No.IV/NFIR/MACPS/09/Pt.7
Dated: 08/10/2013
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) for Railway employees - clarification - reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board's letter No.PC-V/2009/ACP/2 dated 31/01/2013.
         (ii) NFIR's letter No.IV/NFIR/MACPS/09/Pt.7 dated 29/07/2013.


NFIR vide its letter dated 29/07/2013 had invited attention of Railway Board to their letter dated 31/01/2013 wherein clarifications have been issued by Board contrary to the instructions issued by DoP&T vide 0.M. dated 4th 0ctober, 2012 allowing benefit of MACPS in the following situation:-

"Financial upgradation under MACPS, in the case of staff who joined another Unit/0rganisation on request."

The benefit of MACPS has been allowed by DoP&T pursuant to the decision in the meeting held with the Staff Side (under item no.6) to resolve anomalies arising out of implementation of MACPS.

2. In this connection, NFIR wishes to reiterate that the modified instructions issued by Railway Board vide letter dated 31/01/2013 making amendment to DoP&T instructions, have put a large number of railway employees to disadvantageous position. Federation further wishes to state that there was no necessity for making changes in the DoP&T 0.M. as the process of fixation of pay of staff while implementing MACPS could have easily taken care of the element of protected pay and did not warrant any amendment as has been done by Railway Board.

NFIR, therefore, once again urges the Railway Board to see that 0.M. dated 4th 0ctober, 2012 is implemented in toto and the instructions dated 31/01/2013 are withdrawn. A copy of instructions thus issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

(M.Raghavaiah)

Expected DA From Jan 2014-Possibility Of Increase Of DA By 11%

Expected DA From Jan 2014-Possibility Of Increase Of DA By 11%

As per the present state DA has reached 90 %. At this juncture, Central Government Employees are eagerly waiting to know the percentage of increase in the month of Jan 2014. The DA increase in the month of Jan 2014 does have certain importance in it. Because when DA reaches 100%, there is a possibility of increase of certain allowances also simultaneously. As per the recent publication of AICPIN value, DA has reached the height of 93.85 % at present. During the coming four months, if the AICPIN value increases by 1 point, there is a possibility of DA reaching the 100 % mark. Likewise, if the average becomes 2 point, there is a chance of reaching 101 % as DA. During the ensuing four months, based on the value calculation of AICPIN, it would be possible to calculate DA accurately. Still, there is maximum possibility of increase of DA by 11 %
