No. 2426-F(P1). Dated, Howrah, the 13th June, 2022.
It has come to the notice that after coming into force of W.B.S. (R.O.P.A.) Rules, 2019, an employee on promotion from a post in Level-09 to a post in Level-10C is getting his pay fixed at lower amount than the pay being fixed for an employee having same basic pay in the post in Level-09 on his promotion to the post in Level-10 inspite of the fact that the post in Level-10C is higher than the post in Level-10. The matter is under consideration of the government for sometime past so that the former does not get his pay fixed at a lower amount than the latter.
2. After careful consideration of the matter, the undersigned is directed by order of the Governor to replace the existing contents of Level-10C of the W.B.S. (R.O.P.A.) Rules, 2019 by the following:
3. This will take effect notionally from 01.01.2016 with actual effect from 01.01.2020.
4. The employees who were in the corresponding pre-revised pay scale No. 10(c) [Rs. 7,100 – 37,600/- (minimum pay Rs. 11,720/-) with Grade Pay 4,220/-] or those who got promotion to the post in the scale during 01.01.2016 to 25.09.2019 may exercise fresh option within 90 days from the date of issue of this Memo, subject to the provisions of Rule-5 of W.B.S. (R.O.P.A.) Rules, 2019.
5. Necessary amendments in the W.B.S. (R.O.P.A.) Rules, 2019 will be made in due course.
