Dear Sir,
Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to Railwaymen
Ref.: Meeting with the AM(Staff), Railway Board held on 04.08.2017
Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 

2016-17 to Railwaymen


Please refer to our discussion held in the chamber of AM(Staff), Railway Board, on the above subject matter on 4th August, 2017. All India Railwaymen's Federation(AIRF) has already explained in detail its viewpoint in respect of calculation formula for payment of PLB to Railwaymen.

You may recall that, PLB has been an outcome of the bilateral agreement between Ministry of Railways and Staff Side Federations, which was arrived at on 22.11.1979. The formula for calculation of PLB, that was formulated as a result of above-mentioned agreement, is sacrosanct, on the basis of which payment of PLB is being made to entitled railway employees every year till last financial year.

AIRF is totally against any deviation in the well settled formula devised to calculate PLB payable to railway employees under the said agreement.

It is, therefore, urged that, payment of PLB for financial year 2016-17 should be made on the basis of established formula as mentioned above and there should not be any effort to make any amendment in the same as also number of days, calculated last year for payment of PLB, should not be reduced, else this will lead to unwarranted impairment in industrial peace.

No. I/10/Part IV
Dated 08/09/2017.
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Productivity Linked Bonus for the financial year 2016-17 to be paid in the current year 2017
Ref: Railway Board's letter No. E(P&A)II-2017/PLB-3 dated 02/08/2017.

Kind attention of Railway Board is invited to the discussions held on 4th August, 2017 in the Chamber of Additional Member (Staff), wherein the Federation has explained the need to acord approval for payment if Productivity Linked Bonus equivalent to not less than 78 days wages as was done in the previous years.

NFIR again places the facts as below for immediate action for sanction:
  • The output given by Railway employees has been very much on high side particularly in the context of non-filling of over 2lakh vacancies and additional burden borne by the existing staff since the last two years.
  • Capital input should not be taken into consideration as the utilization of the said capital is not in the hands of workers.
  • During the previous six years, the PL Bonus was paid to the Railway employees equivalent to 78 days wages, therefore any reduction in number of days would cause serious resentment in view of the fact that Rail Workforce has been contributing for productivity inspite of difficult working conditions and heavy shortage of staff due to non-filling of vacancies and non-creation of new posts for new assets built.
  • In fact, the Railway Ministry should consider motivating the staff by granting more number of days wages than previous year at this juncture.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to kindly take action for sanctioning the P.L. Bonus equivalent to not less than 78 days wages. It is also requested that payment may be arranged before commencement of Dussehra Pooja Holidays.

Federation may be kept apprised of the action taken in the matter.
Yours faithfully

Implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission - payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum


7th CPC - Payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum

No. III/DR/2/Part IV
Dated : 05/09/2017
The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Implementation of recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission - payment of Dress Allowance to Railway employees at Rs.10000/- per annum - reg.

Federation invites kind attention of Railway Board to para 8.16.14 of the recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission, according to which, the Track Maintainers, Running Staff Car Drivers, Points Man, Technicians in Workshops etc., on Indian Railways who are supplied uniform and are required to wear dress regularly have been recommended to be paid Rs. 5000/- per year as Dress Allowance (including shoes).
Vide foot note to the above recommendation, the 7th CPC has also recommended that the
Ministries/Departments may take a decision on "whether the rates should be Rs. 5000/- per year or Rs. 10,000/- per year". This recommendation has been accepted by the Government.

In this connection, NFIR points out that the Dress Allowance amount of Rs.5000/- per annum is very much inadequate to take care of the annual requirement of the staff in Railways, particularly due to the reason that staff of Railway categories' are required to wear the uniform regularly while on duty as per extant rules.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider payment of Dress Allowance at Rs.10,000/- per annum to the Track Maintainers, Running Staff, Ticket Checking Staff, Pointsmen, Technicians etc., and accordingly issue instructions to GMs etc.,

A copy of the instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.
Yours faithfully,
S/d,
