Revision of rates of Kilometreage Allowance and allowance in lieu of Kilometreage(ALK)

No.AIRF/55                        Dated: April 15, 2011

The Secretary(E),

Railway Board,

New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Revision of rates of Kilometreage Allowance and allowance in lieu of Kilometreage(ALK)

Ref: Railway Board’s letter No.E(P&A)II–2005/RS–34 dated 26.12.2008

            The rates of Kilometreage Allowance and allowance in lieu of Kilometreage(ALK) were revised w.e.f. 01.09.2008 or from the date the Running Staff opted to come over to Railway Services(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008, whichever is later ,vide Board’s letter cited above.

          AIRF, have repeatedly represented to Railway Board for granting arrears and to revise the rates of these allowances w.e.f. 01.01.2006 to the Running Staff who have already opted to come over to Railway Services(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. 01.01.2006, but Railway Board’s decision on the subject is still pending.

          In this context, it may be appreciated that about 70% of Running Allowance is having Travelling Allowance component and in terms of Railway Board’s letter No.F(E)I/2008/AL–28/14 dated 01.12.2008, there shall be automatic increase in the rate of TA/DA by 25% whenever DA payable on the revised pay structure goes up by 50%. In this connection, it may be mentioned that DA has been increased from 45% to 51% w.e.f. 01.01.2011.

         The Board are therefore, urged upon to review the entire issue of Running Allowance at the earliest with all consequential benefits as already represented by AIRF from time to time.

An early action in the matter is solicited.

Yours faithfully,

(Shiva Gopal Mishra)

General Secretary
