Pay fixation of reemployed exservicemen is a disputed matter. Based on DOPT’s orders and instructions, IB A has allowed fixation of pay of reemployed JCOs OR at higher stage as per last pay drawn. Wheteas in central civil services dept/ ministeies have denied to allow the same. All commissioned officers on Re Employment in any govt organization, are allowed to draw higher pay. The matter was actively considered by DOPT after a long years of correspondence and meetings with them by ESM association. But unfortunately, MoF is not agreed to extent pay fixation benefit at par with offrs. Govt of India, Dept of Financial Services has issued several orders and instructions regarding pay fixation of reemployed based on the instructions issued by DOP&T and Ministry of Finance. The same is reproduced here :-
Please refer to your D.O. No. 12(35)/2011/D(Res-1) dated 24.04.2012 regarding grievances of ex-servicemen re-employed in Public Sector Banks for fixation of their salary in banks.
In this connection, I would like to mention that the Department of Financial Services had circulated instructions/directions/circulars such as of the DoP&T’s earlier OM No. 3/ 19/2009-Estt.Pay II dated 8.11.2010 as well as the Ministry of Defence (MOD)’S letter No. l(4)/2007/D(Pen/Policy) dated 09.02.2011 to all Public Sector Banks(PSBs)/Financial Institutions (Fls) and Insurance Companies (ICs) for compliance.
The Indian Banks’ Association (IBA) sought clarification from DFS on re-fixation of pay to ex-servicemen re-employed in their Public Sector Banks on or after 01.01.2006. Based on DoP&T’s 0.M dated 8.11.2010, it was pointed by this Department vide its letter No. 4/1/2010-SCT (B) dated 23.03.2012 that Ex-servicemen re-employed in banks who retired on/or after 01.01.2006 are eligible to pay fixation in banks based on the pay drawn by them at the time of discharge from the Defence Services which would include band pay Plus grade pay but it does not include MSP. As it created confusion among banks over uniform implementation of the DoP&T’s Office Memorandum dated 08.11.2010 the circular was treated as withdrawn.
It has therefore been reiterated that DoP&T’s above instructions may be followed in letter and sprit.
