FIXATION OF PAY UNDER TAMIL NADU REVISES PAY RULES, 2017 :
(1) In order to facilitate a smooth and systematic fixation of pay, a proforma for the purpose (Statement of Fixation of Pay) is enclosed at Appendix-II. The statement of fixation of pay in revised pay structure as per the Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017 be prepared in triplicate and one copy thereof be placed in the Service Book of the employee concerned and another copy made available to the concerned accounting authority [Accountant General / Pay and Accounts Officer / Treasury Officer / Sub-Treasury Officer] for post-check.
(2) The Commissioner of Treasuries and Accounts shall issue the instructions to the concerned authority to check the correctness of the fixation of pay in the revised pay structure and ensure the fixation of pay in order as per the Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017. All the particulars in the Statement of fixation of pay shall be entered in the e-Payroll and the consolidated data of the all the employees shall be handed over to the Finance Department on or before 1-1-2018.
(3) The statement of fixation of pay in respect of Government employees drawing pay in the Level-26 and above shall be fixed by the Pay and Accounts Officer / Treasury Officers / Sub-Treasury Officers / Accountant General as the case may be in the proforma given in Appendix-II based on the option exercised by such employees and pay slips issued. In respect of other employees, the Heads of Offices shall fix the pay in the new pay structure without consultation of the Accountant General or the Pay and Accounts Officer or Treasury Officer in the proforma given in Appendix-II and a copy thereof shall, however, be sent along with the pay bill for claiming the emoluments in the revised pay structure to the Pay and Accounts Officer / Treasury Officer / Sub-Treasury Officer for post-audit. The requirement of pre-check of pay fixation having been dispensed with, it is not unlikely that the fixation of pay due in some cases may be computed incorrectly leading to over payments that might have to be recovered subsequently. Therefore, the Drawing and Disbursing Officers should make it clear to the employees under their administrative control, while disbursing the revised pay; that the payments are being made subject to adjustment from amounts that may be due to them subsequently should any discrepancies be noticed later. For this purpose, an undertaking as prescribed as per a “Form of Option” under Rule 6(2) of the Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017 shall be obtained in writing from every employee at the time of exercising option under Rules 6(2) thereof.
(4) All the Administrative Department of Secretariat / Heads of Department / Head of Offices are directed to issue necessary instructions to all the Drawing and Disbursing Officers under their control to claim the revised pay forthwith based on the Proceedings / Orders issued by the Pay Fixation Authorities duly fixing the pay of the employees in the revised pay structure and make payment in the revised pay structure.
FIXATION OF REVISED PAY / PENSION IN RESPECT OF EMPLOYEES DRAWING HIGHER PAY BASED ON COURT ORDERS:
Pay revision / pension revision in respect of employees in the categories drawing higher pay scales / pension by virtue of court cases pending in High Court / Supreme Court shall be issued separately.
Amendments to Fundamental Rules and Tamil Nadu Special Pay and Allowances Rules shall be notified separately.
