Pay Fixation on 1.1.06 and on the date of increment – A comparison

We have been receiving lot of queries on sixth pay commission new pay fixation from the GConnect users. The point of concern of all is whether we will get any monitory benefit in the form of arrears or in the form of fixation of higher pay as on Sept 2008 (even at the cost of loosing some of arrears benefits), if the Pay Fixation to be done on 1.1.2006 is deferred to date of old increment that falls during the year 2006. This scenario squarely applies to Employees who have got financial upgradation under ACP scheme between 1st Jan 2006 and 31st Aug 2008.

As per Rule 5 of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008, an employee may elect to continue to draw pay in the existing scale until the date on which he earns his next or any subsequent increment in the existing scale or until he vacates his post or ceases to draw pay in that scale.

As far as the method of new pay fixation is concerned, Rule 11 of CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008, provides that where a Government Employee continues to draw his pay in the existing scale and is brought over to the revised pay structure from a date later than 1st Jan 2006, his pay in the revised pay scale shall be fixed as follows.

New Pay in the Pay Band is fixed by adding Basic Pay applicable on the later date (viz., the date on which the employee opts for new pay fixation), and Dearness Pay and Dearness Allowance applicable based on the rates applicable as on 1.1.2006. In addition, Grade pay corresponding to pre- revised will be payable from the date of New Pay fixation.

Now, let us have a comparison between the New Pay fixation on 1.1.2006 and on the date of increment.

Pay Fixation on 1.1.2006 Pay fixation on the date of increment
New Pay is fixed by multiplying the basic pay on 1.1.2006 with 1.86. New Pay is to be calculated based on the Old Basic Pay, Dearness Pay and Dearness Allowance based on the rates applicable as on 1.1.2006 received by the employee on the date of New pay Fixation. Till the New pay is fixed Old pay is continued to be paid. The effect is No arrears till the New Fixation.
Increment of 3% on every July if Revised pay is received for at least 6 months before the date of new increment. So, in the event of pay fixation on 1.1.2006, increment due on 1st July 2006 is automatically paid. Because of restriction cluase in the new increment provisions (that minimum of 6 months in the new pay scale for receipt for 3% increment on July), by default the first increment on July 2006 is not payable. For earning the susequent increments after July 2006, again the 6 months rule is to be applied.

Based on this rule frame work, We have made illustrative New Pay Fixation for 12 employees who belong to different pre-revised scales and receive pre-revised increments in different months.

This study shows that employees who receive their pre-revised increment in the month of June and before get no benefit either in the arrears or in the new pay when new pay fixation is deferred to their respective increment month. However, when the increment month is after Junel i.e from July to Dec, those employees if they defer their pay fixation to the month of their respective increment month, get small benefit in their Gross pay as on Sept-2008 (to the tune of around 7% to 10% of their pre-revised pay as on 1.1.2006), after incurring some loss in the arrears receivable.

This is because when an employee misses the revised increment during July 2006 on account of deferred fixation, he loses 3% of revised pay which is at any point of time more than the pre-revised increment the employee gets when he continues to get old pay after 1.1.2006. This is why the new Pay Fixation from Feb-06 to June-06 based on Pre-revised Basic Pay, Dearness Pay and Dearness allowance (DA) in these months is lesser than the New Pay fixed on 1.1.2006. On the other hand, when the New Pay is fixed during July-2006 to Dec-2006, the additional Dearness allowance (DA) of 5% from July 2006 added in the pre-revised pay which is taken for calculating the New Pay fixation neutralizes the July increment amount of 3% lost by the employee due to deferred Pay Fixation.

Of course the inference made out of this study is not foolproof and may vary in certain situations. We invite discussions on such situations by the users in the form of comments to this article.

The option available for the employees who have been promoted or received their ACP after 1.1.2006 is slightly different as they could opt for New Pay Fixation on the date ACP/Promotion. Want to have an idea about fixation of new pay in the case of ACP / Promotion? Check this article in Gconnect

  1. My date of joining was 20th January, 2006 in the scale of 5500-175-9000 and after implementation of 6th CPC I was fitted in 10230+4200 i.e. 14430 by our accountant. Now my department is saying my fixation was wrong it should be 9300+4200=13500 as the scales 5000-150-9000 and 5500-175-9000 were merged and my date of joining is after 1st january, 2006. In this situation what should I done. Please help me.

