As employees whose date of increment was between 1st Feb.'06 and June'06, have been given additional increment on 1.1.06. This is partiality being done by government, as these employees will get TWO increment in a single year i.e. on 1.1.2006 and on 1.7.2006 whereas the other employees will be deprived of one increment i.e. on 1.1.06. Further, by getting an additional increment some junior employees will get more salary thereby causing anomaly.

My initial date of joining was 12.5.1989 and i got promotion in August 2000 as Steno Gr.II. I got MACP on May, 2009. I was drawing a basic pay of Rs.5750 as on 1.1.06 whereas one of junior colleague was drawing basic pay of Rs.5600 and he got MACP in June,2010. AS per my calculation, he will get more salary than as on date.
Kindly clarify how my ay will be affected in this case.

Kindly indicate the post, basic pay (pre-revised) and the pay scales (pre-revised) as on 1.1.2006 of the senior and junior for a better understanding of the case/anomaly.

Thanks Mr. Victor for your attention to my query. The information you asked for is as under :

I joined Civil Construction Wing, AIR as Steno Gr.III in the pre revised scale of Rs.1200-2040 (Rs.4000-100-6000 inthe 5th Pay Commission) I got promotion as Steno Gr.II in the PS ofRs.5000-150-8000 in AUGUST, 2000. I was drawing BP of Rs.5750 as on 1.1.2006. I earned 2nd MACP on completion of 20 years service in May, 2009. My increment month was AUGUST prior to 1.1.06.

My junior colleague joined the same organisation in June, 1990 as Steno Gr. in the same PS as of me. He got 1st ACP in June 2002 on completion of 12 years service. He was drawing a BP of Rs.5600 as on 1.1.2006. Now, on granting one additional increment on 1.1.2006 his BP comes at par with me i.e. Rs.5750/- resulting in my one year seniority of no use. He got 2nd MACP on completion of 20 years service in June 2010. By granting one additional increment i.e. on 1.1.2006 and next increment on 1.7.2006 he shall be earning two increment in a single year whereas I will be getting only ONE increment. This is the anomaly according to my simple understanding of the case.. Keeping in view the grant of one additional increment and MACP, he may draw more salary than me.

When 6th CPC merged the pay scales of Rs.5000/5500/6500 for those placed in the pay scale of 5000 and 5500, we have neither been considered for grant of GP 4600 nor any benefit of bunching was allowed. What are your views on this. Kindly clarify this too.

As per my calculations your junior will not draw more pay than you, although the difference will narrow down to Rs.10/-. Hence, there will be no anomaly as such and you may count yourself as lucky. In my department a person promoted as Assistant in 1991 was drawing less pay than an Assistant who was promoted 15 years later in 2006. This was due to the benefit of 13,860 extended to those Assistants/PAs who were promoted during 1.1.2006 to 31.8.2008.

Kindly note that after every pay commission the difference of pay between seniors and juniors tends to get compressed. There is no solution to this problem. Only stepping up of pay can be considered where seniors are now drawing less pay than their juniors.

As regards merger of scales, the employees in the lower scales have got the benefit of higher GP, as recommended by the 6CPC. With the subsequent upgradation of 6500-10500 to 7450-11500, the GP of 5000 & 5500 should have been logically brought down from 4200 to 3600 (40% of 9000).

Thanks Mr. Victor,
What about my other doubt of employees getting two increment in a single year i.e. employees whose date of increment was between Feb and June, got two increments whereas in my case I got single increment on 1.7.2006 in the revised pay rules. How this anomaly could be sorted out? Employees whose date of increment was in January in the pre revised scales also got two increments in 2006. Why not the same benefit has been extended to other employees with date of increment was between Aug and Dec.

I think stepping up the pay on par with the junior is solution which is being adopted in many departments
