Subject ; Fixation of pay and grant of increment in the revised pay structure – clarifications – regarding,

Following the notification of Central Civil Services (Revised Pay) Rules, 2016, this Department has received references seeking clarifications regarding various aspects of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure as also pay fixation and grant of increment in future under revised pay structure. The matter has been considered in this Department and the points of doubts are clarified as under :

Sl.No Point of doubt Clarification
1 As per the provisions of FR 22 (I)(a)(1), the Government servants (other than those appointed on deputation to ex-cadre post or ad hoc basis or on direct recruitment basis) have the option. to be exercised within one month from the date of promotion, to have the pay fixed under this rule from the date of such promotion / appointment or from the date of next increment

Some of the employees, promoted between 01.01.2016 and the date of notification of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 had opted for their pay fixation on promotion/financial up-gradation under MACPS from the date of their next increment in the lower grade. Consequent upon notification of CCS(RP) Rules. 2016 i.e 25th July. 2016. the option submitted by such employees has now turned out to be disadvantageous

Whether such employee may be allowed to revise their option under FR 22 (I)(a)(1) at this stage.

Under the changed circumstances after notification of CCS (RP) Rules. 2016, the employee may be allowed to exercise revised option for fixation of pay under FR 22(I)(a)(1). Such revised option shall be exercised within one month of issue of this OM option so revised, shall be final
2 Whether employees appointed / promoted / granted financial up-gradation during 02.01.2015 and 01 07.2015 will be entitled to grant of one increment on 01.01.2016. Since the provisions of CCS (RP) Rules, 2016 are effective from 01 01,2016, no Increment shall be allowed on 01.01.2016 at the time of fixation of pay in the revised pay structure.
