Revision of grade pay in certain posts with grade pay of Rs.4200 and Rs.4600
GOVERNMENT OF ODISHA
Subject: Revision of grade pay in certain posts with grade pay of Rs.4200 and Rs.4600.
Under ORSP Rules, 2008, the revision of pay has been effected on scale to scale basis with merger of scales of pay under the ORSP Rules, 1998 in pay bands. The pay bands constitute different grade pay. In grade pay Rs.4200 pertaining to pay band P8-2, seven pay scales existing under the ORSP Rules, 1998 were merged. As a consequence of such merger, some of the promotional scales existing under the previous pay rule are now placed in pay band PB-2 with same grade pay of Rs.4200.
2. The introduction of Revised Assured Career Progression (RACP) Scheme in Finance Department Resolution No.3560, dt.06.02.2013 with effect from 01.01.2013 envisage three financial up-gradations at an interval of 10/20/30 years of the service career with stipulation in the said FD Resolution. As per the said FD Resolution, services having defined line of promotion shall avail the pay band/ grade pay of next promotional hierarchy. Due to same grade pay existing in many of the cadres having defined line of promotion, the grade pay does not change as per the scheme dt.06.02.13 thereby creating resentment among such cadres. The Service Association of various cadres have been representing for removal of such anomaly.
3. After careful consideration of the recommendation of Anomaly Committee and inexercise of powers conferred under Rule 19 of ORSP Rules, 2008, Government have been pleased to incorporate the following changes in the grade pay of posts of different Departments mentioned at Table-1 to mitigate such anomaly:
i) Enhance the promotional grade pay of the cadres from Rs.4200 to Rs.4600 where the feeder post grade pay is Rs.4200.
ii) With the feeder post grade pay of Rs.4200, where more than one promotional hierarchy is at .4200 grade pay, the promotional posts shall be merged to one cadre with the grade pay .4600. For example, the Section Officer, Level-11 and Level -1 in Heads of Department cadre shall be merged to one cadre of Section Officer with grade pay Rs.4600.
iii) The grade pay of the next promotional post now carrying the grade pay of Rs.4600 shall be enhanced to Rs.4800. There are services in which the posts carrying grade pay of Rs.4600 gets filled up partly by direct recruitment and partly by promotion from a post now carrying grade pay of Rs.4200. If the grade pay of such feeder posts is enhanced to Rs.4600 the grade pay of such promotional posts shall be enhanced to Rs.4800.
