Ref: This HQrs office circular bearing No. AN/XIV/14162NI CPC/Circular/Vol-IV, dated 04.09.2009.
Reference is invited to contents of circular cited under reference, wherein instruction was issued to discontinue the practice of allowing the benefits of pay fixation/allowances under RPR 2008 at the time of promotion from SO(A) to AAO in anticipation of clarification to be issued by Ministry of Finance (Department of Expenditure).

Vijaya Kumar Naidu and 12 others before the Hon’ble CAT Bangalore Bench praying for restoration of pay fixation benefit of 3% allowed to the applicants on their promotion grade after 01.01.2006 and consequential benefits upon restoration of pay fixation benefit. The OA was allowed by the Hon’ble CAT and the order implemented by the Competent Authority in respect of the applicants only.
3. The issue was referred to DoP&T, Ministry of Law & Justice and Ministry of Finance for general implementation to all similarly placed persons. Having been approved by Ministries/DoP&T, the competent authority has decided to extend the benefit of Hon’ble CAT Bangalore Bench order dated 10.10.2012 in OA No. 489/2011 to all similarly placed persons, who were promoted to the post of Assistant Accounts Officer during the period from 01.01.2006 to 29.08.2008.

Action taken in this regard may be intimated to HQrs office.
