iv. Percentage of Basic Pay

2. UNJUST AND ARBITRARY RECOMMENDATIONS:

a) It is regretted that none of the Allowances were dealt in detail and the Commission had recommended for abolition of 52 allowances without even going into the merit or justification of either of them.

b) Recommendations made by 7th CPC on allowances were not based on a just approach and there is need to review & revise the recommendations of 7th CPC on all allowances.

3. None of the previous Pay Commissions had ever dealt with the issue in such a ruthless, arbitrary and unjust manner, without even applying its mind to such a vital issue which affected lakhs of employees. All these Allowances had been granted as per statutory provisions of law and specific justifications and on the recommendations of the previous Pay Commissions or High Powered Committees on the specific issues.

As such, no allowances should be abolished and it should be left to the respective departments for the continuance of allowances as per nature of duties & job requirements.

4. CLASSIFICATION OF EXISTING ALLOWANCES:

As mentioned by the Pay Commission, the existing Allowances can be broadly classified as under:
SlNo.CategoryNumber of Allowances
1Allowances payable for Additional/Extra Duty14
2Allowances related to Knowledge Updates3
3Allowances related to Deputation3
4Allowances related to Working on Holidays3
5Allowances related to Housing7
6Allowances related to Good Service4
7Qualification Allowances15
8Allowances related to Risk and Hardship51
9Allowances for Running Staff of Indian Railways13
10Allowances related to Sports2
11Sumptuary Allowances5
12Allowances related to Training2
13Allowances related to Travel13
14Allowances related to Uniform9
15Other Allowances52
Total196

5. UNJUST FACTOR OF 2 ADOPTED BY 7TH CPC TO CALCULATE ALLOWANCES IN 7TH CPC SCALE (Para 4 of Chapter 8.2.5)

a. 7th CPC has used unjust factors to arrive at quantum of allowances in new pay.
b. Multiple Factor (of 2.57 recommended by 7th CPC - as may be revised by the Govt.) for revision of pay by 7th CPC be used for revision of allowances paid in fixed amount.
c. Factor of 80% of MF be used for allowances that are indexed partially with DA.
d. Factor of 40% of MF be used for allowances that are indexed fully with DA.
e. Factor of 1 be used for allowances that are paid on percentage of Basic Pay.

SNNature of AllowanceFactor recommended by 7th   CPCFactor proposed   *
1Allowances that are paid in fixed amount not indexed with DA2.252.57
2Allowances that are paid in fixed amount indexed partially with DA1.52
3Allowances that are paid in fixed amount indexed fully with DANo change1.4
4Allowances that are paid in percentage of Basic Pay0.81
* Multiple factor recommended by 7th CPC (or) as may be revised by the Govt.

6. ALLOWANCES APPLICABLE TO RAILWAYS

1. Sub: PCO ALLOWANCE (para 8.17.101) - Reduction recommended by 7th CPC is unjust and should not be implemented:

a. Incentive system followed in Indian Railways is unique for its system & within Railway Budget. The system is cost effective since it improved the productivity by better utilization of men, machine & infrastructure. By introducing incentive system in the Production Units & Workshops, Indian Railways improved its efficiency.

b. Technicians, Junior Engineers, Senior Section Engineers & helpers working in shop / section are included in the incentive system. Direct Incentive (at piece rate) is being paid to Technicians working in four grades. Average incentive based on the performance of individual shop / section is being paid to helpers & Junior Engineers. Technicians, helpers and Junior Engineers are paid at hourly rates as per RBE No.194/2009. Senior Section Engineers working in shop floor are paid 15% of their basic pay as incentive.

c. Junior Engineers & Technicians who are posted in production control organization on tenure basis in the same grade are eligible for PCO allowance in lieu of incentive at the rate of 15% of their basic pay. Likewise Senior Section Engineers who are posted in production control organization on tenure basis are eligible for PCO allowance in lieu of incentive at the rate of 7.5% of their basic pay.

d. Revision of incentive rates along with productivity improvement by reducing allowed time is being done in Railways after the implementation of every Pay Commission recommendations in a holistic manner.

e. In the year 1999 while revising the incentive rates 12.5% fatigue & contingency allowances were reduced from the allowed time. In the year 2009 while revising the incentive rates 5% allowed time had been reduced across the board. Effectively 17.5% of additional man power and corresponding additional infrastructure were made available to improve the productivity.

f. Incentive rates & PCO allowance are integral part of Incentive system being followed in Railways. Revision of incentive rates & PCO allowance have to done at same time by taking all factors including productivity improvement into consideration.

g. Hence 7th CPC’s recommendations on PCO Allowance may please be ignored and the same be continued to be paid at the existing rates of 15% & 7.5% of new basic pay respectively.

