Fixation of Pay on Promotion or Upgradation as per Revised Pay Rules, 2008

Fixation of Pay on Promotion or Upgradation as per Revised Pay Rules, 2008

Many of our visitors are still asking some doubts pertaining the Fixation of Pay on Promotion or Upgradation. Particularly getting confusion in the calculation of annual and promotional increment and it will be rounded off.

Every Government employee has to submit an option when he gets promotion or upgradation. The option is under rule FR22(I)(a)(1) and the option have to submit within one month from the date of promotion or upgradation. When an employee accepts the promotion he will be asked to opt whether his pay will be fixed on the date of promotion or the date of next increment. His pay will be fixed as per the option has been exercised by him under rule FR22(I)(a)(1).

The Rule No.13 of CCS (Revised Pay-2008) says, “On promotion an employee will get one increment equal to three per cent of his basic pay (Pay in the pay band + Grade pay).

For illustration… If an employee opts to get his pay fixed in the higher post from the date of his promotion(1.12.2010), his pay will be fixed as follows…

His Basic pay on the date of promotion (as on 1.12.2010) : 11,500 + 2,800 = 14,300
Adding of 3% of Basic pay as Promotional increment (rounded off to the next multiple of ten) : 430 + 11,500 + 2,800 = 14,730
Promoted to in which Grade pay : 4200
Pay will be fixed on the date of promotion (as on 1.12.2010) : 11,930 + 4200 = 16,130
Date of next increment on July 2011
On the date of next increment his pay will be i.e. 1st July 2011 : Adding of 3% of Basic pay as Annual increment (rounded off to the next multiple of ten) : 490 + 11,930 + 4,200 = 16,620


For example, the same employee, if he gets his promotion on 1.2.2011, his basic pay will be calculated as follows…

He should be given his option to fix his pay under rule FR22(I)(a)(1) on the date of next increment.

His Basic pay on the date of promotion (as on 1.02.2011) : 11,500 + 2,800 = 14,300
Adding only the next higher Grade pay in the promotional hierarchy :

The pay continues upto the date of next increment i.e., July, 2011

11,500 + 4,200 = 15,700
On the day of next increment the pay will be refixed (as on 1.07.2011) :

Adding of 3% of Basic pay as Promotional increment (rounded off to the next multiple of ten) :

11,500 + 2,800 + 430 = 14,730
On the day of next increment the pay will be refixed (as on 1.07.2011) :

Adding of 3% of Basic pay as Annual increment (rounded off to the next multiple of ten) :

11,930 + 2,800 + 450 = 15,180
His pay will be on 1.07.2011 :td>

12,380 + 4,200 = 16,580

When calculate the annual or promotional increment to an employee, there should be a rule should follow as per the office memorandum (F.No.1/1/2008-IC / published by Finmin dated on 29.01.2009 . The rule says, “if the amount of increment comes to Rs.1900.70 paise, then the amount will be rounded off to Rs.1900; if the amount of increment works out to be Rs.1901, then it will be rounded off to Rs.1910.

Normally, the fraction of 50 paise and above to be rounded to one rupee and fraction of less than 50 paise to be ignored. But whereas here, the fraction of 90 paise will be ignored and one rupee and above will be rounded off to ten rupees.

