OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Pay fixation of direct recruit Assistants appointed after 1.1.2006- Stepping up of pay of DRs with reference to the pay of junior promotee Assistants- Clarification regarding.

The undersigned is directed to draw attention to the issue of stepping up of pay of direct recruit Assistants, appointed on or after 1.1.2006 at par with the pay of the UDCs promoted and appointed to the post of Assistant between 1.1.2006 to 31.8.2008 whose pay has been fixed in terms of para 2(c) of Department of Expenditure’s U.0. No.10/ 1/2009-IC dated 14.12.2009.

2. The matter has been examined in this Department in consultation with the Department of Expenditure and they are of the view that as per the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, the stepping up of pay is allowed if the anomaly in pay, if at all arising, is a direct outcome of fixation of pay in the revised pay scale from the pre-revised scale to the effect that the senior who was drawing higher pay in the pre-revised scale, starts drawing lower pay in the revised scale. However, in the case of direct recruit Assistants appointed on or after 1.1.2006, the direct recruits never drew the pre-revised pay prior to 1.1.2006. Further, Department of Expenditure’s U.O. dated 14.12.2009 relates to fixation of pay in revised scale from pre-revised scale of pay.

3. All the Ministries/Departments are therefore advised to review all the cases wherein stepping up of pay has been allowed to direct recruit Assistants appointed on or after 1.1.2006 with reference to the pay of their junior promotee Assistants. The pay fixation in revised pay structure of such direct recruit Assistants be revised immediately and action be initiated for effecting recoveries of excess payments, if any, as per extant instructions.

  1. A direct recruit inspector joined govt department on November 2015 in the Income tax department in Odisha. The department has made pay fixationon on 01.01.2016, giving bunching benefit of 7th pay commission with compairation to the pay of a promote inspector. The pay of the DR inspector is fixed at Rs 55,200/- just short of 900 rupees from the pay of direct recruit class one IRS officer. Now the question is whether it is a magic or miracles of the Government orders that allows 7 increments to an employee having only 2 months service. Moreover the promote inspector is promoted and holding the post of inspector from August 2015, four months before the direct recruit inspector joining govt service. The Government departments like DOPT etc. responsible for issuing OMs / circulars as well as clarification should give full clarity and leave no room for ambiguity. Therefore the deserving employees should only get the benefit and not entangled in recovery of pay on latter stages and court cases. Jai hind…
