(a) & (b): It has been decided that in cases where a senior employee appointed to a post on promotion basis happens to actually draw pay less than an employee appointed on direct recruitment basis on the same post on or after 1.1.2006 where such a direct recruit is junior to the employee appointed on promotion, stepping up of pay of the senior at par with the junior will be allowed, if both the senior and junior belong to the same seniority list for all purposes. However, no stepping up of pay of the senior will be applicable in cases where direct recruits have been granted advance increments at the time of recruitment
