Note 3 – Persons who were on earned leave or any other leave on 1.1.2006 which entitled them to leave salary will be allowed the benefits of this rule.

7. Fixation of initial pay in the revised pay structure:

(1) The initial pay of a Government servant who elects, or is deemed to have elected under sub-rule (3) of rule 6 to be governed by the revised pay structure on and from the 1st day of January, 2006, shall, unless in any case the President by special order otherwise directs, be fixed separately in respect of his substantive pay in the permanent post on which he holds a lien or would have held a lien if it had not been suspended, and in respect of his pay in the officiating post held by him, in the following manner, namely :-

(A) in the case of all employees:-

(i) the pay in the pay band/pay scale will be determined by multiplying the existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 by a factor of 1.86 and rounding off the resultant figure to the next multiple of 10.

(ii) if the minimum of the revised pay band/ pay scale is more than the amount arrived at as per (i) above, the pay shall be fixed at the minimum of the revised pay band/pay scale;

Provided further that:-

Where, in the fixation of pay, the pay of Government servants drawing pay at two or more consecutive stages in an existing scale gets bunched, that is to say, gets fixed in the revised pay structure at the same stage in the pay band, then, for every two stages so bunched, benefit of one increment shall be given so as to avoid bunching of more than two stages in the revised running pay bands. For this purpose, the increment will be calculated on the pay in the pay band. Grade pay would not be taken into account for the purpose of granting increments to alleviate bunching.

In the case of pay scales in higher administrative grade (HAG) in the pay band PB-4, benefit of increments due to bunching shall be given taking into account all the stages in different pay scales in this grade. In the case of HAG+ scale, benefit of one increment for every two stages in the pre-revised scale will be granted in the revised pay scale.

If by stepping up of the pay as above, the pay of a Government servant gets fixed at a stage in the revised pay band/ pay scale (where applicable) which is higher than the stage in the revised pay band at which the pay of a Government servant who was drawing pay at the next higher stage or stages in the same existing scale is fixed, the pay of the latter shall also be stepped up only to the extent by which it falls short of that of the former.

(iii) The pay in the pay band will be determined in the above manner. In addition to the pay in the pay band, grade pay corresponding to the existing scale will be payable.

Note – Illustration 1 on the above is provided in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

(B) In the case of employees who are in receipt of special pay/allowance in addition to pay in the existing scale which has been recommended for replacement by a pay band and grade pay without any special pay/allowance, pay shall be fixed in the revised pay structure in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above.

(C) In the case of employees who are in receipt of special pay component with any other nomenclature in addition to pay in the existing scales, such as personal pay for promoting small family norms, special pay to Parliament Assistants, Central (Deputation on Tenure) Allowance, etc., and in whose case the same has been replaced in the revised pay structure with corresponding allowance/pay at the same rate or at a different rate, the pay in the revised pay structure shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above. In such cases, the allowance at the new rate as recommended shall be drawn in addition to pay in the revised pay structure from the date specified in the individual notifications related to these allowances.

(D) In the case of medical officers who are in receipt of non-practising allowance, the pay in the revised pay structure shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above except that, in such cases, the pre-revised dearness allowance appropriate to the non-practising allowance admissible at index average 536 (1982 = 100) shall be added while fixing the pay in the revised pay band, and in such cases, non-practising allowance at the new rates shall be drawn with effect from 1.1.2006 or the date of option for revised pay structure, in addition to the pay so fixed in the revised pay structure. Illustration 2 in this regard is at in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

Note 1 – (a) In the case of Group D employees, the pay in the revised pay structure will be fixed initially in the -1S pay band as per Clause (A) above with the appropriate grade pay and arrears paid accordingly. Thereafter, pay of such of those Group D employees who already possess the revised minimum qualifications recommended by the Commission prescribed for entry into PB-1 would be fixed with effect from 1.1.2006 in PB-1 with grade pay of Rs.1800.

(b) Such of those existing Group D employees who do not possess the revised minimum qualifications for entry into PB-1 would be retrained by the concerned Department preferably within a period of six months so that payment of arrears on account of upgradation are not delayed. After re-training, these Group D staff will also be placed in the Pay Band PB-1 with the grade pay of Rs.1800 with effect from 1.1.2006 and arrears drawn accordingly. Once placed in the PB-1 Pay Band, this category of Group D staff will regain their seniority vis-à-vis the other category of Group D staff that already possessed the minimum qualifications and were, therefore, placed in the PB-1 Pay Band as on 1.1.2006. Inter-se seniority of all the employees in erstwhile Group D will be fully maintained with Group D employee in a higher pre-revised pay scale being placed higher vis-à-vis an employee in a lower pay scale. Within the same pre-revised pay scale, seniority which existed prior to revision would continue.

