The undersigned is directed to refer to finance division clarification issued vide om no. F. 1(6))mp2000-392 dated 18-6-2011 the advance increments to those who acquires /possesses higher qualifications than those prescribed for the post. These advances increment were made double w. e. F. 1-6-1991 under para 5 of finance division letter dated 29-6-1991. Later on, finance division 18-6-2011 was issued which clarified that advance increments for acquiring /possessing higher qualification will be admissible to those officials who have been promoted to higher posts on the basis of seniority cum_fitness but were not allowed advance increments to those who possess the same qualification, prescribed for the said promotional post.
It have been observed that while implementing this policy certain quarters have not adhere to the guidelines in letter & spirit and granted advance increments where promotion to the higher post was made on the basis of reorganisation of a department or on qualifying certain departmental examination. It is therefore, clarified that finance division o. M. Dated 18-6-2011 is applicable in such case only where promotion to the higher post was made on seniority – cum_fitness basis. It does not cover the cases where promotion to higher scales scale is made on the basis of reorganisation of departments or passing of departmental examinations. These instructions may be followed in letter & spirit. Special thanks for ch zahid for sending the copy of this notification
