National Anomaly Committee – Agenda item No.5(v) – ‘Date of Next Increment’
The above said point regarding the anomaly relating to Rule 9 of the CCS (RP) Rules 2008, some of our readers were confused pertaining a news which came recently from our staff side members of National Anomaly Committee. The news was that, the decision of the recently concluded in fourth National Anomaly Committee (NAC Meeting) regarding the anomaly in annual increment arising due to the implementation of 6th Central Pay Commission Recommendations.
The decision is that before the implementation of 6th CPC, those employees whose yearly increment falls between February to June are eligible to get one increment in the pre-revised scale from 1.1.2006 as one time measure. In other words, “Annual increment falls between 1st February 2006 and 1stJune 2006, first increment will be granted on January 2006 on V CPC rates and the second will be granted on July 2006 on VI CPC rates as one time measure”.
The only particular group of employees are eligible to get the increment as one time measure, everyone should know that this decision do not have any effect on other employees.
“Qualifying period for earning an increment is 6 months on 1st July”.
As per Rule 10 of CCS(RP) Rules, 2008 there will be one uniform date of annual increment, viz. 1st July of every year. Government servants completing 6 months and above in the revised pay structure as on 1st of July will be eligible to be granted the increment. Accordingly, all Government servants who earned their last increment between 02.01.2005 and 01.01.2006 would get their next increment on 01.07.2006.
For those employees whose date of next increment falls on 01.01.2006, the instructions already provide for granting an increment in the pre-revised pay scale as on 01.01.2006 and then fixing their pay in the revised pay scales. Such Government servants would also get their next increment on 01.07.2006.
Due to implementation of the above said rule, concerning the anomaly has been discussed in every meeting of National Anomaly Committee and finally a decision was taken. Now, we are expecting a Government order regarding the issue through Dopt, which may help to calculate the pay fixation and arrears exactly.
