Agenda Items for NAC Meeting : Grant of GP 5400 to Senior Section Officer of Railways & AAOs of IA&AD
Item No 14 : Grant of GP 5400 to Senior Section Officer of Railways & AAOs of IA&AD and organised Accounts (Civil Accounts, Postal Accounts and Defence Accounts)
In Para 11.40.83 of its report, the 7 CPC has recommended the following:
“in line with our recommendations for organised Accounts Cadres, it is further recommend that the employees in Grade Pay 4800 should be upgraded on completion of 4 years’ service, to the existing GP 5400 (PB-2) VIZ., Level 9 in the Pay Matrix, on non functional basis”.
Under the sub-heading “Organised Accounts Staff” the 7 CPC has recommended the following:
“11.12.40 The Commission is therefore of the view that there is no justification for excluding officers in the organised accounting departments who ate at GP 4800 from this dispensation. It therefore recommends that all officers in organised accounts cadres (in the Indian Audit and Accounts
Department, Defence Accounts Department, Idnian Civil Accounts organization, Railways, Posts and Telecommunications) who are in GP 4800 should be upgraded, on completion of four years’ service to GP 5400 (PB-2), viz., Pay Level 9, in the pay matrix”.
The non implementation of this recommendation disturbed the horizontal relativity between the pay scales SSO of Railways and AAOs in Organised Accounts and IA&AD and Section Officers of CSS and other Gr. B Gazetted officers.
This recommendation of the 7 CPC has not been implemented yet, leading to an anomalous situation which may be resolved without delay.
