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.

Banking services at the State Bank of India (SBI) are likely to be disrupted from April 3 onwards as the employees and officers of the largest commercial bank of the country are to proceed on an indefinite strike demanding revision in pension scheme.
“More than two lakh employees and officers of the bank will participate in the strike seeking revision in the pension scheme,” All India State Bank Officers’ Association (AISBOA) general secretary, Shantha Raju said on Tuesday.
He added that All India SBI Staff Federation would also join the strike. Elaborating the demand, Mr Raju said that the pension ceiling at the bank had been kept unchanged at Rs 4,250 based on the salary structure of 1992 salary revision.
“We demand pension amount should be hiked at par with other organisations where they pay pensions amounting to 50% of the last salary drawn,” Mr Raju added
