DMRC Staff say their demand for Salary Restructuring not yet been met

DMRC Staff say their demand for Salary Restructuring not yet been met

New Delhi: The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation has hit rough waters with its employees resorting to protests once again. The protesting non-executive employees of the corporation have now begun a hunger strike as they claim their demands for salary restructuring are going unheard by the administration.

As many as 3,600 employees, mainly technicians, are taking turns to protest at Jantar Mantar and at the seven metro depots. They are not ruling out train services being affected as 32 of those on hunger strike have already been hospitalized. Members of the staff council are likely to meet the administration on Monday to reach a common consensus.

They demand that the salaries of technicians be revised from Rs 8,000 – 14,140 to Rs 10,170 – 18,500. For senior technicians, they have demanded a hike in pay-scale from Rs 10,170 – 18,500 to Rs 14,000 – 26,950 and for head technicians from Rs 14,000 – 26,950 to Rs 16,000 – 30,770.

According to General Secretary, DMRC Employees Union, Kuldeep Maan, the employees fear that once the Seventh Pay Commission is implemented, their problems with the corporation would be quashed. “We have been victims of DMRC’s exploitation since 2007. Our protest has been on for long now but nothing has happened. On November 3, we decided to extend the protest to Jantar Mantar and November 5 onwards employees began their hunger strike,” he said.

To register his protest for the cause Kishan went a step ahead and resigned from his membership of the employees’ council. “So far, 32 of the many employees on hunger strike have been hospitalised. If the administration does now blink an eye many more will be taken ill and then we won’t be responsible if metro operations are hit,” said another protesting member. The administration had called for a meeting once, but it bore no fruitful conclusions, he added.

Responding to the report, the DMRC said, “It is an internal matter of the organization and the Human Resource department has taken up the issues of these employees.”

Dear Sir,

Sub: Payment of Risk Allowance to the staff in the TRD Wing of Electrical Department on Indian Railways-Reg.
Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A) I-2008 SP-I/AD-3 dated 02/05/2013.
*********
The NFIR desires to bring to the notice of Railway Board that the staff working in TRD wing of Electrical Department are denied Risk Allowance even though these staff face continuous risk while perfoniing duties.
The TRD staff are engaged in the jobs listed vide annexure to Railway Board’s letter No. E(P&A)I-2008/SP-I/AD dated 02/05 /2013.

2. ln this connection, Federation desires to bring to the notice of the Railway Board following facts for appreciation of NFIR’s point of view:-
  • Though the TRD staff while working on the OHE, obtain Block and shut down the power carrying 2500 volt current duly earthing on both ends, but the power of same magnitude and intensity is available in the adjacent up/down line for the purpose of regular flow of rail traffic.
  • The high intensity current on the adjacent line causes severe adverse impact on the health of TRD staff due to inherent infection. This gives rise to various diseases as infection is being caused in the human body.
The seriousness can be assumed from the fact that if the amount of current in the human body crosses 40 mili-ampere, it can cause even deaths.

3. The NFIR therefore contends that the health hazards faced by the TRD Staff of Electrical Department in their day-to-day working are continuous and they are required to be paid Risk Allowance.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the case of TRD staff in all grades and accord approval for payment of Risk Allowance.

Federation may be kept advised of the action taken in the matter.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah).

Subject: – Counting of past service fix admissibility in old pension scheme, new pension scheme, pay protection and leave accumulation to All India Services officers: clarification regarding.
*******
I am directed to say that while introducing the New Pension Scheme from 01/01/2004, amendments to various existing rules including second proviso to Rule l of the All India Services (Death Cum Retirement Benefits) Rules, 1958 were made whereby these rules became inapplicable to those appointed to All India Service and posts from 01/01/2004. The pension of the member of All India Services appointed on or after 01/01/2004 is regulated by the New Defined Contribution Pension Scheme (known as the New Pension Scheme), notified by the Ministry of Finance (Department of Economic Affairs) vide their Notification No.5/7/2003-ECB2 PR dated 22/12/2003 now rechristened as National Pension System as per Section 8 of Pension Fund Regulatory Development Authority Act, 2013. The guidelines for New Pension Scheme in respect of All India Services was issued by this Department vide letter No.25014/14/2001-AIS(II) dated 08/09/2009 in terms of the instruction/guidelines notified by the Ministry of Finance.

2. Therefore, in view of the above new and changed position, this Department has received references from the State Governments and member of services for Clarification in regard to counting of past services for the purpose of pensionary benefits, pay protection and leave accumulation. The matter has been examined by this Department in consultation with the Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure) and Department of Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare and has decided as under: –
(i) The member of All India Services who had been an employee in pensionable establishment viz. Central/State Governments or autonomous bodies as on 31/12/2003 and appointed to All India Services on or after 01/01/2004 with proper permission shall be covered under the old non-contribution pension scheme in terms of Office Memorandum No. 28/30/2004-P&PW(B) dated 28/10/2009,which has been made applicable Mutatis-Mutandis to members of All India Services by this Department vide letter No. 25014/1/2013-AIS(II) dated 18/3/2013. The pay protection and leave accumulation arising out of previous service would be admissible as per relevant rules of respective All India Services (Pay) Rules and All India Services (Leave) Rules 1955.
(ii) Those under CPF etc will not be allowed entry into the old pension scheme on appointments from 01/01/2004
(iii) The member of All India Services who were appointed to government service in the central/state governments or autonomous bodies, whether in a pensionable or non-pensionable establishment, on or after 01/01/2004 before being appointed to All India Services shall be governed by the New Pension Scheme. The pay protection and leave accumulation arising out of their previous service would be admissible as per the relevant rules of the respective All India Services (Pay) Rules and All India Services (Leave) Rules, 1955.
(iv) The admissibility of counting of past services for the purpose of benefits as mentioned at point (i) and (iii) above shall be subject to continuous service and technical resignation.
3. The State Governments are competent to determine the past service rendered by the member of service for such benefits as mentioned above. The service rendered by a member of All India Services before his appointment to the service under the Central Government or a State Government will count as continuous service for the said benefits subject to the fulfilment of the specific conditions provided in the All India Services (Leave) Rules, 1955 and the respective All India Services (Pay) Rules. Approval of the Central Government is not necessary for counting the previous service for such benefits. In such cases the Government of the State on whose cadre the member of service is borne/the Accountant General concerned, will have to take necessary action in consultation with the Central Department or the State Government, if the officer had worked under the Central Government or another State Government, as the case may before joining the All India Services, to count such service as qualifying service for the aforesaid benefit. If any clarification is required or condonation of break in service is involved, a reference may be set to the Department of Personnel and Training in the case of members of the Indian Administrative Services, the Police Division of the Ministry of Home Affairs in the case of Indian Police Service and the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change in the case of members of Indian Forest Service.
