FACTS ABOUT DATE OF INCREMENT AFTER 6TH PAY COMMISSION

The Increment date is July 1st for all Central Government Employees






All employees who got their last increment between 2.1.2005 and 1.1.2006 would get their next increment on 1.7.2006. Those, whose date of increment falls on 1.1.2006, will draw increment in the pre-revised scale of pay on 1.1.2006 and the next increment on 1.7.2006 (as per O.M. dated 13 Sep, 2008).

Before 2006-Jan for those whose increment date were varied, after the implementation of VI CPC the announcement was made that for all, the increment date is July 1st which resulted in benefit to some and as a problem to others.

For some who got their increment between July and Dec 2005, the next increment then got was only on July 2006. That is they received their next increment within seven months, which was most beneficial to them.

For those who got their increment on Jan 2005, the next increment they received was only on July 2006. The span between one increment and the next ranged to 17 months resulting in a grave situation for them.

For receiving an increment instead of waiting for 12 months, we had to sit for 17 months thus resulting in a dire situation. So far there had been no salvation for those who experienced it.

Sum of Increment:-
For receiving one increment equal to 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the existing grade pay will be computed and rounded off to the next multiple of 10. This will be added to the existing pay in the pay band.

Receiving two increments simultaneously:-
Eligible of receiving two increments simultaneously, those whose promotion ranges from January to June, accordingly to FR22(I)(a) (1) option would receive two increments on July 1st. (pay fixation on the date of next increment)

Taking together in to calculation both Promotional Increment and Annual Increment, two increments would be granted (as per O.M. dated 13 Sep, 2008). Even then while calculating of increment only the old Grade Pay in taken into consideration.

Leave on July first:-
If a government servant is on leave on the day of July first, the increased pay will be drawn only from the date on while he resumes duty and not from the first of July.

Employees whose DNI falls between 1st February to 1st June(Pre Revised Scale)...
Anomaly in annual increment arising due to the implementation of 6th Central Pay Commission Recommendations

The point regarding the anomaly relating to Rule 9 of the CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, concerning the date of next increment has been discussed in second Anomaly Committee meeting held on 27th March 2010. According to the Minutes of the meeting, Published by DOP&T on 4th May 2010, the Staff Side reiterated their demand that employees whose date of next increment falls between 1st February to 1st June may be given an increment, as a onetime measure, in the pre revised pay scales on 1.1.2006 as has already been done in respect of employees whose next date of increment was 1.1.2006.

The representatives of the Department of Expenditure stated that it is important to first examine the repercussions of granting an increment w.e.f 1. 1. 2006 in the pre revised pay scale because such a decision may eventually lead to certain other anomalies. After a long discussion, it was agreed that the Official Side would re- examine the matter and either suitable clarification in this regard will be issued before the next meeting of the National Anomaly Committee or if there is a need, the Department of Expenditure shall discuss the matter again with the representatives of the Staff Side.

While discussing the Agenda No.5 (v), the representatives of the Govt. had expressed apprehension that granting an increment w.e.f. 01.01.2006 in pre-revised pay- scale to those employees whose date of next increment falls between 1st February to 1st June, as a one time measure may eventually lead to certain anomalies and therefore proposal had to be examined first. In this connection, by all probabilities, it may not create anomaly because the seniors got this benefit by taking the increment on or before 01.01.2006. However more realistic approach could be to revise the pay on the date of increment / promotion between 01.02.2006 to 01.06.2006 and allow the next increment on 01.07.2006. In this case the employees may forego the arrears for the period from 01.01.2006 till revision of pay as they will draw pre-revised pay till then

But ,as agreed by the official side,the suitable clarification not been issued till now .

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Date of next increment in cases where Government servants are not able join posts in a particular grade pay on promotion/appointment on 1st of January of a year due to Sunday or Gazetted Holiday – Clarification regarding.

As per the provisions of Rule 10 of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008, w.e.f. 1.1.2006, in the case of all Central Government employees there is a uniform date of increment, i.e. 1st July of every year.
Government servants completing six months and above in the revised pay structure as on 1st of July are eligible to be granted the increment. From the above provision of CCS (RP) Rules it flows that Government servants who have rendered less than 6 months of service as on 1st of July of a year will not be eligible to draw increment on that day and their date of increment will fall 12 months later on the next 1st of July.
Accordingly, all the Government servants who join posts in a particular grade on account of promotion / appointment etc., on 1st of January of a year will be eligible to draw their annual increment on the 1st of July of that year. However, those who join the posts between 2nd January and 30th June, will not be eligible for the same.
In the light of the above position, some administrative departments have sought clarification from this Department regarding date of next increment in cases where Government servants are not able join posts in a particular grade pay on promotion / appointment on 1st of January of a year due to 1st of January falling on a Sunday or Gazetted holiday.

In this connection, it is clarified that in the normal course, if a Government servant was to join post in a grade pay on appointment / promotion on 1st of January of the year happened to be a Sunday or Gazetted holiday, the Government servants who join posts on the 1st working day of the year will be treated to have completed 6 months of service on 1st of July of that year for the purpose of granting them annual increment on that day.
