The Secretary (E),
Sub : Pay fixation in 7th CPC Pay Matrix level in the case of employees who are in 6th CPC – IS Pay Band (Rs.4440-7440) + GP 1300 – reg.
On Zonal Railways etc., there are cases of employees continued in 6th CPC Pay Band of IS (Rs. 4440-7440) with GP Rs. 1300, as these employees probably have not been granted GP Rs.1800,PB-I due to non-acquisition of minimum qualification of X Pass or its equivalent. Now the issue of granting Pay Fixation for these staff in the 7th CPC level has arisen as on some Zonal Railways, doubts are expressed and revised Pay Fixation is not being done.
In this connection, NFIR conveys that vide Railway Board’s Notification – RBE No. 90/2016 – Part A, the revised Pay Fixation has been provided in the 7th CPC Matrix to those in GP 1800 (6th CPC) and above, it has not been indicated with regard to pay fixation of those who are in GP 1300/- (Pay Band -IS Rs. 4440-7440). In the absence of fitment chart in RBE No. 90/2016, the Pay Fixation for those in -IS is not being done. ln view of this, clear instructions are required to be issued by the Board to the GMs etc.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue suitable instructions relating to Pay Fixation in the above cases. Federation also invites Board’s attention to the fitment table vide Annexure -E circulated under Board’s letter No. PC-VI/2008/I/RSRP/1 dated 11/09/2008 for appreciation. NFIR also requests the Railway Board to consider the skills and service experience gained by those staff who are presently in – IS Pay Band for the purpose of allotting them the Pay Matrix Level-1 (Rs. 18000/-). If Railway Board is of the view that Government’s approval is needed for placement of these staff in Pay Matrix Level-I, appropriate proposal be made to Ministry of Finance seeking approval as a special case.
