Sub: Implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC – Fitment Factor and pay Fixation for Running Staff-reg.
The Railway Board is aware that the Union Cabinet has decided on 29th June 2016 for implementation of revised Pay Matrices of the 7th Central Pay Commission w.e.f. 01/01/2016 duly applying 2.57 multiplier factor. The notification, in this regard, is expected from the Ministry of Finance in due course.
In this connection, the NFIR invites Railway Board’s attention to letter No. PC-VI/2008/I/RSRP/1 dated 12/09/2008 relating to Pay Fixation tables for Running Staff which were given effect from 01/01/2006 and wherein the Fitment Factor was 2.118 for Running Staff (in view of pay element) instead of 1.86. Considering the 30% pay element of Running Stuff which is needed to be taken for arriving at multiplier factor, the Federation is of the view that the Fitment Factor for Pay Fixation of Running Staff in the 7th CPC Pay Matrix shall be “3” instead of “2.57”.
NFIR, therefore, urges upon the Railway Board to take the above points into consideration for the purpose of determining the Fitment Factor as “3” in the case of Running Staff for granting 7th CPC Pay Fixation w.e.f. 01/01/2016.
