A question has been raised as to how the pay of a Government servant officiating in a higher posts should be fixed on a reversion to a lower post in which he would have officiated on the date from which he elects the prescribed scale but for his officiating appointment to the higher post. The Governor General is pleased to decide that in such a case, the officiating pay of a Government servant should on reversion to the lower post be refixed under the Central Civil Services (Revision of Pay) Rules, 1947, in that post from the date from which he elected the new scales of pay. The service rendered in the higher post will count towards fixation of pay in the lower post to the extent the appointing authority certifies that the individual concerned would have continued to officiate in the lower post but for his officiating appointment in the higher post.
The above procedure will apply mutatis mutandis to persons holding temporary posts in a substantive capacity.
Deputy Secretary to the Government of India.
