The Indian Ministry of Railways has issued a clarification regarding the cost ceiling of attendants who are engaged in lieu of TADK (Train Attendant-cum-Cook) through contracted manpower outsourcing agencies.
The cost ceiling (excluding other statutory obligations, service charge, GST, and other administrative costs) of such attendants should not exceed the bottom of Level-1 in the Pay Matrix of the 7th CPC (Central Pay Commission) plus applicable D.A. This amendment modifies a previous letter issued by the Railway Board in October 2022.
