FEEDER CADRE AND PROMOTIONAL CADRE DRAWING SAME GRADE PAY – 3% INCREMENT FIXATION



We are receiving a number of queries regarding the fixation of 
pay as per DOP&T OM No. 10/02/2011-E III/A dated 07.01.2013. 
The order says that the pay of Government employees on promotion 
to a post carrying higher duties and responsibilities but carrying same 
grade pay is to be fixed by way of addition of one increment of 3% of 
the sum of pay band of the existing grade pay. The order further states 
that it is applicable only when the grade pay of the feeder cadre and 
promotional cadre becomes the same consequent on merger of pay 
scales by the Fifth Pay Commission. (Placed in the identical revised 
pay scales based on the recommendations of the 5th Central Pay 
Commission).

As the feeder cadre for LSG is PA (and not TBOP/BCR or MACP-I) for HSG-II is LSG 
(not TBOP/BCR or MACP-II) and for HSG-I is HSG-II (not MACP III) the benefit of 
the above order is not applicable to us. Further in the order there is a clause that 
the order is applicable “provided fixation of pay in such cases was done prior to 
01.01.2006 in terms of OM No. 169/2/2000-IC dated 24.11.2000” (ie as per 
orders issued on implementations of 5th CPC recommendations). In short the 
benefit of the 07.01.2013 order is not applicable for PA, Postmen & 
MTS cadre of Department of Posts.
