Sub: Revision of rates of stipend to apprentices and trainees on Railways.
Ref: Railway Board's letter No. PC-V/2008/PS/1 (Stipend) dated 15-12-2008

Consequent upon the promulgation of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 on the basis of the recommendations of the Seventh Central Pay Commission, the issue of revision in the rates of stipend to apprentices and trainees (non-gazetted) on Railways was under consideration. Now, the President is pleased to revise the rates of stipend to the apprentices and trainees as per the schedule attached herein.

2. It is likely that some of the existing categories of apprentices on certain Railways may not have designations identical to what appears in the enclosed Schedule. In such cases, the Railway administration, in consultation with FA & CAO, should identify the designation/category of the apprentice concerned with similar case appearing in the Schedule and determine the rate of stipend applicable thereto. Wherever such identification is not possible, specific cases may be reported to the Board with verbatim comments of the FA & CAO.

3. In case, the period of training as indicated in these orders is at variance with the actual practice in respect of one or more categories, the matter should be referred to the Railway Board for decision.

4. The apprentices and trainees will draw the revised rates of Dearness Allowance appropriate to the revised rates of stipend.

5. The revised rates of stipend will take effect from 01.08.2016.

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

7. Hindi version is enclosed.

Grievance Redressal Mechanism for the Jawans

Grievance Redressal Mechanism for the Jawans

Government of India has implemented a web based Centralized Public Grievance Redress and Monitoring System (CPGRAMS) in all its Ministries / Departments including the Ministry of Defence. This system provides online access to all citizens including the jawans and other Armed Forces personnel to lodge their grievances with the Ministry of Defence. The CPGRAMS system allows the Ministry to monitor the grievances and ensure their time bound redressal by the organisations / institutions concerned of the Ministry.

The Armed Forces also have systems in place for the redressal of grievances of their personnel. The procedures for dealing with statutory and non-statutory complaints and representations have been laid down under various sections of The Army Act, 1950; The Navy Act, 1957; The Air Force Act, 1950 and the regulations and orders issued on the subject. There are also informal mechanisms in place for redressal of grievances in the Armed Forces like the sainik sammelans, personal interviews, suggestion boxes, informal meetings, etc.
