9.6         INCREMENTS

9.6.1         DATE OF INCREMENT

 

The increment specified in the various scales of pay applicable to workmen staff shall accrue on an annual basis and shall be given effect (as from 8th September 1983) on the first day of the month in which it falls due. However, where for any reason whatsoever, the date of the increment has to be postponed under the service conditions, such postponements will be notionally made in the actual date on which the increment accrues. If on such postponement, either in the first instance or on a cumulative basis, such date of accrual of increment shifts to any subsequent calendar month, the increment will be released on the first day of that subsequent month. Eligible employees are to be granted annual increment on the anniversary date of their appointment in the Banks service except in the following cases, where the date of annual increment is to be computed otherwise.

 

a)         Those employees who were in service of the Bank as on 1.1.1970 and whose date of annual increment was shifted to 1st August each year because of the fixation formula introduced on account of revision of pay scales then, will be granted increments on 1st August each year, except in cases where it is provided otherwise.

 

b)         Permanent part-time employees appointed on or before 1.1.1967 would be granted increment proportionate to their salary scales, as on 1st January each year

 

c)         In the case of employees who have been sanctioned extraordinary leave on loss of pay, the period not counting as service for pension and increment, the annual increment will be due on the date to which it is shifted.

 

d)         In case of employees, whose date of annual increment has been enhanced due to temporary service rendered by them in the Bank, prior to their permanent absorption in service, the increment will become due on the appropriate date.

 

e)         In the case of members of the clerical cadre staff promoted from the subordinate cadre, the increment will become payable as per the fitment formula applicable to them.

 

f)          Employees under suspension

 

In the case of employees under suspension the annual increments, which fall due during the period of suspension, should henceforth be reckoned for calculation of subsistence allowance in respect of workmen staff, in accordance with the provisions of Awards/Bipartite settlements.

 

Further benefit of salary revision is to be extended to those workmen employees who were placed under suspension before such revision became effective.

 

The instructions to pay the revised subsistence allowance come into effect:

 

i)                    From the date of such revision, if it is on account of salary revision.

 

ii)                   From 11th June 1997, if it is on account of annual increments notionally reckoned for calculation of subsistence allowance.

 

The matter for payment of higher subsistence allowance to employees under suspension should be referred to respective disciplinary authority.

(SETTLEMENT DTD.08.09.1983)

 

9.6.2         SANCTIONING AUTHORITY

 

The Branch Manager shall sanction the annual increments of members of award staff at a branch. The Assistant General Manager/ Chief Manager (Administration) will sanction the increments due to employees at the Local Head Office/Zonal Office. All cases where the increment of an employee is sought to be delayed/withheld or cancelled should be referred to the controlling authority for prior approval. The increments, as and when given effect to, should be noted in the service sheet of the concerned employees.

 

9.6.3         PROCEDURE FOR SANCTION

 

The exercise of sanctioning increment to employees shall be done annually for the period 1st April to 31st March, every year. The increment sanctioned for the year should be detailed on form shown in Annexure-9.4. One copy of this statement should be forwarded to the Controlling Authority for making necessary entries in the service sheets and for post audit purposes. The increments, as and when given effect to, should be noted in the service sheets of the employees concerned.

 

In the case of an employee transferred to the Branch subsequent to 31st march, the increment sanctioned to him should be ascertained from the Branch from where he is transferred and revised basic pay should be duly given effect to at the appropriate time. For this purpose, the Branch transferring the employee should invariably mention the day and amount of the increment in the Last Pay Certificate for the information of the Branch to which the employee transferred.

 

9.7         ADDITIONAL INCREMENTS FOR GRADUATION/CAIIB

 

9.7.1         The members of the clerical and cash department staff will be entitled to additional increments in the running scale of pay as under:

iii)         Part II of CAIIB/CAIB examination or JAIIB                                          2 increments

 

An employee passing CAIIB/JAIIB examination during suspension will not be entitled for extra increments.

