7. Fixation of initial pay in the revised scale :–

(A) in the case of all employees –
(i) an amount representing 40 per cent of the basic pay in the existing scale shall be added to the ‘existing emoluments’ of the employee;
(ii) after the existing emoluments have been so increased, the pay shall thereafter be fixed in the revised scale at the stage next above the amount thus computed.
Provided that –
(a) if the minimum of the revised scale is more than the amount so arrived at, the pay shall be fixed at the minimum of the revised scale;
(b) if the amount so arrived at is more than the maximum of the revised scale, the pay shall be fixed at the maximum of that scale.
Provided further that –
Where in the fixation of pay, the pay of Government servants drawing pay at more than four consecutive stages in an existing scale gets bunched, that is to say, gets fixed in the revised scale at the same stage, the pay in the revised scale of such of these Government servants who are drawing pay beyond the first four consecutive stages in the existing scale shall be stepped up to the stage where such bunching occurs, as under, by the grant of increment(s) in the revised scale in the following manner, namely;
(a) for Government servants drawing pay from the 5th up to the 8th stage in the existing scale – by one increment.
(b) for Government servants drawing pay from the 9th up to the 12th stage in the existing scale, if there is bunching beyond the 8th stage – by two increments
(c) for Govt. Servants drawing pay from the 13th up to the 16th stage in the existing scale, if there is bunching beyond the 12th stage – by three increments
If by stepping up of the pay as above, the pay of a Government servant gets fixed at a stage in the revised scale which is higher than the stage in the revised scale at which the pay of a Government servant who was drawing pay at the next higher stage or stages in the same existing scale is fixed, the pay of the latter shall also be stepped up only to the extent by which it falls short of that of the former.
Provided also that –
The fixation thus made shall ensure that every employee will get atleast one increment in the revised scale of pay for every three increments [inclusive of stagnation increment(s), if any] in the existing scale of pay.
Explanation – For the purpose of this clause “existing emoluments” shall include,
(a) the basic pay in the existing scale;
(b) dearness allowance appropriate to the basic pay admissible at index average 1510 (1960=100); and
(c) the amounts of first and second installment of interim relief admissible on the basic pay in the existing scale;
(B) in the case of employees who are in receipt of special pay/allowance in addition to pay in the existing scale which has been recommended for replacement by a scale of pay without any special pay/allowance, pay shall be fixed in the revised scale in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above except that in such cases “existing emoluments” shall include –
(a) the basic pay in the existing scale;
(b) existing amount of special pay/allowance;
(c) admissible dearness allowance at index average 1510 (1960=100) under the relevant orders; and
(d) the amounts of first and second installments of interim relief admissible on the basic pay in the existing scale and special pay under the relevant orders;
(C) in the case of employees who are in receipt of special pay component with any other nomenclature in addition to pay in the existing scales, such as personal pay for promoting small family norms, special pay to Parliament Assistants, Central (Deputation on Tenure) Allowance, etc., and in whose case the same has been replaced in the revised scale with corresponding allowance/pay at the same rate or at a different rate, the pay in the revised scale shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above. In such cases the allowance at the new rate as recommended shall be drawn in addition to pay in the revised scale of pay;
(D) in the case of medical officers who are in receipt of non-practising allowance, the pay in the revised scale shall be fixed in accordance with the provisions of clause (A) above except that in such cases the term “existing emoluments” shall not include NPA and will comprise only the following –
(a) the basic pay in the existing scale;
(b) dearness allowance appropriate to the basic pay and non-practising allowance admissible at index average 1510 (1960=100) under the relevant orders; and
(c) the amounts of first and second installments of interim relief admissible on the basic pay in the existing scale and non-practising allowance under the relevant orders.
and in such cases, non-practising allowance at the new rates shall be drawn in addition to the pay so fixed in the revised scale.
Note 1 – The Government servants drawing pay up to the stage of Rs. 1030 in the existing scale of Rs. 775-12-871-14-955-15-1030-20-1150 shall be fixed in S-2 scale of pay and those drawing pay beyond the stage of Rs. 1030 shall be fixed in S-3 scale of pay.
Note 2 – Where the increment of a Government servant falls on 1st day of January, 1996, he shall have option to draw the increment in the existing scale or the revised scale.
