The proposal of MOD regarding stepping up of pay of Assistant Accounts Officers of Defence Accounts Department at par with directly recruited SAS Apprentices has been further examined in the Department of Expenditure. This Department agrees to the stepping up of pay of the promotee AAOs at par with the directly recruited SAS Apprentices subject to the following conditions:
(a) Stepping up of the pay of seniors can be claimed only in the case of those cadres which have an element of direct recruitment and in cases where a directly recruited junior is actually drawing more basic pay than the seniors. In such cases, the basic pay of the seniors will be stepped up with reference to the pay of the directly recruited junior provided they belong to the same seniority list for all purposes.
(b) Govt. servants cannot claim stepping up of their revised basic pay with reference to entry pay in the revised structure for direct recruits appointed on or after 1.1.2006, as laid down in Section II of Part A of the First Schedule to the CCS(RP) Rules, 2008, if their cadre does not have an element of direct recruit or in cases where no junior is drawing basic pay higher than them.
(c) Stepping up of pay of the seniors shall not be applicable in cases where direct recruits have been granted advance increments at the time of recruitment.