 

9.7.2        With effect from 02.06.2005, non-subordinate employees who acquire graduation/ post-graduation qualification from Universities/ Open Universities which are recognized by the University Grants Commission will be considered as having acquired graduate qualification and would be eligible for being granted the two additional increments for graduation or graduation pay, as the case may be, as provided hereinabove subject to the following conditions:

i)                    Employees who registered under the Graduation/ Post Graduation courses of Open University have either passed the foundation course or attended the Bachelors Preparatory Programme; and

ii)                   They pursue the same course and take the same examination as the formal stream students.

 

(EIGHTH BIPARTITE SETTLEMENT)

 

Although this provision takes effect from the date of settlement, i.e. 02.06.2005, it has been agreed that cases of all non-subordinate employees who have acquired graduation/post graduation qualification from Universities/Open Universities recognized by the University Grants Commission prior to the date of Settlement may also be considered for release of increment for graduation or graduation pay, subject to conditions as at 9.7.2 (i) and (ii).

 

(C.C. LETTER NUMBER CDO:IR: SPL: 200 DATED 22.08.2005)

 

Note:

Ex-servicemen who are graduates may be given increments for graduation irrespective of the fact whether they had passed graduation before joining the service of the Bank, or afterwards. However, if an ex-serviceman had been given some benefit for graduation, which was reflected in the pay drawn by him, while in the armed services, the fitment in the Banks scale has to be done as per IBA guidelines, after withdrawing such additional benefits, and thereafter giving two increments for graduation.

 

Ex-servicemen, who are matriculates but deemed as graduates (for the purpose of re-employment in the Bank in clerical cadre) on the basis of 15 years service in the armed forces, are not entitled to additional increments unless they acquire graduation qualification from a recognized university.

 

If an employee is a post-graduate but not a graduate, he shall not get the graduation increments or graduation Pay.

 

However, where graduation increments/Pay have been granted after 1.11.1987 to those post-graduate employees (clerical cadre who have not done graduation, the same will be discontinued. However, with a view to avoiding hardships, no recoveries may be made.

 

Employees recruited between 10.4.89 and 30.6.90 who have drawn graduation Pay upto 30.6.90 will be eligible for graduation increments with effect from 1st July 1990. From 1st July 1990 clause 10 of the Fifth Bipartite Settlement had been deleted. Accordingly, employees recruited on or after 1st July 1990 or non-graduates who have acquired such qualifications are eligible for grant of two increments as per the provisions existing prior to Fifth Bipartite Settlement.

(SETTLEMENT DTD.31.3.1967)

 

9.8         ELIGIBLE QUALIFICATIONS

 

            The degrees/diplomas awarded by the Universities in India which are incorporated by an Act of the Central or State Legislature in India and other educational institutions established by an Act of Parliament or declared as universities under Section 3 of the University Grants Commission Act, 1956, are deemed to be recognized automatically.

 

Similarly, any certificate or diploma awarded by the Boards of Secondary and Intermediate Education, duly set up and recognized by the Central or the State Government may be taken as recognized. The AMIE examination (Section A & B) conducted by the Institution of Engineers (India) is equivalent to the Bachelors Degree examination for this purpose. Accordingly staff members in the clerical cadre passing this examination are entitled to two increments provided they have not already received such benefit for any other bachelor degree. Any doubts as to whether a university is or is not incorporated by an Act of Legislature or the degree or diploma to which a specified degree or diploma should be regarded as equivalent, may be referred to HR Department at Local Head Office for clarification.

 

9.9         SANCTIONING AUTHORITY FOR ADDITIONAL INCREMENTS FOR GRADUATION/CAIIB

 

Additional increments due to employees who are graduates or possessing equivalent qualifications or pass in Part I/II of JAIIB/CAIIB examinations (including educational allowance as per the provisions of the Fourth Bipartite Settlement) may be sanctioned by the Branch Manager/Assistant General Manager/Chief Manager (Office Administration), as the case may be. The increments may be given effect to from the dates of publication of the results or from the dates of the letters intimating the results to the employees, as the case may be. Such additional increments (including stagnation increments) sanctioned should be reported to the controlling authority along with the monthly pay sheet in the Performa attached in Annexure 9.5 for control. The original documents like degree/diploma certificates, or original letters of intimation to the employees as in the case of JAIIB/CAIIB examination will have to be perused by the sanctioning authority.

