Dear Comrades,

Sub: Revised pay limits for entitlements of Passes/PTOs-adding 30% of basic pay for Running Staff-reg:-

Ref:-No. (1) E (W) 2008/PS 5-1/38 DATED 06.01.2011

(2) Running allowance Rules 1981

(3) Railway servants (pass) rules, 1986 (Second edition.1993)

(4) RBE No.202/2008 dated 26.12.2008

1. In connection with orders on revised pay limits for entitlement of passes/PTOs under reference (1) above, some Sr.Asst.Loco Pilots and loco pilot (shg) in the grade pay of Rs.2400/- enquired whether their 30% of the basic pay would be added to find out the entitlement of 3 set of higher class passes.

2. Rules and Board orders on this subject are detailed for better understand,

Rule 25(i) (a) of running allowance Rules, 1981 regarding specified benefits for “Reckoning of Running allowance as pay” say that “30% of basic pay of running staff shall be reckoned as pay for entitlement of passes and PTOs”. In the case of running staff Rule 2 (j)(ii) The Railway Servants(Pass) Rules ,1986,(Second Edition,1993) the provisions of which are to be applied in all other respects as per points no 3 of the orders on revised pay limits under reference(i) which reiterates that “Pay means , in the case of Running staff, basic pay plus 30% there of or any other percentage of basic pay declared as pay from timer to time”

3. Railway board on implementation of Sixth Central Pay Commission recommended pay structure of pay bands and grade pay defined” basic pay” as “pay in the pay band plus grade pay” and through RBE NO. 202/2008 dated 26.12.2008 communicated that “The president is pleased to decide that the pay element in Running Allowance for running staff would be30% of the basic pay under the Railway Services (Revised pay) Rules, 2008 for computation of the specified benefits”. The specified benefits are in Rule 25(i) of Running allowance Rules 1981, as mentioned in Para 2.

4. From rules and orders quoted above, it is amply clear that for running staff 30% of their basic pay should be added to the Grade pay shown in RBE No.03/2011 dated 6th January 2011 to find out the entitlement of type of passes and PTOs.
