# Removal of Anomaly in Pay Matrix: NCJCM Agenda Item No.5 to NAC

## Removal of Anomaly in Pay Matrix: NCJCM Agenda Item No.5 to NAC

The Pay of officials drawing different Grade Pay is fixed in the same stage in different pay level of 7th CPC Pay Matrix.

Example

The above table is depicting the pay fixation as per the Pay Matrix. The following anomalies may be noted.

a) Revised Pay of an employee who has drawn 28300 (SL-1) higher basic pay in the pre-revised scale is fixed at the same stage (74300) than the employees who have drawn lower basic pay in the pre-revised scale (see SL-2, SL-3).

b) Revised basic pay of an employee who had drawn 28470 (SL-4) higher basic pay in the pre-revised scale is fixed at the same stage 74300 thanthe employees who have drawn basic pay in the pre-revised scale (see SL-1, 51-2, SL-3)

c) Revised basic pay of an employee whose revised basic comes to 81238 (SL-5) in the revised scale is fixed at a stage (83300) equal to the employees who revised basic pay comes to 81212 (see SL-7,8,9)

d) Revised basic pay of employees drawing GP of 4200, 4600, 4800, 7600 (SL-6,7,8,9) are fixed at the same stages from index Serial 9 to 20 (44900 to 62200) of level -6 (4200 GP), stages from index serial 1 to 12 (44900 to 62200) in Level -7 (4600 GP) and stages from index-2 to 10 (49000 to 62200) of Level — 8 (GP-4800) are one and the same in the feeder cadre and promoted level. As a result officials who are promoted from Level 6 to 7 and from Level 7 to 8 are the losers as their pay on promotion will be fixed in the cell which would be equal to the amount in the lower level after addition of one increment.

e) An employee who is drawing more pay in the pre-revised pay is being fixed less in the revise pay eg. Revised Basic Pay drawing 21320 with GP 5400 will he fixed at 69000 on 01.01.2016 (Level 10) where as basic pay of an employee drawing 21300 with GP 5400 will be fixed at 69200 on 01.01.2016 (Level 9).

f) Similarly when an employee drawing 4600 GP (Level 7) is granted MACP to 4800 GP (level 8) there is no change in his revised basic pay as per Pay Matrix.

Construction of pay matrix is done in such a way that on promotion in most of the cases the fixation falls at the same stage (even though pay level is lower and higher) thus the benefit on promotion is only the annual increment. If minimum benefit of two increments is not ensured on promotion, that will act as disincentive to the employees for accepting promotion.