Note 3 – Where a Government servant is on leave on the 1st day of January, 1996, he shall become entitled to pay in the revised scale of pay from the date he joins duty. In case of Government servant under suspension, he shall continue to draw subsistence allowance based on existing scale of pay and his pay in the revised scale of pay will be subject to final order on the pending disciplinary proceedings.
Note 4 – Where a Government servant is holding a permanent post and is officiating in a higher post on a regular basis and the scales applicable to these two posts are merged into one scale, the pay shall be fixed under this sub-rule with reference to the officiating post only, and the pay so fixed shall be treated as substantive pay.
The provisions of this Note shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to Government servants holding in an officiating capacity posts on different existing scales which have been replaced by a single revised scale.
Note 5 – Where the existing emoluments as calculated in accordance with clause (A), clause (B), clause (C) or clause (D), as the case may be, exceed the revised emoluments in the case of any Government servant, the difference shall be allowed as personal pay to be absorbed in future increases in pay.
Note 6 – Where in the fixation of pay under sub-rule (1), pay, of a Government servant, who, in the existing scale was drawing immediately before the 1st day of January, 1996 more pay than another Government servant junior to him in the same cadre, gets fixed in the revised scale at a stage lower than that of such junior, his pay shall be stepped up to the same stage in the revised scale as that of the junior.
Note 7 – Where a Government servant is in receipt of personal pay on the 1st day of January, 1996, which together with his existing emoluments as calculated in accordance with clause (A), clause (B), clause (C), or clause (D), as the case may be, exceeds the revised emoluments, then, the difference representing such excess shall be allowed to such Government servant as personal pay to be absorbed in future increases in pay.
Note 8 – In the case of employees who are in receipt of personal pay for passing Hindi Pragya, Hindi Typewriting, Hindi Shorthand and such other examinations under the “Hindi Teaching Scheme”, or on successfully undergoing training in cash and accounts matters prior to the 1st day of January, 1996, while the personal pay shall not be taken into account for purposes of fixation of initial pay in the revised scales, they would continue to draw personal pay after fixation of their pay in the revised scale on and from the 1st day of January, 1996, or subsequently for the period for which they would have drawn it but for the fixation of their pay in the revised scale. The quantum of such personal pay would be paid at the appropriate rate of increment in the revised scale from the date of fixation of pay for the period for which the employee would have continued to draw it.
Explanation – For the purpose of this Note, “appropriate rate of increment in the revised scale” means the amount of increment admissible at and immediately beyond the stage at which the pay of the employee is fixed in the revised scale.
Note 9 – In cases, where a senior Government servant promoted to a higher post before the 1st day of January, 1996 draws less pay in the revised scale than his junior who is promoted to the higher post on or after the 1st day of January, 1996, the pay of the senior Government servant should be stepped up to an amount equal to the pay as fixed for his junior in that higher post. The stepping up should be done with effect from the date of promotion of the junior Government servant subject to the fulfillment of the following conditions, namely :–
(a) both the junior and the senior Government servants should belong to the same cadre and the posts in which they have been promoted should be identical in the same cadre.
(b) the pre-revised and revised scales of pay of the lower and higher posts in which they are entitled to draw pay should be identical.
(c) the senior Government servants at the time of promotion have been drawing equal or more pay than the junior.
(d) The anomaly should be directly as a result of the application of the provisions of Fundamental Rule 22 or any other rule or order regulating pay fixation on such promotion in the revised scale. If even in the lower post, the junior officer was drawing more pay in the pre-revised scale than the senior by virtue of any advance increments granted to him, provision of this Note need not be invoked to step up the pay of the senior officer.
The order relating to re-fixation of the pay of the senior officer in accordance with the above provisions should be issued under Fundamental Rule 27 and the senior officer will be entitled to the next increment on completion of his required qualifying service with effect from the date of re-fixation of pay.
(2) Subject to the provisions of rule 5, if the pay as fixed in the officiating post under sub-rule (1) is lower than the pay fixed in the substantive post, the former shall be fixed at the stage next above the substantive pay.
8. Date of increment in the revised scale – The next increment of a Government servant whose pay has been fixed in the revised scale in accordance with sub-rule (1) of rule 7 shall be granted on the date he would have drawn his increment, had he continued in the existing scale:
Provided that in cases where the pay of a Government servant is stepped up in terms of Note 6 or Note 9 to sub-rule (1) and also second proviso to sub-rule (1) of rule 7, the next increment shall be granted on the completion of qualifying service of twelve months from the date of the stepping up of the pay in the revised scale.
