  • Does any member know the Pay fixation rules for the new recruit who joined after 1/1/06 (say, 1/9/06) and given N advance increments (say, N=2 and N=5) in the pre-revised Pay Scale?
    I moved from ICAR to State Agriculture University under Govt. of Odisha as a new recruit appointed on 14/8/06 in the pay scale, 16400-450-22400 (Professor, Direct recruited) and the initial pay was fixed at 18200, with 4 increments as per the appointment offer Terms and Condition.
    Directly recruited professors had been fixed at a pay not less than 43000 in pay scale of 37, 400 to 63, 000/- in pay band II with effect of 01.01.2006
    What should be my new Pay on the date of joining? What will be the fate of special advance increments given in earlier pay scale in the terms and condition of appointment? If so, is there any documentary evidence to claim the benefit?

    The Head clerks,HBC,HPC,HTC etc.,who retired pre 1996 could reach only 1400-2300 scale even after more than 30 yrs of service. now they are kept in GP 2800/-when merging scales. they shd be fixed in GP 4200/-and pay band of 5000-8000. These class of employees were the victims of non-consideration of cadre restructuring in that period.LET THE LIVING FEW GET SOME BENEFIT AT THE END OF THEIR LIFE ATLEAST.

    • venkatesan 9 years ago

      please consider the plight of the pre 1996 retirees like ASMs,HTCs,Head clerks,HBCs,HPCs,and other employees who had retired in the scale 1400-2300 itself due to failure of cadre restructuring at that periods, The demand of the various Rlys unions for refixing their scale and grade pay may be putforth. Many such surviving employees will be grateful to the Union. I am enclosing a union's demand below:
      RESTORE REDUCTION OF PENSION OF PRE-1996 PENSIONERS W.E.F. 1.1.2006.
      Railway Pensioners who retired prior to 1.1.1996, from specified category of posts such as
      Head Clerk, JE Gr. II, Chargeman B, PWI, DSK, AYM, PI, ECRC, ASM, HTC, TI, MCM etc. etc.
      from scale Rs. 1400-2300, are badly affected, due to denial of min. pension Rs. 6750 w.e.f.
      1.1.2006. . Their pension is now being fixed retrospectively by placing
      them in scale Rs. 4500-7000 / PB1+2800 GP, instead of Rs. 5000-8000 / PB2+4200G.P, This
      problem exist only in Railways. Other sister departments have correctly fixed the
      corresponding categories in PB II.
      Subject was discussed in 20th SCOVA Meeting held on 21.9.2011 and Railway Board was
      advised to sort out the issue after hearing the representatives of Pensioners Assns.4 | Page
      But so far no action has been taken by Rly. Board . This Convention therefore, urges
      Honorable Minister of Railways to intervene to resolve the issue very early.

    Dear sir,
    My pay as per 6th CPC has been fixed from 26/5/2006 ie, date of promotion in the grade pay of Rs. 8700/-. I was not granted increment as on 1/7/2006 as I did not complete 6 months in the revised pay structure as per CCS(RP) Rules, 2008. Kindly clarify whether am I entitled for increment as on 1/7/2006 as per Finance Minisrty's the O.M. No. 10/02/2011-E.III/A dated 19th March, 2012.

    Dear Sir,
    ONE TIME INCREMENT MEASURE IN PRE-REVISED SCALE AS ON 1.1.2006 – NEEDS CLARIFICATION ( MIN.OF FIN. ORDER DT. 19/03/2012 )
    I was promoted to the post of Sr.TA w.e.f. 15/12/2005 i.e. from pay scale of 4000-100-6000 to pay scale of 5000-150-8000. As my old date of increment was 01st April, I had filed an option for fixtion of my pay. As on 14/12/2005, I was drawing Rs.4800/-. My pay was fixed at Rs.5000/- w.e.f. 01/01/2006 and Rs.5150/- w.e.f. 01/04/2006. Will I get benefit of the above mentioned order?

    • I think 01-04-2006 is not your DNI, it is the date of fixation of pay on promotion from DNI. Therefore, you are not eligible for this relaxation.

    Dear Sir,
    ONE TIME INCREMENT MEASURE IN PRE-REVISED SCALE AS ON 1.1.2006 – NEEDS CLARIFICATION ( MIN.OF FIN. ORDER DT. 19/03/2012 )
    My normal date of increment was 1.5.2006 (Last increment drawn in the month of May, 2005), but retired on superannuation on 31-01-2006 ( A/N ). My request for the grant of one time measure increment in pre-revised scale on 1.1.2006 has been rejected by my Office / PAO on the ground that increment in the month of May, 2006 was not due since I was already retired on 31/01/2006 (AN).
    The ministry’s order is not clear whether Govt. employees retired between February and June, 2006 and whose normal date of increment was between the said period (Feb.2006 to June,2006) but retired before their normal date of increment (month) also get one time increment as on 01-01-2006 as they were on duty /service on that date i.e. 01-01-2006. If not, such employees will be in a great loss compared to other employees whose increment is in the month of Feb-June 2006 and retired in the month of July, 2006 & afterwards as they will entitled for grant of two increments (i.e. on 01-01-2006 as well as 01-07-2006 ) and also other consequent retirement benefit.
    As per the confederation of Central Government Employee’s Secretary General clarification “ IT IS APPLICABLE TO ALL GOVT. EMPLOYEES AS ON DUTY ON 1.1.2006 AND WHOSE DATE OF INCREMENT WAS BETWEEN FEBRUARY AND JUNE, 2006 WOULD BE NOW GIVEN AN INCREMENT IN THE PRE-REVISED SCALE OF PAY AS ‘ONE TIME MEASURE’ AND THEN AGAIN REFIXED WITH ANOTHER INCREMENT IN THE NEW PAY ON 1.7.2006. ALL SUCH OFFICIALS WHO’S PAY WILL BE REFIXED W.E.F. 1.1.2006 SHOULD GET ARREARS AND OFFICIALS WHO RETIRED AFTER 1.1.2006 WILL GET THEIR PENSION UPWARDLY REVISED WITH ALL CONSEQUENTIAL RETIREMENT BENEFITS”.
    As per my opinion also it should be applicable to all government employees as on duty on 1.1.2006 and whose date of increment was between February and June, 2006 may be granted additional increment as one time measure in pre-revised scale on 1.1.2006 and also for re-fixation of pension as well as get other retirement benefit.

      the above benefit will be applicable only to those whose date of increment fell between 1st Feb to 1st Jun and who were on duty during the increment date i.e. who has really drawn the increment and not for whose who were not in duty. Your PAO is correct
