Pay Fixation Method (7th CPC)

  • In the new system as per 7th CPC, concept of academic pay and pay band is changed to Academic level and Cells. The first academic level (Corresponding to AGP of Rs 6000) is numbered as AL 10. 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.

To understand 7th pay fixation in better way, please visit Gazette notification on the acceptance ... of employees.


UGC 7CPC PAY MATRIX
UGC 7CPC PAY MATRIX

Promotion

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).

Increment

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.

Pl. give your opinion clicking the correct option

Are you satisfied with the approved package (Same as shown in the snapshot above)?

      What about the state university status. Still now they have not implemented seventh pay for higher education.

      Not at all RTM. as you have not acquired the Ph.D. degree in the last pay commission then how are you expecting your Ph.D. increments to get after 1/1/ 2016. It is already withdrawn in all the Central universities w.e.f. from 1/1/2016. If ur Ph.D. is awarded after 1 Jan, 2016 then your Ph.D. will be withdrawn because you failed to submit in the last pay commission course of time. In fact you may enquire it from the teachers who are working in the Central universities.

      How can they withdraw the increment from the staff who joined before 2016 but completed phd after 2016 Anony. Becaz When sixth pay implemented , 6th pay recommend eligibility for assistant professor was Phd . 6th pay implemented effect from 1.1.2006. But Tamilnadu government implemented 6th pay on oct 2009. But lot of assistant professor joined in government colleges in the period of 2006 to sep 2009 in M.phil qualification(as per 5th pay). But the tamilnadu government follow the 6th pay eligibility after oct 2009 only( ie after the implementation date) . Now our phd incentive also having the same situation as 2006. Then they should implement the phd incentives rules only after the State government implements dates.

      I think in Central universities they have already implemented seventh pay commission for teaching faculty. Whether they have given Ph.d incentives for faculty who joined in service before 2016 but completed Ph.d after 2016. . If anybody knows authenticall information about such cases pls reply .

      Because Tamilnadu government still not implemented seventh pay for college teachers. Here lot of teachers who joined before 2016 but compled their Ph.d in 2016 got Ph.d increments in 2016 it self . But when the state implements seventh pay for them , what about their status whether the government cut and recover their Ph.d incentives or as they joined before 2016 they are eligible for Ph.d incentives what they already got.

      One who appointed before 1.1.2016 the pay is multiplied by the factor 2.57 including Ph.D. incentives.

      One who joined after 1.1.2016 the pay is fixed as 57700 whether he has Ph.D. or not. This is UGC New pay guidelines.

      The previous revision stressed the removal of stagnation but the latest revision will compel many of our colleagues to stagnate at an early stage,I mean, after earning merely four or five increments.In my opinion, there shouldn't be any upper limit for the same.

      2006 UGC notification permitted 10% of teachers working in UG colleges to be placed in Professor[AGP 10K] grade with all required qualifications. In such a case how can the Head of the UG college Principal be placed in AGP 9000 equivalent pay matrix starts at 1,31,400 as his sub-ordinate Professor's 2016 UGC pay starts at 1,44,200. So the Principals of UG/PG & Professor scale should alike in 2016 UGC revised pay scales. If the UG/PG college Principal post is filled on rotation, the Professors working at both places be made Heads of the Institutions, dispensing with the much practiced Seniority procedure, which again becomes violation of fundamental right. In UG Colleges rotation of Principal post is detrimental to the interest of the degree colleges, with regards to discipline(as +2 stage students just join here), work culture, accountability, enforcing rules & finally achieving set goals.

      Babu Rao Basala Guntur AP 2 weeks ago

      The revised 2016 UGC pay scales notification needs rectification, of course to be carried out by State Govts/UTs, since the education in India is in Concurrent list of our constitution with the adoption of the 42 Amendment to the Constitution in 1976. the UGC notification degraded the UG Principal status by placing it in equivalent pay matrix of AGP 9000, instead of placing it on par with AGP 10000. It is a concern to the UG Principals, who have been placed in AGP 10000 on regularization as Principal even before 1-1-2016. Hence the State Govts/UTs should exercise their Legitimate Constitutional Right and continue the UG college Principal Status by treating it equivalent to PG College Principal envisaged in 2016 UGC pay revision. Moreover All the Teaching Posts whether they are in UG Colleges or in PG colleges, are NOW treated alike as Asst. Prof, Asso.Prof, & Prof. in UGC notification. So the Difference shown between UG Principal & PG Principal is REDUNDANT, both should be placed in equivalent May Matrix of AGP 10000, by Not Disturbing the present structure of pay scale of UG college Principal.

