7th Pay Commission - Revised pay limits for entitlement of Passes/PTOs: Railway Board Order 

RBE No.No. 120/2019 


(रेलवे बोर्ड) (RAILWAY BOARD)

No.E(W)2016/PSS- 1/8 
New Delhi, dated .26.07.2019

The General Managers (P) All Zonal Railways & Production Units.
Sub: Revised pay limits for entitlement of Passes/PTOs.
Consequent to implementation of 7th Central Pay Commission's recommendations and notification of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, the "Grade Pay" component has been dispensed with and "Pay Level in Pay Matrix" (PLPM) has been introduced in the pay structure of railway servants. Hence, switching over to 7th CPC based PLPM to determine pay limits for entitlement of Passes/PTOs has been under consideration.
2. The Competent Authority has now accorded his approval for amending the extant provisions of Railway Servants (Pass) Rules-1986 (Second Edition-1993) (RSPR-1986) to switch over to "Status (i.e. Gazetted/Non-gazetted) cum PLPM" basis to determine the entitlement of Passes/PTOs, as indicated in the enclosed Advance Correction Slip No.81.

3. The extant provisions of RSPR-1986 and other administrative instructions issued from time to time shall continue to apply in all other respects.

4. If a railway servant, who is presently entitled to First Class Pass becomes ineligible to First Class Pass on the basis of revised criteria, the First Class Pass may be allowed as personal to the employee.

5. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.
