Department of Expenditure,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and feeder posts in a common grade – Fixation of Pay – Reg.

Ref.: MoF(Deptt. of Exp.)’s OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2-1/2015-E.III (A) dated 16.10.2015

Kindly call for my earlier letter of even number dated 18th January, 2018(copy enclosed), through which your kind attention was drawn towards MoF(Deptt. of Exp.)’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation, instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM supra dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010. As they were not aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation under Rule-13 would be extended in future as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, then they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates promotion/ financial upgradation, as per the option provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010.

Further, as per instruction of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008.

However, benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant(RP) Rules, 2008, with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006, by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010 (as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions contained in Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue, seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above-mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP)Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this clarification to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance).

Earlier, in similar cases, whenever Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM brings about a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to revised pay structure/unforeseen developments and change of rule in terms of the CCS(Revised Pay) Rules, opportunity to revise their option to come over to revised pay structure has always been given(as it was given through Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 03.11.2013).

Also, it is also is heard that, DoPT is agreed that, re-fixation of pay for merged post under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules-2008, on the basis of Department of Expenditure’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated-16.10.2015, were unforeseen developments/change of rule. This brings a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to the revised pay structure.

Hence, it is very clear that, Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, brings a material change in the basis for exercise of option to come over to revised pay structure, unforeseen developments and change of rule in terms of the Railway Services(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. Hence, it is demanded that, opportunity to revise their option to come over to revised pay structure, under the rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, w.e.f. 01.01.2006, may be given to those employees who are covered under the said letter dated 16.10.2015, as it is more beneficial for them as now.

In view of the above, it is requested that, necessary clarifications in this regard may kindly be communicated to all the Ministries/Departments of the Government of India, so that, aggrieved staff can get an opportunity to re-exercise their option, under Rule-6 of the CCS(RP) Rule, 2008, to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, w.e.f. 01.01.2006, and get benefit of pay fixation provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, so as to avoid financial loss to the affected staff.

Sincerely Yours,

Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 – Entry pay for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 and pay fixation in the case of persons other than such direct recruits

Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 – Entry pay for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 and pay fixation in the case of persons other than such direct recruits

No. 8-23/2017 – E.IIIA
Government of India
Ministry of Finance
Department of Expenditure

North Block, New Delhi
28th September, 2018

Office Memorandum

Subject: Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 – Section II of the Part ‘A’ of the First Schedule thereto – entry pay for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 and pay fixation in the case of persons other than such direct recruits.

The undersigned is directed to invite the attention to the provisions contained in Section-2 of Part ‘A’ of the First Schedule of the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 which provides for entry pay in the revised pay structure (pay structure effective from 1.1.2006 up to 31.12.2015) for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 on a post and to say that pay in respect of persons appointed to the same posts before 1.1.2006 is required to be fixed as on 1.1.2006 under Rule 7 (1)(A)(i) and pay in respect persons appointed on the same post on promotion on or after 1.1.2006 is required to be fixed under Rule 13 thereof.

2. A number of references were received in Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure, stating that the pay of seniors of a post was fixed at a stage lower than the entry pay applicable to the persons appointed on direct recruitment basis on that post on or after 1.1.2006. In such cases, stepping of pay was allowed to the senior employee at par with the entry pay of direct recruits of those posts, subject to the conditions, inter-alia, that stepping up of pay of seniors is applicable only in those cases which have an element of direct recruitment and where a directly recruited junior is actually drawing more basic pay than the seniors. Thus, the stepping up of pay of senior employees was admissible from the date a junior direct recruit joined on or after 1.1.2006.

3. The matter was also considered in the meeting of the National Anomaly Committee (NAC) held on 17.7.2012 based on a demand raised by the Staff Side under the JCM. NAC had recommended that in cases where Recruitment Rules provide for direct recruitment, then the stepping up of pay of senior may be considered, even if no actual direct recruitment takes place or no direct recruit has actually joined. However, it was decided that stepping up of the pay of seniors can be claimed only in the case of those cadres which have an element of direct recruitment and in cases where a directly recruited junior is actually drawing more basic pay than the seniors. Thus, stepping up of pay was dependent upon actual joining of a direct recruit.

