OFFICE MEMORANDUM


Subject: Date of next increment in cases where Government servants are not able join posts in a particular grade pay on promotion/appointment on 1st of January of a year due to Sunday or Gazetted Holiday – Clarification regarding.

As per the provisions of Rule 10 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, w.e.f. 1.1.2006, in the case of all Central Government employees there is a uniform date of increment, i.e. 1st July of every year.

Government servants completing six months and above in the revised pay structure as on 1st of July are eligible to be granted the increment. From the above provision of CCS (RP) Rules it flows that Government servants who have rendered less than 6 months of service as on 1st of July of a year will not be eligible to draw increment on that day and their date of increment will fall 12 months later on the next 1st of July.

Accordingly, all the Government servants who join posts in a particular grade on account of promotion / appointment etc., on 1st of January of a year will be eligible to draw their annual increment on the 1st of July of that year. However, those who join the posts between 2nd January and 30th June, will not be eligible for the same.
In the light of the above position, some administrative departments have sought clarification from this Department regarding date of next increment in cases where Government servants are not able join posts in a particular grade pay on promotion / appointment on 1st of January of a year due to 1st of January falling on a Sunday or Gazetted holiday.

In this connection, it is clarified that in the normal course, if a Government servant was to join post in a grade pay on appointment / promotion on 1st of January of the year happened to be a Sunday or Gazetted holiday, the Government servants who join posts on the 1st working day of the year will be treated to have completed 6 months of service on 1st of July of that year for the purpose of granting them annual increment on that day.

What about those who join the posts between 2nd January and 30th June?

Whether an officer who join the service on 1st feb. a particular year have to wait for 17 months to get his first increment?

Am I right?

This is another example of “mis interpretation” of the issue by the highly qualified brains.

As per this clarification officer who join the posts between 2nd January and 30th June will not be eligible for the next increment from Ist July of the same year? i.e.- if an officer join his duty on 1st feb. have to wait for 17 month to get their 1st increment.

In another case where the date of increment in the pre-revised scale was between feb 2005 to Dec.2005, the date of increment in the new scale will be Ist July 2007.

Please clarify.

Likewise the employee who had to retire the previous day of inc date of inc. also can be notionally made to retire on inc, date (The inc. thus allowed is not a gratis . he is eligible for the same since he served for one full year prior to the crucial DNI) as a RULE.
