Amendments to Rule 28A and 37(a) Part I KSR
39. As per the existing Rule 28 A Part I KSRs which took effect from 26.03.2006,
where an Officer holding a post in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity is
promoted or appointed in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity to another
post carrying a higher time scale of pay, his initial pay in the higher time scale of pay
shall be fixed at the stage next above the pay notionally arrived at in the lower time
scale of pay by increasing the actual pay drawn by him in the lower time scale by one
increment. A promotee is given the following options to elect the date on which his
pay is to be fixed in the higher time scale of pay under Rule 28 A:
Option (a): Pay will be fixed in the higher time scale of pay on the date of
promotion, under Rule 28 A.
Option (b):Pay on the date of promotion will be initially fixed at the stage of
the higher time scale of pay of the promoted post next above the pay in the
lower time scale. Thereafter fixation of pay under Rule 28 A will be allowed,
based on the pay in the lower post on the date of increment in the lower post.
Prior to 26.03.2006, Rule 28 A Part I KSRs had operated without any options for
fixation of pay. It had allowed only initial fixation on the date of promotion and a refixation
whenever there was a change of pay in the lower time scale.
40. The method of fixation of pay contemplated under Rule 28 A ibid in force prior to
26.03.2006 will be restored with effect from 01/02/2016. Accordingly, where an
officer holding a post in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity is promoted
or appointed in a substantive, temporary or officiating capacity to another post
19
carrying a higher time-scale of pay, his initial pay in the higher time-scale of pay,
shall be fixed at the stage next above the pay notionally arrived at in the lower timescale
of pay by increasing the actual pay drawn by him in the lower time-scale by one
increment. A refixation of pay will be allowed whenever there is a change of pay in
the lower time-scale. Fixation of pay will be done as above in respect of
promotions/appointments taking effect from that date onwards. However, Rule 28 A
Part I will not apply to promotions/appointments to posts carrying higher time scale of
pay, the minimum of which exceeds Rs.68700. In such cases fixation will be allowed
under Rule 37 (a),Part I KSRs.
41. In all cases of Time Bound Higher Grade promotions to higher scales of pay, the
existing practice of fixation of pay under Rule 28 A Part I KSRs will continue without
the option facility. Detailed guidelines for fixation of pay are shown in Annexure III.
42. In all cases of regular promotions from time bound grades to posts (equivalent to
that of the grade post) carrying the same or higher time scale of pay, the pay in the
promoted scale will be fixed in terms of Rule 30 Part I KSRs. The next increment in
the same or higher scale will fall due on the date of increment in the time bound grade
scale.
43. Where promotion/appointment by transfer to posts happen to have the same scale
of pay of the feeder category posts, one advance increment will be granted to the
incumbents appointed by promotion or by transfer to posts carrying the same scale of
pay as the feeder category posts without prejudice to the normal increments. This
advance increment will not be granted in the case of promotion from time bound
higher grade to a regular promotion post in the same scale of pay and in the case of
appointment to interchangeable posts in the same scale of pay. This will take effect
from 01.07.2014.
44. In the case of an officer who was promoted prior to 01.07.2014 and enjoyed the
benefit of fixation of pay under Rule 28 A Part I KSRs on the date of increment in the
pre-revised lower scale due after 01.07.2014 in terms of option(b), his pay in the
20
revised scale of the promoted post on the date of increment in the pre-revised lower
scale will be fixed at the stage next above the pay notionally arrived at in the
promoted scale by increasing the actual pay drawn by him in that time scale by one
increment.
Date of Effect
45. The date of effect of the revised scales of pay will be 01/07/2014. Revised pay
will be admissible with the salary of February 2016. The date of effect of revised rates
of monthly allowance will be 01/02/2016. Modified ratio/percentage based higher
grade promotions, other periodical allowances will have effect from 01/04/2016.
Modification to Rule 28A and 37(a), Part I KSR (vide Paras 39-44 above) will apply
to promotions taking effect from 01/02/2016.
Arrears
46. The revised pay and allowances will be granted in cash from February 2016.
Employees will be entitled to draw arrears on account of pay revision in four
instalments, each at 25% of the arrears, in cash on 1.4.2017, 1.10.2017, 1.4.2018 and
1.10.2018 respectively along with interest on the arrears not drawn as on the above
dates at the rate of interest admissible on their Provident Fund. In the event of death
of any employee, the entire arrears on account of pay revision not drawn by the
employee will be paid along with interest accrued as on the date of death, to the legal
heirs of the employee.
