The Chief Post Master General,
Sub: - Fixation of pay on promotion to a post carrying higher duties & responsibilities but carrying same grade pay.
I would like to draw your kind attention to the subject as noted above. As per Ministry of Finance O.M no. 10/02/2011-E.III/A dated 07/01/2013(copy enclosed) in cases 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 manner as prescribed in Rule 13(i) of the CCS (RP) Rules,2008, provided fixation of pay in such cases was done prior to 01.01.2006 in terms of Ministry’s aforesaid OM no. 169/2/2000-IC dated 24.11.2000. The Rule provides for fixation of pay by way of addition of one increment equal to 3% of the sum of the pay in the pay band and the existing grade pay(rounded off to the next multiple of 10)to the existing pay in the pay band and then fixing the pay in the promotional post. But surprisingly no Divisions in this Circle except Park St H.O under Central Kolkata Division has been following this guideline of Ministry of Finance.
Therefore, this union urges upon you to intervene in this matter personally, so that Post Master Grade officials may get financial benefit at earliest.
A line in reply in this matter will be appreciated.
