Subject: Grant of four advance increments to Jr. Accountants/ Auditors of Central Civil Accounts Service on passing Departmental Confirmatory Test during the period 01/01/1973 to 31/05/1981.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this office O.M. No.A.11019/20/Misc./
2009/MF.CGA(A)/NG/Vol.111/144 dated 22.07.2013 and O.M. of even No.328 dated 21.10.2013 on the subject cited above arid to state that departmentalized accounting organization in Ministries/ Departments have brought to the notice of this office that anomalies in pay have arisen in some cases in the cadre of Jr. Accountant/ Sr. Accountant as a result of passing the Departmental Confirmatory Examination by a senior before 01.01.1973 and a junior after 01.01.1973.
The matter has been examined in this office and observed that such type of anomalies have not arisen due to direct application of FR 22-C (now FR 22(0 (a) (1)). In such cases, anomaly has arisen due to grant of increment at a higher rate to the junior. In this connection, attention is invited to various orders issued by GOI relating to stepping of pay issued right from 04.02.1966, these orders provide that anomaly should be as a result of application of FR 22-C (now FR 22(I) (a)
(1)) and in case when a junior is drawing higher pay than a senior by virtue of grant of advance increment, no benefit of stepping up of pay will be allowed to the senior officer.
In view of position as explained above, it is clarified that anomalies in pay which arisen in the Jr. Accountant/ Sr. Accountant cadre as a result of passing Departmental Confirmatory Examination by a senior before 01.01.1973 and junior after 01.01.1973 are not admissible/ rectifiable.
