FIXATION OF PAY UNDER TAMIL NADU REVISES PAY RULES, 2017 
25. (1) In order to facilitate a smooth and systematic fixation of pay, a proforma for the purpose (Statement of Fixation of Pay) is enclosed at Appendix-II. The statement of fixation of pay in revised pay structure as per the Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017 be prepared in triplicate and one copy thereof be placed in the Service Book of the employee concerned and another copy made available to the concerned accounting authority [Accountant General / Pay and Accounts Officer / Treasury Officer / Sub-Treasury Officer] for post-check.

(2) The Commissioner of Treasuries and Accounts shall issue the instructions to the concerned authority to check the correctness of the fixation of pay in the revised pay structure and ensure the fixation of pay in order as per the Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017. All the particulars in the Statement of fixation of pay shall be entered in the e-Payroll and the consolidated data of the all the employees shall be handed over to the Finance Department on or before 1-1-2018.

(3) The statement of fixation of pay in respect of Government employees drawing pay in the Level-26 and above shall be fixed by the Pay and Accounts Officer / Treasury Officers / Sub-Treasury Officers / Accountant General as the case may be in the proforma given in Appendix-II based on the option exercised by such employees and pay slips issued. In respect of other employees, the Heads of Offices shall fix the pay in the new pay structure without consultation of the Accountant General or the Pay and Accounts Officer or Treasury Officer in the proforma given in Appendix-II and a copy thereof shall, however, be sent along with the pay bill for claiming the emoluments in the revised pay structure to the Pay and Accounts Officer / Treasury Officer / Sub-Treasury Officer for post-audit. The requirement of pre-check of pay fixation having been dispensed with, it is not unlikely that the fixation of pay due in some cases may be computed incorrectly leading to over payments that might have to be recovered subsequently. Therefore, the Drawing and Disbursing Officers should make it clear to the employees under their administrative control, while disbursing the revised pay; that the payments are being made subject to adjustment from amounts that may be due to them subsequently should any discrepancies be noticed later. For this purpose, an undertaking as prescribed as per a “Form of Option” under Rule 6(2) of the Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017 shall be obtained in writing from every employee at the time of exercising option under Rules 6(2) thereof.

(4) All the Administrative Department of Secretariat / Heads of Department / Head of Offices are directed to issue necessary instructions to all the Drawing and Disbursing Officers under their control to claim the revised pay forthwith based on the Proceedings / Orders issued by the Pay Fixation Authorities duly fixing the pay of the employees in the revised pay structure and make payment in the revised pay structure.

7. Fixation of pay in the revised pay structure at the time of migration
(1) The pay of a Government employee who opts or is deemed to have opted under rule 6 to be governed by the revised pay structure with effect from 1st day of January, 2016 or a different date of migration shall, unless the Government by special order in any specific case otherwise directs, be fixed separately in respect of his substantive pay in the permanent post on which he holds a lien or would have held a lien if such lien had not been suspended, and in respect of his pay in the officiating post held by him, in the following manner, namely:-

(i) the pay in the applicable Level in the Pay Matrix shall be the pay obtained by multiplying the existing basic pay by a factor of 2.57, rounded off to the nearest rupee and the figure so arrived at shall be located in the respective Level in the Pay Matrix and if such an identical figure corresponds to any Cell in the applicable Level of the Pay Matrix, the same shall be the pay, and if no such Cell is available in the applicable Level, the pay shall be fixed at the immediate next higher Cell in that applicable Level of the Pay Matrix. (Illustration-I – See Schedule-V)

(ii) if the minimum pay or the first Cell in the applicable Level is more than the amount arrived at as per sub-clause (i) above, the pay shall be fixed at minimum pay or the first Cell of that applicable Level. (Illustration-II – See Schedule-V)

(2) Where in fixation of pay, the pay of Government employees drawing pay at two or more stages in the existing Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale, as the case may be, get fixed at same Cell in the applicable Level in the Pay Matrix, one additional increment shall be given for every two stages bunched and the pay of Government employee drawing higher pay in existing pay structure shall be fixed at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level.

Explanation: For this purpose, the pay drawn by two Government employees in a given Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale where the higher pay is at least 3 percent more than the lower pay shall constitute two stages. Employees drawing pay where the difference is less than 3 percent shall not be entitled for this benefit.

(3) If by stepping up of the pay as above, the pay of a Government employee gets fixed at a stage in the revised pay structure which is higher than the stage in the revised pay structure at which the pay of a Government employee who was drawing pay at the next higher stage or stages in the same existing pay structure gets fixed, the pay of the latter shall also be stepped up to the extent by which it falls short of that of the former.

(4) Where in the fixation of pay under sub-rule (1), the pay of a Government employee, who, in the existing pay structure, was drawing immediately before the 1st day of January, 2016 pay greater than another Government employee junior to him in the same cadre, gets fixed in the revised pay structure in a Cell with pay lower than that of such junior, his pay shall be stepped up to the same Cell in the revised pay structure as that of his junior.

(5) If a Government employee was under reduction of pay or stoppage of increment as a penalty on the 1st January 2016, his pay shall be fixed in the revised pay structure on the basis of emoluments he drew on the 1st January 2016 and he shall continue to draw the pay so fixed in the revised scale till the expiry of the period of penalty. His pay in the revised scale shall be refixed immediately following the date of expiry of the period of penalty with reference to the emoluments which he would have drawn on the 1st January, 2016 taking the fact into consideration whether the penalty awarded is with or without cumulative effect.

