Dear Sir,

Sub: Denial of payment of Breakdown Allowance to the staff working in GP 2000/Level 3 of 7th CPC - reg.

Ref: (i) Railway Board's letter No.E(P&A)II-2017/BDA-1 30-08-2017 (RBE No.106/2017)
(ii) NFIR's letter No.I/5(g)/Part V dated 11-04-2018
(iii) Railway Board's letter No.E(P&A)II-2017/BDA-1 dated 14-09-2018 (RBE No.138/2018)

Pursuant to NFIR's reference vide letter dated 11-04-2018 relating to admissibility of payment of Breakdown Allowance to the staff working in GP 2000/Level-3 of 7th CPC who were left erroneously in Board’s order dated 30th August,2017 (RBE No.106/2017), Railway Board vide letter dated 14-09-2018 (RBE No.138/2018) have issued clarification for grant of Breakdown Allowance to the Technicians Grade-III though drawing pay in higher pay level under MACPS at the rates prescribed for the post held by the employee. Federation however noticed that the said instructions are not in conformity with the Federation’s demand to grant Breakdown Allowance to the Staff working in GP 2000/Level-3 at the pay received in the same Grade Pay/Pay Level.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that the Breakdown Allowance is treated as Compensatory Allowance and is attached to the extra-ordinary duties performed by such staff. The Board's clarification dated 14-09-2018 limiting the payment of Breakdown Allowance to the post held by the staff i.e. substantive pay in GP 1900, is unjustified and needs to be corrected suitably to render justice to the staff of Technical Categories.

NFIR, therefore, urges the Railway Board to consider the above points and issue amendment to the clarification to letter dated 14-09-2018 soon duly endorsing copy to the Federation.
Yours faithfully
(Dr.M.Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
