Pay Level – 1
The concept of separate grade pay has been done away with and the grade pay at all levels has been subsumed into the pay matrix.
The new pay matrix incorporates all these features: subsuming the grade pay, the rationalized matrix presents the whole universe of pay levels in one simple chart. The levels have been rationalized too, displaying a logical pay progression. Employees would be able to see their pay level, where they fit in and how they are likely to progress over their career span.
The rationalization of pay levels has been done keeping this minimum pay as the base for all calculations. It has been recommended that the minimum pay at each level will be the entry pay for direct recruits for those levels. Each level has been placed equidistantly. The various stages within a level moves upwards at the rate of 3 percent per annum. Owing to this rationalization, the quantum of increase in pay on promotion, either on regular basis or through the MACP, is likely to be substantial. This design will make the existing remuneration pattern in the government more attractive.