      No orders were issued for pensioners to get benefit of 7th CPC. After issuing orders on 2-11-2017 for the presently working University Teachers, it is now (27th Mar 2018) 5 months have lapsed, but orders were not issued for pensioners. Why this disparity? Pay and Pension are treated on par for paying income tax. Pension is considered as deferred pay as promulgated by Supreme Court. But there is a long wait for the pensioners to get the benefits of 7th CPC. The chain is also too long. MHRD will send orders to UGC. Then UGC will send to State Governments. then the State Govts will send to concerned Universities. Then the Universities will issue orders. The financial crunch will come in the way of implementation at any point while passing through the above chain

      Dear UGC Teaching Fraternity....., Its time to reinvigorate, stand steadfast, unite as one....to demand immediate implementation of 2016 UGC scales in all States/UTs. If we miss this opportunity, just before General Elections, no politician or bureaucrat shall look into our just demand. So UGC Working /Retired Teachers across the country should leave their inhibitions at-once, form at-least as 10 member group, should meet their MLAs of their respective States/UTs and see that our pleading is forwarded to the Chief Ministers for immediate implementation. There shall not be any consideration or proffer or benefaction by any Govt., unless and until people demand forcefully to redeem their just requisition.

The ensuing General Elections in the country shall forcibly make Politicians heed & accede our demand.

      If we dont talk about Ph.D. inrements here, then where can we?

      So there should be unity amoung indian teachers, when delay in revised pay.

      But, When it comes to increment, some of senior prof. say that there is no increment needed. "How come SOME senior prof expect to be united when you are not in the position to support newly joined assistant prof. for their increment.

      Therefore the the rule according to some senior prof, who already getting increments as follows, "ëverybody should be united (including those who are not going to get increment) to get revised pay, After that we (Some super senior prof who aginst giving increments) will not support newly joined Assistant Prof. for their increments".

      You are right Prof tk... As implementation is delayed, this discussion ensued. Let's continue to share our views, since our views shall not alter already approved frames of 2016 UGC RPS. Its only a means of solace, we seek in, for abnormal delay in implementation. We Teachers love, respect fellow Teachers. Long live Unity among Indian Teachers. Certain anomalies should be addressed by the UGC before actual implementation process starts.

      We the teachers are famous to find fault with other teachers, know all ugc rules. But ever we think that nobody can be in a permanent position in college.. university before attending 30 years of age and struggling for PhD degree on ground. On contrary, in research labs, a msc or btech fellow joins as scientist and going up without publishing even a single paper. They get pay commission effect in time whereas professors? Hence PhD increment is logical or not may not be decided by beourocrats but a few senior professors whose careers are over, enjoyed whatever. How they will come to know mental agony of new professorial cadre. PhD before 2006 and after 2016 will not get anything but completed between 2/06 to 2016 got some increments. Now everybody will be deprived in getting any incentive. PhD should be mandatory for scientists. But funny part is this highest qualification is now mandatory for college teachers and research to be done by teachers in addition to their regular teaching assignments. But scientists will enjoy various incentives. Great..

      What I understand is..the correspondents are Not against Govt. sanctioning Ph.D increments, but the rule position in RPS2016 UGC scales is explicit derivative effort made by them. PhD degree holders deserve special incentives, but it is made Qualifying border line for placements in Degree colleges/Universities by UGC, hence this discussion.

      Correct, so therefore those who are saying no special increments needed for Ph.D,, will give back the increments which they received until now to govt. also they will request govt to stop their special increments which they are receiving for their Ph.D. (Our Point here is the rule should be same for every one. What I can see here is those who are getting increments saying that increment is not needed, it is no good, it shows how matured their mind is. FYI I am already getting increments and I wish it to be continued for everyone)

I request the UGC should at-once conduct Crash Refresher Programs in ENGLISH to 'improve the higher education teachers' teaching ability/expression' to All HE College/University teachers across the country By Retired English Lecturers & Professors. This could give face lift to HE Teachers & avert the disaster of Indian students making fun of their own teachers in very near future.

      *DUTA Press Release; 8 February 2018*

      *Teachers and karamcharis "Halla Bol" at the UGC against the negative recommendations of 7th Pay Revision*

      More than four thousand teachers and karmacharis marched from Feroz Shah Kotla to the UGC today while the meeting of the full Commission was taking place. Protesting against the negative recommendations of 7th Pay Revision Notification, the vibrant DUTA-DUCKU programme reflected the dismay and the anguish of the university community about the implications of the funding formula by which the universities are being forced to generate resources to the tune of at least 30%.

      Teachers and Representatives of Jamia Teachers’ Association (Prof. Musheer Ahmad, President, and Dr. Veermani, Joint Secretary), IGNOUTA (Prof. C R K Murthy, President) and Aligarh Muslim University Teachers’ Association (Prof. Mujahid Baig, President). Many students also joined the protest in solidarity with their teachers and against the fee hike which may result from the recent Government policies. 

