the case may be, get fixed at same Cell in the applicable Level in the new Pay Matrix, one additional increment shall be given for every two stages bunched and the pay Of Government servant drawing higher pay in pre-revised structure shall be fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level.

Bunching benefit in Pay fixation is recommended by 7th pay commission in some situation

2. For this purpose, pay drawn by two Government servants in a given Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale where the higher pay is at least 3% more than the lower pay shall constitute two stages. Officers drawing pay where the difference is less than 3% shall not be entitled for this benefit.

3. As per illustration given in para 5.1.37 of the Report of the 7th Central Pay Commission, if two persons drawing pay of ₹53,000 and ₹ 54590 in the GP 10,000 are to be fitted in the new Pay Matrix, the person drawing pay of ₹53,000 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to ₹1,36,210and the person drawing pay Of ₹54,590 on multiplication by a factor Of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to ₹1,40,296. Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of Level 14 in the pay of ₹ 1,44,200 but to avoid bunching the person drawing pay of ₹ 54,590 will get fixed in second cell Of Level 14 in the pay Of ₹148500

  1. OFFICE MEMORANDUM
    Subject: Recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission — bunching of stages in the revised pay structure under Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016. The above subject om does not give any clarity about bunching of pay due to the difference of pay between direct recruit employee and promote employee. As per the latest om of DOPT on bunching between DR ASO and promote ASO , it is pending clarification from Dept of expenditure. Yet some departments where direct recruit and promote elements exist, have carried out pay fixation based on bunching. In Income tax department fixation of payment is done for direct recruit inspector having only 2 months total govt service, giving 7 increments as bunching benefit on computation with the prerevised lower pay drawn by the promote inspector. The injustice meeted to the promotes employees by the 6 th pay commission again, aggravated by the 7th pay commission bunching ambiguity. Why so much confusion, when things can be explained with simple words. In 6thCPC, the promote employees are placed at disadvantage in pay as they are not placed at the minimum entry pay ment for the direct recruits on their promotion. Now the ambiguity of applicability of bunching brings more disparity of pay between promote and direct recruits. Therefore it is enerstely desired to provide clarification in simple terms for the benefit of employees.

  2. Bunching increment OM doesnt say it is applicable for only people who are fixed at initial cell of the scale. So, it is applicable at all the scales.
