Sub: Fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying the same Grade pay.
It was agreed in the last National Anomaly Committee meeting held on 17th July, 2012( as could be seen from the minutes issued in this regard) that in cases where promotion to a post carrying the same grade pay, benefit of one increment would be considered subject to the condition that the promotional post carries higher duties and responsibilities under FR 22 and fixation benefit under FR 22 (1)(a)(i) was available prior to the implementation of the 6th CPC report and the merger of the two grades was not on functional considerations. However, in implementation of this agreement, no formal orders were issued so far. We, therefore, request that necessary instruction may kindly be caused to be issued to grant one increment benefit to all those employees who are promoted where the feeder cadre and the promotion cadre carry the same grade pay, provided the promotional grade is declared to be a post carrying higher responsibilities. All those who were promoted during the period between 1.1.2006 and the date of issue of the instruction may also be covered by the said instruction specifically.
