Subject: Grant of Grade Pay of Rs.5400/- (7th CPC level 9) to Sr. Private Secretary on completion of 4 years of regular service in the Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/-

The matter regarding pay fixation on Grant of Grade Pay of Rs. 5400/- (7th CPC level 9) to Sr. Private Secretary upon completion of 4 years of regular service in the grade pay of Rs. 4800/- was taken up with MoF/DoP&T.

2. In view of the guidelines received from the Ministry, it is clarified that upon completion of four years regular service in Grade pay of 4800 (i.e. Level 8), SPS will be placed in Level 9 corresponding to Grade Pay of Rs.5400 at equal or next available cell. Further, in case the official has been granted Grade Pay of Rs. 5400 between January to June he/she will be granted annual increment of July in that year in the Grade Pay of 4800 and will accordingly be placed under Level 9 at equal or next available cell.

3. An illustration to the above effect is given below for better implementation.

Mr. X promoted to SPS grade in April 2012 is drawing Rs. 53600/- in Level 8 as on 01.01.2016. Upon completion of four years in the Grade Pay of Rs. 4800/-, he becomes eligible for placement in the higher Level 9 corresponding to Grade Pay of Rs.5400/- w.e.f. 04/2016. Since the same cell is not available in level 9, his pay will be fixed at Rs.54700/- i.e. the next available cell under Level 9 and he will continue to draw pay at the same rate upto 30.06.2016. Subsequently, upon pay will be fixed at Rs.55200/- (L-8). However, as he needs to be placed in Level 9 i.e. higher pay level his pay will be fixed at 56300/- with DNI as 01/07/2017.

Necessary action may be taken accordingly.
