Sub: Non-charging of annual increment in case of prolonged sickness followed by sad demise of the Railway employees
As per provision under para 606(ii)(a), Chapter VI of the IREM Vol. I, the annual increment of the Railway employee is charged from the due date, i.e. presently from 1st July, only, when the employee resumes duty in case he/she is on leave or on sick list prior to that day.
It has been brought to the notice of AIRF that there are certain cases wherein the employee, due to prolonged sickness, followed by sad demise, could not resume duty on or after 1st July, i.e. due date of increment, and subsequently expired. Non-resumption of duty in such cases was beyond his/her own control because of serious ailment for which he/she was unable to resume duty and subsequently expired. In compliance of the above provision of the IREM, no annual increment from 1st July, i.e. due date, is charged in such cases and there is substantial cumulative loss at the time of settlement of such deceased employees.
