NFIR vide its letter dated 16/10/2013 had brought to the notice of Railway Board a case of misinterpretation of instructions issued by the Railway Board on the subject of grant of financial upgradation under MACPS and treatment of employees selected under LDCE/GDCE issued under Railway Board’s letter dated 12/09/2012. Federations is disappointed to note that clarificatory instructions on the lines of first para of Board’s letter dated 12/09/2012 stating that “the employees inducted in the relevant grade through LDCE/GDCE has to be treated as direct appointee for the purpose of granting financial upgradation under MACPS‘, have not been issued so far. As a result cases have been accumulating Zones/PUs and staff continues to suffer badly on many zones. Federation has been given to understand that no clarification has been issued by the Railway Board on the the query raised by GM(E)/W. Railway vide letter no.EP/839/0/Vol.V dated 30/09/2013.
Federation once again urges upon the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions to to all Zones & Production Units to mitigate the hardships faced by the staff. NFIR may be kept advised of the action taken.
