OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Sub : Fixation of the pay of the pre-revised pay scale of 1S scale granted to candidates appointed as trainees on compassionate grounds in the Seventh Central Pay Commission (7th CPC) – reg.

The undersigned is directed to invite attention to this Department’s 0.M.No.14014/02/2012-Estt(D) dated 16.01.2013 containing consolidated instructions on the subject of compassionate appointments. With regard to appointment of candidates not immediately meeting the educational standards as trainees these instructions provide as under:-

“In exceptional circumstances Government may consider recruiting persons not immediately meeting the minimum educational standards. Government may engage them as trainees who will be given the regular pay bands and grade pay only on acquiring the minimum qualification prescribed under the recruitment rules. The emoluments of these trainees, during the period of their training and before they are absorbed in the Government as employees, will be governed by the minimum of the – 1S pay band Rs.4440-7440 without any grade pay. In addition, they will be granted all applicable Allowance, like Dearness Allowances, House Rent Allowance and Transport Allowance at the admissible rates. The same shall be calculated on the minimum -IS pay band without any grade pay. The period spent in the -1S pay band by the future recruits will not be counted as service for any purpose as their regular service will start only after they are placed in the pay band PB-1 or Rs.5200-20200 along with grade pay of Rs.1800.”

2. The 7th CPC has not provided any replacement scale for 1S pay, band of Rs.4440- 7440 without any grade pay which is granted to trainees appointed under the scheme for compassionate appointment. The matter was taken up with the Department of Expenditure and it has now been decided by the Government that Level-1 of the Pay Matrix introduced on implementation of the 7th CPC Report be the replacement for the pre-revised- 1S scale. The pay of those governed by the 1S scale may be revised by using the Fitment Factor of 2.57 for placement in Level-1 in conformity with the Rule, 7 of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016. All pre – revised pay stages lower than pre-revised pay of Rs.7,000 in the pre-revised 1S scale shall not be considered for determining the benefit of bunching, on the same lines as has been clarified by this Department’s 0.M dated 03.08.2017 on application of the benefit on account of bunching.

3. This will be effective from 01.01.2016.

Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers

Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers

F.No.7/1/2017-CS-I(A)(Pt.)
Government of India

2nd Floor, Lok Nayak Bhawan
Khan Market, New Delhi – 3
Dated 27.02.17

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Bunching of stages in the Revised pay structure in the grade of Assistant Section Officers – Reg.

DoP&T has been receiving many references from various Ministries/ Departments seeking clarification on the issue of grant of bunching to Assistant Section Officers of Central Secretariat Service in terms of Department of Expenditure’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

2. It has also been noticed that there have been divergent views on the matter that while some Ministries/ Departments have given the benefit on their own, some other Ministries/ Departments have sought clarifications on various issues they are facing while giving the benefit of bunching in terms of DoE’s O.M. dated 07.09.16.

3. The matter has been taken up for further clarifications with Establishment Division/ Department of Expenditure briefly on the following issues:

i. While the Seventh Pay Commission had not prescribed different modes of pay fixation for Direct Recruit (DR) and Promotee ASOs, there have been two different modes of pay fixation for DR and Promotees prior to implementation of Seventh pay Commission. Due to differential methods of pay fixation, required differential of 3% is not calculable based on seniority alone as the other relevant facts of being DR/Promotee comes into play here.

ii. The manner of different pay fixation for DR ASO and promotee Assistants has been challenged in various court cases (viz. OA No.2147/2015, OA No. 150/2016, OA No.1015/2013 and OA No.476/2015 etc.)

4. It has already been decided to consult Department of Expenditure through Establishment (PEW) in the matter and same is under examination. Therefore, to ensure uniform implementation of Department of Expenditure’s instruction, all the Ministries/ Departments are advised to wait for further instructions with regard to grant of bunching benefits to ASOs of CSS and also if orders have already been issued by any Ministry/ Department, the same may not be given effect till further instructions.

5. This issues with the approval of competent authority.

No. 2/6/2016-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 17th February 2016 delegates powers to Ministries / Departments / borrowing organisations, to extend deputation tenures up to a period of 7 years in a stretch, in respect of cases covered by the O.M. dated 17th June 2010. However, there has been no modification of the Para 8.3.2. of the O.M. dated 17th June 2010 by the O.M. dated 17th February 2016. The new O.M. dated 17th February 2016 provides vide Para 4 that all other terms and conditions issued vide OM No. 6/8/2009-Estt.(Pay-II) dated 17th June 2010 will remain unchanged.

5. Thus, admissibility of Deputation (Duty) Allowance would be only as per Para 8.3.2 of the O.M. dated 17th June 2010, i.e. only up to the fifth year, if the deputationist has opted to draw Deputation (Duty) Allowance.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Instructions on sealed cover procedure – where  Government servant has been acquitted but appeal is  contemplated/pending – clarification regarding.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s O.M. No.

dated 27.08.1991 of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Union of India
v/ s K.V. Jankiraman etc. (AIR 1991 SC 2010). References have been
received seeking clarification with regard to the course of action in cases
where the Government servant is acquitted by trial court but an appeal
against the judgment is either contemplated or has been filed. This issue
has been examined in the light of various court judgements including Bank
of India and another vs. Degala Suryanarayana, Appeal (Civil) 3053-54 of
1997, (1999) 5 SCC 762 in consultation with Department of Legal Affairs
and it is clarified as following:

ii. In the order of promotion a mention may however be made that the promotion is provisional subject to the outcome of appeal that may be filed against, the acquittal of the Government servant. The promotion thus will be without prejudice to the action that may be taken if the judgement of the trial court acquitting the Government
servant is set-aside.

a. The provisional promotion shall be deemed non est, and the Government servant shall stand reverted;

7th Central Pay Commission recommendations -amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules

No. AB-14017/13//2016-Estt(RR)-Pt
Government of India
Ministry of Personnel P.G & pensions
Department of Personnel and Training

North Block, New Delhi
Dated: 18.01.2017

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations -amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Departments OM No AB.14017/61/2008-Estt. (RR) dated 24/03/2009 regarding amendment of Service Rules/ Recruitment Rules in pursuance of Sixth Pay Commission’s recommendations. The revised pay structure recommended by 6th CPC and approved by the Government included a number of ‘merged grades’ with a common Pay Band and Grade Pay.

2. In order to regulate the service rendered in the pre-revised scale where there have been merger of more than one grade into one with a single grade pay, it was advised that a Note to the following effect may be inserted under relevant columns in the Schedule of RRs and under relevant provisions in Service Rules.

“Note: For the purpose of computing minimum qualifying service for promotion, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission. For purposes of appointment on deputation/ absorption basis, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the recommendations of the Commission except where there has been merger of more than one pre-revised scale of pay into one grade with a common grade pay/pay scale, and where this benefit will extend only for the post(s) for which that grade pay/pay scale is the normal replacement grade without any upgradation.”

3. It has been observed that after implementation of 7th CPC there are only a few cases of merger/upgradation of pay scale. However in cases where merger/ upgradation of pay is recommended in the 7th CPC and the same has been accepted, there is a need to provide a Note on similar lines as above with relevant changes i.e. the date 1.1.2006 needs to be replaced with 1.1.2016 and “6th CPC” is to be replaced with “7th CPC”. In other cases the Note as referred above need not to be prescribed in the RRs/SRs where no merger/ upgradation are involved as per 7th CPC recommendations.
