Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to Federation’s letter dated 20/12/2018 on the subject wherein a copy of South Central Railway’s letter dated 15/19-11-2018 was forwarded to the Railway Board wherein the Zonal Railway sought clarification on the following points:-
1. Subsequently, as per Railway Board’s letter No. PC.III/84/UPG/19 dated 25/06/1985, cadre restructuring was implemented w.e.f. 0ll0lll984. It is pertinent to note that Para 5.3 of the said Railway Board’s letter dated 25/06/1985 laid down that the vacancies existing on 01/01/1984 and those arisen on that date as a result of cadre restructuring should be filled (i) from the panels approved on or before 30/06/1985 and current on that date and (ii) balance in the manner indicated in Paras 5.1 & 5.2 of the said letter.
2. The Zonal Railway further admitted that the employees who were already given the benefit of fitment against the 50% direct recruitment quota vacancies of Asst. Draftsman vide panel dated 16/01/1984 were erroneously given the restructuring benefit w.e.f. 01/01/1984 though they were not part of any unused panel of ADMs as on 30/06/1985 as prescribed in restructuring orders dated 25/06/1985. From this, it is very clear that the serving Diploma Holder Tracers who were absorbed as Asst. Draftsman against 50% DR Quota vacancies on 20th January, 1984 in terms of Railway Board’s orders, their absorption against DR quota has to be reckoned for granting financial upgradation under MACPS as the entry Grade Pay of ADM/JE has been GP 42001- (6th CPC).
Federation feels disappointed to state that though a period of over four months has since passed, there is however no response from Railway Board. Further Federation desires to state that the PNM Subject 15/2015 though could not be discussed in the NFIR’s PNM meeting held on 25th 26th April, 2016,Railway Board however in the Action Taken Statement delivered during the PNM meeting, conveyed that the matter is being reviewed in the light of discussions held on 09/08/2018.
Federation has learnt that the Railway Board have since sent clarification to the General Manager (P), South Central Railway on this issue but however copy of the said communication has not been endorsed to the Federation.
NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to kindly expedite action for allowing MACP in the instant case.
