Classification of Posts in 7th Pay Commission
Persons in Position in Terms of Categories: Groups A, B and C
All Central Government civil posts of the Union are categorised under the Central Civil Services (Classification, Control and Appeal) Rules, 1965. There are currently three categories of Central Government personnel–Group `A’, Group `B’ and Group `C’. This categorisation is made by the government based on the pay band and grade pay or the pay scales as applicable.
The data provided by the ministries/departments is consolidated in terms of the three categories of personnel as per Table 4.
ii. While 89 percent of civilian Central Government personnel are in Group `C’, the Railways, Department of Posts and MHA have a significantly higher proportion in Group `C’ at 99 percent, 96 percent and 92 percent respectively.
iii. Scientific and technical focused ministries/departments have a high percentage of Group `A’ Officers.
The Ministry-wise particulars of composition of personnel in terms of Group `A’, `B’ and `C’ are detailed in Annex 4.
The Commission notes that in addition to details on composition of personnel in terms of the Group `A’, `B’ and `C’ it would be useful, both for purposes of management information and decision making, if reliable data on personnel in terms of job families is collected.
7th CPC Classification of Posts : Classification of Posts :There is no special recommendation on classification of posts in Central Government services.
Classification of Posts as per 5th and 6th CPC :- Grouping of Posts
In 6th CPC Group ‘D’ employees are upgraded to Group ‘C’ with effect from 1.1.2006.
‘Grade Pay Structure’ was introduced in 6th CPC.
The minimum Grade pay of Rs.1300 was recommended by the committee, but Central Government had decided to upgrade all the employees working in Group ‘D’ to Group ‘C’.
We hope the same hierarchy of Grouping of posts may continue in 7th Central Pay Commission…
