How to Fix Pay?

Last Updated on February 22, 2014 by ShumailaKamal

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.


Premature Increment Upgradation



Premature Increment on Upgradation

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.

  2. Dear Sir,

    1. When I was selected from BS-17 (Permanent in Federal) to BS-18(contract in Punjab) through proper channel (PPSC) in 2014. My basic pay was 19600 in BS-17 and initial basic was 20,000 in BS-18, difference was 400 i.e. less than the difference between two stages amounting to Rs.2870/-. So my pay was not fixed in next above stage(simply started at 20000). Was the fixation of pay in the next above stage admissible or not?

    2. Again I was selected as Assistant Chief (BS-18) (Permanent in Federal) through FPSC from Senior Subject Specialist(Economics)-BS-18 (Contract in Punjab) in 2018. My pay was remained in the same stage as was in Punjab. Will my case be considered as promotion in the same scale or not? Our Accounts Officer says there dose not exist any such rule of promotion in the same scale. Please, reply.

    Thanks & Regards

  3. Dear Mam. AOA
    My question is that I am serving as Secondary School Teacher (SST) in BPS-17 in Federal Directorate of Education, Islamabad at 11th stage with basic pay Rs. 55670/- Now I am granted Time Scale Promotion and got BPS-18 (Time Scale). Basic pay of 11th stage in BPS-18 is Rs. 59920/- and basic pay of BPS-18 in stage 7th is Rs.58440/-. Please tell me that my pay will be fixed in BPS-18 on stage 07th i.e. Rs. 58440/- or Stage 11th of BPS-18 i.e. Rs.69920/-? . My stage will be remain constant in BPS-18 i.e. 11th or stage can be decreased.?

      1. Can you please tell me how can pay fixation carried out on upgradation from bps 15 to bps 1u.
        What is meant b stages and how can stages will b calculated.

  4. Dear Madam, I am Wapda( federal government) employees in bps-14. And my basic pay is 21030…. Now is going to promote in bps-16… What will be my fix basic pay in bps-16…. Please tell me…. Thanks

  5. Dear admin please reply my question.
    i am working in bps 9 salary 29290/- now i am promoted to scale 11 on 30.11.2020. the question is that my stage in bps 9 and in bps 11 is same 29290. DAO fixed my salary at 31050/- and next annual increment 2021 instead 2020, is it correct or otherway. please guide

    1. If you use the option then ur salary should be as under:

      Pay on 30-11-2020 = 29290/- BPS-09
      Pay on 01-12-2020 = 30020/- Annual Increment
      Pay on 01-12-2020 = 30170/- Next Above BPS-11
      Pay on 01-12-2020 = 31050/- Premature Increment BPS-11

  6. I have been upgraded from BPS-12 to BPS-16 on 29 July 2016 and after 16 days later I have been promoted from BPS-16 to BPS-16 (same scale promotion) . Dear Sir, Do I deserve one increment or two? Thanks

  7. A.o.A Sir…
    I just want to know that whether an employee can avail option of refixation of pay on promotion on 1 Dec just to get premature increment.
    I mean if there’s no benefit to employee on refixation. Example
    Current pay 14330
    Initial Pay on promotion 16120
    Even I take option of refixation on 1 Dec then also the pay next above is 16120, but just to be eligible for premature increment.

    Need guidance in pay fixation rule. An employee was in move over scale BPS-08 and he was declared surplus and then adjusted in BPS-05. He was drawing pay at 2nd last stage of pay scale BPS-08 before appointment in BPS-05 in year 1998. Please clarify the procedure / rule for fixation of pay in BPS-05 because pay drawn in BPS-08 is more than maximum of BPS-05.

    An officer B 16 was upgraded B 17 on 10-09-2014, and further promoted to higher post in same scale B 17 on 11-09-2014.

    1. Whether he is entitled for premature increment on both of the two occasions?

    2. Whether, he may opt for refixation w.e.f. 1st Dec 2014, if yes, then in which scale, B 16 or B 17 or at both of the two events.

    Please guide in detail.

  13. Sir
    In 2014 I got the promotion through proper channel form bps 7 to bps 11(new appointment) in 24 -9-2014. I have not awarded annual increment in Dec 2014 .my pay fix in jan 2015 with one premature increment.Can I get the annual increment of pervious scale bps 7 in Dec 2014.

