Pay Protection on Appointment through Proper Channel
Detail of Pay Protection on Appointment through proper channel is as under:
Appointment in Same Pay Scale
On appointment in the same pay scale the employee will retain the same pay and period of previous service during the current increment would also count for annual increment.
Appointment from Lower to Higher Pay Scale
In an Office of a Federal Government
In case of appointment from lower to higher pay scale, the pay will be fixed just like case of regular promotion i.e. after allowing premature increment after next stage on appointment in a office of a Federal Government.
Provincial or District Government of Province Punjab
If the appointment is in an office of the Provincial or District Government of Province Punjab then fixation would be made at next stage and premature increment would not be allowed.
Appointment from Higher to Lower Pay Scale
If such appointment is made from higher to lower pay scale, the pay will be fixed at immediate lower stage and difference between previous and new pay will be granted as Personal Pay which would be absorbed in the pay on earning of increment or other enhancement in the pay.
Pay Protection for Contract Employees
The protection of pay is also admissible to contract employees, who apply, through proper channel, in terms of S & GAD OM Wing #DS (O & M) 5-3/2004/Contract (MF), dated 2nd August, 2007. All above detail is with reference to DDO Handbook Chapter Fixation of Pay/Pay & Service Verification.
