Sub: 6th Central Pay – CCS (Revised Pay) Rules 2008 - Second Meeting of the National Anomaly
Committee to be held on 27th March 2010 at New Delhi – Immediate Intervention of Indian
National Trade Union Congress to implement the decisions of Government of India – Reg.

Respected Sir,

I would like to bring to your kind notice that the Ministry of Personnel, Public Grievances &
Pensions, Department of Personnel & Training, (JCA Section), New Delhi vide letter No.
No.11/2/2008-JCA dated 4.3.2010 stated that the second Meeting of National Anomaly Committee
consequent upon the implementation of 6th pay commission report will be held under the
Chairmanship of Secretary (P) at 10.30 A.M. on Saturday, the 27th March, 2010 in Room No. 119,
North Block, New Delhi.

In this context, the intervention of Indian National Trade Union Congress is very much
necessary in the proposed meeting in order to ensure that the government of India decisions is
implemented in its true spirit. In the last meeting also, no concrete decision was taken to implement
the Government orders. The majority of the staff side attending the meeting are presenting matters
with hidden agenda and that too they are retired hands and without proper mandate from the
employees side. They wanted to bring an imaginary colour in this aspect campaigning that the
government is against the welfare of the employees putting hurdles in the meeting raising irrelevant
questions. For example, though the government of India issued orders viz. Central Civil Service
(Revised Pay) Rules, 2008 after accepting the pay commissions report and which was also
published in the gazette, these so called people are intervening in the official matters through their
own members and interpreting the decisions of the government even issuing unnecessary
clarifications.

These kind of attempts of the so called people may please be resisted in the proposed meetings
and ensure that all the Government of India offices throughout the country implements the following
orders already issued by the government vide CCS(R.P)Rules, 2008.

1
1. Granting of higher replacement scales.

The OM No.1/1/2008-IC dated 13th September, 2008 vide page No.4 under clarification 6 (i)
states where all posts in one or more pre-revised scales are merged with a higher pre-revised scale
and given a common replacement scale/grade pay, the suitability of the incumbents need not to be
assessed for granting them the higher replacement scale. The same clarification 6 (ii) also states in
the case of upgradations recommended by the pay commissions i.e., where all posts in a particular
grade have been granted a higher replacement pay scale/grade, the suitability of the incumbents
need not be assessed for granting them the higher replacement scale/grade pay. In cases of merger
and upgradation of posts of pre-revised pay scales, fixation of pay will be done as prescribed in Note
2A of Rule 7(1) in the manner indicated in illustration 4A and not as per fitment table of the existing
scale.

This is in order to protect the service of seniors with reference to juniors. But the fixations
were done only based on the existing scale ignoring the government decision of under Note 2A and
illustration 4A. In spite of reiterating this rule vide OM F.No.1/1/2008-iC dated 13th October,2008 that
fixation will be done as per Note 2A below Rule 7 of the CCS(RP)Rules 2008 in the manner
prescribed in accordance with clause (A) (i) and (ii) of Rule 7(1), the same has not been
implemented due to the tactics of few officers/opposition group.
2. Bunching benefits.
The clause under Rule 7(1)(A)(ii) of CCS(RP)Rules2008 i.e., age 35 states as “provided further
that :- where, in the fixation of pay, the pay of government servants drawing pay at two or more
consecutive stages in an existing scale gets bunched, that is to say, gets fixed in the revised pay
structure at the same stage in the pay band, then, for every two stages so bunched, benefit of one
increment shall be given so as to avoid bunching of more than two stages in the revised running pay
bands. So for every two stages in the existing scale, additional one increment each will be added.
But some of the officials in the Ministries/opposition group are interpreting the same and not
extending the benefits out of illustration 4A.
3. Parity between field office and Secretariat.