(c) Arrears shall be payable with effect from 1.1.2006 in both the cases i.e. to those Group D employees who possess the qualifications and are placed in PB-1 straight away and those Group D employees who do not possess the qualifications and are placed after re-training. Illustration 3 in regard to fixation of pay for Group D staff is in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

Note 2 – Where a post has been upgraded as a result of the recommendations of the Sixth CPC as indicated in Part B or Part C of the First Schedule to these Rules, the fixation of pay in the applicable pay band will be done in the manner prescribed in accordance with Clause (A) (i) and (ii) of Rule 7 by multiplying the existing basic pay as on 1.1.2006 by a factor of 1.86 and rounding the resultant figure to the next multiple of ten. The grade pay corresponding to the upgraded scale as indicated in Column 6 of Part B or C will be payable in addition. Illustration 4 in this regard is in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules.

Note 3 – A Government servant who is on leave on the 1st day of January, 2006 and is entitled to leave salary shall become entitled to pay in the revised pay structure from 1.1.2006 or the date of option for the revised pay structure. Similarly, where a government servant is on study leave on the first day of January, 2006 he will be entitled to the benefits under these Rules from 1.1.2006 or the date of option.

Note 4 – A Government servant under suspension, shall continue to draw subsistence allowance based on existing scale of pay and his pay in the revised pay structure will be subject to the final order on the pending disciplinary proceedings.

Note 5 – Where a Government servant is holding a permanent post and is officiating in a higher post on a regular basis and the scales applicable to these two posts are merged into one scale, the pay shall be fixed under this sub-rule with reference to the officiating post only, and the pay so fixed shall be treated as substantive pay.

The provisions of this Note shall apply mutatis mutandis, to Government servants holding in an officiating capacity, posts on different existing scales which have been replaced by the revised pay structure.

Note 6 – Where the `existing emoluments’ exceed the revised emoluments in the case of any Government servant, the difference shall be allowed as personal pay to be absorbed in future increases in pay.

Note 7 – Where in the fixation of pay under sub-rule (1), the pay of a Government servant, who, in the existing scale was drawing immediately before the 1st day of January, 2006 more pay than another Government servant junior to him in the same cadre, gets fixed in the revised pay band at a stage lower than that of such junior, his pay shall be stepped upto the same stage in the revised pay band as that of the junior.

Note 8 – Where a Government servant is in receipt of personal pay on the 1st day of January, 2006, which together with his existing emoluments exceeds the revised emoluments, then, the difference representing such excess shall be allowed to such Government servant as personal pay to be absorbed in future increases in pay.

Note 9 – In the case of employees who are in receipt of personal pay for passing Hindi Pragya, Hindi Typewriting, Hindi Shorthand and such other examinations under the “Hindi Teaching Scheme”, or on successfully undergoing training in cash and accounts matters prior to the 1st day of January, 2006, while the personal pay shall not be taken into account for purposes of fixation of initial pay in the revised pay structure, they would continue to draw personal pay after fixation of their pay in the revised pay structure on and from the 1st day of January, 2006 or subsequently for the period for which they would have drawn it but for the fixation of their pay in the revised pay structure. The quantum of such personal pay would be paid at the appropriate rate of increment in the revised pay structure from the date of fixation of pay for the period for which the employee would have continued to draw it.

Explanation – For the purpose of this Note, “appropriate rate of increment in the revised pay structure” means 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the grade pay at the stage at which the pay of the employee is fixed in the revised pay structure.

Note 10 – In cases where a senior Government servant promoted to a higher post before the 1st day of January, 2006 draws less pay in the revised pay structure than his junior who is promoted to the higher post on or after the 1st day of January, 2006, the pay in the pay band of the senior Government servant should be stepped up to an amount equal to the pay in the pay band as fixed for his junior in that higher post. The stepping up should be done with effect from the date of promotion of the junior Government servant subject to the fulfillment of the following conditions, namely: –

(a) both the junior and the senior Government servants should belong to the same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted should be identical in the same cadre.

