Pay Anomaly in respect of Maj Generals and Lt Generals promoted before 01-01-2016
1. Consequent upon implementation of 7th Pay Commission Orders, Maj Generals promoted after 01/01/2016 are drawing more pay than the officers in the same Corps, who were promoted as Maj Generals prior to 01/01/2016. Hence stepping up of pay of Maj Generals promoted prior to 01/01/2016 has been carried out, at par with the pay from the date of promotion of Maj General of that Corps, promoted after 01/01/2016 based on seniority list received from ADGPS .