4. Trained Graduate Teachers (TGTs) of the Government of National Capital Territories of Delhi (GNCTD) filed an OA No. 3217/2014 before the Hon’ble Principal Bench of CAT. The 13 petitioners of the post of Trained Graduate Teachers (TGT) comprised those who were appointed as TGT before 1.1.2006 as also those who were promoted to the post of TGT on or after 1.1.2006. The pay of these 13 employees had been fixed as per the relevant provisions of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 and the same happened to be lower than the entry pay as applicable to direct recruits of the post of TGT appointed on or after 1.1.2006. These petitioners prayed for re-fixing their pay as applicable to direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006.

5. The Hon’ble Principal Bench of CAT in their order dated 4.4.2016 in OA No.3217/2014 allowed the application and directed the Government to ensure that none of the applicant’s pay is fixed at a stage lower than the pay which could be drawn by a direct recruit appointed on or after 1.1.2006. The order of Hon’ble CAT dated 4.4.2016 was upheld by the Hon’ble Delhi High Court in terms of their order dated 23.3.2017 in WP(C ) No.2634/2017. The Hon’ble Delhi High Court in its order dated 23.3.2017 observed, inter-alia, that the plea of stepping up of pay, as mentioned in para 2 above, means that the direct recruits should have actually joined before any stepping up of pay can be granted and the date of joining would be different as filling up of direct recruit vacancies in the cadre would depend upon vacancy position, selection etc. The Hon’ble Delhi High Court held that this was unacceptable.

6. The matter arising out of the aforesaid order of Hon’ble Delhi High Court dated 23.3.2017 was heard by the Hon’ble Supreme Court as part of the SLP and in its order dated 01.09.2017 (Dy. No. 23663/2017), the Hon’ble Supreme Court has observed that once the question, in principle, has been settled, it is only appropriate on the part of the Government to issue a Circular. The Hon’ble Supreme Court further observed that the present situation is that the stepping up is available only to those who have approached the Court, but since the issue otherwise became final, the Hon’ble Supreme Court directed Government to immediately look into the matter and issue appropriate orders.

7. Accordingly, the matter has been considered in the light of the above background and in the context of the specific orders of Hon’ble Supreme Court dated 01.09.2017 as arising out of the original issue raised by the Trained Graduated Teachers of GNCTD in terms of their OA No. 3217/2014. As mentioned above, the petitioners in that case were those who were appointed as TGT before 1.1.2006 and also promoted as TGT on or after 1.1.2006, and had occasion for grievance because their pay in the pay structure in vogue from 1.1.2006 had been fixed lower than the entry pay as prescribed for direct recruits appointed as TGT on or after 1.1.2006. Therefore, the principle of the benefit of pay fixation, as flowing from the aforesaid orders of Hon’ble CAT, Hon’ble Delhi High Court and the Hon’ble Supreme Court, is that the pay of those who were appointed to the post prior to 1.1.2006 and those who were appointed to the post on promotion in the pay structure effective from 1.1.2006 onwards, and where in respect of such posts entry pay for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 has been prescribed giving rise to differential pay, may not be lower than the said entry pay. It is the case of differential pay in respect of employees of a post, as caused by the existence of entry pay applicable for direct recruits on that post appointed on or after 1.1.2006, that has been addressed in the aforesaid case of the post of TGTs. In case entry pay as per Section II of Part A of the First Schedule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 is not applicable in case of a post, the same will not give rise to differential pay for holders of the post and, hence, not covered under the ratio of the case of TGT.

8. Accordingly, the President is pleased to decide that in respect of those posts where entry pay for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006, as per Section II of Part A of the First Schedule of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, becomes applicable by virtue of the provision of the element of direct recruitment in the relevant recruitment rules, the pay of Central government employees who were appointed to such posts prior to 1.1.2006 and whose pay, as fixed in the revised pay structure under Rule 7 thereof as on 1.1.2006 turns out to be lower than the prescribed entry pay for direct recruits of that post, shall not be less than such entry pay w.e.f. 1.1.2006. Likewise, the pay of Central Government employees who were appointed to such posts by way of promotion on or after 1.1.2006 and whose pay, as fixed under Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, happens to be lower than the said entry pay, shall also not be less than such entry pay from the date of their promotion taking place on or after 1.1.2006.

