Grant of Qualification Pay to the Nursing Personnel – AIRF
Dated: January 28, 2019
The Member Staff,
Sub: Grant of Qualification Pay to the Nursing Personnel
Ref.: MoH&FW’s F.No.Z.28015/53/2017-N dated 28.09.2018
The Nursing Staff who have been in possession of BSc. Degree were being paid “Qualification Pay” (two additional increments) even after implementation of recommendations of the VII CPC. However, after implementation of VII CPC recommendations, no revision of additional increment, as mentioned-above, being paid to the Nursing Staff, as has been done so far. This is causing heart burning to the said category of staff.
It is understood that, the issue is already being taken-up by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare(Government of India) for the Nursing Staff working in other than Railway Hospitals.
It is, therefore, requested that, the matter may be looked into on priority for revision of additional increments in consonance with the recommendation of the VII CPC in case of Nursing Staff, working in Railway Hospitals, as “Qualification Pay”.
An early action in the matter shall be highly appreciated.
