17. PAY FIXATION in the New Pay Structure:
5.1.28 The fitment of each employee in the new pay matrix is proposed to be done by multiplying his/her basic pay on the date of implementation by a factor of 2.57. The figure so arrived at is to be located in the new pay matrix, in the level that corresponds to the employee Grrade pay on the date of implementation., except in cases where the Commission has recommended a change in the existing grade pay. If the identical figure is not available in the given level, the next higher figure closest to it would be the new pay of the concerned employee. A couple of examples are detailed below to make the process amply clear.
5.1.29 The pay in the new pay matrix is to be fixed in the following manner:
Step 1: Identify Basic Pay (Pay in the pay band plus Grade Pay) drawn by an employee as on the date of implementation. This figure is ‘A’.
Step 2: Multiply ‘A’ with 2.57, round-off to the nearest rupee, and obtain result ‘B’.
Step 3: The figure so arrived at, i.e., ‘B’ or the next higher figure closest to it in the Level assigned to his/her grade pay, will be the new pay in the new pay matrix. In case the value of ‘B’ is less than the starting pay of the Level, then the pay will be equal to the starting pay of that level.
For example if the Pay including GP is Rs. 27410/- at present, new basic will be Rs. 71,300/- i.e. 27410 x 2.57. Thge basic will be arrived at as per the nearest value in Matrix Table 5.
Total Gross Pay if working in Hyderabad will be 71300 + 17112 + 7200 = Rs. 95612/- (HRS 24% and TA 7400 in Hyderabad)
DA from January will nbe zero as total DA as on 1-1-206 @ 12% will be subsumed into new pay. DA will start from July,16.
