# Annual Increment Anomaly – Comparative Tables of Discrepancy in Increment in Pay Matrix

## Annual Increment Anomaly – Comparative Tables of Discrepancy in Increment in Pay Matrix

The Loss and gain in Annual Increment with Actual and Cumulative Increase by 3% from Pay Matrix is prepared based on anomaly Point raised by Confederation of central government Employees .

Everybody thought that the Pay Matrix evolved by 7th Pay Commission would be a flaw less in Fixing Pay in Revised scale. However it is right observation because it doesn’t need any calculation to revise pay or fixing pay on promotion. Further there is no need of any calculation for granting of annual Increment. The next higher cell in that particular Level will be fixed as Pay with annual Increment.

The issue now is raised by the Confedeartion that when we calculate three percent for adding to the existing basic pay for granting Annual Increment, some cases it is observed that the Matrix pay is lesser than three percent.

The Confederaion further stated that if the amount of Increment is Less than three percent , cumulatively it will affect the Benefit of fixation of Pay on Promotion also.

So we calculated three percent of each cell in pay matrix in Level wise and put in the table to compare it with exisiting Pay Matrix.

Further we observed that , if one cell in the Level is less than three percent hike, then it will affect or imapct the remaining Cells of that Level. So we here have calculated the three percent hike cumulatively from the first cell and prepared a Comparitive Table to know the differance beteen Existing Matrix Pay and Three percent Increase to each existing cell and with 3% cumulative increase from First cell .

for example,

Comparison with Existing Cell to 3% Increase and Cumulative Increase from 1st cell

In Level 2 Cell Number 18 is 24500

After Adding 3% to 24500, it becomes 25240

but in Pay matrix in Level 2, the next cell to 24500 is 25200. It is Rs.40 less than actul 3% Increase. It should be increased to 25240.

If it is calculated 3% cumulatively from 1st Cell, it will be Rs.25260. So the loss is Rs.60 on annual Increment.

Let us hope that the issue raised by the Confederation will be addressed by Anomaly Committee.