    1. You can use the option to fix the pay in a new scale too. But you said u already got the annual increment and ur pay fixed already but from which date fixed? You told fixed in Jan 2015. Is it fixed with effect from 2015 0r from 24-09-2014?

  14. Dear mam

    I was working as spst in bps 14
    25/04/19 promoted as PSHT 15
    26/05/19 AGAIN PROMOTED TO CT BPS 15


  15. sir a very strange situation. how the pay will be fixed if promoted from BPS-03 to BPS-02. As a matter of fact a labourer BPS-01 was moved to BPS-02 and then to BPS-03 after qualifying 10 years and 20 years of service respectively. now according to the notified recruitment rules a labourer will be promoted as messenger BPS-02. How to fix the pay if promoted from BPS-03 to BPS-02. Presently in February 2020 the Basic pay of Labourer is Rs. 15,910/-

    1. It first the same employee should be given further moved up scale as “Messenger”. And his pay scale should be minimum BPS-04 as the same employee is already is BPS-03. Now if there is nothing happens then his pay should be fixed next above plus premature increment in BPS-02.

  16. respected sir
    i was working in wapda in BPS-14, after 10 year Grant me time scale up gradation in BPS-16 on seniority grant me promotion in next cadre BPS-15. sir finance office is not granting me increment on senior cadre promotion and not in next above please i need evidence by e-mail.

  18. AoA,

    I was retired from service on 11.11.2018 as Chief Engineer BPS-20. I was UP-Graded as Additional Chief Engineer on 16.08.2016 in BPS-20 and then given Charge of Chief Engineer on Current Charge basis on 27.03.2018. My promotion was held during my service but Promotion orders was issued after retirement on 4.12.2018 and promoted wef 11.11.2018 on last day of my service.
    A usual increment as per rules was given to me and paid accordingly but after promotion Finance office converted my Usual Increment into a Promotion increment. in this way I got no promotion benefit. One my colleague who was not qualified for promotion has also got the same pension as that of mine because of usual Increment.
    Finance Division has already clarified that if an employee opt to fix their pay on 2nd December after getting annual increment which is due on 1st December in their previous scale.
    In my case I have qualified for usual increment which was allowed and paid only for pension calculation should not be removed and remain in tact. Please would you like me to guide under the rules.

    Respected Sir/Madam,

    Please guide, if a person availing official accommodation, then he can obtain the conveyance allowance, while this accommodation at fare distance from his service station.

    1. Dear if the Govt Accommodation is within working premises then cannot claim CA and if it is out of working premises then he will claim CA. In other words if an employee has house in front of the working place but he / she comes to office from out gate then he is also eligible for the conveyance allowance even the distance is 10 yards.

    Respected Madam,
    Please guide about the person who is getting pay at highest stage as Junior Clerk on 31.12.2015
    BS-7 19940/= with one PP 415/=
    On 01.01.2016 post was upgraded to BS-11, now it is requested that, Is the pay will be fixed in the BS-11 including PP or excluding the PP.
    For example if we count in BS-7 19940+415=20335 then it will be fixed in BS-11 20440/=
    If we fixed 19940/=(without PP) in BS-11 it will also be fixed at 20440/=
    which method is correct from the above cited both methods.
    Is the increment will be counted after fixation in BS-11?
    If it will be done then this pay will be fixed as 21035/=
    Please guide me in this regard.

    NOTE:- both methods were exercised by the DAO,Gujrat

    An Assistant in charge of our organization is upgraded from BPS 15 to 16 Wef 01 Jul 2016. He was drawing pay @ Rs. 38150/-Pm in BPS no. 15
    My question is about his pay fixation, in my opinion pay of the official is required to be fixed at next above stage in BPS no. 16 @ Rs 38920/- as the post of assistant in charge has been given one time dispensation by Govt in the notification of upgradation of ministerial posts. Am I right, kindly advise me

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I joined University of Gujrat (Govt. owned University) as Sr. Librarian (BPS-18). Selection Board of University of Gujrat (UOG) offered me 5 advance increments on the bases of my professional experience at the time of selection and mentioned it in appointment letter. I applied in UOG through proper Channel. Before joining University of Gujrat I was working in Federal Govt. Department of Libraries, National Library of Pakistan, Islamabad as Assistant Director (BPS-17). My basic pay at National Library of Pakistan was more than the starting basic pay of BPS-18. i.e. Rs. 23200
    How should University of Gujrat fix my pay?