 

9.10       SPECIAL PAY FOR GRADUATION AND PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATION AFTER REACHING MAXIMUM OF SCALE OF PAY

 

In modification of the provisions contained in Annexure-2 to the Settlement dated 11th May 2000, the rates of Special Pay for Graduation and Professional Qualification, payable to clerical cadre staff stand revised, as under, with effect from the 1st November 2002.

9.11       GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADDITIONAL INCREMENTS ON ACCOUNT OF GRADUATION/PASSING CAIIB/JAIIB

 

9.11.1       ln the case of a new graduate entrant into the Bank, his basic pay can be straight away fixed at the appropriate stage by the Branch Manager, of course, indicating at the same time, in the appointment letter that the higher basic pay carried benefit of two increments on account of graduation.

 

9.11.2       In the case of an employee who graduates himself while in service the increments may be sanctioned by the Branch Manager on par with the procedure in vogue for sanction of the increments, for passing the CAIIB/JAIIB examination, and such increments shall be sanctioned from the date of declaration of the results.

 

9.11.3       Increment(s) for passing CAllB/JAIIB examination should not be released to an employee during the period of suspension, where such qualification has been acquired during the period of suspension.

 

9.11.4       Members of subordinate staff who are permitted to appear at the examination of Indian Institute of Banking & Finance are not eligible for payment of additional increments for passing the examination.

 

9.11.5       No increments/cash incentive/weightage for promotion etc. should be given to the employees on their producing Result Advices in support of their having completed the Institutes examination(s)

 

9.11.6       Increment/cash incentive/weightage for promotion should be given to the employees only on production of Completion Memorandum issued by the Institute.

 

9.11.7       In case where a candidate has adopted malpractices, the declaration of result should be considered to be only provisional subject to being cancelled in the event of adoption of malpractices being established.

 

9.11.8       For the sake of clarity and to distinguish it from graduation allowance, the increments/educational allowance paid to clerical staff for passing part I of CAIIB/JAIIB or both parts of the associate examination shall be called Professional Qualification Increments/Allowance, as the case may be.

 

9.11.9       If an employee graduates (without passing matriculation) from Recognized/accredited University, he shall be entitled to graduation increments.

 

9.11.10    Employees passing recognized examination in Hindi conducted by non-governmental Institutions/Organizations other than statutory Universities are not entitled to increments admissible on graduation even if the standard of Hindi is recognized as equivalent to standard of graduation.

 

9.12       POSTPONEMENT OF INCREMENT EXTRAORDINARY LEAVE ON LOSS OF PAY

 

Extraordinary leave sanctioned on loss of pay, the period not counting as service for purpose of increments, will have the effect of postponing all the future increments also.

 

However, where the sanctioning authority is satisfied that the leave was taken on account of illness or for any other cause beyond the employees control, the period of extra ordinary leave may be counted for increments with the approval of the competent authority.

 

In the case of employees who are office bearers of registered trade unions, increment may be deferred only to the extent that extraordinary leave exceeds two months in any incremental year.

 

(PA: CIR: 37 DTD.29.6.1986)

 

9.13          STAGNATION INCREMENTS

 

9.13.1       Both clerical and subordinate staff (including permanent part-time employees on scale wages) shall be eligible for six stagnation increments w.e.f. 1st November 2002 at the rate and frequency as stated herein under:

 

The clerical and subordinate staff (including permanent part-time employees on scale wages) on reaching the maximum in their respective scales of pay, shall draw six stagnation increments at the rate of Rs.560/- and Rs.270/- each due under the settlement, and at frequencies of 3 years and 2 years respectively, from the dates of reaching the maximum of their scales as aforesaid. Provided that a clerical / subordinate staff (including permanent part-time employees on scale wages) already in receipt of five stagnation increments shall be eligible for the sixth stagnation increment on 1st November 2002 or three / two years respectively after receiving the fifth stagnation increment, whichever is later. In respect of employees who had received their fifth stagnation increment on and from 1st November 1999, the sixth stagnation increment shall be released on and from 1st November 2002.