    Please go through the following representation of mine regarding date of next increment and kindly confirm whether I am correct or not.
    I was in receipt of basic pay of Rs 6900 (pre-revised) as on 01 January 2006 (date of implementation of 6 CPC). My pay in Pay Band (PB) was fixed at Rs 12840 in PB2 plus Grade pay of Rs 4800. First increment after implementation of 6 CPC was also released on 01 July 2006.
    2. On 13 June 2011, the Office of the Comptroller and Auditor General of India, New Delhi issued orders regarding fixation of pay of AAOs (AAOs promoted prior to implementation of 6 CPC, Promoted between 01 January 2006 and 28 August 2008 and after 28 August 2008). As per these orders the pay (Pay in PB + GP) of AAOs who were promoted between 01 January 2006 and 28 August 2008 was fixed at Rs 13950 in PB2 + GP- Rs 4800.
    3. My pay was stepped up to the pay of my junior Rs 13950 in PB2from the date of his promotion i.e., 13 January 2006. My date of increment had been postponed to 01 July 2007 from 01 January 2006.
    4. In this connection, I would like to invite your kind attention to the following provisions of 6 CPC.
    (i) Headquarters office while issuing the orders dated 13 June 2011 ordered to rectify the pay anomaly of AAO who were promoted prior to 01 January 2006, as per Note 10 under Rule 7 of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008. It was no where mentioned in Note 10 under Rule 7 regarding postponement of increment of senior government servant. As this anomaly was arised due to implementation of 6 CPC and revised pay structure, the anomaly is to be regulated as per the GOI decision 18(b) under FR 22.
    (ii) As per Note 1 below Rule 10, even if the pay of senior government servant is required to be stepped up with that of pay his junior from the date of junior drawing higher pay, the date of increment is required to be regulated as per Rule 10.
    As per Rule 10, employees completing 6 months and above in the revised pay structure as on 1st July will be eligible to be granted the increment. The first increment after fixation of pay on 01 January 2006 in the revised pay structure will be granted on 01.07.2006 for those employees for whom the date of next increment was between 01 July 2006 and 01 January 2007.
    (iii) As per Rule 3(7), revised pay structure means the Pay Band AND Grade Pay. As per Rule 3(8) Basic pay in the revised pay structure means pay in pay band PLUS grade pay.
    5. In the present case, I was switched over to the 6 CPC from 01.01.2006 and my pay was fixed in PB2 with Grade pay of Rs 4800. After stepping up of my pay with junior also my pay was in PB2 only and also there was no change in the Grade pay. Though there was a change in my basic pay (Pay in pay band plus grade pay) there was no change in the revised pay structure (Pay Band and Grade pay). As there was no change in my revised pay structure (no change in PAY BAND AND GRADE PAY) from 01 January 2006 to 30 June 2006 and completed 6 months in the REVISED PAY STRUCTURE as on 01 July 2006, I am entitled for grant of increment on 01 July 2006 as per Rule 10 of CCS (REVISED PAY) RULES, 2008. Further, I had drawn my annual increment in December 2005 in the pre-revised scale, my annual increment was due in December 2006. The second condition of Rule 10 for grant of first increment after 01.01.2006 also satisfied in my case. Even if considering this aspect I am entitled for grant of increment on 01 July 2006.
    6. Earlier (as per pre-revised rules), the postponement of date of increment of senior was to be done, as the date of increment was related with the completion 12 months service in a particular BASIC PAY. After implementation of 6 CPC, date of increment is related with the completion of required service of 6 months in the REVISED PAY STRUCTURE and not in BASIC PAY.
    7. In view of the above mentioned revised pay rules and definitions of BASIC PAY and REVISED PAY STRUCTURE, I am entitled for grant of increment on 01 July 2006 itself and not on 01 July 2007.

  2. RANJU KUMARI says

    Respected Sir/Madam,
    The Post of LDC is Upgraded to UDC in many Central Government Departments. I want to know that if an LDC with Basic 5200-20200 & Grade Pay 1900 Upgraded to UDC due to upgradation of Post, what will be his Pay? As I have heard that fixation of new Upgraded UDC should be done on Basic Rs.7610 & Grade Pay Rs.2400 or there will only change in the Grade Pay from 1900 to 2400 with the same Basic Rs.5830/-

    Sir/Madam, Kindly say me the rule with one such Example for the Fixation.

    Sir, Hoping for the Early response.

    With Regards,

    I am appointed in an central government organisation with two increments in 2012. The residential period for the next promotion for the current post is 4 years. Now the question is, since I got two increments, will it also account as two years and my next promotion would be on 2014 or I have serve the complete 4 years of service to get promoted ie by 2016. Could you please clarify.

  6. Subhash Chander Bhatia says

    See ,if there is any change in policy after the first option you gave, you can certainly change your option, other vise, option once given,can’t be changed. Recently ,the anomaly committee has recommended an increments to those whose DOI fell between 2 January and 30 June. If you fall under this category, you may certainly change your option if you feel you may have some benefit.

