Ref: Your No. dated 19.02.2018 (copy encl)
Vide letter under reference, clarification has been sought by the Railway as to whether the categories of employees placed above Level-5 in the pay Matrix are eligible for grant of Risk and Hardship Allowance payable to Track Maintainers in terms of RBE No.87/2017.
2. In this context, it is pointed out that the amount payable as Risk and Hardship Allowance as per the R3H2 matrix per accepted recommendation of the 7th CPC is 2700/- for Level-8 and below and 3400/- for Level-9 and above. However, it is only the category of “Track Maintainers” (that Consists of Track Maintainers- I, II, III and IV) who are eligible for payment of Risk and Hardship Allowance, in terms of RBE No.87/2017. As per their extant pay level, this allowance payable is therefore 2700/- p.m. Apart from Track Maintainers, no other category of Railway Employees has been included for payment of the aforesaid Risk and Hardship Allowance as per the accepted recommendations of the 7th CPC.