9.13.2       Permanent part-time employees on scale wages are eligible to draw stagnation increments pro rata to the scale in which they are, at frequencies of two years from the date of reaching the maximum of the scale.

9.13.3       A member of clerical/subordinate staff who is already in receipt of four stagnation increments, shall be eligible for the fifth stagnation increment on 1st November, 1999 or after 3/2 years as the case may be of receiving the 4th stagnation increment whichever date is later. In respect of employees who had received their fourth stagnation increment on or after 1st November 1996 but before 1st November 1997, the fifth stagnation increment shall be released on and from 1st November 1999.

 

An employee who has received the fourth stagnation increment in terms of the provisions of the Sixth Bipartite Settlement on or after 1.11.1997 but on or before the date of settlement dated 27.3.2000 would have the date of release of this increment notionally preponed and the fifth stagnation increment released to him accordingly. There shall, however, be no payment of any arrears of pay and allowances on allotment of such preponement.

 

9.13.4       In terms of the Sixth Bipartite Settlement, the provisions with regard to grant of stagnation increments have been revised as under:

 

a)         Refusal to accept promotion at any stage or seeking reversion within one year of promotion, if any permissible under Banks rules will not disentitle an employee from getting stagnation increments.

 

b)         An employee shall not be eligible for stagnation increment(s), if he after accepting promotion, seeks, and is granted, reversion after one year from the date of promotion.

 

            Clarifications:

 

i)          An officer reverted to clerical cadre shall draw stagnation increment, unless the reversion is at his request.

 

ii)         If any employee refuses to accept an allowance carrying post or a higher allowance carrying post, he may still be allowed to earn stagnation increments.

 

iii)         Refusal to appear for promotional examination does not deprive a workman employee from earning stagnation increments. The stagnation increment once released to the employee need not be withdrawn even if he refuses the offer of promotion made to him thereafter.

 

iv)        Where Professional Qualification Pay and Stagnation increments fall due on the same date, both may be released simultaneously on the due date.

 

v)         If pay of an employee who after reaching maximum of the scale was stages lower than the maximum should not be counted for the purpose of determining the 3 year period for eligibility.

 

iv)        Where extraordinary leave is granted on loss of pay and it is not counted for increments, such period should not be counted as service for the purpose of stagnation increment.

 

Stagnation increments may be taken into account for the purpose of fitment on promotion to higher cadre.

Accordingly, an ex-serviceman will be notionally fitted at the minimum of scale of pay applicable in the Banks service or at that level where new basic pay plus dearness allowance will be equal to or just above the pay plus dearness allowance last drawn by him in the armed forces less the amount of gross pension of Rs. 50/- for those appointed from 10.6.1964 to 18.7.1978 and Rs. 125/- for those appointed from 19.7.1978 onwards.

An ex-serviceman who has joined the Bank prior to 1.9.1978 can exercise fresh option to come over to the post 1.9.1978 pay fixation formula as if he was fresh entrant in the Banks service. Arrears on account of refixation of pay will, however be admissible to such optee from 1.9.1978.

 

It is clarified that the term fresh entrant relates only to the pay fixation of an ex-serviceman and will not affect the seniority or counting of service for any other purpose.

 

b)         Recruitment during the period 1.9.1978 to 24.1.1983

 

Pay fixation of an ex-serviceman who has joined the Banks service during the period 1.9.1978 to 24.1.1983 will be made on the basis of protection of pay (instead of Pay + DA) drawn by him prior to retirement. Accordingly, an ex-serviceman will be notionally fitted at the minimum of the scale of pay applicable in the Banks service or at the level where new basic pay will be equal to or just above the basic pay drawn by him in the armed forces less amount of gross pension including pension equivalent of gratuity in excess of Rs. 125/-.

