7th Pay Commission: Centre clarifies on bunching of stages in revised pay structure for Central Government employees

Between two set of employees bunched within the same pay grade, the one drawing higher would be placed within the next vertical level of the same pay grade. Illustration attached below.

New Delhi, June 2: The Department of Personnel & Training clarified on how the government would tackle the bunching of stages in revised pay structure for Central Government employees. Rajesh Kumar Yadav, Under Secretary to the Government of India, issued a press release confirming that employees drawing pay under two or more stages would be provided with an additional increment for every stage. Further, in order to prevent two sets of employees of different pay grade to be bunched together, the DOPT claims that the set which is drawing higher would be placed under the next vertical slab within the the pay grade. In the press release attached below, the department has also provided an illustration to address confusion among the employees.

“I am directed to say that after revision of pay scales w.e.f 01.01.2016, the pay of a member of Service drawing pay at two or more stages in pre-revised Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale and gets 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 member of Service drawing higher pay in pre-revised structure shall be fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level as per the Proviso (a) to Rule 4 (A) of the IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016.

2.However, this Department has been receiving queries from various Ministries/Departments/State Governments for fixation of pay in respect of members of Service whose pay gets fixed at the same Cell,in the applicable Level in the new Pay Matrix. The matter was clarified vide OM No.13021/1/2016-AIS-I (Pt.2) dated the 10th October, 2016 (copy enclosed). It is once again clarified that as per Rule 4 (A)(ii) of IAS (Pay) Rule, 2016, in cases of fixation of pay of IAS officers drawing pay at two or more stages in the pre-revised Pay Band and Grade Pay gets fixed at the same Cell in the applicable Level of the Pay Matrix, one additional increment may be given for every two stages bunched so that the pay of the member of Service drawing higher pay in the pre-revised structure is fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level.

Illustration:

If two members of Service drawing pay of Rs.53000 and Rs.54590 in the GP 10000 are to be fitted in the new pay matrix, the member of Service drawing pay of Rs.53000 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs.1,36,210 and the member of Service drawing pay of Rs.54590 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs. 1,40,296. Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of level 14 in the pay of Rs. 1,44,200 but to avoid bunching the member of Services drawing pay of Rs.54590 will get fixed second cell of level 14 in the pay of Rs.1,48,500.

This issues with the approval of the competent authority.”

Yours faithfully,
S/d,
(Rajesh Kumar Yadav)
Under Secretary to the Government of India.
