Subject :- Application of F.R.22-C to State Government servants on appointment to higher posts in the Government of India.
The undersigned is directed to say that doubts have been raised as to whether F.R.22-C is applicable to State Government servants on appointment to higher posts under the Government of India and whether for purpose of fixation of pay of a State Government servant on appointment under the Government of India, the dearness allowance admissible under the State Government may be included in basic pay. The President is pleased to decide that :-
i)When a State Government servant is appointed to a post under the Central Govt. and the post carries duties or responsibilities of greater importance than those attaching to the post held by him under the State Government, the initial pay of the official in the post may be fixed under F.R. 22-C
ii)Dearness allowance, if any, admissible under the State Government may be treated as basic pay for the purpose of fixation of pay in the post under the Government of India subject to the following conditions :-
(a)The maximum amount of D.A. to be taken into account will be Rs.100/- or the actual amount of D.A. that will be taken into account by the State Govt. concerned for fixation of pay in their revised scales, if revision has taken place whichever is less.
(b)From the basic pay so arrived at, the dearness allowance at the revised rates admissible according to the Central Govt. rules on the pay due in the State should be deducted.
Note :- For assenssing the relative degrees of responsibility of the posts under the State government and Central Government all relevant factors including the duties attached to the posts, etc. besides the scales of pay attached to the posts, will be taken into consideration. In a large majority of cases, such assessment should be easy to make. Doubtful cases may be referred to the Ministry of Finance as hereto-fore under Government of India’s Decision No.2 and Auditor General’s decision No.2 below F.R.22.
