A Prologue

This hub was first published on 10th March 2008 with an intention to highlight the anomaly in recommendations made by UGC constituted committee regarding pay package implementation of university/college teachers placed in 'Selection Grade' during 5th CPC implementation. As per the recommendations of 6th CPC, Central Govt. Employees in Rs. 12000-16500 were upgraded to PB IV whereas Committee on teachers pay package recommended Selection Grade teachers for placement in PB III. This hub became the platform for discussion on the same and attracted approx. 8.9K comments and about 0.89 m visitors to this hub. Comments are stored in the comment section for perusal of visitors to this hub. In the end, UGC agreed to request of teachers and placed them in PB IV during implementation of 6th CPC.

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.

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.

Questions & Answers

Question: Is the rationalized entry pay level 10 - 57,700 basic pay or gross salary?

Answer: It is not gross salary as it has to be multiplied by the index of rationalization to calculate gross salary.

Question: What was the center point of discussion at this hub during 6th CPC implementation?

Answer: Placement of 'Selection Grade' teachers in PB IV was the main discussion point because UGC was adamant to place them in PB III.

Manaxa on August 29, 2018:

Muslehul Islam sir u r wrong. U r not loosing ur seniority. I think ur basic as on 31-12-2015 may be 56386 ( BP+GP). So as per Seventh pay ur new basic as on 1-1-2016 was 144912 ( ie. 56386x2.57) . If u add 2016 oct and 2017 oct increment

Your new basic as on 1-7-2018 as per VII pay is 156900

HRA and other allowances are not included in this amount.

Muslehul Islam on August 29, 2018:

I was promoted to associate professor scale of pay on 1st Oct ,2012. My current B.P. is 50820 wid grade pay 9000. But the new pay matrix shows that my basic pay on 1. 1 . 2016 will be 131400 which will be equal to one who was promoted to assoc prof on 1st Jan , 2016. Is not it an anomaly? Where have I lost my seniority of 4 yrs?

Prof. Manaxa,

I sincerely hope you will respond to the query raised. Further the clarification will save many teachers from further

confusions.

Manaxa on August 10, 2018:

Dr. D. Rao u have mentioned that still ugc are following its earlier regulation . But In the revised 2018 UGC egulation the have mentioned like These shall come into force from the date of notification. So those who joined on or after jan 1 2016 or completed phd after dec 2015 they are also eligible and will get phd increment definitely.

Abdul Rashid on August 09, 2018:

Dear Crusader... it seems you are only bothered about the UGC affilitated College Professors, Ass. Professor etc. and nothing to update about AICTE affiliated Engineering Colleges and Polytechnic who are deprived of 7th CPC.... we are not getting any information what happened to the report of Committee constituted by AICTE for Engg. college... so please update us

Dr. Thakur on August 08, 2018:

Agree with tks. Let us not discuss only about pay fixation and ph.d increments. Why are we confused with these issues. Let us fight for revised allowances.

Dr. D Rao on August 08, 2018:

Professor Manaxa

I think nobody will get the PhD increments those who joined after 2016. Because Ugc is still following its earlier regulation regarding PhD increments.But problem will arise once there will be implementation of new 7th Pay commission. Then amount will be withdrawn for those who joined after 2016 according to MHRD notification dated 2nd November .Please make it clear. Thank you

tks on August 07, 2018:

Why FEDCUTA and other associations are silent about revised allowances.

Dr.Alakesh on August 07, 2018:

Please replace the last sentence in my previous post...which goes as... "Please through light..." with "Please throw light on the issue" .

Thanks.

Sorry for the inadvertent mistake.

Dr.Alakesh on August 07, 2018:

Thank You..Prof. Manaxa.,

You have definitly gone through point no.19.1 (iv) (a) at page no. 99 and point no.(xiv) at page no. 101..of The UGC Regulation / Notification dated 18th July 2018. Are there any scope for some other interpretations of the language/ wording used in these points (particularly the words....." three non compounded increments fixed at increment applicable at entry level only....") relating to PhD increments to teachers already in service...??

Please through light..!

Dr.P.Pirabaharan on August 07, 2018:

Babu Rao Basala, Retd. Principal Guntur AP on July 06, 2018:

I request FEDCUTA & other national Teachers' organisations should immediately alert the various States / UTs branches on the wanton delay in implementing 2016 UGC revised scales from Jan 2016 in their respective States/UTs. Indian Higher Edn. Teachers are really great, for , they give priority to their teaching work rather demanding what they deserve. But our sincere efforts & a little persuasion are needed to impress upon the state govts, to issue implementation proceedings, lest the time ahead will slip into election commission's purview and state / UT govts, will be handcuffed. So My dear teachers, you start your efforts by meeting local Legislators to pursue their CMs in this matter. It is an Alert to All India University & College Teachers' Association.

Anony sir, U have mentioned that , in all central universities they have withdrawn the increments from those have completed Ph.d in the year 2016 but joined before 2016 and got Ph.d increment. Is it authentic news sir. K is let it be.

What about the state university status. Still now they have not implemented seventh pay for higher education. Whether any state university have withdrawn withdrawn the increments from those have completed Ph.d in the year 2016 but joined before 2016 and got Ph.d increment. Any news about this

Anony on April 19, 2018:

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.

W.F. Redsen on April 18, 2018:

Pension is entirely different from salary.

R V Srinivasan on April 18, 2018:

There's no mention about pension fixation for retired teachers till now (April 18)

ppirabaharan on April 17, 2018:

Absolutely correct RTM sir,

The incentive rules of Ph.D only after the State government implements dates.Those who are all joined before Jan 2016 should eligible to get Ph.D incentives.

RTM on April 17, 2018:

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.

Anony on April 17, 2018:

No Increment to the teachers who joined before 1/1/2016 and awarded Ph D After 1/1/2017given date. All increments after 1/1/2016 is withdrawn becoz the Ph D is done after 1 Jan 2016.

RTM on April 17, 2018:

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.

Babu Rao Basala Guntur AP on April 17, 2018:
