Subject: Grant of Pay Structure of Grade Pay of Rs.4600 in PB-2 to the post that exists in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 as on 01.01.2006 which were granted the Normal replacement Pay Structure of Grade Pay of Rs.4200 in the PB-2.
Please refer to this office letter No. HRD/1(2) 2008/Implementation of 6th CPC/16306 dated 17.03.2010 on the subject mentioned above wherein Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- in place of Rs.4200/- was allowed to the cadre of EO/AO.
In this circular, it was further clarified that as per the H.O. letter NO. HRD/1(a)2003/Pay scales/Pt.II/60951-6500-10500 notionally w.e.f. 1/04/2004 with actual financial effect from 1/9/2007, therefore the financial benefits in accordance with the DoPT circular in the cadre of EO/AO shall be effected w.e.f. 1/09/2007 onwards.
In this regard, it is to state that it has come to the notice of the Head Office that while implementing the above mentioned order of granting Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- to EO/AO, the benefit of pay fixation has also been extended by some regions, either by giving increment or by fixing the basic pay corresponding to pre-revised pay scale of Rs.7450-11500/- by using fitment table. This is totally erroneous and against the spirit of the order.
It is once again clarified that the aforesaid letter permits the grant of only Grade pay of Rs.4600 in place of Rs.4200 and no benefits of pay fixation i.e. grant of any increment of fixation of pay using fitment table corresponding to pre-revised scale of Rs.7450-11500/- are to be given in this regard. If such benefits have been given, then the recovery of the excess amount should immediately be effected and an action taken report be sent to this office by 29th October 2010 positively.
Regional P.F. Commissioner (HRM)
