Subject:- Allowing the bunching benefit to Assistant Accounts Officers as per the recommendations of 7th Central Pay commission- Regarding.
I am to directed refer to the Department of Expenditure, Implementation Cell order no. 1-6/2016-IC dated 07th Sept. 2016 on the subject cited above.
It is found that the AAOs with Grade Pay of 4800/- and drawing pre revised pay ranging from Rs.14900/- to 17,910/- had been fixed at the minimum pay of Rs. 47600/- as per 7th CPC. But as per order, the AAOs pre revised pay having pay range between Rs. 15350 to Rs. 18360 are also eligible for bunching of pay w.r.t. their juniors who were drawing lesser pay as on 31.12.2015. A comparative statement w.r.t. Shri Babu Balram Jee is enclosed for ready reference.
In absence of your clear order, different ministries are treating the matter in different ways, resulting the uncalled for discrepancies and irregularities
Under these circumstances, I request you to kindly issue a conclusive order, stating the eligibility criteria and a ready reckoner of pay fixation after bunching in terms of old pay. This will end the confusion and delay in settling the cases further.
