Fixation of Pay on Promotion or Upgradation
as per Revised Pay Rules, 2008
October 25, 2011 By admin 34 Comments
Fixation of Pay on Promotion or Upgradation as per Revised Pay Rules, 2008
Many of our visitors are still asking some doubts pertaining the Fixation of Pay on Promotion or
Upgradation. Particularly getting confusion in the calculation of annual and promotional
increment and it will be rounded off.
Every Government employee has to submit an option when he gets promotion or upgradation.
The option is under rule FR22(I)(a)(1) and the option have to submit within one month from the
date of promotion or upgradation. When an employee accepts the promotion he will be asked to
opt whether his pay will be fixed on the date of promotion or the date of next increment. His pay
will be fixed as per the option has been exercised by him under rule FR22(I)(a)(1).
The Rule No.13 of CCS (Revised Pay-2008) says, On promotion an employee will get one
increment equal to three per cent of his basic pay (Pay in the pay band + Grade pay).
For illustration If an employee opts to get his pay fixed in the higher post from the date of his
promotion(1.12.2010), his pay will be fixed as follows
His Basic pay on the date of promotion (as on 1.12.2010) : 11,500 + 2,800 = 14,300
Adding of 3% of Basic pay as Promotional increment (rounded off to the
next multiple of ten) :
430 + 11,500 + 2,800 =
14,730
Promoted to in which Grade pay : 4200
Pay will be fixed on the date of promotion (as on 1.12.2010) : 11,930 + 4200 = 16,130
Date of next increment on July 2011
On the date of next increment his pay will be i.e. 1st July 2011 : Adding of
3% of Basic pay as Annual increment (rounded off to the next multiple of
ten) :
490 + 11,930 + 4,200 =
16,620
For example, the same employee, if he gets his promotion on 1.2.2011, his basic pay will be
calculated as follows
He should be given his option to fix his pay under rule FR22(I)(a)(1) on the date of next
increment.
His Basic pay on the date of promotion (as on 1.02.2011) :
11,500 + 2,800 =
14,300
Adding only the next higher Grade pay in the promotional hierarchy :
The pay continues upto the date of next increment i.e., July, 2011
11,500 + 4,200 =
15,700
On the day of next increment the pay will be refixed (as on 1.07.2011) :
Adding of 3% of Basic pay as Promotional increment (rounded off to the
next multiple of ten) :
11,500 + 2,800 + 430 =
14,730
On the day of next increment the pay will be refixed (as on 1.07.2011) :
Adding of 3% of Basic pay as Annual increment (rounded off to the next
multiple of ten) :
11,930 + 2,800 + 450 =
15,180
His pay will be on 1.07.2011 :td>
12,380 + 4,200 =
16,580

