Non compounded advance increment for higher qualification
My question is; Whether Non compounded advance increment for higher qualification [such as M.Tech. and Ph.D degrees] as allowed by AICTE [and UGC] are to be awarded in a non compounded basis and be merged with Basic Pay. Then DA, HRA and other allowances are to be calculated on that Basic Pay added with Academic Grade Pay.
This is in reference to the notified Pay scale vide AICTE Pay-regulation 2010, published vide F.No:37-3/Legal/2010,New Delhi, the January 22, 2010.
Sir this is essential to me because (i) I am going to retire next year and (2) at present the A.G. West Bengal raised questions in a few earlier cases of settlement of Pension cases of Lecturers engaged in Govt. Polytechnics in West Bengal.

Are you getting paid at present as per the said norms notified Pay scale vide AICTE Pay-regulation 2010, published vide F.No:37-3/Legal/2010,New Delhi, the January 22, 2010.If so what is your concern, is it that you want to calculate your pension or other reliefs after retirement.
Answer to your question is yes
Usually the said increments are added with the salary as incentives and others., the same will be added to basic pay.
DA and HRA are increased based on the yearly increment or the time to time applicable rules considering the basic as the basic salary get increased as every other components are increased based on this
first find out whether you are paid the said increments for having the higher qualification if not ask for it as per the notification. if you are paid, the calculation of retire-mental benefits other than EPF will be based on basic salary which will be separately mentioned in your pay slip.You should know if any errors in it if so challenge it with the concerned department as early as possible.
1. Yes, it is awarded in a non-compoundable basis and merged with basic pay on which DA, HRA etc. are calculated on percentage basis subject to their attaining the ceiling,
2. Start arranging your papers before hand while being in job to ensure that your pension matter does not held up due to bureaucratic red tapeism when you are no more in your job.
Hi sir/madam, it is the strategies of the concerned authority, you have to request them by urging your questions and take relief.
