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.

    Whether it is applicable for state govt employees

  • R S PILLAI 5 years ago

    I have been granted Grade Pay of Rs. 4600/- under 3rd MACP scheme w.e.f. Aug,2009 and I am promoted as EME officer (Civ) wef june 2013 in the Grade pay of Rs. 4600/- with higher responsibilities. Should I get the benefit of one increment with payfixation.

  • Anonymous 5 years ago

    Sir I joined the govt office february 1999 in scclae 4500 and promoted in july 2004 in 5500 scale. What option is beneficiary to me as option is from back date. And how stepping up is done as in the same promotion list one junior promoted in march 2006.

  • Anonymous 6 years ago

    I was promoted to a higher grade pay with one additional increment because of better performance. My pay was fixed considering both promotional and additional increment in one step i.e. 3+3=6% of previous pay. Is this the correct way? Shouldn't the pay be calculated in two steps i.e. 3% for promotional pay first and then 3% for additional increment??

  • I was promoted from one cadre (5000-150-8000) to another cadre (5500-175-9000) on 22.03.2006 by departmental examination (held on 14.02.2005) and joined on 29.03.2006. My pay was fixed from date of promotion i.e. 29.03.2006. But, in the recommendations of VI CPC both the post were in G.P. 4200/- so both were merged from 01.01.2006 and my pay fixation was taken back. Is there any order by which I can claim my pay fixation from 29.03.2006? If so please refer the same.
    Thanks in advance

    I got MACP in the year 2013. Now I have got my regular promotion in February 2016 in the grade pay 4600/-. As per MACP rules there would be no fixation of pay at the time of regular promotion, only grade pay difference is given. My department is giving me the same difference in grade pay of Rs.400/- (4600-4200), however,I am being denied of my annual increment due on 01.07.2016 on earlier grade pay of Rs. 4200/-. A promotion always results in financial upgradation but my department is giving my financial loss. Kindly help

  • Sir,
    My point is how will the pay be fixed in these two illustrations if promotion involves pay band change rather than merely grade pay change?
    For example:
    CASE 1 promotion(1.12.2010),
    Basic pay on the date of promotion (as on 1.12.2010) : 23730 + 8000 = 31730
    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.

Whether i am eligible for benefite of one increament vide finance ministry orders 2013:Jan 7 2013 om no.10/02/2011.E.III/A

  • Sir, While working as Postal Assistant in Department of Posts in GP 2400, I have been granted 1st MACP in 2008 to GP of Rs.2800. I got promotion to the cadre of Inspector, Posts in 2010 January after passing LDCE examination in the Grade pay of Rs.4200/-. The Inspector is a separate cadre in the Department and not in the same hierarchy grade of Postal Assistant. On promotion to Inspector post in PB-2 I have been deprived of the fixation benefit of increment in January 2010 and granted the difference of GP only on the plea that it is a regular promotion after MACPS. Kindly clarify whether I am eligible for benefit of one increment on promotion in January 2010.

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

    • Anonymous 10 years ago

      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.
