Various staff organisations had time and again requested that those employees who were due to get their annual increment between February to June during 2006 may be granted an increment on 01 Jan 2006 in the pre-revised scales.
The Govt has finally decided to accede to the request and the orders to the effect stand issued by the Ministry of Finance for civil central govt employees. The same can be accessed by clicking here.
The following is the operative part of the order :
“…The President is pleased to decide that in relaxation of stipulation under Rule 10 of these Rules, those central government employees who were due to get their annual increment between February to June during 2006 may be granted one increment on 1.1 .2006 in the pre-revised pay scale as a one-time measure and thereafter will get the next increment in the revised pay structure on 1.7.2006 as per Rule 10 of CCS(RP)Rules, 2008. The pay of the eligible employees may be re-fixed accordingly…”
As is the general trend, similar orders shall be issued by the Defence and the Railway Ministries for their employees.
The cumulative arrears of pay and revised fixation of pension (in case of those who have retired) would now have to be re-calculated and released in case of affected employees/pensioners.
