Sub: – Revised methodology for fixing the pay of Running Staff category in 7th CPC scales.

Reference is invited to Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 notified vide G.S.R. No. 746 (E) dated 28.07.2016, forwarded with Railway Board Endorsement No. PCVIV2016/RSRP/l dated 28.07.2016 (RBE No. 90/2016) and Railway Board’s Letter dated PC-Vl[/2016/RSRP/2 dated 02.08.2016 (RBE No. 93/2016) detailing the methodology for fixation of pay in the revised pay structure in respect of existing Running Staff as on 01.01.2016.

2. It was observed that the pay fixed in 7th CPC pay structure as per the methodology laid down in Board’s letter dated 02.08.2016 is coming out to be less than 14.29% increase of pay prescribed by 7th CPC, in certain cases of Running Staff.

Illustrations in this regard are enclosed as Annexure
