*****

The conditions governing the admissibility of Extra Work Allowance (erstwhile Rajbhasha Allowance) to the Sr. Scale, JA Grade and SA Grade officers entrusted with administrative control of Hindi work are enumerated in Board’s orders of even number dated 02.01.2018. References have been received in Board’s Office seeking clarification regarding continuance of same officer as Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Chief Rajbasha Adhikari/ Additional Rajbhasha Adhikari beyond the period of one year in absence of suitable eligible officer to be nominated as such and admissibility of Extra Work Allowance to them in view of the stipulated conditions that an employee shall receive this allowance for a maximum period of one year and that there should be a minimum gap of one year before the same employee is deployed for similar duties again.

2. The matter has been examined in Board’s Office in consultation with Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) and it has been decided that the conditions governing Extra Work Allowance are to be adhered to strictly by all the Railways. In case, however, a suitable replacement is still unavailable for being nominated as Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Chief Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Additional Rajbhasha Adhikari for the second year, the existing incumbent may continue to discharge his duties as Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Chief Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Additional Rajbhasha Adhikari for the second year also, but without payment of Extra Work Allowance. The payment of this Allowance will resume from the 3rd year, if the same officer(s) continue(s) to be nominated as Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Chief Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Additional Rajbhasha Adhikari. Similarly, in case the same employee continues to be entrusted with administrative control of Hindi Work for the 4th year, he will do so without payment of the Extra Work Allowance, which will resume in the 5th year, if the same officer(s) continue(s) to work as Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Chief Rajbhasha Adhikari/ Additional Rajbhasha Adhikari.

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