OFFICE MEMORANDUM
 

Sub: Seventh Central Pay Commission’s recommendations — revision of pay
scales — amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment Rules.
 
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM of even number
dated 9th August, 2016 regarding amendment of Service Rules/Recruitment
Rules by replacing the existing Pay Band and Grade Pay with the
corresponding Level in the Pay Matrix in the revised pay structure
recommended by the Seventh CPC and notified in the CCS(Revised Pay) Rules,
2016. 
2. Subsequently, this Department held meetings in October/November, 2016
with the administrative Ministries/Departments to review the progress in
the implementation of the OM. An important suggestion made in the meetings
was with respect to facilitating the process of consultation with the
Legislative Department for drafting notification for amendment of RRs in
accordance with OM dated 9th August, 2016 and its Hindi translation so as
to expedite the issue of notification. In this regard, this Department in
consultation with Legislative Department has prepared a model notification
in English and Hindi for use of the Administrative Ministries/Departments.
These are annexed at Annexure I and Annexure II. 
 
3. Another issue which came up in the meeting is with respect to retention
of standard Note under Co1.11 incorporated in the Schedule of the RRs
regarding the regulation of service rendered prior to implementation of 6th
CPC, in those cases where the issue of upgradation/merger of the posts were
involved. The relevant Note reads as follows: 

“Note: For the purpose of computing minimum qualifying service for
promotion, the service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior
to 1.1.2006/the date from which the revised pay structure based on the
6th CPC recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be
service rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended
based on the recommendations of the Commission. ” 
 
and/or 

“Note: For purposes of appointment on deputation/absorption basis, the
service rendered on a regular basis by an officer prior to 1.1.2006/the
date from which the revised pay structure based on the 6th CPC
recommendations has been extended, shall be deemed to be service
rendered in the corresponding grade pay/pay scale extended based on the
recommendations of the Commission except where there has been merger of
more than one pre-revised scale of pay into one grade with a common
grade pay/pay scale, and where this benefit will extend only for the
post(s) for which that grade pay/pay scale is the normal replacement
grade without any upgradation.” 
 
4.After the implementation of 7th CPC, there are only a few cases of
merger/upgradation of pay scale. It has been decided in consultation with
UPSC that in cases where merger/ upgradation of pay are not involved in the
recommendations of the 7th CPC,

the Note as referred above is not to be prescribed in the RRs/SRs.

The guidelines in this regard have also been separately issued. The model
notification includes a provision for deletion of the Note. 
5.The Ministries/Departments are requested to finalise draft notification
for amendment of the SRs/RRs in line with the model notification and
thereafter, refer the same to the Legislative Department for vetting. The
Legislative Department may dispose of references received from the
Ministries/Departments within two weeks. Any amendment which is beyond the
scope of the model rules will be finalized in usual process i.e.
consultation with DoPT, UPSC and Legislative Department. 
6.This Department is monitoring the implementation of the OM dated
09.08.2016. All Ministries / Departments are therefore requested to furnish
information as per Annexure-III at the earliest. 

Encl.: As above
