Subject: Anomalies in the Implementation of the Date of Increment of the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) Report Adopted by Government of Assam

 

Respected Sir,

With due respect, we would like to inform you that as per 6th Central Pay Commission (CPC) and UGC 6th Pay Commission Report there was a single date of increment i.e. on the 1st July every year. In the implementation phase, many anomalies arose out of this.

In the 7th CPC, two dates of increment were proposed instead of the previous single date of increment in the 6th CPC. It was done with the intention to provide similar scope for all the employees. In the 7th CPC, date of increment in the case of employees joined in government service or promoted in between 2nd day of January and 1st day of July (both inclusive) on next 1st day of January, and the increment in respect of an employee appointed or promoted or granted financial up gradation during the period between 2nd day of July and 1st day of January (both inclusive) shall be granted on 1st day of July.

However, in case of Assam, the government is not following the two dates of increments. Instead of it, it is providing one increment to those who have already completed three months of service. This worsens the situation for almost half of the employees. We understand that Education is a State issue but such modification seems both unusual and uncalled for especially where it adversely affects the career prospects of the half of all the employees.

The modification in the 7th CPC by the Government of Assam divides all the employees into two groups- one with more avenues and another group with fewer avenues. In the following, an example is cited to describe the problem in detail.

            In Case-1, a Person-A has joined as Assistant Professor with Master Degree and UGC NET on 30/3/2016. His basic pay on 1/7/2022 will be Rs. 73,100.00. However, in Case-2, a Person-B has joined as Assistant Professor with Master Degree and UGC NET on 2/4/2016 (just after two days from the date of joining of the Person-A). His basic pay on 1/7/2022 will be Rs. 68,900.00 and to get the Basic pay equivalent to the Person-A mentioned in the Case-1, Person-B need to spend another two years. The situation will worsen when both the people will move to the Academic Level-12, 13-A, and 14. For example, on 1/7/2029, Person-A will get a basic pay of Rs. 95,300 whereas Person-B on the same date will get a basic pay of Rs. 87,200.00.

            So, considering the sensitiveness of the matter, I request your honour to take the matter seriously and initiate appropriate action in this regard.

            Thanking you in anticipation.

 

 

 

 

Yours Sincerely

Case-1

What if a person is promoted in December? Will s/he start getting the increment from the following Jan. 1?

Sir,
As per the new Circular from the Govt. of Assam, if the person is promoted to the higher academic level in December, he/she will be eligible for annual increment in the next year's 1st July.

As per 7th CPC, 

In case of an employee appointed or promoted in the normal hierarchy during the period between the 2nd day of July, 2016 and the 1st day of January, 2017, the first increment shall accrue on the 1st day of July, 2017 and thereafter it shall accrue after one year on annual basis.

In case of an employee appointed or promoted in the normal hierarchy during the period between 2nd day of January, 2016 and 1st day of July, 2016, who did not draw any increment on 1st day of July, 2016, the next increment shall accrue on 1st day of January, 2017 and thereafter it shall accrue after one year on annual basis:

Thank you, sir, for clarifying this.

As per your response (and in accordance with the 7th CPC), an employee promoted in December will get the due increment only from the 1st July of the following year. Does it mean that the employee will be admissible to two increments on the 1st July of the following year, i.e., one for the promotion and the other for the annual increment?