The pay commission vide report 3.1.14 (i.e., parity between field offices and Secretariat ) and the
same was accepted by government and issued orders vide item No. ii of Section 1 of Part B of the
First Schedule of CCS(R.P)Rules, 2008 merging “three” scales i.e., 5000-8000, 5500-9000 and
6500-10,5000 and upgrading to 7450-11,500, this has been extended only to certain grades of the
pre-revised 5500-9000(as on 1.1.2006) working in the Secretariat which is against the decision of
the government by interpreting the decisions of the government through a OM dated 16.11.2009
soon after the issue common upgradation order available vide OM dated 13.11.2009. The R.T.I
reply dated received vide U.O.No.22/01/2010-IC dated 25.1.2010 from S. D. Sharma under
Secretary (IC-II) from the Ministry of Finance also states that the government already implemented
the parity suggested by CPC vide report 3.1.14. But this is not being implemented by the so called
members applying hidden agenda to tarnish the government’s decision.
4. Granted higher separate scale (within 9 months after implementation of 6th CPC) without
decision from government in the Revised pay rules.
Though the 6th CPC) was implemented and pay revised from 1.1.2006 corresponding to the existing
pay as on 1.1.2006, some of the Ministries permitted to opt refixation from 15.9.2006 ignoring the
suggestion of the pay commission by allowing a separate scale in order to demand undue
advantage later which should not be allowed. Once pay commission report is implemented from a
particular date, the order is to be implemented from the effective date and further hike if any should
only be thought of and allowed only in the next 7th CPC. So the higher scale granted from
15.9.2006 to the skeleton group is to be withdrawn and all those who were in the pre-revised 5500-
9000 as on 1.1.2006 may be replaced by 7450-11,500 with proper fixation/bunching and the
promotions/new appointment taken place on or after 1.1.2006 also be granted the scale as per rule.

5. Discrimination of Group B Officers.
The Section Officers in the CSS also were drawing 6500-10,500 on 1.1.2006 at par with the Group B
Officers in the field offices. When the Government upgraded the scale of Section Officers of CSS to
7500-12,000 with GP4800 and NFS 5400 vide R.P.Rules, there was no mention about such revision
for similar categories in the field offices. But one by one different Ministries started merging pre
6500 and 7450 and upgraded to 7500 with GP 4800. So some of the field offices including the
Section Officers/PS filed cases and the Principal bench vide OA.164/2009 ordered to give fixation in
pre-7500-12,000 with GP4800 and NFS 5400. Accordingly they have claimed the arrears. So the
pre-6500-10,500 in the field offices must also be given 7500-12,000 with fixation, bunching and
stepping up provision.

6. Stepping up of Seniors.

The clause under Note-10 below Rule 7(1)(D) of CCS(RP)Rules2008 i.e., page 38 states stepping
up should be given to the seniors with effect from the date of promotion of the junior Government
servant subject to condition that both the junior and the senior government servants should belong
to the same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted should be identical in the same
cadre. For example the pay of the juniors (i.e., UDCs promoted as Assistants after 1.1.2006 were
fixed with the minimum of 7450-11,500 (as 7450x1.86+4600) with effect from their date of
promotion. Hence the seniors in the same post also eligible for stepping up (i.e., 7450x1.86+4600)
from the date of promotion. The same has been done by many offices, but it is not being extended to
all employees through out the country as per the decisions of the government because of the same
purposeful intention of the so called group.

7. Treating of Common Categories.

As per report in Para 3.8.1, the Common categories of staff are those categories that are engaged in
similar functions spread across various Ministries/departments /organizations of the Central
Government. These categories are not limited to any specific ministry of department and, therefore,
any decision taken for them impacts more than one Ministry/department/organization. But this has
been extended only to few offices which are to be extended to all offices throughout the country.

8. Seniors are paid less than juniors by ignoring government decisions.

All scales in pre-revised scales are either replaced with higher replacement scale/upgraded scale or
corresponding scale already granted w.e.f 1.1.2006 with proper fixations, bunching and stepping up
as per rules. Because of the non-implementation of above fixation at the minimum of the pre-revised
higher scale, bunching and stepping up, the seniors are drawing less salary than the junior most in
many departments which is the first time in India and throughout the world.

The above actions are to be ensured in the proposed meeting, since the
government has already approved and orders already issued failing which there is every
possibility of believing the campaign of opposition group.

In this context, it is also requested that necessary corrective measures may


please be taken on the following Anomalies.

A. ACP and MACP.

Among the same post, there is a vast difference in the grade pay scale granted between ACP and
MACP and lot of discrimination are occurred. When the scheme modified for giving of assurance for
carrier, it should not be taking away the benefit already given to the same cadres. So it is requested
to revive the ACP instead of MACP.

3
B. Uniform Multiplying factor.

At present different Multiplying factors are adopted at the rate of 1.86 for the scales of S-7 to S-23
(5th CPC) and all the remaining 5th CPC scales were granted factors ranging from 1.89 to 3.37 and
the medium class officials are affected a lot which also needs immediate attention. It is suggested
that a common multiplying factor be adopted for all. Otherwise the present position may please be
raised to 2.62 at least up to PB-3

C. Common formula of increment for all.

The variable increment stipulated under Rule 9 be reviewed and extended 4% to all
categories from PB-1 onwards without restricting to the 20% of the total strength.

