Comments on Pay Fixation on Promotion Calculator
Mr.Ganesh Sinku says…
As per provisos below illustrations under Rule 10 (2),the Date of next increment in case of first option (fixation on 01/01/2016) would be 01/07/2017. Provisos are reproduced here:
Provided that in the case of employees whose pay in the revised pay structure has been fixed as on 1st day of January, the next increment in the Level in which the pay was so fixed as on 1st day of January, 2016 shall accrue on 1st day of July, 2016:
Provided further that the next increment after drawal of increment on 1st day of July, 2016 shall accrue on 1st day of July, 2017.
Further, in case of second option (fixation on 01/07/2016), the DNI would be on 01/01/2017 as per Rule 10(2) reproduced as under:
The increment in respect of an employee appointed or promoted or granted financial upgradation including upgradation under Modified Assured Career Progression Scheme (MACPS) during the period between the 2nd day of January and 1st day of July (both inclusive) shall be granted on 1st day of January and the increment in respect of an employee appointed or promoted or granted financial upgradation including upgradation under MACPS during the period between the 2nd day of July and 1st day of January (both inclusive) shall be granted on 1st day of July.
Please correct me, if my analogy is wrong. and if I am correct calculator need to modified.
Kindly go through the pay fixation of an officer below.
As on 1.1.16, the officer’s pay in pay band was 21650 and Gr. Pay 4800 and there was no promotion/ NFSG/ MACP after 1.1.16 till date.
Case(1)Suppose, the officer has given Option 1 w.e.f 1.1.16
(21650 + 4800)x 2.57= 67976
New pay at level 8 as on
1.1.16 -> 68000
1.7.16 -> 70000
1.7.17 -> 72100
Case(2)Suppose, the officer has given Option 2 for fixation after earning normal increment in existing pay w.e.f. 1.7.16
Pay as on 1.1.16-> 21650 + 4800
Pay as on 1.7.16-> 22450 + 4800 (after annual increment in existing scale)
For fixation w.e.f. 1.7.16, (22450 + 4800)x2.57 = 70033
New pay at level 8 as on
1.7.16 -> 72100
1.7.17 -> 74300
i.e, though the officer didn’t have any promotion/ NFSG/ MACP after 1.1.16 till date, he is getting a benefit of Rs. 2100 on 1.7.16 and Rs. 2200 on 1.7.17 if opted for fixation as on 1.7.16 (i.e, after normal increment) just because of crossing Rs. 33 above a cell in matrix while applying the multiplication factor.
Though this is a rare case this can happen.
