Salary of IAS Officer 2017

SALARY OF IAS after 7th pay commission

As per the 7th PC, when an officer joins the service as an Officer Trainee (OT/Probationer), he or she is supposed to get –

  1. Rs. 56100 [Level 10 in Pay matrix of 7th PC which is equivalent to Rs 21000 (EP) and Rs 5400 Grade Pay of 6th PC)]; (at the time of writing this there is DA of 4% as well).
  2. But an officer trainee gets less than this amount during his training in the Academy (LBSNAA), Mussoorie because the Academy is essentially paying the probationers on behalf of their state cadres and pays it in the manner of a ‘stipend of sorts’ (The pay arrears are paid by the state governments to the officers when the officers join their states for district training one year later.)

Immediately after 2 years of training an IAS officer is entitled to get -Rs 57800 ( an increase from Rs 56100 which one got during training, taking into account the seniority).
