Rule 13(i) of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008

13. Fixation of pay on promotion on or after 1.1.2006 - In the case of promotion from one grade pay to another in the revised pay structure, the fixation will be done as follows:-

(i) One increment equal to 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the existing grade pay will be computed and rounded off to the next multiple of 10. This will be added to the existing pay in the pay band. The grade pay corresponding to the promotion post will thereafter be granted in addition to this pay in the pay band. In cases where promotion involves change in the pay band also, the same methodology will be followed. However, if the pay in the pay band after adding the increment is less than the minimum of the higher pay band to which promotion is taking place, pay in the pay band will be stepped to such minimum.

  1. Sir, Is this one increment order on Promotion in same Grade pay issued by FinMin applicable to Defence Personnel?

    1. Yes it is the one inrement order on Promotion in the Same Grade Pay issued by Min of Finance to all the CG employees. The bill can be claimed as there is no question of MACP granted/awarded to the employees. This will not affect for drawal of one one increment for carrying higher responsibilities on promotion.

  2. I have been granted Grade Pay of Rs. 4200/- under MACP scheme w.e.f. Sept,2008 and now I am going to be promoted as Assistant in the Grade pay of Rs. 4200/- should I get the benifit of one notional increment.

  3. Sir, I was drawing the Pay Band 9300-36400 with Grade Pay of Rs.5400/- by virtue of MACP wef 1-08-2008.
    I was promoted as Accounts officer wef 1-05-2009 which involved assumption of higher responsibility but because the identical Pay Band and Grade Pay I did not had any financial benifit of the Promotion. Am I also entitled to benifit of 3% in light of this order. Kindly clarify.

    Promoted to : PB4 37400-67000+GP9000
    CASE 2 promotion(1.02.2011),
    Basic pay on the date of promotion (as on 1.02.2011) : 23730 + 8000 = 31730
    Promoted to : PB4 37400-67000+GP9000
    CASE 2 is mine while CASE 1 is that of my friend's. please help.
