approved by the State Government for appointment to the
said Level during the relevant period;

ILLUSTRATIONS:
(1) Bunching of stages in the revised pay structure:
 If two members of Service drawing pay of Rs. 53,000 and Rs. 54,590
in the GP 10000 are to be fitted in the new pay matrix, the member
of Service drawing pay of Rs. 53,000 on multiplication by a factor of
2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs. 1,36,210 and the
member of Service drawing pay of Rs. 54,590 on multiplication by a
factor of 2.57 will expect a pay corresponding to Rs. 1,40,296.
Revised pay of both should ideally be fixed in the first cell of level 14
in the pay of Rs. 1,44,200 but to avoid bunching the member of
Services drawing pay of Rs. 54,590 will get fixed in second cell of
level 14 in the pay of Rs. 1,48,500.[Proviso under Rule 4(A)(ii)]
(2) Additional increment for stagnation at the maximum of the
 Pay Band and Grade Pay or Scale:



After fixation of pay on 01.01.2016 as indicated above, the date of
increment shall be regulated as per the provisions of Rule 8 of IFS(Pay)
Rules, 2016. [Proviso under Rule 8(1)(b)]

and merged in the revised pay scales, shall be excluded. Any existing
relief allotted by the State Government shall be excluded for fixation of
pay in Indian Forest Service.
(ii) "assumed pay" means the pay which a member of the State Forest
Service would have drawn in a scale of his Service in which he was
confirmed or in which had continuously worked in a temporary or
officiating capacity for a period of three years or more after following
the prescribed procedure, provided the State Government have not
revised scales of pay applicable to the State Forest Service after the
first day of January, 2016. If the pay scales have been revised

components of the Senior Scale, pay shall be fixed in the lower or the
lowest component, as the case may be, of the Senior Scale.
(2)In the case of a promoted officer appointed to the Indian Forest
Service on probation, on any enhancement of his actual pay or
assumed pay either as a result of a pay revision or on becoming
eligible for an increment or in the event of confirmation in the higher
scale of the State Forest Service, during the period of probation, unless
the probation is extended within the meaning of sub-rule (3) of rule 3
of the Indian Forest Service (Probation) Rules 1968, he shall be
entitled to have his pay recalculated in accordance with the principles
laid down in this Schedule on the basis of his enhanced pay in the
State Forest Service as if he was promoted to the Indian Forest Service

(3)If a promoted officer appointed to the Indian Forest Service on
probation is confirmed with effect from a date prior to the date of his
promotion to the Indian Forest Service in the higher scale of the State
Forest Service during the period of probation, unless the probation is
extended within the meaning of sub-rule (3) of rule 3 of the Indian
Forest Service (Probation) Rules, 1968 and there is, thus an
enhancement of his actual pay or assumed pay, his pay shall be
recalculated in accordance with the principles laid down in this
Schedule on the basis of his enhanced pay in the Indian Forest Service
with effect from the date of such enhancement.

 (b) equal in status and responsibilities to a cadre post,
and the State Government concerned furnishes a certificate to the Central
Government within three months of his appointment to a post other than
a cadre post or within three months of the date on which the next junior
Select List Officer is appointed to a cadre post, whichever is later, that he
would have so officiated in a cadre post under rule 9 of the Indian Forest
Service (Cadre) Rules, 1966, but for his appointment to a post other than
a cadre post as relating to a post under clause (a) for a period not
exceeding one year and, with the approval of the Central Government, for
a further period not exceeding two years; or as relating to a post in
clause (b), for a period not exceeding three years, his initial pay in the
Senior Time Scale fixed in accordance with clause (1) shall not be at a
stage lower than the pay he drew or draws in the said non-cadre post:

regulation 5 of the Indian Forest Service (Appointment by Promotion)
Regulations, 1966 and follow the order in which the names of such officers

senior officer in the Select List appointed to a non-cadre post in respect of
which the certificate is given, there is one junior Select List Officer
officiating in a senior post under rule 9 of the Indian Forest Service
(Cadre) Rules, 1966:
 Provided also that the number of officers in respect of whom the
certificate is given, shall not exceed the number of posts by which the

State Government falls short of the deputation reserve sanctioned under
the Schedule to the Indian Forest Service (Fixation of Cadre Strength)
Regulations, 1966.
(5) The pay of a promoted officer shall not, in any case, be fixed below
the minimum of the Senior Time Scale.

in the Service, pay fixed during his officiation shall be taken into account

five years, as the case may be.
(8) The fixation of pay of the State Forest Service officers on their
appointment or appointed to officiate in cadre posts of the Indian Forest
