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
ii) DOP&T O.M.No. 20020/4/2010 Estt.(D) Dated 13th Sept 2012
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After implementation of 6th CPC the Ordnance Factory Board has withdrawn their financial Incremental and superiority (seniority) benefits after merger of Chargeman-II,Chargeman-I and Asstt.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.
