DoPT: Stepping up of pay-Consolidated guidelines

DoPT: Stepping up of pay-Consolidated guidelines

No.4/3/20 17-Estt(Pay-I)
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions
Department of Personnel and Training

North Block, New Delhi,
Dated the 26th October, 2018

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject:- Stepping up of pay-Consolidated guidelines-reg.

The undersigned is directed to say that the issue of anomaly relating to senior Government employees drawing less pay than their juniors due to application of provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1) is considered on merits for allowing stepping up pay of the seniors so as to bring it at par with that of the junior in accordance with the guidelines scattered in various OMs noted in the margin. A need has been felt to consolidate guidelines on stepping up of pay at one place keeping in view the provisions of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, [in short CCS(RP)Rules, 2016] as the frequent references on such issues continue to be received in this Department.

2. Consequent upon implementation of CCS(RP)Rules, 2016, the President is pleased to decide the following:

(i) In order to remove the anomaly of a Government servant promoted or appointed to a higher post on or after 1-1-2016 drawing lower pay in that post than another Government servant junior to him in the lower grade and promoted or appointed subsequently to another identical post, the pay of the senior Government servant in the higher post should be stepped up to a figure equal to the pay as fixed for the junior Government servant in that higher post. The stepping up should be done with effect from the date of promotion or appointment of the junior Government servant and will be subject to the following conditions, namely:

(a) both the junior and the senior Government servants should belong to the same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted are identical in the same cadre;

(b) the Level in the Pay Matrix of the lower and higher posts in which they are entitled to draw pay should be identical;

(c) the anomaly is directly as a result of the application of the provisions of Fundamental Rule 22(I)(a)(1) read with Rule 13 of CCS(RP)Rules, 2016. For example, if the junior officer was drawing
more pay in the existing pay structure than the senior by virtue of any advance increments granted to him, the provisions of this subrule should not be invoked to step up the pay of the senior officer.

(ii) The order relating to re-fixation of the pay of the senior officer in accordance with clause (i) shall be issued under Fundamental Rule 27 and the senior officer shall be entitled to the next increment on completion of his required qualifying service with effect from the date of re-fixation of pay.

3. The following instances/events wherein juniors draw more pay than seniors, do not constitute anomaly and, therefore, stepping up of pay will not be admissible in such events:

(a) Where a senior proceeds on Extra Ordinary Leave which results in postponement of his Date of Next Increment in the lower post and consequently he starts drawing less pay than his junior in the lower grade itself. He, therefore, cannot claim pay parity on promotion even though he may be promoted earlier to the higher grade than his junior(s);

(b) If a senior forgoes/refuses promotion leading to his junior being promoted/appointed to the higher post earlier and the junior draws higher pay than the senior.

(c) If the senior is on deputation while junior avails of the ad-hoc promotion in the cadre, the increased pay drawn by the junior due to ad-hoc/officiating and/or regular promotion following such adhoc promotion in the higher posts vis-à-vis senior, is not an anomaly in strict sense of the term;

(d) If a senior joins the higher post later than the junior, for whatsoever reasons, whereby he starts drawing less pay than the junior. In such cases, senior cannot claim stepping up of pay at par with that
of his junior.

(e) If a senior is appointed later than the junior in the lower post itself whereby he is in receipt of lesser pay than the junior, in such cases also the senior cannot claim pay parity in the higher post if he draws less pay than his junior though he may have been promoted earlier to the higher post.

(f) Where an employee is promoted from lower post to a higher post, his pay is fixed with reference to the pay drawn by him in the lower post under FR22(I)(a)(1) read with Rule 13 of CCS(RP)Rules, 2016 and due to his longer length of service in the lower grade, his pay may get fixed at a higher stage than that of a senior direct recruit appointed to the same higher grade and whose pay is fixed under different set of rules. For example a Senior Secretariat Assistant (SSA) on promotion to the post of Assistant Section Officer (ASO) gets his pay fixed under FR 22(I)(a)(1) with reference to the pay drawn in the post of SSA, whereas the pay of ASO(DR) is fixed under Rule 8 of CCS(RP)Rules, 2016 at the minimum pay or the first Cell in the Level, applicable to ASO to which he is appointed. In such a case, the senior ASO (DR) cannot claim pay parity with that of the promotee junior ASO.

(g) Where a senior is appointed in higher post on ad-hoc basis and is drawing less pay than his junior who is appointed in the same cadre and in same post on ad-hoc basis subsequently, the senior cannot claim pay parity with reference to the pay of that junior since the ad-hoc officiating service in higher post is reversible and also since full benefits of FR22(I)(a)(I) are not available on ad-hoc promotion but only on regular promotion following such ad-hoc promotion without break.

(h) Where a junior gets more pay due to additional increments earned on acquiring higher qualifications.

Note: The above instances/events are only illustrative and not exhaustive.