 

After the fitment as above, his revised basic pay will be given effect to only from 1.4.1980.

 

In addition to the pay so fixed, pension and other retirement benefits may be allowed to be drawn subject to the limitation that re-employment pay plus pension and pension equivalent of other retirement benefits does not exceed last pay drawn or Rs. 3000/-, whichever is less.

 

c)         Recruitment during the period 25.1.1983 to 30.6.1983

 

Pay fixation of an ex-serviceman who has joined the Banks service during the period 25.1.1983 to 30.6.1983 will be made on the basis of protection of pay (instead of pay + DA) drawn by him prior to retirement. An ex-serviceman will be notionally fitted at the minimum of the scale of pay applicable in the Banks service or at the level where new basic pay will be equal to or just above the pay drawn by him in the armed forces. Accordingly, while fixing his pay on re-employment as an ex-serviceman, who retires from the armed forces before attaining the age of 55, the entire pension would be ignored.

 

Note:   An ex-serviceman who is already in re-employment may exercise his option for refixation of pay on the above basis. If he so opts, his terms would be determined afresh as if he has been re-employed for the first time from 25.1.1983.

 

In addition to the pay so fixed, pension and other retirement benefits may be allowed to be drawn subject to the limitation that re-employment pay plus pension and pension equivalent of other retirement benefits does not exceed last pay drawn or Rs. 3000/-, whichever is less.

 

d)         Recruitment during the period 1.7.1983 to 31.12.1985

 

Pay fixation of an ex-serviceman who has joined the Banks service during the period 1.7.1983 to 31.12.1985 would be through the protection of pay  + DA drawn by him at the time of his release from armed forces. The figure of pay plus DA admissible in the Bank will be fixed with reference to this protection and relevant stage of the basic pay in the scale will be determined after deducting DA admissible in the Bank from the figure protected.

 

Pay fixation of an ex-serviceman re-employed in the Bank during the period 1.7.1983 to 31.12.1985 be done in accordance with the above provisions with effect from 1.7.1983 and arrears on account of refixation of pay, if any, will be payable only form 10.6.1986. The excess amount, if any paid to an ex-serviceman who joined between 1.7.1983 and 10.6.1986 on account of the retrospective effect being given to the IVth Bipartite Settlement may be recovered by the Bank, as it was as unintended benefit.

 

However, as a special case, the excess amount already paid for the period 1.7.1983 to 17.9.1984 may not be recovered.

 

In addition to the pay so fixed, pension and other retirement benefits may be allowed to be drawn subject to the limitation that re-employment pay plus pension and pension equivalent of other retirement benefits does not exceed last pay drawn or Rs. 3000/- whichever is less.

 

As per guidelines issued by IBA on instructions received from Government of India it was later that the special allowances for armed guards/watchmen should also be taken into account while protecting the last pay drawn by them. In short, the B.P. + D.A. Special Allowance should not be less than the B.P. + D.A. last drawn by the ex-serviceman at the time of his retirement/discharge from the armed forces.

 

Armed guards initially appointed as "Watchmen" till such time their names are entered in the gun license, as retainers are eligible for a special allowance of Rs.75/- only. However, subsequently when the formalities are completed and they are designated as Armed Guard, a special allowance of Rs. 125/- is required to be paid.  As a corresponding reduction in the Basic Pay is not feasible, these employees continue to draw Rs. 50/- extra than those who would have been directly inducted as Armed Guard as illustrated below:

 

            Pay Fixation of Armed Guards initially appointed as watchman

 

            B.P. + D.A. + Rs.75/

            (Special Allowance)    =          B.P. + D.A.  Last drawn at the time of retirement from service.

 

On re-designation they are paid Rs. 125/- as special allowance resulting in an additional payment of Rs. 50/- Pay fixation of Armed Guards appointed directly

 

            B.P. + D.A. + Rs.125/-   =          B.P. + D.A.  Last drawn at the time of retirement from service.

