Railway Board,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub : Reduced payment of stipend to the Trainee Station Masters in Level-5 (PB1+GP 2800) on Zonal Railways-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No.PC-V/2016/PS/1 (Stipend) dated 02/02/2017 (RBE No.08/2017).

*********

Federation invites kind attention of Railway Board to the instructions vide RBE No.08/2017 dated 02/02/2017 wherein rates of stipend payable to various categories of Railway employees during their mandatory training period prior to joining the working post have been circulated (pursuant to the implementation of the recommendations of 7th CPC).

Complaints continued to be received by the NFIR from the Station Master category through our affiliated Unions that though the category of SM has been allotted GP 4200+PB-2/Level-6 at entry level, those SMs who have been undergoing induction training including those who completed training till now are being paid stipend at the rate of Rs.29200/- p.m. (vide S.N. 44 of Board’s orders dated 02/02/2017) while they are due to be paid stipend @Rs.35,400/- p.m. similar to the staff of other categories where recruitment is made in GP 4200+PB-2/Level-6. This is causing serious resentment and frustration among newly recruited SMs.

NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board to consider the valid grievance of staff and issue modified instructions to the Zonal Railways to pay stipend to trainee SMs @ Rs.35,400/- as against Rs. 29,200/-, duly endorsing copy to the Federation.

Yours faithfully
