In Ministry of Railways, substitutes are still being recruited with non-matric qualification and are being given PB-1 grade with 1800 GP at few places and -1S with 1300 GP at other places with all other parameters being identical. Where they are getting GP 1800, there is no problem, but where they bare getting 1300 GP, will they face problem at the time of regularisation? Also, why loss of pay? They don't want to do any paper query, for fear of losing job, being non-matric.What options they have, except confrontation? Pl. guide.