(b) the pre-revised scale of pay and the revised grade pay of the lower and higher posts in which they are entitled to draw pay should be identical.

(c) the senior Government servants at the time of promotion should have been drawing equal or more pay than the junior.

(d) the anomaly should be directly as a result of the application of the provisions of Fundamental Rule 22 or any other rule or order regulating pay fixation on such promotion in the revised pay structure. If even in the lower post, the junior officer was drawing more pay in the pre-revised scale than the senior by virtue of any advance increments granted to him, provision of this Note need not be invoked to step up the pay of the senior officer.

(2) Subject to the provisions of rule 5, if the pay as fixed in the officiating post under sub-rule (1) is lower than the pay fixed in the substantive post, the former shall be fixed at the stage next above the substantive pay.

8. Fixation of pay in the revised pay structure of employees appointed as fresh recruits on or after 1.1.2006 – Section II of Part A of the First Schedule of these Rules indicates the entry level pay in the pay band at which the pay of direct recruits to a particular post carrying a specific grade pay will be fixed on or after 1.1.2006.

This will also be applied in the case of those recruited between 1.1.2006 and the date of issue of this Notification. In such cases, where the emoluments in the pre-revised pay scale(s) [i.e., basic pay in the pre-revised pay scale(s) plus Dearness Pay plus Dearness Allowance applicable on the date of joining] exceeds the sum of the pay fixed in the revised pay structure and the applicable dearness allowance thereon, the difference shall be allowed as personal pay to be absorbed in future increments in pay.

9. Rate of increment in the revised pay structure –The rate of increment in the revised pay structure will be 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and grade pay applicable, which will be rounded off to the next multiple of 10. The amount of increment will be added to the existing pay in the pay band. Illustration 5 in this regard is in the Explanatory Memorandum to these Rules. In the case of PB-3, variable rates of increment at 3% and 4% have been provided. The higher rate of increment will be granted to not more than 20% of the strength of officers in PB-3.

10. Date of next increment in the revised pay structure – There will be a uniform date of annual increment, viz. 1st July of every year. Employees completing 6 months and above in the revised pay structure as on 1st of July will be eligible to be granted the increment. The first increment after fixation of pay on 1.1.2006 in the revised pay structure will be granted on 1.7.2006 for those employees for whom the date of next increment was between 1st July, 2006 to 1stst January, 2007.

Provided that in the case of persons who had been drawing maximum of the existing scale for more than a year as on the 1st day of January, 2006, the next increment in the revised pay structure shall be allowed on the 1st day of January, 2006. Thereafter, the provision of Rule 10 would apply.

Provided that in cases where an employee reaches the maximum of his pay band, shall be placed in the next higher pay band after one year of reaching such a maximum. At the time of placement in the higher pay band, benefit of one increment will be provided. Thereafter, he will continue to move in the higher pay band till his pay in the pay band reaches the maximum of PB-4, after which no further increments will be granted.

Note 1 – In cases where two existing scales, one being a promotional scale for the other, are merged, and the junior Government servant, now drawing his pay at equal or lower stage in the lower scale of pay, happens to draw more pay in the pay band in the revised pay structure than the pay of the senior Government servant in the existing higher scale, the pay in the pay band of the senior government servant shall be stepped up to that of his junior from the same date and he shall draw next increment in accordance with Rule 10.

11. Fixation of pay in the revised pay structure subsequent to the 1st day of January, 2006. – Where a Government servant continues to draw his pay in the existing scale and is brought over to the revised pay structure from a date later than the 1st day of January, 2006, his pay from the later date in the revised pay structure shall be fixed in the following manner:-

(i) Pay in the pay band will be fixed by adding the basic pay applicable on the later date, the dearness pay applicable on that date and the pre-revised dearness allowance based on rates applicable as on 1.1.2006. This figure will be rounded off to the next multiple of 10 and will then become the pay in the applicable pay band. In addition to this, the grade pay corresponding to the pre-revised pay scale will be payable. Where the Government servant is in receipt of special pay or non-practising allowance, the methodology followed will be as prescribed in Rule 7 (i), (B),
(C) or (D) as applicable, except that the basic pay and dearness pay to be taken into account will be the basic pay and dearness pay applicable as on that date but dearness allowance will be calculated as per rates applicable on 1.1.2006.

