Subject: Recommendations of the 7th Central Pay Commission- bunching of
stages in the revised pay structure-reg. 
 
Sir, 
I am directed to say that after revision of pay scales w.e.f 01.01.2016,
the pay of a member of Service drawing pay at two or more stages in
pre-revised Pay Band and Grade Pay or scale and gets fixed at same Cell in
the applicable Level in the new Pay Matrix, one additional increment shall
be given for every two stages bunched and the pay of member of Service
drawing higher pay in pre-revised structure shall be fixed at the next
vertical Cell in the applicable Level as per the Proviso (a) to Rule 4 (A)
of the IAS (Pay) Rules, 2016 
2. However, this Department has been receiving queries from various
Ministries/Departments/State Governments for fixation of pay in respect of
members of Service whose pay gets fixed at the same Cell,in the applicable
Level in the new Pay Matrix. The matter was clarified vide OM
No.13021/1/2016-AIS-I (Pt.2) dated the 10th October, 2016 (copy enclosed).
It is once again clarified that as per Rule 4 (A)(ii) of IAS (Pay) Rule,
2016, in cases of fixation of pay of IAS officers drawing pay at two or
more stages in the pre-revised Pay Band and Grade Pay gets fixed at the
same Cell in the applicable Level of the Pay Matrix, one additional
increment may be given for every two stages bunched so that the pay of the
member of Service drawing higher pay in the pre-revised structure is fixed
at the next vertical Cell in the applicable Level. 
Illustration:
 
If two members of Service drawing pay of Rs.53000 and Rs.54590 in the GP
10000 are to be fitted in the new pay matrix, the member of Service drawing
pay of Rs.53000 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay
corresponding to Rs.1,36,210 and the member of Service drawing pay of
Rs.54590 on multiplication by a factor of 2.57 will expect a pay
corresponding to Rs. 1,40,296.


Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of
level 14 in the pay of Rs. 1,44,200 but to avoid bunching the
member of Services drawing pay of Rs.54590 will get fixed second
cell of level 14 in the pay of Rs.1,48,500. 
 
2. This issues with the approval of the competent authority.
