The Centre will set up anomalies committees to examine individual, post and cadre-specific anomalies arising out of implementation of the recommendations of seventh Central Pay Commission.
The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has been authorized to take action regarding pay and related issues concerning officers of all India services--Indian Administrative Service (IAS), Indian Police Service (IPS) and Indian Forest Service (IFoS).
"Anomalies committees will be set up by Department of Personnel and Training to examine individual, post-specific and cadre-specific anomalies arising out of implementation of the recommendations of the Commission," the Finance Ministry said in an order notifying implementation of the pay panel's recommendations.
The three-member Seventh Central Pay Commission, which had submitted its report on November 19, 2015, was divided over the issue of financial and career-related edge given to IAS officers as against those belonging to the other services.
IAS officers presently get a two-year edge over other services for getting empanelled to come on deputation at the Center.
Besides, they also get two additional increments at the rate of 3 per cent over their basic pay at three promotion stages i.E., promotion to the Senior Time Scale (STS), to the Junior Administrative Grade (JAG) and to the Non-Functional Selection Grade (NFSG) after putting in about four, eight and 13 years of service, respectively.
A confederation representing thousands of officers of 20 civil services, including the IPS, have been demanding pay parity and other benefits enjoyed by IAS officers.
"Regarding pay and related issues concerning All India Services, appropriate action will be taken by Department of Personnel and Training to give effect to the decisions on these matters as may be applicable to them," the latest order issued yesterday said.
