Re-Fixation of Pay on Re-appointment after Allowing Annual Increment in the Previous Scale

Last Updated on October 31, 2021 by ShumailaKamal

Government of the Pakistan Finance Division has issued Office Memorandum No. 2(1)/R-I/2009-1030 dated 27th May 2010 in connection with Re-Fixation of Pay on Re-appointment after allowing annual increment in the previous scale. The option of fixation of pay after getting annual increment in the previous scale on re-appointment was granted to Mr. Muhammad Asif Akram, Senior Auditor who was earlier working in BPS-05 and then re-appointed in BPS-11.

This office memorandum of the Finance Division clears the anomaly of the fixation of the pay on re-appointed in case the employee is re-appointed after 1st June. In this situation, the employee will get the annual increment as usual in the previous pay scale on 1st December and then he will fix his pay in the new pay scale. It is further added that the premature increment on re-appointment is already in vogue.

With reference to the Office of the Accountant General Pakistan Revenues letter No. TM/HA/1-73/Misc/Clarification/287 dated 28th October 2009, on the subject and it is clarified that appointment from one post to another involving assumption of duties carrying greater responsibilities for the purpose of FR-22 & FR-80 has been treated at par with promotion for fixation of pay in terms of O.M No. F.1(2)NG-Imp/71 dated 16th December 1977.

Accordingly, the benefit of annual increment based on the option as provided in O.M of 14th October 1975 is meant for fixation of pay on promotion with a view to avoid loss of the annual increment for the relevant calendar year in cases in which the condition of at least 6 months service which otherwise counts for the purpose, is true and is admissible in the case under reference.

Special thanks to Mr. MUHAMMAD ALI for proving the information.

  6. AoA:

    Please advise me on my following situation:

    I have been working in BPS-17 in a govt department w.e.f. August 1994 to April 1999. During my service i applied through proper channel to another govt department for next higher post equivalent to BPS-18 (i.e. SPS-9). On selection i joined the new department without any break in April 1999. During my service in previous department i did Masters in Engineering and was granted 4 x advanced increments for this qualification as per government rule.

    After joining new department (in higher scale) my pay was fixed at the minimum basic pay of SPS-9 without any advanced increments. I applied for counting of my previous service towards pension in the same year and case has recently been materialized (in year Jan 2017) i.e. my previous service has been counted w,e,f, August 1994.

    Now my question is whether i am eligible for re-fixation of my pay at the level of year 1999 alongwith the 4 x advanced increments, which were granted to me in BPS-17?

    Thanks in advance, please.

  23. AoA

    we are an autonomous body having some sort of special pay scales. we have our own financial and recruitment rules which can be altered or modified by the Board of Governors (BoG). One of our officer of Grade 18 applied for a position of Grade 19 through proper channel and after having gone through test and interview selected to the position applied for. He assumed charged of new post in August 2014. The basic pay he was drawing in old post was Rs.60000/- (with annual increment of Rs.5000) and the initial basic pay of new post is 62000 (with annual increment of Rs.6200). Our rules are silent regarding pay fixation, kindly advise me in this regard how to fix his pay.

    Pay as LDC (BS-5) Rs. 1280/ month, I then promoted as UDC (BS-7) on 03-8-1993 and my pay was fixed as 1395/-. Is there any chance for me to have any financial benefit after introduction of your this notification.

    Looking forward for your kind advice.

    My regards.
