As per the 7th Pay Commission Report in page 80 para 5.1.36, it has clearly stated that rationalisation has been done with utmost care to ensure minimum bunching at most levels, however if situation does arise whenever more than two stages are bunched together, one additional increment equal to 3 percent may be given for every two stages bunched, and pay fixed in the subsequent cell in the pay matrix.
According to the above statement, we have prepared new bunching table. Here we have noticed 2 bunching in Pay Band I Grade Pay 1800,
For both Basic Pay of Rs. 7210 & Rs.7430 we can see 19100 in the calculation based on 2.57 fixation as per pay matrix. In this case we have to fix the Pay as below
|Pay in the pay band||Grade pay||6th cpc Basic pay||Multiplication Factor||Multiplied Result||Rounded to nearest stage as per 7cpc fitment table||7th cpc New basic pay (Bunching adjusted)|
We also updated the bunching benefit in the 7th Pay Commission Calculator for all the grade pay. Information (in Red) will be visible only if your basic pay comes under bunching
Bunching Message in the Calculator :Since your pay gets bunched with a lower stage, you get additional increment of 3 percent for every two stages bunched, and the pay is fixed based on the subsequent cell in the pay matrix
