  • PARMESH BIST 2 months ago

    I was classified as Division one in 4200 Grade Pay on 1st January 2008 in Pay Level 6 of 7th CPC.
    I got MACP in Pay level 7 on 1st January 2018.
    At present My Basic Pay is Rs 62,200/- in Pay Level 7.
    On 23rd August 2021, I got Promotion in Pay Level 8.
    I wanted to know whether my pay will be Re-fixed in Pay Level 8 or my pay will be placed in the Pay Level 8.
    As per my office my Pay will be placed in the Pay Level 8. That means My basic Pay will still remain at
    Rs 62,200/- in Pay Level 8.
    Please clarify.
