Important points to be checked by central government employees in the month of August
The month of August has already begun. At this point, when all employees are eagerly awaiting the 7th Pay Commission report, we kindly ask you to verify whether the Annual Increment given in the month of July has been calculated properly and given. Already, an article has been published on this. Some might have experienced problems in their increment and others might have faced problems due to penalty. All this is taken in to account in the month of July and its outcome will be reflected in the pay slip of August. We have attached some calculations and guidelines to help you in this regard. We request to send in your valuable thoughts and feedback about this article.
What are the points to be checked by officials remaining on punishment or on getting reinstatement offer suspension period of
On reinstatement from Suspension
If the suspension period is treated as duty – after finalization of due – case, that suspension period will be calculated on duty period and his pay will be regulated by adding that period as duty suspension.
In case it is not treated as duty – increment will be regulated only excluding suspension period.
In case of remaining of punishment
In case of reduction of pay
If the punishment is cumulative effect, no increment will be drawn during punishment period.
In case it is given without effect, that he will get annual increment in enquiry 1st July and it should be drawn on 1st July.
In case of recovery ordered, increment is eligible – because increment is not withhold or reduction has not been ordered.
In case of other punishment such as – barring of promotion – increment will be drawn in the lower post as usual.
In case of punishment on reversion to lower grade, then increment will be drawn for six months service including service in original higher post.
Reduction to a lower stage in Pay Band
Example : 1
|Pay in Pay|
|On the date of penalty||20460||4800||25260|
|Reduction||Pay in Pay|
|Grade Pay (Rs)||Total (Rs)|
|By 1 stage||19730||4800||24530|
|By 2 stages||19020||4800||23820|
|By 3 stages||18330||4800||23130|
|By 4 stages||17660||4800||22460|
|By 5 stages||17010||4800||21810|
NOTE: There may be some difference when the process is reversed i.e. when increment is allowed. This is because of rounding off of pay in Pay Band to next 10.
|Reduction||Pay in Pay|
|On the date of penalty||10140||4200||14340|
|Reduction||Pay in Pay Band (Rs)||Grade Pay (Rs)||Total|
|By 1 stage||9730||4200||13930|
|By 2 stages||9330||4200||13530|
|By 3 stages||8940**||4200**||13140**|
|By 4 stages|
|By 5 stages|
** In the above illustration, a penalty of reduction by more than two stages would take the pay in the Pay Band below the minimum of the Pay Band, such a penalty would therefore not be implementable in view of Note 2 under para 3C.
