(22.2) Grant of Higher Initial Pay to Jr.Stenographer. 

(22.2.1) Grant of Higher initial pay to the Junior Stenographers in the C.S.LR. 

The Governing Body of the CSIR at its meeting held on 16.4.1966 has approved of the following recommendations of the Finance Sub-Committee

1)    Stenographers who qualify at a speed of 80 w.p.m. in shorthand may be given the minimum of the scale of Rs.130-300. 

2)    Those who qualify at a speed of 100 w.p.m,. in shorthand may be given a higher start of 4 advance increments.

3)    Those who qualify at  speed of l20 w.p.m. in shorthand be given a higher start of 8 advance increments in the prescribed scale1of Rs.130-300. 

The decision of the Finance Sub-Committee is primarily with reference to future recruits.  However, since this will put future recruits at advantage, compared to the serving Stenographers, it has been decided, in consultation with F.A. to C.S.I.R. that the pay of serving Stenographers who have qualified at a speed of 100w.p.m. prior to 16.4.1966 and whose pay falls below 150/-p.m. may be raised to Rs. 1501-p.m. with effect from 16.4.1966. Similarly the pay of those serving Stenographers who qualified at a speed of 120 w.p.m. prior to 16.4.1966 and whose pay falls short of Rs. 176/- should be raised to Rs. 176/-p.m. with effect from 16.4.1966. Annual increment in both cases would accrue after a full year from the date of such fixation. 

The existing Junior Stenographers, who have not qualified at a speed of 100 w.p.m. or 120 w.p.m. in shorthand, may be allowed to take the test along with outside candidates to show the proficiency for earning the benefit of a minimum of Rs. 150/- and Rs. 176/- with effect from the date of the test.

In accordance with the standing instructions Junior Stenographers working in CSIR and its National Laboratories/Institutes are entitled to the grant of 1/2 advance increments on their qualifying in the proficiency test in shorthand at the speed of 100/120 w.p.m.
