Pay Matrix Table for MNS Officers
Military Nursing Service (MNS) Officers Pay Matrix recommended by 7th Pay Commission
According to the 7th CPC report, the minimum salary (basic pay) of Military Service Officers (MNS) is Rs. 56100 per month. And the pay level fixed at 10. In the 6th CPC pay scale structure, the above officer’s pay scale was in the Pay Band – 4 (15600 – 39100) Grade Pay 5400.
The following Pay matrix for Military Nursing Service (MNS) Officers is recommended by the Commission:
Minimum Pay for a Rank in MNS= (Minimum Pay for that Rank in Defence Pay Matrix) x (Grade Pay of the Rank in MNS) / (Grade Pay of that Rank in the Services)
For example Minimum Pay for Colonel in MNS= (125,700) x (7600) / (8700) = Rs. 1,09,807. This has been approximated to Rs. 1,09,800 in the pay matrix level 12. While this formulation has been adopted for all ranks of MNS officers, two exceptions have been made for purposes of rationalising the pay structure:
|15600 – 39100|
As indicated earlier in the case of the Defence Pay Matrix, the Commission has adopted an approach that blends elements of the principles and philosophy adopted in devising the matrices for civil and defence forces personnel with the existing uniqueness in the pay structure of MNS officers.
Therefore while the minimum pay at the entry level for MNS officers is identical with their civil and defence counterparts, as is the application of the fitment in pay for officers migrating into the matrix, the Commission has had to adopt a different approach while determining minimum pay corresponding to the existing grade pays other than GP 5400 (PB-3). In doing so, the Commission has adopted a formulation as under:
i. In the case of Captains, the Commission has moderated the minimum pay level upwards to Rs. 59,00017, to avoid bunching of minimum pay of MNS Lieutenant and Captain.
ii. In the case of Brigadiers some moderation downwards from the figure arrived at by the formula (Rs. 1,26,800) has been effected to provide suitable differential in the minimum of the pay level between Brigadier and Major General of MNS. Hence the mid-point of the minimum of the pay levels of Colonel and Major General viz., Rs. 1,19,700 has been taken as the minimum pay for the Brigadier of MNS.
