Other levels are 11, 12, 13A, 14 and 15. Fitment factor or Index of Rationalization is 2.67 for AGP less than Rs.10,000 and 2.72 for the AGP of Rs 10,000 and above.
- The pay matrix is shown in the table shown below in the snap.
- On January 1, 2016, the existing pay (Existing Pay in Pay Band + AGP0 in the pre-revised pay as on 31st December, 2015 shall be multiplied by a factor of 2.57. The figure (product so arrived) is to be located in the Academic Level (corresponding to pay band and AGP in the new Pay Matrix. Equal or next higher cell in the Academic Level (if equal is not available) shall be the revised pay. In case figure arrived is less than the first cell then pay shall be fixed in the 1st Cell of that Academic Level.
- If more than two stages are bunched together, one additional increment (3%) may be given for every two stages bunched.

Whenever an employee gets a promotion, he would be given a notional increment in his existing Academic Level of Pay (moving to next higher cell) and the pay in the cell be located in the new Academic Level to corresponding post (promoted one).
Important change as per 7th CPC is that there shall be two dates for grant of increment namely, First January and first July of every year. Earlier there was a single date for grant of increment ( First July).However, increment date will depend on the date of appointment, promotion or grant of financial up-gradation.Rate of increment is 3 percent. Annual increment is given in the pay matrix table.
