Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC)
No. I/11/Part I
The Secretary (E), Railway Board,
Sub: Grant of two additional increments at revised rates to Nursing Personnel pursuant of revision of pay (7th CPC)-reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 11/2008.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VI/2010/I/7/5/1 dated 14/03/2012.
The Railway Board vide letter dated 14/03/2012 had issued instructions to the Zonal Railways etc to grant two additional increments to the Nursing Staff possessing B.Sc. Degree as additional qualification in terms of para 160(2) (iii) of IREM Vol-I,1989 Edition, on the basis of pay drawn in 6th CPC Pay Band. These instructions were issued as a result of demand raised by NFIR vide PNM Item No. 11/2008.
Federation has since received representations from the Nursing staff of some Zonal Railways that the payment of two additional increments, based on the revised rates of 7th CPC is not yet ensured w.e.f. 01/01/2016, (the date of implementation of 7th CPC pay matrix) and payment continued at the old rates of 6th CPC Pay Band. The non-revision of additional increments rate has been causing hardships to the staff and grievances continued from Nursing Personnel.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly issue suitable clarification to all Zonal Railways/Production Units to grant two additional increments (3% each on 7th CPC Pay) from 01-01-2016 to the Nursing Personnel. A copy of instructions issued may please be endorsed to Federation.