  2. Sir,
    I reached maximum of my scale on 1/1/2004 and i was due for stagnation increment on 1/1/2006 in the pre revised scale, which was given and pay was fixed in revised pay structure without giving increment revised pay structure. Now i find those who are promoted in july to december of the same year and reached max of their scale in july to decmber 2004 are fixed with one increment in the new pay structure. This has resulted in junior getting higher pay than seniors. In 4th july 2014 an order no F-10/2/2011-E III (A) GOVT OF INDIA, DEPT OF EXPENDITURE,MINISTRY OF FINANCE has been issued, in which one increment in revised pay structure is allowed for those who got stagnation increment prior to 1/1/2006.–it is mentioned in the order ” as per orders in vogue prior to1/1/2006″. This order of finance ministry can be interpreted as
    “As per orders in vogue prior to 1/1/2006″- then i will get stagnation increment on 1/1/2006 in pre revised scale and one increment new pay structure and i will be getting more than my juniors, who are promoted from july to december.
    ” as i should have got stagnation increment before 1/1/2006″ then i will not get increment in new pay structure, then i will be getting lower pay than my juniors who are promoted in july to december.
    Is there any clarification from finance ministry? Will i get increment in new pay structure also in addition to stagnation increment in pre revised pay scale?

  6. I joint in the service in the scale of Rs.5000-8000 on 19 May-03 and got promotion to the scale of Rs.5500-9000 on 10-08-2007. Now both the scale have been merged and granted 4200 grade pay as per the 6CPC. But, still i am drawing more salary than my other co-league who are not promoted.

My question is if i opt for revision of pay structure from 1.1.2006 itself, will my pay be first fixed in the pre-revised pay scale on account of promotion & then brought into the purview of revised pay structure or will my pay be first revised as per 6th CPC in LDC cadre & then 3% increment plus grade pay of Jr. Accountant cadre will be given on account of prmotion.

  8. amandeep singla

    I joined on 31/01/2005 in group’A’ in rs.8000-275-13500 scale. Then i got advance increment on 13/08/2005 , raising my salary to rs.8275/-. On 01-01-2006 i got annual increment , basic became rs.8550/-. The next increment was given on 01-01-2008 ( increment on 01-01-2007 was skipped). After implementation of 6th CPC, my basic was fixed on 01-01-2006 as rs.15910( equivalent to rs.8550/- as per table) +gp, then increment was given on 01-07-2006 but increment on 01-07-2007 was skipped . Is this correct method? This infact has made my salary less than my junior. Pl help.

  9. this is with regards to the circular issued dated 5th july 2010 where a chance is given to revise the option given earlier when the sixth pay scale was made applicable.

    i had given the option based on sixth pay commission

    but now i want to defer the option till 11 th of nov 2012 on which day i shall be entitled for acp II.


    • Since you have not mentioned the reference number of the circular we assume that you are talking about the circular that that extended the FR 22 option deadline for 6cpc pay fixation till 31.12.2010. So those who get promotion or macp prior to 31.12.2010 can exercise their option of fixation either on 1.1.2006 or on the date of MACP/promotion. But delayed fixation will be at the cost of arrears of pay from 1.1.2006. But you are talking about the MACP during 2012, the period which is not covered by the said circular

  23. By deferring fixation to the next date of increment some employees get the benefit of bunching. This deferred fixation should be deemed to be w.e.f. 1.1.2006 for the purposes of increment. As a one time measure , since a uniform date of increment 1.7.2006 is introduced, those availing fixation under Rule 11 be given first increment on 1.7.2006. Otherwise Rule 11 becomes redundant and should be deleted.
    Reference: Fixation of Pay under Implementation of Sixth Pay Commission.

    Subject: Anomaly of denial of annual increment in July 2006 in cases of pay fixation where an employee opts to get the fixation postponed (other than promotions) under Rule 5 read with Rule 11 to the next date of increment between February and June 2006.
    There is a serious anomaly when Rule 4 is read with Rule 11 regarding fixation of pay in the revised pay structure subsequent to the first day of January 2006 is read along with clarification on CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 in cases of exercise of option of postponing fixation (other than promotions).