When calculate the annual or promotional increment to an employee, there should be a rule
should follow as per the office memorandum (F.No.1/1/2008-IC /
http://finmin.nic.in/6cpc/fno1108dt290109.pdf) published by Finmin dated on 29.01.2009 . The
rule says, if the amount of increment comes to Rs.1900.70 paise, then the amount will be
rounded off to Rs.1900; if the amount of increment works out to be Rs.1901, then it will be
rounded off to Rs.1910.
Normally, the fraction of 50 paise and above to be rounded to one rupee and fraction of less than
50 paise to be ignored. But whereas here, the fraction of 90 paise will be ignored and one rupee
and above will be rounded off to ten rupees
Increment Day for Central Government
employees 1st July of every year
July 1, 2012 By admin 2 Comments
1st July of every year Increment Day for Central
Government employees
As per the 6th Pay Commission CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008,
provisions of Rule 10 with effect from 1.1.2006, uniform date of
increment was implemented for all Central Government
employees i.e. 1st July of every year. One more condition for
getting increment is provided in this rule, completing six months
in the same pay as on 1st of July are only eligible to be granted
the annual increment. Who have not rendered six months period
of service as on first 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.
Today is the Increment Day for all Central Government employees. If the increment day falls
on Sundays or holidays, the next working day will be taken as resumption day. In case of an
employee taken leave 2.7.2012, his increment benefit will be granted only from the date on
which he resumes duty and not from the first of July.
There would be rare chance to occur such problems to take leave on increment day. But whereas,
better to avoid to take leave on first working day of any year. Normally most in the Government
organisations, promotion orders are not publishing on the date of promotion. If the promotion
date falls on first January, there should be condition on assumption that the promotee should be
present for the duty on that day of promotion. If not, the promotion is to be granted only from the
date of resumption of duty on return from leave. According to this rule, qualifying period for
earning an increment is six months on 1st July, the date of next increment will postponed to the
next year.
In the light of the above situation, if the first day of any year falls on Sundays or Holidays, the
Dopt clarified that the Government servants who join posts on the 1st working day of the year
will be treated to have completed six months of service on 1st of J uly of that year for the
purpose of granting them annual increment on that day.
Every Central Government employee should know the calculation of Annual or Promotion
increment, one increment is equal three percent of the sum of the Pay in the Pay Band plus
Grade Pay and it should be calculated and rounded off to the next multiple of ten.
Annual Increment calculation :-
An employees basic pay of Rs.12,030 including Grade Pay of Rs.2,800, his increment fixation
will be fixed as follows
Basic Pay including Grade Pay : Rs.12,030
3% increment for Rs.12,030 and it rounded off to the next multiple of ten : Rs. 360
His Basic Pay as fixed on 1st July : Rs.12,390
[Note that in the case of calculation of increments under the revised pay structure, paise
should be ignored, but any amount of a rupee or more should be rounded off to next multiple
of

1.9.2008?
Earned leave for persons serving in Vacation Departments:-
(1) (a) A Government servant(other than a military officer) serving in a Vacation Department
shall not be entitled to any earned leave in respect of duty performed in any year in which he
avails himself of the full vacation.
(b) In respect of any year in which a Government servant avails himself of a portion of the
vacation, he shall be entitled to earned leave in such proportion of 30 days, as the number of days
of vacation not taken bears to the full vacation:
Provided that no such leave shall be admissible to a Government servant not in permanent
employ or quasi-permanent employ in respect of the first year of his service.
(c) If, in any year, the Government servant does not avail himself of any vacation, earned leave
shall be admissible to him in respect of that year under rule 26.
For the purpose of this rule, the term year shall be construed not as meaning a calendar year in
which duty is performed but as meaning twelve months of actual duty in a Vacation Department.
A Government servant entitled to vacation shall be considered to have availed himself of a
vacation or a portion of a vacation unless he has been required by general or special order of a
higher authority to forgo such vacation or portion of a vacation:
Provided that if he has been prevented by such order from enjoying more than fifteen days of the
vacation, he shall be considered to have availed himself of no portion of the vacation.
When a Government servant serving in a Vacation Department proceeds on leave before
completing a full year of duty, the earned leave admissible to him shall be calculated not with
reference to the vacations which fall during the period of actual duty rendered before proceeding
on leave but with reference to the vacation that falls during the year commencing from the date
on which he completed the previous year of duty.
As per Rule 29(1) the half pay leave account of every Government servant (other than a military
officer shall be credited with half pay leave in advance, in two installments of ten days each on
the first day of January and July of every calendar year.
2. Whether encashment of leave is allowed after LTC is availed.
Sanction of leave encashment should, as a rule, be lone in advance, at the time of sanctioning the
LTC. However, ex-post facto sanction of leave encashment on LTC may be considered by the
sanctioning authority as an exception in deserving
cases within the time limit prescribed for submission of claims for LTC.
3. Whether encashment of Leave with LTC can be availed at the time when the LTC is availed
by the Government servant only or can leave be encashed at the time when LTC is availed by
family members?
A Govt. servant can be permitted to encash earned leave upto 10 days either at the time of
availing LTC himself or when his family avails it, provided other conditions are satisfied.
4. Whether leave encashment should be revised on retrospective revision of pay/D.A?
In terms of 38-A of CCS(Leave) Rules, encashment of EL alongwith LTC is to be calculated on
pay admissible on the date of availing LTC+DA admissible on that date. If pay or DA admissible
has been revised with retrospective effect, the Govt. servant would be entitled to encashment of
Leave on the revised rates.
5. Whether encashment of Earned Leave allowed to a Govt. servant prior to his joining the
Central Govt. is to be taken into account while retiring ceiling of leave encashment on his
superannuation and retirement from Central Govt.?

