I am directed to refer to your office letter No. A&P/Step-up/PGC/04 dated 11/23.8.2010 and 15.10.2010 on the subject cited above and to intimate that the issue has been examined in this Directorate, a number of times and necessary clarifications/instructions have been issued from time to time. The last such clarifications have recently been issued vide this Directorate letter of even No. dated 03-09-2010 (Copy enclosed for ready reference). All such cases may kindly be dealt with in accordance with these instructions and clarifications which inter-alia clearly envisage that the placement of officials in next higher scale/grade of pay are merely financial upgradations, granted to the officials on completion of 16 years and 26 years of qualifying services, respectively and not on the basis of their seniority. These financial upgradations are personal to the officials concerned and no stepping up of pay of the senior is admissible and/ or placement of the seniors at par with their juniors promoted under TBOP/BCR scheme is not permissible, in any case.
2. It is also informed that such issues, if any should first be taken up with the Circle Office concerned, who may examine the issue and decide /dispose it off the same at their end itself or may take up the matter with this Directorate, if required.
This issues with the approval of the Competent Authority.
