(i) 66.25 per cent of the net pensionable salary, determined in accordance with the procedure approved by the International Civil Service Commission*, is calculated at each grade and step;
(ii) the amounts in (i) above are grossed up, using the applicable staff assessment rates;
(iii) the amounts in (ii) above, divided by 0.6625 and expressed in local currency, constitute the gross pensionable salary.
(b) The methodology in (a) above shall be applied to the occasion of the first adjustment due to the application of the interim adjustment procedure for net salaries on or after 1 April 1994, should such adjustment take place before a comprehensive salary survey.
2. Adjustment of the gross pensionable salary between comprehensive salary surveys
The gross pensionable salary shall be adjusted on the same day and by the same percentages as the net pensionable salary of participants in the General Service and related categories is adjusted.
* Under the methodology approved by the International Civil Service Commission, the net pensionable salary is the net salary in the salary scales less the non-pensionable component, if any, with the latter being shown separately in the salary scales.
