2. The proposal for extension of the revised pay scale in terms of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 to the employees in the pre-revised -1S scale has been considered by the Government and it has been decided that Level-1 of the Pay Matrix introduced on implementation of the 7th CPC Report be the replacement for the pre-revised -1S scale. The pay of those governed by the -1S scale may be revised by using the Fitment Factor of 2.57 for placement in Level-1 in conformity with the Rule 7 of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2016. All pre-revised pay stages lower than pre-revised pay of Rs. 7,000 in the pre-revised -1S scale shall not be considered for determining the benefit of bunching, on the same lines as has been clarified by this Department’s OM. dated 03.08.2017 on application of the benefit on account of bunching. The above noted files of the Ministry of Defence are returned herewith.
