Shri Hot Chand,
Under Secretary to the Govt. of India.
The Accountant General,
Subject:-Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 1960 –initial fixation of pay.
I am directed to refer to your letter No.DA.I-B/Gr.II/1289 dated the 27th February, 1961, on the subject mentioned above and to say that in respect of persons drawing pay at the stage of Rs.96/- in the existing scale of Rs.75-3-105 on 1.7.1959, their pay in the revised scale of Rws.125-3-131-4-155, will be fixed in accordance with the method indicated in para 4 of your letter, viz, the pay will be fixed at the stage of Rs.147/-plus personal pay of Rs.4/-. This personal pay will not be treated as pay for purposes of grant of dearness allowance. The total revised emoluments will thus be Rs.161 (Rs.147 pay + Rs.4 personal pay to be absorbed in future increases of pay + Rs.10 dearness allowance.
2.The proforma has been prescribed to facilitate calculation of pay on the revised scales in the normal type of cases, and it may be suitably modified if the ‘revised’ pay in column 16 of the proforma does not come to that admissible under the provisions of the Central Civil Service (Revised Pay) Rules, 1960.
Under Secretary to the Govt. of India.
Copy of letter No.DA.I-B/Gr. II 1289
dated the 27th Feb. 1961
from the Accountant General,Mysore forwarded to the Deputy Secretary to the Government of India,Ministry of Finance(Department of Expenditure),New Delhi.
Subject:-Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules 1960 fixation of Pay.
I would invite a reference to the provisions of note 1 below Rule 10(2) of the Central
Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rule 1960 according to which the initial pay/shall be fixed at the highest stage in the revised scale at which the revised emoluments payable do not exceed the present emoluments by more than the ceiling limits and the difference between the present emoluments plus the ceiling and the revised emoluments shall be allowed as personal pay, in cases where the revised emoluments at a stage arrived at under Rule 10 (1) ibid exceed the present emoluments by more than the prescribed ceiling limits. A proforma has also been prescribed for arriving at the initial pay in the new scale vide Ministry of Finance, 0.M. No.F.12(6)-Est/(Spl)/60 dated 26.8.1960.
2. A Junior Technical Assistant attached to the office of the Plant Protection Officer, Dharwar who was drawing any at Rs.96/- in the existing scale of Rs.75-3-105 has opted to the Revised Scale of Rs.125-3-131-4-155. According to note1, below Rule 10(2) referred to above, the pay would require pay of Rs.4/- to be absorbed in future increases in pay. If the pay of the Government servant is so fixed, dearness allowance at the enhanced rate of Rs.20/- will have to be allowed since pay includes personal pay for purposes of regulating dearness allowance (vide paragraph (i) of the Governement of India, Ministry of Finance O.M. No.F.2(43)E.II(5)/47 dated 11th Sept, 1948 in which case the ceiling limit prescribed in Rule 10(2)(ii) will be exceeded.
3. If however, the pay is fixed on eh lines indicated in the proforma attached to O.M. dated 26th August, 1960 referred to at para I above, the pay will have to be fixed at Rs.139/- plus a personal pay of Rs.2/- vide Annexure to this letter. If the pay is fixed at Rs.141/- the Dearness Allowance is only Rs.10/-. The total emoluments in such a case fall short of the maximum amount of Rs.161/- permissible. It can thus be seen that the latter fixation is at variance with that calculated according to note I under Rule 10(2) quoted above.
4. As the fixation of pay has to be done strictly in conformity with the provisions of Rule 10 of the rules under reference, it is proposed to admit the pay of the Government servant at Rs.147/- in the revised scale of Rs.125-3-131-4-155 with a personal pay of Rs.4/-. With a view to restricting the difference between the existing and the revised emoluments to the prescribed ceiling limits, it may also be necessary to ignore the personal pay of Rs.4/- for purposes of grant of the Dearness Allowance. It may kindly be intimated whether the fixation in the manner indicated herein will be in order.