2. BREAKDOWN ALLOWANCE (para 8.10.8 & 8.10.80) Recommended for abolition needs to be continued:

a. 7th CPC has recommended for abolition of Breakdown allowance stating that it is part of Government employees’ duty to respond to emergencies.

b. Breakdown Allowance is being paid to the employees who constitute breakdown squad. Work down during breakdown is not of routine nature and it requires special skill to restore railway operation in case of emergency.

c. It also fixes responsibility to breakdown squad to respond immediately to any emergencies as per laid down procedures.

d. It is therefore requested to continue Breakdown allowance atleast equal to one day basic pay rounded off to next hundreds as per the table given below.

4. TEACHING ALLOWANCE - be paid 30% of Basic pay (para 8.14.8 & 8.14.9):

a. Given to all non-permanent faculty members joining training institutions on deputation.

b. In 1986 when this allowance was introduced 30% of total emoluments were granted. Fourth CPC reduced it to 30% of basic pay. In the year 1991-92 due to the resource crunch, the allowance was reduced to 15 % of basic pay.

c. Training allowance is granted to non-faculty members, to attract more intelligent and knowledgeable persons to the training institutes. Due the availability of incentive schemes and other benefits the present rate of Training allowance does not motivate intelligent and knowledgeable persons to join Training institutions.

d. Even though Sixth Pay Commission had not recommended for any change in % of basic pay paid as Training Allowance, Railways / Government have made principle decision to increase the Training Allowance from 15% to 30% keeping in view the necessity to attract more talent & expertise faculty to the Training Institutions, but still the decision has not been implemented.

e. But, 7th CPC has proposed to reduce the teaching allowance for existing 15% to 12% for non permanent training faculties’ working in various training institutes for non Gazteed staff.

f. In the present fast technological improvement scenario to attract intelligent and knowledgeable persons to the training institutions, the Training allowance should be restored to 30 % of basic pay and Eligibility for maximum period of five years recommended by 7th CPC should be ignored since many of Railway training institutes are having eight year tenure for teaching faculties.

5. RISK & HARDSHIP ALLOWANCE (para 8.10.64):

Recommendations on Risk Allowance by previous Pay Commission a narration
SecondCPCRecommended Rs.3 to unskilled staff working in Defense and Railways whose work was exceptionally heavy or whose normal duty involved special risks such as those of chemical process or those who handled explosives. Also extended to sweepers working in underground sewers.
Third CPCRecommended Rs.10. Included semi skilled workers worked in boiler plants and cold storage plants.
Committee on Risk allowanceClassified   the   beneficiaries   into   four   categories,   namely,   Semi-skilled,   skilled, supervisors and Certain gazetted and non-gazetted officers. The rate ranged from Rs.15 to Rs.100 per month.
Fourth CPCRecommended 100% increase in the existing rates.
Fifth CPCa)   Contingent Risk Relate to one-time events where the event is uncertain.b)   Continuous  Risk  Situation  where  the  risk  is  inherent  and  continuous  in  the occupational itself with adverse effects on health.
c)   Fifth  CPC  recommended  Risk  allowance  for  those  categories  which  fall  under sl.no.2.
d)   It also de-notified some of categories.
e)   Recommended Risk allowance ranged from Rs.40 to Rs.300.
Sixth CPC6th  CPC opinioned that risk factors in any job should be removed instead of making  allowance for them and all other conditions of work should be taken care in the pay scale itself.
But Sixth CPC didn’t followed its own recommendations and granted common pay scales for all non technical, technical and staff who works in open to sky areas.
a. On the Railways, especially in open line depots and yards, exposure to hot sun, heavy rain, cold climate and unhygienic open to sky work areas particularly, presence of human excreta are having continues inherent health risks as part of their occupation itself, that cannot be eliminated.

