Dear Sir,
Sub: Applicability of Rule 31 of Railway Service (Pension) Rules 1993 for counting of service period paid from contingencies for calculation of pension, gratuity on retirement - reg.

Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No: 27/2011.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. 2016/ E(LR)I/NM1-12 dated 14/12/2016.
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. II/35 Part XIII dated 19/12/2016.
(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)II/2014/ CL/RWF/6 PNM - NFIR dated 17/05/2017 .
(v) NFIR’s letter No. 11/35/2018 dated 09/06/2018 &.06/11/2018.
(vi) Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)II/2014 /RWF/CL/6 PNM-NFIR dated 21/12/ 2018.
(vii) PCPO / RWF’s letter No. RWF/ G0-26/566 dated 08th March, 2019 to Secretary (E), Railway Board.
(viii) Railway Board’s letter No E(NG)II/ 2017/ER/CL/4 dated 15/05/2019 addressed to GM(P) RWF.

Kind attention is invited to the Federation’s demand to consider applicability of Rule No. 31 of Railway Service (Pension) Rules 1993 for counting of service period paid from contingencies for calculation of retirement gratuity in favour of former casual labour who were paid wages for contingency and absorbed subsequently in Rail Wheel Factory, Yelahanka vide NFIR’s Agenda Item No. 27/2011. Federation takes note that though the Railway board vide letter dated 15/05/2019 issued half-baked clarification to RWF Authorities with reference to PCPO, RWF’s letter dated 08th March,2019 without mentioning NFIR PNM Agenda Item pending since the last about eight years since the year 2011.

In this connection, NFIR re-iterates that the Apex Court in its Judgement / Order in Civil Appeal No. 3938 of 2017 [ arising out SLP (C) No. 23723 of 2015 dated 24th March, 2017] gave following directions (in para 55) for compliance:-
  1. the casual worker after obtaining temporary status is entitled to reckon 50% of his services till he is regularized on a regular/temporary post for the purposes of calculation of Pension.
  2. the casual worker before obtaining the temporary status is also entitled to reckon 50% of casual service for purposes of pension.
  3. Those casual workers who are appointed to any post either substantively or in officiating or in temporary capacity are entiled to reckon the entire period from date of taking charge to such post as per Rule 20 of Rules, 1993.
Federation feels disappointed that the clarification dated 15/05/2019 is inadequate due to the fact that instructions covering above points have not been incorporated for taking action by all Zones/ PUs to settle similarly placed cases including those of RWF, Yelahanka.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider and issue modified instructions to the General Managers of Zones / PUs & RWF citing NFIR’s PNM meeting discussions.

A copy of the instructions may be endorsed to the Federation.
Yours faithfully,
(Dr.M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary

New Promotion Rules for Central Government Employees - Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACP)

Central Government accepted the new 7th pay commission promotion rules and implemented for all groups of Central Government employees

Originally adopted by the 5th Pay Commission in 1996 and subsequently by the sixth pay commission, the system for the guaranteed promotion has adjusted the 12 and 24 year requirements to 10, 20 and 30 years.

Also check: MACP FOR THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES - DOPT CONSOLIDATED GUIDELINES

If a worker is not promoted for a period of 10 years, he or she moves to the next tier of the pay hierarchy under the MACP rule.

Now the DoPT has now given a significant order in detail regarding the promised promotional structure.

The OM recommends that the 7th Pay Commission should continue to administer the MACP Scheme 10, 20 and 30 years earlier.

The employees move into the next level of the hierarchy in the new pay matrix. As recommended, all positions, including Group A posts, whether individually or not, will be able to benefit from the Scheme.

However, the services of the organized group "A" are not covered by the scheme. MACPS may proceed in this manner, except for representatives of Organized Group's' A' Programs, to extend to all workers up to HAG level.

The Government has considered and approved the recommendations of MACPS's Seventh Central Pay Commission. At the age of 10, 20 and 30 the MACPS will continue to be administered. The worker must transfer to the next pay level in the current pay matrix system directly under the program.

The specified Benchmark shall be' Very Good' for the granting of financial improvement under the MACP Scheme for all rates.

No increase in the pay level for junior employees would be admissible as a result of pay fixation under the MACP scheme, more than for seniors.

The Cabinet Secretary,
Rashtrapati Bhawan,
New Delhi - 110004

Dear Sir,

Sub: Provision for granting Special Casual Leave for the Woman employees (45 years of age and above) working in the Central Government Organizations - reg.

The Government of India is aware that with the increased efficiency levels among women in every walk of life, more importantly in the Government sector, a good number of female candidates has been joining services in various organizations of the Central Government in different capacities at all levels ranging from Group 'C' to Group 'A'. While many of them have been performing duties efficiently, their physiological condition changes when they reach certain age which is a natural phenomenon. Federation desires to bring to your kind notice that there is need to consider granting Special Casual Leave for the Women employees of 45 years age and above working in the Central Government services due to the reason that they face hormonal imbalances at the menopause stage which hampers the physical and mental health of women. Therefore provision for granting Special Casual Leave for those Woman employees of 45 years age and above including those who undergo Hysterectomy Operation needs to be considered.

Also check: 7th Pay Commission Leave Rules

NFIR, therefore, requests the Cabinet Secretary to kindly intervene and get the matter examined for making provision for granting Special Casual Leave to the Woman employees of Central Government services in the above mentioned situations.