9. In their application to the employees of office of Indian Audits and Accounts Department, these orders issue after consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.

10. Hindi version of these orders is attached.

Fixation of pay in respect of employees appointed on or after 01.01.2006 in the Grade of 4280 (PR)

Fixation of pay of an employee appointed on or after 01.01.2006 in the Grade of 4280 (PR) – J&K

GOVERNMENT OF JAMMU AND KASHMIR
FINANCE DEPARTMENT

Civil Secretariat, Srinagar/Jammu

O.M. No. A/35 (09)-560

Dated: 16 -08-2018

Subject:- Fixation of pay in respect of employees appointed on or after 01.01.2006 in the Grade of 4280 (PR).

Doubts have been expressed by various quarters regarding fixation of pay of an employee appointed to the post carrying Grade Pay of 4210,4220,4240,4260 and 4280 in PB-3- 9300-34800 (PR), on or after 01.01.2006 in terms of SRO 266 of 2009 dated 31.08.2009 read with SRO 42 of 2011.

The issue has been examined in the Finance Department and it has been observed that consequent to notification of Jammu & Kashmir Civil Services (Revised) Pay Rules, 2009 vide SRO 93 of 2009 dated 15.04.2009, the pre-revised pay scales of 5000-8000, 5150-8300, 5500­9000,5600-9100, 5700-10100 and 6500-10500 were clubbed into single PB-2 – 9300-34800 (PR) with common Grade Pay of 4200. This created practical impediments in making appointments to various posts under these pre-revised pay scales/ Grade Pays, particularly in making promotions both functional or in-situ from one Grade Pay to another within the scales so clubbed. The promotion within these scales would mean nothing except change of designation.

In order to overcome the bottlenecks coming in the way of making appointments or promotions in these pre-revised scales, Grade Pays of 4210,4220,4240,4260 and 4280 were introduced to pave way for promotion from one post to another scale.

Accordingly, it is clarified that the newly incorporated Grade Pays viz 4210,4220,4240,4260 and 4280 under SRO 42 of 2011 are applicable to all employees in the revised pay structure, but as far as the applicability of ready reckoner attached to said SRO is concerned, same is relevant for pay revision of employees who have been appointed before 01.01.2006, and were holding these posts on 01.01.2006 to arrive at their revised pay on 01.01.2006 in the revised pay structure in accordance with Rule 7 of J&K Civil Services (Revised) Pay Rules, 2009.

It is also clarified that SRO 42 of 2011 is not an amendment to Rule (8) of Jammu & Kashmir Civil Services (Revised) Pay Rules, 2009, prescribing fixation of pay of direct entrants to Government service on or after 01.01.2006, but is an insertion/ substitution of new Grade Pays in Section-I of first schedule attached to Jammu & Kashmir Civil Services (Revised) Pay Rules, 2009 against S.Nos 11 to 16 of Pay Band-2.

All Head of Circles
All Head of Regions

Subject: Grant of benefit of pay fixation at time of promotion to Inspector posts.

Sir/Madam,

I am directed to say that references from various Circles are being received in Directorate seeking clarification on fixation of pay of the Postal Assistants, who have already been granted benefit of financial upgradation under MACP scheme, on their promotion as Inspector posts on the basis of LDCE. Further, consequent upon upgradation of grade pay of Inspector posts to Rs. 4600/- w.e.f. 01.01.2006, disparity in fixation of pay by different Circles has also been noticed by the Directorate while re-fixing pay of Inspector Posts posted in Directorate to the extent that in similar case some Circles have granted promotional increment to the officials who have been granted financial upgradation under MACPs, while others have not allowed, presumably invoking para 4 of Annexure I to MACP guidelines

2. The matter has been examined in consultation with Establishment Division of Directorate and it has been decided to convey that Inspector Posts is not in a regular promotional hierarchy of Postal Assistant and they can become Inspector Posts only on attaining merit in Competitive Examination. As such, 3% fitment benefit should be allowed to officials at the time of fixation of pay on promotion to the post of Inspector (Limited Departmental Competitive Examination) even after availing financial upgradation under MACP.

