(Attention: (i) Sh. Rajiv Ranjan Prasad, PCPO/NWRI
(ii) Sh. Sanjay Suri, PCPO/WRI

Sub: Clarification regarding irregular fixation of pay of Running Staff promoted on or after 01/01/2006.

Ref:
i) NFIR’s letter No. IV/RSAC/ Conf./Part IX dated 23/07/2018.
ii) Rajkot/ Jodhpur Division’s letter dated 12.01.2018/29.06.2018 respectively.
iii) Board’s letter No. PCVI/2017/ CPGRAMS/1 dated 17.08.2018 addressed to GM/WR regarding irregular pay fixation of running staff in Rajkot Division (Copy annexed).

This office is in receipt of NFIR’s letter dated 23/07/2018 (copy enclosed). wherein it has stated that there has been discrepancy in fixation of pay of Running Staff promoted on or after 01/01/2006 in Rajkot/ Jodhpur Division under Western Railway /North Western Railway respectively. In support of this, they have relied upon Rajkot/ Jodhpur Division’s letter dated 12.01.2018/29.06.2018 respectively (copy enclosed).

2. Prima facie observation of the concerned Division’s letter indicates there exists some confusion in the methodology of pay fixation of Running Staff promoted on or after 01/01/2006. As.the Railways are aware, the pay fixation of existing staff, already in service on the date of effect of RS(RP) Rules, 2008 viz. 01/01/2006, in the revised pay structure is governed by Rule 7 of above rules notified vide Gazette Notification No. GSR 643 (E) dated 04/09/2008 (RBE No.103/2008). For the above purpose, fitment tables were issued vide Board’s letter No. PCVI/2008/I/RSRP /1 dated 11/09/2008 (R.BE No. 108/2008) which are applicable to non­ running Staff. Since existing running Staff (already in service as on 01/01/2006) was in receipt of Dearness Allowance on Pay Element, separate fixation table were issued for fixation of their pay in revised pay structure in terms of Rule 7 of RS(RP) Rules. 2008 vide Board’s letter No. PCVI/2008/I/RSRP/1 dated 12/09/2008 (RBE No. 109/2008). As prescribed in Rule 7 of RS(RP) Rules, 2008, if fixation of pay as per Rule 7( 1)(A)(i) is short of minimum of applicable revised pay band (viz .Minimum of PB- 1 to PB-4 as applicable to the employee) or pay scale (applicable to HAG & higher grades), such minimum would be allowed , as laid down Rule 7(1)(ii). The provisions of Rule 7(1)(A)(ii) have already been taken care of while issuing fitment tables vide Board’s letter dated 11/09/2008 & 12/09/2008. The fitment tables are also applicable in the cases where an existing employee (already in service as on 01/01/2006 opts to have his pay fixation from a date later than 01/01 /2006, in terms of Rule 5 ,6 & 11 of RS(RP) Rules, 2008 as clarified vide Clarification No.3 of Board’s letter No. PCVI/2008/I/ RSRP/ dated 25/09/2008 (RBE No. 132/2008).

3. There is no prescribed minimum, other than minimum of the applicable pay band in the case of those promoted on or after 01/01/2006, where an employee is fixed in any of the applicable pay bands. The minimum pay in pay band as prescribed in First Schedule Part A, Section II of RS(RP) Rules, 2008 and corresponding stipulation in first schedules annexed with Board’s letter dated 11/09/2008 (RBE No. 108/2008) is applicable only for direct recruits appointed on or after 01/01/2006 belonging to Running as well as non running categories. The position has been clarified in detail in Board’s letter No. PCVI/2010/I/ RSRP/1 dated 17/02/2010 (RBE No. 28/2010). As such once the pay of any existing employee (already in service as on 01/01/2006) is fixed in revised pay structure in the applicable pay band as per the provisions of Rule 7 or 11 and he is subsequently promoted to a post in same or other pay band, his fixation has tp be made as per Rule 13 Even at this stage, the minimum of applicable pay band (PB-1 to PB-4) or scale (HAG or above) as applicable is to be ensured.

