Sub: Inter-action meeting with the Seventh Central Pay Commission on NFIR’s memorandum-reg.
Ref: NFIR’s letter No. IV/NFIR/7th CPC/CORRES/Pt. V dated 02/08/2014.
Federation vide its letter dated 02/08/2014, addressed to the Secretary, Seventh Central Pay Commission had made following suggestions with regard to holding interaction meetings:-
a) Inter-action meetings may be fixed giving us reasonable advance intimation to enable us to reschedule our other programmes,
b) Meeting/hearing may be fixed department wise to facilitate us to meet the Pay Commission along with the representatives of the concerned department/category.
c) In the Railways, there are eight major departments with hundreds of categories. Eight different dates for explaining our case may kindly be considered.
d) Inter-action meetings may also be convened for explaining the case of miscellaneous and isolated categories in Railways.
e) Separate date and time be provided to facilitate the NFIR to explain uniqueness of railways as well unique nature of duties of railway employee in general.
Federation is yet to receive response from the Seventh Central Pay Commission.
In this connection, NFIR desires to mention that the 6th CPC had allotted a total time of 28 hours to us in different spells/different dates to explain the case of Railway employees belonging to various categories in different departments. Federation trusts that similar time slots would be provided to us by the 7th CPC as well.
NFIR, therefore, once again requests the Hon’ble Chairman Seventh Central Pay Commission to arrange to allot adequate time slots and convey to the Federation.