    Suppose the increment of Mr. X is due on 01.01.2006( in most of the organizations all employees joining on any date of the month are given the 1st of the month as the next date of increment) . By virtue of the clarification firstly he will get an increment in the pre-revised scale on 01.01.2006 and then will be fixed in the new pay band after getting the benefit of bunching. Subsequently by virtue of the of the clarification he will also get an increment of 3% in the new pay band in July 2006.
    Suppose increment of Mr. Y is due in the month of March/April, 2006. In case other then promotion, he exercises his option by virtue of Rule 11 and to avail the benefit of bunching and gets his fixations postponed to March/April 2006. In March/April 2006 after getting his increment in pre-revised pay scale he is fixed in the new pay band. But by virtue of rules read with the clarifications Mr. Y is denied increment in the revised pay band in the month of July 2006 and will be eligible for the increment next year in July 2007 and not in the year 2006.
    The anomaly is that Mr. X gets two benefits, one in January in the pre-revised scale and gets the bunching benefit and second of an increment, in July 2006, in the revised pay band. On the contrary Mr. Y gets only one benefit in March/April 2006 only in the pre-revised scale and no benefit of any increment in the new pay band for the whole year of 2006. Secondly Mr. Y will get the so called annual increment in next year July 2007 after a gap of 17/16/15 months i.e. after much more than a year and not at all in the revised pay band in the year 2006.
    To remove this anomaly it is suggested all those who exercise their option under Rule 4 read with Rule 11 to postpone their fixation upto the date of the month (prior to July 2006) when their increment is due under the unrevised pay scale so as to avail the benefit of bunching, should be treated or deemed to be at par with those whose increment was due in January and be also allowed an increment in the new pay band in July 2006 as is given to those whose increment falls on 01.01.2006. Otherwise for no fault of theirs whose increment falls in a month other than January but before July 2006 would suffer doubly as they would have to forego their arrears upto the date of exercise of their option and secondly would also be denied the benefit of annual increment in July 2006 in the new pay band.
    The anomaly is arising because for the first time to bring uniformity, in future, in the annual increments, 1st July is being introduced as the date of annual increment. Hence as a one time measure for the first annual increment in 2006 the requirement of minimum six months be relaxed for all those whose otherwise increment is due before July so that one can meaningfully exercise the option under Rule 4 read with Rule 11. Otherwise, the option to postpone fixation to the date of next increment becomes meaningless, redundant and a loosing proposition in all the circumstances.
    Such an anomaly was never experienced in the earlier pay revisions of 1986 and 1996 because at that time the date of increment of all the employees respectively remained unchanged. But now because of the introduction of July as a uniform date of annual increment for all the employees, this is to the disadvantage of the employees whose otherwise date of increment is February to June as compared to those with 01.01.2006 as the date of increment who will get their next increment just on completion of six months and that too after getting one increment in January in the pre-revised scale resulting in enjoyment of the bunching benefit. On the contrary others after exercising options under Rule 4 read with Rule 11 will suffer and get their first increment after a gap of 17/16/15 months respectively. Patently, this is discrimination.
    If the anomaly is not removed then the Rule 4 read with Rule 11 allowing employees to postpone their fixation (in cases other than promotions) to the next date of their increment to avail the benefit of bunching will patently become redundant despite the employee forgoing/relinquishing his arrears from 01.01.2006 upto the next date of increment-cum- fixation.
    In view of the aforesaid a clarification be issued, keeping in view the anomaly which has arisen out of the first time introduction of uniform date of annual increment in July, to remove the disadvantage being caused against the employees exercising option to postpone fixation that as a one time measure such employees who get their pay fixed after 01.01.2006 (foregoing their arrears upto the date of fixation) should also be entitled to their first annual increment on 01.07.2006.
    And the right to exercise the option be extended and be allowed upto three months after the clarification on the above is issued by the Government of India.
    Palpably severe injustice is being caused to those employees whose date of increment falls between February 2006 and before July 2006 and can get the benefit of bunching with an added increment in the pre-revised scale. There is a clear sufferance of loss of one increment either in the unrevised pay scale (if fixation is accepted w.e.f. 01.01.2006) or in the revised pay band (if fixation is postponed to the next date of the increment but before 01.07.2006). If such employees get their pay fixed on 01.01.2006 then after February 2005 they will get their annual increment on 01.07.2006 i.e. after a gap of 17 months counted from the last increment (February 2005 in the pre-revised pay scale). And if they get their fixation postponed under Rule 4 read with Rule 11, to their next date of increment i.e. February/March/April 2006 then they will get their next increment on 01.07.2007 again after a gap of 17 months. On the contrary, those employees whose date of increment falls between July 2005 and January 2006 they will get their increment just within a gap of 6 months to 12 months range after their last increment in the pre-revised pay scale.
    Between 01.07.2005 and 01.07.2006, those employees whose date of increment falls between July and January in the unrevised pay scale will get 3 increments by 01.07.2007 (one in the unrevised pay scale, second on 01.07.2006 and third on 01.07.2007). On the other hand those employees whose date of annual increment falls between February and before July will not get the benefit of increment in the unrevised pay scale and will only get a belated postponed one increment in the revised pay band on 01.07.2006. And further if, the later category of employees exercise the option to get their fixation postponed to a date subsequent to 01.01.2006 then they will not get any increment on 01.07.2006 but will get the increment on 01.07.2007 only.
    In view of the first time introduction of the uniform date of annual increment, it is suggested that after the fixation of salary either on 01.01.2006 or on any subsequent date on account of exercise of option under Rule 4 read with Rule 11 after they have availed of their increment in the unrevised pay scale to get the benefit of bunching, but before 01.07.2006 all employees should be given their first increment in the revised pay band on 01.07.2006 irrespective of the date of fixation. Once the uniformity is achieved in the very first year then in future the anomaly will not arise.
    Or in the alternative again as a one time measure in all such cases where the increment was due after January but before 01.07.2006 in the unrevised pay scale then they be given their pre-revised increment (actually or notionally) by pre-poning (advancing) the same to 01.01.2006 and then their pay be fixed accordingly in the revised pay scale on 01.01.2006 and their first increment be also given on 01.07.2006. If the benefit of increment in the pre-revised scale is not given to those whose date of increment falls between February and June 2006 then it will lead to another anomaly e.g., then such employees will get their annual increment on 01.07.2006 which will be after a gap of 17/16/15/14 months and not 12 months. Fixation of pay rules need to be clarified positively and liberally in favour of the employees and not against the interest of the employees. In all earlier pay revisions due increment has never been denied nor postponed to any future date with recurring financial loss for all times to come.

