No. E(P&A)ll-2017lRS-07

New Delhi, dated: 20.12.2017

The General Manager (P),

Southern Railway,

Chennai.

Sub:- Admissibility of pay/stipend and other allowances such as ALKM/TA
etc. to the Running Staff selected under GDCE for the post of JEs.

Ref: Railway letter No. P(S) 353/lV/PGT Dn. Court Cases dated 29-08-2016

+++++
Southern Railway had sought clarification whether running staff on
selection to a non-running post under GDCE and who had opted for drawing of
pay and allowances in accordance to paragraph 2(c)(i) of Board’s letter no.
PC-IV/2006/Mics./5 dt. 17.04.2006 would be eligible for payment of 30% pay
element or not. 
2. The issue has been considered in Board’s office and it is clarified that
a running staff on selection to a non-running post under GDCE and who has
opted for drawing of pay and allowances in accordance to paragraph 2(c)(i)
of Boards letter No. PC-IV/2006/Misc/S dated 17-04-2006 would not be
eligible for reckoning of 30% pay element for any purpose due to the
following reasons : 
(i) Such apprentices are no longer running staff as they discontinue
performing running duties. A decision has already been taken vide Board’s
letter no. E(P&A)]l-2004/RS-28 dt. 15.09.2006 for not reckoning of pay
element for pay fixation to the running staff who voluntarily opt for
selection against the vacancies under the GDCE scheme. therefore the pay
element cannot be considered for reckoning for any other benefit. 
(ii) Paragraph 2(c)(i) of Boards letter no. PC-lV/2006/Mics./5 dt.
17.04.2006 (RBE No. 48/2006) provides for admissibility of all the
allowances and privileges (including TA/DA and PLB) on the basis of their
substantive cadre pay of the post held before being sent on training as per
the provisions of relevant rules. However, pay element is not a part of
substantive pay as defined in Rule 1309 of the Indian Railway Establishment
Code Volume II. 
3. Further. it is clarified that the apprentices are no longer running
staff and they will therefore be eligible for TA/DA as per Rule1685 &
1686 of IREC-Vol.II/2005 admissible as in the case of other apprentices
selected from amongst serving Railway employees.
