Sub: Important subjects discussed with Railway Board (AM/Staff) this date (20th June 2017)-reg.
(i) MACPS 'Very Good' Benchmarking should be scrapped:
After discussion, it was agreed to send a cogent communication about the Railway employees' working system for exempting Railways from the revised 'Very Good' benchmarking. In this context, NFIR's letter No. IV/NFIR/7 CPC (Imp)/2016/DoP&T dated 23/08/2016 addressed to Cabinet Secretary and letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 09/01/2017 addressed to Railway Board may be connected.
(ii) 7th CPC Pay Matrices and Option for Pay Fixation for those who were granted increment on 1st July or those promoted in between 01/01/2016 and the date of notification:
The Railway Board have clarified that instructions already exist for granting option. NFIR, however, pointed out that on several Zones, the Option opportunity has been denied as the Zonal Railways as well as Divisions have not understood the provisions contained in Board's instructions and demanded that illustrations be issued by the Railway Board through clarificatory instructions.
After discussion it was agreed to.
