The order for which various employees forums were vigorously fighting so far with the Government has finally been issued.
The implementation of pay commission was not really fruitful for cerain cadres such as Inspector of Central Excise and Customs, Administrative Officers etc., in various departments who were in receipt of pre-revised pay scale of Rs.6500-10500.
The reason for the same is pre-revised pay scale of these cadres was merged with the lower pre-revised pay scales viz., 5000-8000 and 5500-9000 and as a result grade pay of Rs.4200/- was fixed to these cadres at par with the lower cadres.
Quoting para 2.2.21 of the pay commission report, representations were made with the Government for upgrading these cadres for the grant of grade pay of Rs.4600/- applicable to the pre-revised pay scale of Rs.7450-11500.
Accepting the demands of these cadres, it has been decided by the Government that the posts which were in the pre-revised scale of Rs.6500-10500 as on 1.1.2006 and which were granted the normal replacement pay structure of grade pay of Rs.4200 in the pay band PB-2 will now be granted grade pay of Rs.4600 in the pay band PB-2 corresponding to the pr-revised scale of Rs.7450-11500 with effect from 1.1.2006.
