I am sending herewith a circular issued by the DOE regarding fixation of pay in the case of upgraded scales. Though as per para-4 of the said OM, in all the cases where pay scale has been upgraded the pay should be fixed as on 1.1.2006 by following the Illustration 4A of CCS (RP) Rules, 2008. It is not known as to why this OM has not been made to applicable to SG Gr.II & Stenographer GR.I, in the pay scale of Rs.5000 and Rs.5500 which stand merged and upgraded to the pay scale of Rs.6500.
This may be posted in the blog to elicit the expert opinion of the members.
