Federation invites kind attention of the Railway Board to NFIR’s PNM Agenda Item No. 29/2017 wherein demand has been raised for according approval to grant of 3rd MACP in GP 6600/- (PB-3) to those Nursing Personnel who have been awarded 1st and 2nd financial upgradation under ACP Scheme in the cadre hierarchy (5th CPC Pay Scales) upto 31st August 2008. The demand has been raised by the Federation based on the decision taken by the nodal Ministry i.e. the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare vide O.M. dated 09th September, 2016, copy of which has also been provided by the Federation to the Board vide its letter dated 12th September, 2016.
Incidentally, Federation desires to mention that the subject matter could not be discussed in the NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13th & 14th November, 2017 due to paucity of time, however, the issue has been discussed informally with the ED/PC-1 on 14th & 15th January, 2018 by the General Secretary, NFIR and it was requested that orders in this connection may be issued soon on the basis of the decision of the nodal Ministry vide O.M. dated 09th September, 2016. Federation also conveys that the Railway Ministry is part of the Government of India and it bound to implement the instructions issued by the nodal Ministry in so far as the staff of Para – Medical categories working on Indian Railways is concerned. Taking different view in the matter and again referring the subject to the nodal Ministry or the DoP&T will cause further delay, leading staff dissatisfaction.
While enclosing copies of PNM agenda and Ministry of Health & Family Welfare OM’s dated 90th September, 2016 and our letter dated 12/09/2016, NFIR expresses its disappointment over Railway Board’s negative approach and the same time urges your kind intervention.
