sub:- Restructuring of certain Group ‘C’ cadres – Promotion benefit to the staff against vacancies existed as on 01-11-2013
Ref: PNM/NFIR item No. 4/2014
Please connect PNM/NFIR item No. 4/2014 vide which the issue of grant of proforma fixation to the staff promoted against existing vacancies as on 01-11-2013 was raised. As decided in the last PNM meeting on 10th & 11th April-2015, the above issue was again examined and it is observed that due to the following reasons, granting of proforma fixation to the staff promoted against existing vacancies as on 01-11-2013 is not feasible:-
(i) Keeping in view in-ordinate delay (2 to 3 years) in implementation of last cadre restructuring owing to certain conditions that were introduced for the first time, and as some of the existing vacancies were also lying unfilled since August 1999 & January 2001, as a special case (one time dispensation), proforma fixation w.e.f. 01-11-2003 was allowed to the staff promoted against normal vacancies existed on 01-11-2013 and it was clearly mentioned in Board’s order dated 17-02-2006 that it is a special dispensation and must not be construed as a precedent for any other cases arising in future either out of restructuring or otherwise.
(ii) Presently there is no inordinate delay in implementation of cadre restructuring of Group ‘C’ staff. As per feedback received from Railways/Units, more than 96% cadre restructuring of Group ‘C’ staff has already been implemented on the Railways/Units.
(iii) There are no special mitigating circumstances in the current cadre restructuring of Group ‘C’ staff due to which granting of proforma fixation w.e.f. 01-11-2013 to the staff promoted against normal vacancies existed on 01-11-2013 can be considered.
