Sub: Reiteration of GP 4800/5400 (level-8/level-9) as apex promotional grade in stenographers cadre in Field offices (including Zonal Railways) as per extant provisions.
Proposals are being received from Railways/ Production Units for upgradation of Stenographers cadre by granting GP 6600/- in PB-3 (6th CPC scales) to senior PSs-I in the Railway/ Unit.
2. In above context, it is hereby clarified that in terms of the extant rules/position such a grade in GP Rs.6600/- is not available/ sanctioned in the category of Stenographers on zonal Railways (Field Offices). Further, based on the recommendations of Pay Commissions and decisions of the Government/Railway Board, there is no provision for a grade in pay structure higher than GP Rs.4800/5400 (Level 8/Level 9) in field offices including zonal Railways. Any local Office Order wherever issued by any Railway contrary to this established position is irregular and is to be withdrawn immediately under intimation to this office.
