Fixation of Pay on promotion.

In the case of Promotion from one grade to another in the revised pay structure, the fixation is presently done as under:-
(a) One increment equal to 3% of the sum of the Pay in Pay Band and Grade Pay will be computed and rounded off to the multiple of 10. This will be added to the existing Pay in the Pay Band.
(b) However, the Pay so fixed must not be less than the minimum of the Pay Band to which he is promoted.
(c) The individual so promoted will get the Grade Pay assigned to the cadre to which he is promoted.

Did you know how the 6th CPC Multiplication Factor of 1.86 was derived?


Did you know how the 6th CPC’s Multiplication Factor of 1.86 was derived?

The 6th Pay Commission had recommended a Multiplication Factor of 1.74, but the Central Government chose to change it to 1.86. One of the reasons for this modification was the intense pressure from various Federations of Central Government Employees. It has to be mentioned at this point that all the federations had presented demands to the Government to raise the minimum basic pay to Rs. 10,000.

Exactly how did the Government arrive at 1.86? Here is an explanation how –

Let us assume the Basic Pay, as of 01.01.2006, as 100%. Let’s take the Dearness pay (post the 50% DA Merger) as 50%. Let us also take into account the 24% Dearness Allowance that was given before 01.01.2006.

If you add Basic Pay and Dearness Pay and calculate 24% of it, then you’d get 36%. (100 + 50 = 150 / 24 x 100 = 36)

100% + 50% + 36% = 186%

This number is being taken for calculations as 1.86.

At the time of 6th CPC Pay Fixation, the last drawn Basic Pay under 5th CPC was multiplied by 1.86 and rounded off. It was also explained that a new entity named Grade Pay was created and a sum total of this was the new Basic Pay.

Hence, it was impossible to consider 1.86 as the true yardstick. For example, for a basic pay of Rs. 3050…
3050 x 1.86 = 5680 (After rounded off)
Corresponding Grade Pay for 3050 is 1900,
Band Pay 5680 + Grade Pay 1900 = Basic Pay 7580
5th CPC basic pay = 3050
6th CPC basic pay = 7580
The multiplication factor number comes to 2.48.

It is not possible to take 2.48 as common for all basic pays. But, 2.48 was considered very low. That’s why we have used a bigger number to calculate in the 7th CPC’s Expected Pay Scale.

Fixation of Pay in the revised pay structure for running staff promoted as on 01.01.2006 or thereafter

Fixation of Pay in the revised pay structure for running staff promoted as on 01.01.2006 or thereafter

GOVERNMENT OF INDIA
MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
RAILWAY BOARD

RBE No. 30/2014

No. E(P&A)II/2010/RS-27

New Dated : 21.03.2014

The General Managers,
All Indian Railways.

Sub : Fixation of Pay in the revised pay structure for running staff promoted as on 01.01.2006 or thereafter.

1. Eastern Railway had raised a query on the matter of fixation of pay thus :

“This Railway is facing difficulty while implementing Rule-11 of Board’s RBE No. 103/2008 for those running staff who were promoted from non-running general category to running category on or after 01.01.2006 and subsequently elected to switch over to VIth CPC with effect from the date, of their promotion/up-gradation etc. Clarification from Board is sought for whether 30% pay element will be taken into account while calculating the Dearness Pay applicable at pre-revised scale Vth CPC) on the date of promotion and Dearness Allowance as on 01.01.2006 as per Board’s RBE No. 140/2004.”

2. The matter was deliberated upon in consultation with Finance Directorate of Railway Board and it was observed that as per Rule 5 of RS(RP) Rules, 2008 a new provision of option was introduced for the implementation of 6th CPC pay structure. As per this option a person promoted to a post during the period from date of effect of revised pay structure to date of notification may switch over to the revised pay structure after effecting the promotion.

2.1 Thus, an employee getting promoted from a stationary post to the Running post as Guard, during above period, was eligible to opt to continue in pre-revised pay structure until his promotion as Guard and switch over to revised, pay structure n tier effecting the promotion.

2.2 In such au eventuality he would lose his arrears on account of 6th CPC till such date of option/switching over. Further, his next increment will also be released on subsequent 1 July only if he completes six months qualifying service in the revised pay structure prior to the 1st July of relevent year.

3. Since such employees, as given in the situation quoted by E., Railway above were holding running posts at the time of switching over to the revised pay structure, their pay fixation should be as per methodology applicable to the running staff. In this connection, clarification 3 of Board’s letter No. PCVI./2008/I/RSRP/1 dated 25.09.2008, that fitment tables may be used in the cases when employee switches over to revised pay structure from a date subsequent to 1.1.2006, is also relevant. Accordingly, fitment table as applicable to the running staff may be used in such cases.

4. This disposes of E.Rly’s D.O. letter No. E/SPC/2008/Refd. dt. April 22, 2010.

5. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate.

6. Please acknowledge receipt.
