Subject: Applicability of minimum pay/stepping up of pay clarification reg.

A number of references have been received in this office regarding applicability, for departmental promotees, of minimum entry pay prescribed for direct recruits (appointed on or after 1.1.2006), in Section II of Part A of the First Schedule of RS(RP) Rules, 2008. References have also been received regarding stepping up of pay of senior promotees with references to such of their directly recruited juniors who are recruited on or after 1.1.2006 and whose basic pay is more than that of their seniors.

2. The matter has been examined in consultation with Ministry of Finance. In this connection it is clarified that the revised pay structure comprises grade pays and running pay bands and in the case of those Railway servants who were already in service before 1.1.2006. Sixth Pay Commission has not prescribed a minimum pay in the running pay band with reference to the minimum entry level pay prescribed for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006. Further, the Sixth CPC has not prescribed minimum pay in the pay band for the purpose of fixation of pay on promotion in the case of any grade and fixing of minimum pay in the pay band in the case of each grade pay for departmental promotees would defeat the very purpose of introduction of running pay bands.

3. As far as the matter relating to bringing the pay of existing Railway servants as on 1.1.2006 at par with the pay of direct recruits recruited on or after 1.1.2006 is concerned, it is clarified that the pay of those Railway servants who joined the Railway as direct recruits on or after 1.1.2006 is to be fixed as per Section II, Part ‘A’ of the First Schedule to the RS(RP) Rules, 2008 and the procedure of pay fixation is based on a specific recommendation of the Sixth Pay Commission, which has been accepted by the Government. As far as pay fixation in respect to those Railway servants who were already in service on 1.1.2006 is concerned, the same is to be done as per the provisions of Rule 7 of RS(RP) Rules, 2008 and in accordance with the fitment tables annexed with this Ministry’s letter No.PC-VI/2008/I/RSRP/1 dated 11.9.2008.

4. In the light of the foregoing, it is clarified that in terms of RS(RP) Rules,2008:-

(a) no minimum pay in the pay band can be prescribed in the case of promotion of Railway servants from one grade to another (except in the case of change in pay band); and

(b) pay of those Railway servants who were already in service on 1.1.2006 can not be fixed with reference to the minimum entry pay prescribed for those who joined the Railways as direct recruits on or after 1.1.2006 as per Section II, Part ‘A’ of the First Schedule to the RS(RP) Rules, 2008.

5. However, stepping up of pay of seniors can be permitted with reference to such of their directly recruited juniors borne on the same seniority list who are recruited on or after 1.1.2006 and whose basic pay is more than that of the seniors, subject to the following conditions:-

(a) Stepping up of the basic pay of seniors can be claimed only in the case of those cadres which have an element of direct recruitment and in cases where a directly recruited junior is actually drawing more basic pay than the seniors. In such cases, the basic pay of the seniors will be stepped up with reference to the basic pay of the juniors. Stepping up will be applicable from the date junior direct recruit is actually drawing higher basic pay than the senior.

(b) Further, Railway servants cannot claim stepping up of their revised basic pay with reference to entry pay in the revised pay structure for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006 as laid down in Section II of Part A or First Schedule to the RS(RP) Rules, 2008, if their cadre does not have an element of direct recruitment, or in cases where no junior is drawing basic pay higher than them.

(c) Stepping up of pay of the seniors shall not be applicable in cases where pay of direct recruits has been fixed at a higher stage on account of grant of advance increments etc. at the time of recruitment.

6. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.

This is only related to Railways. But I would like to comment two points here:
1. This clarification is applicable only to the extend of promotion cases and stepping up of cases with regard to juniors appointed on direct recruitment.

2. Whereas the minimum pay has been prescribed for normal fixation as per revised pay rules 2008 under the following clause:
Rule 7 A (ii).

Even if it is related with railways or with any other departments, some anomalies will remain as anomalies itself.

mahesh kumar said...

If it is true what about confederation of central govt employees and workers which had discussion with national pay anomoly committee and posted on its website that the department of expenditure agreed to issue enabling orders

Rameshwar Singh said...

As per Rule 7 Note 10(d) it clearly mentioned that one of conditions required for stepping up is that 'the anomaly should should be directly as a result of the application of the provisions of Fundamental Rule 22' Here no anomaly arises due to application of FR 22. How anomaly arises due to application of FR22 is a long history. Even C&AG's ruling dated 11-9-1975 is available for stepped up. Hence, both Petroleum and Railways stepping up is in violation of Rule 7 Note 10(d)and objectionable by audit.

Dear All,

I joined central govt autonomous body after 1.1.2006 with payscale 5500-175-9000. In six pay Gradepay of 4600 is assigned to my designation by my department(As it is merged with 6500 pay scale). Due to this I should be fixed by applying Section-2 for post recruitis who joined after 1.1.2006 and my fixation should be 12540+4600=17140. However I have been fixed as 5500*1.86+4600. Can anyone suggest me where should I register the complain regarding this ?

This will be a great help if anyone can give address or email to register complain.

lakhan said...

The letter/clarification is a clear violation of fundamental rule in a cadre where there is no direct appointment there will be no stepping up and the person appointed directly will enjoy the higher pay.this is a great anamoly which requires to be removed, how can a direct recruit enjoy the higher pay that the promitee no matter wheather it is in the same cadre or outside cadre

manojabcd87 said...

This was already there as per pay commission reports, a junior can never have more salary than seniors. But the point for discussion is that what are the basic pay slabs for various promotional posts in various departments likewise in 5th CPC. if there is a scenario of basic pay+grade pay then why these entry basic pay for new recruits introduced. if grade pay is the difference between two consucutive posts than the basic pay for new recruits should be like 5400 + relevant grade pay and so on for each pay bands. clarify if any one can.......!

Increment in case of stepping up between 1-1-2006 and 1-7-2006

Rule 10 clearly states that if you are completing 6 months in "revised pay structure" ( grade pay + pay band ) then you are eligible for next increment on 1-7-2006 irrespective of change in basic pay.

so if your grade pay and pay band range remain same but your basic pay increase between 1-1-2006 and 1-7-2006 then you are entitled for an increment on 1-7-2006, since stepping up also use same rule.

I am a govt servant and serving in Assam Rifles (Central Paramilitary Force as a Head Constable (havildar).
That sir, my pre-revised basic pay on 01-01-06 was Rs 3455/- pm in the pay scale of Rs 3200-85-4900/-pm. As per recommendation of 6th cpc Scale of Head Constable of CPMF has been upgraded to Rs 4000-100-6000/- pm. I have been stepped up with reference to the junior a direct recruit appointed on 07-01-2006 and my pay fixed to RS 7510+ GP 2400. You are requested to intimate me whether annual increment on Jul 06 will be applicable to me or not?

To all (specially for railway union leaders),i wants to give you an example that a nursing staff who is working in a railway hospital before Jan 2006 and a junior join the same division hospital in 2008 at minimum pay 17140/- the senior must be stepped up but an another nursing staff who join in 2007 in another divisional railway hospital will get more pay than who join before 2006. this is a great anomaly i am referring the case to anomaly commission and my expert union leaders for real solution. thanks for notice.

satya prakash said...

To all, i want to present an example about anomaly. suppose a nursing staff who join the divisional railway hospital in 5000-8000 before 2006 and a junior join the same divisional hospital in 2008 in 17140/- (minimum entry pay) now senior must be stepped up in 17140/- but a junior who join the railway in another division railway hospital in 2007 still getting more pay than the senior who serving before and more than junior. now what mistake done by senior. this is a big anomaly and here i wants to referring this case to my union brothers and pay commission`s anomaly committee for real solution.
