Various Types of Pay Matrix Table for Government Employees
7th Central Pay Commission recommended new and innovative pay structure table for all group of Central Government employees including Defence Personnel in its report. The table called as “Pay Matrix Table”.
The Pay Matrix Table comprises two dimensions. It has a “horizontal range” in which each level corresponds to a ‘functional role in the hierarchy’ and has been assigned the numbers 1, 2, and 3 and so on till 18. The “vertical range” for each level denotes ‘pay progression’ within that level. The minimum pay starts with 18000 and maximum pay is 250000.
The fitment in the new matrix is essentially a multiple factor of 2.57. This multiple is the ratio of the new minimum pay arrived at by the Commission (₹18,000) and the existing minimum pay (₹7,000). The fitment factor is being applied uniformly to all employees. It includes a factor of 2.25 to account for DA neutralisation, assuming that the rate of Dearness Allowance would be 125 percent at the time of implementation of the new pay as on 01.01.2016. The actual raise/fitment being recommended by the Commission is 14.29 percent. An identical fitment of 2.57 has also been applied to the existing rates of Military Service Pay (MSP), applicable to defence forces personnel only. The Pay Matrix Table for all group of CG Employees and Officers. To fix the pay and fix the pay on promotion or MACP and also calculate increment with the help of Pay Matrix Table very easily, no need of any calculation.
