Sub: Admissibility of two additional increments (non-absorbable) to the Nursing staff possessing B.Sc. Degree after fixation of pay in newly revised pay scales w.e.f. 01.01.96.
The Nursing staff holding B.Sc. degree as additional qualification, appointed before 01.01.96, were extended the benefit of two advance increments in terms of IREM (Vol.1) 1989 edition, para 166, sub-para (iii). The above scheme has been reviewed by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in consultation with the Department of Personnel and Training and it has been decided to continue the scheme. The matter regarding treatment of these increments had been under examination in Board’s office in consultation with Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
2. It has now been decided that on electing to come over to revised scales under V CPC, the pay of the Nursing staff who were enjoying the benefit of upto two advance increments in the IV CPC pay scale as on 01.01.1996 may be fixed in the revised pay scale with reference to the pay in the pre revised scale excluding the quantum of two advance increments enjoyed by them. After the pay is fixed in the revised scale (V CPC), two additional increments at the revised rate (non-absorbable) may be granted in the revised scale.
3. The additional increments (non-absorbable) are not to be treated as pay for the purpose of allowances. However, past cases decided otherwise need not be reopened for the purpose of recovery, although pay in all cases have to be fixed and regulated as indicated above.
4. This issues with the concurrence of Finance Directorate of Railway Board.
