-- -- --ORDER :--
Based on the recommendations of the Official Committee, orders have been issued in the Government Order read above revising the scales of pay of Employees/Teachers notionally with effect from 1--1--2006 with monetary benefit from 1--1--2007. Among others, under Rule 9 of the Tamil Nadu Revised Scales of Pay Rules, 2009, the pay of the employees appointed as fresh recruits on or after 1--1--2006 was ordered to be fixed at the entry level in the pay band and in these cases where the emoluments in the pre-revised pay
scale exceeds the sum of the pay fixed in the revised pay structure and the applicable dearness allowance thereon, the difference was ordered to be allowed as personal pay to be absorbed in future increments in pay. Certain Employees/Teachers Associations have brought to the notice of Government that the employees appointed as fresh recruits on or after 1--1--2006 and upto the date of issue of orders (i.e. 1--6--2009) happen to face loss in emoluments while fixing their pay in the revised pay structure and therefore requested to
rectify the same by granting pay protection of allowing the fitment benefit to the new entrants as was allowed in the earlier Pay Commission periods.
2. After careful consideration, the Government has decided to accept the request made by the employees associations. Accordingly, Government in exercise of the powers conferred under Rule 13 of the Tamil Nadu Revised Scales of Pay Rules, 2009 issues the following amendment to Rule 9 of the said Rules.
“ 9) Fixation of pay of employees appointed on or after 1--1--2006. Fixation of pay in the revised pay structure of employees appointed as fresh recruits on or after 1--1--2006 and before 1—6--2009,
their pay in the revised pay structure shall be fixed as per Rule 4(1) above with effect from the date of their joining service.”
