THE MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE

(a): Yes Sir. This benefit has been extended to Personal Assistants of CSS, Assistants and Personal Assistants of Railway Board, MEA and AFHQ cadre which are treated at par with CSS.
(b): During the course of implementation of CCS(RP) Rules 2008, on reference from MEA, Railway Board, DOPT & AFHQ in the year 2009, this Department has issued certain clarifications regarding the manner of fixation of pay of officials promoted as Assistants/PAs between 01.01.2006 and 31.08.2008, stipulating that in the case of Government Servant who were promoted as Assistant/PAs between 01.01.2006 and 31.8.2008, their pay will be fixed as per the option exercised by them. In terms of CCS(RP) Rules 2008, they have the option to (i) either have their pay fixed w.e.f. 01.01.2006 with reference to scale of the lower post which they were holding as on 01.01.2006, or (ii) from the date of promotion which took place after 01.01.2006; in such cases, their pay will be fixed with reference to the fitment table of the higher pay scale, however, they will not be entitled to arrears of pay from 01.01.2006 till the date of option.
(c): No Sir.
(d): Does not arise.
The fixation at 18460 is not allowed to department of Post eligible officers. All other ministries have alliwed but despite favourable CAT judgement nothing is done by postal department . Department of postal Accounts people might have come from heaven to intrepret differently. Its very sad Postal officers promoted between 01.01.2006 to 30.8.2008 are not extended benifit of 18460 fixation.
