Sub: Comparison of grades of running staff with those of stationary staff for the purpose of promotion/selection to Group ‘B’ posts.
Consequent upon implementation of scales of pay recommended by the Sixth Central Pay Commission, equivalence of grades of running staff with that of stationary staff for the purpose of promotion to the posts in stationary categories where both running and stationary staff are eligible and are considered together was advised in terms of Board’s letter number E (GP) 2005/2/87 dated 25.04.2011 (RBE No. 53/2011 ). However, taking cognizance of requests from various quarters including the Federations, a Committee was constituted to examine the issues arisen on account of implementation of these instructions. Now, taking note of the recommendations of the Committee, it has been decided that for the purpose of determining the eligibility of the candidates for promotion/Selection to Group ‘B’ posts, the grades of running staff may be equated with those of the stationary staff as indicated below:
herein. The LDCE, wherever the same is in force, is a part of the process of filling vacancies in Group ‘B’ and therefore, whatever is followed in the case of 70% Selection, may also be followed in the case of corresponding LDCE.
