Over 3,500 supervisors for the East Coast Railway are to benefit from a new pay structure | So Good News


Bhubaneswar, November 18: As many as 3,521 supervisors working under the East Coast Railway will get the benefit of recently announced upgrades in the pay structures of the Supervisory Cadres of Indian Railways, an official said on Friday.

East Coast Railway General Manager RN Sunkar briefed the mediapersons here today that as many as 3521 supervisors working under East Coast Railway will benefit from the new policy of Indian Railways announced by Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw.

On Wednesday, Vaishnaw announced that supervisor cadre employees will be able to get a direct promotion. Under this policy, Railway Grade-6 employees will be able to get a direct promotion.

“Railway Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw has announced the upgradation of pay structures of supervisory cadres of Indian Railways. This was long pending demand of a large number of supervisors of Indian Railways. This is an important step to boost the morale of supervisors across the Indian Railways. This will be to benefiting nearly 80,000 supervisors across the Indian Railways,” Sunkar said.

Indian Railways is a multi-departmental and multi-disciplinary organization. The contribution from all these departments is crucial for optimal production for the entire railway network spread across the length and breadth of the country. Among these departments, supervisory cadres of various departments are most important and considered as the backbone, playing an important role in the smooth running of Indian Railways and thus ensuring the safety of the entire railway system.

Supervisory cadres of Indian Railways are reeling under acute stagnation primarily due to saturation of promotional channels to those directly recruited in Grade 6 (PB-2/Grade Pay-4200) of Group ‘C’.

As Indian Railways goes through the process of technological upgradation and to ensure that the transition is seamless to attract quality manpower, adequate promotional opportunities need to be ensured which do not exist as of now.

Considering these factors and to ensure career progression of supervisory cadres of Indian Railways and also to attract quality manpower to supervisory cadres, the issue was examined comprehensively by Indian Railways and proposed upgradation of (50%) of supervisory cadres from level-7 (PB-2/ GP 4600) to Level-8 (PB-2/GP-4800) and further upgrading of these posts in Level-8 (PB-2/GP-4800) to Level-9 (PB-2/GP) -5400) on non-functional basis after 4 years of service in Level-8 (PB-2/GP-4800) was announced by Indian Railways.
