Sub:- Grant of arrear of stagnation increment, consequent to the implementation of 6th CPC — reg.
During the period when recommendations of 5th Central Pay Commission were in vogue i.e. prior to implementation of the recommendations of 6th Central Pay Commission, there were employees, who had reached the maximum of the scale of pay and (5th CPC) were in receipt of stagnation increment, after an interval of two years.
Fixation of pay of such employees as per recommendations of 6th cpc was done based on pay drawn by them on 31.02.2005 and they were given increment from 1st July, 2006. The pay structure of 6th CPC was given effect from 01.01.2006. However, such of the stagnated employees were not extended the under noted benefits:-
“Those employees should have been extended the benefit of their normal increment during Feb to June 2006 as if they were not stagnating during the same period. They may also be considered accordingly for re-fixation of pay and payment of consequent arrears.”
The above demand of the employees assumes more significance because of the fact that such employees had been stagnating for longer durations in the same scale of pay without any promotion, and really deserved the financial benefits. Since number of such employees is not going to be too large, NFIR therefore, requests the DOPT to issue instructions for granting the benefit mentioned above. Action taken in the matter may be advised to the Federation.
