Railway Board Recommendations of the High Power Committee to review the duty hours of running staff
Federation is for continuing the pay elements 30% and 55% of pay which are in vogue since the time of 4th CPC as far as running allowance is concerned without any dilution even when 7th CPC Pay Matrix levels are to be implemented
7th CPC refrain from the issue pertaining to payment of Running Allowance (Kilometerage Allowances and ALK). It feels that it is best left to the Railway Administration, since from time immemorial, the kilometerage entitlements/rates are decided through bi-lateral discussions between Railway Board and Federations.
NFIR requests 7th Pay Commission to leave the Pay Element and Running Allowance of Running Staff in Railways issue as the same has to be dealt by Railway Ministry through bilateral negotiations with Railway Federations
