Dear Sir

Subject: Grant of Grade Pay of Rs.5400 in PB-3 to Senior Section Engineers (SSE) &
Grade Pay of Rs.4800 in PB-2 to Junior Engineers (JE) on Indian Railways –
Request for kind intervention.


Reference:-i) Notification No.470, Ministry of Finance G.S.R. 622(E) dated 29-8- 2008

ii) Railway Service (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 (RBE 103, RBE 108, RBE 124)

1.
REQUEST FOR KIND INTERVENTION: It is a matter of pride & privilege of the Indian
Railways that you have personally taken over as the additional charge of the
Railways. We take this opportunity to request you for your kind intervention on an
issue of serious concern to for over 50,000 Technical Supervisors / Engineers on
account of serious injustice done with the Senior Section Engineers (SSE) & Junior
Engineers (JE) on Indian Railways.
2.
DISTURBANCE OF EXISTING RELATIVITY & PARITY BY SIXTH PAY COMMISSION:
Technical Supervisors or the Supervising Engineers (JE, SSE) of Indian Railways,
are the back bone of the Railway system and are being denied of their justifiable
pay scales. Higher duties, responsibilities and accountability that are directly
linked to the safe operation of trains & performance of Railways were not
considered while deciding their pay scales. Common bunching of pay scales
equated their pay scales with the categories working under them disturbing the
vertical parity. Pay scales of categories, which were in the lower pay scales, were
given up-gradation and even placed two scales above Technical Supervisors
disturbing the horizontal parity. The category that was given exclusive higher pay
scale among all Group-C employees was given humiliatingly lower pay scales than
the categories, which do not shoulder as much responsibilities like them.

3.
SUPERVISOR & THE SUPERVISED PLACED IN SAME GRADE PAY – VIOLATING
SETTLED LAW & PRINCIPLES LAID DOWN BY SIXTH PAY COMMISION ITSELF:
a) Junior Engineers (JEs) and Senior Technicians have both been placed in the same
Grade Pay of Rs.4200 – even though the Junior Engineers (JEs) supervise the Senior
Technicians. This is totally in violation on principle of natural justice as well as
against the settle law (by the Apex Court) that an “equal cannot be over an equal” – in
keeping with the provisions of Article 39 of the Constitution of India.

b) This is in violation of the principle defined by the Sixth CPC – “Grade pay will
determine the status of a post with (apart from the two apex scales of Secretary/equivalent
and Cabinet Secretary/equivalent that do not carry any grade pay) a senior post being given
higher grade pay. Grade pay being progressively higher for successive higher posts, the
employees on promotion will get monetary benefit on promotion in the form of the increased
grade pay apart from the benefit of one additional increment.

(Extract of Para 2.2.11 of Sixth CPC are placed at Annexure IV)

4.
DECISIONS OF DEPARTMENTAL ANOMALIES COMMITTEE NOT IMPLEMENTED:
It is regretted that even the recommendations of the Departmental Anomalies
Committee and Priority Committee of Ministry of Railways, regarding upgrading the
Grade Pay of Senior Section Engineers & Junior Engineers of Indian Railways made

as long back as in 2009, to the Ministry of Finance, had not so far been accepted by
the by the Ministry of Finance. Had that been done, that would have removed the
anomaly at least partially.

5.
IMPORTANCE OF ROLE OF ENGINEERS ON RAILWAYS TOTALLY IGNORED:
a) Nearly every infrastructure created on Indian Railways is a direct result of some
form of Engineering. It ensures the country with essentials required to meet its
transportation needs. Without it, country would never have moved forward. It is the
engineering which makes the Indian Railways to progress and prosper. Engineers
have constructed the Indian Railways, which offers one of the cheapest and safest
transport system compared to any transport system in the world. On Indian
Railways system – buildings, tracks, bridges, motive powers, rolling stocks, Signal
& telecommunication, traction & distribution etc and every brick of it are built and
maintained by the Engineers.

b) 3500 Group “A” Officers, 2500 Group “B” officers and 70000 Group “C”
Supervising Engineers / Technical Supervisors are directly getting the work
executed from 9.2 lakh technical workers out of 13.2 lakhs Railway employees. This
engineering family is the one direct force in making the system work day and night
24 hours on all 365 days of the year. Presently these Engineers – especially those
in Group “C” – are totally frustrated and demoralized.

c) It is unfortunate that both Fifth and Sixth Pay Commissions have
underestimated the significant and sensitiveness of the work-content of the
Engineers, their responsibility and accountability in the system reversing the
recognition given by the Third and Fourth CPC.. Many truthful situations went out
of sight of both these Pay Commissions which placed the Technical Supervisors on
par with the supporting non-technical staff or rather placed the Grade Pay of JEs &
SSEs even below the supporting staffs thus disturbing the existing relativity and
hierarchy (as apparent from Annexure III attached herewith).

6.
TECHNICAL SUPERVISORS GREATLY FRUSTRATED – NEED FOR DAMAGE CONTROL:
The Technical Supervisors or the Supervising Engineers (JE, SSE) on the Railways
have lost their status resulting in total frustration and mental agony. Even though
there are several other issues as well which need to be settled early, but we bring
to your kind notice the issue of Grade Pay which needs to be addressed on priority

-as a damage control exercise – (keeping in view the detailed justification
submitted in Annexure I, II & III attached herewith).
7.
OUR REQUEST & APPEAL: It is requested that – keeping in view the above
submissions & the detailed justification attached herewith:
a)
Grade Pay of Rs.5400 in PB-3 may please be granted to the Senior Section
Engineers (SSE) on the Railways; and

b)
Grade Pay of Rs.4800 in PB-2 may please be granted to the Junior Engineers
(JE) on the Railways.

With kind regards,

Yours faithfully,

5. The eligibility conditions in respect of qualifying service and age group in case of Gang-men and other safety categories in grade pay of Rs.1800/- would remain 20 years and 50-57 years respectively, and the suitability of their wards would be adjudged by an Assessment Committee of 3 JA Grade officers at Divisional level.


6. It is once again reiterated that the retirement of the employee be considered only if the ward is found suitable in all respects. Retirement of the employee and appointment of the ward should take place simultaneously.
