7th Central Pay Commission award, in many ways, has been a revolutionary due to the active involvement of the environment. This was for the first time when we have transited from Pay Bands to a Pay Matrix system. The method of awarding increments has been modified to a pre calculated stage system in the Defence Pay Matrix, thereby ensuring uniformity. Several old allowances have been merged, some allowances abolished and new ones have been granted.

Level of Ranks for Officers: Level of Ranks for all offrs, incl those from AMC, ADC and RVC but excluding MNS are as under.
