On 22nd July 2016, the demand relating to merger of Technicians Grade-II (GP 2400/-) with Technician Grade-I (GP 2800/-) was discussed by the Board with the Federations.

In this connection, NFIR brings to the notice of Railway Board that in the wake of orders issued by the Railway Board for implementation of 7th CPC Pay Matrices and grant of option for switching over to revised pay, a number of representations being received at this, urging for implementation of the agreement to enable the employees to take a decision for exercising option for revised pay matrix. While the Federation is aware that the proposal is already under process, it may kindly be appreciated that expeditious action is required to be taken for issuing orders which would facilitate staff to exercise option for7th CPC Pay Matrix.
NFIR, therefore, requests the Railway Board (MS & FC) to kindly see that orders are issued at the earliest revising the percentages as above with effect from September 1, 2016.
