All Chief Secretaries,

Subject: Stepping up of pay of senior member of All India Service vis-a-vis pay of his junior in the cadre — regarding.

Sir,

I am directed to say that references from various State Governments regarding anomalies in the pay of senior members of All India Services vis-a-vis pay of their juniors in the cadre who have been promoted to the Service or to a higher grade in the Service subsequent to the seniors, have been engaging attention of this Department.

2. The matter has been examined with reference to the existing instructions of the Government on this subject and it is stated that such anomalies on account of fixation of pay on promotion, including the promotion from State service to All India Services, can be solved by stepping up the pay of the senior member of Service at par with the pay of the junior in the cadre from the date when the anomaly arose, subject to fulfilment of following conditions:

(i) Both junior and senior should belong to the same cadre both in lower and higher grade. In the case of anomaly in the pay of officers promoted from State service to IAS/IPS/IFS in a State cadre, both junior and senior should belong to same cadre in the State Service (lower grade).

(ii) Anomaly must have arisen as a result of fixation of pay either on promotion from one grade to another in IAS/IPS/IFS or on promotion from State service to IAS/IPS/IFS, as the case may be.

(iii) Posts in higher and lower grade must be identical and in lower grade senior must not be drawing less pay than junior for whatsoever reasons.

For example if the junior officer draws higher rate of pay than the senior in the lower post or State service post by virtue of advance increments or on any other account, the above provisions will not be invoked to step up the pay of the senior officer.

Yours faithfully

Director (Services)

    The status of a government servant as on 29.08.2008 including those
    who have earned promotion between 01.01.2006 to 29.08.2008 will be
    protected as appointment/promotions are made as per the provisions of
    statutory recruitment rules applicable to the post/grade. The merger of
    the pay scale(s) of the post(s) as recommended by 6th CPC have been
    made effective w.e.f. 01.01.2006; the seniority of government servant
    which existed on 29.08.2008(date of acceptance of recommendation of
    6th CPC) ) will be maintained i.e. the holder of post having higher pay
    scale or post which constituted promotion post for the posts in the
    scale or the posts in feeder grade.
    II. Where posts having different pay scales prior to 6th CPC
    recommendation and now after merger have come to lie in the same Pay
    Band with same Grade Pay, the inter-se seniority of all the employees
    will be fully maintained with employee in a higher pre-revised pay scale
    being placed higher vis-a-vis an employee in a lower pay scale. Within
    the same pre-revised pay scale, seniority which existed prior to revision
    would continue.
    III. Where recruitment for the posts in different pre-revised pay scale(s) was
    initiated separately for each posts, prior to acceptance of
    recommendation of 6th CPC i.e. prior to 29.08.2008 but selected
    individual joined duty on or after 30.08.2008 in the revised pay scale(s)
    against the posts which have been granted same Grade pay, such
    officers will be assigned seniority enbloc below those officers who were
    in position as on 29.08.2008.
    IV. The availability of officers nominated on the basis of panel of promotion
    given by DPC or selection list given by selecting Authority will be
    decided as on 29.08.2008. In ease a officer from the panel given by
    DPC or selection list given by selecting Authority has joined on or prior
    to 29.08.2008, then status of all the officers included in panel given by
    DPC or selection list will be protected and all officer will be considered
    available and their seniority determined by following the basic principle
    of seniority i.e. order of panel given by DPC or merit list given by
    selecting Authority. In case all the officers included in the panel given
    by DPC or selection list given by selecting Authority joins after
    29.08.2008, then the seniority of such officers within a grade, will be
    determined by placing them below all available officers as on
    29.08.2008 but maintaining their interse seniority in order of panel of
    DPC or merit list given by selecting authority.
