Finally the West Bengal Government has notified the increase of age with effect from 01.01.2017. Click here to see the notification Service Rule Amendment Increase of age 875-F(P) Dt 13.02.2017 . But there is certain unwarranted confusion among the students. That is why we are trying to explain it as per our knowledge in this article  “Clarification regarding Age increase of WBCS Group A B C D”

Explanation:

First of all please keep in mind that Group A, B , C , D , as mentioned in W B Service rule is different from WBCS Group A, B , C , D though the name is same.

As per Service Rule the groups are classified as per pay rules, latest of which is ROPA (Revision of Pay & Allowances 2009).  Click here to see relevant pages of the rule WBS-ROPA-Rules-2009.

The Govt. of West Bengal abolished the system of classification of employees into Gazetted, Non-Gazetted and Fourth Grade Services vide GO No. 10606-F dated 25.09.1978 and grouping of services introduced. At present as per West Bengal Services Revision of Pay & Allowances, 2009, Government employees are classified as Group A, Group B, Group C and Group D in the following manner (Clarification regarding Age increase of WBCS Group A B C D):–

Group A – Government employees holding all posts in the pay band Nos. 4 and 5 with grade pay ranging from Rs. 4,400 to Rs. 10,000.
Group B – Government employees holding all posts in the pay band No. 3 with grade pay ranging from Rs. 3,200 to Rs. 4,100.
Group C – Government employees holding all posts in the pay band No. 2 with grade pay ranging from Rs. 1,900 to Rs. 2,900.
Group D – Government employees holding all posts in the pay band No. 1 with grade pay ranging from Rs. 1,700 to Rs. 1,800.
