Dated:10/08/2017

The Secretary (E), Railway Board, New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Anomaly in Pay Matrix levels of 7th CPC.

****
NFIR brings to the kind notice of Railway Board the anomaly arisen due to
non-grant of 3% of pay towards annual increment, pursuant to implementation
of 7th CPC pay matrix levels as explained below:-
(a) Clause (c) of terms of reference of the National Anomaly Committee says
that the Official Side and Staff Side are of the opinion that any
recommendation is in contravention of the principle or the policy
enunciated by the 7th CPC itself without the commission assigning any
reason, constitutes an anomaly.
(b) The recommendations of 7th CPC regarding Annual Increment are as
follows:
(i) 7th CPC Report —Highlights of recommendations-
Read also :  7th CPC Pay Fixation Example 5 for Option from date of promotion i.ro Capt subsequently promoted to Maj: PCDA(O)
Annual Increment- The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3%.
(ii) 7th CPC Report Forward:-
Para 1.19- The prevailing rate of increment is considered satisfactory and
has been retained.
(iii) 7th CPC Report —Chapter 4.1-Principles of pay determination –

Para-4.1.17 —The various stages within a pay level moves upwards at the
rate of 3% per annum. 

(iv) 7th CPC Report -Chapter -5.1 —Pay structure (Civilian employees)
Para 5.1.38-Annual Increment.
“The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3%”  Para 5.1.21-The
vertical range of each level denotes pay progress within that level. That
indicates steps of annual financial progression of 3% within each level.
However, contrary to the above principle laid down by 7th CPC, the actual
increment rate in the following pay level of the pay matrix are less than
3% as illustrated in the following table.

4 11 34300 35329 35300 (Cell 12) 29 2.91
5 10 38100 39243 39200 (Cell 11) 43 2.88
6 9 44900 46247 46200 (Cell 10) 47 2.89
7 13 64100 66023 66000 (Cell 14) 23 2.96
8 9 60400 62212 62200 (Cell 10) 12 2.98
9 18 87700 90331 90300 31 2.96
(d) From the above table it can be concluded that: 

1. The recommendations of 7th CPC regarding increment rate is in
contravention of the principle or policy enunciated by 7th CPC, hence it
constitutes an anomaly .

2. In many stages even though the increment rate shown is 3%, it is rounded
off to next below amount causing financial loss to the employees.
3. In the 6th CPC, while calculating increment, if the last digit as one or
above, it used to be rounded off to next 10. So in this pay matrix, if the
amount is 10 and above, it should be rounded off to next 100.
NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to take necessary action for
rectification of anomaly so as to ensure that the increment @ 3% of pay is
granted to employees in whose cases where the actual amount is less than
3%.
