Safety related retirement scheme: Staff working in G.P. Rs. 1800 is eligible even after getting MACP benefits.

 

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA

(RAILWAY BOARD)

New Delhi, dated 07.10.2010.

No.E(P&A)I-2010/RT/2

The General Managers,
All Indian Railways,
All Indian Railways.

Sub : Safety Related Retirement Scheme covering safety categories with Grade Pay of Rs.1800/-.

Ref: Board’s letter of even number dated 11.09.2010 and 24.09.2010.

AIRF raised a doubt that a large number of staff working in Grade Pay of Rs.1800/- would not be eligible to avail the benefit of the above Scheme after financial upgradation under the MACPS.

2. The matter has been considered and it is clarified that for determining the eligibility for seeking retirement under the Liberalized Active Retirement Scheme for Guaranteed Employment for Safety Staff (LARSGESS), Grade Pay corresponding to the post against which the employee is working on regular basis will be taken into account. In the other words, the staff working on the post with Grade Pay of Rs.1800/- will continue to be eligible for seeking retirement under the Scheme even after getting financial upgradation in Grade Pay higher than Rs.1800/- under MACPS.

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

4. Kindly acknowledge receipt.
