ANSWER

MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(SHRI RAJEN GOHAIN)

(a) & (b): Impact of implementing recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission on pay and pension assessed to be around Rs.20,000 crore annually has been provided in the expenditure budgeted for 2016-17. However, in view of trend of shortfall in earnings in the current year which in the Ist quarter fell short of the proportionate target by Rs.6,755 crore (14.8%), some steps need to be taken to avoid eventuality of having inadequate resources to meet the expenditure. These may, besides increasing earnings & economy measures to curb expenditure; include deferring the payment of dividend, seeking help of the Ministry of Finance for reimbursing cost of social services obligation being borne by the Railway, etc.

(c) & (d): No request as such has been made to Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Defence & Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment.

(e): The recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission as approved by Government have been implemented on Railways.