b. There are other areas which are having continuous inherent risk in their occupation - for example:

i. In Welding shops, Paint shops, Forge & Smith shop, Electroplating shops in Workshops and Production Units of Indian Railways having adverse effects of health.

ii. In Diesel Shed exposure to high noise to the decibel level of 180, working temperature around 50 degree centigrade and air pollution beyond permissible levels.

iii. In Track maintenance exposure to hot sun, heavy rain, cold climate and unhygienic open to sky working, presence of human excreta and other non-biodegradable wastes having inherent health risks.

iv. C&M Staff exposed to radiations like X-ray and many Chemicals.

c. It is therefore requested to extend Risk & hardship allowance to sheds & depots and open line Technical staff &Technical Supervisors as per medium & low risk factors of Risk & hardship Matrix recommended by 7th CPC.

6. Internet Allowance, Mobile Phone Allowance (para 8.17.61):

a. 7th CPC left it to individual departments / ministries to deal with internet, mobile & newspaper allowance. Indian Most Railways employees are using their individual mobile and / or internet to perform the official duty.

b. It is therefore requested that all the non-supervisory employees may please be granted with Rs.500 and Technical Supervisors may please be granted Rs.1000 as communication allowance. Or all supervisors may please be provided with CUG connections with free talk time of Rs.1000 per month.

7. Night Duty Allowance (para 8.17.77):

a. 7th CPC recommended for continuing the present formulation of weightage of 10 minutes for every hour of duty performed between the hours of 22.00 and 06.00. Hourly rate of equal to (BP+DA)/200 also continued.

b. It is requested that Formulation of weightage of 10 minutes for every hour of duty performed between 22.00 and 6.00 hours may please be changed to 20 minutes for every hour of duty performed between 18.00 and 6.00 hours in view of hazards of work during Night Shift.

7. GENERAL ALLOWANCES APPLICABLE TO ALL CENTRAL GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES

1. DEARNESS ALLOWANCE (para 8.17.37)

a. The existing formula for DA is weighed heavily against the employees in view of following reasons:

b. All India Consumer Price Index (Industrial Workers) on which the presently based, is itself defective in so far as the weightage give to various items is arbitrary and not based on present day requirement.

c. By changing the base year to 2016 whatever advantage that had emerge out of the 7th Pay commission will be neutralized. for example the DA as on 1-7-2016 works out to be 7% on previous base year which would have been Rs.490 on the old Basic Pay of Rs. 7000 but it would now be only Rs. 360 i.e. 2% of new Basic Pay of Rs.18000.

d. Most importantly, the fraction of %age rise is totally ignored while declaring the revised DA. This considerably erodes the real wage every time the DA is revised. (For example the %age rise of Price Index from 1-1-2016 works out to be 2.92 but the DA as per existing system would be only 2% thus resulting in 0.92% erosion of Pay & Pension in the very first year of 7th CPC)
e. This is against the Law of Averages which lays down the principle that for rounding off the fraction below half may be ignored and the fraction more than half should be rounded off to the next higher point.

f. In any case, the fraction ignored in previous half year should be added in the next half year (for example the Average Price Index was 125.83 at the end of December, 2016. But the fraction of 0.83 was ignored and Pay rise was given only on 125%. The balance of 0.83% should be added to 2.92 for calculation the DA from July, 2016 thus DA @ 3% instead of 2% fro 1-7-2016).
It is, therefore, requested as under)

a) Weight-age given to various items in the All India Consumer Price Index, may please be modified as per present day requirements.