(For e.g. an employee entitled to Rs.1 lakh as arrears of pay revision, will be
allowed to draw the first instalment of Rs.25,000 on 1.4.2017 along with
interest at the current rate on State Government Employee Provident Fund (say
8.7%) for 14 months on Rs. 1 lakh, the second instalment of Rs.25,000 on
1.10.2017 along with interest at 8.7% for 6 months on Rs.75,000, the third
instalment of Rs.25,000 on 1.10.2017 along with interest at 8.7% for 6 months
on Rs.50,000 and the fourth and last instalment of Rs.25000 along with interest
at 8.7% for 6 months on Rs.25,000.)
47. The pay of all non-gazetted officers will be fixed in accordance with these orders
by the Officers who draw and disburse their salary. The pay fixation statement of
21
those who draw salary on countersigned bills shall be approved by the countersigning
authority. In the case of gazetted officers the drawing and disbursing officer
concerned should take steps to get the revised salary fixed by the Accountant General.
The pay fixation statement of non-gazetted employees should be pasted in the Service
Book after countersignature by the Drawing Officer.
48. (1) Pension contribution based on the pay in the revised scale of pay will be
recovered from 01/07/2014. Foreign employers will arrange the remittance at the
revised rates from 01/07/2014.
(2) In the case of employees who come under National Pension System, the
pension contribution on the basis of revised scale of pay will be recovered from the
salary of February 2016 onwards.
49. Omissions/errors/inclusion of new category (temporary posts) if any, in respect of
posts or scales of pay indicated in Annexure-XVI to this Order should be reported to
Government by the Heads of Departments within a month positively from the date of
this Order with relevant supporting documents for timely rectification. The Heads of
Departments will be held responsible for any lapse in this regard.
50. Arrear claims preferred in pursuance of these orders will be paid without precheck
in relaxation of Article 53, Kerala Financial Code, Volume I.
51. The Heads of Departments and other officers who inspect their subordinate offices,
will check all cases of fixation of pay in the revised scales and indicate in the Service
Books the fact of having checked the pay fixation. In case where fixation or grant of
higher grade or payment of increased benefits is found to be incorrect, the inspecting
officer should record the same in the Service Books concerned and instructions should
be given to concerned officers to rectify the defects. In the Departments where there
are arrangements for internal audit, the audit team shall review fixation of pay, verify
the entries in the Service Book and record therein that such verification has been done.
If defects are detected in the case of gazetted officers, the inspecting officers should
22
intimate them to the Accountant General for appropriate action.
52. Certain changes ordered above will require amendment to the existing provisions
in KSRs. Such amendments will be done separately with retrospective effect from the
relevant date indicated in this order.
53. Recoveries will be insisted upon where overpayments are made on account of
wrong fixation. If an officer competent to fix pay under these orders or

orders, he shall seek clarification of the Pay Revision Cell in the Finance Department
in Government before approving the pay fixation and disbursing the pay.

Annexure-II
Rules for Fixation of Pay in the Revised Scale of Pay
1. The revised scales of pay shall come into force with effect from 01/07/2014.
2. All employees who were in service as on 01/07/2014 shall come over to the revised
scale of pay with effect from 01/07/2014. There will be no option.
3. All appointments and promotions made on or after 1/7/2014 shall be deemed to
have been made in the revised scale of pay and pay will be regulated accordingly.
Existing emoluments
4. Existing scale of pay for the purpose of these rules is the scale of pay immediately
prior to 01/07/2014.
5. Existing emoluments for the purpose of these rules shall be the total of:
(a) Basic Pay in the existing scale of pay as on 01/07/2014, including increments,
if any, accruing on 01/07/2014, Stagnation increments shall also be reckoned.
(b) Personal Pay, if any, not specifically ordered to be absorbed in future increase
of pay.
(c) Special Pay drawn in lieu of higher time scale of pay, provided there is no
special pay attached to the revised scale of pay
(d) Dearness Allowance admissible at the rate of 80% on such pay vide (a), (b) and
(c) above.
Note:- Special pay, in addition to the pay drawn in the existing scale shall not
be reckoned for fixation of pay in the revised scale.
Fitment Benefit and Service Weightage
6. To the existing emoluments computed above, shall be added an amount equal to 12%
of basic pay in Rule 4(a) subject to a minimum of Rs.2000, towards Fitment Benefit
and another amount equivalent to 1/2 % of basic pay specified in Rule 4 (a) above, for
each completed year of service subject to a maximum of 30 completed years, towards
Service Weightage, provided the amount of Fitment Benefit and Service Weightage
taken together shall not exceed Rs.12,000.
