7. APSRTC PRC 2022 PTD Employees PRC 2022 Master Scale & Pay Fixation 

7.1 Pay Scale: 
The Government after careful consideration, hereby order that the Revised Master Scales comprising of 32 Grades & 83 stages, as detailed vide the orders in reference 6th read above be made applicable to PTD employees also from the date of their absorption into the Public Transport Department (1st January 2020).

Government after careful consideration, nearby order in at the pay fixation of the PTD employees, who were in service prior to 01.07.2018 shall be done in a twostep process i.e. first by fixing the pay notionally in RPS-2022 as on 01.07.2018 and then by re-fixing the pay in RPS-2022 as on 01.01.2020. In order to equate the fitment to 23% on par with other Govt employees and DA as on 01.07.2018 to former APSRTC employees, Government hereby order for adding a factor of 3.1 % to the Basic Pay as on 01.07.2018 in the APSRTC pay scales of RPS-2017. 

A prescription has also been made in respect of pay fixation of employees who have joined duty in the APSRTC between 01-07-2018 and 01.01.2020. In case any Public Transport Department employee, the gross total emoluments (sum total of Pay and Allowances), as fixed on 01.01.2020 in Revised Pay Scales, 2022, falls short of his / her total emoluments in the existing APSRTC scales, such shortfall shall be treated as Personal Pay to be absorbed in future increases in pay and allowances. 

(a) Pay fixation for PTD employees who are in service prior to 01-07-2018 Step-I: Notional pay fixation in RPS-2022 as on 01.07.2018 
Since the RPS-2022 for the State Government employees would be effective from 01.07.2018, for the sake of parity, in the first step the pay of the PTD employees have to be notionally fixed in the RPS-2022 as on 01.07.2018. There is a small gap of only three months between the effective dates of the 2013 Pay Revisions for the State Government and the APSRTC employees, it would be more than compensated for, due to the additional stepping up benefit accruing to them for the purpose of the fresh pay fixation on 01.07.2018 to bring the two streams of employees on equal footing. Accordingly the following principle for notional pay fixation of PTD employees in the RPS-2022: 

i. In respect of APSRTC employees, who are in employment from a date prior to 01.07.2018, a factor of 3.1% is added to the basic pay as on 01.07.2018 in the APSRTC RPS-2017. The basic pay so arrived shall be used for fixing the pay in the State Govt Revised Pay Scales (RPS) 2022. 
Alternatively, the Basic Pay as on 01.07.2018 in the APSRTC RPS 2017 shall be multiplied by a fitment factor of 1.031 to arrive the revised basic pay applicable to the post in the State Government RPS2022. 
If the figure so arrived doesn't match with the existing stages in RPS -22, pay shall be fixed at the stage next above the figure arrived. If an employee's pay, when fixed as above, falls short of the minimum in the relevant revised pay scale, it shall be fixed at the minimum of the scale. If the amount so fixed exceeds the maximum of the appropriate revised scale, the difference shall be treated as personal pay and should be absorbed in future pay increases including due to similarly after reducing the basic pay to a lower stage in the time scale due to imposition of punishment in a disciplinary action, if any, etc. between 01.07.2018 and 01.01.2020. 
An illustration demonstrating the Pay Fixation in RPS-2022 for employees who are in service prior to 01-07-2018 is attached as Annexure-II. 

(b) Pay fixation for PTD employees who joined service after 01-07-2018
  In respect of APSRTC employees, who joined service between 01.07.2018 and 01.01.2020, firstly the pay as on the date of joining shall be fixed notionally in the applicable Pay Scale of RPS-2022. To this notional pay annual increment, if any, fallen due up to 01-01-2020 may be added to arrive at the pay as on 01-01-2020. An illustration demonstrating the Pay Fixation in RPS-2022 for employees who joined service after 01-07-2018 is attached as Annexure-II. 

7.4 Grade Pay 
The element of Grade Pay is not compatible with the concept of Master Scale, with the introduction of which the Grade Pay shall be assumed to merge with the Basic Pay and abolition of Grade Pay in respect of the PTD employees in the interest of proper integration of PTD employees with the other employees of the Government. 

8. Dearness Allowance (DA) 
The Dearness Allowance of PTD employees with effect from 01-01-2020 (date of absorption) shall be the same as the Dearness Allowance fixed by the State Government for all its employees. 

9. House Rent Allowance (HRA)

The existing Stagnation Grade Scale Scheme of APSRTC is abolished on absorption of its employees into Government service. In lieu thereof, the PTD employees would be extended the benefit of Automatic Advancement Scheme (AAS) on par with Government Employees as prescribed vide the G.O in the reference 6th read above. 
The benefit of Automatic Advancement Scheme shall be allowed up to and inclusive of Grade 25 (Rs.76,730-1,62,780) in the revised scales.