2. HOUSE RENT ALLOWANCE (para 8.7.3 to 8.7.16)

3. TRANSPORT ALLOWANCE (8.15.44 to 8.15.54)

10% of Pay + DA be granted as Transport Allowance uniformly for all cities in India since the cost of fuel is almost equal in all cities and other areas.
Transport Allowance may please be revised as under:

4. CHILDREN EDUCATION ALLOWANCE SCHEME & HOSTEL SUBSIDY (para 8.17.11 to 8.17.17)

Grant of Children Education Assistance and Reimbursement of actual Tuition Fee or 2.57 times of existing rates & Extension of the scheme.

a. Under the Scheme of Children Education Allowance reimbursement is granted to Government Servants upto a maximum of two children and for children from classes nursery to twelve, including classes eleventh and twelfth held by junior colleges or schools affiliated to Universities or Boards of Education. Annual ceiling of Rs.12,000 per child has been increased to Rs.18,000 per child when the DA crossed 100% in 6th CPC scale.

b. Limiting the scheme only upto 12th standard is also graciously inadequate, since expenses for higher education & professional education are (even in Government institutions) very high and getting out of reach of salaried people.

c. It therefore requested that
i. Actual expenses incurred towards Children Education shall be reimbursed or the existing CEA Rs.18000 shall be indexed by 2.57 to Rs.46,260.
ii. The scheme may please be extended to college education also.
iii. Children Education Allowance & Hostel Subsidy shall be allowed to avail concurrently.

5. Fixed Medical Allowance (para 8.17.52):

Considering the high cost of medical treatment in old age FMA should be raised from the present level of Rs.500 to Rs.2000 and it should be paid to all the retired employees without any restriction.

6. Family Planning Allowance (para 8.17.50 ) Recommended for abolition needs to be continued

a. Family planning allowance initially granted the amount equal to one increment of the pay scale the employee belongs, but subsequently it has been reduced considerably and the rate granted after Sixth Pay Commission is very meagre as given below,

b. It requested to grant Family Planning Allowance at least equal to one increment in the revised scale, or it should be indexed by the factor of 2.57 and rounded off to next hundred as given in table below.

IV. ALLOWANCES WHICH ARE NOT CONSIDERED BY 7TH CPC.

1. Sub: Grant of PCO Allowance / Incentive Bonus to Technical Staff Supporting Shops / Sections (including  CMT / (C & M Lab), Drawing / Design, IT Power Supply & Stores etc)  in Railway Workshops & Production Units  Treating them as part of Inspection, Planning & Progress wings of PCO.

a. Technical Staff in Drawing / Design Office, CMT/ (M & C Lab), IT, Stores, Maintenance & Power Supply etc., in Railway Workshops & Production Units play important roles in improving the production & productivity through upkeep & maintenance of machinery, plants & equipments; improved Tools, Templates, Jigs & Fixtures & designing of components & prototypes of Rolling Stocks; ensuring uninterrupted supply of Power and requisite Stores; and effective quality control through intensive inspection & Testing (including 100% Testing in many areas of in house production) to ensure correct chemical composition & metallurgical qualities as per specifications etc.

b. But all these staffs are not paid either any Incentive Bonus or the PCO Allowance like the other Technical Supervisors & Staff in the PCO (Production Control Organisation). Thus they get less take home pay than the rest of the technical staff in the Workshops & Production Units, inspite of substantial contribution & technological inputs to the productivity. This is against the principle of “equal work equal pay” and discriminatory.

c. It is, therefore, requested that the Technical Staff in Supporting Shops / Sections (including CMT / (C & M Lab), Drawing / Design, IT, Maintenance, Power Supply & Stores etc) - in Workshops & Production Units be treated as part of Inspection Planning & Progress wings of PCO & paid either the PCO Allowance or Incentive Bonus as EIW Staff - at par with their counterparts working in PCO / Shop floor.

2. DESIGN ALLOWANCE

a. Fifth Pay Commission ( vide Para 50.19 ) had recommended for grant of Design Allowance of Rs.300 for Junior Engineers and Rs.600 for Assistant Engineers and the Recommendation was accepted by the Government and implemented in the CPWD ( vide their letter No. 15/4/98-DW(S&D)547-1000 dated 9.6.2000), but the same was not implemented by the Railways although the JEs & SSEs in the Drawing & Design Offices on the Railways do a lot of designing work as mentioned in details in annexure of this report. This is very unjust and discriminatory.
b. It is therefore requested to kindly recommend for grant of Design Allowance to the JEs & SSEs in the Drawing & Design Office on the Railways - at par with their counterparts in the CPWD.

