Sub: Proposal for allowing bunching benefit to Inspector of Posts Cadre wef 01.01.2006.

Many references in this regard were received from Circles and Service Association. The matter was referred to Ministry of Finance.

2. I am directed to inform you that Ministry of Finance, Department of Expenditure vide their 1D) No 03-31/2019-E III (A) dated 17.06.2020 has clarified that “It is stated that this Department’s OM dtd 28.09.7019 ensures the minimum entry pay of those existing government servants Whose revised pay as on 01.01.2006 fixed under Rule 7 of CCS (RP) rules 2008 turns out to be lower than the prescribed entry pay for direct recruits of that post. In other words, the revised pay of lnspector of posts cadre as on 01.01.2006 will be fixed under rule 7 of CCS (RP) Rules 2008 i.e. by multiplying the basic pay as on 31.12.2005 in pre-revised scale Rs 5500-9000 with factor 1.86(rounded off to next Rs 10) and thereafter to add the upgraded Grade Pay Rs 4600 and if the resultant figure (i.e. revised pay on Pay band + Grade Pay) is less than the entry pay of inspector of Posts of GP Rs 4600 i.e. Rs 17140, then Inapector of Posts ,may be granted the minimum entry pay of Rs 17140 w.e.f 01.01.2006. The bunching benefit on Entry Pay of Rs 17140 as proposed by D/o Posts, is not in order and hence not agreed to.