    1. First UOG should fix my pay one step above my running basic pay then 5 increments should be added to my new basic pay i.e. 24500+ 7500= Rs. 32000/-
    2. UOG should just add 5 increments to my initial basic pay of BPS-18 i.e. 20000+7500= Rs. 27500/-

    Please reply me with some Finance rules. I shall be very thankful to you.

  84. AoA. Respected madam. I need some guidance from you. Actually I am running after the admin. and pleading for grant of pre-mature increment and annual increment etc. but they have denied it. My full case is as under:

    I was working in BPs-14 on regular basis on 26.7.2009 and my basic pay was Rs.9480/-
    I was appointed as Research Associate in BPS-17 on adhoc basis w.e.f.27.7.2009 and my pay was fix at the initial stage of BPS-17, i.e. 9850/- On this appointment (on adhoc basis) my pay was protected as lien was granted for 02 years.
    I was not given an pre-mature increment on my appointment on adhoc basis. However, on December 01, 2009, I was allowed an annual increment in BPS-14 (permanent post) and salary was raised Rs.9850/- and re-fixed in BPS-17 at Rs.10590/-
    Meanwhile, my appointment on adhoc basis was extended twice (without any break or reversion etc.) till 15.8.2010 (as I was appointment on the same post and scale on regular basis w.e.f.16.8.2010. My pay was protected as I had applied through proper channel. Again my pay was fixed at Rs.10590/- and I was not allowed any pre-mature increment.
    Unfortunately, I was not given even the annual increment in BPS-17 (or even in BPS-14) on 01.12.2010, despite the fact that i had requested to refix my pay in BPS-17 after allowing me annual increment in BPS-14.

    Now, my queries are as follow;

    1. Did I deserve for pre-mature increment either on my appointment in a higher scale on adhoc basis or on regular basis (from which date)?
    2. Did I deserve for grant of annual increment on 01.12.2010 (either in BPS-14 or BPS-17)?

    I shall be highly thankful if you kindly guide me with copy of relevant rules in this regard.

    thanking you in anticipation.

          1. Dear Madam

            With refrence to you reply to Mr. Fazal Ghani data 30.10.2013 in which you said that

            “Dear Fazal I have only the Notification No. 3 (11) R.2/2011 dated 12th April 2011 in connection with the Admissibility of Increments beyond the Scope of Pay Scales”

            So i want the same letter to you, if you have.

  87.

    Please advise.

  88. Assalam-o-Alaikum , Madam, I was granted one advance increment on standing 1st in accounts training w.e.f 12,9,1995 and my pay fixed at the maximum of scale BPS-9 i.e Rs.3060/- but later on annual increment on 1.12.1995 has not been granted to me with plea, that your pay is at the maximum of BPS.9.
    Plz advise. Thnx,

  89. Madam:- My case has already been in your notice, i.e. Due to maximum of pay CMA not grant me one increment on my promotion within the same scale. On a similar nature of case Punjab Ombudsman in his order clarified that as per Finance Department notification dated September 19,1990, “one advance increment” is admissible in case the civil servant was at the maximum of Basic Pay Scale, acquired under Rule 8 ibid. Denial of one advance increment to complainant would amount to maladministration, would you kindly help us to provide the notification of Sep 19-1990 please.

      1. Dear ShumailaKamal:

        my post has been upgraded from BS-12 to BS-14 and my basic pay Rs.8000/- was in BS-12 and Basic Pay Rs.8000/- has been fixed in BS-14..

