Ref: Item no.1/2014 ofPNM.

sir,

In terms of rule 13 of Railway Services (Revised pay) Rules, 2008, fixation of pay with one additional increment is admissiblein the situations of promotion from one Grade pay of another. Priorto implementation of above rules, fixation of pay on appointment from one post to another was governed by Rule 1313 (FR22)(i)(a)(1) R-II (Still in force) which provides for fixation of pay involving additional increment in the situations of appointment/promotion as per the provisions of Recruitment Rules in the situation involving assumption of duties and responsibilities of greater importance. Further, in terms of Rule 1313 (FR22) (III) R-II appointment in identical payscale is not to be deemed as a case of assumption of duties and responsibilities of greater importance.


2. Conseqent upon implementation of recommendations of 6th CPC there were various situations of appointment to identical Grade pay in the normal promotional hierarchy of the employee and such posts could not be merged (in terms of recommendations of 6th CPC envisaging merger of various scales) and the posts continued to be feeder and promotional posts though in same Grade Pay. There was marked assumption of duties and responsibilities of greater importance. Such cases were examined with Ministry of Finance and DOP&t and consequently, as agreed, promotional benefit was extended to certain categories vide Board's letter No.PC-VI/2011/IC/1 dated 12-09-2013 (copy enclosed)

3. Now there are demands from the Federations for grant of benefit to certainother situations viz;
