    No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/Allowance/Part I
    Dated: 27/09/2017 

    The Secretary (E),
    Railway Board,
    New Delhi

    Dear Sir,

    Sub: Revision of rates of Over Time Allowance for Railway employees Implementation of 7th CPC recommendation-reg.

    NFIR invites Railway Board's attention to Chapter 8.17.97 of 7th CPC Report, extract of which is placed below:- 

    8.17.97:

    "Hence, while this Commission shares the sentiments of its predecessors that government offices need to increase productivity and efficiency, and recommends that OTA should be abolished (except for operational staff and industrial employees who are governed by statutory provisions), at the same time it is also recommended that in case the government decides to continue with OTA for those categories of staff for which it is not a statutory requirement, then the rates of OTA for such staff should be increased by 50 percent from their current levels”.

    The Railways being operational system wherein the staff are duty bound to work beyond rostered/statutory hours when ordered to do so. They are entitled for payment of OTA under statutory provisions. The present OTA rate should therefore be increased by 50% as recommended by 7th CPC.

    NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly increase the existing Over Time rates by 50% w.e.f. 01/01/2016. Railway Board's attention is also invited to Board's letter No. PC-V/2008/A/0/3 (OTA) dated 20/05/2011 on the subject matter. 

    Yours faithfully,

    Sd/-

    General Secretary
