The 6th pay Commission had revised the pay of Stenographers 'C' and Assistants of Subordinate offices (also Jr Hindi translators) to 6500-10500 (from 5000-8000/5500-9000). This act has nothing to do with the common merger of 5000, 5500, and 6500. But the Government has denied the fixation benefits by a specific order in the scale of 6500-10500 and directly placed them in PB2 with GP 4200. The reply by the government side for denying the representation (through the minutes published in the Ministry of Pers. site) is that the benefit of fixation in 6500 to these class of employees has already been given by extending their G.P. which is based on the 40% of the highest pay of the 5th pay commission scale which should have been 40% of 8000 i.e., 3200 but the Government has given them 4200 i.e., 40% of 10500 thereby fixing them in 6500-10500.

Now that the Government has revised the grade pay of those posts which carry 6500-10500 pre-revised scale to 4600 from 4200. Many of the subordinate offices are not implementing this. Can any one clarify whether the sunographers 'C', Assistants of Subordinate offices should be placed in Grade Pay of 4600 with effect from the date of the order (somehwere in Sep.09). Has it been done in any offices? Can any one send me the copy of such order to sa8298@gamail.com. Please reply urgently.
