Dear Sir,

Sub: Need for revision of hourly rates of incentive bonus and incentive allowance in favour of staff of Workshops/Production Units under CRI pattern/GIS-reg.
**********

Pursuant to the decisions of the Government on the recommendations of the VII CPC, the Railway Board vide letter No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02/08/2016 (RBE No. 93/2016) has circulated "schedules for revised scales of pay''in respect of Railway employees to be given effect from 01/01/2006.

II. In this connection, NFIR desires to state that after implementation of 6th CPC grade pay/pay band, the Railway Board had in consultation with the Federations issued instructions vide letter No. 2008/M(W)814/38 dated 29/10/2009 (RBE No. 194/2009) revising hourly rates of incentive bonus under CRJ Pattern/GIS for staff in Workshops and Production Units and also PCO allowance. Upward revision of rates was also granted vide RBE No. 142/99 dated 21/06/1999 (i.e. after implementation of V CPC pay scales). A chart showing the revision of hourly rates granted by.the Railway Board is placed below:-

Note:
  • Incentive Bonus earnings under GIS pattern on the basis of V CPC pay structure was arrived at by multiplying minimum pay of pay scale X 1.3 times (in the year 1999).
  • Incentive Bonus earnings under GIS pattern on the basis of VI CPC was arrived at by just doubling the values & fixing it a 100% earning level (in the year 2009).
  • In case of Hourly rates earning under CRI pattern, the Hourly rate values of V CPC were just doubled and fixed as hourly rate earnings after implementation of VI CPC.
III. NFIR now wants the Railway Board to appreciate that similar upward revision of hourly rates of incentive bonus is needed to be granted as the revised pay matrices of VII CPC have been given effect from January 1,2016.

The SSEs of Indian Railways Workshops and Production Units are presently paid incentive allowance on VI CPC pay. This also needs to be revised upwardly duly taking into consideration the revised Pay Matrix allotted to them. NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to take action for revising the rates early as was done during the year 1999 and 2009. It is also relevant to take note of the fact that there is already heavy shortage of staff in all Railway Workshops and Production Units with increased activity resulting additional workload burden on the existing staff. This aspect be given due weightage for the purpose of hiking the hourly rates of incentive bonus, PCO allowance and incentive allowance to the staff as well SSEs.
Yours faithfully,
