Personal Pay

Personal Pay
By Shri Nagaraja Rao, Dy.CPO (Retd)

§   Authority:  FR -9 and 1305 R II

§  Means Additional Pay granted to a Railway Servant

§  Two possibilities – Granting personal Pay

1. He should have suffered loss in pay due to downward revision of pay in the permanent post. The downward revision of pay should not be as a result of disciplinary action against him.
2. His service should have been continuously satisfactory, he should show extraordinary talent in his work, though he is fit for promotion he is not going to get it due to non availability of vacancy or he is very junior in seniority to get promotion and he is drawing same pay continuously for at least five years.
§  Medically decategorised employees and surplus staff come under item No. 1 above. As per extant instructions, medically decategorised employee should be given alternative post suiting to the medical category in which he is found medically fit so that he should not suffer loss in grade and pay.

§  However, sometimes there may not be vacancy in suitable post to consider him. In such cases, he will be posted in lower grade post. Due to this his pay also get reduced. To avoid this situation, his pay will be protected by granting personal pay which is equal to the loss he suffered.

§   The same procedure is followed even in the case of staff rendered surplus due to surrender of posts.
Example of Personal Pay
1.       Hindi personal pay: ( Abolished wef 29/10/1984. In its place payment of onetime payment of lumpsum amount is introduced)
