Sub:- Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised Pay structure — clarifications – regarding.

Following the notification of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, Railway Board has received references seeking clarifications regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. These matters have been considered by Ministry of Finance and the points of doubts are clarified as under:-
Sl.No. Point of doubt Clarification
1. As per the provisions of FR 22 (l)(a)(1),
the Government Servants (other than those appointed on deputation to ex-
cadre post or ad-hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the
option, to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to
have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such
promotion/appointment or from the date of next increment.

Some of the employees, promoted between 01.01.2016 and the date of
notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation on
promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next
increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of RS(RP)
Rules, 2016 i.e. 28th July, 2016, the option submitted by such employees
has now turned out to be disadvantageous.

Whether such employee may be allowed to revise their option under FR
22(I)(a)(1) at this stage.

 

Under the changed circumstances after
notification of RS(RP) Rules, 2016, the employee may be allowed to
exercise revised option for fixation of pay under FR 22(I)(a)(1). Such
revised option shall be exercised’ within one month of issue of this
letter. Option so revised shall be final.

 

  Whether employees
appointed/promoted/granted financial upgradation during 02.01.2015 and
01.07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment on 01.01.2016
Since, the provisions of RS(RP) Rules,
2016 are effective from 01.01.2016, no increment shall be allowed on
01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.