 

e)         Recruitment during the period 1.1.1986 to 31.10.1987

 

Pay fixation of an ex-serviceman who has joined the Banks service during the period 1.1.1986 to 31.10.1987 would be through protection of pay  + DA drawn by him at the time of his release from armed forces. The figure of pay plus DA admissible in the Bank will be fixed with reference to this protection and relevant stage of the basic pay in the scale will be determined after deducting DA admissible in the Bank from the figure protected.

 

In addition to the pay so fixed as mentioned above from 1.1.1986, pension and other retirement benefits may be allowed to be drawn subject to the limitation that re-employment pay plus pension and pension equivalent of other retirement benefits does not exceed last pay drawn or Rs. 8000/- whichever is less.

 

f)          Pay fixation of recruitees on or after 1.11.1987           

 

Pay fixation of an ex-serviceman who joined the Banks service on or after 1.11.1987 would be through protection of basic pay plus Dearness Allowance drawn by him at the time of release from armed forces.

 

The figure of basic pay plus DA admissible in the Bank will be fixed with reference to this protection and relevant stage of the basic pay in the scale will be determined after deducting DA admissible in the Bank from the figure protected. If the maximum basic pay in the Bank is less than the last pay drawn before retirement by the ex-servicemen he should be fitted at the maximum basic pay only and the stagnation increments will not be taken into account for fixation purposes.

 

Over payments, if any, on account of pay fixation of an ex-serviceman who joined between 1.11.1987 and 10.4.1989 should be recovered from his pay. Similarly, if re-fixation of pay in the revised pay scales in the Bank leads to fixation at a higher stage the arrears may be paid to an ex-serviceman.

 

In addition to the pay fixed as mentioned above from 1.1.1986 pension and other retirement benefits may be allowed to be drawn subject to the limitation that the re-employment pay plus pension and pension equivalent of other retirement benefits does not exceed last pay drawn or Rs.8000/- which ever is less.

           

From 1st June 1988 while fixing the initial pay of re-employed pensioners, the pension equivalent of gratuity may not be deducted from the pay so fixed.

           

Ex-servicemen on re-employment in Bank also draw D.A. on their pay; Payment of relief on pension (which is in the nature of dearness allowance on pension) would result in double payments of dearness allowance. Therefore, consequent on their re-employment in Bank all ex-servicemen will not draw relief on pension as sanctioned by the Government from time to time.

           

g)         Refixation of pay of ex-servicemen re-employed in banks on or after 1.11.1992

The "Pay" of ex-servicemen re-employed in banks service on or after 1.11.1987 but before 14.2.1995 was fixed with reference to the pay scale of Fifth Bipartite Settlement so as to protect the pay plus dearness allowance drawn by them at the time of release from armed forces. Upon implementation of the Sixth Bipartite Settlement with effect from 1.11.1992, the pay of such ex-servicemen who joined the Banks service after 1.11.1992 but before implementation of the wage revision will have to be refixed with reference to the new scale of pay.

           

Therefore, in cases of all ex-servicemen who have joined the bank on or after 1.11.1992, the pay fixation has to be done as per the Sixth Bipartite Settlement. Accordingly, the pay of ex-servicemen has to be refixed under the Sixth Bipartite Settlement.

           

In this connection, overpayments, if any, on account of pay fixation of an ex-servicemen who joined between 1,11.1992 and 14.2.1995 should be recovered and if re-fixation of pay in the revised pay scales in the Bank leads to fixation at a higher stage the arrears may be paid to an ex-serviceman.

           

9.16.2       Reckoning Of Special Allowance Attached To The Post To Which Ex-servicemen Are Appointed In Bank (Vide IBA Letter Of 16.03.1992)

           

In addition to the basic pay plus dearness allowance, the special allowance in the Bank attached to the post to which the ex-serviceman is appointed, is also taken into account while protecting the last basic pay and dearness allowance drawn at the time of retirement/discharge from the armed forces because the special allowance is also in the nature of basic pay attracting, among others, dearness relief and/or superannuation benefits. The protection as above (i.e. with special allowance component) would also be relevant if an ex-serviceman is recruited in the Bank as stenographer or at some other allowance carrying position in clerical/subordinate grades.