12. Fixation of pay on reappointment after the 1st day of January, 2006 to a post held prior to that date – A Government servant who had officiated in a post prior to the 1st day of January, 2006 but was not holding that post on that date and who on subsequent appointment to that post draws pay in the revised pay structure shall be allowed the benefit of the proviso to Fundamental Rule 22, to the extent it would have been admissible had he been holding that post on the 1st day of January, 2006, and had elected the revised pay structure on and from that date.

13. Fixation of pay on promotion on or after 1.1.2006 – In the case of promotion from one grade pay to another in the revised pay structure, the fixation will be done as follows:-

(i) One increment equal to 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the existing grade pay will be computed and rounded off to the next multiple of 10. This will be added to the existing pay in the pay band. The grade pay corresponding to the promotion post will thereafter be granted in addition to this pay in the pay band. In cases where promotion involves change in the pay band also, the same methodology will be followed. However, if the pay in the pay band after adding the increment is less than the minimum of the higher pay band to which promotion is taking place, pay in the pay band will be stepped to such minimum.

(ii) In the case of promotion from PB-4 to HAG+, after adding one increment in the manner prescribed in Rule 9, the pay in the pay band and existing grade pay will be added and the resultant figure will become the basic pay in HAG+. This shall not exceed Rs. 80,000, the maximum of the scale. For Government servants in receipt of NPA, pay plus NPA will not exceed Rs. 85,000.

14. Mode of payment of arrears of pay – The arrears shall be paid in cash in two instalments. The first instalment should be restricted to 40% of the total arrears. The remaining 60% of arrears should be paid during the next financial year.

Explanation – For the purposes of this rule:

(a) “arrears of pay” in relation to a Government servant, means the difference between:

(i) the aggregate of the pay and allowances to which he is entitled on account of the revision of his pay and allowances under these rules, for the relevant period. Revised allowances (except for dearness allowance and non-practising allowance) will be payable only with effect from 1.9.2008; and

(ii) the aggregate of the pay and allowances to which he would have been entitled (whether such pay and allowances had been received or not) for that period had his pay and allowances not been so revised.

(b) “relevant period” means the period commencing on the 1st day of January, 2006 and ending with the 31st August, 2008.

15. Overriding effect of Rules – The provisions of the Fundamental rules, the Central Civil Services (Revision of Pay) Rules, 1947, the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 1960, the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 1973, Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 1986 and CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 1997 shall not, save as otherwise provided in these rules, apply to cases where pay is regulated under these rules, to the extent they are inconsistent with these rules.

16. Power to relax – Where the President is satisfied that the operation of all or any of the provisions of these rules causes undue hardship in any particular case, he may, by order, dispense with or relax the requirements of that rule to such extent and subject to such conditions as he may consider necessary for dealing with the case in a just and equitable manner.

17. Interpretation – If any question arises relating to the interpretation of any of the provisions of these rules, it shall be referred to the Central Government for decision.

MEMORANDUM EXPLANATORY TO THE CENTRAL CIVIL SERVICES
(REVISED PAY ) RULES , 2008

Rule 1 – This rule is self-explanatory.

Rule 2 – This rule lays down the categories of employees to whom the rules apply. Except for the categories excluded under clause (2), the rules are applicable to all persons under the rule making control of the President serving in Departments paid from Civil Estimates. They do not apply to the employees under the Ministry of Railways and civilian personnel paid from Defence Services Estimates, for whom separate rules will be issued by the Ministries concerned. The rules do not also apply to Gramin Dak Sevaks in the Department of Posts. The rules, however, apply to work charged establishments.

Rule 3 & 4 – These rules are self-explanatory.

Rule 5 – The intention is that all Government servants should be brought over to the revised pay structure except those who elect to draw pay in the existing scales. Those who exercise the option to continue on the existing scales of pay will continue to draw the dearness allowance at the rates in force on the 1st January, 2006 and the dearness allowance will count towards the emoluments for pension, etc. to the extent it so counted on the said date. If a Government servant is holding a permanent post in a substantive capacity and officiating in a higher post, or would have officiated in one or more posts but for his being on deputation etc., he has the option to retain the existing scale only in respect of one scale. Such a Government servant may retain the existing scale applicable to a permanent post or any one of the officiating posts. In respect of the remaining posts he will necessarily have to be brought over to the revised pay structure.

