Sub : Stepping up of pay of Loco Inspectors appointed prior to 01.01.2006 at par with their junior appointed after 01.01.2006 and drawing more pay than the seniors.

The issue of allowing stepping up of pay to senior Loco Inspectors appointed prior to 01.01.2006 at par with their junior appointed after 01.01.2006 and drawing more pay than the seniors has been under consideration for quite some time pursuant to dismissal of several SLPs on this issue by the Hon ‘ble Supreme Court in limine at the admission stage itself without going into merit of the case. The Federations have also raised this issue in PNM Forum as well as in DC/JCM Forum (item No.I0/2012) demanding stepping up in such cases due to dismissal of SLPs. In view of the persistent dismissal of the SLPs by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India though without going into merit of the case or disputing  any of the statutory provisions in this regard, the Board has considered the matter and with a view to obviate repeated/multiple litigations Board has decided, as a special dispensation, to allow stepping up of pay to senior Loco Inspectors appointed prior to 01.01.2006 at par with their juniors appointed .after
01.01 .2006 who are identically placed to the employees involved in the following cases:-
