An important clarification from Railway Board regarding Stepping up of Pay…
This is an important clarification from Railway Board regarding the stepping up of pay, which was raised by Railway Trade Unions, an employee was appointed through Direct Recruitment and his pay was fixed more than the senior of the same cadre pay.
An employee working as Accounts Clerk was promoted as Junior Accounts Assistant (GP Rs.2800) after 1.1.2006 and his pay was fixed as per Revised Railway Services Rules. On a subsequent date another employee (Junior to him) was appointed as Junior Accounts Assistant (GP Rs.2800) through Direct Recruitment and his pay was fixed under Railway Revised Rules, which happened to be more than that of the above senior.
This doubt has been raised in the Board, the Railway Board has now clarified that the "pay of senior employee promoted to a post after 1.1.2006 may be stepped up vis-a-vis his junior who was directly recruited on a subsequent date to the same post subject to the condition that they belong to the same seniority list for all purposes".
