Dear Sirs,

Now, on implementation of 6CPC recommendation, the increment date has been made common, viz. 1st July of every year. In this situation, whether calling for option under FR 22 (I) (a)(1) is required at all? Because, those who get promotion after 2nd January but prior to 30th June will get their pay fixation on promotion from 1st July if they opt for fixation from date of next increment. In case, they opt for fixation from the date of promotion they will loose the following annual increment due on 1st July of the year of Promotion, and DNI will become due by next year of promotion only. The benefits get postponed as in the case of increment in the year 2006 for those who were having increment date during first half of the year in their pre-revised scale.

In the case of promotees of the second half of an year, they will definitely opt from the date of promotion only and no one will opt for promotion from the date of their next increment, which falls only by next year. In their case, the benefits were in time, and in the year 2006 actually their increment got preponed to previous July if they were having increment date in the pre-revised scale during the second half of the year.

Therefore, it is desirable to find a way out to ensure timely promotional benefits without any postponement of increment by 1 year.
As promotion is not an every year's affair for a Govt. servant as in the case of Annual Increment it is better to give the entire benefits of pay fixation on the date of promotion itself, without any postponement of next increment. For example,if a person got promoted on 1.3.2008, his pay fixation on promotion will be done as if he had opted for fixation from the date of promotion itself. However, at the same time, his regular increment due on July 1 shall also
be paid unmindful of the promotion. Any way he is drawing annual increment after a period of 12 months only. Hence promotion has nothing to do with his increment. The option may be applicable only in pre-revised scales, where increment dates were varying during the entire year. Now the situation is not so.

I am therefore of the view that calling for fixation of pay on promotion is a time consuming exercise and compulsory postponement of promotional benefits to ensure annual increment in the present day's scenerio.
The Govt. may like to reconsider and modify the existing Rules to that extent.

Similarly, for the year 2006, as a one time measure, the increment can be paid on 1st July 2006 even if their Increment date in the pre-revised scale falls during the first half of the year. This will avoid grievance and also remove anomaly if any in this regard.

I request our Members to take up further.

Best Regards.

At the outset, I congratulate my learned friend, for a wonderful and well analysed article.
(2) The plea, for granting an extra increment as a one time measure in order to remove the disadvantage for the now famous " February- June -Increment Earners,can not be considered "unjustified" by any stretch of imagination. One wonders as to how GOI has not considered this problem ,even at this stage. (Obviously, the hardship might have slipped out of sight when the implementation of CPC Report was finalised.)

(3) Coming to the main issue, in my view, there is still need for exercising option in the case of promotion/ACP between 2nd of January to 30th June of any year from 2006.
(4) In the intial days, I was of the same opinion of the author, in that, the promotion has no nexus with annual increment. But, I realsied that the thing is not that much simple, when I made a deeper study of the words used in para 2.2.11 (page 40). For the benefit of the readers, these are reproduced herein below;-
" date of increments in all cases will be first of July.Employees completing six months and above in the scale [/U][/B]as on July First will be eligible"
Further, the Resolution, vide Part A (1) VII(iii), has accepted this recommendation.
The words, "scale" may be interpretted to mean "Grade Pay". Even otherwise, whereever there is change in Pay Band on account of promotion, certainly, these words are going to stand in the way of getting increased pay on promotion between 2nd of Jan and 30th of June, and next increment on July First of the same year.
(5) In my view, in such cases, option may have to be exercised.
The opinion expressed herein by me does not take away the credit to the original author, my learned friend. Sunderjee.
Weldone, dear Sunderjee,
With regards'
Badri Mannargudi.

My Basic as on Jan 2006 was 6200 in the scale 5500-175-9000(STA). I have promoted as Technical Officer GrIII(3) in the month of August 2006 my pay has been fixed at 6700/- in the scale 6500-200-10500. Later in the sixth pay commission they merged some scales (CSIR) - 6500-200-10500 (grade pay of 4200) has been upgraded to 7450-225-11500 with a grade pay of 4600.

If i select the option -from the date of my Promotion i.e august 2006 fixing of my pay should be 7450 multiplied with 1.86 and adding a grade pay 4600 know?

where my basic should be fixed..now?? any body help me pls.

My dear pop4u. I would try to help you in fixation of your pay. First of all I would like to correct your impression that on promotion you would be getting higher fixation equvalent to higher pre revised pay scale. If you opt for VI CPC w e f 01 01 06, your revised basic pay would be 6200 x 1.86 = 11532 or 11540 + Grade pay of 4200 = 15740. In july 06, you would get an increment. Then your revised basic pay would become 11540 x 1. 03 = 11886 + 4200 = 16086 In Aug06, on promotion, your basic pay would become 11886 x 1.03 + 4600 = 16842.
If you opt for VI CPC w e f Aug 08 after your promotion in pre revised pay scale with pre revised basic pay 6700, your revised basic pay would be 6700 x 1. 86 = 12462 or 12470 + Grade pay 4600 = 17070. In this case you would be loosing arrears from 01 01 06 to July06 but 17070 - 16842 = 228 + DA additionally would be available every month onwards. I hope I am right in my calculations.

Dear Shri Nitesh,

As your pay on 1.1.06 was 9900 and your promoted rank's pre revised
pay being 11600, you may like to opt for fixation of pay in the revised
structure from the date of promotion, viz. 10.1.2006.

10.1.2006 11600 x 1.86 = Pay in PB + GP 66oo
1.7.2007 3% incr.(on existing PB+GP) to be added with Pay in PB
1.7.2008 3% incr. (on existing PB+GP) to be added with Pay in PB
The Pay in PB + GP 6600 as on 1.7.2008 will comprise of your basic.
Please crosscheck with yr. present basic pay today.

Best Regards.

Dear friend nitesh

The explanation given by Shri Sundar ar is complete but please check if you have still an option of pay fixation. The date of three months has been over now and it is not permissible to revise the option once submitted.
