  1. In the clarification given by the Implementation Cell,7th CPC of Finance Ministry dt 3rd Aug,2017,it is stated that for every 2 increments got bunched,a benefit of one increment@3% has to be allowed in revise fixation in 7th CPC pay matrix. Therefore this benefit holds good in respect of notional pay fixation as per Concordance Tables published for giving modified parity to pre-2016 pensioners also. However, this requires specific clarification fro FIN Ministry. So Central Govt Pensioners Associations and Bharat Pensioners Samaj may take up the issue with concerned authorities.
