Incidentally, Federation desires to mention that the subject matter could not be discussed in the NFIR’s PNM meeting held with the Railway Board on 13th & 14th November, 2017 due to paucity of time, however, the issue has been discussed informally with the ED/PC-1 on 14th & 15th January, 2018 by the General Secretary, NFIR and it was requested that orders in this connection may be issued soon on the basis of the decision of the nodal Ministry vide O.M. dated 09th September, 2016. Federation also conveys that the Railway Ministry is part of the Government of India and it bound to implement the instructions issued by the nodal Ministry in so far as the staff of Para – Medical categories working on Indian Railways is concerned. Taking different view in the matter and again referring the subject to the nodal Ministry or the DoP&T will cause further delay, leading staff dissatisfaction.
While enclosing copies of PNM agenda and Ministry of Health & Family Welfare OM’s dated 90th September, 2016 and our letter dated 12/09/2016, NFIR expresses its disappointment over Railway Board’s negative approach and the same time urges your kind intervention.

Item No.29/2017
Sub: Grant of erstwhile GP 6600/- (PB-3) as 3rd financial upgradation under MACPS to Nursing Personnel in Railways-reg.
Ref: (i) Ministry of Health and Family Welfare’s OM.No. Z-28015/5/2016-N(Pt.) dated 09th September 2016.
(ii) NFIR’ s letter No. IV/MACPS/09/Part 10 dated 12/09/2016 to Railway Board.
NFIR vide its letter dated 12/09/2016 invited Railway Board’s attention to the O.M. dated 09th September 2016 issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on the subject relating to granting 3rd MACP in GP 6600/- (PB-3) to the Nursing Personnel of the Central Government. Para A of the said O.M. stated that those staff nurses/nursing sisters/assistant nursing superintendents who have been awarded 1st and 2nd financial upgradation under ACP Scheme in the hierarchy of Vth CPC Pay Scales Rs. 5500-9000 and 6500-10500 upto 31st August 2008 are entitled for replacement Grade Pay of 4800/- (PB-2) and 5400/- (PB-3) of VI CPC and therefore, the 3rd financial upgradation under MACPS is to be granted to those staff in erstwhile GP 6600/- (PB-3) and accordingly the same may be revised if the said MACP has been granted in GP 5400 (PB-3).
From the decision of the Ministry of Family Health and Welfare, it is clear that those Nursing Personnel in Railways, promoted to Scale Rs. 5500-9000 (V CPC) or got ACP benefit are to be treated as holders of GP 4800/- (PB-2)/pay matrix level 7 and those who were in Pay Scale Rs. 6500-10500/7450-11500 either through 2nd ACP or through promotion upto 30 August 2008 to be treated as holders of GP 5400/- (PB-3)/pay matrix level 9. As the MACPS came into effect from 01/09/2008, those Nursing Personnel who got Grade Pay 5400/- (PB-3) and fulfilled the condition for entitlement of 3rd financial upgradation, should be granted erstwhile GP 6600 (PB-3) as 3rd MACP. The Federation further contents that the cases of Nursing Personnel who have been granted GP 5400 as 3rd financial upgradation under MACPS, need to be reviewed for granting erstwhile GP 6600 as 3rd MACP instead GP 5400 (PB-3).
NFIR., therefore, requests the Railway Board to accord approval for allowing erstwhile GP 6600/- (PB-3) as 3rd financial upgradation under MACPS to the Nursing Personnel in lieu of erstwhile GP 5400 (PB-3).

In the said para it has also been stated that the 3rd financial up-gradation under MACPS wherever granted in GP 5400/-(PB-3), the same be revised to GP 6600/- (PB-3).