Note:-Service for the purpose of this rule means full time regular service
including broken periods of service qualifying for normal increments in the
29
scale of pay. Time spent on leave not counting for normal increment shall not
be reckoned. Service during the period of bar on increment, without
cumulative effect will be reckoned. Prior regular service in aided
schools/colleges/polytechnics, Municipal Common Service, University Service,
Panchayat Service and High Court of Kerala Service will also be reckoned.
7. The amount so arrived at under Rule 6 above shall be stepped up to the next stage
in the revised scale of pay.
8. If the amount arrived at under Rule 6 above is more than the maximum of the
revised scale of pay, the pay shall be fixed at the maximum of the scale of pay and
the difference shall be treated as personal pay and it will not be absorbed in future
increase in pay on account of granting increments. This personal pay will count for
all purposes, viz fixation of pay, calculation of leave salary, drawal of allowances
including dearness allowance and pension.
Stepping up of pay of seniors
9. In cases, where a senior employee promoted to a higher post before 01/07/2014
(other than Time Bound Higher Grade), draws less pay in the revised scale than his
junior promoted to the same higher post after 01/07/2014, the pay of the senior
employee shall be stepped up to the level of the pay of the junior with effect from the
date on which junior draws more pay, provided that
(a) The senior and the junior employee should belong to the same category and
should have been promoted to the same category of post.
(b) The pre-revised and revised scale of pay of the lower and higher posts
should be identical.
(c) The senior employee at the time of promotion has been drawing equal or
more pay than the junior.
(d) The anomaly should have arisen directly as a result of the introduction of
the revised scale of pay and fixation rules.
(e) The anomaly should not have arisen due to any advance increment granted
to the junior in the lower post or due to the increased service weightage gained by
the junior.
30
Note:- (i) If the junior employee was drawing more pay than the senior
employee in the lower post in the pre-revised scale, the senior to such
junior shall have no claim over the pay of the junior.
(ii) In case where pay of an employee is stepped up in terms of Rule 8
above, the next increment shall be granted after completing the required
service of one year in the new scale from the date of stepping up of pay.
Increment
10. The date of increments of the employees shall not undergo any change
consequent on switch over to the revised scale of pay, that is, increments will be
granted on due dates as if one had continued in the pre-revised scale without
waiting for one year from the date of Pay Revision. In the case of employees whose
increments falls on 1st July 2014, next increment will due on completion of one year.
11. An employee whose increment is withheld for want of declaration of probation on
01/07/2014 will be allowed the benefit of fixation of pay on the basis of the pay
actually drawn as on 01/07/2014 and he will continue on that pay till the date of effect
of declaration of probation. However, the period during which increment is withheld
will not be reckoned for computation of service weightage. The pay so fixed will be
revised on declaration of probation, notionally counting the increment accrued but
withheld. The period during which increment was withheld will also be counted for
service weightage now. Monetary benefit of revised fixation will be admissible only
from the effective date of declaration of probation. He will draw his next increment on
the normal date.
12. In the case of employees who are on leave, or on deputation or under suspension
on 1/7/2014, pay will be fixed as on the date of rejoining on duty on the basis of pay
last drawn prior to 01/07/2014.
13. In the case of employees whose increment in the pre-revised scale is barred as
punishment with cumulative effect, their pay in the revised scale will be fixed as on
01/07/2014 (if increment bar is in force on that date) on the basis of the pay they were
drawing immediately before increment bar. They will be entitled to the pay at the
same rate till the expiry of the period of increment bar. The next increment in the
31
revised scale will be sanctioned after the expiry of the period of increment bar, subject
to Rule 10 of pay fixation rules.

punishment without cumulative effect, their pay in the revised scale will be fixed as
on 01/07/2014 (if increment bar is in force on that date) in the revised scale on the
basis of the pay notionally arrived at by counting increment, in the pre-revised scale,
for every completed year of service which would have been counted for normal
increment, but for the punishment. But the remaining period of increment bar will not
be counted for accruing the next increment in the revised scale, subject to Rule 10 of
pay fixation rules.
15. In the case of employees whose pay in the pre-revised scale is reduced to a lower
stage as penalty temporarily, their pay in the revised scale will be fixed as on

reduction in the pre-revised scale. The next increment that will accrue in the revised
scale in terms of Rule 10 of the above rules will be sanctioned only after the expiry of
the remaining period of penalty.
16. In the case of employees whose pay in the pre-revised scale is reduced
permanently to lower stage as penalty with the effect of postponing of future
increments, their pay in the revised scale will be fixed on 01/07/2014 on the basis of
reduced pay in the pre-revised scale. They will have to remain in that pay till expiry
of period of reduction. The next increment that will accrue in the revised scale will be
sanctioned only after expiry of the remaining period of penalty.