3. GRANT OF SPECIAL PAY or IT ALLOWANCE

a. To get the maximum advantage from the latest Information Technology the Railways had to induct talented IT Engineers who are in possession of not only the domain knowledge of the functioning of the day to day working of the Zone, Division & workshop; but also additionally the skill and aptitude for and possessing I.T Skills for manning and administering the Computer Centres started in different Workshops and Divisions.

b. The different Zonal Railway Administrations have formed IT Centres by inducting good number of Technical Supervisors / Supervising Engineers and other Technical Personnel (in addition to staff from other categories) from the Workshops / Divisions - (preferably) possessing higher qualifications like B.E. / AMIE etc. Computer Aptitude Test and gave them specialized training in various computer aspects for efficient maintenance of EDP Centres as well as different M.I.S Application Packages. There is also element of Direct Recruit in the Grade Of Junior Engineer/IT & Senior Engineer/IT.

c. These IT Engineers have been performing the sophisticated jobs without any Special Pay which is in vogue for other categories of staff for performing special types of jobs like imparting training in the Training Organisation on Railways.
d. It is therefore requested that to grant Special Pay or IT Allowance to Junior Engineers/IT & Senior Engineer/IT to attract and retain talented personnel in this new horizon of Information Technology.

4. CCA - CITY COMPENSATORY ALLOWANCE

a. CCA - City Compensatory Allowance should be restored to meet the peculiar needs especially of the big cities and Metros, towards payment of Professional Taxes to the Local Governments/Local Authorities, Miscellaneous expenses, higher expenses of children for attending to distant schools and colleges, etc

b. CCA be linked to the Consumer Price Index or D.A. The rates of CCA be automatically increase by 25% whenever the Dearness Allowance goes up by 25%.

Central government pensioners can track status via SMS, online

Central government pensioners can track status via SMS, online

New Delhi: Over 11.61 lakh Central government pensioners can now track the status of their pension and grievance redressal through SMS as well as monitor receipts online steps that aim to "lessen harassment" for senior citizens.

The web portal launched by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley today will enable central civil pensioners, family pensioners and freedom fighter pensioners to view their complete pension profile digitally by logging into www.Cpao.Nic.In.

They will also be provided with SMS facility for tracking status of pension process and their grievance registration as well as disposal.

The website, which will serve as a one-stop destination for providing information and speedy redressal of grievances, can also be accessed through mobile devices and it would also provide an option to pensioners to give their feedback.

Launching the portal, Jaitley said it is an extremely important initiative which will lessen harassment.
“Nobody should be harassed, least of all pensioners because they are mostly senior citizens. And they need that resource and their life depends on that resource. So any delay or red tapism can actually cause a lot of harassment if not destitution,” he said.

He said the facility of tracking pension status on mobile phone is a giant step taken by the Central Pension Accounting Office (CPAO).

The website will provide one-stop solution for pensioners to access information relating to status of pension cases, and pension payments processed by central ministries and banks.

CPAO disburses the pensions through authorised banks to central government pensioners and in the current fiscal it is managing the pension budget of Rs 32,070 crore. In 2015-16, the CPAO handled 60,211 pensioners’ grievances.

Speaking on the occasion, Controller General of Accounts M J Joseph said the portal will bring in transparency and accountability and ensure more responsive way of handling pensioners grievances.

(ii) Area Specific Allowances  The allowances which are granted to all Central Government employees who are posted to a particular location.(2)
(iii) Department Specific Allowances which are granted to a section of the employees in a Department/Ministry taking into account the special nature of jobs assigned to them. (4)
We have received the notes from the Postal, Defence and Railway Organisations. We have requested the Associations/Federations of other departments to send us the notes in the matter. We hope to receive the same soon. As and when the same is received, it will be submitted.

We have endorsed a copy of this letter to the Joint Secretary(Implementation Cell). We have also asked the Departmental Associations to submit their notes on the Department Specific Allowances to the Implementation Cell as also to their Heads of Departments. We request you to kindly convene the meeting of the Committee to discuss the allowances on which Notes are presented to you through this letter.
