Hi All

the Sixth pay Notification in Part-B section I, para(ii) reads as follows:

On account of merger of pre-revised pay scales of 5000-8000, 5500-9000 and 6500-10500, some posts which presently constitute feeder and promotion grades in come to lie in an identical grade. The specific recommendations about some categories of these posts made by the Pay Commission are included (in) Section II of Part B. As regards other posts, the posts in these scales should be merged. In case it is not feasible to merge the posts in these pay scales on functional considerations, the posts in the scale of Rs. 5000-8000 and Rs. 5500-9000 should be merged, with the post in the scale of Rs. 6500-10500 being upgraded to the next higher grade in the pay band PB-2.i.e., to the grade pay of Rs. 4600 corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale of Rs. 7450-11500.In case a post already exists in thescale of Rs. 7450-11500, the post being upgraded from the scale of Rs. 6500-10500 should be merged with the post in the scale of Rs. 7450-11500.

Now this being the case the posts in the above said scales (pre-revised) in the Ministry of Finance are as under:

Tax Assistant - Rs.5000-8000
Senior Tax Assistant - Rs. 5500-9000
Inspector - Rs. 6500-10500

Supdt./ITO/ Appriaser- Rs. 7500-12000

Thus it is seen that there no post exists in the pre-revised scale of Rs. 7450-11500. Also the posts of Tax Assistant and Senior Tax Assistant are feeder cadres to the promotion post of Inspector. Also the functions and duties of the Tax Assistant/ Senior Tax Assistant and Inspector are vastly different. 33% of the vacancies to the cadre of Inspector are filled through promotion.

This being so, it is straight application of the above part of the Notification that the post of Inspector be upgraded to the pre-revised scale of Rs. 6450-11500 (grade pay 4600),

It pains to see lot of Inspectors jointed the Department after 2006 in the scale of Rs. 6500-10500, are being getting lower upgraded pay than Tax assistant who were drawing Rs. 5150 in the scale of Rs.5000-8000.

pay scale of Rs.6500-10500/- in your case must be upgraded to Rs.7450/- with the approval of MoF as per notification. For the purpose your department has to submit a roposal for this upgradation to MoF for their concurrence as per notificaton. It will not come on its own. Try to convince ur controlling authority. U are not wrong, it is clearly mentioned in notification issued
