Clarification Pay Fixation on Appointment and Promotion When Pay Difference Equal or Less than a Full Increment
It has now been intimated by the office of the Auditor General of Pakistan Islamabad that the issue of premature increment on re-appointment from one post to another has been re-examined in the Regs: Wing and the opinion arrived at is given below:-
The admissibility of premature increment is regulated by Fin: Div’s O.M. No. F-1(2) NG-Imp/71, dt.16/2/1977, which clarifies the concept of pay fixation and premature increment in the scheme of National Pay and Allces vide clause (1) of Part-I of Fin: Div’s O.M No.1(2)-NG-Imp/71, dated 8/3/172, as reproduced below:-
Premature Increment in Case of Difference of Pay Equal or Less
In cases of promotion from a lower to a higher post, where the stage in the National Scale of the higher post, next above the substantive pay in the National scale of the lower post, gives a pay increase equal to or less than, a full increment, the initial pay in the National Pay Scale pertaining to the higher post will be fixed after allowing a premature increment in the National Pay Scale of the higher post. The existing Rules/Orders regarding the grant of minimum pay increases on promotion shall be treated as withdrawn.
According o the clarification issued vide Fin: Div’s O.M. dt.16/2/1977, the word “Promotion” occurring in the first line of the said clause has been used in the context of the recruitment rules Accordingly, it mends an appointment from one post to another involving assumption of duties or responsibilities of greater importance for the purpose of FR-22 and 30.
Clarification Appointment and Promotion Combination
Similarly, the words “Promotion/appointment” used in Fin: Div’s U.O No.893-R-3/81 dt.24/10/1981 may also be interpreted in the context of the recruitment rules. Therefore, Finance Division did not err in using the word “appointment” in combination with the word “Promotion” in the aforesaid U.O. letter.
In the light of the foregoing position, the benefit of premature increment is admissible to all those Govt. servants whose promotion/appointment involves the assumption of duties and responsibilities of greater importance, than those attached to their previous posts.
Moreover, the provisions of pay fixation contained in FR & SR and Govt. I instructions/decisions are applicable to Govt. Servants cannot automatically be extended to autonomous bodies.
In view of the above, the office of the Auditor General of Pakistan has withdrawn their earlier ruling circulated vide this office letter even No.dt.21/5/2001.