17. In the case of employees who are continuing on LWA on 01/07/2014, their pay
will be fixed in the revised scale as on the date of return from leave on the basis of pay
last drawn before entering on leave.

Revised pay scale in the

TBHG for 8 years of
service in the entry post
42500-87000 45800-89000
45800-89000 55350-101400
55350-101400 68700-110400
5. For the incumbents in the posts on scales of pay above Rs.55350-101400 no Time
Bound Higher Grade will be allowed.
6. If there is a regular promotion post (including ratio promotion post) in respect of
the categories of posts (entry) coming under pay range from Rs.16500-35700 to
Rs.32300-68700 and its scale of pay is higher than the Time Bound Higher Grade
proposed above, then the qualified incumbent will be given the scale of pay of the
regular promotion post in the direct line of promotion as Time Bound Higher Grade
scale. (While assigning higher grade, only qualified hands eligible for regular
promotion will get the scales of pay of regular promotion posts). In cases where there
exist no such immediate regular promotion post under common category in a
department, the scale of pay of immediate regular promotion post as shown in the
schedule of posts under common category as per Special Rules alone will be
admissible as grade scale (ie. in case where there are only Junior Superintendent post
and no intermediary post of Head Clerk in a department, a UD Clerk will be eligible
for higher grade in the scale of pay of Head Clerk only). Unqualified hands will be
allowed the next higher scale of pay above that of the scale of pay of the post held at
that time, in the standard scales of pay in Annexure I.
7. If the scale of pay of the regular promotion post is lower than the Time Bound
Higher Grade proposed in the Table, the scale of pay of Time Bound Higher Grade
specified above will be given on completion of prescribed years of qualifying service
by reckoning the total service in both the lower post and promotion post taken
together. In such cases the fixation under Rule 30, Part I KSR will be admissible and
the next increment will be allowed on the normal increment date in the earlier
promoted post.
42
8. In all cases of regular promotions from Time Bound Higher Grades to post
(equivalent to that of the grade post) carrying the same or higher time scale of pay, the
pay in the promoted scale will be fixed in terms of Rule 30,Part I KSR. The next
increment in the same or higher scale will fall due on the date of increment in the
Time Bound Higher Grade post. This is applicable only to an officer promoted from
Time Bound Higher Grade to the equivalent regular promotion post on the same or
higher scale of pay which is in the regular line of promotion of the post held by him.
In the case of an officer promoted or appointed ‘by transfer’ to a post which is not
equivalent to the Time Bound Higher Grade enjoyed by him and carries lower, same
or higher scale of pay, fixation of pay will be made under the appropriate rules of
fixation of pay in KSRs.
9. In respect of categories of post coming under the pay scale ranging from Rs.35700-
75600 to 40500-85000 the Time Bound Higher Grade will be as specified in Table II.
Scales of pay of regular promotion post will not be given in these cases. This is
applicable in the case of employee enjoying scale of pay 35700-75600 and above
whether by regular promotion or by Time Bound Higher Grade.
10. In the case of an employee enjoying the Time Bound Higher Grade Promotion in
the pre-revised grade scale his revision shall be done only in the eligible Time Bound
Higher Grade scale. Corresponding revised scale of pre-revised grade scale (as per
Annexure I) will not be allowed in such case.
11. In the case of Time Bound Higher Grade promotion the pay in the higher time
scale will be fixed in terms of Rule 28 A Part I KSR i.e. one notional increment will
be given and thereafter the pay in the higher grade scale will be fixed at the next stage
above the pay in the lower time scale, arrived after adding notional increment, as on
the date of the higher grade promotion. However, he will draw his next increment in
the grade scale on the date he would have drawn his normal increment in the lower
scale. But in the case of an officer who got the benefit of more than two increments on
43
account of fixation of pay on sanction of higher grade, he will draw his next increment
on completion of one year service in the grade scale. The existing option facility for
Time Bound Higher Grade Promotion is withdrawn with effect 01/02/2016. The
fixation on Time Bound Higher Grade Promotion shall be done on the due date itself.
The revised fixation rule will be made applicable for Time Bound Higher Grade
promotion due on or after 01/02/2016.
12. In case the 15/22/27 year higher grades as per the Tables above are equal to or
lower than the first/second/third promotion post as the case may be, that grade(s) will
be modified and fixed at the next higher scale(s) above that of the promotion post(s) in
the list of standard scales of pay in Annexure I
13. Non-teaching staff in Aided Schools, Private Colleges and Polytechnics who
come under the scheme of direct payment of salary by Government are also eligible
for Time Bound Higher Grade promotion subject to the above conditions. The existing
benefit of third Time Bound Higher Grade in the scale of pay of Junior Superintendent
allowed to LD Clerk in Aided School will continue.