Provided further that in cases other than those covered by the preceding proviso, the next increment of a Government servant, whose pay is fixed on the 1st day of January, 1996 at the same stage as the one fixed for another Government servant junior to him in the same cadre and drawing pay at a lower stage than his in the existing scale, shall be granted on the same date as admissible to his junior, if the date of increment of the junior happens to be earlier.
Provided also that in the case of persons who had been drawing maximum of the existing scale for more than a year as on the 1st day of January, 1996, next increment in the revised scale shall be allowed on the 1st day of January, 1996.
Note 1 – In cases where two existing scales, one being a promotional scale for the other, are merged, and the junior Government servant, now drawing his pay at equal or lower stage in the lower scale of pay, and happens to draw more pay in the revised scale than the pay of the senior Government servant in the existing higher scale, the pay of the senior government servant in the revised scale shall be stepped up to that of his junior from the same date and he shall draw next increment after completing the qualifying period from the date of such stepping up of pay.
9. Fixation of pay in the revised scale subsequent to the 1st day of January, 1996 – Where a Government servant continues to draw his pay in the existing scale and is brought over to revised scale from a date later than the 1st day of January 1996, his pay from the later date in the revised scale shall be fixed under Fundamental Rules and for this purpose his pay in the existing scale shall have the same meaning as of existing emoluments as calculated in accordance with clause (A), clause (B), clause (C) or clause (D), as the case may be, of sub-rule (1) of rule 7 except that the basic pay to be taken into account for calculation of those emoluments will be the basic pay on the later date aforesaid and where the Government servant is in receipt of special pay or non-practising allowance, his pay shall be fixed after deducting from those emoluments an amount equal to the special pay or non-practising allowance, as the case may be, at the revised rates appropriate to the emoluments so calculated.
10. Fixation of pay on reappointment after the 1st day of January, 1996 to a post held prior to that date – A Government servant who had officiated in a post prior to the 1st day of January, 1996 but was not holding that post on that date and who on subsequent appointment to that post draws pay in the revised scale of pay shall be allowed the benefit of the proviso to Fundamental Rule 22, to the extent it would have been admissible had he been holding that post on the 1st day of January, 1996 and had elected the revised scale of pay on and from that date.
11. Mode of payment of arrears of pay – The arrears would be paid in cash with the stipulation that where the amount of arrears is less than
Rs. 5000, it should be paid in one installment and where it is in excess of
Rs. 5000, it should be paid in two installments; in the first installment payment should be restricted to Rs. 5000 plus fifty percent of the balance amount of arrears.
Explanation – For the purposes of this rule:
(a) “arrears of pay”, in relation to a Government servant, means the difference between:–
(i) the aggregate of the pay and allowances to which he is entitled on account of the revision of his pay and allowances under these rules, for the relevant period; and
(ii) the aggregate of the pay and allowances to which he would have been entitled (whether such pay and allowances had been received or not) for that period had his pay and allowances not been so revised.
(b) “relevant period” means the period commencing on the 1st day of January, 1996 and ending with the 30th September, 1997.
12. Overriding effect of Rules – The provisions of the Fundamental Rules, the Central Civil Services (Revision of Pay) Rules, 1947, the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 1960, the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 1973 and the Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 1986, shall not, save as otherwise provided in these rules, apply to cases where pay is regulated under these rules, to the extent they are inconsistent with these rules.
13. Power to relax – Where the President is satisfied that the operation of all or any of the provisions of these rules causes undue hardship in any particular case, he may, by order, dispense with or relax the requirements of that rule to such extent and subject to such conditions as he may consider necessary for dealing with the case in a just and equitable manner.
14. Interpretation – If any question arises relating to the interpretation of any of the provisions of these rules, it shall be referred to the Central Government for decisions.

