Non Practising Allowance (NPA) to IRMS officers

  • Non-Practising Allowance shall be paid to Railway Doctors at the rate of 25% of pay in pay band plus grade pay subject to the condition that the Basic Pay + NPA does not exceed Rs.85000/-. 
  • The term ‘basic pay’ in the revised pay structure means the pay drawn in the prescribed pay band plus the applicable grade pay but does not include any other type of pay like special pay, etc.  In the case of Government servants in the pay scales of HAG + and above, basic pay means the pay in the prescribed scale.
  • The Non-Practising Allowance will be treated as pay for the purpose of computing Dearness Allowance, entitlement of Travelling Allowance and other allowances as well as for calculation of retirement benefits.
  • An upgradation earned by the IRMS officers under the Dynamic ACP Scheme has all the attributes of a regular promotion, all benefits (including Silver Pass) which are available to IRMS officers on regular promotion, may also be allowed to them on grant of higher Grade Pay earned under the DACP Scheme.
