Fixation of Pay

Fixation of Pay on Promotion

  • In the case of promotion from one grade pay to another in the revised pay structure, one increment equal to 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the existing grade pay will be computed and rounded off to the next multiple of 10. (Ref 2)

  • In the case of calculation of increments under the revised pay structure, paise should be ignored, but any amount of a rupee or more should be rounded off to next multiple of 10. (Ref 4)

History of Central Pay Commissions

  • Government of India have set up six pay commissions at regular intervals to review and recommend wage structure for all civil and military divisions including Railways.
  • These Pay commissions examine various issues such as pay  and allowances, retirement  benefits, conditions of service. promotion policies. Etc,  and  submit recommendations.
  • As Fifth Pay Commission observed “ Pay Commission is a peculiarly Indian institution”.

Gross and Net Salary of Some Popular categories of Railway Jobs

Approximate Gross and Net Salary of Some Popular categories of Railway Jobs  after the implementation of 6 th Central Pay commission for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006.

Please keep in mind that the exact salary can be different from this as it depends on many conditions. Some of the factors that you have to keep in mind while reading the table ::

  • The current Rate of DA is 80% from Jan 2013 and it changes every six months. 
  • Salary after 1 year – this will be the salary on 1st July after completion of training period (with one annual increment).  As a rule of thumb it is assumed that the DA will go up by 12% in one year for the calculation.
  • During training no allowances except DA is paid.
  • HRA is calculated for ordinary cities(10%). It can be 20% or 30% depending on the city. It is same for Transport Allowance.

  • There are other allowances like TA which depends on your post.
