The Secretary (E),
Sub: Implementation of recommendations of 6th CPC – merger of grades – revised classification and mode of filling up of non-gazetted posts – scheme for filling up of vacancies after 31/12/2013.
Ref: (i) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)I-2008/PM1/15 dated 03/09/2009, extended upto 31/12/2014 vide Board’s letter dated 16/06/2014.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)l-2008PM1/15 dated 07/08/2014.
(iii) GS/NFIR’s letter No.II/Pt. 5 dated 08/09/2014.
Federation desires to invite kind attention of the Railway Board to letter dated 03/09/2009, referred to above, wherein it was decided that promotion to all vacancies as existed on 31/08/2009 should be granted as indicated in the enclosure to the said letter. In para 3 of the said letter, it has further been mentioned that the scheme for filling up vacancies arising on or after 01/09/2009 will be issued in due course in consultation with the Federations. Currency of these instructions has been extended by the Railway Board from time to time, the latest extension covers vacancies upto 31/12/2014 vide Board’s letter dated 16/06/2014.
2. NFIR vide letter No.II/6/Pt. 5 dated 08/09/2014 has conveyed protest against arbitrary decision of Railway Board (Board’s letter dated 07/08/2014) to calculate DR, LDCE quota etc., in the merged grades based on Board’s letter dated 03/09/2009. The Federation has also highlighted the harm being done to staff pointing out the case of Technical Supervisors
belonging to JE, SSE.
3. Further to above NFIR wishes to state that the Federation has been receiving grievances from ministerial staff as well whose promotional avenues have also been effected adversely as can be seen from the following position:
|PREVIOUS (Vth CPC)||REVISED (VIth CPC)|
|Head Clerk 5000-8000||100% Promotion||Office Supdt.PB-2 GP 4200||20% LDCE||+10%||10% LDCE|
|Office Supdt-II 5500 – 9000||20% LDCE 80% Promotion||Office Supdt.PB-2 GP 4200||80% Promotion||-10||90% Promotion|
|Office Supdt.16500-10500||100% Promotion||Chief O.S. PB-2 GP 4600||100% Promotion||-||100% Promotion|
|Chief O.S. 7450-11500||100% Promotion||Chief O.S. PB-2 GP 4600||100% Promotion||-||100% Promotion|
It can be seen that 20% quota vacancies against LDCE quota in the category of OS/GP 4200 have wrongly been enhanced to 20% of total of V CPC pay scale posts which is improper.
The percentage needs to be brought down to 10%. NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to review and withdraw the instructions issued vide Board’s letter dated 07/08/2014 and hold discussions with the Federation.
