(8)                        Where in the fixation of pay under sub-rule (1), the pay of a Government servant, who, in the existing pay structure, was drawing immediately before the 1st day of January, 2016 more pay than another Government servant junior to him in the same cadre, gets fixed in the revised pay structure in a Cell lower than that of such junior, his pay shall be stepped up to the same Cell in the revised pay structure as that of the junior.

(9)                        Where  a  Government  servant  is  in  receipt  of  personal  pay  immediately  before  the  date  of notification of these rules,   which together with his existing emoluments exceed the revised emoluments, then the difference representing such excess shall be allowed to such Government servant as personal pay to be absorbed in future increase in pay.
