Illustration 3

An officer was drawing pay of Rs.36500 in Cell 2 of Level 6 before his appointment to officiate in Level 7 carrying duties and responsibilities of greater importance than those attaching to the post held by him before such appointment. In this case, his basic 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 3 of Level 6 Rs.37600) in the Level (Level 6) of the post held by him before officiating appointment. However, no cell equal to amount of Rs. 37600 is available in Level 7 as minimum Cell value in Level 7 is Rs.44900 (Cell 1 of Level 7). If his pay is fixed at Rs.44900 (Cell 1 of Level 7) the increase in pay comes to Rs. 8400 (Rs.44900-36500) which is more than increase of Rs.4562.5/- (12.5% of 36500) limit prescribed under this OM.

As such this increase shall be treated as substantial increase for the purpose of restriction under FR 35. His basic pay is thus to be fixed at Rs.4 1062.5 (36500+4562.5) in the Level of the post held by him before such officiating appointment i.e. Level 6. Since no such Cell equal to the amount of Rs.41062.5 is available in Level 6, his pay is to be fixed at next Cell in that Level, i.e. Rs.4 1100 (Cell 6 in Level 6) breaching the limit of 12.5%.