Rule 6 – This rule prescribes the manner in which option has to be exercised and also the authority who should be apprised of such option. The option has to be exercised in the appropriate form appended to the rules. It should be noted that it is not sufficient for a Government servant to exercise the option within the specified time limit but also to ensure that it reaches the prescribed authority within the time limit. In the case of persons who are outside India at the time these rules are promulgated, the period within which the option has to be exercised is three months from the date they take over charge of the post in India. In the case of Government servants the revised pay structure of whose posts are announced subsequent to the date of issue of these rules, the period of three months will run from the date of such announcement.

Persons who have retired between 1st January 2006 and the date of issue of these rules are also eligible to exercise option.

Rule 7(1) – This rule deals with the actual fixation of pay in the existing scales on 1st January, 2006. A few illustrations indicating the manner in which pay of Government servants should be fixed under this sub-rule subject to stepping up of pay under Notes below rule 7(1) are given in the attached Annexure.

Rule 7(2) – The benefit of this rule is not admissible in cases where a Government servant has elected the revised pay structure in respect of his substantive post, but has retained the existing scale in respect of an officiating post.

Rule 8 – This Rule prescribes the method of fixation of pay of employees appointed as fresh recruits on or after 1.1.2006.

Rule 9 & 10 – These rules prescribe the manner in which the next increment in the new scale should be regulated. The provisos to this rule are intended to eliminate the anomalies of junior Government servants drawing more pay than their senior by the operation of substantive part of this rule and also taking care of the Government servants who have been drawing pay at the maximum of the existing scale for more than one year as on 1.1.2006 and also those Government servants who have been stagnating at the maximum of the existing scale and are actually in receipt of stagnation increment on ad hoc basis.

Rule 11 to 17 – These rules are self-explanatory.

(i) The pay of employees may be fixed in the proposed scales of pay in the manner laid down in Para 2.2.21(i) to (v) of the Report. Accepted with the following modifications:
(a) Fixation of pay in the revised Pay Bands will be done by multiplying the basic pay drawn as on 1/1/2006 on the existing Fifth CPC pay scales by a factor of 1.86 and then rounded off to next multiple of 10 and not by a factor of 1.74 as recommended by the Commission.
(b) In the case of Medical Doctors, Dearness Allowance on the Non Practising Allowance will be taken into account while fixing their pay in the revised Pay Bands.
(ii)
a) Though –1S pay scale is not a regular pay scale, initially all Group D employees shall be placed in the -1S pay scale with appropriate grade pay. This pay scale has been devised mainly for the purpose of initial fixation of pay of the Group D employees who had already been recruited on a regular basis as on the date of implementation of this recommendation by the Government.
b) Thereafter, such of those Group D employees as already possess the revised minimum qualifications prescribed for entry into the Group C pay band along with a grade pay of Rs.1800 would be placed in that grade (i.e. pay band of Rs.4860-20200 along with a grade pay of Rs.1800) with effect from 1.1.2006. No fitment benefit would be given again for this fixation.
c) Such of those existing Group D employees who do not possess the minimum qualifications prescribed would need to be retrained and a training package would need to be evolved separately for each of the individual Ministry/Department/Organisation keeping in view their specific needs. After re-training with emphasis on multi-skilling, the Group D staff will be placed in the Pay Band PB-1 of Rs.4860-20200 with the grade pay of Rs.1800. Once placed in the PB-1 Pay Band, this category of Group D staff will regain their seniority vis-à-vis the other category of Group D staff that already possessed the minimum prescribed qualifications and were, therefore, placed in the PB-1 Pay Band immediately.
e) Inter-se seniority of all the employees in erstwhile Group D will be fully maintained with Group D employee in a higher Fifth CPC pay scale being placed higher vis-à-vis an employee in a lower pay scale. Within the same pre-revised pay scale, the seniority will be fixed on the basis of date on which the person came to be placed in that pay scale.
f) Arrears shall be payable with effect from 1.1.2006 in both the cases: to those Group D employees who possess the prescribed qualifications and those Group D employees who do not possess the prescribed qualifications.

Source : The Tribune

The central government has upwardly revised the grade pay for armed forces officers, but the key question remains whether the enhancement would do away anomalies created by the Sixth Pay Commission (SPC) in the status of military officers vis-à-vis civilian officers.

According to information available with The Tribune, the increase in grade pay for armed forces ranges from Rs 400 per month to Rs 2,000 per month at different levels (see chart).

