Subject:- Fixation of pay of probationers under F.R.22-B.
The undersigned is directed to refer to F.R.22.B(1)(b) introduced under this Ministry’s Notification No.F.2(75)-E.III/60 dated 16.1.1961 as amended by Notification No.F.1(37)-E.III/64 dated 20.4.1965 regarding fixation of pay of probationers, which provides that the pay of a Government servant who is appointed as a probationer in another service or cadre shall, on confirmation in the service or post, after the expiry of the period of probation, be fixed in the time scale of the service or post in accordance with the provisions of F.R.22 or 22-C as the case may be.
2. Since a temporary Government servant does not have a lien on any post at the time of completion of probation, it is hereby clarified that, on completion of probation, when such a Government servant is confirmed in the service or post, his pay will not be re-fixed under F.R.22 or F.R.22-C with reference to the pay that he would have drawn in the previous post which he was holding in a temporary capacity but he will continue to draw pay in the scale of pay of the service or post. Similarly in the case of a permanent Government servant holding a higher officiating post at the time of appointment as Probationer, the pay will not be re-fixed with reference to the pay that he would have drawn in the higher officiating post.
3. In so far as the employees of the Indian Audit and Accounts Department are concerned these orders have been issued in consultation with the Comptroller and Auditor General of India.
Under Secretary to the Government of India.
