Subject: Stepping up of pay of senior PAs of CSSS appointed/promoted prior to 1.1.2006 and drawing less pay than PAs of CSSS promoted after 1.1.2006.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s Office Memoranda No.7/7/08-CS.I(A) dated 22.12.2010 and 18.3.2011 vide which the orders for stepping up of pay of senior Assistants/PAs of CSS/CSSS promoted/ direct recruited with that of Assistants/PAs promoted after 1.1.2006 were issued.
2. A number of Cadre Units of CSSS have sought clarification on the admissibility of stepping up of pay of senior PAs of CSSS appointed/promoted prior to 1.1.2006 and drawing less pay than PAs of any Cadre Unit of CSSS promoted after 1.1.2006 consequent upon their fixation of pay in the revised pay structure of Grade Pay of Rs.4600 in the PB-2 on the basis of Department of Expenditure’s O.M. No.1/1/2008-IC dated 16.11.2009. The matter has been examined in this Division in consultation with Establishment(Pay) Division of this Department and it has been decided that as the Department of Personnel and Training had started making promotions to the PA grade on a centralised basis since SL year 2004 on the basis of Common Seniority List issued by this Department, the grade of PA is centralised for the purpose of removing the above anomaly.
3. Accordingly, all Cadre Units of CSSS are allowed to step up the pay of senior PAs of CSSS appointed/promoted prior to 1.1.2006 at par with that of Steno Grade ‘D’ of any Ministry/Department promoted as PAs after 1.1.2006.
