An overview about Central Government Employees’ Increment
Until then, increments were given in the form of a consolidated amount. The 6th CPC recommended that it be calculated on percentage basis. The Central Government ordered that it be calculated at 3% of the employee’s basic pay with effect from 1.1.2006.The CG employees didn’t realize how useful this was going to be. They thought it wouldn’t amount for much. It was Rs.75 for Rs. 3050 and revised to Rs. 210 for Rs.7000 with simple calculation.
On the basis of the 6th CPC :
|‘A’ Employee||GP||BP||BP||‘B’ Employee||GP||BP||BP|
On the basis of the 5th CPC :
|‘B’ Employee||BP||Inc.||‘A’ Employee||BP||Inc.|
[BP-Basic Pay, Inc.-Increment, GP-Grade Pay, BP-Pay in Pay Band]
Can you understand the difference now?
In 6th CPC the difference between ‘A’ and ‘B’ will be Rs.70 only, whereas in 5th CPC it will be Rs.300.
The Junior doesn’t have to worry that the senior has a tremendous advantage over him. In the past, the Junior wouldn’t be able to attain the Senior’s basic pay until retirement.
