Sir,

Government of India vide their Office memorandum No. F.No.1/1/2008-IC dated 13-09-2008 given some clarifications on CCS ( Revised pay ) Rules, 2008. In their clarification No. 2 regarding the method of fixation of pay on promotion after 01-01-2006, it has mentioned as follows.
On promotion from one grade to another/ financial upgradation under ACP, a government servant has an option under FR22 (1)a(1) to get his pay fixed in the higher post either from the date of his promotion, or from date of his next increment viz. 1st July of the year. The pay will be fixed in the following manner in the revised pay structure.

a) in the case of government servant opts to get his pay fixed from his date of next increment, then , on the date of promotion, pay in the pay band shall continue unchanged, but the grade pay of the higher post will be granted. Further, re-fixation will be done on the date of his next increment ie. 1st July. On that day, he wil be granted two increments , one annual increment and the second on account of promotion. While computing these two increments, basic pay prior to the date of promotion shall be taken into account. To illustrate, if the basic pay prior to the date of promotionwas Rs.100, first increment would be computed on Rs.100 and the second on Rs.103.

b) In case the government servant opts to get his pay fixed in the higher grade from the date of his promotion, he shall get his first increment in the higher grade on the next 1st july if he was promoted between 2nd July and 1st January. However, if he was promoted between 2nd January and 30th June of a particular year, he shall get his increment on 1st july of next year.

So, the clarification given in ( b ) is quite irregular. It leads to anomoly every time. As per the above clarification, officials who gets promotion during the first half year would draw lesser pay than the officials who gets promotion during the second half year. That means, the officials who gets early promotion would draw less pay than the officials who gets latter promotions. To illustrate,

Supposingly, Mr. Ramesh and Mr. Suresh are drawing 11700/- basic pay ( Rs.9300 +2400 grade pay ) in the revised pay structure as on 01-01-2006. Mr.Ramesh was promoted to the next cadre on 01-03-2006. Then his pay will be fixed as 12460/- ( Rs.9660+2800 grade pay ). He will get his next increment only on 01-07-2007. On 01-07-2007 his basic pay would be 12840/- ( Rs.10040+2800 grade pay ).

Whereas Mr. Suresh got promotion on 01-09-2006. Then his basic pay will be fixed as follows.
On 01-07-2006 he will draw increment inhis present cadre. ie. 12060/- ( Rs.9660+2400 grade pay ).
On 01-09-2006 he got promotion and his pay will be 12830/- ( Rs.10030+2800 grade pay )
As on 01-07-2007 he gets his ususal increment. Then his pay will be 13220 ( Rs.10420+2800 grade pay ). That means Mr.Suresh who got promtion after Mr.Ramesh will be drawing more pay. This is a clear anomoly.

Basic pay
Ramesh Suresh
( promoted on 01-03-2006 ) ( promoted on 01-09-2006)
01-01-2006 11700 11700
01-03-2006 12460 11700
01-07-2006 12460 12060
01-09-2006 12460 12830
01-07-2007 12840 13220


This will happen in every case. I therefore request you to take up the matter at appropriate level and cause issue of necessary orders. To overcome the above anomoly, increment should be given on every 1st july in his exising cadre as on the date irrespective of his date of promotion. The official should have an option to get his increment in the present case or promotional cadre in case he gets promotion in the month of July.

Sir,

I was drawing Rs.8300 in the scale of Rs.6500-10500 (S.O. cadre) as on 1-1-06. I was promoted as AAO in the Scale of Rs.7450-11500 w.e.f. 2-1-2006. I opted to fix my pay from the date of next increment i.e., 1-6-2006 where my pay was fixed at Rs.8800 in the scale of Rs.7450-11500. Now that VI Pay commission has merged Rs.6500-10500 and Rs.7450-11500 scale to Rs.7500-12500. by giving Rs.9300-34800 Pay Band Rs.4800 Grade pay. As I was promoted w.e.f. 1-2-06, I have not been given the benefit of 3% increment on promotion as both scales have been merged. In this connection, I may please be entlighten, whether S.O/AAO Grade have seperate entity in I.A.&.A.D. thereby granting 3% increment on promotion. If it is not done, I will lose monetary benefit cumulatively. Please clarify.

V.Viswanathan, AAO,
Bangalore.

since 6500 scale has been merged with 7450 scale and upgraded to 7500 scale wef 1/1/06, your pay will have to be fixed with referce to the min pay prescribed for gp 4800 ie at 18150. in that case there will be no anomoly / financial loss as there will be no more promotion to the scale of 7450 hereafter. refer civilaccounts.blogspot.com for further clarification

Sir, I am Murali, working in Central Govt, autonomous organisation. My pay in the Month of May 2011, was 16190 +Grade Pay 4600= 20790 (in the pay band of 9300-34500)

During June 2011, I was appointed (through advt. and selection committee) in same organisation in the pay of 15600-39100 with Grade Pay of 5400/-. I opted that that my Pay is fixed in the month of July, because I will get increment in the month of July 2011 by protecting my pay. Can any body clarify what is my pay in the month of July 2011?

As per FR 22(1)(a)(1) the option of fixation from the date of increment in the old scale is not available in the case of Direct Recruitment to another post. However, you are enttiled to pay fixation from the date of appointment in GP 5400. You are therefore entitled to a 3% increment and change in grade pay to 5400 w.e.f. date of appointment in June 2011. The date of next increment will be 1st July 2012.

Dear Sh. Victor ji,

I have little difference of opinion.
As per FR22 Ia(i) option for fixation of pay from DNI is certainly not available to DR to another post.
However, Mr. Murali on his appointment to PB-3+GP 5400 will get pay of Rs. 16190 only (which is was already drawing) without any further 3% increment of higher responsibility. The incremental growth has already been incorporated by way of enhanced grade pay (Rs. 5400) from Rs. 4600.

FR22 Ia(1) prior to 2006, provided increment while there was promotion or appointment to higher post since there were no grade pays involved.
Now FR 22 I a(1) read with CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, provides increment of 3% only in promotion cases and not in case of appointment (term appointment is omitted). Consequently only protection of pay in pay band is admissible while allowing the enhanced grade pay of new DR post (Rs. 5400).

The DNI will certainly be 01 July 2012.

I seek your views.

Regards,

Hardeep

Kindly refer to Clarification No. 3 of OM dated 29.1.2009 (http://finmin.nic.in/6cpc/fno1108dt290109.pdf).

As per this clarification, FR 22(I)(a)(i) still holds good and that the only modification that has taken place after CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 is the "method of pay fixation". So the other provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(i) are still applicable and in my view Shri Murali would also be entitled to a 3% hke in the band pay on his appointment on DR basis.

However, clarity can only come after DOPT issues the notification of revised FR 22. It is unfortunate that even after 3 years of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, DOPT is yet to come out with the modified FR 22.
