Timescale shall always be granted with immediate effect, on the recommendation of relevant TSC, and after the approval of appointing authority for that higher timescale;(v) grant of timescale shall not be considered as promotion within the meaning of Section-9 of Civil Servants Act, 1973; (vi) the substantive pay scale of timescale beneficiary shall be original scale possessed by civil servant on regular basis through initial appointment or by means of promotion;(vii) on award of timescale the pay of civil servant shall be fixed in higher timescale without grant of premature increment;(viii) a civil servant who is awarded timescale during the period between June 1 to November 30, of calendar year can opt for re-fixation of pay presumptively from December 1 of that calendar year with a view to avail benefit of usual annual increment of the year;(ix) on award of timescale the civil servant will be entitled to pay & allowances; service rendered on timescale will be counted for substantive pay scale of sanctioned for that higher timescale;( x) service rendered on timescale will be counted from substantive pay scale of the incumbent;(xi) timescale will not be granted from back date, i.e., it will not be effective before the date of TSC’s meeting;(xii) Timescale will be admissible thrice in whole service. On each eve of promotion, one chance of timescale will be considered lapsed;(xiii) in case a civil servant is promoted before grant of timescale then requisite length of service will be counted with effect from the date of actualization of that promotion; (xiv) a civil servant who is already availing benefit of time scale policy or move up/ placement to higher grades like in case of civil servant in BPS-1 to BPS- 4, drivers/ dispatch riders, superintendent and health personnel, he/ she has to give irrevocable option whether he/ she want to continue with old timescale/ move-up/ placement or new timescale policy; and (xv) each Ministry/ Division/ Department may ensure to seek irrevocable option within one month of issuance of this policy.