  24. sir, I have joined as constable in RPF department on 07/06/06 in scale RS 3050-75-4590. and my basic pay on 07/06/06 is RS 3050/- Kindly tell me my scale on 07/06/06 under 6 pc including GP.

  25. Yes, I retired from a centrally funded institute on 30 June, 2007 but the 6 CPC has given effect from 1.1.2006. My increment comes on 1 June every year. If I get fixation on 1.1.2006 based on 6CPC my first increment would come on 1 July, 2006 and thereafter on 1 July, 2007 and so on. So from 1 June 2006 to 30 June, 2007 I was in the institute which meant that I already served the institute and completed 12 months during my stay in the institue from 1 June 2006 to 30 June 2007. But I was not given any more increment though there is a provision in 6CPC that, if any employee serves for 6 moths or so, he/she can get one more increment as per 6CPC. Hence, it is very pathetic to think of the judgement given by 6CPC that the increment would be given only on 1 July every year. That means, I lost an increment for a single day. Furthermore, the pension, after commuting 40% of the pension amount based on fixation in the new scale, was a good amount . As the amount of commutation opted for 40% of my pension in the pre-revised scale,fixation in the new scale based on 6CPC showed my basic along with grade pay became higher. So the amount of commutation I opted for, earlier, remained the same and I started getting higher amount of pension thereafter. But after giving the declaration of additional amount of commutation based on 40% provision ( increased amount of basic and grade pay that has gone hifger as per 6 CPC)I started getting pension lower than the earlier i.e. within the period prior to opting for addional commutation. I don’t find any logic or justification of imposing such restrictions on the pensioners because pensioners like me who struggle for their existence and to survive well for the next. Thay is why , may I, tenderly hope and earnestly request the Govt. of India to give proper justice to them like me. With regards,

  26. dear sir. being a nurse i am very much upset over the issue of pay fixaton.we are granted upgradation with a pay band of 4600 but still who have joined before 2006 are drawing less than who have joined after 2006. just few days back MOF has issued a memo stating the step up for seniors but only upto the basic of juniors[17140].this ia a total injustice against nurses. even a nurse ,joined in 1996 would get the same salary to those of 2006. this means seniors has wasted their 11 years in the service without a single panny. even the 5th pay commission had given a increment for evry two years of service in case of upgradation and step up. we should stand together to strongly oppose this and this is our right. for personal suggetions …9868586505

    By Govt’s decision clarified vide OM No.38/37/08-P&PW(A)part II dated October 3, 2008, to fix revised pension of post-2006 pensioners superannuated between 1.1.2006 and 2.9.2008 on the average emoluments of last ten months pay, pensioners specially those superannuated in early 2006 are the much losers even in comparison with those of pre-2006 pensioners. In my case, superannuated on 31st March2006, my pension on average emoluments of last 10 months comes to be fixed at Rs. 8810. Had I retired pre-2006 i.e. on 31-12-2005 my pension could have been fixed at Rs.10329 (current full pension Rs. 6855). Has it been 50% of the last drawn the revised fixed pay of Rs.22100 it comes to Rs.11050. So I am loser in comparison to both i.e. pre-2006 and those who superannuated after 2/9/2008. It is expected that pensioners of post-2006 should have been benefited over those of pre-2006 but in my case it is just opposite. Sir, why it is so? If not getting much it should not be less than of pre-2006 also.
