Subject: Fixation of Pay of senior PAs in the pre-revised scale of Rs.7450-11500 with the PAs of CSSS promoted between 1.1.2006 to 31.8.2008 —clarification regarding allowing arrears — regarding.
The undersigned is directed to say that references are still being received from Ministries/Departments regarding fixation of pay of senior PAs of CSSS and payment of arrears in the revised pay structure with the PAs of CSSS who were promoted between 1.1.2006 to 31.8.2008. PAs of CSSS promoted between 1.1.2006 to 31.8.2008 were allowed arrears from the date of their promotion as they had come over to the revised pay on the date of their promotion. Seniors to such promotee PAs of CSSS, however, were subsequently allowed stepping up of their pay with reference to these officials and they were not allowed arrears on the ground that the officials with reference to whom they got their pay stepped up were also not entitled to this.
2. The issue of fixation of pay with reference to the pre-revised pay scale of Rs. 7450-11500 and payment of arrears was taken up by Establishment Division of this Department with Department of Expenditure as this amounts to compelling the senior official, who was already serving as PA prior to 1.1,2006 and opted for fixation of his pay under revised pay rules from 1.1.2006 to opt for revised pay structure from the date of stepping up with the junior.
3. It is, therefore, clarified that the senior is entitled to arrears of pay from the date he opted to come over to the Revised Pay Scales tilt the date of stepping up of pay. These will be paid on the basis of pay actually fixed as on 1.1.2006.
