Respected Sharmaji
It has been learnt that the Grade Pay of IP is likely to be upgraded to 4600/- at par with Inspector Income tax etc and such order clarification has been issued by P& Trg.
Whether DOP has issued order for upgradation of GP for IP. What about other cadre ie, ASP and PSS Gr B officers.

Kindly intimate the present position .
Thanks
