Two Increment dates in 7th Pay commission

There is no explanation in the report of 7th CPC about the suggestion regarding the 2 Increment Days in respect of Central Government employees given by the NC JCM Staff Side. Prior to the 6th Pay Commission, there was separate increment date for each central government employees. Sixth Pay Commission recommended uniform increment date for all the central government employees and the new conditions for granting of increment. As per the sixth CPC recommendations, Government servants completing six months and above in the same Grade Pay as on 1st of July are eligible to be granted the Increment.

One who joins duty on or after 2nd January 2015, will get his annual increment on 1st July of next year i.e after rendering 17 months of service.

In such a way, those who are retiring on 30th June are denied annual increment even after completing 12 months’ service in same Grade pay.

Calculation for Annual Increment in 7th Pay Commission

The NC JCM had highlighted such anomalies in detail to the 7th Pay Commission(Click to view the Demands). To remove these anomalies NCJCM Staff Side has proposed to recommend two increment dates at the interval of six months i.e 1st January and 1st July of every year. It is expected that, if it is accepted by 7th CPC, it will address the above issues. But unfortunately 7th CPC didn’t accept this proposal and said nothing about that.

Further, it followed same recommendation of sixth cpc that granting 3% increment on 1st July of every year . But nothing has been said about the criteria for annual increment to be granted. Hence in the context of no recommendation has been made on conditions for granting annual increment, it can be assumed that the prevailing conditions for granting annual increment to be followed.

So consequent upon implementation of 7th pay commission, there will be no relevance in respect of attendance on 1st January for granting annual increment for serving employees. Finally, the rules imposed by the 6th Pay Commission, regarding the eligibility  of employees to receive the annual increments, is very likely to continue after 01.01.2016.

But the commission is proposing withholding of annual increments in the case of those employees who are not able to meet the benchmark either for MACP or a regular promotion within the first 20 years of their service.[Continue to Read : withholding of annual increments ]

    Did an employee have a option take the effect of 7th cpc on or after his next Promotion due to non grade pay system

  2. I retired on 30/6/2009 & every month I stand to lose around Rs.500/, which is a cumulative loss, as I did not get my annual increment on 1/7/2009, as I was not on duty, though I worked for 12 months.

  3. The issue has been decided by hon supreme court who ruled that the issue to be decided by government by issue of instruction . for the same all members of NAJCM MUST TAKE UP THE ISSUE WITH GOVT. SIMILARLY THW issue OF RETIREMEMT OF EMPLOYEE WHO BORN ON 1st Jan& 1st july needs to be taken up. Because of their retirement on 31st Dec& 30th June, they lose considerable amount by way of settlement dues and increments of july

  4. If i am correct, As per supreme court judgement, thus has to be decided at the level of govt by Issuing necessary instruction. All federations must take this issue with NJCM. KINDLY GO TH. JUDGEMENT OF HON SUPREME COURT

  5. dear NC JCM members,
    the subject for granting increment two times in a year is appreciable.
    At the same, kindly take up the issue, those employees who are having date of birth on 1st Jan. 2016 are forced to superannuate on 31st Dec.2015. Even after spending 10 long years, with out the benefit of 7th CPC are superannuating.
    Actually, till midnight of 31st Dec. 2015, they are the employees only, only from 1st Jan. 2016 they are treated as pensioners.
    Hence, as on 1st Jan. 2016, whatever benefits are made available, it shall be extended to them also who are having date of birth 1st Jan. 2016.
    Requested to take up this issue also on priority basis.