      Teachers and karamcharis are anguished about the delay in disbursement of revised salaries as per the 7th Pay Revision. There is a growing fear it may get further delayed because of the 30-70% funding formula notified by the MHRD.  As per the MHRD Office Memorandum (13.01.2017), the Central Universities are supposed to get only 70% of the enhanced financial burden on account of the Pay Revision, the rest to be met by the Universities through self-generation of resources. This is an unprecedented attack on the character of the public-funded institutions as it threatens to reduce funds to institutions of higher learning. Also State Universities have been allocated only 50% of Central assistance and that too for a reduced period of 39 months, i.e. till 31.03.2019, as opposed to the Central assistance of 80% for 51 months in the last pay revision. Withdrawal of public funding will push the burden of maintaining Central and State Universities on students, it will increase the expenditure of parents and students towards education manifold. Exponential fee hike will push a large section of students out of higher education. 

      The negative recommendations of 7th Pay Revision Notification have pushed teachers on a war-path. Withdrawal of advance increments for MPhil/ PhD will affect the career progression of teachers who will join the profession late but with higher qualifications. The glaring anomalies of the last pay revision have not been addressed, resulting in downgrading of Assistant Professors at every level. The pay revision has created a situation of compulsory stagnation for all senior teachers, including Associate Professors, Professors and Principals very soon. The fitment formula for incumbent teachers on 1.1.2016 is retained at 2.57 which amounts to a measly 14.27% increase: the lowest in independent India. This is starkly in contrast to the last two pay revisions where the minimum increase across all categories of teachers was 40% in basic pay.  Allowances for teachers have been delinked from Central Govt employees and the MHRD notification stipulates that till the Ministry of Finance decides on the revised allowances of teachers, all allowances will be paid according to the pre-revised pay structure. Also, it is shocking that the MHRD notification contains no reference to the revised pension benefits for teachers in accordance to the provisions of the 7th Pay Revision. 

      It is also the first time that the report of the Pay Review Committee was kept in complete secrecy. The DUTA could get a copy of Chauhan Committee Report only recently through an RTI filed by a faculty member. However, even without making it public the Government had already set up another committee to look into the service conditions and it is not clear what the Government intends to do with promotional avenues for teachers. Teachers across the country have been denied promotions for the past 10 years because of the irrational API. Nothing short of a complete Roll Back of the API which has led to dilution of academic standards and downgraded teaching is acceptable. The retrospective implementation of API in Delhi University must be addressed and the issue of the counting of past services must be settled.

      The Budget speech of the Finance Minister of 1st February made it clear that the policy thrust will be on commercialisation of Higher Education, turning public funded institutions of repute into teaching shops and replacing grants with loans for creating infrastructure. While the budget allocation to schemes like Higher Education Funding Agency (HEFA) and Institute of Excellence has increased manifold, the budget allocations to the UGC, IITS, IIMs and RUSA have either been reduced or have remained stagnant. Teachers are exercised about the fact that the budget allocation to the UGC does not reflect the additional expenses required for implementing the 7th Pay Revision.

      The DUTA will use now mobilise intensively amongst students and parents. The DUTA-DUCKU have now given a call of a Joint Rally from Mandi House to Parliament Street on 16 February, 2018. The DUTA has started inviting students and students' organisations to join the movement. The DUTA will also mobilise Members of Parliament for the 16 February Rally. The DUTA warns the Government against anti-people education policies and negative service conditions.

      chairman sir,

      It is requested to release the 7th pay aicte pay scales at the earliest as UGC is already published gezette Notification for university college lecturers.How many days to require to publish the notification, every time when pay commission constituted only AICTE college lecturers will get last birth, why not the same can not be taken in to consideration at a time with central employees. Almost two years completed still they are playing and waiting for some more times.

      Some people are just playing with the emotions of newly appointed teachers...specifically those who were appointed after 1/1/2016 and are concerned with their Ph.D increments. Let us be responsible...pls don't post comments which are baseless or are not backed by logic. Further perhaps we need to wait till the UGC's detailed notification on revised pay.

      Hello Prof Rigzuu

      Kindly don't give the wrong calculation.. for example : What about T.A. ??? How do u calculate without knowing X,y or z category ??? Strange.. wait till the detailed notification is not displayed.. all the wrong information you are giving to the teachers. For eg: withdrawal of 5 increments already given to the teachers who joined after 1/1/2016. There is never retrospective effect. Kindly read the rules and speak with the evidence. I am not here to hurt your feelings but u r surely playing with the others..

      Thanks and regards

      Anony
