FIXATION OF PAY
EMPLOYEES’ PROVIDENT FUND ORGANISATION
Dated: 19 Oct 2010
Subject: Grant of Pay Structure of Grade Pay of Rs.4600 in PB-2 to the post that exists in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 as on 01.01.2006 which were granted the Normal replacement Pay Structure of Grade Pay of Rs.4200 in the PB-2.
In this circular, it was further clarified that as per the H.O. letter NO. HRD/1(a)2003/Pay scales/Pt.II/60951-6500-10500 notionally w.e.f. 1/04/2004 with actual financial effect from 1/9/2007, therefore the financial benefits in accordance with the DoPT circular in the cadre of EO/AO shall be effected w.e.f. 1/09/2007 onwards.
In this regard, it is to state that it has come to the notice of the Head Office that while implementing the above mentioned order of granting Grade Pay of Rs.4600/- to EO/AO, the benefit of pay fixation has also been extended by some regions, either by giving increment or by fixing the basci pay corresponding to pre-revised pay scale of Rs.7450-11500/- by using fitment table. This is totally erroneous and agaisnt the spirit of the order.
It is once again clarified that the aforesaid letter permists the grant of only Grade pay of Rs.4600 in place of Rs.4200 and no benefits of pay fixation i.e. grant of any increment of fixation of pay using fitment table corresponding to pre-revised scasle of Rs.7450-11500/- are to be given in this regard. If such benefits have been given, then the recovery of the excess amount should immediately be effected and an action taken report be sent to this office by 29th October 2010 positively.
It is regretted that no action is seen to have been initiated by the Govt. regarding implementation of MACP for the promotes who have rendered more than 30(thirty) years service after getting promotion through Competitive Departmental Examination and got only 2(two)Up-gradations during their service life.
I would request the concerned authorities to look into the matter for considering sympathetically as they got the promotion establishing their competency through examination.