3. This may be brought to notice of all concerned.

Yours faithfully,

It is clarified that the option for fixation of pay in the revised pay structure after the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rules 2016 i.e. after 25.7.2016 cannot be exercised, as Rule 5 of the said Rules provides for option only for promotion taking place up to 25.07.2016 (date of notification of the said Rules).

3. This issues with the approval of Joint Secretary (Personnel).

Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held posts below Commissioned Officer Rank in Defence Forces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts in Railways etc

NFIR

No. 11/35/2018

Dated: 11/04/2018

The Secretary,
Department of Personnel & Training,
North Block,
Central Secretariat,
New Delhi-110001

Dear Sir,

Sub: Initial pay fixation of re-employed ex-servicemen who held posts below Commissioned Officer Rank in Defence Forces, retired before attaining the age of 55 years and have been appointed on re-employment basis in civilian posts in Railways etc – reg.

Ref: (i) General Secretary/NFIR’s letter No. I1/35/Part XIV dated 29/01/2018 addressed to the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India.
(ii) PMO ID No. PMOPG/D/2018/0044515 dated 02/02/2018 addressed to the Secretary, DoP&T and copy to the Federation.

The Federation desires to invite kind attention of the DoP&T to the reference made by the General Secretary, NFIR vide letter No. II/35/Part XIV dated 29/01/2018 (addressed to the Hon’ble Prime Minister) on the subject matter, the same has however, been forwarded by the PMO vide ID No. PMOPG/D/2018/0044515 dated 02/02/2018 for taking further action and conveying the outcome to the Federation.

In this connection, Federation once again brings to the notice of the DoP&T that injustice is being meted out to the former Defence Forces Personnel (PBORs), reemployed in Railways and other Central services on account of the fact that the pay drawn by them at the time of retirement from Defence Forces (prior to attaining 55 years age) has not been protected on their re-employment, while those retired Defence Forces Personnel on re-employment in the Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) of Central/State Governments have been granted the benefit of pay fixation on the last pay drawn at the time of retirement from Armed Forces. The discrimination has resulted disappointment and frustration among the reemployed retired Armed Forces Personnel in Railways and Central Civil Services.

This subject was dealt by the National Federation of Indian Railwaymen (NFIR), at the level of Railway Ministry in the negotiating fora of PNM, demanding pay re-fixation in favour of re-employed Defence Forces Personnel on the basis of last pay drawn more particularly those who have been re-employed on and after 01/01/2006. On a reference made by Railway Ministry vide O.M. No. E(G)2013/EM 1-5 dated 07/12/2016, the DoP&T had however not agreed for reckoning last pay drawn for pay re-fixation on re-employment in railways. The Federation encloses a copy of Railway Ministry OM dated 07/12/2016 to the DoP&T and reply thereon received from DoP&T vide OM dated 21/02/2017.

Federation also states that DoP&T vide OM dated 18th Oct 2017 called for suggestions for finding single methodology for pay re-fixation of all the ex-servicemen including PBORs, commissioned officers, ex-competent clerks/storemen, NFIR vide letter of even no. dated 21/12/2017 has submitted valid suggestions to the Secretary, Ministry of Defence, Dept of Ex-Servicemen, Welfare, South Block, New Delhi, as follows:-

(a) Considering the crucial role of Defence Forces Personnel in safeguarding the Nation’s borders, they be given pay fixation on the basis of their last pay drawn on re-employment in the Railways and other Central Government Departments.

(b) Their pension needs to be totally ignored as the pension is the social security net provided in recognition to their loyal services to the nation.

(c) The PBORs are not the Personnel of high rankings with higher wages, therefore their case needs to be considered with sympathy and their last pay drawn at the time of retirement from armed forces, to be treated as entry pay on re-employment in Railways and Central Government Departments.

(d) Alternatively, the number of years service rendered by the PBORs in Armed Forces be taken into account for granting pay fixation duly adding the quantum of equal number of increments to the minimum pay of the re-employed post. This may be made applicable to all PBORs who have joined Central Government Departments after 01/01/2006.

