Confusion/Mistake in the Notification

If we look at the last para (h) of the Notification, it is saying that the term basic pay will also include the amount of Personal Pay granted in annual increments beyond the maximum of the existing pay scales. If this para is correct then the employees will get this DRA on running basic pay. Because personal pay always means here beyond the pay scales that are always with running basic pay relates. Let’s wait for its correction.
