The Secretary (E),
Sub: Denial of Leave Salary duly reckoning 30% of 7th CPC pay for Running Staff – reg.
The extant instructions provide that the Running Staff are entitled for payment of Leave Salary duly reckoning 30% of pay. It has, however, been represented by our affiliates as well staff that on many Zonal Railways 30% of 7th CPC pay is not being reckoned for the purpose of payment of Leave Salary to the Running Staff. When pointed out, the Zonal Railways stated that Board’s clarification is awaited.
In this connection, NFIR desires to state that Leave Salary is not part of Allowances, therefore, 30% of 7th CPC pay needs to be added to the Basic Pay for the purpose of payment of Leave Salary to the Running Staff. In view of confusion prevailing on certain Zonal Railways, the Railway Board may consider issuing suitable clarification for reckoning 30% of 7th CPC pay for the purpose of payment of Leave Salary.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue clarificatory instructions as suggested above, duly endorsing copy thereof to the Federation, at the earliest.
