Subject: Pay fixation of SCS/Non-SCS officers promoted to IAS subsequent to the implementation of 7th CPC recommendations-reg.
In supersession of this Department’s letter of even number dated the 7th April , 2017 on the above mentioned subject, I am directed to say that the initial pay of a promoted officer or an officer appointed by selection as the case may be shall be fixed at the stage of the senior scale next above his actual pay. There is no provision of increment at the stage of initial fixation.
2. Rule 5(6) of IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016 provides for the fixation of pay of a Member of Service on promotion to Selection Grade (Level-13) of Pay Matrix by adding one increment in the Level-12 of Pay Matrix and two additional increments in the Level 13 to which he is promoted. Rule 5(5) of IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016 provides that the pay of a member of the Service in the Senior Time Scale shall , on promotion to the Junior Administrative Grad e be fixed in Level 12 of the Pay Matrix.
3. In respect of fixation of pay of officers who were promoted/Selected in IAS through SCS/Non-SCS respectively in Senior Time Scale/Junior Administrative Grade after 01.01.2016, the initial pay shall be fixed in the respective level of the Senior Scale i.e Level 11,12 or 13 based on the year of allotment in the IAS. However, the pay drawn in the State Civil Services will be protected in the concerned Level. An illustration is as under:
Shri X who is drawing pay at Rs. 48920 (Rs.40220 [pay in the pay band + GP Rs.8700] is promoted/selected to IAS on 04.03.2016. He is allotted 2010 batch. The pay on promotion/selection to IAS would be as under:
|1||Last pay drawn by the officer in the state (as on 04.03.2016)||Rs.48920/-|
|2||Date of promotion in IAS||04.03.2016|
|3||Year of allotment||2010|
|4||Pay fixation in IAS as on 04.03.2016 as per 7th CPC (The officer has the option either to get the pay fixed from the date of promotion or from the date of annual increment)||Rs.48920 X 2.57 = 125725, Next stage available at Level 11 is 126300/-|
|5||Pay fixed in IAS||Rs.126300 at Level 11 in the pay Matrix|
4. The pay of IAS officers who were promoted/selected in IAS through SCS/Non-SCS respectively prior to 01 . 01.2016 will be converted as per 7th CPC on 01.01.2016 and they shall notionally in the Level of Pay Matrix, in accordance with the length of service as per their allotment year, at the stage of the senior scale. On their actual promotion to JAG/Selection Grade, the pay of these officers will then be fixed as per IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016. That is, the officers will be eligible for two additional increments on their actual promotions to Level 12/ Level 13 after completion of 9/13 years of service in IAS respectively. An Illustration is as under:
|Date of appointment in IAS||23.2.2015|
|Year of allotment in IAS||2007|
|Actual Promotion to JAG in IAS as on 01.01.2016||Pay to be re-fixed as under:|

|Pay to be arrived at||As per IAS (Pay) Rules, 2007 after grant of one increment @ 3% pay to be fixed is Rs.47483 in PB-4 with GP 8700|
|Pay as on 23.3.2015||Rs.47483 in PB-4+GP 8700|
|Pay as on 01.01.2016 (as per 7th CPC)||Rs.47483 x 2.57 = 122032|
|Length of Service in IAS in accordance with the allotment year assigned||7 years, as the officer has only 7 sever years of residency in IAS, after protection of his pay, he shall be placed at 122600 in Level 11 of the Pay Matrix.|

5. The provision contained in part (7) of Schedule-I of IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016, which provides that "Notwithstanding anything contained in these rules, the pay of a promoted officer or an officer appointed by selection, as the case may be, shall not at any time exceed the basic pay which he would have drawn as a direct recruit on that date if he had been appointed to the Indian Administrative Service on the date on which he was appointed to the State Civil Service or in a Gazetted post in the non-State Civil Service, after attaining the age of twenty five years, as the case may be" shall be adhered to.
6. This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
