Denial of option for 7th CPC Pay Fixation i.r.o. Assistant Loco Pilot: NFIR writes to Railway Board
National Federation of Indian Railwaymen
No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC (Imp)/2016/R.B./Part I
Dated: 17/05/2017
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi
Dear Sir,

Sub: Denial of option for pay fixation in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix to the staff inducted from the post of Diesel/Electric Loco Technician to the post of Assistant Loco Pilot against 50% quota vacancies-review requested.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2017/R-U/18 dated 01/05/2017.
With reference to the reply of Railway Board vide letter cited above, the Federation conveys as follows:-
  • It may be appreciated that because of staff representations on account of negative response of lower level administration, NFIR has chosen to reach Railway Board. The reply of Board to the Federation may not resolve the staff grievance unless and until Board sends NFIR’s letter copy to GMs etc., together with its reply copy sent to Federation also.
  • For proper appreciation, Federation encloses copy of Sr. DFM/GTL (S.C. Railway) reply to DPO/GTL (A/IG/7PCSRs/Certification dated 07/03/2017) together with copy of DRM/P/GTL O.O. No. 502/Loco-Rng/2016 dated 09/05/2016. From these papers, it could be noticed that option for pay fixation has been denied.


NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions to GMs etc., on the subject, duly enclosing copy of Federation’s letter and Board’s reply thereon to mitigate the problems and ensure proper implementation in order to avoid staff grievances on such matters.
Encl: As above
Yours faithfully,
General Secretary
