Subject: Protection of Higher starting pay allowed on ad hoc appointment on eventual selection by the Union public service commission.
A question has been raised whether higher starting pay allowed by way of grainting advance increment on ad hoc appointment can be protected on eventual selection by the Union Public service commission on regular basis. It is clarified that an appointment made by an order or notification issued by or in the name of the appointing authority is a valid appointment for the purpose of and the rules governing fixation of pay do not distinguish between adhoc appintment and appointments made in consultation with the Union Public service commission. The diffieculty will, therefore, arise from the fact that the authorities who orginally made the adhoc appointments by granting advance increments may anticipate that Union Public service commission will also recommend higher start on eventual selection, which may not mateialise. It has, therefore, been decided that whenever adhoc appointments are made pending regular recruitment through the Union Public service commission higher starting pay should not be given as this might create vested right and create problems on eventral salection by the Union Public service commission.
