- on promotion to the grade of

addition HS-II Grade Pay of Rs.2400/- is
to be allowed.
B : How pay will be fixed
in respect of the individuals
who have become HS-II
w.e.f. 01/0112006 due to
Pay, which they were drawing
as Highly Skilled would be the
pay of HS-II and that pay
would have to be revised
under RPR 2008 in PB-I
as per the fitment table
In addition they
will be allowed
Grade Pay of Rs.2400/-
This placement would not

order dated 20.06.2011.
C : How pay will be fixed in
respect of the individuals who
have become HS-I w.e.f. 01/01/2006
due to restructuring.
Before 01/01/2006 HS-I and HS-II
were merged into one single grade
i.e. H.S.(Pay Scale: 4000- 6000)
As per MoD order No.11 (5)/2009-D
(Civ -I) dated 14/06/2010 HS worker
have been divided into HS-II
(Grade Pay of Rs.2400/-) and HS-I

01/01/2006. Movement from HS-II
(4000-6000) to HS-I (4500- 7000)
is a promotion.
Since SRO 11E dated 28/08/2009 has
split up HS workers into HS-II
(4000-6000) and HS-I (4500- 7000)
w.e.f. 01.01.2006 and the movement
from HS to HS-I has been treated as
promotion as per MoD No. dated 14.06.2010.
it is viewed that promotional benefit under
pre-revised scale of pay i.e. from 4000-6000
to the notional scale of 4500-7000 is not
to be allowed.
The pay will be fixed under RPR’08 as per
fitment table corresponding to pre revised
scale of 4000- 6000/- and thereafter,
promotional benefit in the form of increment @ 3%
shall be given on pay in the Band pay and Grade
Pay of Rs.2400/- on promotion to the grade
of Highly Skilled-I on or after 01/01/2006.
The Grade Pay of HS-I i.e. Rs.2800/- is to be given.

the post of MCM prior to 01.01.2006
will be fixed on 01 .01 .2006 due to
Their pay would be fixed as per
Note 2A below Rule 7 of CCS RP
Rule,2008 i.e. by multiplying the
existing basic pay as on 01.01.2006
by a factor of 1.86 and rounding off to
the next multiple of Rs. 10/-.
If the minimum of the Pay Band-2
is more than the amount arrived
at as per above, the pay shall be
fixed at the minimum of the PB-2.
The Grade Pay corresponding
to the post of MCM i.e. 4200/-
in PB-2 will also be allowed.
E : Whether Bunching increment
benefit as per Min. Defence notification
dated 09/09/2008, has to be
given to the employees who were
drawing pay between Rs.4500/-
to Rs.5000/- as on 01/01/2006
since they will be fixed at the minimum
of the pay band of RS.9300/-
Benefit of bunching increment
may be considered as per provisions
laid down below Rule 7 (A) (ii)
notification of CCS (RP) Rules 2008.
F: Whether on IE who was
placed to MCM before 1-1-2006
and promoted to MCM on 1-1-2006
is eligible for 3rd MACP with
grade pay of Rs.4600 after 30 years
on the plea that he was granted only
two up-gradations in his entire
service i.e. skilled to H.S. and
H.S. to MCM.
Yes. Such MCM is eligible for
3 MACP with GP 4600 after
30 years of service if found
otherwise eligible, as they got
two promotions prior to 01/01/2006 ie.
Skilled to HS and HS to MCM.
But those IEs who were not placed to MCM
before 1 -1-2006 are not eligible for
3 MACP because such persons have got
or shall get promotion from skilled to H.S. II,
from HS-II to H.S-I and H.S I to MCM.
So, there is no scope for 3rd MACP up-gradation.
2. However, it is opined that in all aforesaid cases, the individuals may
submit their options for fixation of pay as mentioned in MoD order dated
14/06/2010 and arrear may be calculated based on option of the individuals.
