Sub: Upgradation of posts in the Railways recommended by 7th Central Pay Commission clearance of DoP&T reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s file No. PC-VII/2016/RSRP/2 – RBE No. 93/2016 dated 02/08/20 16 to GMs etc.

The recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission for upgradation of posts for the categories of Railway employees have been referred to Department of Personnel &  Training by the Ministry of Finance for taking a comprehensive view in the matter.

The categories along with details are given below:-

Name of Posts Para No. of 
Report of 7th CPC
Grade Pay
Grade Pay recommended 
by 7th CPC
1 Senior Section Office (Accounts)/Senior Travelling Inspector (Accounts)/Senior Inspector (Store Accounts) 11.40.53 4800 5400 (PB-2)
2 Chemical & MetallurgicalAssistant 11.40.124 4200 4600
3 Chemical & Metallurgical Superintendent 11.40.124 4600 4800
4 Assistant Chemist and Metallurgist 11.40.124 4800 5400 (PB-2)

In view of valid justification and recommendation given by 7th CPC for granting upgradation to higher Grade Pay in the case of above categories, the NFIR requests the Railway Board to kindly approach DoP&T to give clearance for implementation.

NFIR also conveys that there is apprehension among the staff that the approach of Railway Board is lukewarm, and not positive, consequently, the DoP&T is delaying its decision to convey approval while the 7th CPC similar recommendations for upgradation of posts in other ministries are being cleared.  NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board (MS & FC) to kindly impress upon the DoP&T to accept 7th CPC recommendation for upgradation of above mentioned posts early.

Yours faithfully,


General Secretary
