The Central Govt has decided to implement the two date option with effect from 1.1.2016 as per 7th CPC recommendations. Before that, only one date (1st July of every year) for annual increment in the regime of 6th Pay Commission.
Calculation of Annual Increment
The rate of Annual Increment is 3% of Basic Pay (Matrix Pay). However, there is no calculation of 3% of basic pay. All we know the 7th Pay Commission designed and recommended the Pay Matrix Table for all group of CG Employees. From the table itself, we could see the next basic pay with annual increment. Let’s explain with an illustration…
In case of an employee is in the basic pay of Rs.33,300 in Level 4. When he gets an annual increment on 1st July 2019, he will just move one stage down (next cell of the same pay matrix level) in the same level. Hence after increment, his pay will be Rs.34,300