D.Status of Clerical staff (LDC/UDC/HEAD CLERK).

The Pay Commission vide Para 3.1.15 suggested separate recruitment to the Ministerial cadres in
the field offices with a view to fill up all future recruitments in the pay scale of Rs.6500-10,500
corresponding to the revised pay band PB-2 along with grade pay of Rs.4200 for every field office
and they be made as Executive Assistant . And for Direct recruitment, the commission suggested
the candidates should possess minimum qualification of a Graduate degree and one year diploma in
Computers.

The present posts in the field offices are Lower Division Clerk, Upper Division Clerk and Head
Clerk. Most of them are Postgraduates with Diploma in computers/PGDCA. At present the LDC
(pre-revised 3050-4590), UDC (pre-revised 4000-6000) and Head clerk (pre-4500-7000) and given
Grade 1900, 2400 and 2800 respectively. The major work in the field offices are dealt by these
categories. Whereas the pay commission has suggested Grade pay of RS.4200 for future Executive
Assistants with lesser qualification (graduation +one year diploma only)

Further, the clerical staffs were demoralized by merging with the 4th standard/illiterates Group D
employees in PB-1 without any suggestion from pay commission. Though the pay commission
suggested only grade pay of 1300 alone to the Group D initially, the government raised the GP to
1800/1900. Whereas no increase has been made to the Clerical staff in the Grade pay and made in
a very sorrowful condition by merging with these Postgraduate clerical staff with illiterates/4th
Standard people. It is imperative to reconsider their grade pay/designation keeping in view of their
qualification/nature of work as under:

1. All the existing LDCs/UDCs/Head Clerks may be elevated to Executive Assistants with effect from
1.1.2006 with grade pay of Rs.4200/- as a one time measure in the field offices by restructuring the
posts as directed by Ministry of Finance vie OM No.AB.14017/61/2008-Estt(RR) dated 24th
March,2009 in a time bound way.

2.Till such time all the above three pre revised (3050, 4000, and 4500) be merged with a separate
Pay Band (+PB-1) and grand them grade pay of Rs.2800 w.e.f. 1.1.2006

3. All the existing Group D be put together in a separate Pay Band (-PB-1) and continue to give
them Grade pay of Rs.1800/1900.

E- Research Institutions in INDIA, (CSIR, ICMR, ICAR, DRDO and other S&T departments

Professors in the Scientifics institutions are treated at par with the teachers of the Diploma
holders in Polytechnics this needs attention of the government. The following suggestions
are made:

4
1. The PB-3 after 3 years be placed in PB-4.

2. The 5th CPC pre-revised scale 12000-18000 be placed in PB-4 or reduce the starting
Scales from Rs. 37400/= into 28000 keeping in view of the less multiplying factor(1.86)
up to pre-revised S-3 scale.

3. The variable increment stipulated under Rule 9 be reviewed and extended 4% to all categories
without restricting to 20% of the total strength.

4. The Research staff (Scientific and Technical) includes Group IV Qualifications like, Medical,
Engineering, computer science, bio informatics; humanities (MBA), social- sciences, life science,
basic sciences, and library science etc. were appointed on following grades.

A. RGP- 6600 for Jr. Scientist/Jr. Technical Officer, (PB-3)

B. RGP- 7600 for Sc. /TO, (PB-3)

C. RGP- 8900 for Sr. Sc. / TO, (PB-4)

D. RGP- 10,000 for Asst. Directors/principal scientist/TO (PB-4)

The Scientific Administrators/ Executive Scientist, should be placed in higher grades at par with
GP12000 and HAG as they are responsible for high quality of innovations/research and guidance as
eminent research scientists, at the level of Dy. Director and Directors of labs,

# The above concepts is generated with a view that in 6th CPC, there was a provision for
recommendation of separate pay scales and benefits for research cadre in India. Therefore resulted
grade pay are suggested only those, were recommended by 6th CPC.

It is, therefore, requested to kindly consider our grievances/anomalies and most of them are
already approved, but not implemented. Hence, we humbly request you Sir, to kindly intervene in the
matter and direct the concerned to take immediate action for which the entire Central Government
Employees will be very much obliged to the Government.

Yours respectfully,

(D.D. MISTRY)