14. The service rendered in the entry post and reckoned for normal increments will be
treated as the qualifying service for granting Time Bound Higher Grades in that post.
15. The term entry post shall be defined as the post to which an employee is initially
appointed in Government service by direct recruitment by the competent authority.
Appointments made by PSC, by transfer from other categories will also be treated
as equivalent to direct recruitment for allowing the benefit of Time Bound Higher
Grade. An employee who has been initially appointed in a post in one department gets
appointment subsequently by direct recruitment (PSC) or by other means in another
post in the same /other department, his entry post will be the newly appointed post, in
such cases Time Bound Higher Grade Promotion will be granted based on the new
entry post only. Service in different posts having same scale will not be treated as
qualifying service. Similarly in the case of employees who get inter departmental
44
transfer (interdepartmental transferees), their prior service in the entry post in the
former department will also be reckoned as qualifying service for time bound higher
grade. Those who get regular promotion or appointment to higher posts within the
period specified for each Time Bound Higher Grade will not be granted further Time
Bound Higher Grade during that period.
16. All promotions in the regular line of promotion from Subordinate Service to State
Service (e.g. promotion as Senior Superintendent from Junior Superintendent, Section
Officer from Assistant Section Officer, Assistant Engineer from First Grade Overseer
etc ) are also termed as ‘by transfer’ appointment. However, further Time Bound
Higher Grade promotion will not be granted by reckoning the service in the
promoted posts(Senior Superintendent, Section Officer, Assistant Engineer etc) taken
as entry post on analogy with by transfer appointment i.e. promotion to a post in the
direct line of promotion in a Department made on the basis of select list prepared by
the Departmental Promotion Committee, will not be treated as direct recruitment for
allowing the benefit of Time Bound Higher Grade. All appointment ‘by transfer’
except the promotions/appointments from Subordinate Service to State Service as
mentioned above will be treated as equivalent to direct recruitment for sanctioning
Time Bound Higher Grade.
17. Those who relinquish regular promotion, whether permanently or for specified
periods , will not be given the benefit of Time Bound Higher Grade promotions.
Similarly, an employee who got the benefit of Time Bound Higher Grade promotion
will on no account be permitted to relinquish regular promotion to that grade either
permanently or for specified periods.
18. The employees in the entry scales of pay of Rs.17000-37500 and Rs.17500-39500
will be eligible for reckoning their last grade service also for allowing 22 years third
Time Bound Higher Grade. This benefit will not be allowed to first, second and fourth
Time Bound Higher Grades. The employees in the posts having the revised entry scale
of Rs. 18000 – 41500 and above are also not eligible for this benefit.
45
19. Military service which counts for civil pension of Ex-servicemen will be reckoned
as qualifying service for allowing first higher grade. However, on the basis of
Judgement dated 25.3.15 of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in Civil Appeal No.
3136/15 and other connected Civil Appeals, Government have issued
GO(P)No.408/15/Fin dated 14.9.2015, in which it has been clarified that the exservicemen
who were under War/Military service got appointment in the State Civil
Service in Gazetted and Non-Gazetted posts are eligible to get the benefit of first Time
Bound Higher Grade counting the War/Military service without refunding their
mustering out benefits. The Civilian service under Military will not be counted for
granting higher grade. The State Government employees who are in service on
14.9.2015 (date of order) and who joined State Government Service after 14.9.2015
are eligible to get the benefits in GO(P)No.408/15/Fin dated 14.9.2015. As per the
said Government Order, a State Government employee having 10/8 or more years of
War/Military service prior to the date of joining in Government Service, as the case
may be, are eligible to get first Time Bound Higher Grade on the date of joining in
Government service itself in the next higher scale above the scale of pay of the entry
post in the list of standard scales in Annexure 1, with KSRs Part I Rule 28 A fixation
benefit. The scale of pay of regular promotion post / table scale will be admissible
with KSRs Part I Rule 30 fixation benefit only after the declaration of satisfactory
completion of probation and on acquiring qualifications of regular promotion posts as
the case may be. Ex-servicemen, enjoying protection of pay will not be allowed this
benefit, and in that case service under State Government alone will be reckoned as
qualifying service.
20. All other existing general terms and conditions governing grant of Time Bound
Higher Grade Promotions will continue subject to the modifications issued by
Government from time to time.