Bodies for services rendered in the concerned Govt. etc. need not be taken into accounl for
calculating the ceiling of 300 days of Earned leave to be encashed as per CCS(Leave) Rule.
6. Whether leave encashment can be sanctioned to a Govt. servant on his superannuation
while under suspension?
Leave encashment can be sanctioned, however Rule 39(3) of CCS (Leave) Rules, 1972 allows
with holding of leave encashment in the case of a Govt. servant who retires from service on
attaining the age of superannuation while under suspension or while disciplinary or criminal
proceedings are pending against him, if in view of the authority there is a possibility of some
money becoming recoverable from him on conclusion of the proceedings against him. On
conclusion of the proceedings he/she will become eligible to the amount so withheld after
adjustment of Government dues, if any.
7.Whether leave encashment can be sanctioned to a Govt. servant on his dismissal/removal,
from service?
A govt. servant who is dismissed/removed from service or whose services are terminated ceases
to have any claim to leave at his credit from the date of such dismissal, as per rule 9(1). Hence he
is not entitled to any leave encashment.
8. Whether interest is payable on delayed payment of leave encashment dues?
No, there is no provision in the CCS (Leave) Rule 1972 for payment of interest on leave
encashment.

up a post in other Ministries/Department of the Central Govt. within the bond period?

of 3 years. As the Govt. servant would still be serving the Govt. / Department he may be allowed

Orders issued by DOPT are not automatically applicable to the employees of Central Public
Sector Undertakings/Autonomous Bodies, Ranking industry etc. It is for the PSUs/ Autonomous
Bodies to decide the applicability of the rules/instructions issued for the central Government
employees to their employees in consultation with their Administrative Ministries.
11. Whether Govt. servant can be permitted to leave station/go abroad while on CCL?
Child care leave is granted to a woman employee to take care of the needs of the minor children.
If the child is studying abroad or the Govt. servant has to go abroad for taking care of the child,
she may do so subject to other conditions laid down for this purpose.
12. What is the intention behind the instruction that CCL is to be treated like EL and
sanctioned as such?
The intention is that CCL should be availed with prior approval of leave sanctioning authority
and that the combination of CCL with other leave, if any, should be as per the restriction of
combination with EL. The restriction of the limit of 180 days at a stretch as applicable in the case
of EL will not apply in case of CCL. The other conditions like CCL may not be granted for less
than 15 days or in more than 3 spells, etc., in a year, will apply.

and that period shall be debited against his leave account as though it were half pay leave, to the
extent such leave is due, the period in excess of such leave due being treated as extraordinary
leave.
(2) Willful absence from duty after the expiry of leave renders a Government servant liable to
disciplinary action.


CASUAL LEAVE (CL)
As provided in the explanation below Rule 11 of the CCS (Leave) Rules, 1972, Casual
Leave (CL) is not a recognized form of leave and is not subject to any rules made by the
Government of India. A Government servant on casual leave is not treated as absent from
duty and his pay is not intermitted.

For administrative reason and in order to ensure, as far as possible, uniformity of
treatment in this respect, the following instructions have been (almost universally) laid
down by various organizations:-

1. Casual Leave can be granted only when this can be done without inconvenience to public,
or administration, and the work of the employee can be distributed and performed by the
remaining staff or can be held up without inconvenience till his return to duty.

2. Casual Leave is limited to maximum of 8 days in a calendar year. The number of days specified is
maximum only and no one can claim the maximum number of days as a matter of right.

3. Individuals appointed and joining duty during the middle of a calendar year may be allowed