 

(CDO: PM: 1408:SPL: 5 DTD.4.4.2001)

 

9.16.3       The Special pay granted w.e.f. 1.7.1996 in terms of Bipartite Settlement dated the 14.2.96, which has been treated as basic pay for all purposes, should also be reckoned for re-fixation of pay of ex-servicemen re-employed in the Bank on or after 1.7.1996

 

9.16.4       The ex-servicemen re-employed in public sector banks are not exempted from payment of professional tax levied by the State Government.

 

9.17       FITMENT OF PAY IN CLERICAL CADRE ON PROMOTION FROM SUBORDINATE CADRE 

 

9.17.1       In terms of the fitment formula consequent on wage revision under Sixth Bipartite Settlement, on promotion, a member of the subordinate staff is given fitment in the clerical scale of pay on stage to stage basis, after adding special allowance, if any, paid to him on a permanent basis and not as locum (tenens) or temporarily, to his basic pay in the subordinate scale. If he has reached maximum in the subordinate scale and is in receipt of Fixed Personal Allowance, the increment component thereof (i.e. Rs. 170/-) shall also be added to his basic pay. If no corresponding stage in the clerical scale is available for fitment after adding the Special Pay and incremental component of Fixed Personal Pay, wherever applicable, to the Basic Pay in the subordinate cadre, the fitment shall be made at the next higher stage. Fitment formula on promotion from subordinate to clerical cadre on or after 1.11.1992 will be as per annexure 9.3 and on account of 7th Bipartite Settlement will be as per Annexure 9.4.

 

9.17.2       Employees promoted after 01.11.2002.

 

In respect of employees promoted after 01.11.2002, the fitment may be made as per pre-revised scales of pay under the 7th Bipartite Settlement, which thereafter be converted into revised Basic Pay to avoid anomalies arising out of the revision of pay.

 

Clarification

 

Fitment in case no corresponding stage in the clerical scale is available for fitment after adding the special allowance and increment component of FPA, whichever applicable, to the basic pay in the subordinate scale:

 

(a)       In such cases the fitment shall be made at the next higher stage.

 

(b)       As regards the date of annual increment in such cases, a reference may be made to the footnote to the fitment chart given above.

 

9.17.3       Revised fitment formula on account of wage revision under the Seventh Bipartite Settlement

 

i)          On promotion, a member of the subordinate staff shall be given fitment in the clerical scale of pay on stage-to-stage basis, after adding special pay, if any, paid to him on a permanent basis and not as locum (tenens) or temporarily, to his Basic Pay in the subordinate scale. If he has reached maximum in the subordinate scale and is in receipt of Fixed Personal Pay, the increment component thereof (i.e. Rs. 170/-) shall also be added to his Basic Pay. If no corresponding stage in the clerical scale is available for fitment after adding the special pay and increment component of Fixed Personal Pay, wherever applicable, to the Basic Pay in the subordinate cadre, the fitment shall be made at the next higher stage. The revised fitment chart drawn up by consultation with the Staff Federation is given at Annexure 9.9.

 

ii)         In case a member of the subordinate staff promoted to clerical cadre is in receipt of "Special Compensatory Allowance", having been in service as on the 31st October 1993 in terms of our Circular No. PER/IR/30/1994-95, such allowance shall be payable to him at the rate applicable to the stage of his revised basic pay in clerical scale.

 

iii)         In respect of employees promoted between 1st November 1997 and 31st March 1998, the fitment may be made as per the pre-revised scales of pay under the 6th Bipartite Settlement which may thereafter be converted into revised Basic Pay to avoid anomalies arising out of the revision of scales of pay and special pay from different dates.
