S.No.PC-VI/131 RBE No. 236 /2009

No.E(P&A)II/2008/RS-37 New Delhi, dated 24.07.2009

The General Managers/CAOs,

All Indian Railways & Prod. Units etc,

(as per mailing lists No.I & II)

Sub : Anomaly in fixation of pay of Loco Supervisory staff appointed prior to 01.01.2006 with reference to their juniors appointed after 01.01.2006 and drawing more pay than the seniors.

It has come to the notice of the Board that staff appointed prior to 1.1.2006 as Loco Running Supervisors in the pre-revised pay scales, whose pay has been fixed in the replacement pay structure for Loco Running Supervisors under the RS(RP) Rules, 2008, are drawing less pay than their juniors appointed as Loco Running Supervisor after 1.1.2006. The anomaly has arisen due to the fact that the benefit of element of Running allowance 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 scale.

2. It has been decided that the anomaly may be resolved by granting stepping up of pay in pay band to the seniors at par with the juniors in terms of Note 10 below Rule 7 of RS (RP) Rules, 2008.

3. The benefit of stepping up of pay in pay band will be subject to the following conditions:-

(a) Both the junior and the senior Railway servants should belong to the same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted should be identical in the same cadre and other conditions enumerated in Note 10 below Rule 7 of RS(RP) Rules, 2008 should also be fulfilled.

(b) The stepping up of pay will be allowed to running staff only appointed as Loco Supervisors in whose cases 30% of basic pay is taken as pay element in the running allowance. The stepping up of pay will not be admissible to the nonrunning staff of Mechanical Deptt. Appointed as Loco Running Supervisors as in their cases the question of pay element in the running allowance does not arise;

(c) 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;

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

(e) The next increment will be allowed on the following 1st July, if due, on completion of the requisite qualifying service with effect from the date of refixation of pay, as per the provisions of Rule 10 of RS(RP) Rules, 2008.

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

5. Hindi version will follow.
