The Department of Posts vide its letter No. 1-9/2010-PCC (Pt) dt. 14.09.2010 has provided stepping up of pay of senior direct recruited official with that of junior direct recruited official.
(i) Direct recruits like Postman, PA who are appointed prior to 1.1.2006 and gets lesser pay than Direct recruits, they are entitled to step up their pay with that of junior.
(ii) This is not applicable to compare promotees with Direct recruitees.
The Department’s order has partially sorted out the issue. The main issue that minimum pay in the cadre applicable for direct recruits be applied for promotes also is still pending in JCM National Council level.
Let us hope for that also.
