- Any personal benefit of the nature of increase in pay specially granted to Govt servant shall not be treated as a cause of anomaly for others.
- The anomaly should be resolved by re-fixing pay of the senior equal to that of junior, and if there is no such stage, at the stage next above in his own pay scales.
- The basis and the principals explained above shall apply in general to cover all cases of anomalies in pay fixation.
- The basis prescribed for determination of senior and junior is only in the context of removal of anomalies and not for any other purpose i.e promotion/demotion etc.
- These orders shall also apply mutates mutandis to the personnel including Cadets/recruits of the Armed Forces, Civil Armed Forces and the Civil Servants paid from Defence Estimates.
