  • AOA,plz explain the term "promotion with in the same scale".Are the promoted of time scale benificiary of premature incremen? As I was promoted as lecturer BS-17 to lecturer BS-18 through time scale promotion under Federal Directorate of Education,Islamabad,therefore, my basic pay has been decreased Rs.200/-after promotion through time scale in BS-17.Am I eligible for premature increment,whereas AGPR is not granting premature increment,waiting for your expert opinion,plz

    • Promotion within the same scale means when an employee promotes in the same scale. His/her basic pay scale remains the same but designation changes.
      eg. TGT (SG) is in BPS-17 and when he promotes he becomes AHM and his scale remains the same ie 17.

  • AOA
    Before 25.08.2003 I was working as Junior Stenographer. After that through an advertisement in the same department I was selected as Senior Stenographer. During the fixation of my pay no premature increment was granted to me because my department say that you are selected as Senior Stenographer not promoted. Premature increment will be given to those who are promoted. So explain me regarding premature increment. Kia meri increment banti hay ya nahin.

    • Dear same department point is in ur favour. You apply for counting of previous service and pay protection. After all is done then you apply for premature increment. As premature increment is also granted on re-appointment.

    Question NO.1, is that without NOTIFICATION accounts office is not granting increment yet? would you please search it for me.
    Question No.2. Whether after your suggestions to M.TARIQ, he has been granted his increment from AGPR or not yet.?
    Pls answer my question at your earliest and oblige.

    • Dear Manthar Mahar, I have not seen any Notification for the Selection Grade Stenoes for Sindh, As soon as i get the saem i ll share here. However it is your right for the upgradation.

  • Dear Madam, I read all the documents related to same scale promotion and thereon grant of next stage and than premature increment.My case is in Wafaqi Mohtasib, Lahore as my department says that pay fixation benefit during fixation of pay on grant of selection grade from B-15 to B-16 in 1996 was given to me hence in same scale promotion can not be given. I have been submitted some precedents of the employees in same case to whom AGPR, Lahore and Karachi have allowed two increments in same scale promotion. But, even than my case is hanging in Wafaqi Mohtasib office Lahore. Have you any clear cut orders which will help me in my case. Mohtasib office has sought clarification from AGPR, Lahore in this regards. Hearing of case is 20.8.2014

    • Dear Ahmad, it is clear cut proof of the same that prior to this Notification only one increment (next above) was granted to the employees and no premature increment was granted on promotion within the same scale. After issuance of this Notification now all departments are granting the same premature increment. Just get the copies of fixations of these kind of fixation and show the court or the department. Thanks

  • In continuation of my above comment it is stated that O.M. dated 5.11.2012 is not being entertained by my department and Wafaqi Moktasib as well.

  • dear sir, My question is that can any employee get premature increment and annual increment both or only one from both.

  • Dear Shumaila Kamal,

    I was working in Federal Government in (BS-05), today i am appointed another deptt. of Federal Government in (BS-09). my basic salary in Bs-05 was 13630/- (2016). my new salary in (BS-09) is fix by new FG.deptt. at 14130/- (2016). please guide me that, can i eligible for premature increment and pay can be fix after allowing one premature increment at 14730/- instead of 14130/- any rule / order .


  • Dear Madam, AOA. after 2 years ago, I appeared on this forum when my case for premature increment and other on pay fixation on same scale promotion. Wqafaqi Mohtasib was sought clarification from the AGPR, Lahore who was declared my claim as right and W/M accept my claim. But, later the Department appeal that this is a administrative matter and is not under jurisdiction of the W/M.So the decision was dropped. When I appealed to the FST, Lahore in reply to my appeal my department is insisting that one increment on Selection Grade was given to me on 17.3.1996, hence, on same scale promotion benefit of pay fixation (Next stage) can not be granted. Please let me know, is there any rule of pay fixation benefit on same scale promotion exists which will differentiate the Selection Grade and same scale promotion.

  • Dear Madam AoA, please let me guide that is premature increment admissible to the employees who are appointed through proper channel from lower to higher post in the same pay scale or otherwise? Regards

    Kindly clarify the same.
    How Is it possible for me to grant the increment as per existing rules and regulations ?