(e) In those cases of PBORs retired before attaining the age of 55 years and got re-employment in Government services, their initial pay on re-employment may be fixed at the minimum of the scale of pay prescribed for the post and after fixing the pay, in case the initial pay so fixed, is found to be less than the last pay drawn in the Armed Forces, all such cases may be treated as “cases of undue hardship” and in those cases, their pay may be re-fixed at higher stage duly granting one increment for each year of service rendered in the Armed Forces in order to bring their initial pay at par with the pre-retirement pay, while their pension already drawn be continued un-altered.

NFIR, therefore, requests to kindly see that the above legitimate request of former Defence Forces Personnel is agreed to and orders issued soon. Federation also requests to kindly communicate the action taken in the matter early.

DA/As above

Yours sincerely,
S/d,

Re-fixation of pay of Running Staff in 7th CPC pay level

Re-fixation of pay of Running Staff in 7th CPC pay level-reg.

NFIR

 No.I/2/Part IV

Dated: 02/04/2018

The Secretary (E),
Railway Board,
New Delhi

 

Dear Sir,
Sub: Re-fixation of pay of Running Staff in 7th CPC pay level-reg.
Ref: (i) NFIR’s PNM Item No. 05/2017.
(ii) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VII/2016/IC/2 dated 21/08/2017 (RBE No. 99/2017)
(iii) NFIR’s letter No. I/2/Part IV dated 20/02/2018.
(iv) Railway Board’s letter No. PC-VIII/2017/R-U/37 dated 07/03/2018 addressed to GS/NFIR.

With reference to reply received from Railway Board vide letter dated 07/03/2018. Federation cites below the specific cases where the running staff promoted during the period July and December, 2016 have not been granted pay re-fixation duly obtaining their option.

 

(i) On Raipur Division of South East Central Railway, 53 Guard (Goods) PB-I + GP 2800/- were promoted to Senior Guard (Goods) in PB-2 + GP 4200/- on dated 29/07/2016. A copy of notification issued by the Sr. DPO, Raipur Division on 27/07/2016 is enclosed as Annexure to this letter.

 

(ii) Similarly, 127 Assistant Loco Pilot in PB-I + GP 2400/- were promoted to Loco Pilot (Goods) PB-2 + GP 4200/- on 08th December, 2016 on Kota Division on West Central Railway.

 

Federation also visualizes that there might be similar cases of Running and other category staff on the different Divisions/Zones where the re-option opportunity not given, resulting loss of fixation benefit.

In this connection, Federation desires to state that in the above situations, the staff were eligible to be continued in the 6th CPC grade pay on promotion and equally opt for a date from which, they should be switched over to 7th CPC pay. These staff when submitted their options to the respective Administrations, they were denied the pay fixation after promotion date, though permissible under the rules. Cases cited above are sufficient to prove that injustice has been done to those promoted in between July and December, 2016 by denying option for pay fixation in 7th CPC pay level after the date of promotion.

 

NFIR therefore, once again requests the Railway Board to issue clear; classificatory instructions to the Zones, Production Units etc for allowing pay re-fixation in respect of staff who have been promoted during July-December, 2016 on the basis of their option/re-option.

A copy of instructions issued may be endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary.

PERMISSION TO OPTION FOR PAY FIXATION IN THE REVISED PAY STRUCTURE ON A DATE AFTER THE DATE OF ISSUE OF CCS (REVISED PAY) RULES 2016

Option for Pay Fixation in Revised Pay Scale: Confederation

PERMISSION TO OPT FOR PAY FIXATION IN THE REVISED PAY STRUCTURE ON A DATE AFTER THE DATE OF ISSUE OF CCS (REVISED PAY) RULES 2016 NOTIFICATION DATED 25.07.2016 DEMAND OF THE JCM NATIONAL COUNCIL STAFF SIDE REJECTED BY GOVERNMENT.

JCM national council, Staff Side, has demanded that under the existing orders the option to come over to revised pay structure from the date of promotion is available only for those employees who are promoted before 25.07.2016. The staff side has demanded that such an option of fixation of pay for coming over to revised pay scale may be given to employees promoted after 25.07.2016 also. The staff side has contended that not giving such an option to an employee who was due for promotion on a date after 25.07.2016 (say on 26.07.2016) will be discriminatory. Government has considered the demand and rejected. The following is the reply of the Finance Ministry, Department of Expenditure.

