According to the consolidated instructions released by the Department of Personnel and Training, the following are the five most significant points surrounding the yearly salary increment for Central Government Employees (DoPT)

1. Counting of the specific period for increment

According to the document provided by the DoPT, if a person has been selected for a regular appointment and before formally taking over charge of the post for which selected the person is required to undergo training, the training period that is endured by him or her may be treated as duty for the purpose of drawing increments. This applies only if the Central Government Employee is required to undergo training before formally taking over charge of the post for which selected. This holds true regardless of whether or not the aforementioned person was receiving a stipend or other form of financial support.

2. Increment while on Leave

According to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), "if the normal date of increment of a Government servant falls during a period when he remains on Earned Leave/Commuted Leave/Half Pay Leave/Leave not due, the benefit of such increment is actually paid to him only from the date he joins duty on expiry of leave, though the actual date of next increment remains unaffected." This provision applies only if the normal date of increment of a Central Government Employee falls during a period when he remains on Earned Leave/Commuted Leave/Half Pay Leave/Leave not due.

3. Increment, in case of death while on Leave

According to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), a lump-sum ex-gratia payment, in addition to the normal entitlements under leave, may be allowed to a member of the family in the event that a servant passes away while on any kind of leave for which leave salary is payable. This is specified in Rule-39-C of the Central Civil Service (Leave) Rules,1972.

4. Uniform annual appraisal/increment date

Since the CCS (RP) Rules 2008 were put into effect, the increments in the new pay structure have been governed by Rule 10 of the CCS (RP) Rules 2008. The first of July has been established as the standard date for the annual increase, as stated in this regulation.

According to the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT), "employees who have completed six months or more in the revised pay structure as of the first of July will be eligible to be granted the increment."

5. Postponement of increment in case of Extra Ordinary Leave

In the event that an employee's qualifying service is less than six months due to taking Extra Ordinary Leaves (without a medical certificate) between the 1st of July of the year before and the 30th of June of the year being considered, the increment may be delayed until the 1st of July of the following year. This is subject to change.

However, EOL that was granted for the following reasons would be counted as qualifying service for pension and for increments: I EOL that was granted due to the inability of a government servant to join or rejoin duty as a result of civil commotion; and (ii) EOL that was granted to a government servant for the purpose of pursuing higher technical and scientific studies.

The salaries and allowances provided to Central Government Employees are based on the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.