4. In view of this. it is requested that the Rajkot / Jodhpur Division’s letter dated 12-01-2018/ 29-06-2018 respectively be examined in light of relevant instructions and the necessary corrective action taken and thereafter, the position be advised to this office. Further if any specific point of doubt arises, the same may be referred to this office for clarification along with the views of PFA of the Railways.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Sanction for holding an elective office under Rule 15(1)(c) CCS(Conduct) Rules, 1964 - reg.

The undersigned is directed to say that as per Rule 15 (1) (c) of the CCS (Conduct) Rules, 1964, no Government servant shall except with the previous sanction of the Government, hold an elective office, or canvass for a candidate or candidates for an elective office, in any body, whether incorporated or not. DoPT's O.M. No. 110 13/9/93-Estt.(A) dated 22.04. 1994 had also stipulated that no Government servant should be allowed to hold elective office in any sports association/federation for a term of more than 4 years, or for one term whichever is less. Further, according to Department of Personnel & Training's OM No. 110 13/11/2007-Estt (A) dated the 13th November, 2007, the entire time of the Government servant should be available to the Government and that no activities unconnected with his or her official duties should be allowed to interfere with the efficient discharge of such duties. All Ministries were requested to ensure that the participation of the Government servants in the activities of the cooperative societies conform to the above provisions and does not interfere with the discharge of their official duties.

2. Instances have come to notice where Government servants continue to hold elective offices in various capacities for unduly long periods. In some cases, where bye-laws of these bodies place restrictions on the number of consecutive terms a person may hold an office, Government servants are reported to have either got themselves re-elected after a gap or have got a family member/ close relative elected as a surrogate in order to keep control of such bodies. In such cases, Government servants may not be bestowing adequate attention upon their official duties and, as a result, an apprehension may arise that such Government servants also develop vested interests, particularly if the body is involved in commercial activities, directly or indirectly.

Also check: Rule 18 of the CCS Conduct Rules, 1964- regarding standard forms for intimation/ permission under the rules and expenditure incurred on repairs or minor construction work in respect of immovable property

3. The policy on fixing an upper limit of the number of years for which Government servants can hold elective office in any body in their entire career has been reviewed and it has been decided that a Government servant may be allowed to hold elective office in any body, whether incorporated or not, period of two terms or for a period of 4 years, whichever is earlier, for which prior sanction would be required when a Government servant contests an election in such body, as per existing rules.

4. It is, therefore, necessary for the Competent Authority to keep in mind all the relevant factors while granting permission under Rule 15(1)(c) of CCS(Conduct) Rules, 1964. It may also be necessary that cases of such sanctions are reviewed from time to time and permissions earlier granted revoked where Government servants have been holding office in any body, whether incorporated or not, for more than four years or in cases there are charges of corruption, adverse audit paras etc. In such cases, the Government servant concerned may be directed to resign from his office in such body immediately. He will cease to discharge any function from the date such direction is conveyed to him, irrespective of the fact whether his resignation from the body is accepted or not. This action may be taken immediately in those cases where information is already available with the Ministries and Departments. In addition, all the Ministries and Departments are also requested to obtain information from their employees in the proforma attached to this Office Memorandum for reviewing the position as well as while considering the request for sanction under Rule 15(1)(c) of CCS(Conduct) Rules, 1964 in future.

5. This O.M. issues in supersession of DoPT's 110 13/9/93-Estt.(A) dated 22.04.1994.

6. In so far as the employees of Indian Audit and Accounts Departments are concerned, this O.M. issues after consultation with Comptroller & Auditor General of India.

7. All Ministries/ Departments/ Offices are requested to bring the above instructions to the notice of all administrative authorities under their control.

8. Hindi version will follow.