Sources reveal that though the grade pay for the armed forces has been raised, similar enhancement has also been done for civilian officers, which may not give the former any benefit as far as status is concerned. After the SPC recommendations, grade pay remains the sole determinant of status.

The basic pay scales of the armed forces as well as civilian officers as recommended by the SPC were increased after a review committee put in fresh suggestion. This, however, did not give any edge to armed forces personnel vis-à-vis their status.

To cite an example where the revision has further eroded the status of armed forces officers, lieutenant colonels and equivalents in other services have now been granted a grade pay of Rs 7,600.

The SPC had recommended a grade pay of Rs 6,600 for officers at this rank, while recommending Rs 7,600 for the equivalent non-IAS directors of central government and Rs 8,300 for ones from the IAS cadre.

The Army had accordingly sought a raise of grade pay for lieutenant colonels to at least Rs 7,600 since traditionally Lieutenant-Colonels(Lt- Col) had been enjoying a pay more than even directors from the IAS cadre.

Moreover, the time frame for promotion to Lt-Col and director was the same, thatis, 13 years. However, while acceding to the demand of raising the grade pay of Lieutenant Colonels to Rs 7,600, the government has, on the other hand raised the grade pay of directors to Rs 8,700 resulting in the same anomalous situation prevailing prior to the revision.

Though complete details are yet to filter down, officers fear that the same situation may crop up at other ranks. The services are expected to take up the issue with the central government.

While the arrears for the salary will be paid with effect from January 1, 2006, revised applicable allowances will be admissible from September 1, 2008.

Fixation of Pay as on 01.01.2006:

Old basic = 7500 ( in pre revised scale S-14 = 7500 – 250 – 12000)

Revised Pay Band = PB-2 = 9300-34800

Grade Pay = 4800

New Basic pay as on :

01.01.2006 = Old basic pay X 1.86 + Grade Pay = 7500 X 1.86 + 4800 = 18750

01.07.2006 = 18750 X 1.03 = 19313

01.07.2007= 19313 X 1.03 = 19892

01.07.2008 = 19892 X 1.03 = 20489

Transport allowance for A1 city from 01.09.2008= 1600

HRA for A1 city = 30 % of new basic from 01.09.2008 = 0.3 x 20489 = 6147

DA on new basic and transport allowance( but TA will be given from 1.09.200 8) = revised DA is 16 % effective from 01.07.2008 = 0.16 X ( 20489 + 1600) = 3524

Total Emoluments from 01.09.2008 = New basic pay + TA + HRA + DA ( on new basic pay + TA) = 20489+1600+6147+3524
= Rs 31760

Total Revised Gross Pay from 01.09.2008 = Rs 31760.

Total Pre revised gross pay as on 01.08.2008

= old basic X 1.5 X 1.54( 7% additional DA will be effective from 01.07.08 in pre revised scale 47+ 7 = 54%) + TA + HRA + CCA = (7500X1.5 X 1.54)+ 400 + (0.3 X 7500 X1.5) + 300
= 17325 + 400 + 3375 + 300 = 21400

Gross pre revised Pay as on 01. 08. 2008 = 21400

Absolute hike in gross salary = Gross revised salary – gross pre revised salary = 31760 – 21400 = 10360

Percentage (%) hike in Gross salary = (10360/21400 ) X 100 = 42 %

Notes:

1. It is assumed that he has not got any promotion between 01.01.2006 to 01.09.2008. If one got promotion between 01.01.2006 and 01.09.2008, one additional increment of 3% of new basic pay will be given plus his revised grade pay after promotion will be added for calculating new basic pay. In above sample calculation, if someone got promotion in 01.08.2007 from pre revised scale S-14 (= 7500 – 250 – 12000) to S-15 scale (8000 – 275 – 13500), this scale is now upgraded in PB-3 ( 15600 – 39100) with grade pay 5400.

Therefore he will get one additional ancrement on 01.08.2007
New Basic pay as on
01.08.2007 = 19892 X 1.03 + 5400 ( new grade pay) – 4800 (old grade pay) = 21089
01.07.2008 = 21089 x 1.03 = 21721
Remaining calculation for TA, HRA and Da will remain as it is.

2. He is staying in Class A-1 city.

3. He is not using official transport, therefore eligible for transport allowance.

4. Revised Da will be effective 2% from 01.07.2006, 6% from 01.01.2007, 9% from 01.07.2007, 12 % from 01.01.2008 and 16 % from 01.07.2008.