(M. Krishnan)
Secretary General

Mob: 09447068125

DEPARTMENT OF EXPENDITURE VIDE OM DATED 30.08.2017

The position on action taken in respect of item regarding permission to opt for pay fixation in the revised pay structure on a date after the issue of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 (notification on 25.07.2016) in the case of employees whose promotion becomes due after 25.07.2016 is given below:

In the said item the staff side has demanded that under the existing orders the option to come over to revised pay scale from the date of promotion is available only for those employees who are promoted before 25.07.2016, the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016. The staff side has demanded that such an option of fixation of pay for coming over to revised pay scale may be given to employees promoted after 25.07.2016 also. The staff side has contended that not giving such an option to an employee who was due for promotion on 26.07.2016 (one day after the date of notification) and afterwards will be discriminatory.

The revised Pay rules contained in CCS (RP) Rules 2016 are effective from 01.01.2016. A person holding a particular post as on 01.01.2016 has an option to come over to revised pay scale applicable to that post either straight away on 01.01.2016 or from a date later than that such an option is clearly mentioned in provisio 1 and provisio 2 of Rule 5. A combined reading of provisio 1 and provisio 2 to Rule 5 provided that a Government Servant may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until the date on which he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing pay structure or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in the existing pay structure.

But, in cases where a Government servant has been placed in a higher grade pay or scale between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016 on account of promotion or upgradation, the Government servant may elect to switch over to the revised pay structure from the date of such promotion or upgradation.

Therefore the rules provide while in respect of post held by a Government Servant as on 01.01.2016, the concerned Government Servant may elect to come over to revised pay scale applicable to that post either from 01.01.2016 or from a date later than 01.01.2016, in case he is promoted to a post not held by him on 01.01.2016 on a date later than that, then he can opt to come over to revised pay scale from the date of promotion provided such promotion takes place between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification. Thus the date of notification of the Rules on 25.07.2016 which are effective from 01.01.2016 is the outer limit for option in cases the option is from date of promotion. The similar was the provisions in the Rules pertaining to the 6th CPC in terms of CCs (RP) Rules 2008. This is the fair and time tested rule, as it seeks to allow option in case of promotion during the retrospective effect of the Rules. There has to be outer date and that date is the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2016, which is objective and of fair application. No such objective date beyond 25.07.2016 could be of fair application.

Accordingly it is not possible to agree to the demand of the staff-side.

Dear Sir,

Sub: Cases of promotion taking place in the pre-revised pay structure between 1.1.2006 and the date of notification of RS(RP)Rules, 2008 and the subsequent merger of the pre-revised pay scales of the promotional and feeder posts in a common grade – Fixation of Pay – Reg.

Ref.: (i) Deptt. of Expenditure, MoF’s OM No.7/14/2010-E.III(A) dated 05.07.2010 and OM No.F-2- 1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015

Through this missive, your kind attention is drawn towards Department of Expenditure’s OM No.-F-2-1/2015-E.III(A) dated 16.10.2015, whereby it was decided that, in cases where promotion took place in the pre-revised pay structure during the period between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and subsequently promotional grade merged with the feeder grade consequent upon promulgation of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, the benefit of pay fixation shall be allowed under Rule 13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008.

In this connection, it is stated that, some of the government employees, who have got promotion/financial upgradation between 01.01.2006 and date of notification of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, exercised their option to switch over to 6th CPC from the date of such promotion/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 as per option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010, as the same was more beneficial to them at that time. In this connection, it is pertinent to mention here that, initially they opted to switch over to revised pay structure w.e.f 01.01.2006 prior to issuance of OM dated 05.07.2010.

Now, as per instruction of the Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, the benefit of pay fixation is being allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, in those cases where promotional/financial upgradation took place in the pre-revised pay structure between 01.01.2006 and the date of notification of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 and who opted 6th CPC w.e.f. 01.01.2006.

