GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
RAIL BHAVAN, NEW DELHI-110001
DO No. PC-VII/2018/RSRP/1
New Delhi, dated 10/01/2019
I would like to draw your attention to Board’s letter dated 17.12.2018 (RBE No. 197/2018 – copy enclosed) adopting Ministry of Finance’s (MoF) OM dated 12.12.2018 wherein another opportunity has been afforded to employees to re-exercise the option to switching over to 7th CPC pay structure within three months from the date of issue of the orders.
2. It may be appreciated that the orders have been issued after prolonged pursuance with MoF including from the staff side, in various forums. These orders have been circulated amongst all Railways/Units and uploaded on Board’s website, it is however, important to ensure that all Railway employees who would be benefited by such re-exercise of option are aware of the issue of these orders and are given guidance/assistance in revising their option (wherever beneficial) in time. This is especially important for those working in remote locations or who are under training/leave. Kindly therefore ensure that all affected employees are covered in the next few weeks, if necessary by organising special drives/camps for the purpose.
3. I would request for a confirmation from you by the end of February, 2019 that all eligible employees have been apprised and guided regarding re-exercise of their option and that there are none left over.
Encl. As above
