Committee to examine the recommendations of 7th CPC regarding Allowances - NFIR

NFIR 
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen 
3, CHELMSFORD ROAD, NEW DELHI – 110 055

No.IV/NFIR/7 CPC(IMPL)/Allowances/2016
Dated: 08/09/2016
The Secretary(E), Railway Board, New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Committee to examine the recommendations of 7th CPC regarding Allowances-reg.

In the committee meeting held on 1st September 2016, under the Chairmanship of Finance Secretary at North Block (Room No. 72) New Delhi, the Standing Committee Members of JCM (Staff Side) expressed views on 7th CPC recommendations on Allowances. After hearing the views, the Chairman of the meeting stated that further meetings will be held and suggested that in the mean time the Staff Federations may send the list containing department specific Allowances to the concerned administrative ministries and JCM (Staff Side) may send list of common allowances to JS (Imp) MoF, New Delhi for consideration. The Railway Board Chairman was also present during discussions held on 1st September 2016.

In this connection, NFIR desires to convey to the Railway Board that:-

(a) while the previous Pay Commission had doubled various Allowances, the 7th CPC has recommended enhancement of only 50% of the existing rates in those cases of a few allowances recommended to be retained. This needs to be reviewed for improvement.

(b) The 7th CPC recommendations – mainly on Night Duty Allowance, National Holiday Allowance, Transport Allowance would in effect result reduction of existing amounts. These aberrations are required to be rectified and the amount of allowances enhanced.

(c) With regard to Allowances for Running Staff like Kilometerage, ALK etc., there should be separate discussions between the Federations and Railway Board for revision and improvement as was done in the past. Attention is also invited to Para 8.11.19 and 8.11.20 of the 7th CPC report.

(d) The Pay Commission in its report vide Para 8.2.5 has stated that any allowance not mentioned (and hence not reported to the Commission) shall cease to exist immediately. The Pay Commission has further stated that in case there is any demand or requirement for continuation of existing allowance, which has not been deliberated upon by the Commission, it should be re-notified by the Ministry concerned after obtaining due approval of MoF. NFIR suggests that this Para of the report be rejected by the Government. Alternatively, the administrative ministries be empowered for continuance of any such allowance, duly apprising the necessity of continuation to the MoF.

Federation also requests the Railway Board to kindly place before the Committee (chaired by Finance Secretary) the valid points brought out by the Federation through this letter and also impress upon the committee to retain the allowances listed in the Annexure and their enhancement, considering the fact that the Railways’ working is unique, complex and not comparable with any other Ministry.

Yours faithfully,
