Sub: Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 – Clarification regarding fixation of pay under Rule 13 on promotion in various situations where feeder and promotional categories lie in the same level in the Pay Matrix.


Consequent to implementation of 7th CPC recommendations, doubts have been arisen on applicability of provisions under Rule 1313 (FR-22)(I)(a)(I) of R-II vis-a-vis Rule 13 of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016 in cases where certain feeder and promotional posts of Railways lie in the same/identical Level(s) in the Pay Matrix.

  1. During 6th CPC pay regime, similar situations were arisen and the matter was examined in consultation with Ministry of Finance and Federations and detailed instructions were issued vide Board’s letter No. PC-VI/2011/IC/1 dated 12.09.2013 (RBE No. 95/2013).
  2. In the Pay Matrix recommended by 7th CPC, only replacement scales have been recommended for the categories covered under Board’s letter dated 12.09.2013 and no changes in circumstances have been observed, therefore, the guidelines contained therein will continue to be applicable in respect of following categories:-
Sl. No. Feeder Category Promotional Category Payscale and Grade Pay in 6th CPC Corresponding Level in Pay Matrix under 7th CPC
1 Chief Matron Asst. Nursing Officer PB-3 GP Rs. 5400 Level 10
2 Sr. Technician Junior Engineer PB-2 GP Rs. 4200 Level 6

(ii) Loco Pilot (Passenger) (ii)Loco Pilot (Mail/Express) PB-2 GP Rs. 4200 Level 6
(iii)Passenger Guard (iii) Mail/Express Guard PB-2 GP Rs. 4200 Level 6


  1. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of Ministry of Railways. However, above have been done only on a provisional basis and is subject to the concurrence of the Ministry of Finance. Further, it may be ensured that before the benefit is extended, a declaration from the concerned employee may be obtained to refund the amount in case, the Ministry of Finance does not agree to this proposal.