        Please send me Notification No. 3 (11) R.2/2011 dated 12th April 2011 at my mailing address “[email protected]

  90. Madam! I was serving in GHQ Rawalpindi as LDC since 13 Feb 1993 and I was reappointed in PMO (NESCOM) on 30 Sep 2011 as Junior Assistant in SPS 04 (equivalent to BPS 9-10) but I have not been granted annual increment due on 01 Dec 2011 neither from PMO nor GHQ. Please advise meet and also quote filling on the case. Thanks

    1. Madam! I have read in “Guide book for drawing &disbursing officer (DDO Hand Book Part 2) in para 12.2.2 as under:
      “Annual increment is allowed in a pay scale on 1st December each year provided duty period, during the period under increment (1st December – 30th November) is at least six months in that pay scale or higher pay scale”

      Please help me to locate such ruling / OM / any quotable document. Thanks

  91. Kindly mail me the official document which states/explains: Pay protection Rule. Just recently I was given scale 14 from 12.

    Revised scale was due on 1-Oct-2011.
    Notification was sent in the month of April, 2012.
    Now account branch says, that recovery will be made because an extra increment (on 31 dec 2012) was added. Could you kindly send me pay protection rule or official scanned copy.

    Moreover, My scale was revised twice: once on 1-Oct-2006 (11 to 12) and on 1-Oct-2011 (12 to 14). Government/Court has recently decided that, a premature increment will be awarded on upgradation. Our organization says, our case does not fall in upgradation but higher/Senior Basic Pay Scale category and not the upgradation thus no arrears.

    Please guide and send me official supportive documents, so that i can send application to higher authorities or go to court. Thanks.

      1. Hello, Shumaila,
        I am a govt servant and want to apply for another govt job in the same scale i.e. BPS 17.. Can I apply? I am raising this question because my admin is saying that you can’t apply through proper channel for the same scale in another govt organization and would be better off by applying directly? Please help me in this regard, keeping in view that my service is 11 months old i.e starts from 16 Aug 2012.. thank you

  92. Dear Admin,

    Now Finance Division has allowed pre-mature increment on up-gradation as on promotion. Ab premature increment BS-16 ki miley gi ya BS-15? kindly advise.



  93. I joined the PAEC through proper channel in the scale Group II(2079-116-3819) from Edu.Deptt.N.W.F.P in the scale(2065-161-4480) on that time my basic pay was Rs.3031 and my pay was fixed at Rs.3007 .what about my pay fixation/protection.

    1. Dear Asif , I think they wrongly counted your pay. Pay cannot be less than the previous pay. And I think there should also be a premature increment as you applied through proper channel and your previous pay and service was protected.

  94. Thank you for your keen interest in the matter I have send you email please check out. Also please study para-5 of the notification, some peoples are of the view that no doubt that that time there was no concept of P-Pay, but according to the contents of para-5 of the notification your increment as P-Pay is justified in

  95. Dear Sir, On my promotion as UDC In BPS-7 I was not granted increment as I was already in BPS-7 due to selection and was at the maximum. Now after allowing premature on promotion in the same scale junior to me have granted increment whereas being a senior and due to maximum of the BPS-7 at the time of promotion i could not be granted. Is this not discrimination and injustice that junior have enjoyed the financial benefit of this latest decision and the seniors are ignored.

      1. Thank you very much for response, unfortunately that time there was no concept of personal pay due to this the accounts authority refused the case

          1. Respected Shumaila Kamal. I have the same problem as put forth by Mr. Ghani above. in our department of hundered of such cases is as such there was no concept of P/Pay at that therefore the Establishment Section are not taking up the case with CMA. It will be better if the case is take up with MAG by CMA at their own end, may be it will be benificial for all. What is your valouable views about it?

      2. Aslam-o-Alakum, Madam, This is Ghani again requesting you to leave a reply. I have leaned from a colleque that discremination as I have already been pointed for your precious comments is now under active consideration of certains department and it is expected to be resolved. Is it right? we should wait? individually I cannot go to FST for an arrears of 60 thousands. Can Wafaqi mohtasib heare my case and weather I shout go there or not. Thanks.

          1. Madam Aslam-o-Alakum, Finance Division has issued would you kindly like O.M F.No.11(4)R-2/2013/1427 dated 22-10-2013. please read para-3 Whether my case covered under this. This increment while on the maximum of pay scale is admissible in the case of promotion in the same scale?. Secondly . Ombudsman in his order clarified that as per Finance Department notification dated September 19,1990, “one advance increment” is admissible in case the civil servant was at the maximum of Basic Pay Scale, acquired under Rule 8 ibid. Would you please help me to provide the copy of notification of 19-9-1990?
            Thanks may Allah bless you.
