Update: Foreign Service, Deputation & Detailment – Amendment of WBSR
Deputation of State Govt. Employees to other Governments, Departments, Companies, Corporations etc.
The deputation allowance shall be admissible at the following rates:
Provided that the basic pay plus deputation allowance shall at no time exceed maximum of the pay scale of the parent post or the maximum of the pay scale of the deputation post or Rs. 22400/- p.m. whichever is higher. Also provided that the post to which the Government servant is deputed does not carry identical, equivalent or lower scale of pay.
In order that no employee receives an abnormal pay increase by virtue of being posted on deputation, the authority ordering the deputation will ensure that the minimum pay in the scale of pay of the deputation post is not substantially in excess of his basic pay plus deputation allowance at prescribed rates. Where such minimum substantially exceeds the basic pay of the employee in his parent department, the appointing authorities should apply the provisions of Rule 58 of WBSR and specially restrict the pay of the deputationist to a suitable figure below the minimum pay of the post.
For the sake of uniformity the pay allowed under Rule 58, ibid, should not exceed the basic pay of the deputationist by more than the amounts shown below:
|1||Employees in receipt of basic pay above Rs. 8000/- p.m.||8% of basic pay or Rs. 800/- whichever is more.|
|2||Employees in receipt of basic pay above Rs. 3000/- and up to Rs. 8000/- p.m.||10% of basic pay or Rs. 375/- whichever is more.|
|3||Employees in receipt of basic pay of and below Rs. 3000/- p.m.||12.5% of basic pay.|
When a person already on deputation is to be appointed to another post by the borrowing authority, the borrowing authority should obtain the concurrence of the lending authority prior to such appointment, so that the latter might decide as to how the pay in another post is to be fixed.
