  • The entry pay for each level is as follows:
Level Academic Grade Pay(Rs.) Entry Pay(Rs.)

The figure so arrived at is to be located in the Academic Level corresponding to employee’s Pay Band and Academic Grade Pay in the new Pay Matrix.

If the figure arrived at in this manner is less than the first cell in that Academic Level, then the pay shall be fixed at the first cell of that Academic Level.

  In cases where in revision of pay, the pay of Government Servants drawing pay at two or more stages in pre-revised Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale, as the case may be, gets fixed at same Cell in the applicable Level in the new Pay Matrix, one additional increment shall be given for every two stages bunched and the pay of Government Servant drawing higher pay in the pre-revised structure shall be fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level as per Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure OM No. 1-6/2016-IC dated 07.09.2016 and subsequent clarification issued vide DoE’s OM No. 1-6/2016-IC/E-lllA dated 07.02.2019.
