I will explain the full procedure of fixation of pay on promotion within the same scale with the reference of Finance Division (Regulation Wing) Islamabad notifications. Here is to mention that the employee who is promoted within the same scale will get 2x increments, 1x Next Above Increment and the other one is Premature Increment. The next above increment was already in vague and premature increment on promotion within the same scale is allowed vide Finance Div Notification No. F.11 (30) R-2/2010-1180 dated 5th November 2012. Here is to mention that the Premature Increment on promotion within the same scale was granted by the Finance Division O.M No. F.2 (8)R-I(1)/80 dated 17-11-1991 and the same was stopped by the Auditor General Pakistan vide letter No. 164/R-I/14C/87KW/267 dated 26-08-1996.
What is Promotion within the Same Scale?
I think many employees don’t know “what is promotion within the same scale”. I will illustrate you with example about the same.
Suppose an employee is working as LDC (SG) BPS-09 and his/her next promotion is UDC that has also the same scale BPS-09. In this situation the promotion of the employee is within the same scale i.e the employee before promotion was in BPS-09 and after promotion he/she is also in BPS-09.
The second example of the same is that Supdt in some departments is in BPS-16 and his/her next promotion is Admin Officer (BPS-16). In this situation the employee also promoted in the same scale i.e before the promotion the employee was in BPS-16 and after promotion he/she also got the same scale BPS-16.
How to Fix Pay in Promotion within the same Scale?
Suppose a LDC (SG) BPS-09 is getting Rs. 12660/- as basic pay and he is promoted as UDC (BPS-09) wef 02-05-2012 then his/her pay will be as under:-
|Pay on 01-05-2012||12660/-||BPS- 09 (LDC-SG)|
|Pay on 02-05-2012 on Promotions UDC BPS- 09||13420/-||Next Above + 1x Premature Increment|
If the same employee is promoted on 02-06-2012 then he can opt to pay his pay fixed after getting annual increment as LDC (SG). If he/she doesn’t opt to pay his/her pay on 02-12-2012 he is not eligible to get the annual increment on 01-12-2012 as he/she has not continuous 6 months service as UDC (in new scale). Now the situation after option will be as under:-
|Pay on 30-11-2012||12660/-||BPS- 09 (LDC-SG)|
|Pay on 01-12-2012||13040/-||Annual Increment (LDC-SG) BPS-09|
|Pay on 02-12-2012 on Promotion as UDC in BPS- 09||13800/-||Next Above + 1x Premature Increment|
