What says FR & SR Rules regarding increment..!
The annual increase in pay is drawn as a matter of course from the 1st of July every year, except when it is withheld as a statutory punishment. If a Government employee is on leave or is availing joining time on the 1st July, the increased pay will be drawn only from the date on which he resume duty and not from the first of July…
The annual increment will be 3% of total pay in the running pay band and corresponding grade pay rounded off to next multiple of 10. While rounding off, paisa would be ignored but any amount of a rupee or more would be rounded off to next multiple of 10.

The officiating service in a higher grade shall count for increments in an officer and other employee’s substantive grade as well as in the higher grade in which he is officiating and, if there is an intermediate grade between the two in which he would have officiated had he not been appointed to officiate in the higher grade, also in the intermediate grade, but the period during which an officer and other employee is on leave without pay shall not count for increment unless so authorized by the Authority for reasons to be recorded in writing.
The sanction to draw increments shall be given by the competent authority:
Provided that no increment shall be withheld except as a disciplinary measure under these regulations and each order withholding an increment shall state the period for which it is withheld and also whether the postponement shall have the effect of postponing future increments.