    Upgradation in Revised Scale due to merger of three pre-revised scales TO: 1 More1 recipientCC: recipientsYou MoreBCC: recipientsYou

    Wednesday ,16 May 2012

    Dear sir,

    Thanks for your mail.

    I would like to inform you that I have joined in February, 1987, got IInd MACP w.e.f. 1/2/2007. As on 1/1/2006 I was in pre-revised scale of Rs.5000-8000 with a basic pay of Rs.6800/- As per 6th pay my fixation was done by mistake / in pay scale of Rs.9300-34800 in Pay Band of Rs.12,650/- with Grade Pay of Rs.4600/-. Till date I have not received any promotion / not received even a single rupee payment of Arrears due to implementation of 6th pay commission.

    Our`s is an Autonomous Educational and Research Institute receiving Grants from Ministry of Human Resource, Govt. of India (AICTE) running various Degree & Master`s Level Programmes

    As per Govt.of India, Ministry of Finance, Dept. of Expenditure, Implementation Cell Order No.F.No.1/1/2008-IC dt.13th November,2009 i.e. Grant of the revised pay structure of grade pay of Rs.4600/- in pay band PB-2 to posts that existed in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 as on 1/1/2006 due to merger of the three pre-revised scales of Rs.5000-8000, Rs.5500-9000 & Rs.6500-10500, some posts which constituted feeder & promotion grades would come to lie in an identical grade, granted higher grade pay of Rs.4600/- to these three posts, being upgraded to the next higher grade in pay band PB-2 wwith grade pay of Rs.4600/- corresponding to the pre-revised scale of Rs.7450-11500 w.e.f. 1/1/2006

    Accordingly my pay fixation should be made in pre-revised pay scale of Rs.7450-225-11500 into the corresponding Revised Pay Scale of Rs.9300-34800 in Pay Band of Rs.13,860/- with Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- w.e.f. 1/1/2006 as per 6th pay commission.

    Now the problem is our Accounts Dept. is not accepting Pay Fixation done / not paying my salary / different / arrears amount since 1/1/2006 based on this Govt.order dt.13th November,2009.

    You are, therefore, requested to check / inquire with the Relevant / Concerned Govt. Authorities about my pay fixation as per guidelines of this Govt.order dt.13th November, 2009 on top priority basis , so as to enable me to get my right, because I am in loss of Huge Amount due to non-acceptance of Govt.order / pay fixation / non payment of salary.

    Pl. treat this most urgent and take up this matter on top most priority basis.
    With regards,
    Gopal Shah

  11. Sailendra Prasad says

    when 6th Central Pay Commission implemented for first time w.e.f. 01/09/2008 an option form was circulated to opt the benefits of 6th CPC from 01/01/2006 or the date of next increment or from the date of promotion etc. but now scenario is changed and many amendments come after course of time. Now the FINMIN ORDERS on Date of next increment in the revised pay structure under Rule 10 of the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008. dated 19/03/2012 and four grade pay structure for industrial employees come into existence. But what is about the option exercised before these amendments took place. So there should be given chance to again exercise the option to select the date of adoption of benefits of 6th CPC w.e.f. 01/01/2006 or otherwise.

  12. Sailendra Prasad says

    Dear Friend Upendra Singh those who Appointed after 01/01/2006 being Sunday now 02/01/2006 the separate fitment table is applicable and you will be fixed in minimum of the Pay Scale for your Post as Per Annexure-II of 6th CPC. and your Date of Next Increment will be 01/07/2007

    Dear Sir,
    I would like to highlight my problems to you regarding fixation of my pay on promotion.
    That, I am working as Assistant Audit Officer under CAG of India in O/o the Accountant General (Au), Manipur, Imphal. I passed SAS exam in September, 2011 and joined duty as AAO on 1st December, 2011 which was treated as promotion. And my pay on 1-12-2012 was fixed at Rs. 13,350/- (entry level). The fact is that, there are two directly recruited AAOs who pay were fixed at Rs. 13900/-(one increment) but were treated as junior to me since they are yet to complete their Probation (not yet confirmed as AAOs). How should my pay be fixed as and when? Pls respond positively.

