The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of the rates of Night Duty Allowance (NDA) – recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission-reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II-2017/HW-1 dated 08/03/2018 (RBE No.36/2018).
(ii) NFIR’s letter No. I/5(E) dated 30/07/2018.

Federation vide its letter dated 30th July, 2018 brought to the notice of Railway Board specific cases through illustrations where revised rates of Night Duty Allowance to be paid to various categories of staff have been lowered down on implementation of Board’s instructions dated 08/03/2018 (RBE No. 36/2018) and requested the Railway Ministry to review its decision and issue revised instructions duly allowing the rates of Night Duty Allowance to such staff at the rates mentioned in RBE No. 61/2016 w.e.f. 01/01/2016. A period for more than four months has passed, unfortunately revised instructions have not been issued so far causing financial loss to the staff performing night duty.

NFIR, therefore, once again urges upon the Railway Board to kindly consider the points brought out vide Federation’s letter dated 30/07/2018 and issued revised instructions accordingly.

Yours faithfully,

(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

  1. Western Railway vide their letter dt. 06.03.2017 has also apprised that Accounts Clerk and Stenographers are getting GP Rs.4600/- and GP Rs.4800/- as 3rd MACPS respectively whereas under the ACP Scheme no further financial upgradation beyond GP of Rs. 4200/- for Accounts Clerks and Rs.4600 for Stenographer would be admissible. Accordingly Union has also mentioned that ACP is more advantageous than MACP Scheme for certain categories of employees is contrary to the factual position.

    The Staff are put in disadvantageous position on account of financial upgradation allowed in pay structure hierarchy under MACPS. For Stenographers, and Accounts Clerks, ACP was more advantageous. Kindly take up the issue of MACP implementation w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of Sept. 2008.
