Kindly refer to the discussion, the Staff Side had with you on 12.1.2018 in the National Anomaly Committee meeting. During the discussion, over the admissibility or otherwise of the anomaly items, incidentally, we had represented to the request made by us to allow the employees to revise their option once exercised under Rule 6 of the Revised Pay Rules 2016. We send herewith copy of our communications sent to the Secretary Expenditure in this regard.
As has been pointed out by us, in our letters cited, the interpretation of the benefit of option had been at variance with consequent loss of emoluments to the employees. The intention of the Rules are often ambiguous. In similar situations both at the time of 5th CPC and 6th CPC on our request the Govt. had been good enough to permit revision of option. In the case of 6th CPC the Notification was issued in 2008 (in September 2008) and the option was allowed to be revised up to 31/12/2010, giving benefit for all employees who were promoted / granted ACP / MACP or granted increment up to 31/12/2010.
We therefore request you to kindly allow revision of option to switch over to 7th CPC pay scale / pay matrix to be exercised within three months of the issuance of the orders permitting such revision.
