SUPPLEMENTARY MEMORANDUM SUBMITTED BY IRTSA TO SEVENTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION
Chapter – 13
BENEFITS & DRAWBACKS OF PAY BAND & GRADE PAY SYSTEM INTRODUCED BY SIXTH CENTRAL PAY COMMISSION
13.1. Benefits& Drawbacks of Pay Band and Grade Pay system introduced by 6th CPC
i. Problem of stagnation in pay is eliminated, since pay bands are having long spans.
ii. If employees are stagnated at the maximum of any pay band for more than one year, continuously,
he/she shall be placed in the immediate next higher pay band without change in the Grade Pay.
iii. Point to point fixation was facilitated by the pay band system, (with one increment in the revised pay scale for every three increments in the pre-revised scale) – But the employees with more years of service were placed in a disadvantageous position.
iv. Quantum of increment increases exponentially, instead of fixed rate of increment attached to every pay scale – But the difference became very large at higher levels – thus causing discrimination with those at middle & lower levels.
v. Grade Pay decides hierarchy / seniority of the post.
13.2. Main Draw backs of Pay Band and Grade Pay system introduced by 6th CPC
i. Increase between minimum basic pay of prerevised scale and minimum of every Revised Pay Band is not uniform. There is much greater increase in favour of PB-3 & PB-4.
ii. Arbitrary adoption of formula of 40% of maximum of the merged scales for deciding the Grade Pay – instead of progressive and proportionate rise of Grade Pay from one scale to the next.