However, it has to come to our knowledge that, the benefit of pay fixation allowed under Rule-13 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, as per the provision of Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, is not being extended to those employee who have opted to switched over to the Railway Servant (RP) Rules, 2008 with effect from the date of promotional/financial upgradation instead of 01.01.2006 by exercising the option made available vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010(as mentioned in para 2 above), although fulfilling other conditions for getting the benefit of fixation as per the instructions in Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015.

It has also come to our knowledge that, some of the Railways have made a reference on this issue seeking clarification regarding extending the benefit of the above mentioned fixation to these employees after providing opportunity for re-option to switched over to the RS(RP) 2008 (or CCS(RP) Rule, 2008) w.e.f. 01.01.2006 instead of any subsequent date opted earlier. It is also understood that, Railway Board (Ministry of Railways) has referred this issue of revision of option to switch over to the 6th CPC in view of unforeseen events etc. to the Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of finance). Despite elapse of more than 12 months, no response has been received in this regard from Deptt. of Expenditure(Ministry of Finance) to resolve the genuine demands of these employees.

In this connection, it is stated that as these are the unforeseen developments or change of rule, the opportunity to revise option for fixation under the Rule of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 may be given to these employees in these conditions, as it is more beneficial for them as now. Had they were aware with the fact that any such benefit of pay fixation would be extended in future (as has been provided vide Deptt of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015), they would not have exercised their option to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. from their respective dates of promotion/financial upgradation as per the option provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 05.07.2010.

In view of the above, you are requested to issue necessary clarifications in this regard to all the Ministries/Departments of the Government of India, so that, the aggrieved staff should get the opportunity to re-exercise their option under rule-6 of CCS(RP) Rule, 2008 to switch over to CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 w.e.f. 01.01.2006 and get the benefit of pay fixation provided vide Deptt. of Expenditure’s OM dated 16.10.2015, so as to avoid financial loss to the affected staff.

With Regards!

Dated the 09th October, 2017

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.

Contractual appointments in Government departments

Contractual appointments in Government departments 

The Government posts are to be filled in accordance with the recruitment rules. Wherever recruitment rules provide reemployment as a mode of recruitment or in cases of exigencies of work, retired Government servants are reappointed on contractual basis for a specific period.

The Central Civil Services (Fixation of Pay of re-employed Pensioners) orders, 1986 as amended from time to time govern the pay fixation of re-employed pensioners including the persons re-employed on contract basis, unless the contract provides otherwise. The interests of serving employees with regard to promotions/financial upgradations to higher post are taken care of by the respective service rules/regulations applicable to them.

This was stated by the Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Development of North Eastern Region (DoNER), MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy and Space Dr. Jitendra Singh in a written reply to a question by Shri M.P.Veerendra Kumar in the Rajya Sabha today.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Availability of option for fixation of pay on promotion from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) in the lower post and method of fixation of pay from DNI, if opted for, in context of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016-regarding.

Prior to implementation of 6th CPC Report, the pay fixation on promotion was governed by provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1). In 6th CPC context, the first part of FR 22(I)(a)(1) was replaced by Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. Similarly, consequent upon implementation of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 in 7th CPC context, the pay fixation on promotion is regulated by the provisions of Rule 13 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016. This rule regulates pay fixation on promotion if the same is opted by the employee from the date of promotion itself. The issue of relevancy of provisions of FR 22(I)(a)(1) as well as the methodology of fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying duties and responsibilities of greater importance, of a Government Servant in case he opts for pay fixation from the Date of Next Increment (DNI) has been considered in this Department.

2. In this context, proviso under FR 22(I)(a)(1) inter-alia provides that the Government Servant (other than those appointed on deputation basis to ex-cadre post or on ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) shall have the option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion or to have the pay fixed from the date of accrual of next increment in the scale of the pay in lower grade.

3. After due consideration in this matter, the President is pleased to decide as follows:

(i) FR 22(I)(a)(1) holds good with regard to availability of option clause for pay fixation, to a Government Servant holding a post, other than a tenure post, in a substantive or temporary or officiating capacity, who is promoted or appointed in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity, as the case may be, subject to the fulfilment of the eligibility conditions as prescribed in the relevant Recruitment Rules,to another post carrying duties or responsibilities of greater importance than those attaching to the post held by him/her. Such Government Servant may opt to have his/her pay fixed from the Date of his/her Next Increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) accruing in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, except in cases of appointment on deputation basis to an ex-cadre post or on direct recruitment basis or appointment/promotion on ad-hoc basis.

