I joined as an assistant teacher in pass category on 20.09.2008. After my approval I was on leave without pay for about five and a half months. I was notionally awarded increment on 1st July, 2009. Leaving the period of without pay I actually started receiving the enhanced salary from December 2009. I have joined another school as Hons./PG teacher in 2011. Now when my Service Book was sent to the D.I. Office for countersignature of the D.I. the officials said that increment can be given only on July and the overdrawn amount has to be repaid now. I don’t have any idea about this problem and the relevant G.O.s. Please advise.
I went through the illustration.But in my case I had not completed 6 months of service till 30th June,2009.I then thought that as the incremental benefit would be effective later when i would complete 6 months in service it was ok. Do you think that I was wrongfully given the notional increment as I had not completed 6 months of service till June 2009?
When the period of extraordinary leave exceeds one month, but does not exceed eleven months after 1st July of usual annual increment, the Government employee may be allowed the next annual increment notionally on the 1st July of the next year. However, the actual benefit of increment will be admissible from the month after deducting the non-qualifying month(s) of service spent on extraordinary leave from the 1st July of notional incremental benefit.
As per this statement of that G.O you are right as fer as my knowledge is concern.
