Since the OM dated 04.11.1993 stipulates general conditions of stepping up of pay, this should be followed even in cases covered under OMs dated 13.04.1988, 23.02.1994 and 08.10.1996. All the three OMs are to be read with and subject to the general instructions in the matter issued vide DOP&T OM dated 04.11.1993, therefore, stepping up of pay is not (NOT) to be allowed where junior was drawing more pay than the senior in the lower grade.
