It is not good decision of Central govt only for 4200/- GP but govt has to consider for those are working in GP 2800/-

Primary school teacher will get 4200/- GP but one accountant will get 2800/- GP .It is not good fixation of Govt..Becuase one primary teacher qualification is +2 with teaching trainig but one accountant qualification is B.Com.That's why accountnat scale should be more than one primary teacher.

sir, am a tax assistant in income tax deptt selected through staff selection commision whose required qualification is graduate with computer proficiency in the grade pay of Rs.2400 only. Tax Assistants are the most sufferers and neglected categories in this 6th CPC. So why govt is not at all worried about this poor fellows as their job responsibilities, work load as well as job status are much raised now-a-days. No union/associations are trying hard to bring the equilibrium position of their work load with pay status. So kindly requesting to examine the matter for these neglected categories. Regards.

May pay was fixed in the grade pay of 4200. whether I will get Rs. 4,600 as grade pay w.e.f. 1.1.2006. Some say that our organisation is not eligible for it. Please confirm it and reply. Moreover, I would like to know that in case they give us Rs. 4,600 grade pay what would be my basic pay as on 1.1.2006. I have also got my ACP from 1.9.2008.

I am working as a Steno Grade _i andy my pay has been fixed in the scale of 9300-34800
I joined the govt. office on 1.10.1983. my pay was upgraded in 1995 from 12000 to 1400 and i was denied ACP due to this upgradation.
in 2005 i became steno grade -I.
my grade pay was fixed in Rs.4200 and after 2nd ACP my grade pay is 4600 w.e.f. 1.9.2008. My doubt am I not eligible to get grade pay w.e.f. 1.1.2006 since three posts i.e. 5000, 5500 have been merged with 6500 which is being upgraded to Rs.7450/- now please someone say or give me justice because my juniors are getting grade pay 4600 w.e.f. 1.1.2006 and i am senior i started getting grade pay 4600/- after implementation of MACP.
Also please tell me what is my designation whether stenographer grade -I or Personal Assistant.
I hope a fare reply
regards
