The modification made after 6cpc is the insertion " whose grade pay not above 4800" as the eligibity crieteria in amount instead of the erstwhile basic + DP limit of Rs. 12450/-. However the other crieteria of "Non gazetted Officers" has not been removed.
Thus if your collegue is a non gazetted officer and getting 4800 he is very much eligible for Festival Advance. Whereas if an Administrative Officer, Gazetted rank officer, who has been granted a grade pay of Rs. 4200/4600 will not be eligible for the festival advance.
