Pay Matrix in 7th pay Commission

Pay Matrix in 7th pay Commission has been structured in a table format and it simplified the Pay revision and pay fixation process in 7th CPC regime.

7th pay commission wanted to simplify the procedure for fixing the pay for Central Government Employees without any calculation. So the Commission had evolved a tabular column with Levels and cells and named it as Pay Matrix

How Pay Matrix Replaced Sixth CPC Pay Structure

At the time of constitution of the VI CPC there were about 35 standard pay scales in existence. Many of these pre revised scales were merged by the VI CPC to arrive at 19 grades spread across four distinct Pay bands along with 4 distinct scales including one Apex scale (fixed) for Secretary/equivalent and one scale for Cabinet Secretary/equivalent (fixed). The concept of Grade pay was intended as a fitment benefit but it also served as a level determiner within a pay band.

Following implementation of the VI CPC recommendations, the pay structure in the Civilian set up consists of four pay bands with 15 levels of grade pay, along with four standalone scales viz., the HAG scale, HAG+ scale, Apex scale (fixed) and the scale of Cabinet Secretary (fixed) as shown below in Table

Pay Matrix in 7th pay Commission

The Commission has designed the new pay matrix keeping in view the vast opportunities that have opened up outside government over the last three decades, generating greater competition for human resources and the need to attract and retain the best available talent in government services. The nomenclature being used in the new pay matrix assigns levels in place of erstwhile grade pay

Prior to VI CPC, there were Pay Scales. The VI CPC had recommended running Pay Bands with Grade Pay as status determiner. The Seventh CPC is recommending a Pay matrix with distinct Pay Levels. The Level would henceforth be the status determiner.

Index of Rationalisation IOR used to differentiate Pay bands

Since the existing pay bands cover specific groups of employees such as PB-1 for Group `C’ employees, PB-2 for Group `B’ employees and PB-3 onwards for Group `A’ employees, any promotion from one pay band to another is akin to movement from one group to the other. These are significant jumps in the career hierarchy in the Government of India. Rationalisation has been done to ensure that the quantum of jump, in financial terms, between these pay bands is reasonable.

This has been achieved by applying ‘index of rationalisation’ from PB-2 onwards on the premise that with enhancement of levels from Pay Band 1 to 2, 2 to 3 and onwards, the role, responsibility and accountability increases at each step in the hierarchy. The proposed pay structure reflects the same principle. Hence, the existing entry pay at each level corresponding to successive grades pay in each pay band, from PB-2 onwards, has been enhanced by an ‘index of rationalisation’ as shown below in Table

Pay Matrix for the Defence Forces Personnel

The Pay Matrix designed for the defence forces personnel is more compact than the civil pay matrix keeping in view the number of levels, age and retirement profile of the service personnel. For example, the term of engagement of various ranks of JCOs/ORs are fixed and of shorter duration. Service Officers on the other hand are given time scale promotion upto the rank of Colonel and Equivalent and will therefore move, from one pay level to another, in accordance with the stipulated time frame.

Pay Levels Unique to Defence Forces Personnel: Pay levels corresponding to the existing GP 3400, GP 5700, GP 6100, GP 6600, GP 7600, GP 8000, GP 8400, GP 8700, GP 8900 and GP 9000 are unique to defence forces personnel. The minimum pay corresponding to each of these pay levels takes into account the normative residency period of the various ranks of officers

Military Nursing Service (MNS) Officers Pay Matrix

In the design of the pay matrix for Military Nursing Service (MNS) Officers, the Commission has kept in view the approach followed by previous Pay Commissions as well as historical and traditional relativities between the Armed Forces Officers and Military Nursing Service Officers.

Accordingly, the following Pay matrix for Military Nursing Service (MNS) Officers is recommended by the Commission:
