Reference above, it is stated that, contention of the Railway Board, that, Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II-98/BDA-1 dated 25.09.1999 is superseded by their letter No.E(P&A)-2007/FE-4/3 dated 25.09.2009, is not correct, therefore, not acceptable to us. In this connection, we quote below para 2 of Railway Board’s letter dated 25.09.1999, which reads as under:-

“All other non-gazetted staff of all departments who are called out in connection with accidents/breakdowns, including the Supervisory staff who are not eligible for Breakdown Allowance, shall be allowed the concessions enumerated in Clauses (iii), (iv) & (v) of Sub-Rule (1) above”.

The Secretary(E),

Railway Board,

New Delhi

Dear Sir,

 

Sub: Payment of BDA to Mechanical Supervisors(C&W), Mechanical Department – Item No.18/2012 of PNM/AIRF 

 Ref.: Railway Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II-2012/FE-4/2 dated 20.10.2015  

Reference above, it is stated that, contention of the Railway Board, that, Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II-98/BDA-1 dated 25.09.1999 is superseded by their letter No.E(P&A)-2007/FE-4/3 dated 25.09.2009, is not correct, therefore, not acceptable to us. In this connection, we quote below para 2 of Railway Board’s letter dated 25.09.1999, which reads as under:-

“All other non-gazetted staff of all departments who are called out in connection with accidents/breakdowns, including the Supervisory staff who are not eligible for Breakdown Allowance, shall be allowed the concessions enumerated in Clauses (iii), (iv) & (v) of Sub-Rule (1) above”.

According to said para, all the Supervisors working in Breakdown duty not as in-charge but as Supporting Staff to in-charge, are exempted from “Supervisory” classification and are entitled for Breakdown Allowance.

Reference made by South Central Railway Administration, vide their letter No.P(R) 64/VI/Pilot dated 10.02.2010, also sought clarification on these lines, therefore, the matter should be re-examined, and necessary clarification be issued to South Central Railway administration accordingly with a copy to other Zonal Railways. 

An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.