Illustration: If a Government employee’s increment falling due on the 1st January, 2016 had been postponed for a year without cumulative effect, his actual present emoluments as on the 1st January 2016 would be the basis for determination of his revised pay with effect from the 1st January, 2016 and the pay so fixed shall be in force upto the 31st December 2016. However, for purpose of determination of his pay with effect from 1st January 2017 his pay on the 1st January 2016 shall be refixed notionally based on the present emoluments which he would have received on the 1st January 2016 but for his penalty and he will get the next increment on the 1st January 2017 from that stage.

If, however, the penalty of stoppage of increment due on the 1st January 2016 had been awarded with cumulative effect, the revised pay shall be fixed based on the actual present emoluments as on the 1st January 2016. There shall be no refixation of pay in this case.

8. Fixation of pay of employees appointed first time in Government by direct recruitment or otherwise on or after 1st day of January, 2016–

Notwithstanding the provisions of rule 6, pay of an employee appointed to Government service for first time by direct recruitment or otherwise on or after 1st January 2016 shall be fixed, with effect from the date of appointment, at the minimum pay or the first Cell in the respective Level applicable to the post to which such employees are appointed:

Provided that where the existing emoluments of such employee is higher than such minimum pay or the first cell, the difference shall be paid as personal pay to be absorbed in subsequent increments in pay.

Explanation 1: “existing emoluments” means the sum of (i) basicpay excluding personal pay/special pay, if any and (ii) dearness allowance on the date of his appointment.

Explanation 2: Personal pay to be absorbed in subsequent increments in pay means that no further increments shall be sanctioned till the increments due become greater than the personal pay, and thereafter, increments due shall be paid and personal pay shall be discontinued.

9.Increments in Pay Matrix
The increment shall be effected by moving vertically down along the applicable Level by one cell from the existing cell of pay in the pay matrix . (Illustration–III – see Schedule-V).

10. Date of next increment in the revised pay structure–

(1) There shall be four quarters for grant of increment namely, 1st January, 1st April, 1st July and 1st October of every year:

Provided that an employee shall be entitled to only one annual increment either on 1st January or 1st April or 1st July or 1st October depending on the date of his appointment and promotion.

(i) The Government employees shall be permitted to draw their annual increment in the revised pay structure in four quarters admissible in the existing pay structure as the case may be viz. 1st January, 1st April, 1st July and 1st October.

(iii) lf a Government employee draws his next increment in the revised pay scale under sub-rule (ii) above and thereby becomes eligible for higher pay than his senior whose next increment falls due on a later date, then the pay of such senior shall be re-fixed equal to the pay of the junior from the date on which the junior becomes entitled to higher pay.

11. Stagnation and Bonus increment
(1) A Government employee drawing pay in the level 24 and above shall on completion of every term of 10 years of service in a particular level without promotion shall be granted one additional increment as stagnation increment on the date of completion of such term.

Provided that periods that such Government employee has worked in posts in the corresponding grade in the existing pay structure or corresponding pay scale prior to introduction of existing pay structure without promotion shall be counted while arriving at the term of service in the particular level.

(2) Government employee completing 30 years of continuous service in the same post shall be granted one additional increment as bonus increment on the date of completion of such period.

(3) Where a Government employee has been drawing maximum permissible pay of the applicable pay band or scale in the existing pay structure for more than two years as on 1st January 2016, he shall be sanctioned one additional increment for every two completed years of stagnation at such maximum permissible pay after fixing pay in the revised pay structure under rule 7, subject to the condition that the pay arrived at after grant of such increment does not exceed the maximum of the applicable level of the Pay Matrix. (Illustration-IV : Schedule-V)

7th CPC Pay for Teachers and Equivalent Academic Staff in Universities/Colleges – Cabinet Approval on 11.10.2017

Cabinet approves revised pay scales of teachers and equivalent academic staff in Universities/Colleges & centrally funded technical institutions

The Union Cabinet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given its approval for revision of pay scales for about 8 lakh teachers and other equivalent academic staff in higher educational institutions under the purview of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and in Centrally Funded Technical Institutions, following implementation of the recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission for Central Government employees.

The decision will benefit 7.58 lakh teachers and equivalent academic staff in the 106 Universities / Colleges which are funded by the UGC/MHRD and also 329 Universities which are funded by State Governments and 12,912 Govt. and private aided colleges affiliated to State Public Universities.

In addition, the revised pay package will cover teachers of 119 Centrally Funded Technical Institutions viz. IITs, IISc, IIMs, IISERs, IIITs, NITIE. etc.

The approved pay scales would be applicable from 1.1.2016. The annual Central financial liability on account of this measure would be about Rs. 9,800 crore.

The implementation of this pay revision will enhance the teachers’ pay in the range of Rs. 10,400 and Rs. 49,800 as against the extant entry pay due to the implementation of the 6th Central Pay Commission for the pay of teachers. This revision would register an entry pay growth in the range of 22% to 28 %.

For the State Govt. funded institutions, the revised pay scales will require adoption by the respective State Governments. The Central Government will bear the additional burden of the States on account of revision of pay scales. The measures proposed in the revised pay structure are expected to improve quality of higher education and also attract and retain talent.
