Instructions for stepping up of pay of Loco Inspector appointed prior to 1-1-2006 with reference to their juniors appointed after 1-1-2006, on fulfilling certain conditions were issued vide Board’s letter No. E(P&A)II/2008/RS-37 dated 24-07-2009. In terms of these instructions the benefit of stepping up of pay is not permissible without fulfilling the condition of Rule 3(a) mentioned therein which states us under, “Both the junior and the senior Railway servants should belong to the same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted should be identical in the same cadre and other conditions enumerated in Note 10 below Rule 7 of RS(RP) Rules, 2008 should be fulfilled.”
It has come to the notice of Railway Board that some of the Railways are not strictly following the conditions laid down in the instructions contained in Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II/2008/RS-37 dated 24-07-2009.
It is therefore, desired that such cases of anomaly may be considered only if all the conditions laid down in Board’s letter E(P&A)-II/2008/RS-37 dated 24-07-2009 are completely fulfilled.
