An officer was drawing pay of Rs. 175500 in Cell 13 of Level 13 before his appointment to officiate in Level 14 carrying duties and responsibilities of greater importance than those attaching to the post held by him before such appointment. In this case, his pay is to be fixed in the following manner under FR 35:-

On the date of his officiating appointment, he may be granted one increment (Cell 14 of Level 13- Rs. 180800) in the Level (Level 13) of the post held by him before officiating appointment. Since no cell equal to 180800 is available in Level 14 he shall be placed at the next higher cell in that Level (Rs. 182700- Cell 9 of Level 14). By such fixation of pay, the increase in pay comes to Rs. 7200 (Rs. 182700-175500). Amount of /Increase of Rs.7200 is more than increase of Rs.6700/- permissible under FR 35 and as such this increase shall be treated as substantial increase for the purpose of restriction under FR 35.

Thus, his pay is to be fixed at Rs. 182200 (175500+6700). However, as no such cell equivalent to the value of Rs. 182200 is available in Level 14, his pay is to be fixed at next Cell in Level 14, i.e. Rs. 182700 (Cell 9 in Level 14) breaching the limit of Rs.6700.
