Thiru K.SHANMUGAM, I.A.S., Principal Secretary to Government.

Sir,

Sub: Tamil Nadu Revised Scales of Pay Rules, 2009 – Grant of notional increment to Government Servants who retires on superannuation on the preceding day of increment due date – Further clarification – Regarding.

Ref: 1)G.O.Ms.No.234, Finance (PC) Department, dated:01.06.2009.

2) G.O.Ms.No.311, Finance (CMPC) Department,dated:31.12.2014.

3) Government Letter No.5085/CMPC/2015-1,dated:01.06.2015.

*****

In the Government Order second cited, orders were issued to the effect that the Government servant, whose increment falls due on the day following superannuation, on completion of one full year of service which are countable for increment under Fundamental Rule 26, be sanctioned with one notional increment at the rate as described under Rule 6 of the Tamil Nadu Revised Scales of Pay Rules, 2009 purely for the purpose of pensionary benefits and not for any other purposes. The above concession of sanction of notional increment shall take prospective effect from the date of issue of the order (i.e.) 31.12.2014.

2) While implementing the above Government Orders, doubts have been raised in the following cases:-

(i) Entitlement for the benefit of notional increment in the case of employees who retired prior to 31—12—2014, completed one full year of service and increment due falls on the date of following superannuation.

(ii) Entitlement for the benefit of notional increment in cases of re-employment, especially re-employment of teachers beyond the date of superannuation till the end of academic year.

3) In this connection, I am to clarify that:-

(i) the benefit of notional increment sanctioned in the Government Order second cited shall take prospective effect from the date of issue of the order i.e. 31—12—2014 only and the employees whose increment falls due on completing one year of service on the day following superannuation and retired prior to 31—12—2014 are not entitled for the benefit of sanction of notional increment for the purpose of pensionary benefits, and

(ii) The period of re-employment continuously after superannuation for a specific period, till the end of academic year in case of teachers, is not eligible for the benefit of notional increment.

4) All the Departments of Secretariat / Heads of Departments are requested to follow the above instructions scrupulously.

Yours faithfully

for Principal Secretary to Government

  1. The decision of the Tamilnadu Govt is not only prudential & logically justified but also a landmark in the history of judicial pronouncements because it shows that justice is not Only done but it seems to everyone that it has been done. Since it is the cardinal principle of justice & the same should be followed by all justice giving agencies of this country.
