Anomaly in fixation of pay of Chief Loco Inspectors appointed prior to 01.01.2016 with reference to their juniors appointed after 01.01.2016 and drawing more pay than the seniors

No.E(P&A)II/2017/RS-06

New Delhi, dated 16.08.2019

The General Manager,
AU Indian Railways &
Production Units.

Sub : Anomaly in fixation of pay of Chief Loco Inspectors appointed prior to 01.01.2016 with reference to their juniors appointed after 01.01.2016 and drawing more pay than the seniors.
It has come to the notice of the Board that staff appointed prior to 1.1.2016 as Chief Loco Inspectors in the pre-revised pay structure, whose pay has been fixed in the 7th CPC pay structure for Chief Loco Inspectors under the RS(RP) Rules, 2016, are drawing less pay than their juniors appointed to the Supervisory post after 1.1.2016.

The anomaly has arisen due to the fact that the benefit of pay element granted at the time of promotion of running staff to a stationary post has been granted to the junior in the revised pay structure, whereas, the same benefit granted to the senior is of lesser value as the same has been calculated on pre-revised pay structure.

2. Rule 7(10) of RS(RP) Rules: 2016 contains the provisions for stepping up of pay in case of anomaly in pay fixation between senior and junior employees, subject to certain conditions.

The anomaly in the case of Chief Loco Inspectors has arisen due the benefit of pay element reckoned for fixation of pay on promotion of running staff to a stationary post being granted in pre-revised pay structure or revised pay structure.

3. Therefore, in accordance with Rule 7(10) ofRS(RP) Rules, 2016, it has been decided that the anomaly be resolved by granting stepping up of pay to the seniors at par with the juniors subject to the following conditions:-

(a) Both the junior and the senior Railway servants should belong to the same cadre from which they have been promoted to the higher post and the posts in which they have been promoted should be identical in the same cadre;

(b) The existing pay structure and the revised pay structure of the lower and higher posts in which they are entitled to draw are identical;

(c) The senior Railway servants at the time of promotion are drawing equal or more pay than the junior;

(d) The stepping up of pay will be allowed to running staff appointed as Chief Loco Inspectors only in whose cases extant quantum of pay element (at present 30%) is reckoned for pay fixation. The stepping up of pay will not be admissible to the non-running staff appointed as Loco Running Supervisors as in their cases the question of pay element in the running allowance does not arise;

(e) If even in the lower post, revised or pre-revised, the junior was drawing more pay than the senior by virtue of advance increments granted to him or otherwise, stepping up will not be permissible;

(f) In cases where the conditions are not met, stepping up of pay would not be admissible. For instance a Chief Loco Inspector promoted from Loco Pilot (Goods) prior to 1.1.2016 and the junior promoted to Chief Loco Inspector from Loco Pilot (Passenger) or from Loco Pilot (Mail/Express) [i.e. from a different post/cadre] after 1.1 .2016 are not identical and such would not come under the purview of instructions relating to stepping up of pay.

(g) In this connection, it is stated that LP (Goods), LP (Passenger) and LP (M/E) form three different and distinct seniority units and would, therefore, constitute different cadres/posts in the context of clause (a) above as clearly brought out in (f) above.

(h) Stepping up will be allowed only once, the pay so fixed after stepping up will remain unchanged;

(i) The senior shall be entitled to the next increment on completion of his required qualifying service with effect from the date of refixation of pay.

4. This has the approval of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

Defence MoD clarifies there is no proposal to privatise OFB

MoD clarifies there is no proposal to privatise OFB
16th AUG 2019

In continuation of the meeting held on August 14, a Committee of senior officials of Ministry of Defence led by Additional Secretary, Department of Defence Production alongwith Chairman, Ordnance Factory Board (OFB) once again met the office bearers of the All India Defence Employees Federation, Indian National Defence Workers Federation, Bhartiya Pratiksha Mazdoor Sangh and Confederation of Defence Recognized Association here today on the issue of Strike notice given by them starting with effect from August 20,2019. The meeting was also attended by officials from the Ministry of Labour & Employment, Government of India.

The Committee also pointed out that the employees’ call for 30 days’ strike was unprecedented, especially when Government has already agreed to their demand to hold discussions at the MoD level and is in process of continuously engaging with them.

The Committee explained to the employee organisations that there is no proposal to privatise OFB. The proposal under consideration of Government is to make it into Defence Public Sector Undertakings (DPSUs), which is 100 per cent Government owned. Rumours being spread that OFB is being privatised are misguiding and with the intent to mislead the workers. Corporatisation of OFB will bring OFB at par with other DPSUs of MoD. This is in the interest of OFB as it will provide operational freedom and flexibility to OFB which it presently lacks. Besides, the interests of the workers will be adequately safeguarded in any decision taken on the subject.

The Committee also pointed out that Government has been continuously trying to strengthen the functioning of OFB, including having taken several steps to modernise the factories, carry out capital upgradation, re-train and re-skill OFB employees at Government costs, enable development of products and components with indigenous technology. The Committee urged the employee organisations to recognise Government’s efforts to make OFB into a competitive, productive and efficient organisation with higher turnover and enhanced profitability, which would also be in the interest of the employees. Therefore, the Committee once again urged the employee organisations to withdraw their proposed strike.
