Dear Sir,

With reference to above cited letter, it is stated that the crux of Board’s letter of even number dated 17.07.2012 was that employees retiring from Group “C” posts  with GP 1800/- would be automatically eligible for two sets of PRCP.   On the other hand, the crux of ‘Board’s letter No.E(W)2012/PS5-1/5 dated 05.08.2014 was that  employees who were never granted the status of Group ‘C’ and retired as Group “D”  cannot be extended two sets of supplements the former and brings out the position on that only those who retired as Group “D” staff in the same GP of Rs.1800/-   before upgradation of these posts.

2. Further, the issue for grant of 2 sets of PRCP to all those employees who retired in the G.P. of Rs. 1800/-, irrespective of clarification as Group “C” was raised in DC/JCM Meeting (Item No.18/2012 and PNM Forum”.  The demand was examined in consultation with Finance & Pay Commission Directorates and also at Board’s level. However, the same not found feasible of acceptance in view of financial and other implications.

Yours Faithfully

for Secretary/Railway Board
