Agenda

Decision

1.

Fixation of Pay in Revised Pay Scale:

As per Clause (A) (ii) of Rule 7 (i) of Revised Pay Rules 2008, the Pay fixation for the pre revised basic pay of Rs.5600 in the scale of Rs.5000 – 8000 should be (Rs.6500 X 1.86 = Rs.12090) + Rs.4200 GP = Rs.16290, instead of (Rs.5600 X 1.86 = 10420) + Rs.4200 GP = Rs.14620 (As per Clause (A) (i) of Rule 7(i) of Revised Pay rules 2008)

After some discussion, the official side stated to have a re-look into the matter.

2.

Option

First option exercised within three months may not be treated as final and the employees be permitted to revise the option within six month of the date of exercising the first option.

Option exercised by the officials under F.R. 22(I)(A(1) on promotion has been restricted to only first promotion, which appears to be unreasonable.

The official side has agreed to allow another option.

The official side has agreed to examine whether the above option can be allowed to cover all promotions.

3.

Date of Next Increment

Persons, whose increment falls between 1st February and 1st June, 2006 may be given one increment on 1.1.2006 as a one time measure.

It was pointed out by the staff side that, they have made the suggestion for a one time measure on the specific understanding that Rule 9 of the Revised Pay Rules 2008 has no applicable in the fixation of increment date in future as in those cases, the Fundamental Rules will have the application.

Official side agreed to issue orders to cover those in service between 1.1.2006 and 1.7.2006 as a one time measure.

The official side after some discussion agreed to reconsider the issue in the light of the contention made by the Staff Side.

4.

Benefit on Promotion

Staff side proposed that minimum benefit on promotion should not be less than 10% of the Pay+Grade Pay of the feeder post.

Official side will further discuss the issue outside the forum of Anomaly committee.

5.

Fixation on Promotion

On promotion to the higher grade, pay of an employee should be fixed appropriately and in any case it should not be less than the entry Pay in the revised pay structure for direct recruits appointed on of after 1.1.2006 for the post.

The Official Side agreed to issue enabling orders in the matter.

(Anomaly of senior promotive SE/SSE in the GP Rs.4600 fixed less pay than Junior Direct entrant who joined later will be removed.)

6.
