Sub: Implementation of pay fixation orders in terms of the Hon’ble CAT, Principal Bench, New Delhi’s order dated 6th March, 2017.
Reference is invited to Department of Expenditure Office Memorandum No. F No.8-11/2017-E.III(A) dated 7th February, 2018 issued in compliance of CAT New Delhi’s Judgement dated 6.03.2017.
It has been decided that consequent to implementation of 6th CPC w.e.f. 1.1.2006, Assistant Accounts officers of Central Civil Accounts Service shall be allowed minimum entry pay as applicable for direct recruits in the G.P. of Rs.4800/- i.e. Rs.18150/- (B.P.13350 + G.P. Rs.4800) from the date of their appointment on promotion. The re-fixation of pay would be of course admissible from the date of promotion in each of the individual cases. Further, they shall also be entitled to arrears arising out of pay fixation. But, no interest on payment of arrears will be admissible.
However, AAOs on such fixation will not be treated as direct recruits to the post of Assistant Accounts Officer.
These issues with the approval of the competent authority.
