Fixation of Pay on Promotion

Printer-friendly version
  • 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)

  • The increment amount will be added to the existing pay in the pay band. The Grade pay corresponding to the promotion post will be added to the pay in the pay band. If the pay in the pay band after adding the increment is less than the minimum of the higher pay band to which promotion is taking place, pay in the pay band will be stepped to such minimum.

  • Fixation of pay on promotion under CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008, an employee has been promoted or upgraded to higher grade pay (MACP) have to submit an option form within one month.  (Ref 1& 2) A Railway Servant may give a revised option for fixation within one month from the date of orders of any change of rules or some unforeseen developments. (Ref 4)

  • Employee has an option to get his pay fixed in the higher post either from the date of his promotion, or from date of his next increment.  (Ref 1)

  • In case the railway servant opts to get his pay fixed from his date of next increment, then , on the date of  promotion, pay in the pay band shall continue unchanged, but the grade pay of the higher post will be granted.  Further refixation will be done on the date of his next increment i.e. 1st July.  On that day, he will be granted two increments; one annual increment and the second on account of promotion.  While computing these two increments, basic pay prior to the date of promotion shall be taken into account.  To illustrate, if the basic pay prior to the date of promotion was Rs.100, first increment would be computed on Rs.100 and the second on Rs.103.   (Ref 3)

  • In case the railway servant opts to get his pay fixed in the higher grade form the date of his promotion, he shall get his first increment in the higher grade on the next 1st July if he was promoted between 2nd July and 1st January.  However, if he was promoted between 2nd January and 30th June of a particular year, he shall get his increment on 1st July of next year.  (Ref 3)

  • Those who get their promotion between 2nd Jan and 30th June will get the additional benefit of one annual increment in the ACP/Promotion year itself, if they opt to defer their pay fixation for promotion to next grade to 1st July of the year at the loss of fixation benefit from promotion month to July of that year. This onetime loss will be very minimal while comparing long term benefit we get out of addition of one more increment in the year. Anyway, this onetime loss has also been minimized to the extent possible as the grade pay gets revised on the date of ACP/Promotion though the employee defer increment to July. (Ref 2)

The benefit of promotional pay will be allowed in the following cases of promotion even though the promotional post is with the same Grade Pay from 1.1.2006 onwards: (Ref 5)

You have to ask hime the reason for not giving increment. You must have already got one increment. Understand that running staff are not only deprived of any privilages that other employees are getting, but also they are given so many privilages that other employees are not getting due to their peculiar nature of duties.
