I am working in a UP state govt. engineering institute (HBTI Kanpur) as associate professor from 02 years with a scale pay (PB-4) Rs. 37400-67000/-, 9000 AGP. Before that I was working as assistant professor in pay scale 12000-18000 (pre revised). In nov. 2010 I was selected as Assistant Professor in IIT Roorkee (Central govt.). They fixed/offered me PB-3 with Basic 30000/- + 8000 AGP+three non compounded increments. There is difference of Approx. 10000 in gross salary in my current post and new post.
When I took up my grievance, the authorities say pay protection will not be given. They are saying, I should negotiate at the time of interview. At the time of interview I presented my old pay scale (PB-4) and requested to fix me as per rules, in writing.
Now, They are saying “you will be placed in PB-4 after three years”. I have already completed three years as Assistant Professor in pay scale 12000-18000 (pre revised). They have counted this experience. Therefore I should be placed in PB-4 now.
I heard the pay protection is applicable to govt employee, joining central govt. service from another state/central govt. department/institution. Can any legal professionals help me to find the truth. Does the law protect only the govt. servants like my case? Is there any precedence or court ruling? Hope I would get help from this respected forum.
Is it will be protection of basic or gross pay.
for any further info. required pl mail me.
Thanks and regards
