PAY RULES CCS(Revised Pay) Rules,2008 come in to effect from 01.01.2006 It introduces a new concept of Pay Band and Grade pay. It also prescribes an entry level higher pay for Direct Recruits than Promotees.
ANNUAL INCREMENT One increment equal to 3% of pay in Pay Band +Grade Pay rounded off to the next multiple of Rs.10/-.Fraction in paisa to be ignored. This amount is to be added to the existing pay in PB. It will take effect from 01.07. of each year.

ANNUAL INCREMENT(contd) All periods of duty, All kinds of leave,(except EOL) Foreign service Joining Time Period of Training before appointment on stipend or otherwise.-all these items are treated as QS service for increment purpose.

FIXATION OF PAY-. Pay of an official will be refixed when he is granted promotion. There are two methods for refixation. One is by straight method under Rule 22 of FR&SR Another one is by refixation after the official earns an increment in his substantive post under Rule 22 I(a) (1)of FR&SR
STARIGHT METHOD-When there is a change in grade pay One increment equal to 3% of the sum of the pay in pay band and the existing grade pay will be calculated and rounded off to the next multiple of Rs.10/- This will be added to the existing pay in pay band . The grade pay corresponding to the promotion post will then be added to the pay band .
Example A Timescale Postal assistant with following pay stands promoted to LSG with GP Rs.2,800/- Pay in Pay Band on the date of promotion -------------------- Rs.8,000 Grade pay ------------------------ Rs.2,400 Total Rs. 10,400 3% on Rs.10,400/- Rs. 312 rounded off to Rs.320/-. His pay on promotion will be Rs.8,320+ New grade pay of Rs.2,800/-
STARIGHT METHOD-When there is a change in Pay band. One increment equal to 3% of the sum of the pay in pay band and the existing grade pay will be calculated and rounded off to the next multiple of Rs.10/- This will be added to the existing pay in pay band . The grade pay corresponding to the promotion post will then be added to the pay band . If the pay in the pay band after adding the increment is less than the minimum of the higher pay band to which promotion is taking place pay in the pay band will be raised to the minimum of the higher pay band.
Example Present pay band 9300-34800 +Grade pay 5400. Present pay Rs.21820/-+5400. Promoted to PB 15600-39100 +Grade pay 6600. 3% notional increment on Present pay Rs.21820/-+5400 = Rs.820. Add Rs.820 with Rs. 21820/- New pay Rs.22640/-+GP Rs. 6600./- New grade pay Rs. 6600./- New pay band Rs. 15600-39100
REFIXATION ON ACCRUAL OF INCREMENT IN OLD POST An official opts to get his pay fixed from his date of next increment. From the date of promotion to till the date of next increment the pay in pay band will be the old one and there will be no change . But the Grade pay will be the grade pay attached to the promotional post. On 01.07. the official will be granted two increments. One normal increment due on 01.07.and another one notional for promotion.
REFIXATION AFTER ACCRUAL OF INCREMENT IN OLD POST While computing the first(normal) increment basic pay + old grade pay prior to the date promotion shall be taken in to account. This will be added to the basic pay Then the second(notional) increment will be calculated by taking in to account of basic pay +first increment + old grade pay Then this will be added to the basic pay. With this basic pay new grade pay will be added.
Example A Timescale Postal assistant with following pay stands promoted to LSG with GP Rs.2,800/- with effect from 25.06.2011 Pay in Pay Band on the date of promotion -------------------- Rs.8,000 Grade pay ------------------------ Rs.2,400 Total Rs. 10,400 His pay on promotion from 25.06.2011 up to 30.06.11 will be Rs.8,000 +New GP Rs.2,800/- On 01.07.2011 his pay will be refixed as follows.
Example -2(contd) Pay in Pay Band on the date of promotion -------------------- Rs.8,000 Grade pay ------------------------ Rs.2,400 Total Rs. 10,400 Normal increment due on 01.07.2011 3%on 10,400 = 312 rounded off to Rs.320/-. Pay after adding normal increment on 01.07.2011 is Rs.8,320.+2400 Then his pay will be refixed as follows
Example -2(contd) Pay in Pay Band on 01.07.2011 after adding normal increment Rs.8,320. Old Grade pay ------------------ Rs. 2,400 Total Rs. 10,720 3% on Rs.10,720/- Rs. 321 rounded off to Rs.330/-.(Notional increment) His pay on promotion will be Rs.8,650+ New grade pay of Rs.2,800/-