REVISED PAY SCALES FOR CERTAIN COMMON CATEGORIES OF STAFF
The revised scales of pay mentioned in Column 4 of this part of the Notification for the posts mentioned in column 2 have been approved by the Government. However, it may be noted that in certain cases of the scales of pay mentioned in column 4, the recommendations of the Pay Commission are subject to fulfillment of specific conditions. These conditions relate inter-alia to changes in recruitment rules, restructuring of cadres, re-distribution of posts into higher grades etc. Therefore, in those cases where conditions such as changes in recruitment rules etc. which are brought out by the Pay Commission as the rationale for the grant of these upgraded scales, it will be necessary for the Ministries to decide upon such issues and agree to the changes suggested by the Pay Commission before applying these scales to these posts w.e.f. 1.1.96. In certain other cases where there are conditions prescribed by the Pay Commission as pre-requisite for grant of these scales to certain posts such as cadre restructuring, redistribution of posts etc. It will be necessary for the Ministries/Departments concerned to not only accept these preconditions but also to implement them before the scales are applied to those posts. It would, therefore, be seen that it is implicit in the recommendations of the Pay Commission that such scales necessarily have to take prospective effect and the concerned posts will be governed by the normal replacement scales until then.

[See Rule 6(I)]
*(i) I________________________________________hereby elect the revised scale with effect from 1st January, 1996.
*(ii) I_________________________________________hereby elect to continue on the existing scale of pay of my substantive/officiating post mentioned below until:
* the date of my next increment
The date of my subsequent increment raising my pay to Rs.
I vacate or cease to draw pay in the existing scale
Existing Scale _________________________
Office to which employed ___________
* To be scored out if not applicable
Rule 1: This rule is self-explanatory
Rule 2: This rule lays down the categories of employees to whom the rules apply. Except for the categories excluded under clause (2), the rules are applicable to all persons under the rule making control of the President serving in Departments paid from Civil Estimates. They do not apply to the employees under the Ministry of Railways and Civilian personnel paid from Defence Services Estimates, for whom separate rules will be issued by the Agents in the Department of Posts and Department of Telecommunications. The rules, however, apply to work charged establishments.
Rule 3: This rule is self-explanatory.
Rule 4: The recommendations of the Commission on pay scales for certain categories/class of employees of the Central Government, including Union Terriotries, have given rise to representations from other categories of employees on the ground of upsetting the existing relativities and parities. In all such cases, where the recommendation is for upgradation of pay scales for individual categories of posts in a Department or cadre otherwise than by rationalization of pay scales, for the present the normal replacement pay scales for the existing scales of pay as shown in part A of the First Schedule shall be allowed. Separate orders in such cases will be issued subsequently.
Rule 5: The intention is that all Government servants should be brought over to the revised scale except those who elect to draw pay in the existing scales. Those who exercise the option to continue on the existing scales of pay will continue to draw the dearness allowance and interim reliefs at the rates in force on the 1st January, 1996 and the dearness allowance will count towards the emoluments for pension, etc. to the extent it so counted on the said date. If a Government servant is holding a permanent post in a substantive capacity and officiating in a higher post, or would have officiated in one or more posts but for his being on deputation etc., he has the option to retain the existing scale only in respect of one scale. Such a Government servant may retain the existing scale applicable to a permanent post or any one of the officiating posts. In respect of the remaining posts he will necessarily have to be brought over to the revised scales.
Rule 6: This rule prescribes the manner in which option has to be exercised and also the authority who should be apprised of such option. The option has to be exercised in the appropriate form appended to the rules. It should be noted that it is not sufficient for a Government servant to exercise the option within the specified time limit but also to ensure that it reaches the prescribed authority within the time limit. In the case of persons who are outside India at the time these rules are promulgated, the period within which the option has to be exercised is three months from the date they take over charge of the post in India. In the case of Government servants the revised scales of whose posts are announced subsequent to the date of issue of these rules, the period of three months will run from the date of such announcement.
Persons who have retired between 1st January, 1996 and the date of issue of these rules are also eligible to exercise option.
Rule 7(1) : This rule deals with the actual fixation of pay in the existing scales on 1st January, 1996. A few illustrations indicating the manner in which pay of Government servants should be fixed under this sub-rule subject to stepping up of pay under Notes below rule 7(1) are given below:

Rule 7(2) – The benefit of this rule is not admissible in cases where a Government servant has elected the revised scale in respect of his substantive post, but has retained the existing scale in respect of an officiating post.
Rule 8 – This rule prescribes the manner in which the next increment in the new scale should be regulated. The provisos to this rule are intended to eliminate the anomalies of junior Government servants drawing more pay than their senior by the operation of substantive part of this rule and also taking care of the Government servants who have been drawing pay at the maximum of the existing scale for more than one year as on 1.1.1996 and also those Government servants who have been stagnating at the maximum of the existing scale and are actually in receipt of stagnation increment on ad hoc basis.
Rule 9 to 14 - These rules are self-explanatory.
