FINANCE (Pay Cell) DEPARTMENT G.O.Ms.No.237 Dated: 22.07.2013
1. G.O.Ms.No.234, Finance (Pay Cell) Department, dated: 1-6-2009.
2. G.O.Ms.No.123, Finance (Pay Cell) Department, dated: 10-4-2012
Grade / Special Grade on or after 01—01—2006 shall be fixed on the date of award of Selection Grade / Special Grade by granting the benefit of one increment equal to three per cent of the basic pay including grade payin the same Pay Band and Grade Pay in the revised scale of pay.
2) Several Associations have represented before the Pay Grievance Redressal Cell to revive the scheme of separate scales of pay to Selection Grade / Special Grade holders as in the previous Pay Commission periods as there are no promotional chances for several posts and that as the employees awarded Selection Grade / Special Grade between 01.01.2006 and 31.05.2009 alone have been given the concession to opt to come over to revised scale of pay on the date of award of Selection Grade / Special Grade by foregoing the arrears to accrue the benefit of higher scales of pay consequent on the revision of the scale of pay of the respective Ordinary Grade post and thereby requested to rectify the anomaly in the total emoluments between those awarded Selection Grade / Special Grade prior to and after 31.05.2009. The Pay Grievance Redressal Cell constituted in the Government Order second read above did not favor granting the Pay Band and Grade Pay of the promotion post for Selection Grade / Special Grade since this would give uneven benefit to employees existing in the same pay scale in different departments with different hierarchical patterns. However, the Pay Grievance Redressal Committee, considering the longstanding service rendered by the employees and with the intention to recognize their service properly has recommended to grant an additional increment benefit (over and above the one increment already allowed) equivalent to 3% + 3% of basic pay (Pay + Grade pay) for award of Selection Grade / Special Grade in the revised scale of pay.
4) The above orders shall take notional effect from 01.01.2006 with monetary benefit from 01.04.2013.
