Subject:- Non-Functional Upgradation (NFU) for Officers of Organised Group ‘A’ Services in PB-3 and PB-4
A reference is invited to this Department’s OM of even number dated
24.4.09 on the above subject. The Sixth Central Pay Commission had observed that the disparity, as far as appointments to various grades in the Centre are concerned, should not exceed 2 years between IAS and Organized Group ‘A’ Services. The matter relating to grant of Non-Functional Upgradation to officers of Organized Group A Services has
further been examined in this Department and following clarifications are issued.
|Point of doubt
|The scheme of NFU be made applicable to JTS officer of Organized group A services in view of acute stagnation at the level of JTS in many services.
|In case no IAS Officer is available for comparison in STS grade, grant of Non-Functional Upgradation to STS level may be allowed after 7 years of service as Group ‘A’. This upgradation shall be subject to the terms and conditions specified in this Department OM dated 24.04.09.
|The term ‘Batch’ cannot have different meanings at different places.
|The ‘Batch’ for direct recruit officers in the induction grade shall be the year following the year in which competitive exam was held. In subsequent grades the ‘Batch’ would remain the same provided the officer is not superseded due to any reason. In case an officer is superseded the officer would be considered along with the ‘Batch’ with which his seniority is fixed.
2. Hindi version will follow.
