NFIR - Denial of LC Gate Allowance to the Gate Keepers/ Gatemen of Operating in Railways

NFIR - Denial of LC Gate Allowance to the Gate Keepers/ Gatemen of Operating in Railways

NFIR

Dated: 22/08/2019
No.1/5(g)/2019
The Secretary (E)
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Denial of LC Gate Allowance to the Gate Keepers / Gatemen of Operating in Railways - reg.

Ref: NFIR's letter No.I/5(g)/Pt.VI dated 04/06/2018 & 17/08/2018 to the Railway Board.

NFIR once again invites the kind attention of Railway Board to the Federation's letters dated 04/06/2019 & 17/08/2018, urging upon the Railway Board to grant LC Gate Allowance to the Operating Department Gate Keeper / Gatemen on par with those Gate Keepers of Civil Engineering Department' It is however said to mention that neither orders issued to GMs for payment of LC Gate Allowance to the Operating Department Gate Keeper / Gatemen nor reply sent to the Federation on the subject matter.

It needs to be appreciated that pursuant to the acceptance of 7th CPC recommendation, the Railway Board issued orders vide RBE No.87/2017 dated 10/08/2017 and RBE No.110/2017 dated 30/08/2017, granting LC Gate Allowance to the Civil Engineering Department Gate Keepers. These instructions should have been applied to the Operating Department Gate Keepers also automatically, Discriminating Operating Department Gate Keepers in respect of LC Gate Allowance is totally unjustified as the Gate Keepers of Operating Department have been performing similar nature of duties, being performed by Civil Engineering Gate Keepers.

The Operating Department Gate Keepers are extremely disappointed over non-payment of LC Gate Allowance to them, while similarly placed Gate Keeper of Civil Engineering Department are paid the same w.e.f. 1st July 2017.

The Railway Board has constituted EDs Committee to consider the categories which are to be recommended for payment of risk and hardship allowance. NFIR had already given detailed proposal to the EDs Committee, justify for bringing various categories of staff under the ambit of risk and hardship matrix for payment of risk and hardship allowance. However the case for payment of LC Gate Allowance of Operating Department need not be linked to the EDs Committee as this case is different to that of risk and hardship allowance, therefore this crucial point be considered for allowing payment of LC gate allowance to the operating department gate keepers at par with Civil Engineering Department.

NFIR therefore once again urges upon the Railway Board to kindly expedite action for granting LC Gate Allowance to the Gate Keepers of Operating Department w.e.f. 1st July 2017. Federation may kindly be replied of action being taken on the subject early.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr M.Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
