Bunching of Pay Recommended by CPSE 3rd Pay Revision Committee
1. There will no instances of bunching at the starting point of revised pay-scale in the CPSEs granting full fitment benefit of 15%, as all the existing pay ranges will find its place within the corresponding new pay scales.
2. In a situation where a lower fitment benefit (i.e. 10% or 5%) is granted by a CPSE due to affordability constraints, there will bunching at different grades due to revised Basic Pay falling short of reaching starting point of revised pay scale. In cases of such CPSEs, in order to avoid bunching in the concerned revised pay-scale, either the difference between the ‘pre-revised Basic Pay’ and the ‘minimum of the pre-revised pay scale’ added to the starting point of revised pay-scale or the revised Basic Pay as arrived after applying the fitment benefit (i.e. 10% or 5% of BP & DA), whichever is higher, shall be the revised Basic Pay.
