    Sir,
    A peon or any class IV staff’s entry Pay Scale is Rs. 5,200-20,000/- with grade pay of Rs.1800/- or Rs.1900/- as per designation. An ASM who is responsible for the whole station (Operation, Commercial and everything). So to say he is the in-charge of the station. His pay scale is equal to his TP and Peons etc.

    Does it not sound funny?

    A Station Master is the MASTER of a railway station. But his salary is very very less compared to his multifarious duties. He is a supervisor. But he is placed below others who are supervised by him, in terms of salary. New generation after joining this post simply resigning and escapes after knowing the reality. Without a decent salary well qualified people will not remain in this post. Indian Railways to consider this seriously. In Indian Railways an ANT is getting more salary than an ELEPHANT in view of work load !!!!!!!

      Clerk,Peon of Rail gets huge salary but they have no work load. But Technician Gr III, Station Master, Goods Guard, ALP, Gangman who works high work load gets very less salary comparitively. 7th Pay Commission commission should care for Technician Gr III

    I am selected for ASM in RRB Allahabad, I have filled my preference of ASM Post above the Goods Guard.Because of I filled the ASM post above the Goods Guard so I did not select for Goods Guard. Actually I was expecting a good salary for ASM post but after reading the many blog about salary of ASM, I am very desperate about my preference. now a days I want to get the post of Goods guard.I want to leave the ASM post and want to join Goods Guard post because of very low salary in ASM job.
    Please suggest me how can I change my job from ASM to Goods Guard ?????