  17. M Jyothi says

    Dear friends,

    I was in the post of Sr. Steno as on 01.01.2006 with GP 4200. w.e.f. 01.09.2008 I was given MACP with GP 4600.

    Subsequently I have qualified in the DTQ and got promotion to GP 4800.
    In the pay fixation 3% increment benefit was not given saying that since you are in MACP, U R not entitled for increment benefit.

    My doubt is if the promotion is in DPC there may not be increment, but if the promotion is in DTQ then increment benefit should be given. Kindly clarify

    I submit herewith a representation regarding anomaly in fixation of my pay under 6th CPC.
    I joined in IA&AD on 10.07.2003 as C/T in the pre-revised scale of Rs.3050-4590/- and w.e.f 22.02.2006 rendered service as DEO (ex-cadre) in the scale of Rs.4000-6000/-on deputation basis in the same office and on 25.05.2007 I was promoted to the post of Accountant in the scale of Rs.4500-7000/-(pre-revised). I was relieved from this office w.e.f 06.05.2011 to enable me to join to the post of AAO in other office on passing SAS deptmentl exam (grade pay Rs.4800)
    The fixation of my pay as done by the office under 6th CPC with option 1.1.2006 is found not in order as per 6th CPC Report, Notifications and clarifications.
    The fixation of pay as done by the office is as follow:
    01.01.2006 6060+1900 (CT pay w.r.t Rs.3200 in fitment table)
    22.02.2006 7440+2400 (DEO pay w.r.t Rs.4000 in fitment table)
    25.05.2007 8370+2800 (Acctt pay w.r.t. Rs. 4500 in fitment table)
    01.07.2008 8710+2800
    01.07.2009 9060+2800
    01.07.2010 9420+2800 (LPC)
    The fixation of pay under 6th CPC with per my fresh option (w.e.f 25.05.2007) may be done as follow:
    01.01.2006 Rs.3200/-(Rs.3050-4590/-) no change, 5th CPC
    22.02.2006 Rs. 4000/- (Rs.4000-6000/-) ex-cadre post of DEO (deputation) 5th CPC
    01.02.2007 Rs.4100/- 5th CPC
    25.05.2007 Rs.4500/-(Rs.4500-7000/-) promoted to the post of Acctt.5th CPC
    25.05.2007 Rs.8370/- + Rs.2800/- (PB-I) 6th CPC
    01.07.2008 Rs.8710/- + Rs.2800/-
    01.07.2009 Rs.9060/- + Rs.2800/-
    01.07.2010 Rs.9420/- + Rs.2800/- (LPC tallies)

    It is seen that the L.P.C already issued from the office need not to be changed as it tallies with LPC already issued earlier to me on my relieving on 06.05.2011. Only an overpayment of pay & allowances w.e.f 01.01.2006 to 24.05.2007 was paid to me..
    As per F.No.7/14/2010-E.III (A) Government of India, Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure the Govt. employees may be permitted to revise their initial option up to 31.12.2010 if the option is more beneficial to them.

