Explanation.– For the purpose of this sub-rule, “appropriate rate of increment in the revised pay structure” means the difference with respect to the next immediate higher Cell in the applicable Level of the Pay Matrix, from the stage at which the pay of the Sailor is fixed in the revised pay structure.
(i)In cases where a senior Sailor promoted to a higher rank before the 1st of January, 2016 draws less pay in the Pay Matrix in the revised pay structure than his junior who is promoted to the higher rank on or after the 1st of January, 2016, the pay in the Pay Matrix of the senior Sailor in the revised pay structure shall be stepped up to an amount equal to the pay in the Pay Matrix as fixed for his junior in that higher rank, and such stepping up shall be done with effect from the date of promotion of the junior Sailor, subject to fulfilment of the following conditions, namely:–
(a)both the junior and senior Sailors belong to the same group or branch and the rank to which they have been promoted are identical in the same group or branch.
(b)the existing grade pay and the revised Level in the Pay Matrix of the lower and higher ranks in which they are entitled to draw pay are identical.
(c)the senior Sailor at the time of promotion is drawing equal or more pay than the junior.
(d)the anomaly is directly as a result of the application of the provisions of this regulation or any other regulation or order regulating pay fixation on such promotion in the revised pay structure.
Provided that if the junior Sailor was drawing more pay in the existing pay structure than the senior Sailor by virtue of any advance increments granted to him, the provisions of these regulations shall not be invoked to step up the pay in the Pay Matrix of the senior Sailor.
(ii) The senior Sailor shall be entitled to the next increment on completion of his required qualifying service with effect from the date of re-fixation of pay.
