reducing basic pay on promotion


Sir, I was a retired employee of a PSU. During June, 2014 I was a non-executive drawing a basic pay of Rs.36850/-. During July, 2014, I was promoted to Supervisory Scale and my basic pay was reduced to Rs.22030/-, due to which I was under huge loss in the form of PF, Gratuity etc., I would like to know, whether there is a provision to reduce basic pay of an employee on promotion? Please clarify, Regards, MNM

Retired employee.

This is the first time I am hearing of such anomaly, in other organisations, while promoting, a minimum prescribed amount will be added to the existing basic pay being paid to employee, and adding this minimum amount in basic, new basic on promoted scale has to be fixed.  I am afraid whether you can raise the issue after retirement of such a long gap. However, you can file RTI Application seeking information of such rules and regulations from PSU and file a writ before HC.

 

Brief facts: During June, 2014 ..............................designation was a non-executive working at.........drawing a basic pay of Rs.36850/-. During July, 2014, later promoted to Supervisory Scale with designation of....................working at  ............ ,.  The basic pay was reduced to Rs.22030/-, due to which there was r huge loss in the form of PF, Gratuity etc

 

Information solicited:

1. Please provide  certified copies of

a) rules and regulations that state that basic pay has to be reduced after promotion

or that laid down norms for fixing basic pay on promotion without protecting the existing basic pay before promotion

and

b) calculation sheet arrived for fixing basic on promotion

Ji,   I think it is unbelievable.  I am first time hearing from you that your pay is reduced on promotion is absurd.  I think some mistake has been done.  Obtain for such gap in pay, on promotion to a higher post from the concerned authority under RTI.

Yes,facts posted are unconvincing. Is there actual reduction of emoluments because of the pay fixation?

If you continue in the same company, it can not be. You can give representation on such anamollies and redressal (or) consult a local lawyer specialized on service matters to guide you correctly to protect your interest.

Retired employee.

1. All that information that is available in material form in custody of Public information officer, unless specifically exempted must be provided under RTI.

2. However as rules and regulations are being uploaded in the website, they are not in custody of PIO and information need not be given on those uploaded materials.

3. Certified copies are that form of information available in the website and can be sought by citizens from PIO under RTI.

4. As certified copies are legally valid documents and duly authenticated, it is always proper to obtain from PIO.
