In continuation of this Department’s OM of even number dated 13.8.1999 regarding pay revision of the public sector employees following CDA pattern in 69 PSEs, the undersigned is directed to convey that the Government have decided to extend the benefits of incentive for promoting small family norms to the Central Public Sector employees following CDA pattern as follows:
(a) The Special Increment presently admissible in the form of Personal Pay to the Public Sector employees who had undergone sterlisation prior to January 1, 1996 and were drawing pay in the pre-revised pay scales shall be revised so as to be equivalent to the lowest rate of increment applicable in the relevant revised scales of pay corresponding to the pay scale of the post against which the employee concerned had initially earned the personal pay in the applicable pre-revised scale of pay.
(b) Such of those public sector employees who had undergone sterlisation after January 1,1996 and had opted to come over to the revised scales of pay shall also be entitled to the Special Increment equal to the lowest rate of increment in the revised scales of pay applicable at the time of undergoing sterilisation.
(c) Employees who had opted to retain the pre-revised scales of the pay shall, however, entitled to the Special Increment only at the lowest rate of increment applicable in the relevant pre-revised scale of pay. This will be revised so as to correspond to the lowest rate of increment in the applicable revised pay scale only on their switching over to the revised scales.
(d) The Personal Pay shall henceforth be termed as “Family Planning Allowance”.
(e) The Family Planning Allowance for adoption of small family norms shall be admissible in future only to those public sector employees with not more than two surviving children.
