1. References have been received from some of the Railways seeking clarification regarding computation of the period of one year for which pay was drawn at the maximum of the pre-revised scale towards admissibility of additional increment under proviso to Rule 10 of Railway Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008.
2. The matter has been examined and it is clarified that the increment in question will be admissible to all those employees who were stagnating at the maximum of their pay scale for more than one year as on 01.01.2006 including those who were in receipt of stagnation increment(s). It is also clarified that the one year period is to be reckoned w.e.f. the date of drawal of pay at the maximum of scale and not from the date of drawal of stagnation increment.
3. This issues with the concurrence of the Finance Directorate of the Ministry of Railways.
