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.
