Pay fixation occurs on many occasions in the service life of an employee. It is generally fixed when an employee is promoted, upgraded, re-appointed, gets move-over, gets selection grade, on getting advance increments etc. The move-over and selection grade have already been eliminated in December 2001. However if there is any back date case of such category pay can be fixed. Let’s see the detailed view of pay fixation.
Pay Fixation Procedure
Full detail of pay fixation procedure in various cases is as under:
Pay Fixation on Promotion
Whenever an employee is promoted in the same scale, pay is fixed by adding 1 x premature increment into his/her running basic pay. When an employee is promoted from lower scale to higher scale pay is fixed by adding 1x premature increment into the next stage of the higher scale. However if the stage of the next scale is equal to the lower scale then 1x additional increment is granted to the employee. Thus this employee will avail now the benefit of 2x increments instead of 1x increment.
Pay fixation on Up-gradation
If an employee is upgraded his pay is fixed into the next stage of the higher scale and if the same situation of both stage then 1x increment also be granted to the employee. However premature increment is not granted for an employee who is up-graded. According to new notification the up-graded employees are also entitled to get premature increment on their up-gradation.
Pay Fixation on Re-Appointment
If an employee is re-appointed then the pay is fixed after getting the pay protection from the higher authorities. The higher authorities only give pay protection when an employee applies for the post through proper channel. If the employee does not apply through proper channel then he/she makes his own loss by loosing the previous service. I advise all the employees who don’t know that when ever they apply for another post they must apply through proper channel. There are many examples that employees did not apply through proper channel and they lost their previous service. Thus they made a huge financial loss to themselves.
On re-appointment 1x premature increment is also granted and pay is fixed in the same way as described above.
Pay fixation on Move-Over
The move-over case occurred in the past before December 2001. The move-over was due to the employee if he/she reached to the peak of the stages. In case of Move-over the pay was fixed into the next scale and pay was taken the next stage of the higher scale.
Pay Fixation on Selection Grade
Fixation of pay for an employee who has been granted Selection Grade is the same as Promotion case. In this case 1x premature increment is also granted to the employee as in promotion case.
Pay fixation in case of Advance Increments
In case of Advance Increments No. of increments that the employee has granted as advance increments is added to his/her running pay.
