7th Pay Commission upgrades Grade Pay for certain cadres / posts

Indian Military Veterans

7th Pay Commission upgrades Grade Pay for certain cadres / posts in among Central Government Employees – Grade Pay for these Posts would be increased before fixation in 7CPC Pay Matrix and new 7th Pay Commission Pay would be granted in the higher pay level applicable to higher grade pay

Higher Grade Pay for certain Posts / Cadres – We all know that 7th Pay Commission has done away with Grade Pay System and introduced a new pay fixation technique which is known as Pay Matrix.
As per the pay fixation method in new pay matrix, pay of an employee will be fixed by horizontally traversing first based on his / her grade pay to find out the column / level. Once the level of the employee is found out then multiplication factor of 2.57 with basic Pay would determine the new 7th Pay Commission Pay of the employee. This pay fixation is termed as “Replacement Scale” by 7th Pay Commission.
While this method applies to most of the cadres / posts in Central Government Service, 7th Pay Commission has observed that certain cadres / Posts, pay has to be upgraded prior to fixation of 7th Pay Commission on the basis of pay anomaly that exists presently or those cadres / posts deserve an high pay on account of their nature of work etc.
Now let us have look at the normal method for pay fixation which is also when grade pay is upgraded by 7th Pay Commission