4. These orders shall be in supersession of D/o Expenditure’s OM No.F.2(78)-E.III(A)63 dated 2nd February, 1966 and DOP&T’s OM No.4/7/92-Estt(Pay-I) dated 4th November, 1993.

5. This OM is effective from 0 1.01.2016.

6. In so far as persons serving in the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned, these orders have been issued after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

7. Hindi version will follow.

Dated: 11th October, 2018

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Clarification on modalities of transfer of the NPS contribution to casual labourer with temporary status to their GPF accounts.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s 0M No.51016/2/90-Estt (C) dated the 10th September, 1993 vide which a scheme for grant of temporary status to the casual employees was framed. The scheme applied to those casual labourers who were in employment on the date of the issue of the 0M and had rendered one year of continuous service in Central Government offices, which meant that they must have been engaged for a period of at least 240 days (206 days in the of offices observing days week). The scheme did not apply to Departments of Telecom & posts and Ministry of Railways.

2. As the scheme, after rendering three years’ continuous service after conferment of temporary status, the casual labourers were to be treated at par with temporary Group ‘D’ employees for the purpose of contribution to the General Provident Fund. Further, after their regularisation, of the service rendered under temporary status was to counted for of retirement benefits.

3. As per para 8 of the scheme, two out of every three vacancies in Group ‘D’ in respective offices where the casual labourers had been working was to be filled up as per extant recruitment rules and in accordance with the instructions issued by Department of Personnel and Training from amongst casual workers with temporary status. However, regular Group ‘D’ staff rendered surplus for any reason would have prior claim for absorption against existing/future vacancies.

4. Vide the O.M. No.49014/1/2004 -Estt.(C) dated the 26th April, 2004, the above scheme was reviewed in light of introduction of New Pension Scheme in respect of appointed to the Central Government service on or after 1.1.2004. These casual labourers with temporary Status were now to be considered under the NPS and their underlying amount in GPI was credited to them.

5. The 0M dated 26th April, 2004 was quashed by various benches of CAT/High Courts who had decided that the scheme could not modified retrospectively.

6. The position was reviewed in the light of the Court judgements in consultation with the Department of Expenditure. It was then decided vide this Department’s O.M. No. 49014/2/2014- Estt(C) dated 26.02.2016 and 0M. No. dated 28.07.2016 that the casual labourers who had been granted temporary status under the scheme, and have completed 3 years of continuous service after that were entitled to contribute to the General Provident Fund. It was also decided that of the service rendered under temporary status would be counted for the purpose of retirement benefits in respect of those casual labourers who have been regularised in terms of para 8 of the 0M dated 10.09. 1993. This was applicable to all casual labourers covered under the scheme Of 1993 whether they were regularised before or after 31.12.2003.

7. It was emphasised that the benefit of temporary status is available only to those casual labourers who were in employment on the date of the issue of the 0M dated 10th Septetmber, 1993 and were otherwise eligible for it. No grant of temporary status is permissible after that date. The employees erroneously granted temporary status between 10.09.1993 and the date of Hon’ble Supreme Court judgement in Union Of India And Anr vs Mohan Pal. 2002 (3) SCR 613, delivered on April, 2002, will however be deemed to have covered under the scheme of 10.09.93.

8. Subsequent to the issue of this Department’s O. M. 49014/2/2014-Esst(C) dated 26.02.2016 and O.M. No. 49014/2/2014-Estt(C) dated 28.07.2016 several Ministries/ Departments were seeking clarifications as regards to the modalities of transfer of the amount lying in the NPS account to the GPF account of these casual labourers. The matter has been examined in consultation with D/o Pensions & Pensioners’ Welfare, D/o Financial Services and D/o Expenditure.

9. D/o Pension and Pensioners’ Welfare have clarified/ stated that the employees’ share or the NPS subscription with interest should withdrawn and deposited in the GPE accounts if these CL-TS regularized after 31.12.2003 and the Government share with interest accrued under NPS should be deposited in Government’s account.

10. Controller General of Accounts (CGA) have furnished following clarifications vide letter No. dt 11.03.2016 on a similar matter which are as under:

(i) Adjustment of Employees contribution in Accounts:- Amount may be credited to individual GPF Account and the account may he recasted permitting up-to-dare interest (Authority-FR-16 & Rule / of GPF Rules)

(ii) Adjustment Of Government contribution under NPS in Accounts. TO be accounted for as (-) Dr. to object heads Recoveries under major Head 2071- Pension and Other Retirement benefit-Minor Head 911- Deduct Recoveries Of over payment (GAR 35 and para 3.10 of List of Major and Minor Heads of Accounts)

(iii) Adjustment of increased value of subscription on account of appreciation of investment- may be for crediting the amount Govt. account under Contribution towards pensions and other Retirement Benefits 800- Other Receipts (Note under the above Head in LMMHA).

11. The principle underlying the consideration of the case of CL(TS) is that Casual labourers Who were covered under the scheme Of 1993 and have been regularised in terms Of the above scheme were entitled to GPF and Old Pension scheme even if they were regularised after 31.12,2003.
