Benefits duly reckoning 55% to 7th CPC Pay Matrix to Running Staff – NFIR
Non-payment of retirement benefits to the Running Staff retired on or after 01/01/2016-reg.
The Member Staff,
The Financial Commissioner (Railways),
Sub: Non-payment of retirement benefits to the Running Staff retired on or after 01.01.2016-reg.
Complaints are being received quite frequently from the Zonal Railways that the Running Staff retired on or after 01/01/2016 have not yet been paid pensionary dues duly adding 55% to their 7th CPC Pay Matrix. It is further learnt that due to IPAS problems, almost on all the Zonal Railways, revised pensionary benefits have not been paid and the Administration has also not taken initiatives to solve the technical problem in co-ordination with the CRIS.
NFIR requests kind intervention in the matter so as to see that the retired Running Staff (from 01/01/2016 onwards) are paid retiral benefits duly reckoning 55% of pay as part of 7th CPC pay. Incidentally, Federation also conveys that all those retired Running Staff are entitled for pension arrears on revision of their present pension with the 55% addition of pay element.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Board (MS & FC) to take immediate action in resolving this issue in co-ordination with CRIS.
Action taken in the matter may kindly be advised to the Federation in due course.
