When a senior employee draws lesser pay than his junior promoted after him his pay maybe stepped up to the extent of pay of his junior from the date of promotion of junior subject to following conditions.
Junior and Senior belongs to the same cadre and promotion posts are identical and in the same cadre.
Scales of pay of lower and higher posts are identical.
Anomaly is a direct result of application of rules.
Junior was not drawing more pay than Senior in the lower post.
Sixth pay commission has recommended entry pay for employees directly recruited to different posts based on Grade pay of the post. This will apply only to staff posted on or after 1.1.2006.
Hence pay of those Railway servants who were already in service on 1.1.2006 can not be fixed with reference to the minimum entry pay prescribed for those who joined the Railways as direct recruits on or after 1.1.2006.
