The Pay and Accounts Officer,
Sub: Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017 – Fixation of Pay with reference to Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017 – Certain clarification – Regarding.
Ref: 1. G.O.Ms.No.303, Finance (Pay Cell) Department, dated:11-10-2017.
2. From the PAO (SECT) / BAS.II / UNIT / 2017, dated:10-11-2017.
I am to invite your attention to the references cited.
2. As per para—8 and Rule—6 of the Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017, the existing employees are permitted to migrate to the revised pay structure on the following dates:
i. With effect from 01-01-2016.
ii. To continue to draw pay in the existing pay structure until the date on which the employees / officers earns his / her next or subsequent increment in the revised pay structure.
iii. From the date of promotion between 01-01-2016 and the date of notification (i.e. 11-10-2017).
3. In para—7 and Rule 7 of the Tamil Nadu Revised Pay Rules, 2017 it is ordered that the Pay plus Grade Pay of an employee at any level as on 01-01-2016 should be multiplied by a factor of 2.57 for the purpose of fixing the pay in the Pay Matrix.
4. In the example brought to the notice of Government it is seen that the Self-Drawing Officers have opted to migrate to revised pay structure with effect from 01-01-2016 by taking into consideration the pay drawn as on 31-12-2015 and requested to allow their next increment on 01-01-2016 in the revised pay structure. In the instant case, if this employee opts to come over to the revised pay structure on 01-01-2016 and seeks sanction of annual increment in the revised pay structure as on 01-01-2016, then in such case the pay drawn by the employee as on 31-12-2015 should alone be taken into account for purpose of migrating to the revised pay structure. I am therefore to clarify that the pay fixed as per option-2 is beneficial to the employee than option-1 pointed out in your letter. Hence the pay of such employees may be fixed as per option 2.