  26. vijay parkash gupta says

    i took voluntary retd. on 3.3.2006 and my next increment was due on 1.4.2006.
    now as per latest order No.10/02/2011/E-III/A dated 19.3.2012. my basic on 1.1.2006 prior to this s 23220 (ie. 9900×1.86 +4800) and after this order is to be 10100X1.86 +4800 i.e 23590.
    2. that, the same was fixed my department and arrears of pay from 1.1.2006 to 3.3.2006 was drawn i.e 775 thro our P&AO.
    3. that, when my case goes for revision of PPO to the same P&AO he creates confusion that i was not in service on 1.4.2006 to earn one increment in pre revised scale. i took voluntary retd on 3.3.2006
    4. that, from the above order it is clear that increment of all those who were due to get their next increment in feb to june 2006 has been advanced to 1.1.2006 in the pre revised scale to remove the anomaly created by fixing all employees for 1.7.2006 their date of next increment.
    5. that staff side represented as they were getting increments only @3% after 13months ( 1.2.2005 to 1.7.2006) ,after 14 months (1.3.2005 to 1.7.2006), after 15 months (1.4.2005 to 1.7.2006), after 16 months (1.5.2005 to 1.7.2006), after 17 months (1.6.2005 to 1.7.2006).
    6. that, whereas those employees who just earned earned one increment on 1.1.2006 in pre revised scale were benefited with two increments in just 18 months one in pre revised scale and then after 6 months in the revised scale @3% on 1.7.2006
    7. that, my case is for one increment in pre revised scale only . similarly for all those who were in service on 1.1.2006 and whose next date of increment was due in feb to june 2006 though they might have retired on any date.
    8. please clarify if all those who retired on 1.1.2006 or after, voluntarily or on suparnuation without earning their next of increment was due from 1.2.2006 to 1.6.2006 is to be treated like those in service as their increment was also advanced to 1.1.2006

  27. vishwajeet says

    I wish to know te defintion of the term ‘regular service’, as acc to 6 th CPC in my case, 4 years of regular service is required befor gettin benefits of PB 5400 from 4800, but P.A.O. has objected that in our (me and ors) case, date of promotion of Sept 2002 is of ‘deemed seniority’ obtained after ordersof Hon C.A.T. – due to erroneously prepared seniority list, which was rectified by Hon CAT order and promotion given with backdated seniority (from Sept 2002) in Jan 2005. Is not my service to be counted as regular srevice?

  28. sanjeet says

    i joined CAT Patna on 26.04.1995 as UDC in 4000-100-6000. I was granted ACP in 5500-9000 in Assistant w.e.f 26.04.2007. MY pay was fixed at 5500 on 26.04.2007. During Sep. 2008 I opted for pay fixation w.e.f. 01.01.2006 in revised pay structure. But no advice was given to get my pay fixed from date of ACP i.e. 26.04.2007. I have not given any option for ACP nor the office took it from me. I am still in GP 4200 though G. pay of Assistant has been revised to 4600.(7450-1150). Can I opt to get my pay fixed from date of ACP now.

  29. scantyvan says

    dear sir,
    well sir i want to clarify on my present pay.i have joined a job in 2007 in the grade pay 4200 and on april 2012 i got promoted to next grade pay of 4600.i have submitted the option of fixation on annual increment.So kindly tell me what will be my basic pay now?

  30. CADIRVELOU says

    Dear sir,
    I too have a similar problem like yours. my appointment date is 26-03-1999.My junior was appointed on 02-01-2006, based on which my pay was stepped to 12540 + GP 4600, whereas my increment date is postponed to 01-07-2007 i,e, increment date of my junior.
    whereas my contention is that since my junior is also compeleting 6 months of service as on 01-07-2006 she is also entitled for increment and similarly i also should be given increment.
    kindly reply me in this email about your poisition. whether your office has given you increment or you got any further clarification in your matter which will be helpful to me.

    Dear Sir,
    I am working in a Semi-Govt office at Churchguate, Mumbai. Govt. of Maharashtra sanctioned 6th pay for our department from 01-03-2013. But our management is not ready to make fixation from 01-01-2006. and in his personal fixation he got it from 01-01-2006. Insted of that they are doing fixation from 01-03-2013. ie. our 5th pay basic as on 01-03-2013 x 1.86= pay band of 6th pay. But sir, this 1.86 formula basically using for fixation from 01-01-2013. because of this we all are loosing lot even some of employees salary even goes below than 5th pay. please tell me what is the solution. please help us.

  39. admin says

    As per the rules said in FR22(I)(a)(I), fixation of pay on promotion on the option of the pormotee, may be fixed on promotion date or increment date. certainly you should be asked to fix your promotion on increment date of July 2012. The option should be given within one month from the date of receipt of official order for promotion. You may claim or represent your obligation in writing to your head of office.

But the problem is my establishment section fixed my payband minimum of 12540 as on 1/07/13. please give me your opinion.
