Sub: Merger of Sr.P.Way Supervisors with JE/P.Way.
The issue of merger of Senior Permanent Way Supervisors (PB-2, Grade Pay Rs. 4200) with junior Engineer (P.Way) had been raised in the PNM by both the Federations (AIRF/NFIR). Accordingly, with a view to strengthening and rationalizing the staffing pattern on Railways, the issue of enbloc merger of Sr.Permanent Way Supervisors (PB-2, Grade Pay Rs.4200) with Junior Enigneer/P.Way (PB-2, Grade Pay Rs. 4200) was under examination in Ministry of Railways. As a result of the review undertaken on the basis of functional, operational and administrative requirements, it has been decided that all the regular posts (excluding surplus, supernumerary, and ex-cadre posts) of Sr. Permanent Way Supervisors in PB-2, Grade Pay Rs. 4200 should enbloc be merged with the cadre of Junior Engineer (P.Way) with its spread effect in higher grade PB-2, Grade Pay Rs. 4600.
2. The entire exercise of merger of Sr. Permanent Way Supervisors with JE/P.Way with its spread effect to the post of SSE(P.Way) would be self-financing and expenditure neutral proposition. Additional financial implications should be worked out taking into account the revised pay including Grade Pay as per 6th CPC as listed in the fitment table, corresponding to the midpoint of the pre-revised pay scale (5th CPC) in respect of the each post, alongwith the applicable Dearness Allowance. After working out the financial implications, the matching savings should be effected from the category itself. Wherever it is not possible to do so from the category itself, the matching savings should be arranged from the department at the Divisional/ Zonal level. While effecting surrender of posts of equivalent financial value, the existing vacant posts available in the category on the cut-off date should be considered for the purpose of off setting the cost of merger of Sr. Permanent Way Supervisors with JE/P.Way and its spread effect to the post of SSE(P.Way). There would be no merger of Sr. Permanent Way Supervisors with JE/P.Way with its spread effect to the post of SSE (P.Way) without matching savings by surrender of posts.
3. These orders are effective from the date of issue of these orders.
4. This issues in consultation with the Civil Engineering & Establishment Directorates and with concurrence of the Finance Directorate of this Ministry.
