               Sub:- Fixation  of pay on promotion to a post carrying higher duties  and    
                        responsibilities but carrying the same grade pay.
               Ref:-  i) Ministry of Finance O.M.No. 10/02/2011.E.III/A dated 7th                       
                            January, 2013 
                       ii) DOP&T O.M.No. 20020/4/2010 Estt.(D) Dated 13th Sept 2012

                                                                     xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Sir,
                        On behalf of the Central Executive of this Association  I  request your kind intervention and  necessary action on the subject matter, since the JWM and Chargeman-I of Ordnance Factories  who have earned promotion after 1-1-2006 and before 29-08-2008 i.e. before declaration of 6th CPC are getting  one Incremental   financial loss.

                       As it is cleared in the above referred DOP&T’s O.M. No. 20020/4/2010 Estt.(D) dtd 13th Sept 2012, that the status of Chargeman-I and JWM who have earned  promotions after 1/1/2006 and before 29/08/2008 i.e. before declaration of 6th CPC, their promotional benefits will be protected as per the provisions of statutory recruitment rules applicable to the post/grade.  As per the guidelines issued by Ministry of Finance vide O.M.No. 10/02/2011.E.III/A dtd 7th January2013 cited at ref (i) above for fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying higher duties and responsibilities. In para 3 of this O.M specifies that the matter has been  considered and the President is pleased to decide that in case of promotion from one post to another where the promotional post carries the same Grade Pay as the feeder post, the fixation of pay in such cases will be done in the CCS (RP) Rules 2008,provided fixation of pay in such cases was done prior to 1.1.2006(i.e previously) as per method/rule provision adopted for.

                     After implementation  of 6th CPC  the Ordnance Factory Board  has withdrawn their financial Incremental and superiority (seniority) benefits after merger of Chargeman-II,Chargeman-I and  Asstt. Foreman, Jr. Works Manager with backdated effect from 01-01-2006, which is against the statutory rules of promotion existing on that day. So their promotional benefits i.e. financial increment and Seniority will be protected as per the above order.
                                                            
                 We would also like to invite your attention towards the facts that as per 6th CPC  recommendation, where all  the posts in one  or  more pre-revised scales are merged  with a higher pre-revised scale and  given a common replacement  scale/grade pay/pay scale as per higher pre-revised scale, whereas for Chargeman-II, Chargeman-I and AF ,JWM  their pre revised scales are merged in lower pre-revised scale for basic  pay  scale calculation in 6th CPC .As these  posts are distinguishable posts as promotional and feeder posts respectively and they are covered  under the provision of MoF  O.M.No. 169/2/2000-IC dtd 24-11-2000.Though they have assumed higher responsibilities from the date of promotion and they have discharged higher responsibilities  accordingly, but after implementation of merger  as per 6th CPC  recommendations, the financial benefits are withdrawn from the Chargeman-I and JWM who have  earned promotions after 1/1/2006 and before 29-08-2008 i.e. before declaration of 6th CPC ,which is against the provisions of statutory recruitment rules applicable and natural justice.
  
                    It is therefore requested  to give  promotional benefits i.e. financial increment  & Seniority as per the above order to the affected Chargeman-I and JWM’s  who have earned promotions after 1/1/2006 and before 28-09-2008.

Thanking you,