(ii) In case, consequent upon his/her promotion, the Government Servant opts to his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment (either 1st July or 1st January, as the case may be) in the Level of the post from which Government Servant is promoted, then, from the date of promotion till his/her DNI, the Government Servant shall be placed at the next higher cell in the level of the post to which he/she is promoted.

(iii) Subsequently, on DNI in the level of the post to which Government Servant is promoted, his//her Pay will be re-fixed and two increments (one accrued on accoun tof annual increment and the second accrued on account of promotion) may be granted in the Level from which the Government Servant is promoted and he/she shall be placed, at a Cell equal to the figure so arrived, in the Level of the post to which he/she is promoted; and if no such Cell is available in the Level to which he/she is promoted, he/she shall be placed at the next higher Cell in that Level.promotion-chart

(iv) In such cases where Government Servant opts to have his/her pay fixed from the date of his/her next increment in the Level of the post from which he/she is promoted, the next increment as well as Date of Next Increment (DNI) will be regulated accordingly.

4. It is further reiterated that in order to enable the officials to exercise the option within the time limit prescribed, the option clause for pay fixation on promotion with effect from date of promotion/DNI shall invariably be incorporated in the promotion/appointment order so that there are no cases of delay in exercising the options due to administrative lapse.

5. In so far as their application to the employees belonging to the Indian Audit and Accounts Department is concerned, these orders issue in consultation with the Comptroller &Auditor General of India.

Incorrect fixation of pay for Pharmacist – NFIR

Incorrect fixation of pay for Pharmacist – NFIR

Incorrect fixation of pay in the Non-Functional Grade (GP 4200/-) in the ease of Pharmacist working in the Medical Department on Indian Railways

Incorrect fixation of pay for Pharmacist - NFIR

No.1/2/Part IV

Dated: 05/06/2017

The Secretary (E),
Railway Baoard,
New Delhi

Dear Sir,
Sub:
Incorrect fixation of pay in the Non-Functional Grade (GP 4200/-) in the ease of Pharmacist working in the Medical Department on Indian Railways-reg.

Ref: Railway Board’s clarification vide No. PC-V/2009/ACP/2 dated 20/04/2011.

Representations are being received from the staff that the Zonal Units have been interpreting wrongly the Board’s instructions on the subject of pay fixation when the staff working as Pharmacists are placed in NFG (GP 4200/-) on completion of 2 years service in GP 2800/- i.e. in the entry grade.

In this connection, Federation cite the instructions issued by the CPO/Southern Railway vide  letter dated 15/05/2017 (copy enclosed) wherein the Divisions have been advised to the placement of
Pharmacist in NFG (GP 4200/-) as placement only and to fix their pay in the initial Pay Band plus Grade Pay (PB-2 + GP 4200/-) only. This action on the part of Southenl Railway is unjustified in view of the fact that instructions exist vide Railway Board’s letter No.PC-V/2009/ACP/2 dated 20/04/2011 to treat the placement of Pharmacist on completion of 2 years in the entry grade pay (GP 2800/-) to NFG/GP 4200/- as one financial upgradation, therefore the Pharmacists are entitled for one increment benefit on being placed in GP 4200/-.

While issuing instructions vide letter dated 15/05/2017, the CPO/Southern Railway has wrongly  relied on Board’s instructions contained in RBE 109/2010 dated inspite of Board’s  clarification vide letter dated 20/04/2011. Due to wrong decision of Southern Railway, recoveries have  started on the Divisions of Southern Railway.

NFIR therefore, requests the Railway Board to issue immediate clarification to all Zonal  Railways etc., in general and GM/Southern Railway in particular to allow 3% increase in pay fixation of  Pharmacists when they are placed in GP 4200/-, having completed 2 years service in GP 2800 (PB I).  A copy of the instructions issued may be to the endorsed to the Federation.

Yours faithfully,

sd/-
(Dr. M. Raghavaiah)

General Secretary
