Anomaly in Pay Matrix levels of 7th CPC

No.IV/NAC/7th CPC/2016
Dated:10/08/2017

The Secretary (E), Railway Board, New Delhi

Dear Sir,

Sub: Anomaly in Pay Matrix levels of 7th CPC.

NFIR brings to the kind notice of Railway Board the anomaly arisen due to non-grant of 3% of pay towards annual increment, pursuant to implementation of 7th CPC pay matrix levels as explained below:-

(a) Clause (c) of terms of reference of the National Anomaly Committee says that the Official Side and Staff Side are of the opinion that any recommendation is in contravention of the principle or the policy enunciated by the 7th CPC itself without the commission assigning any reason, constitutes an anomaly.

(b) The recommendations of 7th CPC regarding Annual Increment are as follows:

(i) 7th CPC Report – Highlights of recommendations-

Annual Increment- The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3%.

(ii) 7th CPC Report Forward:-

Para 1.19- The prevailing rate of increment is considered satisfactory and has been retained.

(iii) 7th CPC Report – Chapter 4.1-Principles of pay determination –

Para-4.1.17 -The various stages within a pay level moves upwards at the rate of 3% per annum.

(iv) 7th CPC Report -Chapter -5.1 -Pay structure (Civilian employees)

Para 5.1.38-Annual Increment.

“The rate of annual increment is being retained at 3%” Para 5.1.21-The vertical range of each level denotes pay progress within that level. That indicates steps of annual financial progression of 3% within each level.

However, contrary to the above principle laid down by 7th CPC, the actual increment rate in the following pay level of the pay matrix are less than 3% as illustrated in the following table.

S.No Pay level in The pay
level (Cell)
Basic pay in the revised scale Next above basic pay after adding 3% increment Next above basic pay after fixed as
per pay matrix
Amount of loss to the
employee
Actual increment rate 3%
1 12 24900 25647 25600 (Cell 13) 47 2.81
2 2 20500 21115 21100 (Cell 3) 15 2.92
3 9 27600 28428 28400 (Cell 10) 28 2.89
4 11 34300 35329 35300 (Cell 12) 29 2.91
5 10 38100 39243 39200 (Cell 11) 43 2.88
6 9 44900 46247 46200 (Cell 10) 47 2.89
7 13 64100 66023 66000 (Cell 14) 23 2.96
8 9 60400 62212 62200 (Cell 10) 12 2.98
9 18 87700 90331 90300 31 2.96
7th-cpc-increment-rate-anomaly

(d) From the above table it can be concluded that:

1. The recommendations of 7th CPC regarding increment rate is in contravention of the principle or policy enunciated by 7th CPC, hence it constitutes an anomaly .

2. In many stages even though the increment rate shown is 3%, it is rounded off to next below amount causing financial loss to the employees.

3. In the 6th CPC, while calculating increment, if the last digit as one or above, it used to be rounded off to next 10. So in this pay matrix, if the amount is 10 and above, it should be rounded off to next 100.

NFIR therefore requests the Railway Board to take necessary action for rectification of anomaly so as to ensure that the increment @ 3% of pay is granted to employees in whose cases where the actual amount is less than 3%.

Yours faithfully,
(Dr M. Raghavaiah)
General Secretary
