Innovative Pay Matrix Table for Central Government Employees
7th Central Pay Commission Recommended an innovative pay hierarchy table for all group of Central Government Employees with effect from 1.1.2016
The Seventh Central Pay Commission has recommended the new Pay Matrix Table for Central Government employees and officers. This structure has been laid out by large broadly as an open ended, layered matrix, for Civilian Employees as well as for the Armed Forces Personnel. It has been kept in view that a person should not stagnate but should have fair opportunity to progress by dint of merit and secure better emoluments so that frustration does not set in. The prevailing rate of increment is considered quite satisfactory and has been retained. The concept of separate grade pay has been done away with and the grade pay at all levels has been subsumed into the pay matrix.
The new Pay Matrix Table, which is simple, transparent, predictable and easily comprehensible and incorporates all these features: subsuming the grade pay, the rationalized matrix presents the whole universe of pay levels in one simple chart. The levels have been rationalized too, displaying a logical pay progression. Employees would be able to see their pay level, where they fit in and how they are likely to progress over their career span. The Commission has also recommended simplified procedures for computation of pension.
The new pay structure has been devised in the form of a pay matrix to provide complete transparency regarding pay progression.
Prior to VI CPC, there were Pay Scales. The VI CPC had recommended running Pay Bands with Grade Pay as status determiner. The Seventh CPC recommended a Pay matrix with distinct Pay Levels. The Level would henceforth be the status determiner.
The pay matrix comprises two dimensions. It has a “horizontal range” in which each level corresponds to a ‘functional role in the hierarchy’ and has been assigned the numbers 1, 2, and 3 and so on till 18. The “vertical range” for each level denotes ‘pay progression’ within that level. These indicate the steps of annual financial progression of three percent within each level.
