Recommendations in respect of some important allowances paid to Pensioners

7th CPC Allowances

Rate of Fixed Medical Allowance (FMA) for Pensioners has been increased from Rs.500 per month to Rs.1000 per month. This will benefit more than 5 lakh central government pensioners not availing CGHS facilities.

i. The rate of Constant Attendance Allowance granted on 100% disablement has been increased from Rs.4500 per month to Rs.6750 per month.

11. Allowances to Scientific Departments

i. The recommendations of 7th CPC to abolish Launch Campaign Allowance and Space Technology Allowance has not been accepted. In order to incentivize the supporting employees in Space and Atomic Energy sector, the rate of Launch Campaign and Space Technology Allowance has been increased from Rs.7500 per annum to Rs.11250 per annum. Professional Update Allowance for non-gazetted employees of Department of Atomic Energy will also continue to be paid at the enhanced rate of Rs.11250 per annum.

ii. The 7th CPC had placed Antarctica Allowance, paid to the Scientists and other members undertaking the expedition to Antarctica under the Indian Antarctic programme, in the RH-Max Cell of the R&H Matrix. The rates of the RH-Max Cell recommended by the 7th CPC were less than the existing rates of Antarctica Allowance which is currently paid on per day basis. Considering the specific nature of these expeditions and to provide appropriate increase in rates, Government has decided to keep Antarctica Allowance out of the R&H Matrix and the allowance will continue to be paid on per day basis as per existing practice. The Rates of Antarctica Allowance will go up from Rs.1125 per day (Summers) and Rs.1688 per day (Winters) to Rs.1500 per day (Summers) and Rs.2000 per day (Winters).

Incidents of violent attacks on Railway employees in the course of performing their duties

Incidents of violent attacks on Railway employees in the course of performing their duties


No. II/34/2018-Part I
Dated: 19/09/2018
The Chairman,
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Incidents of violent attacks on Railway employees in the course of performing their duties-reg.

Of late, it is noticed that the Railway employees are becoming targets of physical attacks by the unruly people/antisocial elements. In this connection, NFIR cites the case of recent physical attack on Travelling Ticket Examiner of S.C. Railway (Secunderabad Division) by a group of people who are habituated of travelling unauthorizedly and threatening on duty staff. It has further been reported that three persons have attacked the Gate Keeper (Track Maintainer) at Level Crossing Gate on Northern Railway and chopped off his left arm on 17th September, 2018. Similar attacks on staff were also reported from different places and no adequate action has been taken by the concerned Law & Order Authorities to deter the miscreants.

The Railway Staff who perform duties in the field and at remote places are developing constant fear of criminal attacks on them by the miscreants. In order to maintain the morale of staff, it would be necessary to urge upon the concerned high level authorities who are accountable for maintaining Law & Order situation to take effective measures. So far as Level Crossing Gates are concerned, provision of CCTV cameras may be considered seriously to facilitate detecting the culprits for further action.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly see that concrete steps are taken to protect the Railway Staff working in the field and in the remote sections of the Railway system. Federation may please be kept advised of action being taken by the Railway Board early.
Yours faithfully
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
