Subject: Clarification regarding admissibility of flexi-fare in Shatabdi/Rajdhani/Duronto trains while availing LTC.

As per Railway Board’s Circular No. 46 of 2016 dated 07.09.2016, Ministry of Railways have introduced a flexi-fare system in Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains, where the base fares will increase by 10% with every 10% of berths sold subject to a prescribed ceiling limit. In this regard, this Department is in receipt of references from various segments seeking clarification on the issue of admissibility of flexi-fare while booking the tickets of these trains for the purpose of LTC.

2. The matter has been examined in consultation with Department of Expenditure, Ministry of Finance and it has been decided that flexi fare (dynamic fare) applicable in Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains shall be admissible for the journey(s) performed by these trains on LTC. This dynamic fare component shall not be admissible in cases where a non entitled Government servant travels by air and claims reimbursement for the entitled class of Rajdhani/Shatabdi/Duronto trains. Such Government servants will get reimbursement of fare after deducting the dynamic fare component.

3. The above decision shall be applicable retrospectively with effect from 9 thSeptember, 2016, i.e. the date from which flexi-fare system was introduced by Railways.

4. Hindi version will follow.

7th Pay Commission: Committee on HRA, other allowances to submit its final report next week

 New Delhi: A high-level committee headed by finance secretary Ashok Lavasa is likely to submit its final report on HRA and ther allowances to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley next week.

The final recommendations on allowances will benefit over 47 lakh central government employees and 53 lakh pensioners.

The allowance committee is likely to take 4-5 days more to submit its final report to the government, as per sources familiar with the matter.

The committee was earlier expected to submit its report to the government this week.

The committee, which was asked to examine the 7th Pay Commission recommendation for abolition of 53 allowances out of a total of 196 and subsuming another 36 into larger existing ones had held a conclusive meeting on April 6.

The committee, at its previous meeting on March 28, had sought comments from the ministries of defence, railways and posts on treatment of 14 allowances. These allowances include accidental allowance, outstation detention allowance, trip allowance, and ghat allowance.

The Lavasa Committee was constituted in June last year after the government implemented the recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission.

The 7th Pay Commission had earlier proposed the rate of House Rent Allowance (HRA) at 24 percent, 16 percent and 8 percent of the Basic Pay for Class X, Y and Z cities respectively.

The Commission had also recommended that the rate of HRA will be revised to 27 percent, 18 percent and 9 percent when DA crosses 50 percent, and further revised to 30 percent, 20 percent and 10 percent when DA crosses 100 percent.

The Pay Commission had recommended abolition of or subsuming of allowances like acting, assisting cashier, cycle, condiment, flying squad, haircutting, rajbhasha, rajdhani, robe, shoe, shorthand, soap, spectacle, uniform, vigilance and washing.

Out of a total of 196 allowances, it had recommended abolition of 53 and subsuming of another 36 into larger existing ones.

Subject : Promotion and postings in Postal Services Group ‘B’ cadre. 

Ref.        : Dte Memo No. 9-14/2016-SPG dated 09-12-2016

Respected Madam,

          I would like to invite your kind attention to this Association’s letter of even number dated 7/1/2017 whereby it was requested to hold the supplementary DPC for the year 2016-17. As per Directorate Memo No. 9-14/2016-SPG dated 09-12-2016, 105 Inspector Line Officers promoted on regular basis in PS Gr. B cadre, but few of them have said to be declined the promotion and their declination letters have already be sent by their circles to Directorate.

It is also bring to your kind notice that 5 officers against whom punishment is current are selected in DPC (para 5 of memo dated 9-12-2016), but out of these, punishment of 3 officers is found current up to 2018, and therefore these officers will not get promotion till expiry of punishment period. The promotion against these 3 officers may be treated as vacancy for supplementary DPC.  

It is therefore requested to your kind honour to look into the matter personally and cause to issue necessary instructions to SPG Division to release the list of officers who declined the PS Gr. B promotion and arrange to conduct supplementary DPC at the earliest.  

                                                                                Yours sincerely,

(Vilas Ingale)
General Secretary
