Sub: Availability of option for fixation of pay on promotion from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, in context of RS(RP) Rules,2016.

Ref: NFIR’s letter No.1/2/Part IV dated 13.11.2018.

Please refer to NFIR’s letter quoted above requesting Board to give 90 days’ time for exercise of option for fixation of pay on DNI instead of ‘one month’ period as circulated vide Board’s letter RBE No. 142/2018 dated 20.09.2018 from the date of issue of these orders on the ground that these orders have not been circulated by the Zonal Railways and the Divisions to field units with the result that the staff are unable to exercise option in time.

With respect to above, it is stated that generai instruciions relating to revised pay structure which are applicable to all central government employees issued by Ministry of Finance (MoF) are adopted in Railways in mutatis mutandis manner. The letter under question was also uploaded on Board’s website on date itself and also circulated amongst all concerned including Zonal Railways/Production Units, Board’s branches, Members of the Staff Council, NFIR, AIRF and other, staff associations. Federation may appreciate that MoF’s circulars/orders already remains in circulation before adopted in Railways, as such Railway employees have even more time to go through such circulars/orders in comparison to other central government employees. Further, no Railway has made any reference bringing on record delayed circulation in this regard.

In view of the above, unilateral deviation from MoF’s stipulation is not feasible.
