For Brigs and above : See notes below

Notes :

Capt with two years of service as Capt (total 4 years commissioned service) is elevated to
GP 6600 just as in the civil services,

Major with three years of service as Major (total 9 years commissioned service) is
elevated to GP 7600 as is the case with civilian counterparts,

Lt Col with one year of service as Lt Col (total 14 years of commissioned service) is
upgraded to GP 8900 and Lt Col / Col with total 18 years of service is promoted to GP
10000,

Colonels, Brigs and Maj Gens can stay in GP 10000 while for executive purposes, only
a Maj Gen can be granted the functional signatory powers of a Joint Secretary to Govt
of India to maintain status quo,

Promotions to higher levels, i.e, HAG+ (Lt Gen) and Apex Grade (Lt Gen – Army
Commanders / VCOAS grade) shall continue as hitherto before.

This would be in line with the time based promotions in the civil services and also as
implemented for all Govt Doctors under the Central Govt under the Dynamic Assured
Career Progression Scheme (DACP).
